8 Signs It’s Time For A Bra Shopping Trip
Not sure what to do this week? If you haven’t got any big plans, might we suggest a last-minute trip to the stores? Here are eight reasons that you really, truly need a bra shopping trip ASAP.
1. You’ve run out of all your good bras
You’re looking frantically through your lingerie drawer, trying to find a bra that isn’t stretched, discolored, or just plain old. You can’t find one. It’s been so very long since you went bra shopping that all your bras are worn and old. You need to do something about it.
In general, you should be replacing your bras every three months or so, especially if you wear them often. When you find that you’ve run out of all your decent ones, it’s time for a much-needed shopping trip!
2. You deserve to treat yourself
Let’s start with a really simple question. When was the last time that you treated yourself for no reason whatsoever? You may spend all of your time and money spoiling other people. Perhaps you buy gifts for your girlfriends, your kids, or your significant other. While that’s a nice thing to do, you have to think of yourself now and then too.
3. There’s a special occasion coming up
Whether it’s a wedding, a reunion, or a dinner date, there are certain occasions for which you want to look your absolute best. There’s no shame in that. You may already have a killer outfit in mind, but what are you going to wear underneath it. If you’re not sure, you know what you need to do first.
Heading to the stores to buy yourself a brand new bra is a great way to set the tone for the event. You’re going to make sure that you look a million dollars here (and then some!). That means that you’re pulling out all of the stops.
4. You feel like you need a break
Has it been a super long week at work? Have you dealt with a million and one pesky chores? When you feel as though you really need a break, heading out to get something just for you could be the answer.
Buying yourself a wonderful new piece of lingerie won’t solve all your problems, but it’s likely to give you a little pick-me-up. Take the time to choose yourself a piece that suits you and, for once, do something that is a little selfish… in the right way!

5. You want to bond with your bestie
Looking for an excuse to bond with your bestie? You might just have found it. Planning a bra shopping trip this weekend may just be the answer. There’s nothing like spending some quality time with your girlfriend while looking for that special something for yourself. You could even make an entire day of it.
Why not give your friend a call and see if she’s free? Going bra shopping together could be a seriously interesting way to spend the day. You can help one another pick out certain pieces and then round the day off with lunch together. What could be better?
6. You’ve just bought a new outfit
So, you’ve just invested in a beautiful new outfit, got it home, and tried it on. It looks perfect in almost every single way but there’s just one teeny problem with it! You don’t have a single bra in your closet that goes with it. Nightmare!
Don’t panic. You can turn this into an opportunity to treat yourself to something new. Whether you’re in need of a chic plunge bra or a strapless number, you are sure to be able to find just the right one to complement your new look.
7. Your current bras feel a little tight
Ouch! Are your bra straps digging into your skin again? Do you have red marks on your back where your bra was? These are some of the telltale signs that you 100% need to get a new bra as soon as possible. There is just no sense in walking around in pain all of the time. It’s a seriously silly thing to do! Head to the stores and sort out the problem!
8. You want to dress to impress
Looking to impress someone new or just yourself? We ladies deserve to feel fabulous in everything we wear – including our lingerie. If you don’t feel as though that’s the case right now, something has to change sooner rather than later. Heading to the stores and finding some bras that suit your own personal sense of style is the only way to go.
All too often, women tend to neglect their personal look, but that should never be the case. Take the time to make sure that you feel as wonderful as possible every single day. The truth of the matter is that when you feel fantastic, anything is possible.
So, what are you waiting for? The reality is that there are just oh-so-many reasons to take your very next bra shopping trip. And, let’s be honest, you probably don’t even need a reason to hit the stores! Enjoy.
