bra styles

Everyone has that favorite bra they tend to reach for. You know, the one you default to whether you’re meeting the girls for a casual brunch, running errands, or hitting up that new tapas restaurant for a romantic date night. It’s the one that makes you feel like the best version of you. It’s the one that fits perfectly into your wardrobe. It’s the one that no matter what you buy, you always seem to go back to when you have to make a quick decision getting dressed for the day.

Did you know that go-to bra can say a lot about you? Just like your favorite book, movie, or food can be very telling, so can your favorite undergarments.

If you’re curious about what your top bra choice says about you, read on to find out.

Strapless bra

As a woman who frequently ditches the straps, you definitely don’t play by the rules. Adventurous and daring, you’re the first of your friends to try out a new fitness class, cuisine, fashion trend, or makeup look. Your spontaneity is what makes you stand out, and your trusty strapless bra allows you to be as bold with your style choices as you are with the rest of your life decisions.

T-shirt bra

Is there any undergarment more practical and comfortable than the T-shirt bra? It gives you support and coverage while also disappearing under even the thinnest most form-fitting knits. If you tend to go for a T-shirt bra, you’re likely a no-nonsense kind of gal. You’d rather order the same thing off the menu that you already know you love than take a risk on something new. You make thoughtful decisions, and would rather play it safe. That doesn’t mean you’re never daring — but you know what you like, and you stick to it. You value comfort and utility over anything else.

Push-up bra

If you have an idea, an opinion, or a feeling about something, you’re definitely not going to hold it in. After all, your go-to bra — the push-up bra — boldly puts your cleavage on display! Outspoken and outgoing, you’re always willing to speak your mind. That boldness may make you the life of the party or the leader of the pack. You don’t mind being in the spotlight, and you’re fabulous at making new friends. The confidence you ooze is impossible to ignore — in fact, some might say it’s downright irresistible.

The woman who tends to reach for this style is a problem solver, and luckily, a convertible bra can solve almost any style conundrum.

Racerback bra

Convenience is the name of the game for you. So it makes sense that you would opt for a racerback bra, which you can put on and take off super quickly and easily. Low-maintenance and pragmatic, you view the racerback bra as a style savior: it saves you time, which you can use for more important things!

Unlined bra

Who needs padding when you’re confident in your own skin? If you’re a big fan of the unlined bra, that means you’re probably pretty down to earth, and you prefer to flaunt what you’ve got than modify your natural shape. Whether you like to wear a lacy bralette or a sheer coverage bra, you’re the kind of woman who values comfort and isn’t afraid to be your completely authentic self.

Longline bra

Your wardrobe is filled with timeless staples — like little black dresses, nude heels, a denim jacket, and some sparkly stud earrings. So naturally, you would pick a classically chic undergarment, the longline bra. Just because you tend to stick with safe pieces doesn’t mean you’re not up on the latest trends, either. You always know what’s in, you just prefer classic elegance. Ultra-feminine and sophisticated yet also super supportive, the longline bra shows how you value function meets fashion.

So, did you learn a little something about yourself? Next time you’re picking out your bra, remember: it may offer some interesting insight into the kind of woman you are. And of course, there’s no shame in having a go-to style!
