Bra Shopping Secrets
The thought of bra shopping strikes fear into the hearts of many women.
The most flattering womens bras really depend on a woman's breast size and body type, as well as the type of clothes you'll be wearing.
Brassieres come in an amazing variety of styles,
colors, and shapes. Here are a just few of the popular brassiere styles you'll see when bra shopping...
Adhesive Bras - these unique specialty bras are a fairly recent intimate apparel invention that make it easy for ladies to wear very revealing tops, dresses and clothing with a fair bit of brassiere support.
Backless Bra - These popular bra styles offer lift and support to the breasts while providing a virtually invisible look for today's revealing dresses and tops that have low, plunging backs.
Balconette Bras - these womens bras range from sexy demi bras to full figured bras. They offer half or demi scalloped bra cups for an exotic look to the bustline. When bra shopping for a balconette bra opt for lace or mesh in your favorite color for sheer lingerie appeal.
Bandeau Bra - a lightweight and stretchy strapless knit brassiere. Bandeau bras have a wide bra band. While these specialty bras are designed for strapless dresses and tops, and offer a smooth bra fit, they do not provide a great deal of support.
Bra Camisole - The bra camisole, also known as a camisole bra or camisole with bra is a popular cami style, combining design and comfort. The camisole bra is an all-in-one lingerie undergarment with a clever design that combines the practicality of a brassiere with the style of a camisole.
Convertible Bras - the convertible bra is an amazingly versatile bra style that every woman should have in her lingerie drawer. These specialty bras have detachable bra straps that can be reconfigured or removed, offering the option of several bra styles in one.
Front Closure Bras - These sexy bras lack the classic hook-and-eye closure system on the back of the brassiere band. Instead, front close bras use an easy to reach plastic or metal closure that opens and closes in the front of the bra between the bra cups. A great style for preteens and people with arthritis!
Full Figure Bras Are - a buxom woman’s lingerie drawer must have for feeling fabulous and looking great. Full bras tend to have supportive bra cups that offer fuller coverage. Full figure bras cover the breasts completely and are available in both wired and wireless bras.
Long Line Bras - also known as bustier tops, these long brassieres are popular descendents of sexy corsets and are well liked for their silhouette shaping abilities. When wearing close fitting knits and clothing opt for smooth styles like the satin bustier for a polished look.
Minimizer bras - these brassieres are a favorite of buxom women who are larger busted. Specially designed to minimize the bustline, the minimizer bra redistributes the weight and shape of the breast while giving the illusion of a smaller bustline.
Plus Size Strapless Bras - thanks to great design and ingenuity strapless bras are an easy option for zaftig women in need of extra strapless support for those gorgeous strapless tops and dresses. When bra shopping opt for nude or neutral colors under white and sheer fabrics for a virtually invisible look.
See Through Bras - these sheer bras display the breasts in peekaboo sheer lingerie fabrics such as lace, mesh and microfiber. They create a provocative and sexy exotic lingerie look when matched with sheer panties and/or a matching sheer nightgown.
Strapless Bras - are a must-have for every well dressed woman's lingerie drawer. Being able to determine bra size for a strapless bra is now better than ever thanks to a wide range that includes petite bras in AA to plus size bras in a G cup. Bra shopping for strapless bras has never been easier!
