Like many women, you probably like looking your best and are actively working to develop a good-looking, versatile wardrobe. While it is important to stock your closet and drawers with a selection of well fitting tops, jeans, skirts and dresses, don’t overlook the importance of quality lingerie.
Of course, one of the most important things you can do is ensure that your bras fit well. Many women feel uncomfortable demanding the same type of fit from a bra that they would expect from other garments such as slacks or a blouse. Don’t fall into this trap, instead, insist on buying bras that fit you well, keep you comfortable and offer adequate support.
One tip that can help in determining whether a bras the right size is to try the bra on and close it using the loosest clasp on the band.If it fits, and it is comfortable, buy it. The elastic in bras stretches over time. If you purchase a bra that fits well on its loosest clasp, you can simply move to the tighter clasps over the life of the bra. This not only keeps you comfortable but saves you money, as you won’t need to purchase a new bra once the elastic stretches.
Types of Bras
There are, of course, many different kinds of bras and it is up to you to decide which type or types you need to own. Many women, particularly large-busted women, rely on bras that have underwires for additional support and for keeping the bra’s shape.
However, some women find such bras to be uncomfortable or prefer to avoid underwires because they are concerned about setting off metal detectors at airports or in buildings. These ladies may prefer supportive bras that do not have an underwire.
Other types of bras include sports bras, which provide additional support and hold breasts close to the chest. This prevents excessive movement during strenuous exercise.
Developing a Bra Wardrobe
Because of the different kinds of bras available, and the changing lifestyles of many women, developing a bra wardrobe is often a good idea. This means selecting several different types of bras that can be worn with a variety of outfits. Mamia bras, as sold by companies like Unihosery, is an example of a range that encompasses a wide range of styles and colors to suit the needs of most women.
