A lot of times bra shopping isn’t nearly as fun as it should be. Even if you managed to get properly fitted and know the exact size you need, there’s still the matter of color, shape, and the clothing you plan to wear it with that can throw your whole bra game off. But don’t worry, we’re here to simplify the process for you. These days, we have tons of bra silhouettes to choose from, but when it comes down to it, you can really get away with just purchasing a few key types. If you’re bogged down by the options at your favorite lingerie boutique, here are the 3 simple bras you shouldn’t leave the shop without.

1. A Nude bra

At some point in style history, women needed a black bra to go with dark sheer tops, a white bra for see-through light colors, and maybe a beige/mocha color for in between. Thankfully, bra designers have jumped all over the nude trend right down to the underwear so that when we have on a barely there dress/shirt/tank our bras won’t look like they’re there either. If you’re having trouble finding your exact shade of nude, give myskins.com a browse.

    I hate bra shopping. My biggest problem is finding one that gives support AND is padded enough so my nippies won’t show through my top if it’s cold or whatnot. The brand sold by Lane Bryant works best for me even though I’m not full figured (14+).

    I only have colored bras b/c black and nude/black ones depress me. I do have one pair of convertible bra but I got rid of my push-ups b/c I was tired of hiking my boobs up to my neck; so now I wear something lightly padded and my B cups are good!!

  • What about a sports bra or comfortable bra? I think it’s imperative (especially for my DDs) that there’s an option that gives support in non-social situations. Or at least in moments where I’m not wearing revealing or tricky evening wear.

    You also need a backless bra, if you wear extra low back or backless tops/dresses.
