From balconettes and push-ups to bralettes, sports and maternity bras, shop stylish yet affordable bras, lingerie and other undergarments for all body types, including petite and plus-size, at these stores in Singapore
There’s one thing women change more than their underwear: bras. Of course it seems reasonable to mix things up in the lingerie drawer with a dizzying assortment of luxury bras and intimates, as well as budget-friendly ones, and to shop for new styles every now and then. However, finding an affordable option that lifts, supports and is comfortable enough to get you through the day can be a major pain in the derrière. If you’re not quite ready to splurge on luxury bras, here are some stylish yet affordable options for both curvy and petite women that’ll fit, not only your body but also your wallet, just fine.
