How to Choose the Right Bra
For an active day: choose a full-coverage bra with wide, supportive straps. A bra with good coverage or reinforcement across the back can help prevent riding up when you're active. Something like the Enell Sports Bra is an excellent choice, because of its effective supportive features and moisture-wicking material that help the bra stay in place even when you sweat.
For low-cut clothing: A demi-cup bra with wide-set straps is an excellent choice if you're wearing a shirt or dress with a low-cut neckline. The fabric of a demi-cut or decollete bra only covers half or two-thirds of your breast, so the fabric of your bra won't show if you're wearing a low-cut neckline. One example of a popular demi bra is the Felina Harlow demi.
For under t-shirts: If you want a flattering look under cotton t-shirts or clingy material, consider a seamless bra. Seamless bras are smooth and give your breasts a natural curved shape. The Fantasie of England seamless t-shirt cut bra is a great example of the type of seamless bra you'd want to wear under cotton t-shirts.
For strapless clothing: When you're wearing a strapless dress or top, you'll want a convertible or strapless bra. Most convertible bras have an option to completely remove the straps, and a strapless bra is designed to be worn without straps. The Femi Basic Convertible Underwire Plunge Bra is one of the many convertible style options, which you can wear with straps in various configurations or remove them completely for strapless tops.
Bra Size vs. Bra Fit
We've done a lot of articles here about the difference between bra size and bra fit - check out our "Fitting and Sizing" category for more information. The short of it is that bra size and bra fit are two entirely different things.
Cup size, band size and volume are huge factors when it comes to finding the right bra fit. Technically, a 38D and a 40C are sister sizes - they'll both technically fit around your body if you're in this size range. But the proportions are different in these two bra sizes, in spite of the fact that they're roughly equivalent. A 38D bra size has a bigger cup, while the 40C has a bigger band. The fact that these are sister sizes makes them roughly the same size, but the fit is very different.
The key to finding the right bra is finding a bra that fits your body properly - not a bra that complies with some arbitrary number and letter combination. Four out of every five women wears the wrong bra size, and the most common error is women wearing a band size that's too large and a cup size that's too small.
Maternity Bras are Designed for Your Changing Body
Maternity bras are some of the most important undergarments you'll ever buy. The right maternity bra offers a broad range of benefits that most women don't even realize. Some women choose not to buy maternity bras, and instead stick with their regular bras as long as possible, and then buy normal bras in larger cup sizes instead of shopping for maternity bras. This is a really bad idea, and here's why:
Unlike traditional bras, maternity bras are designed for your changing body. Maternity bras are specially tailored to women whose breasts are growing due to the hormones of pregnancy. As you progress through your pregnancy, your mammary glands will begin to swell and your breasts will eventually become heavy with milk.
Every pregnancy is different, but your breast size could change by as much as an entire cup size - or more - in as little as a week. Traditional bras aren't designed to accommodate those changes, but maternity bras are specially made for a body with swelling breasts and the demands of pregnancy. Check out our maternity bras fit guide for information about finding the right maternity bra for your body.
