Choose Bravissimo

Let’s face it– lingerie can be expensive. Branded bras, particularly, because not only are they made from high-quality materials, they are stylish and fashionable as well.

If you’re considering buying a bra, budget matters. But sometimes, you look into a supermarket aisle and focus on the bras they offer at very cheap prices, it makes you wonder if they’re even made to last just even for a month.

In comes Bravissimo. The brand has been a major player in the plus-sized lingerie category, and though it’s an expensive choice, you’re sure to get the best product, service, and comfort.

It’s always easy to choose a cheap bra, but lingerie should be long-term– not 1 month, not 1 week. That bra may be on sale but it’s going to lose its quality by the third wear. Bravissimo makes sure that along with style comes quality, and this is enough a reason to shell out a few pounds and choose Bravissimo.

Finding a Strapless Bra that Fits

Buying a strapless bra may be tricky, but we’re here to help you out in letting you find the best fit that will give you the comfort and support that you’re looking for.

First, get yourself fitted. This is important in helping you determine what bra size to buy. A strapless bra should have a wide hem, so that it will be capable of providing support. A wider hem also means more fabric, ensuring comfort for your bust. A firm underwire improves the shape of your breast. It also allows the bra to have a firmer silhouette, and makes sure that the cups stay in place even as you move.

A strapless bra is a great choice if you’re looking for a bra that has a natural feel. Its style is sexy, relaxed, and sensual. You’ll definitely turn up the style points as you wear it with your favorite dresses, halter tops, and off-shouldered gowns!

How to Choose a Sports Bra

What do you need to look for when you buy a sports bra? There are a lot of brands out there in the market right now, and many offer different features and styles, but when it comes to buying sports bras, these are the important things that you must consider.

Support is your number one priority. Depending on your activity, choose a sports bra that can provide the appropriate support to reduce bounce and discomfort.

Size also matters. “Overspill” should not occur, and the band strap must be hooked on the loosest eye of the bra.

Material should also be taken into consideration. You want to move freely and comfortably, so make sure the material doesn’t interfere with your activity by being too bulky. Make sure it’s also absorbent– sweat tends to irritate sensitive skin, and you don’t want that to happen.

Make your performance change for the better and wear a sports bra now!

Bra Essentials

We all know how a bra is a part of our daily wardrobe. There may be a lot of styles and designs, but basically, it all comes down to 3 types of bras that you should have in your closet.

A convertible bra serves a lot of functions. We love how easily you can convert it into a strapless, a halter-type, and a crisscross style, depending on your outfit or the occasion.

Nude bras are a great choice if you want to wear white dresses or any light-coloured shirts.

Finally, a t-shirt bra are your best bet if you’re planning on wearing dresses made of thin fabrics, tight blouses, and body-hugging tops. They shape the breasts without the additional pads, making you look fabulous even more while wearing your favorite outfit.

It’s best to have these bras inside your closet so you can make the most out of your outfit and complement it with a great choice in lingerie.

Quick Bra Fit Tips

Women are often in a pickle due to poorly fitted bras. A large percentage of women often have a bra too small that causes gapage over the edge of the cup. Often women buy  big bras that ride up and cause embarrassment.
So in order for you to avoid awkward situations because of a poorly-fit bra, here are some tips to consider.

Bra fitting is important– but if you do not have the resources to consult the services of a bra fitter, you can do it yourself. Bra fitting isn’t easy, but with enough practice I’m sure you’ll get through it.

Remember that the cup should be able to snugly fit your breasts. Bulging means it’s too small, so go up one cup if this happens. Go down a size if there are wrinkles or extra fabric on the cup.

It’s time to go down a band size if it’s “riding” up high in the back. Also, if it feels too tight and leaves red marks, go up a size.

Make sure you get a bra fitting whenever possible!

Choosing The Correct Sports Bra

If you live an active lifestyle, you should know by now that a sports bra is a necessity in order for you to engage in physical activity with comfort and ease. If this is your first time in buying one, we’ll give you tips on how to correctly choose the correct sports bra.

Remember to consider your impact level. Will you be using it for running? Weight training? Basketball, or tennis? Low impact are mostly weight training or walking. Medium is for moderate hiking and inline skating, and high is for aerobics, running, and mountain biking.

Sports bra types vary. If your cup size is A-B, choose the compression type. Combination types are for B-C, while encapsulation types are for D to DD.

Make sure that the fit is perfect– not too tight that you can’t breathe, or not too loose, like a regular bra. Consult your bra fitter for advice, and more tips.

The Best Bra For You

Women come in different sizes and shapes, so it’s only natural that there are many different styles and types of bras to choose from, depending on our bra size. Of course, knowing our exact bra size is important, because it can determine how much support and comfort should be provided by the bra that we choose.

Since there are various bra styles and designs, here are some tips you can help you choose the best bra for you.

Small busts need a bra that will help enhance and hold your breasts. Choose a half-cup, plunge, or padded bras.

Average sized busts have the luxury of choosing any type of bra.

Full busts need a bra that provides support. Go for soft-cupped brassieres and a balcony type brassiere.

Now that you have an idea what lingerie to buy depending on your bust size, remember to have your bra size measured so you’ll be able to get that perfect brassiere.
