There's a Bra for That: My Go-To Bras for Any Outfit
I had a real this is 30 moment last fall when I realized I hadn't updated my undergarment game in YEARS. Should I still be wearing the same underwear I wore in college? Do I really need this much padding in my bras? And that's what spurred me to do a big undergarment refresh. The primary focus is on undies (ie: the undie challenge) but many of you have asked me what my go-to bras are, so I figured I would put together a post sharing my faves from t-shirt bras, bralettes, fashion tape, and sticky boobs!
When it comes to everyday bras I'm all about a t-shirt bra; something lightly lined that's going to give you shape. My go-to is Victoria's Secret lightly lined demi bra. The fit is fabulous and the price point is great for stocking up on a few different colors. In the past I've found that some t-shirt bras do that gaping thing at the top but this one does not do that. I'm a 34b and this is definitely TTS. I'm wearing the cotton one above and I love how comfortable and breathable it is. They style also also comes in a Pushup Full Coverage and Wireless options.

For weekends or if you can swing a bralette at work, my go-to spot is Urban Outfitters. They have a plethora of styles ranging from lounge vibes to super sexy and different levels of support. I have this triangle bralette in a ton of colors and it's the one I usually reach for. The fusion bra has more support than your average bralette but one thing to note is that you have to size UP. I LOVE the Annette Bra because of the sexy lace detail; I always feel 100 when I'm wearing it!
What about those special no-bra outfits? I swear by Hollywood Fashion Tape because it STAYS. I've worn it to countless weddings (even to mine) and legit have a little case in almost every bag I own just in case. It's great to pin down low cut dresses, keep up straps... really the options are endless. For backless options I always grab my Nubra aka sticky boobs. While the price point may be a bit hard to swallow, they are re-useable and really do stick ALL night long. A little TMI but they do get kind of smelly especially if you're been sweating but a simple wash with soap fixes it in no time!

You're probably wondering about strapless bras? Well I have two I bought 5 years ago from HauteLook that are still going strong (I know, crazy) but the tags are completely thrashed so I can't read the brand. I know, I'm so not being helpful right now - hah! BUT if you have any you love will you comment below so that other gals can see? xo - Ash
P.S: the results of my undie challenge are coming soon!
