Under Garments and The Roles They Play
Undergarments As Wardrobe Staples
Bras - While not everyone likes to wear a bra, they can definitely serve a purpose. Did you know that a wearing a "good" bra will not only lift the girls up but that lift will give the appearance of a smaller waist line?
I didn't believe it, but my daughter and I were bra shopping and it doesn't take much for me. The only time I had cleavage was when I was pregnant and breast feeding my children. When the milk left so did the cleavage. So a tank top was all I ever really needed. That was until I had an affair to attend and the dress called for a little extra attention to my little girls.
The sales associate recommended a bra that gave the girls a lift, without underwire, and the dress took on a completely different look and feel on my body. So yes, a "good" bra will definitely change the look of a garment you're wearing, give the girls a lift and give you the appearance of a smaller waistline.
Shapewear - I laugh when I see the term shape wear. It's a new term for girdles but without all the boning and elastic that's so tight you can't breathe. Shape wear is also what you know today as Spanx.
Technology has revolutionized fabric in such a way that garments can be designed to hold in "all of you" wherever you need special attention. I mentioned tank tops earlier, there are now tank tops that will hold in all of the extra you and give lift to your breast as well. This technology has also given us a way to have breast support without underwire, which is known to be a cause of breast cancer in some women.
Shape wear for your thighs and hips will give you the support underneath your clothes and smooth out cellulite and unwanted fat deposits. It allows you to wear that special dress that clings and drapes ever so softly over your hips without revealing those days missed at the gym.
Slips - Just in case you hadn't noticed, slips will act as a lining under clothing that's thin and see through. Slips also act as a barrier between your garment and undergarments eliminating friction and static between the two.
Short slips, long slips, full slips and half slips all serve a purpose in your wardrobe. Don't let anyone tell you that slips are old and outdated. They have and serve their purpose.
The next time you hear the word undergarments, just know that they serve their purpose and can provide great coverup for a multitude of sins.
As Always …
