5-11-20 THIS WEEK: A Bra Update

May 12, 2020, 7:51 am by MSP


When is the last time you updated your bra? Has it been awhile...perhaps longer than a year? A bra update can quite literally be an uplifting experience. And...we all know a well supported bust is a more youthful looking bust. 

What is the best bra style for you? Well, that depends. There are many variables. That's what this week's article, "A Bra Updated" is all about. Finding your best style for your shape, and figuring out what your fit problems are; and what causes them. For example, slipping straps, why straps dig in, why an underwire is uncomfortable for you-and so much more. Decipher these fit issues and solve them once and for all.

If the bra fits, wear it! Well, that's the crux of the problem. Too many women are not wearing a bra that fits them properly. Not only is this uncomfortable (slipping straps, or a band that digs into your flesh) it usually means your bra style is not the right one for you. 

Poor-fitting bras are everywhere! Up to 80% of women are wearing the WRONG bra! Could this be you?! Could yours be 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? 


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 natually changes over time. Of course, gaining weight or losing weight will also change your bust size and shape. 

What's your best bra style for your shape?

MSP's Weekly Style Mission



Invest in 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, max. 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 wear all the time.

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 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!



What SYSters are Saying


I just wanted you to know that I have had more compliments and own 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

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!
