How Do You Wear a Bra?

How Do You Wear a Bra?

To wear a bra well, you need to find a bra that fits properly. Choose the right color and texture for the shirt you want to wear it with, and make sure to put the bra on correctly.

  1. Choose the right fit

    Ask for a lingerie sales associate to fit you for a bra. Bras are sized with letters and numbers; the letter denotes the cup size, and the number denotes the side of the band that fits around your ribs.

  2. Choose the right style and texture

    Bras come in many styles and textures. Choose the style that will fit the outfit you want to wear with your bra. For example, if you are planning on wearing a strapless dress, you should choose a strapless bra. Pay close attention to the texture of your bra. You don't want to wear a lacy bra underneath a smooth t-shirt, as the lace will look bumpy underneath your shirt.

  3. Affix the clasps on the band

    Wrap the bra around your waist, so the clasps are in the front. Affix the clasps, and turn the bra around so the affixed clasps are now in back of you.

  4. Pull on the straps

    Pull the straps up over your shoulders. Tighten or loosen the straps so that your bra is comfortably flush against your skin.

  5. Wear the right top

    Choose a top that looks good with your bra. Make sure your top is not too sheer and looks good over your bra. Wear white tops with white and flesh-toned bras. Wear darker tops over black or brightly colored bras.
