Perfect Bras: Bra Wardrobe Basics
We also recommend that, must you choose, you buy three high-quality bras rather than a lot of cheapies. Bras, though they seem deceivingly simple, are actually pieces of very sophisticated construction.
The more intricate and well-thought-out the design of the bra (and the best supporting bras are modern feats of engineering, let me tell you), the more the price may go up. You are well worth it.
Not only will your bra lift, separate, and support when it's doing its job correctly, it also imbues a sense of poise in its wearer and protects delicate ligaments in the breast - without putting undue pressure on your poor hard-working shoulders.
Once you've found your perfect bra size and fit, you can get started with one bra to wear, one to wash, and one in the drawer.
