The Expert Dos and Don'ts Of Buying A Shelf Bra
DO - Try
on different styles - You
might just surprise yourself. Trying on a variety of styles, from
black pleather, to white frilly lace bras will give you an idea of
what works for you and what doesn’t.
You might typically buy soft
and sweet see through lingerie, but will be amazed to see how vampy
and provocative you feel in something edgier. “Don’t knock it
‘til you’ve tried it” is the motto for see thru
DO - Find
the right fit - Look
for an open up bra that fits properly around your lower bust and rib cage, so you can
maximize the lift and oomph that it offers.
This open bra style
doesn't have padded cups to help boost your bust like a more
traditional push up bra, so make sure the other elements like the
straps and the bra band fit snugly, but not too tightly, to give
your girls the support and va-va-voom they need.
DO - Buy
a matching bottom - Sometimes
open cup bras are sold as part of a set, so treat yourself to the
matching undies or garter belts that may come with it.
Whether it’s a pair of
sexy bikini panties, a garter or a matching sheer robe, you'll get
more wear out of it, plus it's a nicer and more luxurious look in a matching ensemble.
You’ll also be more likely to enjoy an open bust bra if you’re not
rummaging through your lingerie drawer trying to find something to
match at the last minute.
DON'T - Obsess
over your body flaws - A
shelf bra puts you on full display, which is why it’s such a
sizzling open lingerie style, but when we’re alone in the
dressing room we can easily forget the sultry mood we’re trying to
create and start picking apart how we look.
You might not love the
shape of your breasts, or think you have flabby arms, but the dressing room is not
the time to start worrying about it.
Think of how you look from your
beau’s perspective. All he’s going to see is the bombshell in a
barely-there sexy bra and panties before him - not your c-section scar or that little hint of cellulite.
DON'T - Set
yourself up to look bad - Lingerie
looks great in the bedroom, especially with a little candlelight and sizzling chemistry in the air.
In a dressing room under florescent
lights it can be another story.
If you show up to shop with greasy
hair, hairy legs and stand in front of the mirror in your shelf bra,
granny panties and a pair of sports socks, of course your inner
critic will start to scream hone in on what a hot mess you
Instead, prep yourself for success ahead of time. Wear a basic black thong, shave, put on a little
makeup and give yourself a fighting chance in that dressing room.
You’ll be much more likely to feel good about trying on and buying
sexy lingerie if you feel pretty and pampered, and prepped for success!
DON'T - Take yourself too seriously - Remember,
life is too short to take yourself seriously. Lingerie should be
easy and exciting, not serious and secretive.
A shelf bra is fun,
frivolous and crazy sexy. And, like most things in life, the moment
you start OVER thinking something sexy and fun,
is the moment you’ll start talking yourself out of it.
So, "Relax Max!" Go
in there with a playful and provocative attitude, and keep your honey
in mind while you shop, instead of getting too much in your head and
starting to doubt and judge yourself.
Just have fun with sexy
lingerie - it’s meant for pleasure and pampering and making
you feel like the lingerie goddess that you truly are.
