When it comes to bra styles, we’re spoilt for choice. From push-up to balconette, the list goes on. But arguably one of the most essential bras to own is the t-shirt bra. Versatile and comfortable, t-shirt bras are suitable for everyday wear. This popular style of bra also works for everybody and breast shape out there! If you don’t own one yet, maybe it’s time to add one to your lingerie collection. Find out why below!

What is a t-shirt bra?

T-shirt bras are seamless, with smooth, moulded or slightly padded cups that provide a lovely natural, rounded shape under your clothes. Don’t be fooled by the name, t-shirt bras go with everything and give you a great foundation for any occasion. Available in a range of styles to suit your style, occasion and breast shape, t-shirt bras are universally flattering. From thinner lining for a more au-natural finish, to underwired, plunge or padded styles, t-shirt bras really are a lingerie must-have.

How should a t-shirt bra fit?

To get the best fit, choose a t-shirt bra with a snug band and cups that completely contain your breast tissue. Make sure you can fit at least two fingers between your skin and the band and two fingers between your skin and the strap. With that in mind, our handy guide details how to find your perfect fitting bra, whether you need to size up or down, our tips will make sure you never have an ill-fitting bra again.

Plunge t-shirt

If you are slightly shallower in your top cup a plunge style is the best t-shirt bra shape for you. This style will not only help gather everything up, but it will also gently encourage it towards the middle to give you a more cleavage look. Our Definitions Lace Plunge T-Shirt is super soft and gives you a great shape making it the perfect style to wear under a t-shirt. You’ll also be spoilt for size, as the Definitions Lace Plunge T-Shirt bra is available up to a H cup!

Balconette t-shirt

Perfect for most breast shapes, the balconette, t-shirt shape gives you the perfect silhouette under your favourite t-shirt. For comfort and all year-round support, we recommend the Romance Balconette T-Shirt Bra. Offering that same smooth look and rounded shape of a t-shirt bra, we’ve added just a touch of beautiful, swirling graphic lace to the cradle and centre front where it can’t be seen through our clothes. Balconette style bras are also a great choice for a more athletic breast shape because it will lift the volume of the breast from the base, giving you a more rounded, even look.

Push-up t-shirt

Our push-up t-shirt bras have extra padding to enhance your shape by lifting yet still supporting you. Looking for a push-up t-shirt? Look no further than our Forever Fiore Plunge Push Up T-Shirt Bra. Designed with a moulded microfibre cup with added lace detailing, this bra will give you both sexiness and comfort at the same time.
