A Girls Guide To: Bras

Quick Update: Hello my loves! Thank you for all baring with me as I have been away on different trips and such lately. I miss all of you terribly and am trying my hardest to make time and make these posts for you all. This is a new series I am giving a shot and, depending on my response, I will keep doing it. Your feedback is always appreciated my darlings. Thanks for being the best fans and readers I could have ever asked for.

PS: Want your name and blog link to be featured in my next "A Girl's Guide To Fashion" post? Simply subscribe and leave me a comment below letting me know what you'd like me to talk about next! I'll pick someone at random when I post these and will let you know if you've been chosen.

Ladies, we all know that bras are a necessity in one's closet. And today's post will be giving you some tips and tricks on how to pick out the perfect bra that not only fits, but is quality, has cuteness, as well as practicality all at the same time. 

First things first... Find your size. This is something that most women fail to do, and instead spend countless hours trying on bras that might not even be close to their size. It will save you time (Because really, who enjoys trying them on?) Many department stores do this, like Macy's, for example. 

Where should I start shopping? When I was younger, I made the mistake of shopping for bras at any place who sold them cheapest. And as I've grown older, I've come to realize how stupid I was for doing so. Please please please, do not go to Walmart and do not go to Target. They are cheap, never last long, and will not be as flattering as better and more quality brands. Although it may be a bit pricier, splurging a bit on undergarments is something I truly believe in. These are the base and the staple to your outfits.

Some good places to buy bras:
-Victoria's Secret

Tips & Tricks While Shopping?

-Find a bra that is going to feel good and fit well. Although it's hard at times (Especially in Victoria's Secret), try not to get overwhelmed by the cuteness factor and instead find something that is comfortable and something that you'll actually wear without it hurting you. Now if it's cute and comfortable? You have a win win situation my friend.

-Be aware of color and texture. If you're going for practicality here, make sure and have one skin color and one black bra. When you start getting into crazy colors, patterns, and textures it's a different story. Because let me tell you honey, wearing a hot pink lacy printed bra under a white tee shirt or tank top is not going to look good on a day to day basis. Fun undergarments like these are definitely great to have as well, but just make sure that you have the basics in your closet first.

-Bring a t-shirt with you. After trying on your bra put it on. This will help you see if it's going to look good and flatter you (Shape wise) under simple shirts like these.

That's it for today's post my loves, I hope you enjoyed and were able to learn a few things about finding the perfect bra. Doing so will change your life, I assure you. Good luck to you all!

Stay Beautiful
