I’ve been trying to avoid this topic like the plague! I get a little squirmy when I have to talk about the undergarments we wear. This is a blog for women so I’m assuming that only women are reading but it’s still hard to talk about shapewear and bras.
For women our age and women who have areas they want to hide shapewear is a must! And I’m not talking about our grandmother and mothers’ girdles. If you have a girdle throw it away!
Shapewear has come a long way! It’s more comfortable and works better than ever!
Many of you have asked about how to hide back fat, muffin tops, love handles etc. This is your answer!
Identify the area that bothers you and buy shapewear that will hide those areas.
Charla Krupp from How Not to Look Old says, “Shapewear is the hardest working pieces in our wardrobe. They lift! they smooth! They mold! They shape! They minimize! They hide ten pounds! You’d be surprised how shapewear can open up new wardrobe possibilities.”
Now for Bras: When was the last time you were fitted for a bra? Most of us are wearing bras that are either too tight or too loose. The best thing we can do is let a professional bra fitter measure us and find our correct bra size.
When picking out a bra we need the right cup size, the right band, and the right straps. The most popular bra color is white but we really only need two colors: nude and black. White bras can be seen under a white t-shirt. Buy nude!
If you’re like me, I want to spend the least amount of money on shapewear and bras because no one sees them (except my husband) but we’re at the age that we need to invest in good shapewear and bras.
The best place to start is to clean out your lingerie drawer. Keep the good items and throw the rest away. Mine drawer is full of bras and shapewear that I never wear. So guess where I’m headed?
Do you wear shapewear? How long has it been since you bought a new bra?
Beauty For the Heart~~1 Corinthians 6:19-20 reminds us that our bodies should honor God.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
Have a blessed day!
