Every woman has her own way of choosing underwear. Some fancy obtaining a variety of gorgeous sets, others prefer basic bras (black, white, and beige), and yet others might like bright, flamboyant ones. But it doesn't matter which type women prefer, they'll all most likely have that crucial white bra in their wardrobe.
