Lingerie Buying Guide: Styles of Modern Bras

A lingerie buying guide would not be complete without a thorough description of the different styles of modern bras you can choose from in lingerie stores. If you are not sure of your bra size, most lingerie stores have knowledgeable sales attendants that can help you determine which cup size you are free of charge.

In this lingerie buying guide we’ll also include breast forms and enhancers as there are many of them available in the market that can help you enhance your bust and make sure it has the perfect shape you want and desire.

Look into the bra section of any lingerie buying guide and you’ll find the following styles of modern bras: balconette, demi-cup, full coverage, mastectomy, nursing, plunge, minimizer,  push-up and athletic or sport bras just to meantion a few of them. Some of them, such as the mastectomy or nursing bras are used by women undergoing a special situation such as having suffered a mastectomy or breastfeeding their babies. You may not feel comfortable in some of these bra styles but you should talk to the salesperson, tell her what your expectations are and she’ll help you find the style of modern bra you are looking for.

Breast forms and enhancers are also part of this lingerie buying guide. Breast forms, such as those for post mastectomy, mimic the look, feel and weight of natural breasts and they are worn inside the bra or swimsuit so that women feel comfortable and confident. Other common enhancers are push-up pads and chicken cutlets, that allow women to have a sexier bust and add a cup of bra cups to their size.

It is important to know that these lingerie items serve different purposes. Corsets are usually designed to significantly reduce waist size while the bustier is a strapless bra that provides support and definition to the breasts.
