Hello! I hope everyone has had a great Tuesday so far!
In today’s post I want to talk about something none of us probably think of in the mornings while we are getting dressed, our undergarments.
Undergarments are essential to looking and feeling great all day long. Undergarments are also essential to ensuring a proper fit. I don’t blame you if underwear is literally the last thing you have on your mind but it really shouldn’t be. The same way a good moisturizer preps the skin for having a flawless complexion undergarments prep our bodies to look flawless day in and day out.
I’m sure by now everyone has heard of SPANX! Don’t freak out just yet. You see SPANX isn’t just shape wear for middle age ladies, I will be the first to admit that the first time I tried them on I was a little hesitant about the effect but to my surprise these are my dirty little secret. I love the versatility of the brand and the comfort level is amazing! Needless to say they do everything they promise and then some! Now I know why celebrities swear by them. SPANX is great because they don’t just make shape wear but also leggings, hosiery, socks, camisoles, and even carry some mommy-to-be friendly pieces.
Another thing to take into consideration is the fit of your undergarments. Keep in mind that size varies from brand to brand. A small panty from Victoria’s Secret may not be the same as a small from Fruit of the Loom. Make sure that you don’t feel tight in any undergarments and most importantly make sure that you do not feel constrained. You should be able to move around freely and without any impediments.
Remember that if you feel good on the inside it will reflect on the outside. Gone are the days of wearing happy face panties with cheetah print bras. When purchasing undergarments make sure to already have something that you can match with it. I am not saying don’t wear the cheetah print bra by all means go on ahead but try wearing it with either a black panty or a nude one.
Talking about color choices I think it is safe to say that perhaps you should never wear black undergarments when wearing white clothing and visa versa. This may seem like common sense but you would be surprised as to how many people neglect the fact that we can all see through their clothes.
Do not forget that sometimes we need to resort to old fashion methods in order to look great. Slips and control tops are sometimes needed. Our mothers and grandmothers always looked flawless in their beautiful dresses therefore maybe using one of their methods or two may not be a bad idea.
Remember to wash your undergarments carefully. Some can be made of very delicate fabrics therefore always read the instructions on the label. Sometimes bras and corsets specifically need to hand washed. Yes I know it may be tedious but this will ensure that your undergarments always looks great and last you for a very long time.
Lastly is my usual tip, simply stick to what makes you feel comfortable. Not everyone is made to wear thongs and not everyone is made to wear full briefs. Find what makes you feel great and comfy.
