Is a Bra Right for You? - The T-Shirt Bra

At Secret Drawers Lingerie we work hard to bring in the latest fashion styles and shades as well as traditional designs and colours to cover all your lingerie needs. And sometimes clients fall in love with a particular piece at first sight, but that doesn't always mean it's the the right bra for them.

The T-Shirt Bra

Recently, t-shirt bras have become very popular. T-shirt bras are typically seamless with a molded cup to create a smooth line across the breast so no seam shows through a thin shirt. These bras are not padded, per se, but their cup is molded into what the maker feels is the perfect breast shape.

The Good and the Bad About the T-Shirt Bra

That is both the good and the bad news. The good thing about a molded cup is the seamless look with enhanced curves; the unfortunate thing is it's harder to get a universal fit. That molded "perfect breast" doesn't necessarily suit every body type. A poorly-fitting cup can pucker and show bulges or dents in a silhouette.

Additionally, many of these bras are a demi-cup, which means there isn't full coverage of the breast. This design provides enhanced cleavage, but for some women this may make it more likely they will fall through the middle of the bra, which isn't really a good look for anyone.

The Good News

The good news is we have several t-shirt bras to choose from, and of course, many others as well. To look your best, the important thing to remember is a superb fit, even if it isn't perfectly seamless under your summer tank top. (See more lingerie tips here.)
