What bra to wear with a Plunge / deep V neck

Plunge

The options

This is for the kind of neckline that is too low cut for a normal plunge bra.

If you want to wear a bra the only type you will be able to use is a U plunge bra, they are specially designed for this type of clothing. If they aren’t low enough you will need to go braless. You can use nipple covers to hide the shape of your nipples. If you aren’t happy with the height of your breasts and want some lift you can use breast lift tape to achieve this. Or do a DIY version of this by taping your breasts.

Whether you wear a bra or not, with clothing this low it’s a really good idea to use fashion tape to stick the edge of the fabric to your skin and stop if falling open.
