“All you need is confidence and a supporting Bra”
Bra and science
Research conducted by Torbay chiropractic UK showed that 80% of women wear the wrong size bra throughout their life which either digs into the skin or falls out of the shoulder and sometimes rips off, which turns out to be an unpleasant experience. Bra contributes to body shape and posture by protecting tender muscles and fat in and around the breast. Hence, picking the right fit and size plays an important role in flaunting your shape and how you carry your posture.
Bras and types
Bras come in diverse types, shapes, sizes, and materials. There is one available for every occasion. Hand-knitted bras to machine-made; stretchable to detachable, and cups vary from sizes A to F, Padded to non-padded, and wired to non-wired. Picking the perfect one for you can be life-changing, so it is best to make informed choices.
Bras and shapes
Breast shapes naturally differ from one woman to another. Female hormones play a vital role in determining the shape and size of your breast, areolae, and even your nipple. It is crucial to be aware of the breast shape while shopping.
- Round breast shape needs support and coverage; a T-Shirt bra, Triangular bra, and plunge bra are a wise choice.
- Bell-shaped breasts have more volume in the bottom and need a lift and support; look for a bra with underwires like a full cup bra or a cut and sew type bra.
- Tear-drop-shaped breasts are the same as bell-shaped and need lift and support; look for a bra that offers support and lifts the breast like an underwire demi-cup bra.
- Asymmetrical breasts need adjustments in shape; go for a seamless bra and T-shirt bra for a sleek look.
- Papaya-shaped breasts do not have the natural breast line; go for a cut and sew bra with transverse or diagonal-seamed cups.
- Plum-shaped breasts need some push-ups; go for a triangular bra or push-up bra.
- Apple-shaped breasts need some side support; a well-contoured bra with an underwire can list the breast to the centre.
- Cherry-shaped breasts need some lift; choose a plunge bra or a triangular bra.
- Lemon-shaped breasts are set aside and need a lifted look for a padded bra or push-up bra with or without an underwire.
Fabric for you
Bra materials play a vital role in providing shape and support to your breast; they range from nylon, polyester, cotton, and spandex to silk. Bra materials are usually knitted or woven; Sometimes woven with materials like silk-blend or even 100% silk for a luxurious look. Wisely choose your fabric based on the usage and occasion.
