At Panache, we know the value of a great bra, whatever the occasion. In a new series on our blog, we’ll be looking at the importance of wearing great bras and the changes it can have on your silhouette, posture, and even how you feel!
First, it’s the t-shirt bra – or your great, everyday bra.
Wearing a good bra every day is important, not just for how you look, but for your body. Wearing an improperly fitting bra can be uncomfortable for your breasts and back, as if your bust doesn’t have enough support, you’ll find yourself with poor posture and aching muscles.
If you’re not sure how to measure bra size, or if you’re looking for a bra fitting guide, make sure you try our Bra Fit Challenge that will help you diagnose the problem yourself. But going to a proper bra fitter is very important too, as they’ll be able to immediately spot where the problems are with your bra. You might find that the underwiring or straps dig in, or that the cups are gaping away from your breasts – whatever the problem, a professional fitter will be able to advise you on the correct bra size.
But back to the everyday bra: a good t-shirt bra or moulded cup bra is an essential component of your wardrobe. Comfortable to wear, the t-shirt bra provides you with a smooth silhouette under casual outfits, work wear and – of course – t-shirts! They also provide unrivalled support, meaning that your bust and back is fully held in a comfortable position all day.
We recommend purchasing a flesh-coloured everyday t-shirt bra, as even white bras can show through white t-shirts! Nude bras don’t show through any type of t-shirt or blouse, and are much more versatile than just a white or black bra. For your everyday bra, avoid anything with lace, ribbon or embroidered details and instead opt for a smooth, moulded cup like our Panache Superbra.
A perfectly-fitted, great all-round everyday t-shirt bra is an essential part of any woman’s underwear wardrobe, giving you confidence and support even on those days when you’re in a t-shirt and jeans. Make sure yours is fitted properly and it’ll make a world of difference!
