My Boobs Bounce in Bralettes

 

One of our clients found it awkward when she wore a bralette for the first time. The fit was perfect when she tried it. It had the right support at the right areas. The only problem was that she didn’t feel good wearing them.

 

Like most ladies, she was obsessed with the elegance of a bralette but was skeptical about her boobs bouncing all over the place. Well, here’s the problem. Switching from an underwire full cup padded bra to a bralette feels incredibly uneasy at first. It’s as though you are not wearing anything at all!

 

She felt as though her boobs were left hanging without any support and they just bounced like there was a party in her undergarments. What she didn’t realize was the red marks left imprinted on her skin after decades of being restricted in hard underwire bras and tightened straps.

 

Being supported is different from being restricted and restricting your body in underwire and tight straps in decades can do some serious health damage.

 

Bralettes have a reputation of being lesser than a “real” bra – but what the heck?! They don’t have perfectly molded cups to hold your boobs but that doesn’t mean they don’t support. Bralettes are more casual than basic bras; they also fit your busts perfectly without any spillage, providing style, comfort and support.

 

Not only being less restrictive, bralettes are fashion icons themselves. Come in different styles, bralettes complement and coordinate with your outfit almost flawlessly.

 

A quality bralette gives you a flattering silhouette many women may have overlooked. Do you realize how many people have boobs looking odd because they don’t check themselves in the mirrors? You won’t fall victim to that wearing a bralette.

 

Let your body breathe sometimes – they don’t want to be chocked in underwires and tight straps. Wearing the right fit will make you feel a whole lot sexier and you will be amazed by how confident you actually feel about yourself.

 

Trust the experts!

No Boobs too Small for Bras

 

We get this a lot. “My boobs are so small I don’t need a bra.”

 

Should you go completely braless? Maybe not. However small your breast tissue may be, there is still breast tissue. If eye bags can sag, why can’t your breast tissue?

 

Even if you are completely idle, gravity will still pull them down. The point is, in most situations when you are on the move, your small boobs jiggle – even when you are only walking from one point to another.

 

Women with small boobs often can’t fill a cup hence it leads to frustration and ditching the bra altogether but it comes with its fair share of limitation as well. Sometimes, you may just want to wear a thin white tee on a blazing summer day without feeling exposed.

 

While most of the time it’s about covering the nipples on the small boobs, you need a certain degree of support too.  As far as support for small boobs goes, wearing a bra keeps your boobs in place and in sync with the movements of your body because even the smallest amount of breast tissue will sag. You will still want to be feeling body positive even as you age. Also, you wouldn’t want your nipples to chafe on your clothes.

 

You do not have to be digging into underwires and push up bras. Bralettes are ideal for small boobs. They’re comfortable and they give your boobs the flattering shape they deserve. The last thing you want is to look disproportionate or awkward in a badly fitted bra.

 

If you wear a quality bra in the right size, you can wear whatever you want without feeling exposed, improves breast health and kick your confidence into high gear. After all, lingerie should be fun, empowering and makes you feel amazing about yourself rather than stressing you out.

 

Bra Sizing – It’s Not Just the Cups

 

Raise your hand if you have silently felt great wearing the cute and perfectly fitting bra!

 

Bra sizing is pretty much scientific, nothing artistic but yet, it remains a mystery to many. You don’t have to start measuring all over again because measurements are not as accurate as compared to how you feel wearing it.

 

Your feelings make a better judge compared to the ruler.

 

Look for signs to see if you are in your perfect fit.

 

Are the straps digging in?

Is your bra band riding high?

Or are you suffocating?

 

The list of problems goes on and on but it all boils down to the feeling of discomfort. Are you uncomfortable in your bra? No? Great! Yes? Just do this.

 

You will be secretly happy when you wear your perfect fit

If your band is too tight, go up one band size but go down one cup size. If your band is too loose, go down one band size and go up one cup size.

 

It’s that simple. There should be no complications.

To Lace or Not To Lace

“Lace Bra is a different bra type isn’t it?” No, it certainly is not. If you think of Lace as a detail and not a style, it will not only make bra shopping less cumbersome but it also makes you understand the functionality of a lace bra better. Whether to lace or not to lace, that is the question you should be asking, not if this is an entirely different bra type that you should not leave out in your lingerie wardrobe.

The beauty of a Lace Bra is how it can influence how you feel from within and define who you truly are. In your years of wearing a bra, have you thought of who is it that you are wearing for?

Sounds silly?

