Bra under leotard

What is a good bra to wear under a leotard when a sports bra wouldn't work? i.e. spaghetti strap leo

Preferably it would not show too much...


P.S. I have seen leos with built in bras/cups...are these effective/comfortable? If so, what's a good one you would recommend?

I would recommend the shelf bras within Balera leotards. They are my favortie and ohhhhhh so comfotable! I think BodyWrapper leotards would be my second choice. The Capezio Empress Leotard also has a good shelf bra in it as well. Beyond that, I can usually get away with just a good pair of body tights as my breasts are a little bit on the small side and my current dance classes are comprised of all females.

It very much depends on your size as to how well a shelf bra will work for you.

Most of my dancers wear a sports bra under their leotards with Lululemon or Ivivva being the most popular brands, mostly because we're in Canada and those are readily available to us here.

When my dancers are performing though they need to have a nude bra and pin it into their costume so that it won't show, for that they normally go to a regular bra shop like La Senza or Victoria Secrets.

I absolutely LOVE the bratek leos! I'm a 36DD and it's the only leo that I don't have to wear a bra with. I hate spaghetti strap leos because of my chest. They dig into my shoulders.

As far as bras, they make dance bras that have clear straps.
