  • I would say maybe 3 regular bras (black, white, tan). You can buy the kind that convert so you can use them in multiple ways or buy those thigns to make them useful for a t-back bra. I would also suggest at least 1 sports bra and 1 strapless.

  • I have two black ones, and two white ones. Three of them are convertible into strapless. I also have a sports bra and a couple "Sexy" things that I rarely ever wear any more! LOL! Oh and a couple in a size three times too big from my pregnancy and PP days.

  • 2 beige ones (or whatever color matches your skin tone), 2 black ones, a t back beige, a t back black, a good strapless beige, a good strapless black and then whatever sexy bras you like. I have all the basics and then my collection of sexy stuff that I´ve sort of built up over the years. I also have 7 sports bras for working out.

  • i guess a woman should own a few, with matching panties, but I only have one regular bra and a sports bra

  • that would depend on how often they do laundry. 3 works for me because I'm doing laundry like every day.

  • I have a lot of bras b/c I used to work in the lingerie department at JCPenney and would always get them soooo cheap. Well, when I was pregnant I had to buy more and buy nursing bras since my breasts went up 2 cup sizes. I'm keeping them all b/c I plan on getting pregnant again. I kept all my older bras b/c once I was done breastfeeding they all fit again!

  • i would like about 5, one convertable for different shirts, and about 5 sports bra's for working out 5 days a week, because we only do laundry once a week. BUT they are expensive adn i can't afford them!

  • I have so many bras , that half of them are packed away. Through losing weight , gaining weight...nursing.....and what not...
    I have an asortment of colors and style as well.

  • I think I have about 10 of them. I haven't wore one in a year though- I had a bilateral mastectomy last March. Those definitely don't fit anymore!
