Lingerie Styling Guide
Looking for a new set of lingerie? If so, you might feel a little overwhelmed by all the options. Many women have all sorts of questions, like: What are the differences between types of panties? Which traits should I look for in a bra? How many styles of bras and panties do I need? The world of lingerie is as diverse and unique as the women who wear them. Looking for a bra store in Canada? At The BraBar & Panterie, we’re here to help. We’re going to share more information about some of the lingerie pieces that we carry online and at our retail locations. If you’re looking to expand your bra and panty collection, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together this lingerie styling guide to help you get started:
You’ve heard of terms like full-coverage, balcony, and t-shirt bras—but what do they really mean? There are a lot of different types of bras on the market, and it can be confusing to find which ones will work best for you. At The BraBar, that’s what we’re here for. We’ll help you identify the traits you’re looking for in a bra, like full-coverage or a low-cut. You’ll learn about which features give a bra more lift and support. We’ll also show you which styles might work best for your body, and recommend a few of our favourites.
There’s something undeniably elegant about a lace bra. They’re feminine, chic, and flirtatious. Wear them under a sheer or open-back top to reveal a bit of the lace material. We carry stunning bras from brands like Prima Donna and Empreinte. Lace bras are perfect for date nights or dinners. They offer the coverage and support you need, with a hint of sensuality to spice things up. These bras combine sensual style with comfort and support. You can choose bras with a hint of lace trim or a full lace cup. To complete the look, shop our collection of matching lace panties.
Underwear is something we put on every day, so it’s worth your while to invest in pairs that are comfortable and make you feel confident. The question is, which style is right for you? Think about how versatile your wardrobe is. You have outfits for hot, summer days and chilly, winter nights. Your underwear drawer should be just as versatile! Choose from popular styles like thongs, panties, briefs, and shorties. Each type has a unique cut, fit, and feel. Some fit higher on your waist and offer a bit of body shaping. Others leave little to the imagination. Regardless of which you prefer, we’re sure to have a pair that you’ll enjoy.
Wearing Invisible Briefs
Are you looking for underwear that’s a little more discrete? Invisible briefs are the perfect thing to wear under form-fitting clothes. You can sport stylish lingerie without worrying about panty lines showing through—that’s the beauty of invisible briefs. We offer seamless panties and thongs from brands like Hanky Panky, Marie Jo, Fantasie and PrimaDonna. If you prefer a more sensual and flirty look, try out a thong; if comfort is your priority, you might prefer a pair of cotton panties. We also feature garments with patterns that are playful, bold, and flirty. Don’t be afraid to try colours that are outside of your comfort zone.
The sun’s out. The water’s warm. It’s time to slip into your favourite swimsuit and enjoy everything that summer has in store. Show off your curves and feel confident at the beach with our selection of swimwear. Just because you’re wearing a swimsuit doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice support. We carry bikini tops, tankinis and one-piece swimsuits designed to support larger cup sizes. Our bra fitters will make shopping for swimwear in Canada enjoyable and show you pieces that fit and flatter. Unable to shop in-store? Shop our collection of stylish bikinis, flattering one-pieces, and high-waisted bottoms online instead.
