This is the most common of the lot, and one of the most useful ones to own. This kind of bra is very beneficial when you are wearing a tight-fitted top or dress. A T-shirt bra is seamless and has moulded cups. They make you feel confident in skimpy clothes as well as well as casual ones.

For daring necklines, the strapless bra is the solution. Since this kind of bra has no straps, one can easily wear tube dresses with them. A tube bra is like a strapless bra, but with less support. It is like a strip across your bust. Yes, it does not provide much support, but it is a very playful bra. You can buy tube bras in different colours and patterns and use them to add layers to the dresses with deep cuts and big armholes. Also, sweetheart necklines look better when supported by a strapless bra.
Halter neck bras can be worn with halter neck dresses. It is a good choice if you are wearing a dress with a deep V-necks as well. For some summer time fun, funky halter neck bras are a good alternative for swimwear.
Balconette is perfect for very low-cut dresses. The cups of these bras are low and horizontally placed. They are loosely referred to as 'cupless bras' following their low cut cups. The straps of this bra are on the far end that makes it a good option for square neck dresses too.
A plunge bra is another answer for the plunging necklines. The cups are attached with a thin centrepiece. A plunge bra works as a push-up bra too. Thus, they work wonders with loose-fit dresses and noodle strap dresses as well.
A padded bra is the perfect kind to add an oomph factor to any kind of outfit. The pads vary from light to heavy, and can be selected accordingly. This kind of bra gives a proper shape to the bust, thus, makes every dress look perfect.
A front open bra is simply convenient. It can be adopted for daily use. And if you have a dress that is strappy at the back, then too you should opt for a front open bra. Not only does it make the band of the back blend with the dress, it secures your bra too. For the dresses with zipper at the back, a front open bra is a great choice.
For low cut, scoop neck and wide necklines, a demi-cup bra is a simple solution. Unlike balconette bras, a demi bra is not set in a horizontal pattern, which makes it a good option even for regular wear.
For the tank tops or any kind of dress that has a racerback, this kind of bra is the best option. In addition to that, any dress that demands the bra to provide more support, racerback bra is always there for the rescue.
This is one of the most avoided of all bras. Paradoxically, this one is a must for every woman's wardrobe. Not only does a sports bra provide support, it is essential to prevent sagging breasts if one is trying to lose weight. If you love to workout, do not avoid this one.
To find a dress is hard, but it always seems finding the perfect bra is harder. But, if you have these bras in your wardrobe, you do not have to worry about anything. You can just pick up any dress that you want and you are good to go.
