I love the month of February for a few reasons; reason number one is that spring is around the corner (YAY!). Reason number two is that “love” day, otherwise known as Valentine’s Day is on its way.
I am a personal stylist here in Toronto, and the one thing I stress to each of my clients is the importance of versatility in your bra collection. Different bras provide different looks, comfort and shape. So before purchasing an outfit for Valentine’s Day, or any other occasion for that matter, it is VERY important to know what your particular bra needs are and what outfits are best to pair with it.
I recently had the opportunity to shop the TiVoglio Collection with Penningtons, I tried three different styles there, which was great because they gave me further clarity on what styles and options are available for plus-size women.
1) The First Bra I tried was the Eva from The Naturale collection. This Bra is very different than my usual because it has no underwire. The fact that this bra is wire free makes it more comfort focused which is refreshing, but what surprised me was that it still provided great lift and support, which I need.
This bra would be ideal for traveling, casual days, (like in this T-Shirt and Jeans combo) or for long days at the office.
2) The Second Bra I tried was much closer to my everyday style. This style is called the Daniela from The Essenziale collection. I loved the soft stretch of the fabric which gave added comfort. This bra style had underwire and full coverage with a seamless shape under clothing. In my opinion, this makes it the perfect every day bra to wear with just about anything.
3) Last but certainly not least I tried on the Elena bra from the Sensuale collection. This bra is sexy, fierce and demands attention! It comes with a deep and daring plunge and is perfectly padded to lift you up and create a flawless shape.
It is especially perfect for a sexy night on the town with your loved one. I decided to try something different and pair this look with a simple black fitted blazer and dress pants: sexy and sophisticated.
While trying on all these bras I really felt as though the possibilities for outfits were endless. I am excited that retailers like Penningtons provide such a huge selection to help cater to our individual style needs.
So whether you are celebrating Valentine’s this month with someone special or just feelin’ yourself, I’d definitely advise on getting a bra from Penningtons.
