|If there's one bra every woman should have in her lingerie drawer, it's the t-shirt bra. This hard-working garment is virtually invisible under almost any piece of clothing, whether winter cashmere sweaters or tissue-thin cotton tees. One thing almost all tee shirt bras have in common is a contour cup. Contour cups hold their shape and are usually gently padded for both silhouette and modesty. The cups will also be seamless, and some bras have seamless sides and back as well, which is great for an all-around smooth look. Aside from their smooth finish, tee-shirts bras come in a variety of styles. Women with smaller breasts might prefer padded or push-up styles, for enhancement and lift. There are soft-cup styles for women who prefer not wearing an underwire bra. These often have wide underbands for stability and support. In larger sizes, styles will have underwires and often powernet sides and back or side support slings, so you get all the benefits of a smooth bra while still getting the support you need. |
There are a variety of cup styles as well, including full-coverage, plunge bras, strapless bras, push-up and demi-cups, front-close bras and many more. One of the recent innovations in t-shirt bras is the use of spacer foam. This material has air between a top and bottom layer that makes for an ultra-light, breathable bra. Even in large sizes, spacer foam bras are surprisingly light and comfortable.
