Your one-stop guide to find everything you need to know about the most comfortable bra brands for every cup size and shape.
Finding the ideal bra is easier said than done. First off, there are dozens of different styles to choose from and then finding one that actually fits properly and feels comfortable can seem almost impossible. In addition to that, they can cost more than your monthly Internet bill, so you want to make sure that you are getting the best bras for the price and that they will hold up, wash after wash.
We try out and test all the types of bras that exist, from sports to strapless brassieres. We carefully evaluate each bra according to price, style, fit, support and of course comfort. But that’s not all, we also put these top brands to the test in the wash. Laundering undergarments can drastically change the stretch and fit.
Before we share with you some of the top choices, here is everything you need to know about how to find the perfect bra:
How often should I replace my bras?
Most of us have the tendency to wear our beloved bras longer than we should, out of fear that we won’t find another one as comfortable. The more you wear and wash your bra, the sooner it will need to be replaced. If you notice that your bra lacks support and stretch, then it is time to get it replaced. Another reason to change them yearly, is because your cup and band size can change.
How can I tell if my bra still fits?
- Standing in front of the mirror, you should be able to see that your breasts sit inside of the cups comfortably. If they are spilling out, it is a sign that your bra is too small and you need a bigger cup size. If there are gaps between the cup and breasts then it is a sign you need a smaller cup size.
- The under band shouldn’t curve upwards on your back, instead it should sit flatly and wrap around your bodice in a straight line.
- The straps should feel comfortable on your shoulders without digging into your skin or sliding off your shoulders.
Before purchasing a new bra online, always follow the size chart. Lingerie brands are like clothes, their sizes vary from brand to brand. So, now that you know how to tell if your bra fits properly, here is everything you need to know about the best bras for every size, shape and style:
