Bra Fashion

Choosing a bra style is a personal decision for a woman. But since there are so many bra styles available, it can also become a mind boggling decision. To help you choose the bra that’s right for you, you need to consider a few things: style, comfort, and price. By deciding which of these features is the most important to you, you will begin to find styles that are appropriate for your body and your life.

Fit to Perfection

We don’t all the chutzpah to sport conical bras like Madonna did in her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t be stylish on the inside. And what a double bonus it is when lingerie not only looks good but feels good as well? Well, that’s the philosophy behind La Senza’s new SO FREE FIT FOR YOU bra collection.

With 3 fabulous styles: the Classic, Balconnet and the Shaper, the collection is truly an example of the fascinating advancement in bra technology.

Every bra is customised for each cup size, with the emphasis placed on comfort. Comfort is further enhanced through the lining of the bra. Even the bra straps aren’t spared. For those who are blessed with generous bosoms (D, DD & E cup size), La Senza throws in a structured under-band for added support and comfort. How thoughtful.

But comfortable doesn’t have to mean boring. This bra collection incorporates cool prints, lace trims, hip colours and textures to spice up everyday dressing. Feeling flirty today? Why not go with bra straps hemmed with lace? In the artsy-fartsy mood? Then go creative with prints.

Style is the first consideration in a bra style. If you go into any lingerie store or browse any lingerie retailer, you will find a number of different bra styles listed. Some of these include: demi bras, under wire bras, a balcony style bra, full coverage bras, strapless bras, etc. The styles of the bras can also include certain detailing, like lace, silk, padding, and leather. Depending on the outfit you are wearing and how much of the bra might show, you may want to choose something that’s more elaborate, while with other outfits, you may want to choose something that will not show up at all. You can also choose some bra styles that will only be appropriate for private times with your spouse or partner.

Party like a rockstar

If you’re the sort who loves glamour, drama and lights, Lola & Coco by La Senza is your perfect choice. The collection is packed to the brim with edginess, cheekiness and a whole lot of punk and rock.

La Senza jazzes up their bras with studs, ribbons, and funky prints, ranging from zebra stripes to leopard spots to stencils. Boxers, g-strings and camisoles from Lola & Coco are splashed with cheeky messages, with slogans such as “Let’s party like a rockstar!” and “Lola rocks!” screaming out at you, or whoever you care to show your undergarments to.

So now you know, you don’t have to unleash your inner punk-rock self only when you put on your iPod headphones; the Lola & Coco by La Senza collection too allows you to indulge in some rock-lovin’ with a whole lot of punk-ass style.

Comfort is a major consideration in bra styles you will wear everyday. When choosing a bra, comfortable style details like soft fabrics, adjustable straps and varying enclosures will help you forget that you’re even wearing the bra in the first place. You can also find some bras that will help add to your comfort during high activity periods – exercise, for example. A sports bra with a high factor of support will make your breasts stay in place as you move, making breathing and moving all the more comfortable.


Embrace this season’s hottest trends such as tights and leather jackets by incorporating them into your daily look. Pair a patterned or printed bra with a camisole, allowing your bra to peek out teasingly. Over this, layer on a leather jacket for a chic yet flirty look. If you have a bra that is hemmed with frills, do the same, allowing the tip of it to peek out from under a tunic. For those who shy away from revealing too much skin, tights are the way to go, and they add a dash of colour to your outfit too.


If you don’t have the slightest idea what boylegs are, think shorts. The mini version. Boylegs are good for sheer bottoms or tight-fitting jeans, since they are seamless. Say aye to no more unsightly visible panty lines! But what about my g-string, you protest. Unfortunately, it’s no longer “hip” to show to the entire world, regardless of how sexy you think it is.

The price of bra styles will depend on the intricacy of the bra’s design as well as the name of the manufacturer. Some styles like a Vanity Fair bra style or a Bali bra style can be very cost effective, while others like Perla can be too rich for some tastes. If you’re interested in saving some money, you might want to look for soon to be discontinued Bali bra styles as they are good for most kinds of woman’s breasts, without being too expensive. Of course, if you really like the style, you may want to buy more than one as they will not be around in the future.
