I am a firm believer in an expansive bra collection for different applications, therefore I have compiled my list for the top bra styles that every woman should own.
The key to success is fit. If it has been over a year since you have shopped for a bra, I recommend re-measuring yourself to make sure you're wearing the correct size. To expand upon your perfect fit, take your breast attributes into consideration. At HerRoom, I created the Know Your Breasts™ (KYB) Quiz to help women learn what features they should look for in a bra that are specific to their unique breast attributes. The bra suggestions at the end of the KYB Quiz are very carefully chosen from extensive research based upon your answers.
Let's meet the styles I know you'll use, all year long:
Everyday Underwire Bra
Wacoal Amazing Assets Back Smoothing T-Shirt Bra 853220
Goddess Keira Banded Underwire Bra GD6090
Underwire bras optimize your bust line while remaining comfortable and well-fitting. The support comes directly from the underwire itself. You need an underwire bra to look your best. Your breasts will be in the right place and will remain properly supported all at once in your everyday underwire bra. To keep these bras in good shape, you'll need three or more. You should not wear the same bra every day. If you do so, your bra will lose its shape quicker. After you wear a bra all day, you need to set it aside for about 48 hours to allow it to return to its original shape. Wearing the same bra day after day puts a lot of stress on the bra and doesn't allow it to spring back. Therefore, owning three at one time that you love equally will allow you to wear one, as one is left unworn and the third can be washed throughout the week.
Freya Idol Underwire T-Shirt Bra AA1050
Maidenform Comfort Devotion Embellished Demi Bra 9441
The need to own a T-shirt bra, otherwise known as a contour cup bra, comes from the seamless foam cups that give your breasts a flattering, pre-defined, rounded shape under form-fitting clothing. Your T-shirt bra can be one of your three underwire bras if you choose this to be a style you're in need of on a daily basis. The different foam types within T-shirt bras found on the market today are memory foam, firm foam and spacer foam. Memory foam gives a custom fit to the breast, which is best for uneven breast tissue. Firm foam is most supportive and spacer foam is special because it breathes and keeps you cool.
Panache Full-Busted Underwire Sports Bra 5021
Brooks Moving Comfort Fiona Medium Impact Sports Bra 350064
Beyond Yoga Sports Bras
For every type of exercise activity there is an associated impact level, and for every impact level there is a bra you should own to minimize painful breast bounce. For more detailed information on impact level, read HerRoom's blog post on finding your best sports bra here. The categories of sports bra breast containment are encapsulation and compression. It is these two factors that create the right sports bra for you. Compression refers to the bras that hold your breast tissue tightly against your rib cage and encapsulation refers to those bras that hold each breast separately within its own cup. The best sports bras combine the two to create better support and shape. Many women larger than a D(D1) cup often ask which sports bra type is best for them, and the answer is: a bra with the encapsulation and compression combination. This is because the volume of larger and fuller breasts require much more support, and those bras offering the combination can provide the most comfort and minimize bounce during an intense workout.
Elomi Matilda Underwire Plunge Bra EL8900
Maidenform One Fab Fit Original Tailored Demi T-Shirt Bra 7959
Every woman should own a plunge bra to allow her to wear lower cut tops with confidence and comfort. Plunge bras provide support and lift but are not optimal for women with deflated breasts and are best suited for women with fuller breasts. Push-up plunge bras are also great for creating cleavage for an extra boost of confidence. If you are accustomed to wearing lower necklines, a plunge bra would be a great choice to add to your daily underwire rotation.
Cake Lingerie Sugar Candy Seamless Everyday Full Busted Bra 28-8005
Natori Art Deco Underwire Bralette 714169
You should own a comfortable bralette to lounge in around the house. It is important to note that these bras offer moderate, comfortable support, and therefore are not an option for an everyday underwire bra. Their construction can differ from a sports bra silhouette to more constructed cups with seams and lace. Bralettes or leisure bras are ultimately the favorite among women, due to their high level of comfort. In the last couple of years, bralettes have emerged in fashion as decorative wardrobe transformers. See the b.tempt'd by Wacoal After Hours Bralette 959220 for a very youthful example.
Strapless Bras & Convertible Bras
Wacoal The Red Carpet Strapless Full-Busted Underwire Bra 854119
Goddess Adelaide Underwire Strapless Bra GD6663
Le Mystere The Perfect 10 Way Convertible Bra 2299
These bras are essential to expanding your wardrobe and meeting the needs of different garments. You should own the right strapless bra for your bust line and lifestyle to accommodate events you may attend throughout the year. On the market today, there are several different types of strapless and convertible bras. Those being: traditional strapless bras, full torso strapless longline bras, waist length longline strapless bras and multiple styles of convertible bras that can change your silhouette (all shown below). Consider the event you plan on wearing one of these bras to before purchasing to ensure you buy one that fits your needs. A few features I recommend looking for in any strapless bra are as follows:
Side boning for additional breast support.
