My Ultimate Wardrobe Hack Is This $40 Bra
When it comes to bras, I have very strong, specific opinions; they can't be uncomfortable, they have to be supportive, and they have to be pretty. I've got a larger chest, but that doesn't mean I'll be resigned to wearing bras that don't make me feel beautiful. My ideal style would provide a little lift without being a full-on push-up bra, since I don't want to make my chest look any larger than it already is, and above all else, it wouldn't be padded. I thought that in order to get my dream bra, I was going to have to pay a pretty penny, so imagine my surprise when this Victoria's Secret Dream Angels The Unlined Uplift Bra ($40) met all my criteria.
This bra is basically perfect. It comes in six different lace colors, plus two longline styles. It works beautifully underneath tops and dresses; I've even worn it under a t-shirt. It's also pretty enough that if your bra happens to peek out from underneath your top, nobody would care. I've used it as a makeshift cami when one of my tops has a particularly low neckline, and it's built with a hidden sling, giving you the elusive push-up look without any padding. When I wear this bra, I feel confident and powerful. It comes with me in every suitcase, and when, on a recent trip, I realized I forgot to pack it, I went out and bought another one. So yeah, you could say I'm obsessed. At just $40, I'm pretty sure you will be, too.
