Shopping for a new bra can be overwhelming, to say the least. There are thousands of options out there, and finding the one that's just right for you and your body type is no easy feat. To help you find the best choices, we went on a mission to uncover the types of bras worth investing in. We came up with nine different categories, from a push-up bra to a useful strapless bra and even some sexy choices, like a balconette bra or a see through bra. Plus, there's the t-shirt bra you're going to wear every single day, the multiway bra that's so essential, and the underwire bra that will keep you supported. Keep reading for more information on how to wear them and when to replace them, and shop all our top picks and add the ones you love most to your shopping cart.
