Bras are an essential part of a woman’s everyday wardrobe, and they pretty much all look very similar. Rounded cups, bands, and straps make up the typical bra, though they are made of different materials and have slight variations.
If you're looking for a bra that’s outside the box, there are quite a few that fit the bill. From unique shapes to bizarre strap designs, there are some extremely weird bras out there. So, whether you are looking for something new to shake up your day-to-day style or just want to see some crazy bras, here are the top five weirdest bras ever made.
What’s in a Bra?
When it comes to finding a good bra, the fit is vital. Your bra should fit comfortably, give ample support, and hold out for an entire day. The right bra has a strong, sturdy band, straps that rest on your shoulders without pinching or slipping, and cups that hold the girls well.
Weird bras may have some aspects of a good bra; however, they have a unique way of getting there. Odd doesn’t mean it doesn’t do the job. While some bras are just for show, a few of them function as a regular bra. Let’s have a look at what makes these bras so strange.
1. U-Shaped, or Plunge Demi Bras
These bras look like they wouldn’t hold anything. It is possible to pull this little number off but with the right breast shape. These bras have a decent amount of lift, and if you’re looking for more, some options have push-up inserts. Unlike other bras, this strange design features a daring deep U-shape. The cups hug the sides of the breasts, and the underwire band gives the girls the support needed.
U-shaped bras are great if you want to wear a top and show off what your mama gave you. However, there is risk involved if you tend to suffer from spillage. These weird bras are the perfect fit, though, for any fashionista in need of a plunging neckline.
2. Lace-up Corset Bras
Can’t choose between wearing a corset and a bra? Why not have both. Lace-up corset bras are the ultimate get for those who want cleavage control. These bras may go on like any other bra, but the lace-up front gives you a little extra boost.
If you want to go even more extra, there’s even a version that sticks directly on your chest. It is backless, and the ties pull your breasts together. Of course, that design may not work for everyone. The ties in your corset bra may stick out if you wear the wrong top.
3. Super Convertible Bra
Weird yet versatile, the super convertible bra becomes whatever you need it to be. Like the U-Shaped bra, it has a deep plunge, but it can be altered to fit many styles. It can be a low-back bra, a halter, a low plunge, or a demi push-up. It also doubles as a backless bra or a cross-back bra. If you get past the look, it can give you the support you need, and it can prove to be an asset if you like to switch up your wardrobe often.
Normally, you might need a few different bras to fit the plethora of styles available. However, it might be nice to get the job done with just one. It still looks incredibly odd, though.
4. Pocket Bras
Want to head out for the night and leave your bag at home? It can be difficult to find pockets, especially since women’s clothes are notorious for having no pocket space. That can all change with these fancy pocket bras! These bras are not the most flattering design, but they do have workable pockets.
Slip your card, some makeup, and maybe even a key in there, and you can ditch your bag at home. The downside is that these bras make it challenging to reach the pockets. Plus, once you tuck away the goods, movement can be a little bit of a hassle, especially if your arm is rubbing against your card or key. Of course, if you’re just going for a run or walk and you want to have your things, this could work in a pinch.
5. A Wine Bra
Need some wine on-the-go, but you want to be discrete about it? Have no fear with the wine bra! No, seriously. This thing exists. The goal is to fill the bra up with wine and drink from the tube that attaches to it. While it may seem like a fantastic idea, this bra doesn’t exactly look as low-key as you’d like.
The cups are misshapen, and it drains one breast at a time. Plus, you can see the tube coming out of your bra. As a gag gift or a silly thing to wear at a party, this bra could work. But it doesn’t offer anything in support, and it’s got to be a pain to refill once emptied. You’re probably better off bringing a flask or drinking from a regular cup instead.
Not a Matter of Looks
While some have a practical use and others don’t work as well as you’d hope, there are some pretty strange bras on the market. Of course, these aren’t the only ones. Fashion has assured us that there are plenty of unique bras and bralettes out there for anyone daring enough to try them. As they say, don’t knock them until you try them.
