5 Tips for Finding the Right Bra Size

Finding the perfect bra that fits well but is not too tight does not necessarily have to be stressful. From the A cup to the F, these tips below might help you in finding the perfect piece.

  1. More than one everyday piece

A bra should be changed everyday and rotated as much as possible to ensure that it last longer. For that, you would need to choose at least 3 or 4 everyday wear bra. Wearing a bra for consecutive days can also stretch it out.

  1. Your bra size WILL change

With age and weight fluctuations, your bra size will change. The cup size will also change as you grow. You might want to continually measure yourself up to check whether your bra size is still the same before buying a new set.

  1. Wear your bra on the loosest clasp

When your bra is still new, wear it on the loosest clasp. With time, as the bra stretches, you would then be able to tighten it so that it continues to fit well.

  1. Test it with an arm lift

This is a great test to determine whether your bra size is correct for you. If your bra has moved when you tried the test, it means that your cup might be small or your band might be bigger.

  1. The center of your bra should fit against your sternum.

The center of your bra should sit against your sternum and your entire bra should not move when you press it. If it moves, it means that you need to get a bigger cup size.

How to dress for your first date

The easiest way to stand out on your first date is to make yourself more attractive. To do that, you have to make sure you get the clothing side right. Forget brands and trend, think about how they fit. You want to look confident, so be sure to go for clothes that fit you perfectly. A lot of people do not take these advices seriously, but think about it. Do you really want to send the wrong message on the first date itself?

One thing you can’t easily change, unfortunately, is your body shape. So be sure to take that into consideration when choosing your outfit. Think of it as branding yourself. Each outfit will attract different types of persons.

Of course, stay away from your cheesy tops. Some guys might like a chick with attitude, but what if your date is not of that kind. You don’t want to spend an awkward one, right? So go for something more subtle.

Also, bear in mind that most guys will appreciate your outfit as long as it shows you’ve put some time into choosing it. Sometimes it’s just a case of matching the right colors.

Lastly, be sure to get the right shoes. Don’t spend too much time trying to match your date’s height. Go with something comfortable. If you’re comfortable wearing heels, by all means, go for them. However, make sure that you’re not going bowling and also, you might want to keep those attractive high red heels for a later date…

Choosing the right prom dress according to your body type

Women come in all shapes and sizes. Fortunately, prom dresses do too. Finding the right dress according to your body type is crucial to how you would feel about wearing that dress. The tips below might guide you in making the right choice.

Pear Shapes

If your body is pear-shaped, choosing a dress with a fitted top and a voluminous or A-line skirts. Such skirts would hide some of the lower curves. However, you might also choose to flaunt your behind by opting for a more form-fitting dress.

Apple shapes

If your body is apple-shaped, you might choose a dress with an empire waist in order to draw attention away from the middle of your body. Opting for a dress with a higher waistline might also help. If you have nice legs, you might flaunt them by wearing a mini dress.

Slender figures

If you have a slim figure, you can create the impression of curves by drawing attention to your busts or wearing a dress that has a bell shape. You might also drag attention to your waist by opting for a wrap dress or using a belt.

Petite figures

If you are petite, you might focus on showing your legs and wearing asymmetrical hemlines to give the impression of height. Solid and long fitted dresses will also make you look taller. You might also make use of long ruffles to provide the illusion of height.

Hourglass figures

If you are lucky enough to be blessed with an hourglass figure, you can choose just about any dress style. You can flaunt your body in dresses that you prefer depending on your personal taste.

How to dress grunge

The grunge look is that style which we inherited from the late 80s and 90s. Grunge makes us think of bands such as Nirvana and Alice in Chains. However, grunge in fashion, has been a recurring theme and the below tips will help you to get that grunge look!

Choosing your top
Choose a top a size larger than what you would actually wear. To channel the grunge look, avoid bright colors like plague! Instead choose muted colors or go for black.

Flannel shirt
The flannel shirt is the key piece to any grunge look, whether you wear it with jean or over a baby doll skirt. Again opt for muted colors.

Jeans
Ripped and faded denims are essential elements of a grunge wardrobe. Usually, store bought faded jeans would not create the same effect as compared to if you had ripped your own jeans. This makes for a good DIY activity as well.

Shoes
Invest in high-top shoes such as Converse and Doc Marten boots.

Stockings
Consider wearing ripped stocking or stockings made to look ripped. This will complement your high-top shoes or boots.

Jewelry
Grunge is not about wearing too much jewelry. For earrings, go for something simple and small. Wear leather bracelets or simple braided bracelets in dark colors like grey, black or brown.

Thrift stores
If you cannot find clothing elements that look used or worn out enough to give you that grunge look, try thrift stores. These places are packed full of genuinely vintage stuff. You might find just the right hightop shoes or flannel shirts there.

5 Must Know Tips for Walking in High Heels

Heels are elements of our wardrobe that we often rant about but can’t do without. We love the effect that heels have on our legs and the below tips could help you improve the way you wear them.

1. Test your heels beforehand
If you have bought a special pair for an upcoming event, test them by wearing them around the house or to run errands. This will help you figure out if you would be needing cushioning or protection on your feet in certain places where there might be eventual rubs.

2. Scuff the sole of your shoes
There’s nothing worse than wearing brand new high heels on a smooth and slippery floor. A simple solution to prevent this is to scuff your shoe soles with sandpaper or walking on rough materials such as gravel. You can also apply a silicone rubber coating compound to make your soles less slippery.

3. Keep a straight posture and be confident
Walk elegantly and gracefully with your legs extended with each step. This will make you look coordinated and confident.

4. Take small breaks
Take a break from the dance floor or standing up chats by sitting down every 30 minutes or so. This will take some of the pressure off your toes and your feet would be able to last longer at the party.

5. Sign up for yoga or pilates
A long run solution to walking better in heels is to sign up for yoga or pilates classes. These exercises will improve your balance and strengthen your core muscles.

How you can look slim and shapely without the long hours in the gym

The models we see in the adverts or on the runway have perfectly toned bodies and definitely no muffin tops appearing over their jeans.

With the present day obsession with being slim and perfectly toned, not being able to fit perfectly in to your clothing can be very distressing to some.
