Fit Is It When It Comes To Finding The Right Bra

(NAPSI)-A wardrobe is built layer by layer, starting at the foundation. However, a recent survey found that 70 percent of women start off their look with the wrong size bra.

“The secret to wearing the latest trends and styles starts with fit,” says Stacy London, co-host of TLC’s ‘What Not To Wear.’ “Following a trend doesn’t work if you go overboard and it certainly isn’t stylish if the clothing doesn’t fit properly.”

The following tips will help achieve a great fit:

• Get a professional bra fitting once a year - or more if you’ve recently lost or gained weight or had a baby.

• Befriend your tailor. Hem pants or skirts that fall awkwardly for a more contemporary look.

•Use what you’ve got. Find styles that flatter your body to accentuate the positive parts.

• Express yourself. Have fun with fashion by using colors, fabrics and embellishments.

• When you change your clothes, change your undergarments. The underwire bra that looks great under a tailored jacket may not be ideal for lounging around or an evening dinner date.

Once women know which fit flatters them, they can incorporate clothes and trends that reflect their personality, activities and lifestyles.
