Sexy and sustainable
“I’d love a sexy bra in an eco-friendly, sustainable fabric. So many that I’ve seen look completely granola.” -Katharine Watts, Associate Web Editor
Luxe brand Huit’s “Huit is Biotiful” collection uses organic cotton jersey and crocheted lace trimmings that are hand-dyed with eco-friendly dyes. This underwire style has full moulded foam cups.
Huit Paris, Style #A7C, $96
Pretty nursing bra
“I’d like to find a pretty nursing bra that does its job while still making me feel attractive.” -Stephanie Han, Art Director (on mat leave)
A feminine floral print and lace band add style to this maternity bra. Underwire support and soft cups that unclip with ease keep it functional.
La Vie En Rose, Style #197-113-0-28, $36
“I’d like to find a cute bra that minimizes my bust-but that also lifts and separates, rather than just squashing me flat.” -Melissa Greer, Content Producer
Along with an embossed zebra print and cute rhinestone charm, this minimizer bra’s moulded cups are made from 3-D spacer material to comfortably shape the bust line and provide full coverage.
Wonderbra, Style #W7333, $42
A bit of a boost
“I’m a small cup size, and like bras with enough padding for a boost-but not so much that the cups are like football padding!” -Josephine Woertman, Acting Art Director
This bright seamless push-up is made with smooth “Memory Fit” padded cups for natural-looking lifting and shaping, and enhanced comfort.
Victoria’s Secret, Style #254-150, $54
Support and comfort
“I don’t want to have to think about my bra; just give me lots of support and a comfortable fit so I can forget I’m even wearing it.” -Ruth Hanley, Copy Chief
Soft moulded cups in embroidered mesh conform to one’s shape for a supportive fit. Satin banding around the underwire and along hems softens edges.
Additionelle, Style #829998, $50
Sexy and sophisticated
“I have a hard time finding smaller-sized bras that don’t have heaps of padding or look like training bras. I want a sexy, sophisticated style that fits my bust.” -Jennifer Masseau, Associate Editor
This sheer lace underwire with delicate picot trim and a plunging neckline is available from size 32B.
Calvin Klein, Style #F3535, $42
Feminine with high support
“I’m looking for a high-support bra with pretty, feminine details-nothing granny-style!” -Jennifer Walker, Deputy Editor

The perfect T-shirt bra
“I’m on the hunt for the perfect T-shirt bra that gives a smooth look both front and back.” -Bonnie Munday, Editor-in-Chief
