Recently, I’ve realised I’m beginning to have a slight problem. Well, two slight problems really…my boobs aren’t feeling quite as supported as I’d like in what I call my ‘everyday bras’. Not a problem, you think…just replace them! I know that bras should be rotated so as not to be worn day-after-day, and replaced frequently – but it doesn’t seem like long since I started building up my current collection, and it’s certainly less than the time they should be wearing out in, given the number of bras I currently have – especially given that they weren’t cheap to begin with!
I’ve decided this time to splurge a little as I replace each set – and I know I’ll get a proper life out of my replacements, even if it means replacing each set is a little slower than I’d like. So, here’s what’ made it on to my bra-wardrobe-update-wishlist:
First up, I’ve had my eyes on the ‘Coco’ Cathedral Bra (£43.50) since it came out – I love the shape of the bra and the chocolate-coloured accent fabric, it would be perfect to secretly add a little bit of cheer to any darker outfit – not to mention the authentic – but not hugely pointy – shape.
In a similar vein, I also adore the ‘Valerie’ Cathedral Bra (£44.17), the red makes for a stunning contrast against the black, I adore the styling on the matching knickers & suspender belt – the way the red lattice detailing peeks through is just enough to be sexy, but not so much that it overpowers the bra or looks like they don’t belong together. I suspect that this set might be going on my christmas list, I do hope Santa thinks I’ve been a good girl this year!
Next up I’ve been looking at plunge bras – the ‘Cabaret’ Satin Plunge Bra in beige (£32.91) from Secrets in Lace would be wonderful to wear under any number of blouses & tops, and being in a typically “nude” colour it wouldn’t be obvious under planer tops.
But for a pop of pattern & colour, I think the styling of the Bettie Leopard & Red Plunge Bra, also from Secrets in Lace, (£38.67) is just perfect – of course I love leopard print – the red accents on this set are just the perfect shade to set the colours of the print off.
