It’s now 2013!! Can you believe it?! I certainly can’t….but another year has passed. People are already busy making resolutions about diet and exercise, eating more vegetables and drinking more water, and I am more dreading going to my (most likely packed) gym this week, (I don’t like being all sweaty and gross among hundreds of strangers). But, I thought I would join in the resolution fun. Here’s my 2013 resolution challenge to everyone: ”2013 is the year I will clean out my lingerie drawer!” This week’s goal is to organize your bras! I know, this is a daunting task. You might have to say good-bye to your favorite thin and worn out “sweatshirt” bra from 10 years ago. And, yes, if a bra doesn’t fit you anymore (no matter how cute it is)…..get rid of it!! I get it. I’m one of those women who doesn’t “notice” my bra is old until the strap just rips out because it’s so disintegrated. (I know…epic confession) So, to help us on our 2013 bra journey, I’ve come up with six bras that we MUST have in our closets (or drawer in my case). Click on the photos for where to buy info.
1. The Strapless Bra
This bra is not just for formal dances. A strapless bra is perfect to wear under layering camisoles in the colder months, and can be worn under all sort of tops in the summer. And most (like this OnGossamer bra to the right, comes with convertible and adjustable straps!)
2. The Nude T-Shirt Bra
This one I like to call “the sensible nude bra”, but it’s a must because you can wear it under anything, especially a classic white tee, and look fabulous. Bonus if it gives you a little push-up (like this Chantelle bra!)
3. The Basic Black Bra
Except there’s nothing basic about it! Make it a demi cup (like this Miss Studio by La Perla bra) to wear under sexy scoop neck tops and rock a little cleavage. Even under a sweater, a black bra always adds a little sexiness to your day.
4. The Lace Bra
It’s a must have bra because it’s so pretty. And, let’s be honest…sometimes you want a little lace to peek through. And get your lace bra in a fun color for some variety (Like this Betsey Johnson one)!
5. The Full on Flirt Bra
This is the bra that need to be seen! It’s much too flirty to keep under your clothes So don’t worry about if it shows through, or the bows are too much…this is your full on flirt bra! (LOVE this bra by Maison Close. It’s much to gorgeous to be hidden!)
6. The Trendy Bra
This might be the least practical bra, but a girl’s gotta feel “on trend”, so why not wear a bra that says you know what’s going on in the fashion world? Try leopard or neon! (These Mimi Holliday bras are prefect!!)
And, because I’m making you throw out your old, but comfy bras, here’s some replacements!
7. The Comfy Bra
Perfect for lounging and relaxing. If you must wear a bra, but want to be completely comfortable, try a Hanky Panky Signature Lace Bralette!
Happy 2013, and I wish everyone well as you organize your bras!!
