Shout out to B.O.R.N to Style for giving me the idea for this post. In episode 1, we saw the team shop with Alison for bras which reminded me that all women should have several types of bras that not only fit correctly but are for appropriate for different reasons. So without further ado, I present to you the BRASSIERTIONARY:
Did I just coin a new term?
1. Adhesive Bra (stick on bra)- Usually made of silicone, polyurethane, or similar material, they are attached to the underside of the breasts using medical-grade adhesive. Suitable for backless and strapless outerwear where a strapless bra is not possible or preferred, or as an alternative to going completely braless.
2. Athletic/Sports Bra- A bra that provides additional support to female breasts during physical exercise.
3. Demi-cup– A partial-cup bra style that covers from half to three-quarters of the breast and creates cleavage and uplift.
4. Full-cup- Designed to offer maximum support and coverage for the entire breast. Great for women with large boobs 🙂
5. T-shirt bra- Designed without raised seams, hooks, or other construction that can be seen under an outer garment. A contoured style that fits the breasts smoothly under tightly fitting T-shirts, sweaters, light-weight knitted fabric, or clingy tops with minimal visibility.
Honorable Mentions (Bras you really don’t need but if you’re a baller, buy them)
6. Push-up bra- A fashion bra that creates the appearance of increased cleavage.
7. Convertible- The bra straps can be detached and rearranged in different ways depending on the outer garment. Alternative strap arrangements include traditional over-the-shoulder, criss-cross, halter, strapless and one-shoulder.
For the ladies who are broke like me, you don’t need to buy these all at once. While I do get re-measured and buy bras once a year (or so), you can buy yours once at a time. Also, consider cheaper lingerie stores…
May the lift be with you…get it? LOL!
