Cotton bras are the epitome of comfort and practicality. The absorbent power of cotton lets the skin breathe so you don't have spend your day hating your bra. Cotton is also a sturdier fabric which means your bra will last longer.

Cotton Bras Warrant Serious Consideration

Cotton bras have long been and continue to be a favorite of many women. Unlike their satin, nylon, and microfiber cousins, cotton bras let the skin breathe (which reduces perspiration) and absorb what perspiration there may be. In addition to feeling great on the skin, cotton bras can also provide more support to the bust line than some of your more flimsy, microfiber bras.

Cottons bras are also more practical because the fabric is more likely to hold up when it comes time to do laundry. Even if you hand wash and line dry all your lingerie, time and use will begin to wear rather quickly on the more dainty fabrics. Cotton bras, on the other hand, will last a long, long time--this also makes them a wiser buy as you get more for your money.

The same goes for panties as well. Though nylon, lycra or microfiber panties may eliminate the problem of panty lines, they don't have the same feel as cotton. And like cotton bras, cotton panties will most likely last longer.
