It is time to talk about our unmentionables. Ladies, if you are uninspired by what's in your lingerie repertoire than you have most likely fallen into the slump that many of us have lapsed into. Most of us hate to admit it, but long gone are the days of matching bra and panty sets, pretty and impractical have seemingly gone by the waste side. Well, we say, shake things up and it's time to shop for the pretty and practical. There are so many great lingerie options that are both functional, fashionable and have a positive impact on your appearance.
Turns out wearing the right undergarments not only elevates your self-confidence but greatly affects the way your clothes fit, your level of comfort and most of all how you feel about presenting yourself to the world. Let's focus on your bras, shall we?
You'll want to take full stock in what you have compared to the clothes you wear. Fan of the cold shoulder? Then you'll need a bra with convertible straps to get the best look without dreadful strap peekaboo. Try Warner’s Play It Cool Wire-Free Contour Bra. We love that it offers a slight lift without creating unwanted cleavage. Plus the technology calls and wicks aways moisture when needed. Maybe you are a t-shirt collector? For an undetectable lift, seamless support and wire-free bliss, we are rocking the Invisible Bliss bra. All day comfort? Yes,please. And everyone needs a bra that they can throw on without having to think about it after that. The Easy Does It collection offers wire-free comfort, inner panel for side support and a unique all-over stretch fabric to accommodate your unique shape. Warner's has many new colors just in time for your fall bra refresh!
But what happens when you get a new stash? How do you keep them functional and long-lasting? Turns out there's a reason why your bras are called delicates. They needed to be handled as such. We have a few tips to help you care for your delicates with ease.
Tip 1: Wash For the best results, hand wash your bras with a silk and blends-friendly detergent like The Laundress’s Delicate Wash, to remove oils and stains and maintain a silky touch. Don’t forget to hook your bra and place it in a mesh bag to protect straps from stretching and hooks from snagging other clothes. Find a sturdy mesh bag like this one. We love that this full set offers a separate bag for all of your various delicates.
Tip 2: Dry To keep the shape and elasticity, always hang bras to dry by the piece in between the cups (who knew it was called the gorse!). Avoid hanging bras to dry by the straps as the wet cups will weigh the garment downward. (Whoops! I always do that-must drag out the drying rack from now on!) and ladies, don’t try to ever try to wring out wet bras!
Tip 3: Repeat Repeat wears are more than okay! The washing machine tends to wear out the elasticity of a bra, so it's best to wash every few wears.
