Different types of bras:

  • Typical Bra: Typically made of cotton, but can be velvet, silk, lace and more this bra doesn’t have any padding in it.
  • Push up bra: Women’s push-up bras, also known as the lift-up bras, do exactly as their name suggests – they gently push your breasts upwards and move them close together to give you sexy cleavage. They are padded on the under-side of the cups with either silicone gel or foam to lift up the breast tissue, and come in 3 different levels of push up – gentle, moderate and explosive!
  • Padded Bras: This is one style every woman should own! The padded cups of the bra prevent nipple show under T-shirts and fitted outfits.
  • Convertible Bra: One-strap, two-straps, strapless or cross-back – the convertible bra has a wealth of styles to pick from and is hence also known as the multi-way bra. It comes with detachable straps that can be re-arranged in multiple ways by hooking them onto different slots at the front or the back. Now you can have one bra for a wide variety of outfits!
  • Strapless Bra: Yes, a women’s strapless bra, as the name suggests, is a bra without straps; and no, it won’t fall off. Perfect for shoulder-baring outfits, the two cups of the strapless bra are held in place by a strong, wired under band. Since all the support comes from this band, it is important to wear the right fit – if it’s too tight, you’ll be uncomfortable and if it’s loose it’ll keep slipping off!

  • Brallete: A strappy bralette is a no-fuss bra! Usually unlined, unpadded and wire-free, bralettes can be styled as both underwear and outerwear. Though essentially considered to be a bra, they are designed with minimal construction and can be slipped on easily.
  • Sports bras: Sturdier than everyday bras, women’s sports bras are designed to provide support to the breasts during workouts. Engineered to prevent bounce and hold the bust firm during strenuous movement, they are a must-have for every woman during exercising. There are many types of sports bras, including the padded sports bras, compression or encapsulation sports bras, pull-over or back-clasp sports bras, etc.

How to size a bra/the way it fits:

  1. Step one is to measure your band: Pull the tape measure around your chest, just below your underarms. You want the tape measure to be firm against your body, but not squeezing you. This measurement is your band size. If you get an odd number, round up.

2. Step two is to measure your bust. Now measure loosely around the fullest part of your bustline.

3. The third and final step is figuring out your cup size. Your band measurement subtracted from your bust measurement will give you your cup size. Just find the right number on this bra size chart.

1″= A5″= DD 9″= I
2″= B6″= DDD & F10″= J
3″= C7″= G11″= K
4″= D8″= H 

Bra Facts:

  • Bras typically only last between 6-9 months long. 
  • You bra should be washed at least once a month.
  • If you don’t like bras, don’t wear one. Society says most girls should wear a bra, but the truth is there are no true benefits to them other than giving them the “perky shape.”
  • Make sure you are wearing the right sized bra, depending on the size it can cause actual damage to your body, and more specifically your spine.
