Bras and underwear, do they matter? In our definitely biased opinion, YES THEY DO.
They are the first thing you put on, the next-to-skin layer, the make or break of any outfit, and most importantly, the source of your comfort and support.
So take a step back, and take a good hard look at the items in your top drawer. Do they spark joy? Do they empower you to wear any outfit? Take on any task? Make you feel comfortable and confident? If the answer is no, then we are here to help upgrade your top drawer.
As the bra and underwear experts, we’ve broken it down to all of the essential items you need to build out a top drawer that will elevate your everyday.
Must-Have #1: A Plunge Bra
Perfect under any neckline, an uplift plunge bra gives you a flattering v-neck that accentuates your cleavage for a natural lift, but with enough coverage to still hold you in.
Must-Have #2: A Wireless Bra
When movement is your all-day priority, a wireless bra gives you all-day support with a little more flexibility. Remember, just because there is no wire, does not mean there is no support.
Must-Have #3: A Strapless Bra
When sleeves aren’t an option, the perfect strapless is just what you need. However, a strapless bra should not be synonymous with a band that is constantly falling down. A truly great, well-fitting strapless bra will stay up and support you through any outfit, dance move or occasion.
Must-Have #4: A T-Shirt Bra
When you can’t make up your mind about what to wear, a T-Shirt bra is always a good choice. Smooth memory foam forms to your skin for zero bra lines; no slip-straps and scratch-free band eliminate constant fidgeting; and perfectly fitting support keeps you comfortable all day long
Must-Have #5: A Balconette
To give your style an extra kick-start, a balconette bra can you give the extra boost you need. A little more vivacious, a balconette bra stays invisible under clothing, but if you want to show it off, it gives you a tasteful opportunity to do so.
Must-Have #6: The Perfect Pair
Whether you match your underwear to your bra, or are just looking for comfort, the quality of the underwear you wear is important. Whatever coverage you choose, make sure to pick a pair that hugs your curves without digging in to eliminate any excess bulk under clothing and VPLs, and ones designed with a cotton gusset to keep things breathable.
