Top 5 Types of Bras You Absolutely Need

Your lingerie wardrobe isn’t complete without these

The 5 essential bra styles

Chances are, your lingerie wardrobe may be incomplete without you even realizing it. While it’s common to prefer one bra over another, we all know the importance of having options, especially when it comes to lingerie.

Embrace spring cleaning this year and re-evaluate your bra drawer. Are you holding onto bras or bralettes that have seen better days? Underwire that is popping out? Strapless bras that won’t hold up? Time to say goodbye.

And now that you’ll have room to spare, time to create a minimalist wardrobe with just the bra essentials you truly need.

1. T-shirt bra

No wardrobe is complete without the classic T-shirt bra. More than likely, the first bra you ever owned was something along the lines of a T-shirt bra: soft, light padding, and easy-to-wear (especially under those cozy tees!). It’s definitely a must-have.

2. Strapless Bra

A strapless bra is a go-to in the summertime for all those halter tops, off-the-shoulder dresses and even one-shoulder styles. But it’s also necessary for winter (hello, strapless New Years Eve dress!). Make sure you find one that hugs your curves and includes supportive features like power mesh lining, silicone strips or a strong band underneath the bust.

It’s helpful to have a convertible option with removable (and adjustable) straps that work for a multitude of different looks. Because of its versatility, it’s the perfect black bra to travel with!

3. Bralette

Some days, you just want to be comfortable. Why fuss with wires when you can have support without them? A lace bralette is a perfect piece for all-day comfort. With no wires, no cups or sometimes even no hook-and-eye back closures, bralettes can be great for running errands, lounging around or even sleeping.

We even carry lace bralettes for Curvy, Extended and Maternity.

4. Nude Bra

A woman’s wardrobe isn’t complete without a bra that matches your skin tone. It’s the only piece you can wear underneath your clothing that promises to not show. A nude bra will be undetectable under both white and black clothing.
