If there was something i could tell my teenage self, it would be, "Never to buy a bra because it was pretty enough to have, even if it didn't fit". Yes, i found out how much a good fitting bra can change one's life forever...and they could still be pretty. Especially if they can work so perfectly well with everyday outfits. Bras are essential pieces and every time i share my views about them it's because finding the perfect fit is one of the biggest issues most women today are still facing. Reminder, the body changes and it is so important to always update your bra size at least every 6 months. Many brands today are providing many different tools to make it easier and accessible for every woman to be able to measure themselves and find a perfect fitting bra.
ThirdLove is both a luxurious and affordable online lingerie store. They have bra cup sizes as high as F and G. With every woman in mind they have created a very cool app that can help you determine your bra size with just a snap. Yeah, this is the time to use those selfie skills of yours. Seriously, you really have to check this out. I haven't tried it because the last time i checked it is only available on iPhone for now, but it is worth looking at. There is a very short video tutorial to help you out. If you try it, please let me know your thoughts.
While you are at it, here is a buying guide to my top six most essential and must-have bras. For those who need it, hopefully it helps with your next bra shopping. If you don't already have them, i recommend these bras should be in your lingerie top drawer. I own all and i keep updating my collection whenever i can to date.
1. T-SHIRT BRA
From the moment i discovered the wonderful things a t-shirt bra can do for you, i was changed forever. There is nothing a woman wants more that great comfort and fit in a bra. What a t-shirt bra does for you goes way beyond that. It gives a perfectly smooth layer underneath your outfit no matter what kind of fabric it may be, such as a t-shirt top or dress, satin tops, silk dresses, tank tops, lace tops and more. It has always been my go-to bra for years and today, it is one of the most popular bras.
2. PUSH UP BRA
Now if you do not know yet, i am going to tell you now -A push up bra can do wonders to your posture. I find it to actually give me a slimmer torso when i wear it. My shoulders tend to stay up higher and stronger. The padding and far apart straps of a push up bra generally gives one a pretty good lift. It makes every outfit i wear fall gracefully on me. I mostly prefer little to moderate push up bras with my low cut dresses, especially on an evening out. Every time i wear it, it makes me want to sashay when i walk.
3. STRAPLESS BRA
Every girl needs one. Strapless bras make my life so easy, oh my gosh. Now that i have to wear summer pieces that come with skinny straps, no straps, crossed back and more, they are life savers.I don't have to think twice about what to wear.
4. FULL COVERAGE BRA
This is what i call the modest bra. When i need to tone things down a little or when i need to wear something formal that calls for a modest look, i pull out my full coverage bra. It gives me more support, security and extra confidence all around when i wear it. Unlike me, if you are blessed with large bust size, this will be a definite bra type to add to your collection for all day full support.
5. SPACER BRA
The space between bra cups is such a big deal and i like to take advantage of that. I love to breathe and not feel squashed in my clothes when i wear a bra. This breathable bra is great with just about any outfit but i often like to wear mine with wrap dresses or wrap around tops and outfits with low plunging necklines.
6. LACE BALCONET BRA
Not just a balconet bra, but with lace. This is the bra that completes your lingerie top drawer collection. The romantic lingerie piece with all that sexiness is a must-have. It has less coverage, but i like that the lace acts like a little tease to it even if the bra doesn't show.
Meanwhile, i got my first bra from ThirdLove recently and i can't wait to tell you about my experience wearing this one of a kind, very interesting and unique bra soon. Guess?
