Brabomination TIFF Edition
Happy TIFF! We’ve been watching the orange carpets and have some fun celebrity pics to show you, some good, some total brabominations, and of course, we’ll offer our solutions.
First, meet Yao Xingtong, Chinese actress at TIFF to support Jackie Chan at the premiere of “In Conversation With….Jackie Chan”.
Yao wore a beautiful sheer white dress with beige pasties underneath, which it seems she thought would be invisible on the red carpet. Unfortunately, those flash bulbs are bright, and not only were the pasties revealed, but they weren’t quite doing their job. According to Huffington Post, she noticed half way down the carpet and began to cover up with a stuffed toy.
Our solution? Well there are a few possibilities. 1. Wear nothing at all. Yeah, probably not the solution you’d expect from a bra store but we do think if you choose to wear something this sheer and white that you might as well just go for it. If that isn’t your speed… 2. Wear sparkly pasties like the kind we carry from Bristols6. This way, if they show, it will seem intentional. 3. Wear a beautiful white lacy bra, like the ones we show in this post. It would work great with this beautiful white lace dress. 4. Wear a opaque beige tshirt bra, which would appear almost invisible under this dress.
Here’s a great option we carry, by Simone Perele, called Caressence:
Here’s a TIFF carpet win, hometown star Rachel McAdams:
Rachel was a knockout in this green number. She is probably wearing a beige strapless bra, as would be the conventional choice for a one-shoulder dress of this design. A slightly more unconventional, though totally exciting choice would be the new Chantelle Rive Gauche in delicious forest green:
The straps are delicate on this style and just a hint of one poking out from this dress would be intriguing. It’s seamless and invisible under tshirts, so it makes a great every day bra as well. We’ve just received sizes A-B 32-34 and C-F 30-34 in this style, which we have loved in past seasons in the basic colours.
Another brabombination came courtesy of Emma Watson, whose pasties slipped out from under her delicate dress:
Emma’s stylist should have used Stylin’ Tape, which would have held the dress in place to ensure it did not slip to one side and reveal the pastie. Or, as we mentioned above, Emma could have worn a sparkly or lacy pastie, that way if it showed, it wouldn’t have seemed so unintentional. (But honestly, that doesn’t seem like Emma’s style). Pick up some Stylin’ tape next time you’re in the store. It is double-sided adhesive that magically sticks to your skin when you want it to, and peels off later with no irritation! It’s truly magical, and can be used for all sorts of things, including fixing hems, holding a blouse together when the buttons are tugging, and of course, on orange carpets, to ensure your dress hangs in place…just so.
Here’s Abbie Cornish looking gorgeous in this black gown with a down-to-there plunge neckline:
We’ve got lots of options for a dress like this but two basics are Jezebel‘s plunge strapless, that offers amazing cleavage!
Or, Empreinte‘s Thalia Very Plunge:
Lastly, patterns and prints were a hot trend at TIFF!

Patterns are hot in lingerie this season too! Check out this amazing new style we just received from Freya. Her official name is Ginny but we’re calling her Miz. Royal Doulton:
She’s got two gorgeous contrasting patterns, in lovely floral and polka dots. Her tiny bows are made with velvet. It is as if a funky antique shop has refashioned itself into the dream lingerie set…in the best way possible! Reminiscent of blue willow pattern this beautiful blue bra is so pretty you’ll hate putting on clothes over top of it.
We have limited sizes of this fun fashion style (F-FF 32-38) so hurry in to snap this one up!
As another year for TIFF comes to an end, we’re wondering if you spotted any stars, saw any great films, or had any brabombination challenges of your own? Keep in touch! Be sure to ask us on our Facebook page if you ever have bra questions. You can also ask us on Twitter, (though we’re a little wordy and sometimes bra questions are better answered in long form.) We also love to hear your brabomination suggestions, so be sure to pass those challenging pics along.
Hope to see you soon, xo sfys
