When choosing intimate lingerie, fabric is one of the most important considerations. Whether underwire or wirefree, bra fabric should maximize comfort. Lacy bras are pretty, but can easily irritate skin. Satin bras are also pretty and often comfortable, but usually need to be hand-washed and require extensive extra care.
Cotton is probably the most comfortable fabric for most intimate lingerie, but is not quite as racy or sexy as other fabrics. Cotton bras can usually be machine-washed and tend to last must longer than fancier bras with radical embellishments.
