One of the most important pieces of advice that I give to friends and clients alike, is to choose the right brand of bra.
In the lingerie world every intimate apparel company strives to identify with and cater to a different niche; brassiere manufacturers are no different.
For example, sleek and sexy Calvin Klein bras cater to smaller bra sizes and Bali bras cater to practical and pretty average bra sizes.
For my friends and family who wear a c cup bra or greater I always suggest Olga lingerie. Olga is a favorite North American intimate apparel manufacturer who specializes in fuller coverage brassieres.
They have a very good variety of different types of bras that are pretty and feminine (that means they're most definitely NOT ugly supportive granny bras), and supportive with a comfy fit.
Here you'll find my recommendations on which bra styles your lingerie drawer should have. So, without further ado, let's take a quick look my 3 picks...
Satin Bra - 35002 - Sizes 36C through 42DD. Colors - white, nude (Olga calls it butterscotch), and basic black.
A silky smooth underwire bra with seamless satin bra cups that have a unique feature - comfort padding along the bottom part of the cups. Wider sides offer you a better fit.
This is a great bra for practical yet feminine everyday wear.
Contour Bra - 35183 - Sizes 36C through 42D. Colors - white, basic black and seasonal colors.
Designed for full coverage with a special wider edge along the top of the bustline to prevent breast tissue from popping out.
Smooth and completely seamless cups have a lightly padded contour lining that ensures your modesty. A good choice under your knitwear, blouses and shirts.
Minimizer Bra - 35519 - Sizes 36C through 42DD. Colors - Black, ivory, white and nude / butterscotch.
This classic Olga bra is a favorite because it's lightweight and fits well.
Seamless cups have a sophisticated leaf motif and are fully lined with soft and stretchy microfiber that won't chafe.
A great choice under your everyday shirts, blouses and sweaters, though not sheer fabrics.
