Bra Styles Revealed: What, When and Who

Finding the right bra can be such a hassle, but it doesn't have to be! When you're shopping for a bra, you need to think about your body, the clothes you want to wear and how you want to look. All these things vary from woman to woman, and even from workday to hot date night - so it all comes down to finding the right style of bra for you at that particular moment.

Ask yourself whether you're looking for a cleavage bra that gives you a sexy neckline under a low-cut top, or a full-coverage bra to provide all day support under your professional work wardrobe - or something else entirely! Not sure what you need? that's where we come in!

What are the Different Bra Styles? What are the Most Common Types of Bras?

To make your bra shopping as easy as possible, we've put together a guide that explains all the most common bra styles. You can shop for types of bras based on your body, the clothes you want to wear, whether you've got narrow shoulders or broad shoulders and whether your breasts are firm or ample or anything in between!

Browse our bra guide to find the best bra style for you, and treat yourself to a hot new bra you'll love that will actually look great on you!
