“You should care about choosing the right type of undergarments just as much as you care about choosing the perfect outfit.”
When I was a little girl my mother taught me to wear dark underwear under light clothes. Why? Because I’m BROWN! Anyone who wears white or light-colored clothing should wear undergarments that are closest to their skin complexion. When I wore skirts and dresses to Sunday service my mother made me wear a slip. Why? Because skirts and dresses are usually made with light fabrics that are see-through in the sunlight. When I started to go to evening affairs with friends in college I bought a strapless bra WITH SUPPORT. Why? Because buying a strapless bra without support (i.e. bandeau bra) will not hold ‘the girls’ up for long once you start dancing and moving about. No matter how cute your outfit is, if you are wearing IMPROPER undergarments, you will look unkempt.
With that said, ladies please search for the proper undergarments for any outfit that you wear. Victoria’s Secret is not the only store for undergarments. My friends who have been blessed with larger bust sizes have had trouble finding comfortable underwear in chain lingerie stores. My co-worker, Jenni, mentioned a specialty shop (Dor-ne Corset Shoppe) in Silver Spring, Maryland that can measure and tailor your undergarments to fit your body. I’ve also searched online for some affordable pieces that fabulous plus-size women can wear under their stylish outfits.
