The Best Bras to Rock the Super Sheer Trend of 2021

Via @normani, @best.dressed, @kimkardashian

Alright, so maybe the ultra-sheer and mesh trends qualify as carry-overs from 2020. However, who really remembers what they wore last year when we were just entering the WFH era? We’re guessing that, for many, even invoking the year only conjures up images of sweatpants and loungewear galore. Yikes. Fortunately, with recent hopes rising as steadily as the warming temperature of springtime, it seems that the sunny days ahead will see the return of trends that aren’t the security blankets of cozy pants (although, come on, they’re never going to not be an option). With this in mind, here’s the tea: this is the year for super sheer! But how, my dear, does one make their bra disappear under a top so sheer? Let us interfere! Okay, enough of the rhymes. The point is, choosing the right bra that smooths, shapes, and all but vanishes under your best see-through fits is a true art. Luckily for you, it is one that we here at Skarlett Blue have mastered. Read on for our list of the best bras to help you absolutely rock the sheer trend of 2021.


The Best Disappearing Acts

Breathless Full Coverage T-Shirt Bra in Cashmere

Our Breathless Full Coverage T-Shirt Bra has the smoothest molded contour pads made of Nylon/Spandex, making it positively perfect for a sleek look under your sheerest of shirts.


Prestige Wireless Push-Up Bra in Cashmere

Prestige is the lightweight contender for all your mesh, gossamer, and chiffon fits. With its air foam push-up pads and stretch Jersey fabric, Prestige will keep you up with no wires attached. If you’re looking for something that will essentially act as a second skin under filmy fabrics, look no further than Prestige.


Honey Multi-Way T-Shirt Bra in Gleam/White (also available in Cashmere)

Comfortable, convertible, and chic— Honey does them all the best. Period. Combining the comfort and shaping of your typical t-shirt bra’s stretchy foam pads with floral lace accents at the center and back, Honey is destined to be layered under your transparent tops. Sleek and smoothing while still lending a little lacy something to your ensemble.


The Best Show-Offs for Sheer

Minx Balconette Bra in Gleam (also available in Cashmere/Blush)

Minx is for when you’re all-lace, all the way. It’s a Skarlett Blue online favorite for a reason, and that reason has to do with the fact that it is simply too cute to not show off. We’ve seen our most fashion-forward influencers pair Minx with the structured fit of blazers for years, so why not make gauzy garments the next go-to for this lacy classic?


Empower Full Balconette Bra in Nylon/Sheer

Empower is one of the most subtly unique bras on the Skarlett Blue site. The geometric lace pattern of the outer cups certainly features in Empower, though it won’t be glaringly obvious when wearing a sheer or mesh top. For when you feel like keeping it on the DL, but still want that added twist since dressing for yourself is one of the best ways to channel your feminine power.


Siren T-Shirt Bra in Nylon

If you listen closely, you can just hear Siren calling to be seen under your see-through stylings. Siren has the allure of your most basic and comfortable T-shirt bra with the edgy addition of diamond lace and a scalloped neckline. After all, who can resist the call of darling diamonds daring for a dynamic, diaphanous (an elevated alternative for “sheer”) look.
