Carry on to learn about seven of the best bras you need to have in your lingerie drawer:

Sports bra

Just like running or hiking shoes, you need to choose the right one for the type of activity you are planning on doing. Not all sports bras were created equal, as some are for low impact activities such as yoga or Pilates and others are better suited for higher impact activities such as cross fit classes or jogging. Look for styles that are made from lightweight breathable fabrics with thick straps and a wide under band for extra support.

Bralettes are the hottest lingerie trend. Bralettes can either be a wirefree bra or have an underwire. However, often they don’t have a hook and eye closure in the back, so they’re easily slipped on over your head.

In the past, bralettes were avoided by those with a fuller chest but due to new innovative fabrics they provide support for all cup-sizes.
