Girls need to develop a bra wardrobe. Having just one style or shape of bra that fits well is no more an option that having just one style of shoes or boots. Here are some general shapes and ‘styles’ that might help you to determine your needs.

  • Full Coverage

    For woman who prefer to have their full breast completely supported, we always recommend the ‘full coverage’ bras

  • T-Shirt

    T-shrit bras are not necessarily ‘padded’ although the fabric is thicker than a seamed bra.

  • Demi-Cup / Balconey

    The perfect style to wear under boat-neck tops and dresses.

  • Strapless

    An essential in the bra wardrobe for strapless dresses, for halter and one-shoulder tops.

  • Push-Up

    A bump of foam padding is added or built in to the bottom of this style to help lift the bust, creating a round fullness and to appear plumped.

  • Prosthetic

    Many women who do not wear a prostheses will choose a prosthetic bra due to its incredible comfort.

  • Bralette

    A term which refers to a petite bra. It has no wires and virtually no support.

  • Wireless

    Superior Comfort with only a light lift and support. Banded around the body to keep bra in place.

  • Sports

    Sports bra offer a full coverage & compression support to keep from bouncing while the body is in motion.

  • Seamless

    Complete breast coverage with the higher center gore for greater support.

  • Plunge

    This style has a very low center and is perfect for low neckline and helps create a cleavage.

  • Maternity

    Nursing bras can be smooth or seamed, wire or without. A clip at the top allows woman to unhook the fabric for easy access feedings.

Choosing the proper panties is just as important as getting the right fitting bra! You spend a lot of time in these little things, so make sure you get the right fit, the right fabric and when in doubt, make it easy, match, match match!!

    This brief offers good coverage of the derrière and generally has 3” of fabric at the hip for comfort and coverage.

  • high cut brief
