Oh the joys of womanhood! Bras, née brassieres, are an annoying necessity for all women (kind of like our menstrual cycle). Lucky for us, designs have come a long way from the clickable Bra-o-Matic of the fifties. Long evolved from the original constricting and pointy designs of yesteryear, bras today can do as little or as much as you please for your cleavage. Whether you prefer Wonderbra level push-up or barely-there support, here are our favorite options:
The Marie Jo Covertible T-Shirt Bra ($106) can be converted into several different configurations, courtesy of the chicest strap imaginable.
Not only does Chantelle Intimates Basic Invisble Memory Foam T-Shirt Bra ($72) provide smooth coverage for white T-shirts, but it gives some added oomph for us less-endowed ladies.
Instead of struggling to find a bra that works under tricky necklines or straps, look to a bralette like the Eberjey Collette Racer Bra Bralette ($58) that demands to be seen. Great for those see-through tees.
Do your bra straps seem to constantly fall off your shoulders? BeMe Rough & Tumble Lace Racer Bra ($47) keeps them in place, while still looking stylish thanks to feminine detailing.
If you’re still wearing that Nike sports bra from college that gives you uniboob, it’s time for an upgrade. The Alala Cross Front ($80) has a flattering v-cut, but the thick straps keep the girls in place even during a dance cardio class (no easy feat.)
For those days when you don’t want to get out of bed, but still have to go outside and wear a bra: Skin Tulle-Trimmed Organic Stretch-Pima Cotton Soft-Cup Bra ($75).
The Agent Provocateur Soirée Czarinah Sequined Tulle Underwire Bra ($590) is sexy in the sweetest way possible. Whether you or your man appreciates it more, well, that part is up to you!
