Foundation for Summer

And now for something real- we’re going to talk about some of the summer necessities for women who are fortunate enough to be well endowed. I think the summer poses some unique challenges because there are strappy or strapless outfits, a lot of active outdoor activities, and, of course, it’s swimsuit season.

First, we need a new strapless bra for that bridesmaid dress, or your strapless maxi. I recently got this one from Wacoal. It hits all my criteria for a strapless: 1. it stays up, 2. it’s simple and low profile, 3. it has a large range of sizes.

Bralettes seem to be all the rage right now. So that’s cute for the 17 year olds, but for the rest of us that need a little more support… I really like this front close unlined bra from VS. It’s really lightweight, it goes up to DDD, and it’s low profile for those days you don’t want the scaffolding and padding. Plus the straps can cross in the back, so you can wear it with halters or racerbacks.

This is a game changer for me. I typically have to layer two sports bras when I go for a run, and this is the only sports bra I’ve ever worn that I can wear by itself! It’s kind of a bitch to get into, but I like that it doesn’t have an underwire because those sports bras make me feel like I’m running in an uncomfortable push up bra. At $60, I’m not replacing all my sports bras just yet, but between this option, and another winner for mid-impact, I’m rethinking some life choices…

When it comes to swim suits, it’s all about the sizing and quality of the garment. Freya is one of my go-to brands because they usually put out a few cool options every year that are very true to their bra sizing. I also like VS and Becca suits for their styles and sizing.

What styles are working for you this year?
