I’m a bra expert and there’s a magic number every woman should have – you’ll probably be surprised by the truth | The Sun

A BRA expert has revealed that there’s a “magic number” of bras that every woman should own.

But many might be shocked to find out they’re far off the mark. 

Emily Blount, head of product at Lounge Underwear, said the magic number is ten.

According to Blount, having ten means your comfort, functional and flattering needs can all be meant. 

There isn’t any concrete evidence for the amount of bras women own on average but some studies have found that it is as low as five. 

Speaking to Femail, Blount advised: “'You should create a capsule bra wardrobe to suit every occasion.

“Such as three everyday bras, three sports or loungewear bras, two 'dressy' plunge bras and one strapless bra.”

However, she acknowledged that lifestyle differences can make the magic number of ten go up or down a little.

Blount said: “The number of bras and panties you should own will completely depend on how active you are and the type of occasions you need your bras for.

“Wearing the correct bra type can do a lot more than just lifting your bust.

As for pants, Blount advised you should have enough pairs to ensure you never run out of clean ones.

This will look like 15 to 20 pairs for most women. 

You should also replace your intimates more often than you think.

Loungewear professional Blount advised replacing your underwear every six-to-nine months. 

This aligns with the recommendation that you should get your bra size measured every six months.
