Clothing has a lot to say about the person wearing it. For this reason most women take their time to prepare and present themselves in the finest way possible. Though this attention is usually given to the clothing that is mostly seen on the outside, it is also equally important to choose the right clothing that is on the inside. A very important part of dressing well is having the right bra that properly fits an outfit. Here are the important factors you should consider when choosing a bra.
Size Knowing your size is very important when choosing the perfect bra. It is advisable to visit a lingerie store to get the right measuremeants. For those who prefer to shop online, they also need to know their actual size to make sure that the bra fits properly. Using a tape measure, get the band size and breast measuremeants (read "My guide to choosing the right bra size" for the detailed description of proper measuring).
Type of bra For working out, a sports bra works great. For those who want to make their chest smaller, a minimizer bra works miracles. There are also bras that are designed to enhance cleavage such as the push up bra or the balconette bra. A push up bra comes with a unique structure with padding that pushes and collects the breasts up. Typically, the padding is already included in the lining of the bra, while some have cotton, water or silicone inserts.
On the other hand, a balconette bra has a lower cut on the bust to get a fuller shape of the breasts. Full cup bra is designed for women who prefer to cover an entire breast. There are also other styles like: contour bra that provides great support even after removing the straps; bras with removable straps that you can change for clear straps in case you need it; nursing bras for nursing women; soft bras for women appreciating the light feel; wired or wireless bras.
Fabric Choose the right fabric. Pick a delicate bra that is made from a comfortable fabric like cotton. A lacy soft bra is cool to wear during summer months. A lightly lined soft cup bra also looks great under sweaters or t-shirts. It’s a good alternative to an underwire bra that provides good support. Many women choose the comfort of a soft cup bra. Overall, wearing the right bra can make wonders. With a wide variety of selections to choose from, you will find a bra that perfectly reflects your interests and personality.
