Lingerie Lessons: Bras

Did you know that there are at least 28 types of bras available, but not every bra is right for every person or outfit. Here's a brief list of common and popular bra styles by Seductions Lingerie. 

                  

BANDEAU:

Idea for women with smaller breast, this stretchy material is made of a simple band, sometimes having built-in cups, but provide little support or shaping. 

CORSET: 

This is a fitted bodice piece worn to shape your figure. A popular choice, many women wear this to give an hourglass shape. 

PADDED:

A thick padding that lines the cup to enhance the perceived size of the breasts and cleavage.  It can also provide padding between garments to conceal nipples.

PUSH-UP:

A bra that combines angled cups with padding that pushes up the breasts to create cleavage.

RACER-BACK:

The straps form a “V” or “T” between the shoulder blades.  Popular in the sports bra styles and for wearing under tank tops. 

SHELF:

This bra does not cover the nipple area, but provides a shelf using open cups for the breasts to sit. 

STRAPLESS:

Cups sit on an extra wide band but do not have straps.

UNDERWIRE:

The band of metal at the base of the breast in some bras that helps lift and support the busts.
