During the festive season, you might be tempted to spend your money on high-heeled shoes, new outfits and sparkly handbags, but don’t neglect your lingerie draw. There are many different bras available these days, so flaunt your assets in style and choose a garment for every occasion.
A day of ice skating
If you’re going ice skating this year with family and friends, you’ll need a boulder holder to support your chest. While a sports bra is great for a day of activity, a t-shirt bra can give you more shape and look natural underneath cotton or tight-fitting garments. They’re also ideal if you’ve recently had breast augmentation surgery or a reconstruction procedure, as tend not to agitate wounds or scars.
A day round the house
Eating mince pies in your pyjamas and lounging round the house is a great way to spend the Christmas holidays. If you don’t want to let it all hang out however, a non-wired bra is ideal for those cosy winter days. The structured cups offer shape and support, but you won’t have any underwire to contend with. This should make your lazy mornings and sleepy afternoons more comfortable, whilst ensuring your breasts look their best.
A night on the town
Your outfit will usually determine what type of bra you wear for a night on the town. If you opt for a low-cut dress, for instance, a plunge bra will ensure no material can be seen. Similarly, if you go for a boob tube or off the shoulder number, a strapless bra is ideal. Many lingerie garments come with removable straps or ones that can be turned into a halter-neck style, so it’s worth shopping around.
A meal with the in-laws
While you should probably keep your Wonderbra in the draw, there’s no reason why you can’t get make the most of your breasts. If you’re wearing a v-necked top or a jumper or a scooped neckline, a balconette bra will give you a full cleavage, without making your look like you have had a boob job to improve your appearance. If you have big bosoms however, and want to keep them under control, minimising lingerie is widely available.
There are many styles and designs to choose from this festive season, just make sure you attend a bra fitting before making a purchase, as the right cup and back size can enhance your breasts.
