THE BEST BRAS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN

Wondering how many bras you should own? Discover our top tips for choosing the best bras for every occasion and outfit in your arsenal, from best-selling everyday bras to special-occasion lingerie (and yes, you may just want them all…)


The smoothing T-shirt bra

If you’re looking for an everyday style that gives you a seamless silhouette, our bestselling invisible-under-clothes Sumptuously Soft T-shirt bras are for you - as seen on writer and model Jessica Vander Leahy. With hundreds of five-star reviews online, customers are impressed by their comfort factor. And with more neutral shades available than ever before, this is the kind of comfy go-to bra you’ll end up wearing again and again.

The underwired plunge bra

Our elegant and comfy (yes, really) underwired bras are some of our most in-demand styles. So, what makes these ultra-supportive designs so universally loved? They do the job when it comes to style and comfort – and fit like a glove. They also come in a wide range of sizes, including DD+, without compromising on style. A full-cup shape offers maximum coverage, with non-slip straps and comfort elastics so it stays in place all day, while a high-apex deep plunge bra flatters smaller busts by defining the cleavage.

The date-night balcony bra

While you need space in your bra drawer for practicality, a little special-occasion glamour is essential, too. The padded balcony bra is another of our bestselling shapes – this bra gives just the right amount of lift and looks a dream under a low-cut top. Choose vintage-inspired silk and lace designs by Rosie Exclusively for M&S to infuse your lingerie line-up with supermodel allure or check out our Boutique X Damaris range for fashion-forward and sexy lingerie ideas.

The ultimate sports bra

We all need one, but finding a sports bra that performs and looks great is a challenge. Ideal for high-impact activity and cut from moisture-wicking fabric, a zip-front sports bra is a real multitasker, suitable for all activities including running. Try teaming your sportswear with a vibrant blazer and chunky sneakers for a post-gym look that demands attention. The customer reviews speak volumes: “It does the job excellently”, “It’s comfortable and easy to get on” and ”It gives great support". Try teaming your sportswear with a vibrant blazer and chunky sneakers like Neha Walia for a post-gym look that demands attention.

The stylish strapless bra

Available in a variety of neutral tones, a strapless bra is one of the most versatile – and flattering – styles you can own. With easy-to-detach straps, our strapless styles stay up and give your bust a flattering shape. Thanks to a special elastic, you can rest assured that our strap-free bras will stay firmly yet comfortably in place.
