Bralettes

Bralettes are a fashion item that has been in high demand for the past year or so. They serve two purposes. Bralettes were originally designed to be lightweight, thin bras for smaller chests. These bras don’t have any padding or underwire. They are more natural and provide minimal support. Bralettes are now manufactured for a different purpose. To be seen. For years, women have been told not to show bras. But it has become fashionable.

Backless Bras

Bras that are backless have a low back band or no band at all, which can make it difficult to wear low-backed clothing. It is not easy to wear a bra when you have a backless dress. This is why backless bras were created. They come in many styles, from strapless and convertible to adhesive. Backless bras can be worn in your regular size.

Nursing & Maternity Bras

Maternity bras provide safety, comfort, and support for women during pregnancy. Maternity bras are designed to provide comfort and support for pregnant women. To avoid irritation, many maternity bras won’t have an underwire. They will come with a wider band and more comfortable cups that can be adjusted to your changing breast sizes.

Mastectomy Bras

A mastectomy bra can be used with breast prosthetics and is specifically designed for women who have had a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or another type of surgery. For extra padding, post-surgical bras have discreet pockets within the cups. Mastectomy bras can be designed to have prosthetics pockets in either one or both of the cups.

Minimizer Bras

A minimizer bra will help you draw less attention towards your chest. These bras can reduce your chest size by as much as 2 inches (outwards), giving you a flattering silhouette. This miracle is achieved by evenly distributing breast tissue across the entire cup, instead of the semi-circle shape. It creates the illusion of a smaller bust. Minimizer bras can be used for outfits with a slimmer silhouette, such as turtlenecks or button-down shirts. This style should be purchased in your normal size. You don’t have to reduce the size to get a smaller appearance.

Front Closure Bras

You can use this style with any bra, from sports bras to plunging necklines. But it’s most popular because of one thing. This bra is easier to put on than regular bras, and it’s much more comfortable, especially for hot days. Front closure bras should be a little tighter as it doesn’t allow you to adjust the size

Adhesive Bras
