Unless you despise bras, chances are, some days you feel like going bra free whereas others you fancy a bit of extra padding. For days when you feel you need a little extra oomph, bras with inserts will come to your rescue.
As all humans with mammary glands know, bras don't come cheap; at least, most of the time. It's easy to develop a lingerie fetish when there are so many beautiful bras out there, but you can end up broke if extend your wallet to each and every one of them. Of course you can eat just dry bread and ramen for the foreseeable future in order to feed your lingerie addiction, but you probably won't thrive on such a nutrient lacking diet. For most of us, having a social life is important too, and speaking for myself, there's no chance I would be able to afford luxe, new bras every month as well as all the after work drinks. Yes, I just burst my own bubble — don't worry, though: There's good news.
Instead of letting your underwear drawer become a neglected wasteland of frayed lace and loose elastic, there's another option: Bras with inserts. These gems give you two looks for the price of one, which will not only save you money, but will also help you lead a more minimal lifestyle.
So here's a bunch of bras with inserts to help you lead a double life!
