Is it Valentine’s Day? Was it Valentine’s Day? I wouldn’t know. What, you think he bought me some sexy red lingerie? A- ha-ha-ha-ha-ha. Sexy red lingerie translates as simply this: “Did you keep the receipt”.
Apart from silhouette, there’s only one thing a woman wants from a bra, and that’s comfort. Okay, we all have our Sex Bras – more on those later, if I feel like it, and don’t have a headache – but for everyday, it’s comfort that is key. A recent survey by Figleaves found that men are twice as likely to buy red lingerie as women (quelle surprise), and that nude lingerie is a turn-off. Some of my comfiest and best-loved bras are nude. Now that I know they are a turn-off, I shall bin them immediately, said no woman ever.
Comfort means different things to different women. For most, it’s a bra strap that doesn’t chafe, underwiring that doesn’t dig, and labels that don’t itch. Here follows some of the comfiest bras known to womankind. Will they get you laid? Who cares? They’ve got your back. And your boobs. And that’s what matters.
It’s a sports bra, but everyone needs the comfort of a sports bra, whether they do sport or not. Full coverage, padded straps, concealed wires, and a racerback converter that comes in red, navy or black
