5 Bra Types You Need In Your Lingerie Drawer

Refreshen your lingerie drawer

Belle Lingerie29 January 2021


Let’s use this month, January, as a refresher on your lingerie drawer. With Belle Lingerie’s help, you can use this time at home to sort and freshen up your bra collection. Whether you are a minimalist or love a wide selection of bras, we would highly recommend at least the following 5 types of bras:

  1. T-shirt bra
  2. Bralette
  3. Sports Bra
  4. Sexy Bra
  5. Day to Evening Transition Bra

Here at Belle Lingerie, we have such a large variety of bras, to suit every style, shape and budget. With thousands to choose from, we guarantee you will find bras to fill your lingerie drawer. Belle Lingerie always has great deals on bras, so you don’t need to worry about breaking the bank when you’re refreshing your bra collection. Check out your favourite brands such as Curvy Kate or Panache? Or why not have a browse through other brands that you might not have heard of, such as Tallulah Love or After Eden? We would hate for you to miss out on something new and exciting for your bra collection.

Refreshing your bra collection can be something we often forget to do. Let’s be honest, our bras are often shoved into the lingerie drawer and the favourite just comes out day after day. The thought of getting a new bra can sometimes feel daunting. You don’t really know if you are wearing the right size and what if the new bra is slightly different in sizing and what if that style doesn’t suit… and so on and so on! We completely understand but that’s when Belle Lingerie comes in helpful, with one click of a button you can order a new bra from the comfort of your own home. And if it’s not quite right our returns is a very simple process and in the UK delivery and returns are even free!

To help you further, here’s a quick run-down of what 5 types of bras you should have in your lingerie drawer. Have a read to make sure you’re not missing out! 


This is your everyday bra, the bra you grab in the morning while you are in a rush trying to get your morning routine done. Perfect under your everyday outfits, the cups are commonly moulded, slightly padded to give a rounded shape. This type of bra is very simple but is effective for everyday use. The bra has a full cup and is commonly underwired to help with support and shape throughout the day. Not the most glamourous but the aim of a t-shirt bra is too be invisible under your outfit. White, black and nude are the usual colours of t-shirt bras but you can check out a wide array of colours at Belle Lingerie. Our current customers’ favourites include Fantasie Neve Balcony T-shirt bra, Freya Muse Spacer Moulded Bra and Panache Porcelain Elan Plunge T-shirt Bra.


This will be your comfy option in your new bra collection. The bralette is known for being non-wired so is perfect for lying in front of the tv. Bralettes come in so many different shapes, styles and materials, from lace triangle cups to crop top style. Bralettes are not only ideal for lazy days but customers often style up with jeans and a leather jacket, so this bra type can be very versatile. Customers favourites include Cleo By Panache Lyzy Triangle Bra, Freya Wild Bralette Bra Top and for our bigger boobed ladies the Curvy Kate Unwind Bralette Bra top is very popular.

Now you may argue that a sports bra is not vital for everyone because who has time to fit in exercise, however sports bras can also be handy to grab when you’re doing your house chores or going for a Sunday stroll with all the family. You may not be a workout fan but don’t let that stop you from adding a sports bra to your lingerie drawer. The sports bras are great for support and keeping you in one place. But then again, if you are an exercise addict then you probably need the reminder to refresh your sports bra collection! For more information on sports bras please check out two of our recent blogs on sports bras – How to Exercise with Large Boobs and Reduce Bounce? And Home Workout Motivation.


There is nothing wrong with treating yourself to something a little sexier. Sometimes a woman can feel embarrassed and ashamed about have a seductive number in their lingerie drawer, but here at Belle Lingerie, we would highly suggest it. We believe sexy lingerie can boost your mood and confidence. Whether the sexy bra is to appeal to a loved one or for yourself, it’s great to have something in your lingerie drawer to boost your mood. Check out our Seductive section on Belle Lingerie or why not check out our sister website Sexy Belle? Sexy Belle offers a wide array of sexy and seductive pieces of lingerie. Sexy Bras will often show a bit more skin and have cute details to turn heads. Some of our customers' favourites include Contradiction by Pour Moi Statement Bra, Scantilly Black Magic Plunge Bra and Wonderbra Refined Glamour Balcony Bra. 

This type of bra probably has the biggest scope to choose from. It’s the bra that suits your everyday outfits but would wow when you undress in the evening. For example, adding a touch of lace to your everyday bras could become your day to evening transition bra. This bra is more likely going to be underwired to give you support throughout the day, but the padding is optional. Plunge bras and push-ups are popular for this type of bra as they help show off your best assets in the evening (your cleavage) but still give support and coverage during the day. But let’s be honest you could probably make any bra on Belle Lingerie a Day to Evening Transition bra, all depending on your style. Check out our full range of bras here>
