Whether you're giving the pantsuit-and-bra trend a whirl, looking for something to show off under a sheer top, or celebrating Valentine's Day with your significant other, this bra is typically purchased with a specific outfit or special occasion in mind.
The balconette's reputation as an ultra-flattering piece dates back to the '50s when iconic movie star and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe first popularized the style.
