If you’re like me, when summer rolls around, all you want to do is bust out the sleeveless tops, dresses and jumpsuits. What about those off the shoulder tops that everyone is wearing? Ladies, you’ll need a strapless bra for your ladies. Strapless bras get a band rap; in terms of annoying fashion problems, having your bra shimmy down to your hips is up there with untangling a necklace. Hate, hate, hate! To fight gravity, there are tricks to keep things in place, which have been designed into the Madalynne X Simplicity 8437. First, the band is narrow-er. Not super wide, but not super skinny. It was designed it to be a happy medium between supportive and flattering. Additionally, the seams all around the bra have channeling applied on the inside – it elevates the bra from fitting like a bandeau to having structure and support.
