5 Types of Bras Every Girl Needs To Know About

A girl’s bra today comes in several variants, styles, and designs to suit every dress and occasion. There is the schoolgirl bra which is the beginner bra meant for young girls with developing breasts that need support and cushioning and then are bras that make a woman look gorgeous. We have here 5 bras that are a must in every girl’s lingerie closet.

Push-up Bra

A gentle nudge to lift your breasts, padding that gives your breasts a seamless look and lots of extra support that comes with the underwire: all this and much more in terms of a gorgeous cleavage is what a push-up bra gives to you. The push bra in a balconette style is perfect for a square neck dress and a plunge push-up bra is what you need for a low neckline dress.

Transparent Bra

The transparent bra is a wider term used for all the bras that give you the convenience of wearing low-back and off-shoulder dresses without the bra straps showing. These bras come with transparent shoulder and back straps that are almost invisible. Non-padded lace bras are also transparent bras because of the sheer fabric of the cups. The skin-colored stick-on silicone bras are transparent bras without any straps for all those fashion-savvy girls who do not shy from trying out new things.

T-shirt Bra

The t-shirt bra is called so because it has seamless cups, making it the perfect bra to be worn under a t-shirt. But a t-shirt is just one of the things that you can wear a t-shirt bra with. You can wear this bra under any sheer or light clothing. All t-shirt bras are padded and give a smooth and rounded shape to the breasts so there is no risk of a nip-slip happening with these bras. T-shirt bras are super comfortable to wear and can be your everyday bra under dresses and tops.


The bralette bra is the hot favorite of all girls for the simple reason that it is a no-fuss bra. There is no hassle of the hook and eye closure and you can wear it easily by slipping it on. It looks super chic in its lacy avatar and doubles up as a crop top when you wear it under a sheer shirt, jacket or a shrug to give a casual look. The longline bralette with extra lace detailing is the sexier cousin of this glam bra style. These bras are ideal for women with small and medium-sized breasts as they do not need the extra support of the underwire missing in a bralette that does not have structured separate cups.

Sports Bra

Now, this is the kind of bra which is a must in every girl's lingerie closet. If you are actively involved in any kind of sports, a sports bra will be your knight in shining armor, protecting your breasts during workouts and strenuous activities. A sports bra gives you zero spillage with full coverage and extra support. Strategically placed mesh panels, cut-outs, and moisture-wicking fabric keep your sweat stains at bay, letting your breasts breathe. Sports bras generally come in two variants: compression and encapsulation bras. The compression type sports bra compresses down the breasts giving a uni-boob look and is perfect for girls who follow a rigorous exercise or sports regimen. Encapsulation bra has separate cups like a regular bra and is for girls with less intense lifestyle.

Armed with all the info you need about the different kinds of bras, its time you do some bra shopping to try out all of these styles and look stunning in whatever you wear.
