    1. A hardy sports bra

    A definite must for all athletic ventures, whether you're in gym class or training for a 10k. Get one that is comfortably snug but not cutting-off-your-circulation tight for best results.

    2. A pretty bralette

    TBH, these don't provide a *ton* of support, making them perfect for small-busted sweeties on the day-to-day. Even if your bust is a little bigger, they're still super nice for lounging around the house or just feeling fancy and feminine.

    3. A solid strapless bra

    Perf for halter tops and Homecoming dresses. We know, we know, they’re kind of a pain in the neck—but you'll need one around if you don’t want your bra straps to show in shoulder-baring clothes.

    4. A convertible bra

    This is a bra that transforms from a standard fit to a racerback to a strapless (and sometimes even more than that!). Super convenient for ladies with a diverse wardrobe.

    5. A classic t-shirt bra

    These soft, supportive bras are generally made out of soft material that won't itch or stab your ribs and are perfect for everyday wear.
