Did I just coin a new term?
1. Adhesive Bra (stick on bra)- Usually made of silicone, polyurethane, or similar material, they are attached to the underside of the breasts using medical-grade adhesive. Suitable for backless and strapless outerwear where a strapless bra is not possible or preferred, or as an alternative to going completely braless.
2. Athletic/Sports Bra- A bra that provides additional support to female breasts during physical exercise.
3. Demi-cup- A partial-cup bra style that covers from half to three-quarters of the breast and creates cleavage and uplift.
4. Full-cup- Designed to offer maximum support and coverage for the entire breast. Great for women with large boobs :)
5. T-shirt bra- Designed without raised seams, hooks, or other construction that can be seen under an outer garment. A contoured style that fits the breasts smoothly under tightly fitting T-shirts, sweaters, light-weight knitted fabric, or clingy tops with minimal visibility.
Honorable Mentions (Bras you really don't need but if you're a baller, buy them)
6. Push-up bra- A fashion bra that creates the appearance of increased cleavage.
7. Convertible- The bra straps can be detached and rearranged in different ways depending on the outer garment. Alternative strap arrangements include traditional over-the-shoulder, criss-cross, halter, strapless and one-shoulder.
For the ladies who are broke like me, you don't need to buy these all at once. While I do get re-measured and buy bras once a year (or so), you can buy yours once at a time. Also, consider cheaper lingerie stores...
May the lift be with you...get it? LOL!
