What To Wear When: Bras vs. Nipple Covers/Pasties

What type of bra should I wear? is an age-old question which has been bothering brides for as long as we can remember. However, you must remember ladies that bras are not your only option. Nipple pasties cover and body tapes have emerged as a saviour in situations where a bra just cannot help. So, let's go over when wearing a bra is a good option and when you should go for nipple pasties, covers and body tapes. 

When To Wear A Bra 

1. When You Need A Lift & Volume 

Bras are magical in the sense that they give you the lift and the volume that you need. When you are wearing a low neckline, you can wear a padded push-up bra to give your breasts that extra oomph. Bras work wonders for those who want to enhance their cleavage. 

2. When You Need Coverage

Bras are extremely helpful for heavy breasts as they help with support and coverage. If you have a bigger chest, you may want to wear an underwired full-coverage bra that helps support your breasts from the bottom and the sides. We love how bras give you overall coverage.

Bras are the best when it comes to confidence. There is a type of bra for all types of breast shapes and sizes and you can pick whichever one flatters you the most. A well-fitted bra can do a lot for your confidence. It can make you feel beautiful and sexy in your own body. 

4. When You Need A Long Term Use 

You must opt for a good quality bra if you want to make long-term use of it. Bras can be expensive but they can used over and over again. As long as it is your size, suits your breast shape and is of good quality, a bra is worth the money you are spending on it.
