Many women make the mistake of not putting enough importance on what they’re wearing under their clothing including petite women. Not wearing the proper petite lingerie will result in the clothes on top not looking or feeling as good as they should. That’s why it’s important to have a variety of bra types in your wardrobe to ensure that you have the right bra to wear at all times.

Two pieces of petite lingerie every woman should have in her wardrobe are a racerback bra and a multifunction bra. Here is a brief look at each of these bras including how they work and when you would wear them.

Racerback Bras

A racerback bra is ideal for those times you don’t want your bra straps showing under a tricky top or when you find that your regular bra straps are slipping too easily off your shoulders. A racerback bra has straps that cross each other or meet in a “T” shape across the back. This type of bra typically has a front closure due to the special back design, although some racerback bras have back closures or simply slip over the head.

The design of racerback bras helps keep the straps from slipping off the shoulders during movement while providing ample breast support. A racerback bra is great for wearing under tank tops and sleeveless tops & dresses because it won’t show the bra straps. Some racerback bras provide a bit more push-up effect than normal bras to lift the breasts for a smooth, rounded look.

Convertible racerback bras such as ours, feature adjustable back straps. Owning this type of bra is very beneficial as it can be worn as a racerback or as a regular bra. When a convertible racerback bra is worn as a regular bra, the straps are closer together in the back than in a regular bra so it will prevent straps from slipping if you have narrower shoulders.

Multifunction Bras

Multifunction bras feature detachable straps, allowing them to be worn in various ways to fit under a variety of different clothing styles. You can wear a multifunction bra as a standard bra or as a bra with a crossover back. An X-back bra is perfect to wear under summer tops or to prevent slipping straps.

A multifunction bra with a low cut back is ideal to wear under a backless dress. Many petite women rave over multifunction bras, as these bras are versatile, comfortable to wear and come with the perfect amount of lift and padding for a smooth and attractive look.

Petite women with smaller busts benefit from wearing bras with structured cups. Even though a lot of support is not necessary, the cup shaping provides definition to the bust. Racerback and multifunction bras with soft molded underwire support create lift and shape to enhance the bust line without creating a ridge in the clothing along the edge of the cups.
