Shade Match: A Guide to Coordinating Bra Colours with Your Attire

In fashion, the significance of selecting the right undergarments is often underestimated. It might seem insignificant, but not only will that affect your overall look, it will also make you feel more comfortable and confident. You won’t have to worry whether people are looking at you because your bra strap isn’t matching your blouse. And even though that’s not the biggest problem, it can still affect our mood, so it’s best to avoid situations like that.

Classic Neutral

When it comes to timeless, elegant and classic bras, there’s a trio with which you cannot go wrong. White, black and nude are colours that are an essential part of every wardrobe because they are versatile and fit seamlessly with a variety of outfits, completing and elevating them.


In the vast spectrum of lingerie, white bras stand out as timeless pieces that go beyond any trend and season. Their versatility is unmatched and their allure lies in the ability to blend with every attire without obstructing the look. Unlike coloured bras that can clash with certain outfits, these undergarments will seamlessly incorporate into a wide range of outfits and will never steal the spotlight.

White is also a symbol of elegance, sophistication and simplicity, so you cannot go wrong with a white bra. Another advantage is the ability to enhance your natural beauty. It’s a colour that complements every skin tone, making it universally flattering. Whether you have fair, medium or dark skin, it can accentuate your assets and create a stunning contrast.

When can you wear a white bra on? You can wear it in summer under your favourite sundresses without having to worry about it clashing with the colour or the design. Most summer dresses have warm tones with floral designs on them and your white brassiere will fit right in. If you want to showcase your white bralette or bra you have on, you can choose to wear a sheer top that complements it. If you’re an active person and like to work out, don’t let the bra stop you. You can wear your white active bra under your sports bra if you feel like your sports bra isn’t giving you enough support.

When it comes to the fabric, it’s important to consider both comfort and style. The fabric can greatly affect how your bra feels against your skin and how it looks under different outfits. The most popular fabrics for white bras are cotton, lace and silk. You can choose the one that works best for you and your body.


The black bra is another essential in every woman’s wardrobe. It’s sophisticated, and elegant, and goes well with darker colours. You can wear it under any type of dress, with or without a neckline, and whenever the bra straps are showing it doesn’t look that tacky. The only time when you shouldn’t be wearing a black bra is underneath a white shirt because it will be visible almost always unless that is something that you’re going for. Then, go ahead.


Just like the white and black bras, the nude ones are also an essential part of your wardrobe. You might think it’s a little bit dull, but you cannot go wrong with this choice since it basically goes with everything. You can say that nude bras are even more versatile than the white bras so you won’t regret having one in a skin tone that matches yours. You can wear them under any outfit as they’re designed to be almost invisible under your clothes. Some examples of what you can wear them with include white shirts, dresses, and even sheer tops, and they will fit seamlessly with everything.

Bold Colours

If you find these previously mentioned colours a little bit boring, and you want to stand out and make an impression, maybe pick a bra that’s gonna make you feel sexier and more confident. This could be one that’s in a bolder colour, such as red or even pink. Let’s look at how you can wear bras like that:

  • Red – This is considered the colour of passion, and it also exudes confidence. Wearing a red bra can even be your statement piece and you can wear just a blazer on top of it, combine it with a nice pair of pants or jeans and you will look fabulous. If you’re not comfortable with that, you can wear it under any outfit. Believe it or not, red bras can’t be noticed under a white tee (unless it’s made from a sheer fabric), which is great when you want to feel confident but still won’t show off your bra.
  • Pink – Bras in pink are feminine and playful, and everyone who wants to embrace their softer side or wants to look more feminine can always get one. They pair well with softer colours, such as peach-coloured dresses or shirts, cute summer dresses, or you can wear them again as a statement piece with a sheer top or a blazer on top of them.
  • Maroon – Just like the red one, the maroon-coloured bra is a riskier and sexier choice. You can pair this one with dresses or blouses that are the same colour, or even similar to it.

Prints and Patterns

Patterned, print, and colourful bras are cute, and fun, and can lift your spirits as you get dressed in the morning. But, how do you make sure that nobody sees your colourful bra under your clothes? You should stay away from white or lighter colours, and maybe try wearing darker colours that will keep the pattern from peaking through. As long as your top is darker than the darkest colour on your bra, you’ll be fine.

Take Risks

Being fashionable is all about having fun and taking risks. So, don’t be afraid to take risks with your lingerie choices. Experiment with bold colours, designs and patterns that suit your personality. If you like blue, wear blue bras, or if green is more your colour, feel free to wear green bras. It’s all about you enjoying and having fun while feeling like your true self. The bra isn’t just an undergarment – often, it’s a fashion accessory and a form of self-expression, so have fun with it and let your individuality shine.
