This past New Year’s Eve, Amethyst and I attend a "black tie optional" affair in DC.
Now, I am not going to use today’s post to rant about some folks definition of black tie or even optional, that is another post all on it’s own.
No, today I want to discuss appropriate undergarments. The foundation pieces of every outfit one wears.
At the party there were some very lovely dresses, and sadly most of them were completely ruined by the incorrect undergarments. Panty lines, muffin tops caused by incorrect girdle or panty hose sizes, panty hose waist bands, bra straps falling out, and the worst of the lot, no panty hose or girdles thus displaying ever dimple and bump under the dresses. Nothing ruins a look faster or worse than these. And it’s not just evening clothes. The proper undergarments can make or break any outfit in your closet. Every outfit we wear starts with the foundation pieces we put on first.
So, with all of that being said, I would like to share some products and web sites. Please add to the list if you have a great discovery that needs to be shared with all of us girly girls!http://www.spanx.com/
- these are amazing! Comfortable to wear, and really effective in creating smooth sleek lines under any kind of clothing, whether it’s evening wear or daily work attire.
www.bravissimo.com/ - for the larger busted among us. It is amazing to me how many women in the US have no idea of their true bra size. A truly good fitting bra can completely change how your clothes look on you. And of course, the correct bra for the garment you are wearing.http://www.hollywoodfashiontape.com/
