Let's be honest: bra shopping is tough. Not only is there the shape to worry about, but then there's also the question of support, style and – dare we say – even a bit of... sexiness?

It's important to find the perfect one for you, and that means getting to grips with some of the key bra types that no curvy woman's underwear drawer should lack. 

When shopping for a bra, the golden rule is to make sure you find one that fits and supports you perfectly. The centre between the cups should lie flat against your chest bone; there should be no 'two boob' situation (absolutely zero cup spillage); the bra's band shouldn't ride up your back; and, finally, any underwiring should sit neatly under your boobs and never on top. Most underwear stores offer free fittings, so make sure you take advantage and ask about the best bra for you.

And if you follow these simple steps? Next stop: Bravo boobs!

1.T-Shirt Bra

This style of bra serves the same purpose as a good pair of jeans – it's comfy, flattering, and goes with everything. T-shirt bras are super supportive and are practically invisible under clothes, if you look for a seam-free option.

Whether you choose a style that has full-cup coverage or one that's more low cut, once you find a shape to suit you, be sure to buy one in every colour for the ultimate in day-to-day bra wear.

2. Balconette Bra

When it comes to beautiful bra shapes, the balconette has to be one of the best. Available in fabrics from luxurious silk all the way through to comfy cotton, they're low cut: If you need something to wear under a low horizontal neckline, this will give your cleavage serious wow factor.

If you boast bigger boobs, look for styles with thicker straps and good underwiring that will work hard to make sure your chest is fully supported at all times (leaving you to enjoy the attention!)
 

3. Strapless Bra

Where would we be without a trusty strapless bra for those occasions when we want to bare our shoulders and be a little discreet?

Those with bigger boobs will understand the very real struggle of finding a style that not only works to provide support, but also sits comfortably under clothes while looking good, too.

Opt for a bra with hidden structure and moulded cups that 'hold' your boobs in place, lifting your chest and keeping everything comfortably in check.
 

4. Minimiser Bra

If you're looking for a bra that complements your curves, boosts your confidence and ensures a sleek silhouette at all times, look no further than the minimiser

A minimiser bra lifts and compresses the breasts, all thanks to some clever comfortable support. But don't be fooled into thinking minimisers are a frumpy choice: More and more beautiful styles are hitting the shelves, from lace to satin numbers, meaning you can look your best in– and out– of your clothes…

Long gone are the days when wearing a low-cut or deep v-neck top meant having to go braless – and therefore support-free. A plunge bra is the perfect style to not only keep some much-needed scaffolding in place, but the shape will mean you can wear even the sexiest of garments and you won't have to sacrifice comfort or support.

Look for a 'u-plunge' style that will keep your cleavage plumped up, without any telltale cups peaking out over your clothes. For daytime wear, try a natural coloured style, or up the glam with a black, lacy look in the evening.
 

6. Multiway Bra

If your boobs need a little help in the support department, that doesn't necessarily mean dealing with giant bras you're more used to seeing on your grandma's washing line.

Look for a full-cup bra with a higher cut to give more coverage. You'll be surprised by how many gorgeous styles there are to choose from; sheer, lacy, patterned, satin... A full-cup bra will keep your boobs under control, while you show off your fabulous figure.
