This question (and variations of it) keep showing up in our research on women’s lingerie doubts… Allow us to set the record straight for you…
No bra is bad for health. As long as you wear the right bra at the right time, there is nothing to worry about.
Let me ask you this:
Would you stay in the same shoes for 24 hours? No, right? The same logic applies to bras. All bras are not made equal. And from a wellness standpoint, different types of bras serve different purposes for their wearers, across different activities. So as long as you pick the right one for the different things you do, no bra is going to pose a threat to your health!
Here are some of the bras that you ought to have in your wardrobe, and use as per the occasion. Read on!
The T-shirt Bra For Every Day
Wearing jersey, whether as a T-shirt, or a dress, entails clinging. A t-shirt bra is customised with light padding to minimise the nipple show through the clingy material, and they usually come with moulded cups for a smooth outer-finish. These bras are ideal to wear with casual tees, kurtas and T-shirt dresses when you’re stepping out for the day.
The Strapless Bra For Parties
When you’re wearing a sleeveless, off-shoulder or strappy kind of outfit for a party, a proper strapless bra will work at keeping bra lines hidden and preventing awkward fidgeting. Ensure the band fits snugly under your bust, and opt for one with an underwire that sits flat against your skin. Strapless bras also have a silicone grip along its inside edges, so you don’t have to worry about slippage during the day.
At-home Bras For Lazy Evenings
Give your breasts room to breathe at night. We recommend wearing a non-wired, at-home bra for some support while you sleep. You want an at-home, low-compression bra without wires and tight straps for just basic support and slippage-control (so you needn’t worry about awkwardly covering up with a stole as you rush to answer the doorbell)!
The Sports Bra For Workouts
Many women end up wearing their everyday bras to the gym. But workouts put a different kind of stress on your back and breasts. Which is why it pays to switch up to a sports bra when you hit the gym, or while indulging in other forms of exercise/sports. You can take your pick of low, medium and high impact bras (all of which come with varying levels of compressions and support) based on your choice of activity.
Minimizer Bras For Work
When you don’t want to be worried about whether your shirt buttons are popping, or whether your cleavage is on display when you bend forward, a full-coverage minimiser bra is just what office calls for. Comfortable, cushioned straps and firm compression that reduces the appearance of bust volume, the minimizer bra should be every working woman’s lingerie staple.
Super-sexy Bras For Special Nights
Super sexy bras, date-night bras – call them what you will, but we all need these mood-upping bras in our arsenal. Don’t settle for the everyday bra when you’re planning something special. It’s all about your personal preferences. Think of them as the sexy stilettoes of your lingerie wardrobe!
Now that you know what bra to wear when, maybe it’s time to update your lingerie drawer.
