Bras

Finding the right fit and fashion

The right brassiere can enhance your figure for a big date or provide the ultimate in comfort when you’re active. But no matter what the occasion for wear, fit in a bra is vital.

Fit

Make sure your back strap doesn’t ride up your back or cause bulging at the top or sides of the cups. Underwire should lie flat on the ribcage without digging into or riding up the breasts. Not only does an ill-fitted bra fail to flatter your figure, it can also cause physical discomfort ranging from headaches to life-long back problems.

Function

They type of bra you buy should always be dictated by your activity. For example, sports bras give crucial support and comfort during intense exercise that you can’t get from an ordinary bra.

For date night, an enticing silhouette takes top priority. That means push-up or padded bras, sheer bras or any type of sexy bras or matching bras and panties, which can boost your confidence to fight off first-date jitters. For voluptuous figures that require more support than skimpy garments can provide, plus size bras are sturdy without sacrificing the sex appeal.

Style

Although fit and function are the most important factors to consider when shopping for a bra, it's also a good idea to think about how the bra will look. This doesn't mean that you need to wear premium brands like La Perla, Victoria’s Secret or Prima Donna bras every day, but it can be nice to have one or two luxury bras in your wardrobe.

Bras For Every Age

Like shoes and boyfriends, bras can be outgrown and need to be changed as a woman’s body develops. Fortunately, specialty bras can be found for almost any stage in a female’s life. From no bra to your first teen bra, bra top or training bra when you’re a growing girl, and from there onto sexy lingerie and maybe even maternity bras, it’s good to know that if you’re going to wear a bra every day, at least you can find one that fits for every stage of your life!
