Where ‘comfidence’ is the goal
The best part of the day for a woman, as portrayed by a lot of memes, is the moment she gets to take off her bra. While the joke is funny and relatable, I realized from last Saturday’s Inspiring ComforTalks on Facebook Live that it should not be the case. Looking back, intimate wear does contribute to a woman’s wellbeing as it creates a domino effect in the different aspects of her life.
Adjusting loose bra straps and loosening the occasional tight grip on the ribcage while performing other activities can make a woman feel conscious, insecure, and uncomfortable. These seemingly trivial things distract her from being 100 percent in the zone and functioning at her best in important moments of her life.
A woman then should seek comfort to achieve the confidence she needs. Comfort, in terms of intimate wear, comes in different forms. As discussed by the talk’s host Issa Litton and social media personalities Melissa Benipayo and Pat Bobadilla, colors, form, material breathability, and right measurements top their bra criteria.
More than anyone, the woman wearing the bra should be able to appreciate its color. Colors trigger emotions and the joy of picking the right one is very personal.
Bras should feel like a second skin and celebrate the uniqueness of a woman’s body. Ill-fitting ones may lead to constant fidgeting and adjustments and can affect a woman’s posture.
It is important for the bra’s fabric to have the right amount of moisture-wicking properties to keep a woman dry and odor-free.
Getting the right fit is like a signal for a woman to dream big and hustle. She is free to embrace herself.
Pat learned about comfort the hard way as she was used to giving it up just to look good. “The right bra makes all the difference. You’ll feel comfortable, supported, and ready to tackle whatever obstacles lay in front of you,” Mel said.
The power women can both attest that in anything, confidence does come from within.
Heritage lingerie brand Triumph offers a wide range of non-wired bras for worry-free support, security, and style.
