2-13-17 THIS WEEK: A Bra That Fits

February 13, 2017, 2:02 pm by MSP

 

If the bra fits, wear it! Well, that's the problem. Too many women are not wearing a bra that fits properly. Not only is this uncomfortable (slipping straps, or a band that digs into your flesh) this is not a good look!

Poor-fitting bras are everywhere! In fact, up to 80% of women are wearing the WRONG bra! Wrong in size, or wrong in style--or both!!!

 

A poor fitting bra is not only uncomfortable--it's unflattering!

 

Ask yourself these fit questions:

Does your bra band ride up in the back? 

Does your breast tissue spill over or bulge under the cup? 

Do your cups pucker or gap? OR, do your cups runneth over?

Do your straps slip and slide?

Do your straps dig into your shoulders?

Does the wire poke your skin? 

 

Did you know? A woman's bra size changes up to 7 times in her lifetime. From young adulthood, to motherhood, and then later in her mature years...a woman's bust changes over time. Of course, gaining weight or losing weight will also change your bust size and shape.

 

When was the last time you checked to see if your bra size and style are correct for your current body?

 

What's the best way to measure for the right fit? Finding the right bra (in size and style) is paramount to your comfort and to your overall appearance. However, there are several techniques used to measure bra fit. This week at MissusSmartyPants.com all 5 Personal Profiles will get the complete "Guide to Selecting Your Right Bra". Use this article to guide you to your perfect bra style and fit.

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

 

This week’s Style Mission: UPDATE YOUR SHOES.

Invest this spring season a pair of stylish flats!

Heels hurt! There's only one thing that can save your tired tootsies: A cute pair of flats! I'll bet you love your stylish heels (I know I do) but they’re only fine for a couple hours and then you've got to get realistic. I have lots of cute heels, but I can only wear them for 4 hours, tops. I also have several pairs of “dinner” heels. Those are the sassy ones that I can only wear them out to dinner-then back to the car—on my way back to the car my feet start screaming “OFF”! What a SYSter really needs are a couple of cute flats to pull out on these occasions.

Last week, I went to Charleston SC and did a lot of walking on old cobble-stoned streets. I showed my style, yes I did. But I was quickly reminded that several pairs of practical flats are a must.

I took two pairs of flats with me and ended up wearing them both! I wore my bronze flats the first day, and my black patent-leather low wedges (1 ½ inch heel) the next. I also took a pair of “dinner” shoes and wore them when we went out to dinner the first night.

I encourage my SYSters to “Show Your Style” but PLEASE don’t be uncomfortable! Stash a pair of cute flats in your car, office or tote bag—just in case you have to extend your day or run errands on the way home.

You’ll still look stylish if you are wearing cute flats instead of a uncomfortable in a high-heeled shoe. However, you’ll look a bit silly if you replace your heels with clunky white sneakers.

A stylish pair of flats will be a real workhorse in your wardrobe! They work equally well with a pencil skirt or dress slacks—just like they will with your weekend attire.

Love, Leslie MSP

We need more cute comfy shoes (like these) for our everyday wardrobes!

Can't wait, spring is around the corner...

What SYSters are Saying

 

DEAR MSP,

I just wanted you to know that I have had more compliments and owned fewer clothes than ever before since I joined you.  I love the liberating feeling of having “permission” to ditch clothes which don’t make me look or feel good even if they are not worn out and they still fit me!
 
I did your style mission about scarves. I wore one with a black animal print which I had tried to wear the week before but with THAT outfit it made me look too “dumpy” for some reason – proportions all wrong (although I am still amazed that I was able to notice this for myself!).  It was left hanging on the wardrobe handle ready to go in my next charity shop bag.  However, when Friday came around and I was off to work in a plain black v neck jumper and jeans – it was just the thing to lift my look.  My boyfriend even commented that I looked very “French” and stylish and I also received several compliments at work…on a Friday!  
 
Thank you for all of your help and wise words.  I have never been known for taking care of my appearance or putting together outfits – and now it is becoming part of my daily routine – helped by the fact that I lay my clothes out the night before………
 
Thank you so much

DEAR MRS SMARTY PANTS,

I've been a subscriber for two years now and many of the testimonials that I read on your Tues. mailing sound just like me: learning new things and feeling very happy about it.  

But right now I just want to say that your MSP e-mails every week are just plain FUN!  I don't have a whole lot of time to spend on myself (I homeschool my sons, have a part-time business at home, and am active in my church), but I really look forward to reading MSP.  It's my down time . . . my kick back time . . . my "Me" time!   
 
Thanks again, Sandra

P.S.  Someday I'll get around to sending you some pictures so you can see how you've helped to change me--for the better!
