The Three “C’s of Bra Fit – “Cut, Color, and Comfort”
Cyndi Lauper was right when she penned the song and words “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” This certainly applies to the world of bras as it relates to finding new options beyond beige. I came from a background in the legal field and I thought rocking black and white in an outfit was incorporating color. Now I am in my new world of intimates and watch out world, I am slaying color! Daily! Many of my friends and new clients were also stuck in the “just nude” club. Are you? Let me inspire you to see new options.
Spring is here and I wanted to give some advice on what I call the Three C’s of picking a great bra. Let’s review:
“The Cut” – What makes a woman feel amazing in her intimate apparel, especially her bra is the details. When a bra has a design detail along with color, the combination is a win. The Bijou Longline Molded Cup Bra is a perfect example of beauty + design. The longline allows you to have the corset affect, so wearing a beautiful gown or an everyday oxford blouse goes to another level. This bra goes beyond fit…this is an elevated LIFT. Bras are now being made to be seen and a bustier style bra is a go to for a fashionista edge underneath it all.
“The Color” – Take the limits off and look beyond black and beige bras. The amount of color available now in bras in underwear is countless. Choose from prints, to pastels to powerful punches of deluxe shades and hues of color. Freya Pulse Plunge in luscious lavender trimmed in citron is one of The Bra Spa’s Faves. This is an example where cut meets color. This cut and sewn bra gives a girl lift in the cups, and the sheer cups are light and sexy. Don’t be afraid to rock a bra with seams. Depending on how it’s designed, it can be worn underneath a blouse, layers or a jacket. Remember, just like fashion, bras are an enhancement to your wardrobe.
“Comfort” – If your bra is not comfortable and stylish, don’t waste your money or clog your underwear drawer with another misfire. Looking good and having support should never feel like torture. A bra is made to be worn for hours to support you, and wearing one just because it’s pretty doesn’t work anymore, especially at higher price points. We specialize in helping women to find what fits and really works with their body type and daily life and style solution. If you simply don’t want an underwire, there are bras in color and no wire such as Leading Lady soft cup front close bras. The bras are available in a variety of colors.
