Did you know that the history of bras dates back to the Ancient Greeks and Romans? Women used cloth or leather to bind their breasts for support.
Fast forward to today and there are many types of bras available in all sizes, styles, and colors. One of the more popular types is the lace bra because they can look feminine and sexy.
But there are so many types of lace bras available that it can be difficult to know which to choose. Don’t sweat! These lace bra tips will help you pick the best undergarment for your assets so you will look and feel sexy.
1. Choose the Right Lace Bra Size
Many women do not wear the correct size bra. So before you buy a new one, a lace bra or otherwise, you need to check you are wearing the right size.
You can measure yourself at home. Take off your bra, grab a tape measure, and measure (in inches) around your upper back where your bra strap sits. The tape should be snug but not too tight.
If the tape measure lands on an even number, that’s your band size. If it’s an odd number, round up.
Next, measure around the fullest part of your bust. Subtract your band size from your bust size. Using the answer, this is your cup size:
• 0 – AA
• 1 – A
• 2 – B
• 3 – C
• 4 – D
• 5 – DD
• 6 – F
• 7 – FF
2. Pick the Right Lace Bra Style And Color
When choosing a style of lace bra, you need to ask yourself some questions to choose the right one for your needs. These are:
• Padded or non-padded?
• Front open or back open?
• Underwired or no wire?
• Straps, convertible straps, or strapless?
• Balconette, halter, bralette, plunge or tube style?
Next, decide whether you want a leisure bra or a lingerie bra. Lingerie bras tend to be for special occasions and leisure bras are for every day. This page on lace leisure bra styles will explain more because, yes, lace bras can be comfortable too!
The right color bra will depend on the clothes you like to wear. If you wear a lot of white, then consider buying a white or skin tone lace bra.
3. Find the Right Matching Sets
Part of the fun of buying lace bras is investing in matching sets. Most stores will sell matching thongs and panties with the same bra lace. They might also sell garters and suspenders too.
If they don’t, choose panties in the same color with a similar lace pattern. Only you’ll know they don’t match!
