Discover the right model and style for every occasion. Finally a guide that helps and reveals all the secrets and characteristics of our bras.
This shape is a bra without underwiring or padding, and works to cover and support the breasts with adjustable straps. This type of bra is not always suitable for larger breasts, as it does not contain an underwire or technical cuts that help to contain and embrace the breast. We recommend these to be your first bra, especially for those who have undergone breast operations and those whom want to feel more natural and comfortable. Available in both cotton (Pima) and lace.
This bra is unlined with underwire and has adjustable straps. It features a cut cup in which the fabric is heated to obtain the ergonomic shape of the breast, giving the breast a gorgeous natural fit.

This varies according to the depth of the cup, and is most suitable in supporting large breasts. Available in cotton (Pima), lace and microfiber.

The fit of our Everybody bra collection
The bra must always feel supportive and must not constrain or make us feel uncomfortable in any situation. At the same time, it should give us a sense of freedom and liberation to explore our bodies, allowing us to feel comfortable, confident and safe.
It’s not easy to find the right bra. Most women do not even know their correct size as they often change brand and model. It often happens that what you see in the window – your bra of dreams – does not actually fit you well. This is a disappointing situation and one that can be avoided. When you shop at Yamamay stores, please do ask for help from trained staff who are more than happy to correct a wrong size, and really help you choose a bra that is well suited to you and enhances your natural beauty in all the ways you want it to. For each specific woman and breast size there is a bra.
Which one are you? Take a read below to see which one speaks to you the most:
1. The chosen bra must fit the body and breasts well and in proportion.
2. The cups must contain the breasts in a natural way without squashing or constricting them.
3. The underwire must embrace the breast and follow it’s shape upwards.
4. The bra should fasten easily and not feel too loose or tight. If it’s necessary, we can help you with stretchers. Our staff at the stores are more than happy to help!
5. The straps must not go down and be too long, nor mark the shoulders due to being too tight or short.
Yamamay bras are designed for the wellbeing of women, combining highly technical features with the latest trends in innovation and style.
