As preteens women everywhere imagined their first bra as being classy and oh so grown up. We thought that as soon as we put on the dainty lace device we would be elevated into a new category or female; a sophisticated sexy woman. Then the time came when we had to fight to hook it from behind, had to learn the trick of the front hook and shimmy it around to the back. We realized that under wire bites into the underarm, they never seem to fit correctly, and lets just ignore the red lines we’ve all experienced under our breasts. The reality of the bra finally sunk in, for me personally around age 16 when it became apparent that I was never going to look like a runway model in the chest department. So we give up those old preconceived notions of a perfect bust, and started focusing on something we might have the ability to control. Finding pretty bras.Lets face it, isn’t as easy as we thought.
The adventure of bra shopping can be almost as stressful as black friday shopping in the mall.
It seems like there are millions of sizes, shapes, colors, styles, and even more that promise to enhance your size and shape perfectly. Should you use a strapless with that little black dress? Would a sports bra work with that green tank? Do you really need a bra for every color cami? Will a water bra ever pop in the most awkward moment?
How many of us have made the mistake of buying a maternity bra, then being lost in confusion about the clamp that opens to reveal the whole breast? Maybe that’s just a airing out technique? There are so many questions when wandering the intimates aisle that its easy to give up and pick the first thing in your size that you see, then run to the register hoping the cashier doesn’t look too closely at the pink push up bra with frogs plastered on it that you just bought.
So the search for the pretty bra continues!
The upside of so many options is that there is the perfect bra out there for everyone, of all styles and shapes. There is something to slim, something to boost, and something to simply keep things where they belong. A few tips for this huge endeavor ; Try it on. Just because it looks like it will fit, doesn’t mean it will. There’s nothing worse than getting home and finding out the hard way that its too big or small, then having to return it? No thank you. If you don’t absolutely love it in the store, you wont wear it at home, unless its laundry day that is. Check pricing options. Chances are there is a cheaper version of the exact same thing you fell in love with. Last but not least, it is never a bad idea to be professionally sized at a specialty store. This will help you in your shopping later on and is usually a free service. Good luck and happy boosting to all my fellow women.
