Valentine’s Day is coming—but that’s not the only reason why you should update your smalls.

Realistically, you only need four different types of bras—skin colour, black, lace-cup and strapless to make every outfit work.

Lace-cup bras are made for sheer shirts and for showing off under low-cut singlets.
Wear under any of your dark tops—especially handy if you happen to be in a photo with a flash—a black bra will stop you from showing off what you shouldn’t be.
