When we like the way we look we feel good about ourselves. That doesn’t mean we have to be a certain size, weight, or build to look our best. We just need to know our body types and how to dress them.
It’s important to realize that looking good in what you’re wearing isn’t just about choosing the right ensemble. That’s only part of the equation.
The part that makes the most difference in how a woman’s clothes look on her body is what’s underneath–properly fitted undergarments. When women wear the right types and fits of bras, corsets, or shapewear, it makes all the difference in how their clothes look when they put them on.
Today, I want to bust out some bra talk, pun totally intended. If you have an ill-fitted bra, you may notice that your sweater puppies are either spilling out the top or sliding underneath the bottom, the back of your bra rides, or maybe you’re even noticing marks and bruises. These are common concerns for about 75-80% of women, according to industry experts.
Trust me, ladies, the tatas need the proper support.
Not only is the right brassiere important for looking amazing in your clothes, but an ill-fitting bra, or one that lacks proper structure and support, will leave the girls hanging. And seriously, when was the last time you looked in the mirror and said, “Wow, I love how droopy my rack looks today! This bra ROCKS!”?
The wrong type of bra can lead to many headaches, literally. Not only can the stress of a poorly fitted bra reek havoc on your arms, back, neck, and shoulders, it can also lead to breast pain during exercise or skin abrasions (and possibly even infections) under the breasts of women with bigger busts. Most times the issue woman have with bras is that they purchase them far smaller than their actual size.
Here are some indicators that you may be wearing the wrong size bra for you.
1. The boobage overflows out of your bra cup. (Note: Boobage is a technical term I just made up but strongly feel should be included in Webster’s next addition. Please use regularly, especially in the presence of medical professionals.)
2. The band of your bra makes frequent trips due north.
3. The center of your bra or underwire won’t lie flat against your chest.
4. The material is always wrinkling and doesn’t stretch across the girls firmly to give you proper support.
I really feel it’s important for women to get professionally measured if possible, either at a lingerie shop or department store. Our clothes fit better, our bras are more comfortable and there are health benefits to proper support. Besides, there are certain things in life that are worth the little extra, and when it comes to our bodies, there’s nothing more deserving.
