20 Bra Types Every Woman Should Know

How many times have you avoided wearing an outfit because you didn't have the right bra to go with it? Or, more accurately, didn't know which bra to wear underneath! I break down all of the different styles of bras to help you select the perfect one for any outfit or event! 

True, when it comes to making wise lingerie choices, we ladies frequently find ourselves in a quandary.

Whether you're an adolescent bewildered by the countless Bras for girls on the market or a bride-to-be seeking for beautiful accessories to her wedding gown, I have got you covered.

1 Women's Push-up Bras, also known as Lift-up Bras, do exactly what their name implies:

They gently push your breasts upwards and closer together to offer you greater cleavage. They come in three different levels of push up soft, moderate, and explosive and are padded on the underside of the cups with either silicone gel or foam to lift up the breast tissue. 

Although they look best with low-cut tops or dresses, they can also be worn with high-neck garments to accentuate your curves. For killer curves, pair your Push-Up Bra with a sleeveless turtleneck bodysuit, thin trousers, and pencil shoes. 

A Push-up Bra can be worn regardless of the size and form of your breasts.

2 Padded Bra: This is a must-have style for any woman! Under T-shirts and fitted clothes, the Bra's cushioned cups prevent nipple show. Padded bras for women are available with or without wires for all-day comfort.

Furthermore, the Padded Bra comes in a variety of necklines and coverages to accommodate different breast sizes. So, pick wisely to find the perfect style for yourself, Even if you have a bigger breast, you can wear one if you choose the lightly-padded version for increased comfort and a smooth, seamless look. 

For a night of dancing and fun, pair your favorite Padded Bra with a fitted shirt, leather tights, and heels.

3 T-Shirt Bra: Ladies' T-shirt Bras are cushioned Bras made for everyday comfort and are the perfect style staple for your lingerie drawer. This Bra boasts seamless, smooth cups that do not show and gently support your bust, making it inconspicuous under body-hugging clothing.

They are available in a number of styles, including strapless and plunge. Remember that while all T-shirt Bras are padded to varying degrees, not all padded Bras are seamless and designed for T-shirts! 

For a seamless and smooth effect, pair your T-shirt Bra with a fitting tee. Your easygoing afternoon 'on the go' appearance will be completed by vintage style bell bottoms, boots, and a beautiful cap.

4 Convertible Bra:

One-strap, two-straps, strapless, or cross-back the Convertible Bra comes in a variety of forms, earning it the nickname "multi-way Bra." It has removable straps that may be adjusted in a variety of ways by connecting them into various slots on the front or back. You can now have just one bra to wear with a range of outfits! 

To wear with a noodle strap top, convert your Bra into a cross-back. Put on a short A-line skirt and a pair of sneakers. You're ready for a coffee date with some imitation gold hoops.

5 Strapless Bra:

Yes, a women's Strapless Bra is a Bra without straps, as the name implies; and no, it won't slip off. The strapless Bra's two cups are held in place by a sturdy, wired under-band, making it ideal for shoulder-baring clothing. Because this band provides all of the support, it's critical to get the appropriate fit - if it's too tight, you'll be uncomfortable, and if it's too loose, it'll keep slipping off! Some multi-way bras even have detachable Bra straps that you may wear in whatever way you wish or leave off entirely. 

Wear a strapless dress with your Strapless Bra. To make your dress stand out for your dinner date, go for neutral makeup with a dash of red lipstick and nude heels.

6 Balconette Bra:

A Balconette Bra is a delicate lingerie style that lifts the bust gently and gives it a rounded appearance. This Bra can hide even the largest of necks thanks to its wide set straps and cups that produce a nearly horizontal neckline (similar to a balcony). Many of the gorgeous Balconette Bras in our online collection can be worn on a regular basis. 

To show off your decolletage, pair your Balconette Bra with a wide-neck blouse. Pair this set with a hand-painted chiffon sari to make a statement at any afternoon gathering.

7 Lace Bra:

A Lace Bra is one of the most sensual pieces of lingerie. It's constructed of delicate lace and comes in a variety of colors and styles, as the name suggests. Lace Bras come in full-coverage cups, demi-cups, push-up designs, and a variety of other styles, making them ideal for both the bedroom and everyday wear. For a fun yet elegant style, consider a beautiful Lace Bralette. 

Pair your Lace Bra with a low-neck garment to make your Bra look cute even if it peeks through. To complete this daytime outfit, add a high-waisted mini skirt and strappy shoes.

8 Strappy Bralette:

A strappy Bralette is a fuss-free bra! Bralettes, which are usually unlined, unpadded, and wire-free, can be worn as both underwear and outerwear. Despite the fact that they are essentially bras, they are designed with minimum construction and may be simply slipped on.

To the next music festival in town, wear your Bralette with denim shorts, military-style boots, and a flower headband. For added warmth, throw on a jacket.

9 Sports Bra:

Women's Sports Bras are meant to give support for the breasts during workouts and are more durable than ordinary bras. They are a must-have for every woman who exercises, since they are designed to prevent bounce and maintain the bust firmly in place during rigorous movement. Sports Bras come in a variety of styles, including padded Sports Bras, compression or encapsulation Sports Bras, pull-over or back-clasp Sports Bras, and so on. 

