Lingerie Must Haves For A Guaranteed Fun Filled Holi

Smooth cup t-shirt bras – I recommend wearing a smooth cup t-shirt bra this Holi, especially  if you are planning on wearing a t-shirt or kurta. The bra will offer full coverage, reduced bounce and will also ensure that you do not have to constantly worry, if the cups or straps can be seen after you have been drenched in a spray of colour. Look for broader strap bras that are non-metallic and ensure easy movement. You can also opt for a white or black sports bra if that works better for you.


Nipple Concealers or Petals – No woman wants to be caught with perky nipples in the middle of water cannon fights. Ensure that you use concealers / stickers / silicon petals for complete peace of mind. You can either use nipple stickers or preferably, silicone petals that offer both, cover and reusability.

Dark coloured underwear – Avoid wearing bright coloured underwear on Holi and stick to dark colors. You don’t want to be caught with your coloured undies showing through separately, after you are all black and blue with colour!

Camisoles – If you are a modest girl, and all this talk about bras seems to be excessive, you can use camisoles that can be worn under any garment. Even for those who will be wearing bras, a cami can be worn over a bra to offer better coverage even when your outerwear is wet.
