The Perfect Fit

For today's post, I teamed up with Kohl's to give you a spring/summer bra guide.  Yes, BRAS!  As I've gotten older, I've learned the importance of choosing the right one for specific tops and dresses.  I used to always wear the same type, but not anymore.  I'm going to show you 5 different spring looks that I have recently worn and explain which bra I wore for each look and why.  It's all about finding the perfect fit

Strapless

I couldn't wear a regular bra with this crop top because of the way the top is cut in the front.
I used to hate wearing strapless bras because I couldn't find any that still had great support.  This one offers a cup-specific lift and support with an inner silicone-lined band for a stay-in-place fit.  It also comes with adjustable straps too.  I got this in both nude and black since they will work well under anything.  So if you are looking for a new strapless bra, this is a good option to start with! 

Racerback 

Maidenform Pure Genius Lace T-Back (here)

Initially when I got this dress I was just planning to do a strapless.  But when I came across this t-back style bra, I knew it would be a better option since it would provide extra coverage in front.  It has seamless contoured cups with very little padding and it's extremely comfortable, especially in the back.  It's a great fit too!    


T-Shirt 



Simply Vera, Vera Wang The T-Shirt Bra (similar)

I heard so much talk about t-shirt bras but never thought to give one a try until recently.  Now I'm hooked! They are SO comfortable and work great with thin shirts like this one from the Peter Som x Kohls collection.  It has seamless full coverage padded cups but it doesn't look or feel bulky which I love.  It offers such a smooth silhouette. I couldn't find the one I got online, but the link above is for a similar style. 

Plunging/ Smooth Back



Warners Back To Smooth Lift Wireless (here

I chose this bra for a few different reasons.  For one, it's cut low in the front making it the perfect choice for tops like this with a plunging neckline.  It's wire free which really intrigued me since all of my other bras have an underwire.  I was surprised by the support and lift it still gave me.  And the best part is the wide back.  Don't you hate when a bra gives you that "back fat"?  I know I do.  But with this bra, you no longer have to worry about that.  

Demi 



Simply Vera, Vera Wang Lace Microfiber Demi Bra (here)

This one works as a great every day bra.  The comfort is amazing and there is no bulk, which is why I wore mine with this white tank.  For me, it's very similar to a t-shirt bra.  This one has a low cut design with seamless cups.  Demi bras have a half cup for low coverage, medium support and extra cleavage.  

80% of women are not even wearing the correct bra size, which is crazy!  Kohls offers a great measuring system in case you want to double check.  They really do have such a huge selection of bras to choose from and all at an affordable price.  I hope you liked today's post :) 

Cheers to the weekend!
