A Bra for Every Body!

By

Whether you're just starting out with your first bra or have been wearing them for years, you know that it's tough to find the perfect fit for your unique shape. Here are my favorite lingerie picks for every sort of body type and wardrobe need!

Before You Buy: Size Me Up Bra Sizing System, $5.99

Studies say that up to 80% of ladies are wearing the wrong size undergarment all together, so it's a great idea to get professionally fitted by a bra specialist before you purchase anything. If the idea of having a stranger touch you isn't so much fun, you can also try the Size Me Up bra sizing system, which is an easy-to-use measurement chart.

First Try: Maidenform "One Fabulous Fit Underwire Teen Bra" in Heart Print, $11

If you're new to the bra scene, this style with stretch foam cups is a great place to start. It also has adjustable straps and a touch of Spandex for a terrific fit on the body.

Smaller Size: Wacoal "Petites Seamless Mesh Contour Bra" in Naturally Nude, $22

This style has cups that are positioned closer together and shorter straps than an average bra, so it's more comfortable for a smaller frame.

Fab With T-Shirts: Felina "Bra of the Year" in Fawn, $38

A style named the 'Bra of the Year' has to be great, right? This lightweight number is made of super-fine fabric that lets skin breathe, and is slightly padded to give great shape under even your closest-fitting tees.

Strapless: The Natural "Clearly Natural Strapless Underwire Bra" in Natural, $46

An amazing all-in-one style, this bra has a transparent back as well as a detachable clear halter strap to give you all sorts of versatility. You can wear this under practically any party dress!

Fuller Figured: Goddess "Emma Underwire Bra" in Midnight Rose, $54

Fuller-cup bras don't have to be boring, as this pretty embroidered style shows! This one has a supportive underwire, adjustable cushioned straps – and it's available up to a 48-inch back band and a J cup!

Bigger Cup Size: Fantasie "Belle Balcony Bra" in Bamboo, $65

If you are small around the chest but have a bigger cup size it's been next to impossible to find a pretty bra that actually fits – until now! This embellished underwire style goes up to FF in cup size, even if you wear a back band as small as 32 inches.