Are you wearing what you are wearing to conform to the societal beauty standards that your boobs need to look big and sexy? Or are you wearing bras so your boyfriends think you are hot? Or are you wearing them because you feel good in them? Does your confidence shine through and puts that smile onto your face? Do you radiate positivity because it empowers you?

Like all bras, deciding whether or not to go all lacey has a lot to do with how it makes you feel. Whether we like it or not, what we wear on the inside has a huge impact on how we feel – be it our self esteem, body image, mood, energy and even how our day has been. So if you put a lot of work into crafting your perfect OOTD, you will also want to work on what you wear inside.

On most days, a woman’s self image tends to take a beating. The power of lace is that it makes you feel sexy. Lace is a symbol of femininity and romance. It has the ability to arouse the many senses of sensuality. Essentially, the importance of feeling sexy is likened to the air we breathe. When you feel sexy, you become the best version of yourself. You feel deeply desired. You even increase your sexual drive – you will want sex even more and your health will be thanking you soon.

Ignore what the media says about societal norms of conforming to impossible beauty standards of thinness and proportionate body measurements; you do not have to live by these unrealistic expectations. You are unique being yourself.

The way you feel about your body image is 80% what you think the world thinks about you and 20% of what you really are. You will want to reverse that. Nothing looks better on you that confidence that shines from within.

Bra Care like You Care

How exciting would it be to find fresh new bras in your closet every time you open it?

While you can’t be buying new bras every weekend, you can definitely learn some tricks to keep them new.

It’s crazy how you spend thousands a year on bras but you are completely clueless when it comes to caring for them. It is good news for lingerie retailers when users don’t know bra care because a shorter life span means more repeat sales.

Can you imagine having a pet dog and feeding and treating it right? You don’t expect the dog to live past 60 days do you?

….”But it’s just bra”. Yes it is just bra, but that doesn’t mean you don’t care for them – right?

If you’re going to be spending anyway, you should be spending on different types and styles of lingerie because of the different occasions where you will need them, not because the 3 month old bra has gone out of shape because it was spun and twisted harshly in the washing machine on high temperatures.

As worthy as bras are as investments, they are also very delicate investments so it pays to learn and be aware of how to treat them like your best friends.

They work so hard for you. They make sure you have the right support, the perky boobs, the cleavage so deep you can pour wine into (and feeling naughty about it) and more importantly, they make you feel great!

There are only 2 ways to washing everything – either you manual wash them or you put it on auto.

While you should really hand wash your bras, you’re going to scream about your morning rush hour traffic, your next appointment with your client, your dinner date, your coffee that’s boiling in the machine – we know you have so much to do with so little time.

If you’re not going to hand wash them, you have to wash your bras in the washer on the gentlest cycle there is and you have to put them in a bag.

Do not stuff too many bras in a bag or they won’t be clean. Hook the bands together and wash them with similar colors and never ever spin them dry.

Air dry them and if you cant wait for your bras to dry, you can either wear something else or buy a new one. We have good bras too!

You will never want to hang them like this! You should first towel dry your bras to remove excess water and then lay them flat to dry.

But if you have to hang, make sure you hang them at the centre gore so gravity wouldn’t pull the bra loose.

Remember, you will be excited to see fresh new bras every time you open your closet!

What is the Best Bra?

….”What is the best bra?”…

We get asked this a lot at our fittings; even at times when we’re just chatting with friends.

Here’s the idea. There is no best bra.

It’s just like asking the best time to do something.

You don’t ask for the best time to do something, you’ll know when it’s time. What you’re actually feeling is readiness, courage, confidence, certainty – it’s how you feel from within you that matters. No one is supposed to tell you what or how to feel, right?

It’s the same for lingerie. There is no best bra – but there is how you want to feel and how the bra can best bring that feeling out in you.

Bras have come a long way since breastbags and the handkerchiefs with ribbons. They have evolved and adapted to the influence of fashion and sexual tastes of time. And speaking of sexual tastes, there are those who wear bras to feel sexy. So isn’t the feeling what it’s all about?

There are also women who wear bra to conform to societal norms. Then there are the ones who just want to keep the nipples from showing. If you are wearing bras on the inside as innerwear, then bras should be how they make you feel, not how sexy they look.

Many people get it wrong – they are being worn by the bras instead of them wearing the bras. What does that mean?

Have you seen a pair of boobs that is so awkwardly disproportionate to the body so much that the boobs look like they are screaming for help? Or boobs are pushed so high up that they look more like balloons than they are boobs?

