The right bra can make all the difference in your outfit. A well-fitting bra blends with your outfit and lends adequate back and shoulder support, while letting you go about your routine with ease. Gone are the days when bras came only in dull shades of black and white. Now, you can glam up your lingerie just as much as the rest of your wardrobe.
Just as clothing styles keep changing every year, so do lingerie trends. Let’s take a look at five of the most common bra types that have been popular in 2020.
1. Wireless T-shirt bras
T-shirt bras are an essential part of any woman’s wardrobe. They come without seams, which means they fit snugly under your T-shirt or blouse without any lines showing. T-shirt bras have been traditionally fitted with wires; however, these days, the wireless varieties are all the rage. Bras without wires are definitely more comfortable and especially suited for long hours of wear. This is one lingerie style that seems here to stay.
2. Convertible bras
Convertible bras work just like the name suggests. You can wear the straps straight or stretch them across for a criss-cross look. Colorful straps are very much in right now and they look super stylish when paired with a tube top. Convertible bras can also work as strapless bras, but be warned—they do not offer the same amount of support as a true strapless bra.
3. Strapless bras
Every woman should own at least one strapless bra that she can turn to for wearing under an evening wear gown or party dress. Most strapless bras come with transparent straps so you can attach these in case you are not too sure about going strapless. Other variations of the strapless bra are bandeau bras and silicone bras, which also offer good support for sleeveless and tube dresses.
Minus hooks, bralettes are easy to wear and can be simply pulled over your head like a T-shirt. These can also be adjusted to fit your side. Bralettes are suited for any cup size. For women with a larger cup size, bralettes with underwires provide better support. Bralettes have been one of the most common bra types purchased by women in 2020 in a variety of materials, including lace and cotton.
5. Sports bras
Sports bras are no longer utility clothing meant merely for athletics. They have been for quite a while and continue to rule in 2020. This bra type is very common and now, even a style statement. Sports bras can be racerbacks, compression, and encapsulation types. Each of these can look super trendy when paired with a basic T-shirt or tank top. In fact, sports bras offering full coverage are often substituted for crop tops and worn for partying with high waist pants or a skirt.
These are the most common bra types that have featured heavily in the trends of 2020. Ultimately a bra is about comfort, so choose a style that makes you feel at ease.
