Bras get a bad rap. Usually people assume that if a bra is pretty, it can't be supportive, and if it's supportive, it can't be comfortable. Is it any wonder you love shopping for and looking at pretty bras, but tend to buy bras that might not give as much support as is needed? Or, even worse, you buy an uncomfortable bra because you think that's what you have to have for support. There are so many types of bra out there for you to choose from that one will definitely fit you the way you've always dreamed. Bras aren't something made for another woman to be comfortable in.
Underwire - If you are wearing an uncomfortable underwire bra, you need to double check a few things. First, have you been professionally measured? If you're wearing the wrong size bra, an underwire is going to cut into your body or rub wrong against your ribcage. Underwire still may not be the right choice for you, but don't count it out when it might have just been the wrong size.
Sectioned Cup - Avoid the underwire and go with a supportive sectioned cup bra. These are made with up to three sections to support you without a hint of jiggle. If you've been wearing a sectioned cup bra and it is uncomfortable, make sure you're in the right size. Then check how many sections your bra has for support. If you're wearing a bra with a two section cup, try one with a three section cup. It can make a difference not only in how your clothing looks, but also in how the bra feels on your body.
Whatever bra types you try on, make sure you have the right size and that the fabric is comfortable for you. When you know what type of bra to wear for your body, you will look great, feel comfortable, and your confidence will soar knowing you have found a great bra that fits you just right.
