The breasts are a part of the body that has to be well taken care of to prevent issues like breast cancer and other diseases. One of the many ways to do that is to wear good bras. A bra, or brassiere, is a kind of women's lingeries and nightwear worn to support the breasts. They are worn for a great many reasons, some of which include women wanting to cover their breasts and keep their nipples from poking out when they wear any clothing. Also, wearing a bra could be attributed to the size of breasts because like earlier mentioned, the breasts need to be supported. Mostly, women wear bras to also give fitting to the upper part of the body.
There are different types of bras; maternity, sports bra and the rest. Some of them are explained in detail below.
• Full cup: this kind of bra is designed for all kinds of breast sizes, but is very suitable for women with heavy breasts, because it has a cup that covers the entire breast.
• Padded bras: these are made especially for women with small breasts. It has an inner lining that is padded to give volume to the breasts.
• Demi cup: these types of bras are also known as half cup bras because they cover only half of the breasts. They are perfect for clothes with low-cut necklines because they expose a huge part of the breast.
• Push up bras: these are designed to press the breasts up to create cleavage and are suitable for women with small breasts.
