Team Insider: Bra Recommendations for Summer Tank Styles

As wardrobe stylists, we know how tough it can be sourcing the BEST bra, especially for our fuller-figured gals. When it comes to quality fit, fabric, and functionality we have two intimate apparel brands in our back pocket we always recommend: ThirdLove and Soma. This week it’s a two-parter; we’re breaking down tank styles and the choice corresponding bras to best complement them. We got you ladies!


This halter style works well for a lady with a larger bust, or broader shoulders. The v-neck always moves the eye more vertical, versus horizontal, and it also acts as a minimizer. All good points in our book!
Soma Intimates Bra: 
This full-figure strapless bra has the straps included so that you can wear it several ways. The one that works perfect for this halter, is only choosing one strap, and wrapping around the neck! So good!
ThirdLove Bra: 
This 24/7 Seamless Wireless Bra is perfect to make into a halter style. It’s convertible straps allow it to match your neckline, but the coverage and the full cups work well on a full bust. Versatility is the name of the game here.


The racerback tank takes on the sporty, athleisure vibe we are loving these days. This style tends to cut in along either side of the bust, so a normal bra just won’t do. Since the racerback has become a beloved tank style this Summer, we want to make sure we share the best tank options out there that can flatter an already fuller bust, and showcase the shoulders and décolleté.

Soma Bra: 
This full coverage t-shirt bra provides a seamless silhouette under a tee or tank. The memory foam cups conform to the body, creating a natural custom fit with less gaping. This is the perfect bra for the racerback tank with its matching silhouette.

ThirdLove Bra: 
The keyhole effect on this bra not only looks chic, but also serves a logistical purpose for the racerback tank. The memory foam cups create comfort and great fit, but the lace overlay offers a fashionable aesthetic. It’s available in every cup and a band size for accessibility for all shapes and silhouettes!


When it comes to a tank, we like selecting tank options with strap sustenance. Something that provides support and comfort regardless of bust size. This style works for our gal with a smaller bust to a larger bust. What makes this option even more likeable is the beautiful scoop necklace, which opens up the neckline and pulls the eye down.

Soma Bra: 

The Vanishing 360 Perfect Coverage Bra is a team favorite and works beautifully for the tank style. It provides full coverage for the bust, which gives a nice clean line across the front. Additionally, this bra has ultra thin padding and is known for its comfortability. You get the support you need for this top style while remaining comfortable.

ThirdLove Bra : 

The 24/7 Perfect Coverage Bra from ThirdLove is very similar to the bra style above. However, this is a stronger option for the gal who needs a bit more support. The straps are thicker and lined with memory foam eliminating the possibility of straps digging in and creating wear discomfort. Also, this bra is made to form to the bust and enhance your shape and silhouette.
