The rule of thumb for your undergarments shopping? Get your basics down!
One of the most important kinds of shopping is shopping for your undergarments, where buying that perfect bra is a mission on its own. And why call it a ‘mission’? A, it needs proper planning, B, you need to have knowledge of your bras, and lastly, a little bit of patience for finding the right match. But most importantly, as was said by our teachers, understanding the basics is your answer.
A good-fitting bra is essential to all your wardrobes. So, here is our checklist on how to buy a perfect bra!
01 SIZING IS KEY
Every brand has its own sizes, so measurement is the key to finding the correct bra. Be very mindful of your correct cup and band size and try not to experiment with these.

02 WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?
Do you like bold or want to go for basics? Remember to always pick comfortable pieces, despite the varied styles and options available.
03 DETAILS ARE IMPORTANT
When choosing a bra, always look for all kinds of details such as the back closure, the metal clasps, the underwire, and more since you’ll essentially be wearing these for long hours.
04 FABRIC IS A PRIORITY
We’re not in the 1960’s anymore to be wearing only cotton bras. There is a lot of innovation in terms of fabrics that are breathable and relaxing. From 4 -way stretch cotton, polyamide to soft modal, see what works best!
05 CHOOSING YOUR CUPS
Seamless, padded, non-wired or minimizer, there’s plenty for each one of these styles. See what works best as per your needs and outfits, but always make sure that you wear the right cup sizes.
06 MATCH YOUR COLOURS
Go bold whenever and wherever you can but stick to your basics: white, nude, and black – a must-have for everyone.
07 CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Choose to hand-wash your lingerie whenever possible, without wringing or twisting the lingerie to remove excess water. Always use a mesh lingerie bag for machine wash. Buy and care for your bras as per the care instructions on your bras for a long-lasting journey together!
