We were heading out to visit Emerald Bay this week when I narrowly missed having a wardrobe malfunction. It wasn’t fatal but as I gave my outfit one last look before going out, (always a wise thing to do) I was surprised to find I hadn’t taken my own advice.
If you’re like most women you have slips, camisoles, plus panties and bras in a multitude of colors and styles. Lingerie should make us feel pretty, clothe our private parts, and serve a purpose.
Bras should provide comfortable support, look smooth under clothes and conceal your nipples (if you’re modest). There are push-up versions to enhance cleavage, T-shirt to smooth and conceal nipples, minimizers to reduce volume, sports bras to prevent movement, demi bras to wear under low cut tops, racerback to wear under halter and tops with close-set straps and on and on.
The bra no women needs to own is a white bra. Do I have some? Sure, but I can’t remember why I bought them.
The problem is a white bra always shows under light colored and white tops. If your intent is to showcase your pretty white bra under a sheer or thin top, go for it. I never say never about fashion anymore but for now, I prefer to have my lingerie work it’s magic invisibly.
The best alternative to a white bra is nude. Your nude! I have pale rosy skin so my nude is often ivory and sometimes very pale pink. If you have tan or dark skin look for a nude that closely matches your skin. They’re your best bet for having nothing show through under your semi-sheer and light tops.
And on the subject of Emerald Bay, we’ve lived within a 4 hour drive of this gorgeous spot for over 40 years and were thrilled to finally see it. Put it on your must-see list when visiting Lake Tahoe.
Does your lingerie drawer hold many white bras?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day.
