Bras don't have to be fancy, but they do have to be functional. Take comfort and function into consideration when purchasing an all-around bra for any occasion. Bra companies are constantly updating their design and fabrics, so a bra complaint you thought you had to live with may be solved by now. Tired of slipping straps? Bali® and Playtex® both offer a number of bras with straps specifically angled to stay on your shoulders. Bali even guarantees that their No Slip straps with thin grippers will stay in place. Underwires jabbing you? Bali No Poke Wire bras actually have patent-pending, cushioned, spring-tipped wires that move with you. Want to feel fresher? Get bras that breathe, like Bali Downtime bras or the many Playtex bras with Airform® fabric. Sensitive skin? Many Barely There® bras are free of tags, so there's no itch. Tired of show-through? From doubled cup fabric to a variety of linings, there are bra solutions in stores for you.
