Ask any woman who has gotten her bra professionally sized and she’ll tell you: The right fit can make all the difference.

Pro tip: Bras are made of delicate fabrics and elastics and should always be laundered by hand or placed in a lingerie bag and washed on the gentle cycle in cool water. Be sure to hang them to dry. “Never, ever put your bras in the dryer — that will be shorten their lifespan,” she emphasizes.

1. T-shirt / Seamless / Contour bra

This style goes by all three names, which essentially performs the function of “disappearing” underneath knitted or clingy clothing so that straps and bumps don’t stick up through the fabric. The cups always hold their shape, even when breasts aren’t in them, and are made on a mold of thicker materials that provide great nipple coverage — a common concern for many women. (Take note: Newer “spacer bras” that also fall under this style are made of lighter, more breathable fabric that provides less nipple coverage.) You can get this type of bra in a variety of options, including full coverage, plunge and strapless

2. Underwire bra

Bras made with underwire that surround the base of breasts provide structure by keeping the breasts anchored to the chest. While some women love the supportive feel, others find it uncomfortable. If you fall in the former category, look for underwire that is double or triple wrapped inside casings for more comfort. You can find underwire bras in the plunge, demi and full-coverage styles, as well as in nursing and post-mastectomy bras. “If you hate underwire bras, the good news is that there are plenty of non-wired bras on the market now — you just have to shop around to find what works best for your breasts.

3. Push-up bra

Nothing beats a push-up bra if you want to lift the twins higher. “The most versatile style is one where the ‘cutlets’ can be removed so you can bump up your cleavage when you want, but not have your boobs be the center of attention when you don’t,” says Dale. This style is also a good solution for those with breast asymmetry — where one breast is bigger than the other (totally normal!) — or for those who’ve had lumpectomies since you can wear padding in only one cup. Despite their reputation, push-up bras are not so much about adding volume (though they do some of that, too) as they are about lifting tissue to a higher elevation

4. Balconette and demi bras (they are different!)

“There’s a great deal of confusion between the balconette and demi bra styles since many manufacturers call a demi a balconette and vice-versa,”. They’re actually not the same type of bra. The balconette is a sexier version of a full-coverage bra, with the cup cut a bit smaller to show more of the top half of the breast.

The demi bra goes even lower than the balconette, with a single vertical seam up each cup and with the tops of the cups cut straight across. The demi style works well under lower, scoop neck outfits. It’s also a good choice for those with shallower breast tissue as it lifts each breast up without creating cleavage or creasing.

5. Bralette

These are the hottest new trend!” says Dale of the bras that are made as a one-piece without clasps and an unstructured style that can slip on over your head. Many bralettes are made of supportive stretch lace material with adjustable straps and bands and come in longline styles that extend further down the torso. They’re comfortable enough to wear to sleep or on weekends, but fashionable enough to be worn as sexy lingerie or a layering insert inside of a professional jacket. And for those with fuller busts, there are even some bralette styles made with underwire.

6. Strapless and convertabile bras

Strapless styles are usually chosen to accommodate skin-baring outfits and come in regular or longline versions, which may be called bustiers. However, there is a difference between convertible and strapless styles. Convertibles allow you to change up straps to crisscross or wear in other ways. You can choose to ditch the straps altogether, but it’s not constructed the same way as a true strapless bra. In other words: If you’re looking for versatility, go for a convertible. If you only need a strapless, go for a specific style.

Since all the support of a strapless comes from around band, you may want to go down a band size and up a cup size, advises Dale. “Strapless bras are tricky to fit because of differing cup construction — from plunge to full coverage — so if you need one for a particular outfit, bring it along so you can see how it looks over the bra.

7. Sports bra (they’re not all created equally)

Online Bra Shopping

When you want to get the most out of your workout, pick up a sports bra. “Like running or hiking shoes, you should pick one that is right for your level of activity,”. Most sports bras have a guide that tells you if it’s for low, medium or high impact — the difference between say yoga and aerobic activity.

There are basically two types of sports bras: compression and encapsulation. The first is one that gives you the “uni-boob” look to hold your breasts down by compressing them. The latter is more like a regular bra, where each breast has its own cup. For moderate-to-high impact activity (like running), always wear a bra that does double-duty with both compression and encapsulation qualities.

8. Minimizer bra

This concept is a bit old school since many professional bra fitters today believe that a seamed, full-coverage bra does the best job of minimizing the appearance of larger breasts. A minimizer bra style spreads breast tissue across the chest rather than bringing it all to the front with centered projection. Many minimiser bras have other features, like wider wings to reduce the appearance of back rolls.

9. Adhesive backless bra /cut outs

You’ve probably seen these in clothing catalogs or at the checkout of lingerie shops. This option is best suited for smaller or lighter-weight breasts, says Dale. They’re a good choice if you want some lift or want to bring the breasts together (usually in a backless outfit). Keep in mind that some adhesive bras may be uncomfortable to wear during warmer summer months or in tropical climates.

You are not alone.

The case of the escaping bra strap is common. We all worry about that vagabond bra strap that bungee jumps off your shoulder. It then causes endless amounts of overthinking as you find a sneaky way to lift it back to its place while ensuring that no one is watching. Don’t we have enough to worry about already? It is time to put an end to this loosening bra problem once and for all. And like in most cases, the solution lies in the problem, which we must first understand.

1 You’re wearing the wrong size

It’s the oldest and the most common reason. A large number of women spend years wearing the wrong size bra. This can be uncomfortable and even unhealthy. One easy way to find out is to check if the center gore that connects the two cups lies flat against your chest or not. If it doesn’t touch your skin, you may need to opt for a bigger size. Or if there is a gap between your breast and the bra cup, then you need a smaller size. Either way, it’s best to get correctly measured. If you want to do it yourself, you can try the bra size calculator here.

2 You need to change your bra style

Despite getting the size right, you could still suffer from loose bra straps. Because if you are wearing the wrong bra style that doesn’t account for your shoulder width, breast firmness, and fullness, then you could experience slipping straps too. For example, if you’re a petite size, a balconette may be more comfortable. On the other hand, curvier women may need more support and should opt for bras will full coverage cups. When you get the size as well as the style right, the straps are sure to stay in place.

3 You need to adjust it right

Don’t overcompensate for loosening straps by tightening them too much. If your bra strap is cutting into the flesh of your shoulder, you aren’t doing it right. Make sure the band on your bra is in a snug setting and adjust the band to sit just below your shoulder blades. Tighten the straps and bend forward to make sure your breasts sit comfortably in the cups. If the back band of your bra keeps riding up through the day, it could also cause the straps to fall off.

This one is our favorites. You can opt for a string tie-up or a sturdier strap. Choose wisely depending on how much support you need. You can also choose to mix and match the top with a solid colored bikini bottom or high-waisted shorts.
