Which Type of Bra is Best for Daily Use?

Bras for Everyday

“So many options but which bra is best for daily use?” This question probably crosses your mind every morning when you’re getting dressed for work or getting ready to run a few errands. While we have come to a universal consensus that wearing a bra everyday is kinda sorta necessary, It’s also important to choose the right kind of bra for everyday use.

While a strapless lacy number might be cute for date night it doesn't take long for it to turn into a nightmare when it comes to work and daily use. Now, whether you have a long day ahead of you or a chill day at home, there’s a bra out there that’s just perfect for you.

Wearing a comfortable bra every day will elevate your mood, ease your tasks for the day and in general be a great ‘support’ to you.

There are so many different types of bras out there and getting confused is natural, so we’ve put together a list of bras that you must have in your wardrobe. You never know which one might come in handy when depending on what your OOTD is.

All Day Everyday Bra

T-Shirt Bras

T-Shirt Bras SHOP: T-Shirt Bras

Everybody’s favourite style and correctly so! These bras come with seamless and moulded cups, that provide a smooth, invisible look, which makes this bra an ideal choice for everyday wear. This is one versatile style which is a must-have for your wardrobe.

amante’s T-shirt bras come with a unique ultra-light 2MM padding, which contours and accentuates your figure like no other bra.

Spare me the Extras

Non-Padded Bras

Non-Padded Bras SHOP: Non-Padded Bras

Non-padded bras don’t come with additional padding in the cups. The cups are simple in form and come with 2 or more layers of fabric. Women with fuller breasts may often be seen opting for non-padded bras. Without the padding, you might feel that the bra is not overly accentuating your breasts but is also providing you the right amount of support you need.

Fashionably Stylish


Bralettes SHOP: Bralettes
The most relaxed style ever! Bralettes are the perfect choice if you feel like lounging around at home and sometimes they even make for really stylish outerwear as well. Available in a wide range of colours and fabrics, bralettes look great when worn under sheer ensembles, blazers, and tops with plunging necklines, or can even be worn on their own with a chic pair of pants of palazzos.

Break a Sweat

Sports Bras

Sports BrasSHOP: Sports Bras

Since working out is almost a part of your everyday routine, sports bras make an appearance in this list too! Breast movement during exercise can cause discomfort because breasts are not used to such high-intensity movement and that is when the sports bra comes to the rescue. You can even slip into one when you’re out and about running errands.

Take the Plunge

Plunge Bras

Plunge BrasSHOP: Plunge Bras

When you’re in the mood for something adventurous like a deep neck top, taking the ‘plunge’ is a great idea. Plunge bras are low cut at the centre and offer less coverage (but perfect support!) When you’re wearing something with a deep neck, these bras provide a rounded look, and create the illusion of a deep V shape which really makes the most of your fabulous cleavage.

Lift your Spirits

Push-Up Bras

Push Up BrasSHOP: Push-Up Bras

The padding in a push-up bra will centre, shape and accentuate your bust. It can also help you go up a cup size for a more ‘full’ look. They are available in wired and non-wired options, as well as with full-coverage or demi cups. Push-up bras are great for when you want to accentuate your silhouette, or when you plan to wear an outfit with a low neckline.

Flexible Freedom

Non-wired Bras

Non-wired BrasSHOP: Non-wired Bras

The non-wired bra doesn’t have a metal underwire in the cups, making it much more flexible and easy to move in. The elasticity of the band and straps provide support to your breasts. Perfect for comfort and for long periods of time.

There but Not There

Strapless Bras

Strapless BrasSHOP: Strapless Bras

Stylish yet invisible, the strapless bra gives you all the support of a regular bra without the shoulder straps. This makes the strapless bra perfect for when you want to wear an off-shoulder or halter-neck style outfit.

Contour Me Pretty

Balconette Bras

Balconette BrasSHOP: Balconette Bras

Perfect for Indian outfits and ethnic wear, the balconette bra comes with cups that only cover your breasts partially. The balconette bra offers much less coverage than a T-shirt or a push-up bra. It gives you a natural lift and a much more naturally contoured look. As the straps are wide, balconette bras are the perfect choice for boat-necked tops, blouses and more.

Shop the styles from the above list at amanté and give your lingerie wardrobe a makeover!


Best bra for daily wear in India

Comfortable and best bras for daily wear in India translate differently depending on personal choices of women. For one woman, a non-padded bra might be the top pick for everyday wear, while for another, a padded bra qualifies as a supportive bra. No bust is alike and so are personal choices. At amanté, a wide portfolio of bra silhouettes is offered, that are high on comfort.

When considering what differentiates a comfortable bra for daily use from the one that might be better reserved for a special occasion, there are a few features to keep in mind.

  1. Fabric: Breathable and soft fabric are key when it comes to choosing a bra that one is going to wear repeatedly
  2. Underwire: Underwire is another consideration – for some, a big no, while for others, it’s a way to feel like the busts are receiving ample support
  3. Padding: If easy breezy feeling is the need of the hour, then a non-padded bra is recommended. Padded bras offer extra coverage and gives good shape, so many women prefer this style
  4. Coverage: Demi, full coverage and extra full coverage bras are available at amanté. Full coverage is most preferred for long wearing hours


Which bra is best for daily use?

We recommend cotton bras, T-shirt bras, non-padded bras for everyday wear as they are designed to deliver long hours of comfort. 

Can we wear sports bra daily?

We recommend you to wear sports bras only while you’re working out or exercising. Sports bras are designed to give compressed support which is not needed while you are not working out.

Are there any materials or features that are particularly important for everyday bras?

We recommend bras made of cotton and microfiber fabrics. While cotton is breathable and soft, microfiber is exceptionally soft on skin

T-shirt bra is most suited to be worn under all clothing. 

Is it OK to wear padded bras everyday?

Yes, we highly recommend it.
