Balconette bras are designed to lift your bust and enhance your cleavage. These bras stay hidden under low-cut tops and dresses with necklines that would reveal the cups of full-coverage bra styles. Balconette styles also shape your breasts to create a smooth, natural-looking rounded finish for your bust. Most balconette bras feature light lined or padded cups for shaping. The only concrete difference between balconette bras and classic bra styles is the amount of coverage their cups provide

Sheer panties—also known as see through panties—are any panties crafted from semi- transparent material that shows at least a peek of your bare skin through the fabric. Many women think that wearing sheer panties is just as revealing as being completely naked. On the contrary, the vast majority of sheer panties are not fully transparent. Their level of opaqueness varies depending on the style. Some sheer panties are almost completely see through while others are so opaque that you can barely make out a flash of bare skin underneath.

36DD is a half-cup size with a cup volume that lies in between D and DDD/E. If you measure a difference of five inches between your bust and your band size, your ideal bra size—within the US sizing system—is likely DD.

A band size of 36 corresponds to a raw band size measurement of thirty-one or thirty- two inches. Once you add either five or four inches—as is customary when measuring band size—to these raw measurements, you will end up with 36 as your most accurate band size.

Determining the size of a G cup is essential if you’re trying to figure out whether a G cup is a right size for you. The size of a G cup varies significantly between different brands and sizing systems.

In the US, a G cup bra is sized to fit women whose bust measures approximately seven inches more than their ribcage. For example, if your ribcage measurement is 35 inches and your bust measures 42 inches, your ideal bra size should be a 36G 

A G cup bra size in the US is equivalent to an F cup size in the UK. Within the US sizing system, there are also sister sizes with a cup volume that is equivalent to a G cup even though the cup letter is different.

D is one of the most confusing bra cup sizes because it includes both double and triple cup letters, all of which are of slightly different sizes. These sizes vary even more between different international sizing systems, so choosing the right 34D, 34DD, or 34DDD bra is anything but simple.

Determining whether you should be wearing a size 34 bra band is relatively easy. If the circumference of your ribcage just below your breasts measures between thirty-two and thirty-four inches, then a 34 band size is probably your best fit. When measuring your band size, remember always to round up the number you measure to the next highest even number.

Tankinis provide a stylish yet traditionally conservative swimwear option that doesn’t force you to choose between covering up and staying on-trend. Tankini Swimwears are known for their modesty, which makes this style a rarity in the modern world of cheeky bikini bottoms and tiny triangle tops. Unlike bikinis and other skimpier two piece swimwear styles, tankinis provide full coverage for your midsection to help you feel comfortable and confident on the beach and by the pool.

There are as many types of plus size bras as there are standard size bras, if not more. While almost all bras advertised as ‘plus size’ focus primarily on providing extra support and security for large-busted women, the amount of support and level of comfort a plus size bra provides varies significantly depending on the type of bra you choose. The types of plus size bras described here include some of the most popular plus size styles, as well as the styles that many women find to be the most challenging to shop for successfully.
Thigh high stockings entered the world of mainstream women’s fashion around the eighteenth century when they were often worn invisibly under long dresses to increase the modesty of what were already extremely conservative outfits. As hemlines rose in women’s fashion during the early twentieth century, women’s thigh highs started to become visible underneath their shorter skirts and dresses. At this point, thigh high stockings were worn in part as a symbol of revolution against lower hemlines but also to cover exposed legs and allow women to maintain a certain level of modesty without their ankle-length dresses.
The first corsets were designed for women to wear underneath their dresses to “perfect” their natural figure by making their midsection appear more slender and forcing their waist into an unnaturally narrow shape. The first corset styles were brutally uncomfortable to wear, but their body-shaping benefits helped them retain a place in women’s fashion that has lasted into the twenty-first century.
