When you start wearing bras, the world is a whole new place altogether. You hate it at first and then get used to it for all the support it provides you with. It’s been a while since we bought our very first bra and styles are evolving with each passing day. But in spite of your love-hate relationship with them, here are 10 types of bra EVERY girl should have by the time she’s 21! ‘Coz our ta-tas need all the love and support to stay healthy!
10 Different Types of Bra
1. The Everyday Essential
A simple and comfortable t-shirt bra in a nude colour that matches your skin tone can be worn under almost anything. You might think a white bra should be good enough. But guess what, a white bra shows right through white tops! A nude coloured bra that blends with your skin tone is an investment to make. POPxo Recommends: Cotton Underwired T-Shirt Bra (Rs 599)
2. The Super Pretty One!
‘Coz who doesn’t like to own a super pretty bra? Every woman deserves to feel beautiful and trust us, a sexy bra will surely make you feel that way. Or at least make you hate wearing bras a little less! You can wear it on a special night with bae or just when you need to perk up your mood. POPxo Recommends: Navy Blue Solid Bra (Rs 2,795)
Visible bra straps through spaghetti tops can totally ruin a look, girls. While sometimes they can actually add to our look, most often though, they’re better hidden. For all the strapless tops and dresses in your closet, you need a good-quality strapless bra that stays in its place no matter how much you dance or move around! POPxo Recommends: Push Up Strapless Bra (Rs 1,276)
Seamless bras are made for all those body-hugging t-shirts and dresses in your wardrobe. ‘Coz you don’t want your bra to grab attention for all the wrong reasons, right? It’s worth investing in a couple of these *miracle fit* bras, as they give you a smooth silhouette and won’t ruin your look with visible lines. POPxo Recommends: Seamless Plunge Bra (Rs 799)
5. Workout Babies!
A regular bra just won’t give your girls the kind of support they need when you workout. Whether you’re small chested or big, you need a sports bra to get you through any kind of workout session! You can go for thicker straps, underwire and racerback designs if you have a bigger bust. POPxo Recommends: Grey Sports Bra (Rs 1,257)
6. The Pseudo Backless Bra
You shouldn’t have to think too much before buying a dress with an interesting back. A bra with a transparent back strap is surely going to make life so much easier for you! Go ahead and flaunt that gorgeous back, ladies! POPxo Recommends: Transparent Back Strap Bra (Rs 399)
7. The Comfy Bralette
With summer around the corner, you will surely need a comfortable bralette in your lingerie collection. These styles are comfortable and also provide the support a regular bra would. You can wear these beauties as tops and throw a shrug or kimono on top to look summer ready instantly! POPxo Recommends: Embroidered Lace Bralette (Rs 695)
8. A Convertible Bra
Girls, this multiway bra that can be worn in 5 different ways is definitely a wardrobe staple! We’re sure you’ve stocked up on one shoulder and off shoulder tops for the days to come, so why not match it with a convertible bra and show it off? POPxo Recommends: Convertible Bra (Rs 899)
9. The One With A Plunging Neckline!
Because when you wear a deep neck top, you shouldn’t have to keep adjusting your neckline. Wearing a bra with a plunging neckline will save you from worrying about your bra peeking through your low cut top or dress. The yoke of such bras is lower than a regular t-shirt bra, which gives an instant boost to your cleavage! POPxo Recommends: T-Shirt Plunge Bra (Rs 749)
10. The Stylised Back Bra
Want to perk up a sheer top or a strappy style? Guess what, a stylised back bra is all you need to make those simple sheer tops work in your favour! You can totally wear this one for a beach vacay with friends, what say?
