A woman does not live by one bra alone. We don't do the same activities every day nor do we wear the same clothes every day. And we shouldn't wear the same bra every day either. Every woman needs a variety of bras in her wardrobe for everything from daily wear to special occasions. Compare what's in your bra drawer with our checklist.
Your everyday bra is usually your favorite bra; it's your "go to" bra. You feel good when you wear it and you like the way it makes you look in your clothes. It provides the support you need and it's comfortable for hours on end. It's your everyday bra for a reason. You'll probably want at least three everyday bras; one to wear, one to wash and one to rest between wearings. For the comfort and support you want in an everyday bra we recommend the Anita Top Comfort Bra MicroEnergen 5409 and the Chantelle Three Part Cup Bra 3651.
When you're wearing something sheer or a clingy fabric, you'll want a seamless T-shirt bra. This bra is invisible underneath thin fabrics. Advancements in fabric composition and construction techniques allow these bras to offer good support to women of all sizes. The smooth silhouette of a seamless bra makes you look well put together. We recommend Oprah's favorite T-shirt bra Le Mystere Dream Tisha T-Shirt Bra 9955.
Sports bras are not just for the gym and should be worn for any activity that involves a lot of movement. Their primary purpose is to minimize the movement of your breasts when you are active. Without proper support large breasts can move between 3 and 6 inches during exercise or other strenuous activity. This strain on your breast tissue is very uncomfortable.
The best sports bras are made with moisture wicking material to keep you dry even when you sweat. Two great sports bra for large breasted woman are the Le Mystere Energie Sport Bra 320 and the Enell Sports Bra (currently available in Hope Pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness).
Evening wear and special occasion outfits require special bras designed to provide support and be invisible under your special clothes. These include:
Balcony bras have low cut cups and wide set shoulder straps and work especially well with scoop and square necklines.
Convertible bras have detachable straps that can be adjusted in multiple styles from halter to racerback to very low back straps.
Plunge bras have a very low cut gore (the portion of the bra between the cups) and are made to be worn with deep, plunging V-necklines.
Strapless bras for strapless dresses or tops with spaghetti straps.
At Big Girls Bras we can help you make sure that every bra in your bra drawer is comfortable, provides the support you need and makes you look great in your clothes. What more could a girl want?
