Bra Style Guide

We’re often asked, ‘what type of bra is best?’. The honest answer is it depends on what you’re looking for! Our bra style guide is here to help you navigate your way through the different bra shapes and styles and arm you with the knowledge to know what to look for.

If you’re not sure about what bra styles might work well for you or if you have any other questions, we’d love to help. You can call us on 01926 459 859 (we’re open 7 days a week), chat to us via Live Chat or pop into one of our shops.

Did you know?

Not everyone's boobs 'fit the mould' so a seam-free style may not always work for you - however we do offer styles with barely-there seams for a smooth silhouette which are a great option for under T-shirts, too!

Did you know?

You are probably not 'one bra size'! Compare buying a bra with buying a pair of shoes - you might know what size generally feels good, but things like styles, shapes and brands can make a difference.

Did you know?

It's completely normal to have one boob bigger than the other. For most of us they are not identical - think of your boobs as sisters, rather than twins!

Did you know?

We offer a friendly, knowledgeable and free fitting service in our shops, over the phone, by email or via Live Chat on our website. We'd love to hear from you soon!

Other things to look out for when choosing a bra…

Stretch Lace

Stretch lace bras are great for those of us who have one boob bigger than the other (which is most of us!). They mould to your individual shape, so they work for Bravissimo girls with more or less volume or those of us who fluctuate in size during the month.

Side Sling

A side sling (or side support) is a panel at the side of your bra that pulls your boobs in for a forward-facing look.


Padded bras don’t necessarily add bulk – the padding is there to give a rounded shape and a smooth look (as well as an extra job of nipple coverage!).


Moulded bras = seam-free! Moulded bras are made from one piece of material which gives a smooth look under T-shirts and can be padded or non-padded.


Let us know! It’s important you feel comfortable in the bras you buy from us. If you wear a new bra and find it uncomfortable, or you’re not happy with it for any reason, please get in touch so we can help.