Removable push-up padding, to help create the cleavage you wish.
A thick band for support and side smoothing.
Consider the cup height for your attire, which you can view exclusively at HerRoom for each bra using the "See it Under" feature.
Three or more hooks are a promising feature for larger cup sizes.
Seamless cups for an invisible look under clothes.
Long underwire for additional breast support.
An additional feature is silicone gripper tape to help gently stop slippage. Some bras that offer this are the Prima Donna Satin Strapless Bra and Lise Charmel Eprise Personal Beauty Convertible Strapless Bra.
Center Pull Strap Bra
Anita Rosa Faia Twin Seamless Comfort Underwire Bra 5490
Elila Microfiber Spacer Underwire Bra 2411
Center pull strap bras pull up and in at the strap, giving you more neckline options, like tank tops and v-necks, without putting strain on your trapezius muscle (near the base of your neck and shoulders), unlike traditional racerback bras. Center pull strap bras are a must-have because they are the most supportive bras due to their design of the straps attaching directly above the apex, or point of each breast.
Back and Side Smoothing Bras
Curvy Couture Flawless Lace Side Smoother Bra 1172
Wacoal Ultimate Side Smoother Seamless T-Shirt Bra 853281
Smoothing bras are one of the secrets to everyday confidence, as they help reduce side and back bulge for a more flattering silhouette in tight fitting clothing. These bras feature either tall sides or back panels lined with compression material to help secure you comfortably. The most important keyword to look for when shopping for these bras is powermesh. Powermesh is a specific type of fabric often used in lingerie, known for its compression capabilities. You can even find powermesh in swimwear, sports bras, leggings and shapewear, so you can hit the beach, gym or the office with smoothing confidence. Other features to look for if you are attracted to this style are higher sides, wider straps, leotard back styling and basically more body coverage. Additionally, any thin features on a bra will increase overall bulging. A smoothing bra can even become one of your daily bras, as many underwire bras have this fantastic feature as well.
Seamed Cup Bras
Fantasie Alex Underwire Bra with Side Support FL9152
Prima Donna Madison Full Cup Bra 016-2120
Glamorise Magic Lift Full Figure Wireless Support Bra 1000
Women with larger bust sizes (over a D cup) should without a doubt own a seamed cup bra. This is because seamed cup bras, also known as multi-part cup bras, will give you your best shape and support. Women with C cup sizes and larger will benefit from a seamed cup bra with support panels or slings - especially if their breasts are pendulous, are large or fall to the sides. In these cases, panels can lift, center and support your breasts for your best silhouette; the seaming in the cups gives the bra strength while remaining bulk-free and expressing a light look on the breasts. These bras were the original bras on the market before molded contour cups came along and are considered the most attractive. Seamed cup bras are a great choice for women of all bust sizes.
Feel Special Bras
Freya Fancies Underwire Plunge Bra AA1011
Fit Fully Yours Joyce See Thru-Lace Bra B2536
I feel that it is important for every woman to own a couple of "feel special" bras. It helps shake you out of the boring day-to-day routine and can give a boost of confidence by making you feel especially pretty and attractive. It doesn't hurt to complete a set with the matching panty and garter belt from time to time. You could even allocate one of your daily underwire bras as a special option for when you're feeling vivacious or if you need an extra push to take on the day! These bras are not only functional with supportive underwire and multi-part cups, but also have a gorgeous design to them that is sure to give you that confidence boost you're in need of some days.
There you have it, ladies - my ultimate list of bra styles every woman needs to ensure their best year in lingerie.
Around the web you'll find list after list regarding "bra mistakes," but they all have the same figurative bra commandments. We wanted to take this a step further and speak about issues real women are experiencing daily when it comes to bra mistakes, and then as your bra fit expert – offer real tried and true advice.
Let's get started:
Bra Mistake #1 You're Ignoring the Fit
We could drag this point out to the length of a book, or you could come to terms with the fact that your bra isn't fitting you. Examples: your straps are too loose; your cups are gapping or your band is digging in so tight that you can't breathe. Believe it or not, this is not how your everyday underwire bra should feel. Your bra should be comfortable to the point that you forget about it completely, if you're not at this point of Zen with your underwear – keep reading.

Please visit our bra fit center for 2-step measuring instructions, breast attribution information and more to find out just how your bra should fit here
. Stop living in the past and suffering – make better bra choices immediately.
