Every girl remembers her first bra. And no, we're not talking about the super lame training bra your mom got you when you were 10.
We swear we're not asking for pervy reasons. (Stay with us.) You might not have known it at the time, but the bra style you chose had a lot to do with your personality. You and "the girls"
unconsciously bought a style that revealed a ton of info about your habits, what kind of friend you are, even who you like to date.
According to Victoria's Secret bra specialist Jessica Santos, that bra you bought years ago still says a lot about the kind of woman you are now. And just for the sake of hilarity, we asked Ky Henderson, Editor-in-Chief of ModernMan.com what he thought about each. (Of course, boys will be boys, so feel free to take it with a grain of salt.)
What was the first real bra you bought? The one you walked into the store and picked out all on your own? Was it cute and lacy (complete with bows)? Or was a padded, push-up bra more your style?
Spoiler alert: you will be shocked.
Demi BraWith its classic half-cup style and wide-set straps, the demi gives you natural cleavage and is "great for everyday wear," says Santos. You don't feel the need to go over-the-top with your bra choice, which shows that you're very comfortable in your own skin. Lucky for you, your look will never go out of style, so you naturally fit in everywhere. You're also a "down-to-earth" kind of girl, so you like to stay away from drama, says Santos. This means at the first sign of a catfight, you are so out of there.
Push-Up BraFirst of all, you love being in control -- and not just when it comes to how much cleavage you show (although you do love how your bra has extra padding in the cups and adjustable straps to give the girls that extra lift). If there's any major event going on in your life, you're the one in charge, Santos says. You're also "outgoing and flirty," and always on the lookout for ways to show off those qualities, says Santos. Because you know exactly what you want, you're super irresistible and hard to ignore ... for obvious reasons.
Strapless BraYou're the "exciting" and "adventurous" type, says Santos. You like to take risks, especially if there's a new experience you've always wanted to try. (Sky diving, anyone?) But when it comes to your fashion choices, you'd rather play it safe than be outrageous -- ditching the straps is one thing, but you won't go completely bra-less.
Underwire braYou're always looking for support from others, and you pretty much expect your friends to be there for you (you get it from your bra, so why not your girls?). This can make you somewhat of a diva, says Santos. Try toning down the sass a bit, and you'll be the girl everyone wants at their party -- a perfect mix of fun and sweet.
Front-hook braYou value convenience, and you're all about making things (even your boobs) more accessible, says Santos. Taking the quick route comes naturally to you, so why would you wear a bra that takes hours to put on and remove? Because your bra is so easy to un-fasten, it shows that you're "low-maintenance," says Henderson. "Or simply eager for your bra to come off. Either way, we win!"
Racerback braYou are conventional and practical, but still like to branch out when it comes to trends -- hence the nontraditional bra straps. And while you don't mind sticking to the classics, you're also really good at putting a modern spin on things. You like to feel comfortable and relaxed, says Santos, and that gives you the ability to stay poised under pressure.
Keep in mind: the straps cross in the back, making it harder to take off. So if you have "plans" tonight, you might want to re-think your bra choice. Unless you're a little sadistic, "since there's no way in hell we'll be able to remove that thing with anything even resembling suaveness," says Henderson.
