Fancy, beautiful lingerie has been around for centuries. It’s the ultimate expression of sensuality, confidence and luxury that can completely transform a person’s self-esteem. Nowadays, lingerie comes in so many different styles, sizes, fabrics, and colors that you’re bound to find something that fits even the most unique styles absolutely perfectly.
When it comes to bras, the sky’s the limit when it comes to styles, comfort levels, and how and where you can wear them. Whether you prefer sticking with a full-coverage comfort bra that’s hidden under your clothes at all times or want to go bold and wear a statement bra as a top, you won’t have a hard time finding a beautiful piece that suits your style without sacrificing your comfort.
There’s no time like the present to try a totally new style that will make you feel sexy, empowered, and excited. It’s recommended that every woman invests in at least 5 types of bras: t-shirt, seamed, strapless, sexy, and leisure. That being said, there’s no reason you can’t go far beyond that and start a whole collection!
As the cooler winter months approach, you may be wondering why or if you even need to be worried about buying special bras to fit the season. While there’s really no such thing as a “summer bra” versus a “winter bra,” there are a few nuances to pay attention to as you’re planning what you’re going to wear under those bulky winter outfits. Next time you go shopping for a new bra, keep these beautiful styles in mind:
Who doesn’t love a classic, sexy look that works just as well with a casual sundress as it does with a sultry night-out look? Balconette bras are half-cup or demi-cup bras that intentionally reveal the upper part of the breast. The band is designed to support the breasts (much like a balcony, hence the name) and lift them up rather than press them together toward the center like a traditional bra. They’re the perfect choice when paired with lower-cut necklines and work well with a variety of bust sizes.
During the colder months, it’s always a good idea to wear a padded bra. This not only provides slight insulation – it prevents anything from showing through your bra when you get especially chilly. This is a super important bra to have on hand if you work in an office or have a lot of work or family parties to attend during the colder months.
You can find padded bras in a variety of styles, so whether you’re looking for strapless or full coverage, you can find exactly what you need.
Push-up bras may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but they are a great idea to have on hand in the winter months. This is because your chest can start to look extra flat or shapeless under all the layers of sweaters and coats you have to wear in the colder months. Better yet, a lot of push-up bras come with an extra layer of padding, so you’re reaping the benefits of both styles.
Are you getting excited to whip out your favorite long-sleeved bodycon dress or body-hugging sweater? If you’re planning on wearing a bra underneath, you’ll want to make sure it’s seamless.
Tight fabrics tend to show every nook and cranny of what’s underneath them, so a bra with seams will make the lines and straps visible. That’s why it’s best to go the seamless route – no matter how tight your dress or top is, you’ll never be able to tell you to have a bra underneath!
Sexy Statement Bras
A sexy bra can make all the difference in your outfit and self-confidence. Whether you love a classic lace piece, an edgy harness set, or a wild latex bra, a sexy bra is a perfect opportunity to mix up your style and add a special something to an outfit (even if no one is going to see it but you).
If your city hasn’t hit frigid temperatures yet, this could be the perfect opportunity to pull together a “night out” look that showcases your new bra front and center. Pair a lace bralette with an oversized blazer and classic jeans, or try your latex bra with a fun skirt or a pair of baggy pants. Statement bras also look great under a mesh or fishnet top or poking out of a button-down shirt. Whatever your style, a sexy statement bra will surely be the cherry on top.
But just because you need to be bundled up doesn’t mean you have to settle for your old worn-in t-shirt bra when you’re dying to wear a fun, fancy piece. Even if you’re the only one who knows you’re wearing a gorgeous statement bra underneath your pea coat or oversized sweater, there’s something to be said about the confidence and empowerment that comes from knowing you’re wearing something so beautiful.
