It’s one of the strangest mysteries of our time. If your bra randomly gets tighter when the evening falls, you might be wondering what the cause is. Don’t panic – this is nothing to worry about. In fact, there could be a whole load of reasons that could be causing it.

Here are five things that could be the cause: 

1.  You’re more aware of your lingerie

Let’s face it, during the day, you’re busy with a million different things. You might have work responsibilities, household tasks, and social activities. That means that your mind is set on a whole load of things. The truth of the matter is that you likely don’t think about your lingerie or how it feels. However, the moment that you get home and start to relax, you have fewer things to think about. That’s perhaps why you start to focus on how your bra feels and whether you feel that it’s a little tight.

2.  You’re wearing the wrong bra size

Are you wearing the right bra size? If you’re not sure, it’s time to find out. Booking yourself a bra fitting appointment at a local lingerie store is the smartest thing to do. Most lingerie boutique stores and department stores have free fitting services, which means that solving this problem won’t cost you a thing. When you know that you’re wearing the right bra size, you will feel more comfortable and supported at all times. It’s that simple. Get this job done sooner rather than later so that you can relax.

3.  You could be bloated after dinner

When does your bra start to feel tight? Should you find that you experience irritation directly after dinner, there could be a rather obvious reason for that. When you’ve eaten, you naturally get bloated. That means that you might feel that your clothes are a little tighter than they were before. It could be worth loosening your bra after your meal so that you feel any discomfort or pain.

4.  You may be sitting in a new position

During the working hours of the day, you likely have to sit or stand up straight all of the time. Good posture is everything. However, when you’re trying to relax and unwind in the comfort of your own home, all of that may go out of the window. It’s only natural. So, if you’re slumped down in your seat or sitting in a new position, your bra may have moved with your body too. You could find that your lingerie is digging into you or feeling uncomfortable. Try adjusting your position to see if it makes a difference.

5.  It could be down to hormonal changes

Hormones are weird and wonderful things. Throughout the day, you may find that they affect all manner of things. Often enough, an increase in hormones could mean that your breasts swell or start to feel larger. That is typically completely normal but it can play havoc with your lingerie. Should you find that this happens regularly, you might want to get an expert’s opinion on the matter. It’s likely nothing to worry about but a doctor will be able to give you the answers that you’ve been looking for.

If you’re struggling with a tight bra in the evenings, it could be time to put on your detective’s hat and start investigating the issue! You may find that one of the surprising reasons here is to blame for the underlying problem. Luckily, all of the above are easily solved, which means that you can deal with it as soon as possible.

Every woman deserves to feel comfortable and supported. When you have large breasts, you might worry about finding the right lingerie for you. Should you want to get a wireless bra, there are a few bra fit tips you’ll want to keep in mind.

Here’s everything that you need to know about choosing a wireless bra:

Focus on the fit

First of all, before we go any further, you should understand that breast support doesn’t come from the bra’s underwire. That part of the lingerie is merely there for structuring and to give the piece the right shape.

The truth of the matter is that the majority of a bra’s support actually comes from the band, not the wire or straps. This is why we recommend buying a bra with a snug fitting band. For the best fit, you should be able to fit two fingers between your skin and the bra band. Anything less and the bra band may be too small.

Look for a structured bra

So, where should you start? When you’re choosing a wireless bra for large breasts, you should make sure that the piece is highly structured. For bralettes, look for a well-designed bra with lined and seamed cups. Avoid bands with 1 or 2 hooks – you’ll need something more substantial to support your breast tissue. A longline bra or bra with a wide band and multi-hook and eye closure (3 hooks or more) are ideal. A power mesh mesh-lined and side boning can provide additional stability and support for full busts.

Opt for a longline style bra

Another style of bra that you may find works for you is a longline bra. These styles of lingerie feature additional fabric below the cups. The wideband and multi-hook and eye closure help to keep the bra in place, so you don’t have to worry about your bra band riding up your back throughout the day. What’s more, there is a wide variety of bra styles that you could choose from here. Whether you’re interested in something sultry and sexy or perhaps a more practical, everyday number, you’re sure to find it. The fact that the bra band is heftier means that you will get that extra level of support you need.

Make sure the fabric is high quality

Of course, it should go without saying that when you’re looking for a wireless bra for large breasts you need to invest in a quality piece. Before you go ahead and buy a new bra, you should check out what the fabric is made of. Reading the description of your lingerie so that you know what you’re buying. When you invest in a quality piece of lingerie, you can expect that you will get a high level of support from it. Buying the best quality you can afford could be the difference between a bra that lasts a few washes and a bra that lasts a few months.

Is your lingerie game on point? As the foundation of your wardrobe, ensuring that your bra sets are in the best condition is an essential life tip. When you’ve worn the same bra for quite some time, though, you may begin to notice that the band stretches out. No matter how high-end your lingerie is, this sad fate awaits all bras. Here’s what you need to know.

Should new bra bands be tight?

One of the biggest myths when it comes to lingerie is that your bra band should be tight. When you get a bra fitted correctly, the band should fit snug, but not uncomfortable. You shouldn’t find that it’s too tight or, worse, painful in any way. Ouch!

