Shapes and styles

Did you know that there are other styles than a deep plunge bra and a t-shirt bra?

When buying lingerie it’s not only the size that matters.

There are many different shapes and not every shape suits every breast type or every occasion. Are you looking for an everyday bra or a bra for a special occasion? Do you have an active job that keeps you on the move all day long or do you spend your days behind a desk? Are you looking for a bra that shows your cleavage or do you prefer one that covers the breasts entirely?

Let’s go through the choices:
