Sorry, but I’ve got no choice but to get a little bit intimate here. We’re talking bras and undies … your smalls (insert giggle here).
I have a beautiful collection of gorgeous lingerie sets, which I do love, but I find that they really don’t work under all my clothes. Every day.
Basic everyday underwear may not be the fun and flirty option (and if you have a partner they will probably poo poo your need for basics) but we all know it is essential to have lingerie on hand that will work under fitted tops, tees and dresses. A pretty, lacy bra peeping out from under a top when worn on purpose as part of the outfit looks great; a pretty, lacy bra visible through a business shirt, not so great.
So in my quest to fill the essentials side of my lingerie drawer, I’ve trialled the new Fabulous Fit bra ($59.95) from Berlei.
It’s kind of like the ultimate t-shirt bra and Berlei has created two shapes for you. If you’re on the petite side, go for Fabulous Fit Boost (10A-16DD). It features a plunging centre front with customised lifting and shaping for your size (it can jump you up at least one size). Convertible straps take you from halterneck to racerback.
If you’re voluptuous in the bust department, Fabulous Fit Coverage (10B-16E) is for you. There’s a little more coverage and heaps of support. Crossover straps and a clip on the shoulder strap with dual adjustment slides give you lots of options for under clothes.
The big plus for me (in both styles) is the seam-free moulding and microfibre fabric which works a treat – even under a fitted, white tank.
Oh, and the bra works perfectly with the Berlei Barely There range of briefs … I like the Jeanious ones.
