There's nothing more frustrating than buying an item of clothing for someone that doesn't fit.

Also, choose something to offset skin tones. In other words, light colors for dark skin and vice versa.

Bras - Sexy Bra Styles vs. Purely Functional Everyday Women's Brassiere
Women's bra sales represent over 50% of all lingerie and intimate apparel sales.
First and foremost the brassiere was designed as a functional garment to support the bust.
Many innovations for more comfortable and improved support have been introduced over the years, for example, underwire (and non-underwire) support and textile advancements such as spandex and microfiber.
In general, a functional everyday bra is comfortable and provides support with no frills, such as a full cup and full coverage bra.
Sexy bras on the other hand may provide support; however, function is not necessarily the first consideration when designing sexier bras.
The shelf bra, for example, provides little support, however, is among the best selling of sexy bra styles.
The push-up bra is another type of more sensual bra style because it lifts the breasts, creating the appearance of greater fullness and cleavage.While shelf and open tip bras are at the far side of the more sexy range, a plethora of less risqué, yet nevertheless, sensual bra styles exist such as the plunge bra, cut much lower in the front to reveal more cleavage; the backless bra to reveal more of the back; and, the strapless bra to show more of the shoulders.
In essence, sexy bras reveal more of the woman's bust, back and shoulders, whether with their design and cut or the fabrics of which they are made, such as sheer and see through materials.
