4 bras that every adult woman needs to own
Allow us to argue the merits of a stand-up sports bra
There’s a shortlist of things that qualifies you to be an adult member of the female species. Managing your own finances? Yes. Being able to feed yourself (pasta made from scratch or Zomato on speed dial, we’re not judging)? Yes. Knowing your bra size and buying bras that actually do what they’re supposed to do? Hell, yes.
In case you’re stuck on this particular stage of adulting, fret not. The rescue team has arrived.
Marks & Spencer strapless bralette
Never underestimate the benefits of a bloody good strapless bra, one that doesn’t go all laissez-faire while you’re busting a dance move at your cousin’s sangeet within full view of every red-blooded male guest. Expert tip: When you’re shopping for a strapless bra, remove the straps in the trial room and boogie like no one’s watching. If there’s no spillage or sinkage, you’ve got yourself a keeper.
Marks & Spencer full cup bra
Wearing a lace bra under a fitted T-shirt is a rookie mistake, unless you consider unsightly lumps and bumps attractive. T-shirt bras usually come in cotton and offer complete coverage, to ensure your assets are well-supported and shapely.
Don’t even think about stepping into the gym or hitting the jogging track without the assistance of a built-to-last sports bra. Nobody deserves that kind of pain in their lives.
H&M microfibre and lace bodysuit
Whether you need a pick-me-up on a dull mid-week morning or looking to surprise your significant other just because, a little indulgence goes a long way.
