Today at STYLEanthropy, we’re talking about intimates for a new holiday gift guide. Plus, there’s a giveaway at the end of this post! I don’t know about you, but sometimes, my undergarments (mostly the bras) are the most neglected. Sometimes, we take for granted the most basic pieces, thinking they’re just going under the clothes anyway. But they play an important part in making an outfit look good. So stop saying you’ll get a new one later, and take a look at these lingerie pieces for a new holiday gift guide – intimates edition!
A good bra can instantly change the way an outfit looks on you. You can say all you want that it’s hidden anyway, but it can actually make or break an outfit. Sometimes, even if your outfit is on point, an old bra can ruin it. Bulges here and there? Ugh, wrong size can do that. In fact, if you’ve been wearing the wrong size and suddenly find the right one, you’ll be surprised, it may actually give you an instant slimming effect! Pilling bra showing on thin fabrics? So not nice. The wrong color bra making an ugly contrast to your outfit, but you’ve got no choice because you don’t have any other options? Girl, you better add new colors to your bra collection!
I recently received pieces from Vanity Fair’s Holiday line and they are looking pretty luxe, festive and fancy. So it’s definitely something you can add to your Holiday wish list or Christmas shopping list. Or just buy them now because these are pretty affordable! I love their Beauty Back collection (see number 2 on my gift guide below) – because who wants the ugly back bulge especially when you’re wearing a thin knit?
I love this Lily of France Sensational lace push up bra. The black lace accent on that gorgeous red – it just feels so Christmas-y to me – if there is ever a word. It’s currently on sale for under $15 bucks. So you must check it out before they run out.
The Lily of France Extreme Ego Boost bra in polka dot is so darling and perfect year round. But I’m planning on breaking in that baby on New Years Eve. We have a tradition/superstition about wearing polka dots on NYE. In Philippine culture, the dots symbolize money – ‘ya know – gold coins! So for a prosperous life year round, we wear something with polka dot prints to approach the new year. I will be wearing this underneath my fancy NYE outfit that I’m excited to share with you soon.
Now, this silver Vassarette extreme plunge push-up bra, on the other hand, has become my daily companion. It looks really luxe despite the under $20 tag price! It’s super comfortable and I love the boost it gives! I may or may not be showing some photos of me wearing it below. Haha (where’s the see no evil monkey emoji when you need it?)!!!
