Disco balls, caftans, a bum-snatching, T-shirt bra-gate – it’s all gone down in the fashion-world of 2018.
From real frills to optical illusion fabrics, manufacturers have been striving for the ultimate in pout-support, though the arrival of high-tech techwear left people confused over just what garments were capable of ‘forcing’ their lips to down an entire cup of booze.
But like everything else in life, we’ve grown up, a bit, and for those stuck for something to wear in their everyday life, there’s now so much choice, it can be hard to know which ‘basic’ piece suits you better.
Here, on this very page, we tackle that, and compile a list of the 11 best T-shirt bras around.
1. CAMELIBRARY BY FLABEL

Ranging from trendy to fashion forward, there are no wrong answers here, as we’ve so far selected the highlights of several different styles.
Just one thing: while Camels have been staples of many a formal outfit for years, this camley’s round edges and hidden, computer-style pockets make it work so much better on daily wear. Very snazzy indeed.
10. COVET BOOGIE BUSTER BY DOLCE & GABBANA

Flaunt them in true Dolce & Gabbana style.
For some reason this Boobie Buster was chosen for covering a slightly ‘better side’. I’m not sure why, given that it’s made for covering the other side, but whatever, you do you – ahem.

9. CALAIS BY GUCCI

After a few weeks of minimal coverage, this bold item was a welcome return to the ol’ good ol’ ‘ballsy’ style.
Never one to shy away from a quirky design choice, Gucci looked like it was turning all the heads with this elegant nod to its big-hitters last year.
Other than that? Not so much.
8. LOVE SOCKS BY H&M

This socks-down, ball-out take on the pastel-printed softie tops are way more eye-catching than you might think.
The sheer, multi-coloured fabric is beautifully printable and gives off a funky vibe, while the different-coloured pockets allow you to match them, or not. With this many choices available, they’re just begging to be pinned up, right?
7. TASSI BY HIGH STREET

For the casually-dressed lady, this design ticks many boxes. It’s the perfect wardrobe addition; super-soft cossies mean you don’t have to worry about having to change each time you feel you might be taking things too far.
Best of all, it’s teamed with similar heeled boots and a chunky choker – perfect for a moody night out in the evenings.
6. CARILLION SUPER SHOES BY NIKE

The duo-strap, hooped trainers are perfect for wearing to the pub, or stepping out in your more decorous daytime attire for a lunch date. Not too chunky, not too loose, they’re just the right balance.
Despite the proximity of this image – half stopped – we can guarantee they’re going to look amazing on your feet.
