Many bras will say that they can be worn for any occasion, but it really isn’t true. You wouldn’t wear high-heels to go hiking or a hoodie to have dinner at a fancy restaurant, would you? Of course not. Just like your outer layers, your bra also needs to be appropriate for different activities and outfits.
High-impact activities, like aerobic sports, require more support. Conversely, a corseted, fitted dress probably calls for a strapless bra with minimal fabric. Other solution-focused types of bras include front close bra, minimizer bra, sports bra, side support bra, unlined bra, and wirefree bra to name a few.
In each case, each bra plays a very specific function; it’s not a job for your everyday day bra.
Here’s a short guide on how to choose the best bra options for any function.
Front-Close: Maidenform® One Fab Fit® Full Coverage Lace T-Back Bra
It’s no secret that wearing a front-close bra is the secret to having your back appear as smooth as if you weren’t wearing a bra at all. Front close bras also open up your wardrobe options since the clasp front is usually lower than traditional bras.
The Maidenform One Fab Fit Full Coverage Lace T-Back Bra will let you wear dresses with plunging necklines and tight tops. The surprise lace detail on the back makes this bra a combination of function and beauty.
Minimizer: Wacoal Visual Effects Minimizer Bra
A seamless underwire minimizer bra reduces the bust line up to one inch, allowing you to wear what you want.
Wacoal’s Visual Effects Minimizer Bra is the ultimate wearing experience. It features full coverage cups made of supportive lace with a sheer mesh lining. The band is lined with soft sheer stretch mesh providing total comfort.
Sports Bra: Truekind® Reactive Sport Bra
A supportive sports bra is a non-negotiable for your bra drawer. When participating in active sports like running, power-walking, cross-fit, or a barre class you want to keep your parts from flopping around﹘and hurting your back. The Truekind Reactive Sport Bra is the active woman’s best friend.
Breast-feeding women should take note of this bra if your breasts are of greater size than pre-baby. This sports bra provides coverage and extra support at a great price for your possibly temporary endowment. You may even want to get all four colors!
Side Support: Bali® One Smooth U® Ultra Light Illusion Neckline Underwire Bra
It’s not just your front you want your bra to fit well over, your sides are equally important. A side support bra not only gives you ample coverage for your breasts, but can also reduce the look of your bust line.
The Bali One Smooth U Ultra Light Illusion Neckline Underwire Bra provides amazing side support to keep your breasts from spilling over. Plus, the convertible straps make it super versatile for different outfits.
Unlined: Wacoal® Basic Beauty Underwire Bra
Big breasts are beautiful, but a bra with too much fabric can make you feel bulky. Unlined bras are the solution for this dilemma. Whether you like it sheer or lacy, there is an unlined bra for you.
For a refined look and all day comfort you need to have the Wacoal Basic Beauty Underwire Bra. With no extra padding, this bra supports you and gives you a natural shape.
Wirefree: Truekind® Daily Comfort Wirefree Shaper Bra
Here’s a riddle: what looks and feels like a sports bra but functions like your favorite everyday bra? It may sound too good to be true but there is a real answer: The Truekind Daily Comfort Wirefree Shaper Bra.
Combining hook and eye closures with no-wire structured support, nothing beats this bra for comfort plus the non-stop breathable support. With smart sizing from 34A to 46DD this is as close to being an all-occasion bra for any body size that you’re ever going to see.
No matter what you do, there is a bra for you. Love your body and love your life and wear a bra that makes you feel like your best self.
