Underwear is just as important as outerwear. Even if you can’t see it, the right bra can lift your mood (as well as your assets!) and make you feel great in whatever you’re wearing.
To help you to never make another bra-buying boob, we’ve put together a handy guide to the 3 Fs – function, fashion and fit. It’s time to throw out those uncomfortable, ill-fitting and unflattering bras, ladies, and fill your underwear drawer with bras you’ll love to wear!
Take some time to think about what you need from your bra, before you surround yourself with endless choices. Do you need an everyday bra that will create a smooth silhouette under clothes? Look at our comfortable t-shirt bras. Or maybe you want to create cleavage with a padded plunge bra? We’ve got bras for more specialist functions too – including nursing bras, sports bras and post surgery bras.
Getting the right fit on your bra is so important, and can make or break the look of an entire outfit. There’s no need to have yourself measured in a store if it makes you feel uncomfortable though. We’ve got a step by step guide and video on our website to help you find the perfect fit.
Remember that different styles of bra will fit best on different women. For example, if you’re a curvy girl you’ll need underwire and thicker straps for support. And moulded cups can cause problems with gaping or overspill. The golden rule is to always try your bra on before you buy – or leave on the tags so you can try in the comfort of your own home.
Different outfits call for different bras – strapless and multi-way bras will be best suited to some styles of clothing. If you’re buying a bra to wear with something in particular, make sure that you try it on with that actual item of clothing. You’ll also need to think about whether the colour and pattern of the bra will show through.
Finally, bra shopping should be enjoyable, so have fun choosing underwear that makes you feel good. Here at George we’ve got a whole wardrobe full of different styles in all colours of the rainbow – from lace lingerie to pretty prints and fresh, funky patterns.
Whether you want a practical bra for exercise or everyday wear, or something a little bit special to spice up your underwear collection, we’ve got brilliant bras for every outfit and occasion at George.
