That is, until I actually started checking out cooler bras. I began following Instagram accounts like Creepy Yeha and Chromat and realized that lingerie isn’t just about cheap, frilly material that you can cop at Victoria Secret and call it a day. Lingerie can be frilly, yes, but it can also be bold, unique, fun, ludicrous, and absolutely artistic.
Listen, if you’re skeptical, check out these 11 cool af bras below and try to tell me you didn’t find at least one bra that you’d feel like an effing rock star wearing.
Raya Bondage Bra
A lot of bondage style bras, frankly, do the most. Straps everywhere, crisscrossing all over to the point of looking messy. Plus, the straps are so thin that they look like they'll snap in a second. That's why this bondage bra is far superior to most. It's minimalist yet bold, and the angles of the peak-a-boo cups give off a futuristic vibe.
The Sui Bra
This bondage inspired bra is, like, way too badass not to include in this roundup. It's leather, handmade, and can be customized to literally any size, no matter how small or big you are. Also, it looks straight up badass and would look really cool paired with something mesh. Unfortunately, it's $250, so unless you are made of money, you're going to have to admire it from afar or save up some serious guac.
These strappy bras are so cool, but so many of them only come in black. That's why this pink bra is such a breath of fresh air. The contrast between the pastel and hot pink is really cute, and it would look great underneath those tops with big arm holes that show your bra.
Diode Patent Cage Bra
Uh, as somebody with big boobs, the idea of fitting my tits into this bra is pretty humorous. Still it looks pretty rad and oddly delicate despite the sharp points and angles.
Champagne '30s Bra
If you're super into the vintage pinup aesthetic, you'll think this bra is the tits (haha). The champagne color is super classy and the black accents really pull it all together. Throw some curls into your hair and flaunt in the mirror!
Half Neck Half Cup Plunge Bra
So many bras for larger cup sizes are dull and matronly. Uh, not this one! Let's be real: It's hot AF and if you're a curvy girl who wants to feel a little glamorous, this would be a nice addition to a lingerie collection.
This is another pricy bra that is just too cool looking not to include in this post. IT'S A PENTAGRAM BRA! Like, this bra is straight up witchy af and it's brilliant. It would look really cool underneath a see through top.
Rainbow De Lite Sequin Bra
How often do you see a sequin bra, right? I love that these sequins are big and bold instead of tiny and delicate. This could honestly make for a great top to wear in the summer.
Ravish Me Bra
This bra might not look very practical since it doesn't give your boobs much support...but it's still really damn cool looking. While the design is very edgy, the bow and satin provide a softer side. It's dreamy, yet badass.
What's cool about this bustier is that it can double as a bra or a top, honestly. Just pair it with a pair of high waist jeans, shorts, or a skirt and you're good to go. Throw on a jacket and you've got a more modest twist on a revealing item.
The Broomstick Bra This longline bra is cool because it leaves a lot to the imagination, but still provides a see through panel for a little bit of edge. Plus, it looks super soft and comfy, which is a huge plus.
