This is a question that we get asked many times and in my opinion you need a minimum of 5. Yes, I said FIVE! Every woman should have basics 1 nude/white, 1 black, 1 pretty, 1 sport, 1 for pure comfort and here is why.
If you look at your wardrobe you will probably see a “sea of black”…we are female after all and black is slimming, goes with everything and is easy to wear anytime anywhere. What you should never do is wear a light coloured bra under your black clothing, I know we have all done it at some point but how many of you have ruined your light coloured bra with a black shirt ie. Black die under the arms on your bra, black fabric pills on the cup; we’ve seen it all ladies! You NEED a black bra.
Next a nude or white bra. This is personal preference for many women but the most practical is nude as it disappears under white, where as white will show up under white. The alternative to the nude bra is a true red, looks sexy and disappears under white…truly, give it a try. The basics are where you spend your money, you wear these every day and it should make you look and feel great when you put your clothes on!
Next on the list, is pretty but I am going to talk about sports bras first. Now if you never crack a sweat or only do leisure walks at the mall for exercise you do not need a sports bra. However, if you go to the gym, break a sweat when you walk, run, bike etc. you must have a sports bra. A sports bra is designed to minimize breast movement, wick sweat, and reduce potential damage to the chest ligaments. The most important of these being that they reduce damage to the ligaments, because once that damage is done, the ligaments are stretched there is no exercise to get them back, the result…saggy breasts.
We all have our own opinion on what is pretty, for some of you it is lace, some a pretty colour and for others maybe it is a print or extra strapping. Whatever makes you think“ wow, I wish I didn’t have to wear a shirt with this” that is the pretty bra for you! We all deserve something that makes us feel really beautiful.
“Whatever makes you think “wow, I wish I didn’t have to wear a shirt with this” that is the pretty bra for you!”
Lastly, a comfort bra, priceless. This should be something that you can put on at home and just feel total comfortable in. Sometimes it does not have wires, or maybe you pull it on over the head but if you can afford it buy yourself a leisure bra, it will last a long time as you are not wearing it as much as your basics and we all know going without a bra is often not attractive!
Having these 5 bras will make you feel great and will ensure the maximum usage length to all of them.