Bra Mistake #2 You're Washing Your Bras Wrong
Most women are privy to the delicate cycle on the washing machine. The truth of the matter is that when it comes to washing your bras, the delicate cycle is not intended for every piece of lingerie you own. If you have found your perfect bra, treasure it. Please hand wash your lingerie. Some brands like Prima Donna specifically state, "hand wash only" for a very important reason: bras are and investment and you need to protect your assets.
The seaming, underwire, straps and beyond are all put together with purpose, so if/when you roughly wash or apply stress at the connecting seams, you are dancing on a fine line of destruction. Be very gentle, wash with cold water, with a mild detergent, avoid fabric softeners and hang to dry in a dry area.
Bra Mistake #3 Your Bra is Too Old
How old is the bra you're wearing? If you said anything over a year take it off and kindly replace it. Bras are meant to last around eight months with proper care.
Think about it – you're wearing a seamed piece of fabric directly against your body everyday with ever-so-often washing periods. If you wore the same three shirts over and over for a year straight, there would be obvious signs of destruction
. Same goes for your bras. The support will break down, the elastic will stop springing back and the fit will become uncomfortable. Replace your bras at least once a year
, but make sure you're remeasuring yourself before every purchase.
Bra Mistake #4 You're Wearing the Same Bra Everyday
This point comes as a shock to many women. You need at least three everyday underwire bras
to keep in rotation. One to wash, one to wear, and one to let rest or spring back, as we say here at HerRoom. Bras are made of elastic and as that elastic stretches you lose that great fit you fell in love with.
Bra Mistake #5 You Don't Have Enough Bras
Most women don't have enough bras. Aside from your minimum of three underwire bras you should own a strapless or at least a convertible bra
. What about when you engage in athletic activities? Are you covered there too? Take into consideration what you're wearing daily and make your bra collection conform to your needs
. Going on a date in a low-cut dress? You'll need a plunge bra
to accommodate that neckline. The bottom line is that we can guarantee that you don't have enough bras to make you feel confident enough to wear what you want, when you want, as we've stated previously not all bras work with every piece of clothing.
Bra Mistake #6 You Only Have White/Nude Colored Bras
This is a big mistake. Women have a belief that attractive, colorful and lacy bras that fit comfortably don't exist. We say otherwise – brands like Curvy Couture, Wacoal and Goddess have some of the most beautiful designs
, that work perfectly as an everyday bra. It's a big deal when you buy something pretty for yourself that works as a utility. It's a huge confidence boost
to look in the mirror and see the girls decorated to the nines for that Monday morning meeting. Do yourself a huge favor and pick something wild and thrilling
that fits like a glove.
Bra Mistake #7 You Don't Have Leisure Bras
Leisure bras are one of our favorite topics. We could talk for days about how amazing a lounge bra feels on our days off. Most women either know of the leisure bra too well, or know nothing of it's magic
. If you are one of those non-knowers, you're seriously missing out. Look at some of favorites here
and you'll see what makes them so great for lounging.
Bra Mistake #8 You Only Wear Push Up Bras
We've met countless women that only wear push-up bras. The reason usually deals with modesty or shaping
, but after closer inspection we usually find it deals with fit. Is your cup size on the smaller side? Are your breasts not filling your cups completely? Are you thinking that if you wear a padded bra that will help? If you said yes to all of these questions, you're not in the right size. Wearing a push-up bra is a great option for certain silhouettes and women with a certain breast attribution; but if you're only wearing one to try and give yourself a better fit, you need to remeasure yourself
, and get into the correct bra size.
Bra Mistake #9 You Refuse to Wear an Underwire
Many women think that underwire bras don't serve a real purpose and in turn they wear a wire-free bra every day. Those same women are unhappy with their silhouette
and complain about the support of their bra. Underwire bras keep your breast tissue in place, all day, therefore if you'd enjoy a more youthful bust line
, an underwire bra is your best friend. A shapeless bra will leave you shapeless as well. Learn more about lifting and sculpting bras
Bra Mistake #10 You Hate Your Bra
This is the most common mistake. We talked to a group of women recently and not a single person in that group had something positive to say about their bra. We knew exactly why; those women were making all the bra mistakes
above. After we educated the group on what fits them best and the different styles that are available, they were more than excited to start shopping
for a bra again. That's what it's all about for us, helping women every day to love their bra through our expert advice and educational videos. Are you one of those women who hate their bra? Message us anytime on Facebook here
will be able to answer your burning questions and even help curate a shopping list to get you back on the right track.
How many of the above mistakes are you currently making? We're going to guess more than two. You have the tools to remedy any of the above issues right here at HerRoom, so what are you waiting for?
