Common Bra Mistakes to Avoid when Wearing Kurtis

All about lingerie Kurti-sy and etiquette

Indian fashion is so much fun! It’s all about mix and match, colours, fabrics, styles and so much more. From culottes and ethnic tops to the casual jeans and kurti look, it’s all about fusion and style. Every one of us loves a kurti/kurta look for special occasions and even every day. If anything, bollywood has given us major feels over the last year with the lead actresses donning pretty kurtas all through.

Now, we have mentioned time and again the importance of the right bra and how it transforms your outfit. This time we’re discussing the common bra mistakes made when wearing kurtis and Indian ethnic tops.

All you have to do is identify those mistakes and avoid them.

1. Aesthetics

non-padded bra

For that smooth and well-fitted look, avoid wearing a darted bra or a lace bra under a plain, light-coloured or thin material kurtis. Always wear a seamless bra even if you choose a non-padded one. By doing so, you will achieve a clean look with no visible bra lines.

2. Fit

T-shirt bra

While knowing your bra size is super essential, it’s important to keep a check on what type of bra you are choosing to wear with your kurta. Pick a simple T-shirt bra or a seamless cotton bra if you are going for a heavily embroidered piece to allow the embroidery to sit well. A seamed bra might ruin the shape and your overall silhouette.

3. Colour

Colour is key! The rule of the thumb is to always choose a nude or sandalwood coloured bra under a light outfit and not a white one! Yes, we know you’ve heard otherwise but a nude bra is less likely to stand out.

4. Silhouette and different kurta styles

Silhouette and different kurta styles

It is very important to understand which kind of bra works with different kurti styles. If you’re wearing a regular cotton or everyday kurta, then a T-shirt bra or a non-padded bra is your holy grail. If you are choosing something that has a halter neck or is an off-shoulder, then go for a multiway bra. That way, you don’t have to worry about whether the strap is peeping out from some corner.

If your choice is a shimmery, heavy or embroidered kurta, be sure to avoid seamed bras again or the shape of your bust will look more conical and might ruin your overall look. Choose a light coloured minimiser bra instead. It lifts the bust tissue and helps center them to add shape and form.

5. Necklines, necklines, necklines

plunge neckline bras

When it comes to the neckline of the kurta, we recommend choosing plunge neckline bras in case it’s a deep neck. A deep U-back strap in the case of a unique back style.

From splurging unnecessarily on clothes we don't really need to picking up a poorly fitting piece of lingerie just because it's on sale, there are some style mistakes that we're all guilty of from time to time...Put your guilt aside, we’re here to save you from making more fashion mistakes. Always keep in mind the above mistakes and avoid them like vampires avoid garlic.
