It doesn't seem to be any woman's favorite task, but at some point you will have to go bra shopping. Here are a few pointers to get you started.....
1. Underwired bras, if fit correctly, should not be uncomfortable. 2. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing a bra with no wires, you will just get a different shape than with an underwire. 3. The back of your bra should be even or lower than your natural bust line, and snug enough to stay put. 4. Underwires should rest against your chest (not standing out). If they stand away, you may need a larger cup size. 5. You should have no breast spilling over the top of your cup. (Larger cup required) 6. No breast should be leaking out the bottom (under the cup) this would require a tighter band.
These are just a few pointers to help get you started. All of us at Above Average Lingerie & Fashions would be glad to spend some time, helping you select the bra that will be right for you. After all you are the woman that has to be comfortable and feel good at the end of the day.
Panties, the bane of every woman....to short in the rise, to long in the rise, don't stay over your bottom, and the list goes on.
We have a wide selection of panties from 100% cotton, to new soft micro fibers that will suit almost every need. The old rule was if you were a warm body to stick with cotton, but new fabric technologies allows micro fibers to wick moisture away and dry faster than cotton.
Cotton panties are still a tried and true staple in most ladies wardrobes, but many women now find other types of fabrics can be light, airy and comfortable to wear and can add a new dimension to our panty drawers.
Just because you are a size 14 or larger doesn't mean you aren't active or fit.
It also doesn't mean you don't want to look good when you are active. Walking, running, aerobics, yoga, Pilates or just doing our everyday errands, and activities, we need to be comfortable and fashionable.
With products from Harmony Activewear, ByLyse, and Columbia Sportswear, we will outfit you for any activity. Most of our fitness items are made to wick moisture away from your skin to help keep you dry and comfortable in any situation.
