In order for a woman to pull off an outfit, she needs three things… confidence, the right fit and the right undergarments. Not in that particular order, of course.
My mother always used to say that anyone could look good in a potato sack if they just had enough confidence, and I believe her. It’s really about that swagger in your step, right? But it’s also about the structure and support your clothing offers you.
Personally, I know what kind of dresses work for me. I love to say that I am looking for some “bones” when I’m hunting for a LBD. Nothing too loose or too thin. That simply will not work on my body type.
And when it comes to support, I need all that I can get. Ladies, you need the right bra! There was a study done that showed a world of a difference on a woman’s shape simply by fitting her with the proper bra. I couldn’t believe the results. Truly!
So, I wanted to show you some looks that are hot this spring and pair them with the right bra style.
Neon Fitted Blazer, $77; Olympia strapless dress, $2,132; Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra $60; Gramercy Grand Chronograph Watch, $250; Brown Oversized Square Sunglasses, $23; Fifi 100 Patent Leather Pumps, $655
Floral Dresses: So, so on TREND! Anything floral is hot for spring. Why not opt for a beautiful floral dress that cinches at the waist? For this cut, you need a strapless bra that gives you lots of support. Featured above is the Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless. I always opt for underwire because it gives me that additional support I need to fill out the top of my look. And great news, the Red Carpet comes with straps that you can simply clip on making this convertible easily switch to a halter or even a criss-cross.

Casual fashion T-shirt: Fashion T-shirts with sayings are all the rage. In fact, you might see something coming out with my stamp on it soon enough!! (hint hint). Everyone needs a nice, relaxing day look and this is the perfect style for running errands. I love to wear black and gold jewelry; mixing and matching these two colors really works well! For your undergarment, be sure to opt for a bra specifically made for T-shirts. Think smooth lines and no lace. I opted for the La Femme Underwire T-Shirt Bra by Wacoal.
Beige Cill Woven Cap Sleeve Jumper, $400; Large Saffiano Satchel Bag Peanut, $358; Retro Chic Full Figure Underwire Bra, $60; Women’s Stretch All-Wear Shorts, $55; Elysien Ring, $10; Lemon Quartz Pendant Necklace, $1,098; Women’s Wedge Shoes, $54
Go bold: I love the color red. So, I tend to grab my red jeans whenever I can. If red isn’t your color, then opt for pink, yellow or mint green. The spring is all about having fun with color. Just remember, use some neutrals to even out the rest of your look. I thought the Wacoal Retro Chic Full Figure Underwire support bra would work best with this outfit again. You want to choose a bra that gives you complete support with a lightweight shirt like this.
What are some spring trends that you are looking forward to trying out this upcoming season?
