I Didn't Think I Was a Sheer-Bra Person, But Then I Found These 15 Pretty Ones

I feel as though you’re on one of two bra teams: either you stick to one comfortable style and buy it on repeat or you have a lingerie drawer bursting with every colour, cut and design out there. I have the same classic T-shirt bra in black, white and beige, a backless bra and a strapless iteration. My sensible bra collection, however, is about to get a playful new addition thanks to all the sheer styles I’ve been spotting on Instagram. The delicate, see-through lace and mesh designs springing up everywhere on my feed are just too pretty to pass up. And want to know where to get them? Some of the best bra brands such as French lingerie specialist Simone Péreèle and London label Dora Larsen are providing multiple sheer choices.
