I know… I know.
BEAUTY IS ONLY SKIN DEEP but partially revealing your skin in the decent areas speaks something about your health and self-confidence. That’s why everyone finds you attractive.
Halter tops and dresses are sexy and their designs are endless. But you can’t just wear any bra underneath. Strapped bras and bras with hook and eye closures at the back would spoil your beauty appeal in some halter neck tops.
What kind of bra to wear with a halter top?
Let’s see the bra options that you have.

1. Halter Neck Bras
This directly sounds like a perfect fit for a halter top and it is. It frees up the shoulders to match your halter cloth and its halter strap will hide underneath your top.
Some halter bras have a back band while others are backless. The neckband lifts and supports your breasts, enabling you to avoid a pesky hook and eye closure at the back.
I don’t know which halter bra is the worst but I couldn’t resist this sexy FlyCC Women’s Shiny Metallic Keyhole Crop Top Backless Rave Bandeau Vest Bra. If your breasts are medium-sized, you will love this sexy and shiny bra for parties, dancing, night-outs, and even as beachwear. It lifts and brings your boobs together for an attractive cleavage through the keyhole.
The neck and back ties are adjustable so you can elongate or shorten them to fit your size. Just remember to make double knots so that they don’t untie in public.
2. Strapless Bras
A strap free bra would match the limited back detail of most halter tops. Even though it doesn’t have shoulder straps, a good strapless bra is lined with an underwire and silicone so that it holds and supports your breasts without slipping.
No matter your breast size, small to extra-large, you will be excited by the comfortable lift, support, and non-slippage of DELIMIRA Women’s Slightly Lined Lift Great Support Lace Strapless Bra. It’s not expensive but it’s way better than some high-end bras. The bra cups are lined with silicone strips so they stay in place even when you’re physically active. The breast cups are also padded and lined with underwire so they nicely push up and shape your breasts.
And the cleavage is out of the ordinary- sexy but still decent to depict self-confidence and maturity.
3. Convertible Bra
This is also called a multiway bra and it’s the best for versatility. You can detach the straps and wear the bra under any halter outfit. You can also change the strap design from traditional, one shoulder strap, crisscross, or halter strap, and use the brassiere with any of your other clothes.
Calvin Klein makes impressive bras and many have bought this Calvin Klein Women’s Seductive Comfort Lift Strapless Multiway Bra based on buyer reviews and they were not disappointed. Besides convertible and detachable straps, the cups are demi and lightly padded to help you achieve boobs that look rounder and fuller. The sideband is wide to help with the lift and prevent side boobs.

4. Backless or Adhesive Bra Cups
Adhesive bra cups have an inner silicone lining that makes them ‘stick’ to your breasts and stay in place without the need for shoulder straps or a hook and eye strap at the back. The bra cups pair can be in separate pieces or conjoined.
Many adhesive backless bras won’t adhere to your breasts for a day but that’s not the case with Niidor Adhesive Strapless Sticky Invisible Push up Silicone Bras for Backless Dress with Nipple Covers. They have high-strength but skin-friendly silicone adhesive, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off or about skin irritation when you sweat in the cups.
They fit very well and users with relatively large breasts like E and F sizes have had them stay put even with activities such as gardening and playing outdoors with kids. The fabric is 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex and so they’re moisture-wicking and breathable.
If you only wear them occasionally, the silicone can remain sticky for a couple of years. You just need to wet the sticky surface with warm water and a little detergent, then air dry them. Remember to cover the sticky part with the plastic backing it came with after every use. Wax papers can also do if you’ve lost the original covers.
5. Bandeau Bra or Tube Bra
If you don’t like bra straps and you still don’t like hooks, wires, boning, and padding, then what remains is a bandeau bra. It’s basically a strapless band of cloth that wraps around your bust. If you know your bra size accurately and you order the right size, a bandeau or tube bra will feel and support you better than a strapless bra, ensuring that your girls don’t sag or jiggle as you move.
ANGOOL Strapless Comfort Wireless Bandeau Bra with Anti-Slip Silicone feels so good that you may not want to take it off. It’s lightweight, stretchy, and unpadded, so soft that it feels like a second skin. The material is also awesomely breathable and the lower edge is fitted with slip-resistant silicone to keep the bandeau in place all day long.
The only disadvantage with bandeaus and tube bras is that you can’t wear them under a fully open-back or low-back halter top.
6. Halter Bralette
Like the halter bra, a halter bralette has its strap around the neck and it should be your choice when you want the comfort of a wireless and cupless bra. A bralette has a more relaxed design and structure than a bra and it focuses more on comfort and fashion than function. The fabric is always fashionable, with lace overlay, mesh, or microfiber.
It’s for this reason that many women don’t shy away from showing the bralette out of the edges of the outer garment. Its design is not considered indecent for showing through, unlike other undergarments. Rolewpy Floral Lace Low Back Halter Bralette is beautiful, comfortable, and as charming as a bralette can get.
7. Nipple Covers or Nipple Pasties
Trying to style an open front halter top with an exposed sternum such as Verdusa Women’s Sexy Sleeveless Halter Criss Cross Self Tie Backless Crop Top with bra cups may not work and this is where nipple pasties come in. Also, some halter attires are so tight-fitting that you can’t wear a bra with them. The parts covering the breasts might be designed like bra cups but you may want to add nipple concealers, just in case.
Silicone nipple covers are small cups designed to hide the nipples and areola. They do not offer any support, shaping, or lift to the breasts and thus they are suitable for lightweight boobs.
NIPPIES Reusable Nipple Covers for Women have a medical-grade adhesive that will not irritate your skin all day long. They’re ultrathin and nude-colored to make you seem like you don’t have an undergarment, but the good thing is that people cannot see your nipples through a sheer top.
8. Breast Tape
If you fear that your halter top strap design might slip in public exposing your boob, then you can choose breast tape over nipple petals. Boob tape is a sticky strip of fabric that you can use to cover, support, and lift your breasts in whatever way you would like them. You can run the tape all the way from your underbust to over your shoulders for maximum lift and support to your girls. You can also bring your breasts together for enhanced cleavage.
Medical grade breast tape such as Secret Weapons New Boob Tape – Breast Lift Tape is safe for your skin and it’s also breathable so you can wear it the whole day once you get used to it. Check this guide on how to tape your breasts.
What is a halter top?
The word halter is derived from the German language and it basically means “that by which anything is held”. It originally meant a rope or strap with a noose or headstall for tethering or leading horses, cattle, and such other tamed animals.
A halterneck attire or halter top is mostly sleeveless and shoulderless and for support, it has a strap that goes around the neck. Most halter tops are backless with low back tie straps, though a few have a narrow strip of cloth that runs along the middle of the back.
What’s the difference between a halter top and a crop top?
A halter top is a style of top wear with a necktie. It’s usually sleeves and shoulderless and the lower part may or may not cover the lower abdomen. A crop top is a style of top wear where the lower part is cut off at different lengths to expose the lower torso. A crop top may have sleeves and shoulders and it may or may not have a necktie. It then goes without saying that a sleeveless, shoulder-free top with a neck strap but with the lower torso cut out is a halter crop top.
A bra to wear with a halter top should have halter straps to match the top, or else it should be strapless and backless. You can also go with bandeau bra, nipple covers, or breast tape, depending on your taste and the halter top design.
