When it comes to fashion, what’s inside matters just as much as what’s outside. Case in point: A pair of wrong bra can easily ruin a dressy blouse, a chic white T-shirt, and a gorgeous strapless top. Here are five fashion fails that can be avoided by wearing the right bra.
A common problem of those who love light-colored tops, it happens when colorful bras call more than their fair share of attention. If you don’t have a bra that’s remotely the same shade of your top, wear one that matches your skin tone instead.
For Filipinas with fairer skin, the Mindy Underwire Brassiere is indistinguishable under white clothes yet still fashionable in a simple nude color with scallop-cut cups and cute straps. Tanner ladies, meanwhile, may choose the champagne-colored Mira Underwire Lace Brassiere that complements their golden complexion. Morenas will find just the right support in their perfect nude with the mocha-hued Marinella Underwire Full Cup Lace Brassiere.
The VBL or visible bra line occurs when the edges of the bra poke through the clothing. It is not as obvious as its colorful cousin The See-through, but it’s just as noticeable.
To avoid this fashion boo boo, ladies are advised to choose the Salma Non-wire T-shirt Bra whose smooth cups work best especially when wearing clothes that hug the bust. Those wearing sleeveless or off-the-shoulder blouses or tops and don’t want their bra straps to be visible may opt for the Regina Underwire Convertible Brassiere whose curve-hugging underwired cups and adjustable and removable straps let users wear anything from halter tops to square-cut tops.
When busting out the low-cut tops, ensure that the décolletage is accentuated tastefully. This happens when the bust spills over the top edge of the bra because the intimate wear is too tight, creating a sloppy overflow. In extreme cases, ill-fitting bras can result in The Ledge, which makes breasts look like an unnatural ledge pushed up from the chest.
For just the right lift, the Simonette Underwire Push-up bra from Avon Fashions gives the bust a boost along with extra support with its snug, underwired cup. For bustier women, the Cristina Underwire Shaping bra gives extra support while providing better breast contouring.
The Wet Look
The underboob sweat is uncomfortable and when visible, can be embarrassing. Deal with warmer days by putting on a breathable bra like the Willow Breathable Bra made of mesh fabric that allows air to flow freely, cooling wearers down especially in target areas where they sweat the most.
A bra that doesn’t fit can restrict movement, require constant adjustment, and even result in back problems. These can all be fixed by getting the right fit and support. All bras from Avon, such as the Lauren Nude Non-Wire Bra comes in a wide range of sizes and proportions. The comfortable, non-wire lace bra ensures maximum comfort.
The aforementioned bras are available at Avon.
