It gives as much support as a strapless bra can. I bought the nude size large. Super comfy, not tight, form-fitting. Also, the fabric used is soft and not too thick not too thin. I am a 34B". Feeling a bit daring? Get inspired by the stylists at Free People and sport this bandeau as a top, paired with high-waisted pants and a menswear-inspired blazer.
Women wanting their bandeau bra to come in an array of color choices, meet your match. A wide bottom band of stretch lace lends light support. I love it so much I'm buying it in another color. The bandeau gives me enough support to wear alone and stays in place nicely. Side boning offers a little extra support. The lace goes well with anything. Those seeking the look of a bandeau bralette but need underwire for support, this bra is a great bet.
It stays up and is fully supportive. I highly highly recommend this bra for women needing more support. Stretchy lace and lightweight boning offer the perfect amount of support for smaller figures. It is such a pretty color! It has enough support for my C-cup chest. The lace is very nice quality. Being the comfortable, wear-with-anything bandeau at an affordable price point. It is so soft and did not move at all. I just tried it on and I am in love!
In modern sports and swimwear, a bandeau is a strapless garment worn around a woman's breasts. It may be fastened in the front or back or be sufficiently elastic so as not to need a fastener at all. A bandeau may come with a detachable halter strap, for extra support. A strapless bandeau, or tube top , was also worn as casual wear and sports wear starting in the s, and is sometimes worn as part of a sportswear ensemble.
Actress Halle Berry wore a bandeau with matching pants to the MTV Video Music Award , fueling the trend of wearing a bandeau top as an out-of-home dress. Wearing a bandeau to support a woman's breasts may date back to ancient Greece ,  where they were called apodesmos Greek: It consisted of a band of wool or linen that was wrapped across the breasts and tied or pinned at the back.
As a silhouette the bandeau was also worn in Roman times. The mosaic features ten maidens who have been anachronistically dubbed the " Bikini Girls ".
In Pompeii , depictions of Venus wearing a bikini were discovered in the Casa della Venere,    in the tablinum of the House of Julia Felix ,  and in an atrium garden of Via Dell'Abbondanza.
In the s the term was applied to a simply shaped brassiere , usually of a soft fabric and delicate trimmings providing little support or shaping. The design was patented in in the United States by Edgar Guggenheim and resembled the contours and wrapping effects of the scultetus binder used in hospitals. When the "boyish" silhouette went out of fashion, the word "brassiere" or later "bra" became the term for more shapely support garments.
The term bandeau also refers to the thin headband traditionally worn—until recently—underneath and supporting the veil by the nuns of many Catholic religious institutes. Together with the wimple which covers the cheeks and neck and the white coif to which it would be attached, it was the common headdress of a respectable woman in Medieval and Renaissance Europe.
