Best Camisole Bra Shopping Tips

Camisole Bra - One of the most versatile camisoles available today is the camisole. Also known as a bra camisole or a camisole with built in bra, this cleverly designed all in one piece cami combines a hidden inner brassiere with a camisole.

These camisoles are a great choice as they offer more support than a camisole worn by itself, though less support than traditional full bras.

This is important to keep in mind if you are heavier busted.

Camisole Bra

Camisole bras may not provide adequate support for playing tennis, jogging and other high impact activities.

A bra cami is superb for your close fitting clothing as it eliminates the need for layering a bra and camisole under your shirt, blouse, or sweater since the brassiere is already included.

How does it work?

The most popular camisole bra styles have a traditional scoop or V neck, with tank or spaghetti straps.

The attached inner brassiere is made of a soft stretchy fabric, usually a cotton and lycra blend, and is similar to a bandeau bra.

Camisole Bra Shopping Tips

Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind when shopping for bra camisoles...

  • Opt for softer intimate apparel fabrics with a touch of spandex for a better fit. A cotton, satin, silk or lace camisole will offer you a smoother look and finish for your tighter fitting outfits.

  • If you choose a cami style with spaghetti straps, make sure they are adjustable, so you can adjust them accordingly.

  • Bra Fit is important – Most camisoles today come in small, medium, large and xlarge, so it's important to make sure the inner bandeau bra fits comfortably.

Take the time to try on the camisoles you like and stretch about as you would during day.

If, you prefer online shopping, read the camisole and/or bra sizes and lingerie sizing charts and buyer reviews. Remember to review their return policy in case it doesn't fit, and always keep your receipt.
