Lessons on Bras for Babes: Finding the Perfect Bra
Finding the perfect bra is no easy task. It takes a lot of time and patience to find that one, awesome bra that will fit you just right. Once you find it, don’t be afraid to do your research on the brand before buying, for example, Prima Donna Bras, because there are so many options out there! In this blog post, I’ll share 5 tips for finding the perfect bra, as well as some great resources for bras in general.
The history of lingerie
Before getting into the tips, it’s important to know some history behind bras. The first bra was invented in 1913 by Mary Phelps Jacobs, who patented her design for a “backless brassiere” which she had been wearing under her clothing for more than ten years! It took another 30 years before anyone else began patenting their designs for bras. Bras continued to evolve and change over the years, with different materials, styles, and purposes.
5 tips for finding the perfect bra
Today, there are so many types of bras available that it can be hard to know where to start when looking for one. Here are my top five tips for finding the perfect bra:
Tip #01: Know your measurements!
Tip #02: Go up a band size & down a cup size.
In order to find your perfect bra, it’s influential that you know the correct measurements for yourself, so you can effectively search through the many options available! If I’m just starting out on my quest for bras, I always check out Herroom and Bravissimo for their bra size calculators, which help to determine your correct measurements.
Once you have your measurements, it’s time to start trying on bras! I usually find that going up a band size and down a cup size works best for me. For example, if my bust measures at 36 inches, I would try a 38 band size and a 34 cup size. This is not true for everyone, so it’s important to keep trying on different bras until you find the perfect fit.
Tip #03: The band should be snug, but not too tight .
The band of your bra should be snug, but not so tight that it cuts into your skin or makes it difficult to breathe. The band should be parallel to the floor and should not ride up your back at all.
Tip #04: The cups should fit comfortably .
The cups of your bra should completely cover your breasts without spilling over or gaping. They should also be comfortable, not too tight or too loose.
Tip #05: straps shouldn’t dig into your shoulders.
Your bra straps should stay in place and not dig into your shoulders or slip off completely, causing discomfort throughout the day. If you find that you’re constantly adjusting your straps when wearing a particular bra, it’s probably time to try another one!
The 3 styles of bras every woman should have in her lingerie drawer
Every woman should have three different types of bras in her lingerie drawer: a strapless bra, a t-shirt bra, and an everyday push up.
These styles are great for any occasion! A strapless bra is perfect to wear under anything low cut or backless. This style can also be incredibly helpful when wearing something that doesn’t have a built in bra, such as a bralette or anything made from thin material.
A t-shirt style bra works best under clothes that are fitted and smooth on the outside so your silhouette can’t be seen underneath them, preventing any awkward nipple pops! This is also great for women who want to wear something low cut but don’t want to worry about their bra showing through.
Finally, an everyday push up is great for any occasion since it adds cleavage and enhances the bust without being too noticeable underneath clothes. It’s also a good idea to have one of these in your drawer if you ever need to wear something low cut!