For a workout, wear your Sports Bra with leggings/shorts and gym shoes. For a 'out of the gym' athleisure appearance, add a sports jacket and a cap.

10 Plunge Bra:

Have you ever wondered, "What exactly is a Plunge Bra?" I am here to provide an answer to that query. Under deep-neck clothing, a Plunge Bra is designed to show off cleavage. They readily mold to the shape of the bust thanks to a deep center gore and cups that cut out on the edges.

Under low necklines, this bra disappears, giving the bust and cleavage a bigger impression. There are various variations, such as the Deep Plunge Bra, Multiway Plunge Bra, and so on, and you should choose one based on your bust type, dress, and, of course, your sense of style. 

Wear your daring plunge bra with a plunge neck jacket and pants combination, heels, and a bright lip.

11 Stick-On Bra:

Stick-On Bras are ideal for ensembles with a backless or sheer back. The Stick-On Bras have a delicate adhesive material along the cups and wings that adheres to your curves flawlessly. There are also silicone stick-on bras available that do not have side wings and are a good alternative. 

For your best friend's engagement party, wear your Stick-On Bra with a sheer back floor-length gown, pencil heels, and a statement necklace.

12 Underwired Bra:

Underwired Bras are perfect if you are voluptuous or seeking for a bra that gives superior support. These bras contain a wire stitched at the bottom of the cup to keep the bust from looking sagging while yet providing an attractive shape. The best underwired bras offer high-quality wires in a variety of styles that are ideal for everyday usage. 

For a business meeting, wear your Underwired Bra with a collared shirt, slacks, and heeled oxfords.

13 Maternity Bra:

Maternity Bras, also known as feeding bras, are specially designed to provide extra comfort and support during pregnancy. They have moulded cups of elastane fabric to accommodate changing breast shape and size. Nursing Bras are baby feeding bras with deliberately built cups with readily removable flaps that can be unhooked to facilitate safe breast-feeding after pregnancy. 

For a party, wear your Maternity Bra with a flowy floral dress and comfortable flats.

14 Minimiser Bra:

If you've been looking for a supportive bra for your heavy breasts, you've come to the right place. It's a godsend for women who want to disguise a huge bust under fitted outfits. These bras are designed to optically minimize chest projection and circumference by rearranging breast tissue and giving the impression of a smaller bust. They also provide additional support and shaping for a proportional appearance. 

For a family gathering, wear your Minimiser bra with a fitted kurta pyjama set. Your ensemble will be completed by chandbalis and embellished flats.

15 Transparent Strap Bra:

Want to wear a backless or strapless dress to a party but don't want to go completely strapless? Get your hands on a see-through bra. These are basic bras (with or without wires) with plastic straps on the shoulder and back, which make them ideal for outfits that reveal straps otherwise. 

Wear your Transparent Strap Bra with a skirt and a cowl neck strappy top. To finish the ensemble, add a matching handbag and slingbacks.

16 Cami Bra:

This Bra is the perfect combination of style and usefulness, with the coverage of a camisole and the support of a bra. High necklines and large cups on the camisole bra hide cleavage beneath deep neck garments. Some types are underwired and padded for a rounder lift, while others have detachable straps for versatility. 

For a day at the beach, wear your cami bra with high-waisted loose shorts and sneakers.

17 Long Line Bra: The Longline Bra is both stylish and functional, providing extended coverage from below the bust to a few inches above the belly button; some may even be dual-purpose and shape your waist. This bra is perfect for layering beneath everyday ensembles or even bridal wear because it has an extra-wide band that assists slimming and gives a sleek and attractive image. 

Wear your longline bra with blue denim and a pristine white shirt. This stylish style is completed flawlessly with kitten heels and a classic tote.

18 Cage Bra:

The Cage Bra is a padded bra with a multi-strap designer back and neckline that is meant to be flaunted! This bra is a generally loved style that is both sensual and supportive, making it ideal for low-cut and sheer-back clothing. 

Wear your cage bra with leggings that have a mesh lining. Add a leather jacket and boots to complete the look. This is the ultimate grungy look! 

19 Halter-Neck Bra: 

If you've been bothered by sliding bra straps, you'll want to get a halter neck bra as soon as possible! The straps of a halter- neck bra are designed to go around your neck rather than around your back. A long strap around your neck or two straps linked at the back of your neck are both options.

The halter-neck bra may be worn with a range of ensembles, especially backless dresses and shirts, thanks to its unique design. 

Wear your halter neck bra with a saree and a backless halter-neck blouse. Your look will be completed by a top knot hairstyle with big silver cuffs and heels. 

20 Bandeau Bra: 

Women who want to wear bandeau or tube gowns will love the bandeau bra. It's a stretchy cloth that's meant to hide your bust. Bandeau bras, unlike strapless bras, do not have hooks and can be worn by simply putting them on. They're great for ladies with smaller breasts because they don't have any padding, underwires, or structural cups. 

Wear your Bandeau Bra with a tube shirt and flared jeans to complete the look.
