What is a Cotton Bra?
Is comfort the most important criteria when you select a bra? Do you love the feel of a soft fabric against your skin? Do you have sensitive breasts, and want a bra that won't feel tight or pinch against your skin? Have allergies or prefer natural materials? A cotton bra is great for women who value comfort, or women who simply love the feel of cotton.
Cotton bras are exactly what they sound like - bras made with cotton. Some bras feature cotton only in the cups, while other bras are cotton all over. Many of today's modern cotton bras are actually blends, containing some cotton but also other materials to help provide more structure and stretch resistance.
If you're shopping for cotton bras, make sure you understand the composition and blend of materials and that it's suitable for the application you intend. Full cotton may be softer, but it's also more likely to stretch or retain moisture than cotton blends, which makes it unsuitable for some types of wear.
