“How firm a foundation” aren’t just words sung on Sunday in a hymn. The foundations we wear under our clothes are pretty important – especially for women. They give us good, uplifting support that we need every day.
I asked the wonderful Deborah Croisant, owner of Muse Intimates, for a few suggestions on what to consider when purchasing a new bra, or as Bette Milder so aptly sang in the movie, Beaches, an over the shoulder boulder holder.
A few tips:
- Have your bra professionally fitted. Up to 80 percent of us are walking around in the wrong size!
- If those pesky straps are slipping off your shoulders, it’s time for a new bra.
- Don’t wear the same bra more than two days in a row – they should be washed after the second wear.
- If you’re wearing a white bra under a white shirt, go with a nude one instead.
Did you know the right bra can make you look like you’ve lost as much as 10 lbs.? That’s pretty uplifting, wouldn’t you agree?
