How to wear a bra?

Bras provide endless options for expressing your feminine. Different colors, texture and patterns will show different effects. In fact, most women wear bras in wrong size and wear inappropriate bra will be very uncomfortable.

Do you want to know more about bras? Hope the following precautions are helpful to the crossdressers .


1. DON’T ruin your bra in the wash

Bras are delicate objects, so they need to be properly cared for. You shouldn’t simply toss your bra in the wash with the rest of your clothes. Here are some tips to ensure that your bra stays in good shape for as long as possible:

Handwash your bra if possible. This is the best way to extend the life of your bra.

Use a bra wash bag. This keeps the hooks from snagging and prevents your bra from getting tangled in the washing machine.

Air dry your bra. Bras should never be put in the dryer, so hang them to dry instead.



2. DO choose the right style

While choosing the right bra size is important, so too is the style. The options are nearly endless! Some of the style details to consider include:

Padded vs. unpadded

Underwire vs. wireless

Cut of the bra cups (low cut, full cut, balconette, etc.)

Front clasp vs. back clasp

Straps (strapless, racerback, convertible, etc.)

Fabric (cotton, satin, lace, etc.)

Color

Which style is best depends on what you’ll be wearing, as well as your natural breast shape and body type. 


3. DO wear the right size

Did you know that there’s an 80% chance you’re wearing the wrong size bra? A bra that doesn’t fit right is uncomfortable and unflattering. Who needs that?

Bra sizing is complicated. I suggest getting professionally fitted if at all possible.


4. DON’T let back bulge ruin your look

One of the dreaded side effects of wearing a bra is back bulge. This is especially common if you carry extra weight in your upper body. Here are 3 tips for beating back bulge:

Wear a larger band size. A band that’s too tight will cause bulging, so go up a size. For example, from a size 42 to a size 44 band.

Look for a bra with extra stretch. Bras made with smooth, stretchy fabrics don’t dig in as much as stiffer bras.

Try a longline bra. Longline bras have a wider band that extends down the torso to help eliminate back bulge.


5. DON’T be boring

While you should definitely own some basic bras, why stop there? Bras offer endless options for expressing your style, so have fun and experiment with different colors, fabrics, and trimmings! (Just be careful what you wear them with as frilly details can show though clothes.)



6. DO replace your bra when it’s time

If you take care of your bra, it should last a good while. However, keep in mind that bras do have a limited life span. (Expect an  average of 6-12 months if you wear it regularly.) Here are signs that your bra needs to be replaced:

The bra straps are stretched out.

The bra no longer fits as well as it used to.

The bra has lost its shape.

The bra feels uncomfortable.


Different styles of bras can match different clothes, please enjoy the beauty of that.