If you’re feeling it, you are probably wearing what you think is the best bra.

Instead, ask yourself what do you want from wearing bra? If you are asking for the best bra, then what is it about the bra that makes you think it’s the best?

Or what do you want it for? For sex?

Then how about trying a pair of red lacy push up plunge bra? But what if you do not have the volume to create that sensual cleavage? Are you going to force yourself in and end up feeling uncomfortable? And then lose all the confidence and passion for sex?

What you really want to do is to find the right bra for the right occasion to feel at your best.

If you have to lose the bra to feel great about yourself, go ahead and lose it because that itself is your best bra.

When To Wear A Plunge Bra

A Plunge Bra is truly one of the industry’s marvels. Although most would disagree, we think that this style is one of the most versatile styles that go with just about anything.

“…..Just about anything? Yes, just about anything.”

In our consultations and bra fittings, we have paired our collection of Plunge Bras across a variety of everyday fashion from formal suits to casual jackets and street blouses.

The Plunge Bra feels you from within, giving you that sense of empowerment a woman should have and not being gender sidelined in ways that annoy you to the bone. In a perceptual world dominated by man – but hey, as great as a man thinks of himself, he came from a great person called mother, who happens to be a woman, isn’t that so?

Not all superwoman wear capes, you can wear a Plunge Bra too! If anyone tells you that you are not good enough or that you are not qualified enough, you should get up, dress up and lift your spirits high because your confidence is shining right through.

Unless you are not wearing the right fit, a Plunge Bra is the wonder woman of your collection. Whether you are dressing up for work, going for a dinner date or simply dressing to impress, you’ll find that a Plunge Bra is almost as good as a one for all innovation.

So what exactly is a Plunge Bra?

It is a style that dives into the centre of your chest which gives it the name Plunge, and flatters your neckline while hiding the fabric underneath your clothes. It is angled perfectly to naturally lift your breasts in the ways you have always desired.

When to Wear a Balconette Bra

 

Unless you are not wearing bras anymore, your lingerie collection is the backbone of your wardrobe that gets worn the most but gets the least love.

 

Like your other outfit, there’s a bra for every occasion which means you need to categorize them well.

 

A balconette bra is easily one of the sexiest everyday styles you have sitting in your wardrobe. It cups your breasts gently from below giving them a natural lift and a rounded appearance from the front. Its straps are further apart for a wider and lower cut neck line.

 

If your busts are pointing upwards and outwards, it’s definitely wrong. You should be feeling the confidence now that there’s more volume at the top giving the impression of fuller busts and your boobs should not look like they are popping out.

 

While it’s not the best option for a great cleavage, it’s certainly brings your volume game to the next level and it doesn’t make your boobs look fake – that’s the last thing you want to see happening.

 

A well fitted balconette bra makes the best of your décolletage.

 

How many times have you ditched that pretty off-shoulder dress because you look flat in it? Pretty sure you have abandoned the one with a square neck line as well. That’s not fair!

 

You can definitely pair your balconette bras with some of these tops.

 

When to Wear A Push-up Bra

 

Fact: Boobs come in different shapes and sizes!

Truth: Every pair of boobs is vying for some kind of push-up bra.

 

For most women, they wish for bigger boobies.

 

And for most women, a push-up bra is a holy grail and an affordable way to boost their breast sizes without having to go under the knife.

 

Also for most women, 85 percent are not well fitted in their bras. If you look down and see your nipples saying hi – or spillage around the boundaries of your bra, something must be wrong.

 

Retailers know this.

 

Seeing how you want to be the sexed-up vixen with push-up bras, it’s easy to fall into the trap of wearing the wrong one because every push-up bra does some form of lifting.

 

Know that push-up bras are for everyone – they were designed to give an illusion of bigger busts if you wish your breasts were bigger and they also hold them from drooping like a saggy grandma with the g-force if you wish your boobs were smaller.

 

Push-up bras work in just about everything you wear from a regular t-shirt to a neckline dress. Sounds silly?

 

Sometimes, all you need is the mirror – not the bra. See yourself in front of the mirror before deciding that this is the bra for you. Your boobs should not look like your nipples are being forced outward like a pair of lips desperately trying to kiss.

 

While push-up bras are made to enhance your silhouettes and sizes, it’s essentially made for confidence.

 

A fitted push-up bra magically makes you feel like a supermodel that has all the right proportions and curves and men drooling over your boobs.

 

And when’s best to wear it? It’s when you need that extra shot of self esteem.
