Bras for Every Occasion: Choosing The Best Bra for Your Outfit

Underwire, push-up, bralette, t-shirt, lounge bras…there are so many different kinds of bras to choose from which can make deciding which bra to wear with which outfit quite the headache. BRABAR believes that whatever your style or cup size, you should feel comfortable and completely confident throughout your day. Choosing the right bra is a great first step in letting your confidence shine through. If you've been wondering "what type of bra should I wear?" you've come to the right place. We're here to help you choose the perfect bra for any occasion!

Different Types Of Bras (And When To Wear Them)

With so many options, it's no wonder young girls are confused about what type of bras they should wear for certain occasions. BRABAR is here to clear the air and tell you everything you need to know about what occasion every kind of bra is best for.

Training Bras

Training bras keep a young girl's changing body in mind. Soft, minimal cushioning gives just enough support for a first-time bra wearer without being too uncomfortable. With that in mind, training bras are also an excellent option for girls and women with larger chests who want more relaxed support. Training bras like our Soft V Crop Bra are ultra-comfy for everyday wear, allowing younger girls to grow and change with confidence. 

Loved by petite and busty girls alike are our HUG halter bras. Each of our halter bras are designed with a teen girl in mind, possessing a supportive, wire-free, junior fit.

Our online store gives you an abundance of choices regarding halter bras. These choices include size, shape, and design to deliver the best comfort and functionality combination a wireless halter bra can provide.

Our HUG Strappy Halter Bra is a comfortable halter with a low-open back and five straps running down the center. It's a modern take on an old design, perfect for teens in low to medium-impact activities. This halter bralette can be slipped on overhead and rests against the back of the neck. It's comfortable but flexible, thanks to the stretchy microfiber, providing support while remaining lightweight.

Bundles are always a good deal, especially when you get three halter bras in a single package. Our HUG Lace Halter Bralettes bundle comes with three comfortable lace neck halters in black, ivory, and gray. Teens belove the cute three-strap back design and goes on over the head and behind the neck. It's excellent when used as active wear during low to medium-impact activities and just about any other daily routine.

Like the HUG lace halter bralette, our halter bras for teenagers offer full coverage for petite girls with full busts. The wire-free halter will be so comfortable that you'll forget you're wearing one at all!


T-Shirt Bras 

T-Shirt bras are specially made to fit snugly beneath t-shirts and other casual apparel. They're seamless in the cups, so they won't poke through your clothes, and the elastic material will mold to your body. T-shirt bras are perfect for everyday use because of the sleek and undetectable contour they give beneath clothing. Our Soft Day Bra is our own interpretation of the best t-shirt bra. This comfortable and discreet bra looks great under t-shirts, sweaters, and other clothing. They also make great bras for dresses, making them one of our most versatile designs.

Lounge Bras

Lounge bras, sometimes called leisure bras, are a style of supportive bras created with complete comfort and relaxation in mind. Lounge bras are great for relaxing at home, doing low-impact exercise, or running casual errands. Lounge bras throw rigid construction out the window, leaving you with a soft yet supportive feel. Some girls may also enjoy more relaxed construction in their day-to-day activities.

Sports Bras

As the name implies, sports bras are meant to keep your ladies in place while you run, jump, and stretch. Sports bras are typically made from moisture-wicking fabrics to keep you dry and comfortable and also feature larger straps and more supportive bands to prevent discomfort during movement. 

Sports bras look great under tank tops but can also be worn on their own with a cute pair of workout leggings, sweats, or biker shorts. The Hug Strappy Halter Bra lets you look incredibly cute while providing support for low to medium-impact exercise.

Push Up Bras

For ladies looking for an extra confidence boost, a push-up bra might be the way to go. Push-up bras usually include extra padding or inserts in the cups to give you a more defined look. If you're looking for bras for dresses, a push-up bra gives you a feminine, confident edge that will help you look and feel stunning. Our Soft Longline Strapless Bra Top is an great option for women and girls who want the incredible look of a push-up bra without discomfort. The strapless design is double-lined and wire-free, making it the perfect seamless solution for support underneath strappy or strapless dresses.


Bralettes are a type of wire-free, non-padded bra made from a variety of stretchy, airy, and comfortable fabrics like lace or mesh. They can range from triangular to balconette in a cup shape and often have lacy accents, thin straps, or even bows. Bralettes give you the best of both worlds–they're cute and incredibly comfortable, making an adorable accent to your outfit and for lounging around the house. Our Hug Lace Halter Bralette features beautiful lace detail and a strappy racerback, making it perfect to be worn on its own or underneath your clothing. 

Choosing the Right Color

When asking yourself, "what type of bra should I wear?" remember, above all, you should feel confident and comfortable in whatever you choose. However, you may wonder how to pick the right color to wear.

Black, White, or Nude?

A black bra is the perfect way to blend in if you typically go for darker-colored clothing like black or blue. The bra lines and straps will be virtually unnoticeable, giving you a put-together appearance. On the other hand, if you're wearing a light color, go for a white bra for the same effect. However, go nude if you're wearing white or another sheer color. A nude bra will blend in with your skin tone, giving a more natural illusion.

Go For Color

Bras with bold colors or patterns are a fun, secret way to express your personality, usually going unnoticed under heavy fabrics such as knits or thick cotton. However, you can also opt for a bright color when you want to add a touch of unique style to your outfit! Our Soft Cami Bra Tops are uniquely tie-dyed because there's no one else like you. This staple piece is perfect to wear on its own in the summer or for lounging, or you can wear it underneath a cardigan or other tank top for a hint of color and fun.
