It is every woman’s joy whenever they buy a size that fits them perfectly. It is usually a comfortable fit and as a result, the confidence of the woman is boosted a notch higher. To be able to pick out the most appropriate terms, there are a few pointers that you need to be conversant with as a woman. In this time and era, you must know bra terms that will ensure your accuracy in selecting a bra. These terms include the following:

bra termsSoft cup bra

This bra is quite simple with no padding, contouring or even a lining. This term is common with the wire-less bras, as well as the under-wired bra, and hence a close look-out is necessary.

The contour bras

They are not only padded, but also lined giving them a natural rounded shape even without the owner wearing it.

The push-up/ padded bra

This is a bra that is designed to give your breast an extra cup-size. It enhances the size as well as giving your breast an uplift to create an irresistible cleavage. The padding are also different, some are made of foam padding, while there are those that are water or gel based and others have cotton padding. The padding can also be built into the bra or removable.

Lined bra/ cups

This bra is similar to the padded bra expect that the padding is thinner, and it does not have enough padding to add an extra size to the breasts. They are a good pick for fuller figured women, since they are supportive without adding bulk to the outfit.

Wire-free/ Wireless bra

These are bras that lack the underwire but are still lined, contoured or padded. It is not assured that you will get a wire-free bra that is soft- cupped. Because of this reason, it is important that you pay attention to the detail before rushing in to buy a bra.

There are other concepts that cannot be overlooked during the purchasing of a bra. Check the bra thoroughly to ensure what type of bra you fancy is what you are getting. Some of the additional concepts are:

  • Does the bra open from the front or the back?
  • Is the setting for the closure made of corset hook closure or a clasp hook setting?
  • Are the bra straps easily adjustable?
  • Are the straps on the bra thick or thin?
  • Check to ensure that the bra you plan to buy will serve the purpose you need it for.
