what is a bustier

Buying your very first bustier is a momentous occasion. Many of us invest in this stunning style of lingerie at some point, yet for some of us, the idea of doing so can be a little intimidating. We hear you!

If you’re not sure where to start, you may be tempted to pass up on this style of underwear altogether. Don’t do that. You deserve to look and feel fabulous.

Here are some of the mistakes to avoid when buying a bustier for yourself:

Thinking that all bustiers are the same

Before we go any further, there’s something you should know. Not all bustiers are the same. When you’re shopping for your first ever one, you need to make sure that you’re looking for quality, not merely a good price tag. The fact of the matter is that there’s a massive range of different bustier styles out there and so you need to be highly selective.

This is a seriously structured piece of lingerie and, when it’s done right, it can be supportive and comfortable. Take the time to shop around and look for pieces that will give you the fit you need and start the test of time.

Choosing the wrong material

Unlike other pieces of lingerie, a bustier covers a whole section of your body. For that reason, you absolutely have to invest in a high-end material. The last thing you want or need is for the fabric to irritate your skin when you’re wearing the piece.

Pay close attention to the descriptions and look for some lingerie that’s sure to be the perfect fit. For example, a bustier with foam-lined, microfiber cups and a lace bodice work under a number of outfits. Fantastic.

Failing to get an underwire piece

When you’re choosing a bustier, the type of cups that the piece has is seriously important. This is especially true if you happen to have larger breasts, as you’re going to need to get some support along the way. Choosing a piece that has some underwire could be the answer you’ve been looking for. So, why not give it a go?

Underwire helps to keep your breasts in place while you’re wearing the piece of lingerie, which is, of course, a major bonus. The rest of the bustier is structured and designed to offer your bust a seriously great level of support. So long as you choose a high-quality bustier, you should find that you feel comfortable wearing it.

Now that you know what mistakes to avoid, it could be time to invest in your first bustier. Choosing a supportive bustier to add to your growing lingerie collection is a fantastic way to upgrade your look and style. Start looking now and see whether there’s a special piece out there that catches your eye. Good luck and happy shopping.
