One of the most important considerations when choosing intimate lingerie is the fabric of your bra. You need a bra that is comfortable but also offers you support and shaping. Cotton is soft and breathes, but is not your only choice for comfort. Also, cotton by itself may not offer enough shaping and support. Nylon and polyester are supportive and can be woven into luxurious lace, lustrous satin or light microfibers that feel smooth against your skin. Look for bras with spandex added for the comfort of stretch. A fabric blend is often your best choice for the perfect combination of skin pampering and pretty shaping.
