The best shape-enhancing bras and how to care for them

From sexy push-ups to full-coverage bras you'll actually like, here are 16 of the best-fitting (and best-looking) bras to flatter your figure.

4 basic bra styles to know:

  1. Push-up bra: Angled cups that help lift and create cleavage. Look for foam or air-pocket padding if you want an extra bosom boost.
  2. Demi cup: An ultra-sexy fit that creates a full and round shape, this style is less about coverage and more about cleavage.
  3. Full coverage: This bra covers and supports the entire bust but doesn’t sacrifice comfort or style.
  4. Bralette: Designed for smaller busts, this comfortable option is low on support but makes up for it in fashion appeal.

How to launder your lingerie

The best option is to hand wash with a mild soap. If you can’t find time to hand wash, then toss your delicates in a lingerie bag and into the washing machine on a delicate cycle. Never, ever put your delicates in the dryer — simply lay flat to dry.
