It’s amazing how much importance we give to what we wear on the outside. The fact that we ignore our underwear so much, makes me wonder if we have ever had our priorities right. When it comes to underwear, we may often think that anything goes. But, as women we must realize that inner comfort and style is as important as what lies outside. Whether or not you have a perfect body shape, doesn’t matter. What matters is that you carry gracefully what you have. And, your underwear (and now shape belts too) helps you do that.It’s amazing how much importance we give to what we wear on the outside. The fact that we ignore our underwear so much, makes me wonder if we have ever had our priorities right. When it comes to underwear, we may often think that anything goes. But, as women we must realize that inner comfort and style is as important as what lies outside. Whether or not you have a perfect body shape, doesn’t matter. What matters is that you carry gracefully what you have. And, your underwear (and now shape belts too) helps you do that.
We may often overlook this aspect, but it’s time to correct ourselves and our ways to look beautiful. Paying attention to your underwear is as essential as paying attention to your outfits. What you wear inside defines the shape of your body to a much larger extent than what your outfit does. So, here are the 4 kinds of underwear that you must own. It is not very difficult to know what bra size will you fit you the best.
1. Assorted Bras
Well, it sort of goes without saying that you must own a couple of bras. But, the tricky part is to find out which ones. It is sad to see that so many women still wear the wrong bra. All you need to take is a measuring tape and measure around two places while wearing a non padded bra or no bra at all – around the fullest part of your breasts; and around the bad (the rib where the band wraps). To calculate your bra size with these two measures use this Victoria’s Secret Bra Size Calculator.
Once you know your bra size, make sure you don’t stack the same kind of stuff. You do want to have some daily t-shirt bras, a balconette bra for the deep cleavage dresses, some lacies if you please, and a nude bra for not-so-opaque dresses and blouses.
2. Assorted Panties
Yes, there must be varieties here as well. You need basic panties (briefs, hipsters, or bikini cuts) for everyday, in basic colors. Apart from these, you need to own a thong or a g-string to go with body hugging dresses, leggings and yoga pants. You may also want to have a few pairs of high waist panties to wear under high waist pants. If you mostly shape pants of thermogenic pants, you can skip high waist panties. If you wear short dresses, boy shorts become an essential for you. Do keep more than a pair in your wardrobe in that case.
3. Basic Hosiery
Sheer pantyhose, fishnet tights, opaque black tights, nude stockings – these items from the hosiery are evergreen. As classy as they are sultry, they are a must-own by women who possess the love for dresses and pencil skirts. The good thing about such hosiery is that it never goes out of trend.
Pair black office heels and a pencil skirt with sheer or black pantyhose and you become office chique. Fishnets can even make the most mundane of your everyday dresses look interesting.
4. Shape Belts/Shapewear
The 21st century bears testimony to what a super duper success shapewear especially shape belts have been. Women all over the world are wearing these and feeling great about their bodies. Now, whether or not you have the perfect body shape, this kind of wear makes you look great any given day. Belts, pants, vests and even thermogenic jackets are a genius way to make you look in perfect shape.
This stuff is revolutionary underwear indeed. You can wear it under almost anything you can imagine, except for a bikini, maybe (chuckle chuckle!). It doesn’t cost you a fortune because you just need to buy one piece that lasts for years. Now, in fact, shapewear also comes in thermogenic fabrics that help you burn fat as you wear it during your workout or otherwise.
Needless to say, these 4 kinds of underwear actually help you portray your body as you want and help you get the right kind of foundation for the outfits that you wear. This is why you must never stick to one kind of underwear for all your clothes.
