Every woman stresses on buying the right outfit for the right occasion that can suit her personality and the occasion likewise. But ladies, most of the time you forget that it’s equally important to feel good from the inside. No, we are not talking about meditation here, we’re talking about wearing the right bra. There are a few bras that every woman needs to have in her wardrobe because every killer outfit starts with a killer bra. With T-shirts, tank tops and various necklines on top/dresses, there are certain must-have bras for every woman. So, here is a list of five types of bras that you need to have. And chances are, you don’t have them all.
#1 T-Shirt Bra
A well fitted T-shirt bra is a must have for all of you who swear by T-shirts and wear them on a regular basis. These bras have smooth, contoured cups made of very thin foam material making it perfect to wear under a T-shirt or any other thin fabric. You may choose different options when it comes to colour, but it’s best to go for skin tone to get that invisible look. It does not let you worry about lumps, bumps and nip slips. It’s perfect for everyday wear and works great for all shapes and sizes.
#2 Push-Up Bra
Push-up bra is typically the underwire bra that is designed with some additional padding at the bottom portion of the cup to lift the breast. It gives an illusion of a fuller bust and creates cleavage where none or very little existed. Because, let’s face it…. a perfect cleavage is elusive and subjective and not every woman is blessed to have it. But that hasn’t stopped women from trying to ace it and succeeding with the help of a great push-up bra. For those of you who have smaller breasts, you definitely need to invest in these bras.
#3 Strapless Bra
Girl, if you are someone who loves wearing off-shoulder, strapless or even halter tops then strapless bra is essential for you. Because a strapless bra is good for scooped, boat neck or square necklines. It is also known as ‘Bandeau’ and are pretty much like a band of fabric. This trusty bra comes with wide sides and sewn-in silicone stitching along the edges to keep it in place. With the perfect grip, it keeps hugging you. You don’t want a bra that keeps sliding down, do you? Strapless bras are best for women with smaller busts (or who dislikes wearing traditional bras). Because for women with heavy busts, wearing these pieces can be a little tricky as they don’t offer much support.
Bralette is a wireless bra with a bit more shape than a strapless bra or a bandeau. Typically unpadded, seamless and made of breathable fabric like cotton or spandex, this is one of those everyday bras you always get back to. The basic job they do is to provide good support and comfort to your bubblies. Generally they work best with smaller cup sizes and are an ideal choice for those lazy weekend days when you want to spend your time relaxing in your pyjamas.
#5 Sports Bra
If you’re someone who swears by their workout and fitness routine, you need a good sports bra (or more). And if you are not a sports person at all, then also you need to own a supportive sports bra to help prevent breast tissue damage. Because, even light walking can stretch and break down the ligaments that support your breasts that can further lead to sagging. Be it yoga, walking, running or any other activity, investing in a good sports bra is a must. The racer-back is really popular in activewear bras. The V-shaped straps increase support, reduce bounce during physical activity and provide a bit more lift than a traditional strap placement. Make sure to check on the intensity of your activity, as that helps in finding the right sports bra you can opt for.
