Bra Styles Revealed: Cut, Construction, Purpose and Body Types

Bra Cut/Style
Looking for a bra with a certain cut? Want a bra with a specific level of coverage to wear under your favorite shirt or hot new dress? These are different bra cuts and styles, named by the way the cups are cut and worn.

Bra Construction
These types of bras are defined by certain details of their construction. For example, cotton bras are bras whose cups are made with cotton fabric, and soft cup bras are wire-free designs. Bras in this category may also have cuts or styles in the bra style section - but start here if you're looking for a bra with specific design features or a certain type of construction.

Bras by Purpose
Some bras are made to address a specific need, and usually include features, cuts and design details to make them better suited to that need. Start here if you're looking for a bra with a specific purpose in mind, like a sports bra, a sleep bra or a nursing bra.

Bras for Body Types
These are bras designed for certain body types, or for women whose bodies have specific needs - for example, maternity bras for women whose breasts are changing throughout pregnancy, or plus size bras for full-figured women. Start here if you're looking for a bra for a certain body type.
