Choose Your Style

Multi-way Bra

The multi-way is a solution for different necklines. This bra has detachable straps that can transform it into a strapless, a cross back or even a halter neck to accommodate your fab fashion style. Get this type in at least two colours and hide the unwanted bra straps away!

Plunge Bra

For all your low-cut or v-shaped tops and dresses, the plunge bra works wonders. The cups are designed to join low on the supporting strap to ensure that your bra does not show. A plunge can also be used as a push-up, giving you that extra lift for more confidence.

Shelf Bra

This is a quarter cup or a cupless bra. If you want to appear larger this bra can help with a bit of a push and make your breasts seem fuller. If you’re in a bit of a playful flirty mood, put on one under your new summer dress and feel as good as the sun in spring .

T-shirt Bra


Clingy T-shirts will reveal bra lines and a lot more if you’re not wearing the right kind of undergarment. To prevent any mishaps or unwanted stares, get a bra with formed cups that create a smooth line under your T-shirt. You can choose any colour for your darker tees and go nude for your whites or lighter colours.

Show your bra some love

  • Wear your bra twice in between washings. Do not wear the same bra twice in a row, it needs to rest too.
  • A good quality bra can last years. Invest in 5 to 7 different styles with the right fit and you’ll be set for a long time!
  • Breast shape and size will change at least twice in your lifetime: Childbirth or weight gain/loss can cause changes, so make sure you get fitted to remain in the A-game.
