Last week, I shared with you tips for getting the right bra size and fit. Tips that I have learned from 123underwear. I was one of the majority of women who was wearing the wrong size bra. Be sure to check out Does Your Bra Fit? if you missed it.
After making sure that I had the right size, I also spoke to a 123underwear consultant about what I want in a bra. I wanted padding, lift, and comfort.
They decided that the Calvin Klein Seductive Comfort Customized Lift Bra would be one that would meet my needs. It’s a pretty lilac blush color and retails for $48.
Now, here’s where I get honest with you. When I was measuring myself according to the 123underwear guidelines, and kept getting 32C, I was tempted to still tell them 34B. Because that was what I was used to wearing. And my bras seem to fit okay…. I was nervous.
But, then I figured that this would be a total missed opportunity if I was working on Project #BraHappy and didn’t give their advice an honest shot. And the worst that could happen would be that the bra didn’t fit and they’d have to send me another size.
Surprisingly, the bra fit really well. It met all of the fit guidelines that I talked about last week and was super comfortable. If only I could replace all of my other bras now! After wearing the right size, I realized just how wrong the others ones are.
I was also sent the matching panty: Calvin Klein Seductive Comfort Hipster, $28. What I really like about this set, aside from actually fitting right, is that it’s very comfortable and can be worn underneath my usual mom-uniform of jeans/yoga pants and a t-shirt AND that it’s sexy. Sexy comfort is a total win. If only they made me look just like this underwear model….
Next week, I’ll be back with the final week of Project #BraHappy with some tips on what every woman should have in their underwear drawer and with a giveaway for a bra consultation and a gift certificate to 123underwear.
This is a sponsored campaign on behalf of 123underwear. While I was provided with tips about bra fit and the garments mentioned in this post, all other thoughts and opinions are my own.
