Bra Buying Guide

There are so many different occasions out there where you’re going to want to dress up in something a bit different from the norm. Be it going for a run, a fancy black tie dinner or just a night out with friends, you’re going to want to both feel and look fantastic. That’s why it’s important to find the right lingerie for you and here at Bras and Honey we’re dedicated to making sure you have all the information to make the right choice so we’ve put together this simple bra buying guide to help you out.

Take the Plunge

When it comes to heading out at night, there are a range of bras types available for you to make a choice from. One of these types is the plunge bra, which exaggerates your cleavage, bringing your sexy cleavage to the forefront. If you’re looking to raise yourself up instead, then a balconette bra is a great choice: these bras shape your breasts and push them upwards but don’t offer the same cleavage line as a plunge bra does. Along with these common types of bra, there are other bras that are perfectly suitable for a night out or a special occasion where you want to look your glamorous best. Next up in this bra buying guide is the simple strapless: a classic a perfect for that glamorous dress you want to wear to the white tie party you’re going to.

Sporty or Spicy?

One of the bestselling types of bras these days is the sports bra. Unlike conventional and underwired bras, they are designed not to show off but to provide the absolute maximum in support for the wearer. For those of you blessed with that little bit more, it’s essential to find a bra that not only fits you perfectly but offers you fantastic support as well. After you’ve finished your run, well, it’s time to head out and one of the bras taking the world by storm nowadays is the multiway. A multiway bra can be adapted to fit any type of dress: it can be worn strapless, as a racer back where the straps cross over, a halter neck with one strap around your neck or just with one strap for that off your shoulder dress. All this variation means that this bra can save you having to buy many different types of bra.

For day to day use, you’re going to want comfort, comfort, comfort, which is where both full cup and soft cup bras come in. In this bra buying guide, we’ve already told you about many different styles, but these two are some of the most popular simply because of the comfort they provide. Soft cup bras are not underwired, which means that they hold your breasts gently without the pressure that wires can have. Full cup bras, on the other hand, provide you with the utmost support, so if you’ve been given a bit more than most, you’re going to be in comfort too.

Moulded T-shirt bras offer you the seamless shape to go under a thin top like a t-shirt, while nursing bras do exactly what they say: they offer you the support and comfort you need while you’re pregnant and afterwards, also offering you easy access for breastfeeding and the additional comfort so you don’t irritate yourself. Whatever bra you feel you need, remember how important it is to find a bra that fits you well. A well-fitting bra can go a long way to making you more comfortable, while the comfort provided is essential. Meanwhile, the style of the bra should suit what you want from it, so make sure it looks good both with and without a top to show off your body all the time.
