Big brands are now selling matching bras and pants and they are a success! The Kardashian jumped on that train and I don’t see it get it weaker anytime soon!
So, let’s dive into the universe of fashion and learn the ways and types of matching bras and pants sets!
Two-piece Bra and pants set
It basically consists of a bra, which can vary from millions, (literally millions), of designs and models matching with pants, that again, it can vary from several styles and models.
They can be tight to the body, or all loose and airy. Which creates versatility to this piece, allowing you to wear it for different occasions. From a nightclub to a sweet afternoon on the beach with your friends.
Wearing a bra as a top
At first, it may seem a little intimidating but bras can make the most beautiful tops to combine with trendy cool pants! The most popular combination when it comes to matching bra and pants set is a bralette and a fun loose pair of pants.
Bralettes are a great option to start styling bras to go out because they have a neutral shape and various styles that make it easier to compare with a shirt.
If you are feeling a little bit intimidated by wearing lingerie to go out, try putting a jacket over it and take baby steps! Always prioritize how it makes you feel, and keep in mind that styles differ and what someone likes might not be your cup of tea. (which is totally ok!)
See-through two-piece bra and pants set
When matching bra and pants set started to get trendy models and girls around the globe were wearing it at the beach! I know what you’re thinking, pants? On the beach?! I know the concept sounds sketchy but the looks they were able to create with matching bra and pants set were simply to die for!
They were typically made from crochet or very thin see-through fabric to give lightness and not overheat during those hot summer days.
This style is great for taking cool pictures at the beach or at the pool and to cover up a little bit if you’re not 100% comfortable wearing a bikini