You could fix this problem by sizing up in the band (try your bra sister size) or by wearing the bra on a different clasp. But, remember: it’s always best to start new bras on the loosest hook. The general purpose of the band is that it gives you breasts the support they need while firmly holding the bra in place. If you’re struggling with a band that is too tight, you might want to get measured again.

Why do bra bands start to stretch with wear?

Nothing lasts forever. Not even fine lingerie. When you invest in a beautiful new piece of lingerie, you may hope that you’ll never have to replace it. The truth of the matter is that, just like other clothes, it will wear out at some point. The more that you wear and, indeed, wash your bra, the more likely the material is to lose its elasticity.

When that starts to happen, you will find that the bra band begins to stretch. At first, when you notice this problem, you may be able to adjust the bra and make it tighter. However, this is merely a short-term fix, and eventually, you will need to replace the bra itself when the bra band is too loose on the tightest hook.

Can you make bras last longer?

The answer is yes. There are many ways in which you can extend the life of your bra. Taking proper care of your lingerie is one of the smartest ways to ensure that it stays in good shape throughout its lifespan. Everything from the way you store your lingerie to how often you wear it and how you wash it is certain to have an impact on how long each piece lasts.

Whenever you get a new piece of lingerie, you should make sure that you look after it as best you can. It may take a little more effort on your part, but it’s so worth it. Start by washing your bras with care and properly storing your bras so they don’t get crushed and bent in your lingerie drawer.

How long should you keep bras?

Not sure how long you should actually keep your bras? You’re not alone. Many women find it hard to figure out when they should throw out their bras. As a general rule, if you tend to wear the same bras regularly, you’ll likely need new bras every few months. Rotating your bras (never wearing the same bra two days in a row) is one of the best ways to prolong the lifespans of your bras. For example, if you wear a t-shirt bra once a week or so, you should find that it lasts six months to a year with proper care.

You might wonder why you should throw out your bra after this point. Well, while you can technically keep bras for as long as you like, as the band starts to stretch out, the bra will lose its support. 80-85% of a bra’s support comes from the band, so you’re doing yourself a disservice if your bra band isn’t fitting you properly. Be sure to keep this in mind if you’re debating throwing out a well-worn bra.

Signs your bra band is stretched out

Finally, let’s talk about some of the signs that your bra has begun to seriously stretch out. One of the first things that you will notice is that your bra feels looser than it did before. The bra band may ride up your back. You’ll likely be able to fit a hand or two between your skin and the bra band (with a properly fitting bra, you should be able to fit two fingers between your skin and the band). If you take a closer look at the band, you might also see that there is some discoloration and that the fabric has started to fray and come apart. When these things happen, the best thing you can do is throw out the bra or, even better, recycle it, and shop for new bras.

Welcome to 2019! Now that we’ve seen in the new year, it’s time to start thinking about the small changes we can make. If you’re hoping to make your life easier this year, you don’t need to have a huge lifestyle overhaul. Instead, you just need some lingerie life hacks that will help make everything go much more smoothly. Here are six you should know about.

1.  Sort your lingerie by theme

Do you have trouble finding that perfect bra set when you need it the most? Do you even know where your sports bra is at a moment’s notice? When you put all your lingerie and bra sets in the same drawer, it can be a real mission to find what you need. If it’s time to clean stuff out and organize your drawers, you might want to rethink things. Why not sort your lingerie by theme? You can use drawer dividers or boxes to create various sections. You might want an ‘everyday’, ‘sports’, and ‘fancy’ section, for example.

2.  Use delicate bags to wash

Worried about ruining your fine lingerie in the wash? Making sure that you take great care when it comes to cleaning your bras and briefs is a must. Of course, you can hand wash highly delicate pieces, but there is another way to go. You can actually invest in delicate bags that you can put your lingerie in when you wash them. You can buy these lingerie accessories online or get them from some selected stores. Getting this small and simple thing could help you to protect your favorite bras.

3.  Create your own racerback

It should go without saying that every lady out there needs to invest in a decent enough racerback bra. However, if you’re caught short and don’t have one, there’s a quick and easy lingerie hack that you can try for yourself. Get yourself a clip for your bra. You can use this small accessory to create your own racerback bra look in mere seconds. All you have to do is fasten the back of your straps together. Be aware that you may need to adjust your straps before doing this so that you have some extra movement.

4.  Buy handy lingerie tools

When you take the time to invest in decent lingerie, the last thing you want is for it to go to waste. Luckily, there are tons of tools out there that you can get to help you along the way. For example, you might want to get some bra extenders if you find that your favorite piece of lingerie has got a little tight. Equally, you could get pads that go under your bra straps to make them more comfortable. It’s worth taking a look at what’s out there to see what works for you. Take a look online and see whether you can get some handy extras.

5.  Keep your lingerie in sets

Finding matching bras and briefs might not sound like one of life’s biggest problems, but it can be a real pain when you’re in a rush. One of the smartest things you can do here to make your life easier is to start keeping your lingerie in its original sets. For instance, if you happen to have a fancy set that matches perfectly, you could keep it on a small lingerie hanger in your wardrobe. Doing this rather than stuffing it in a drawer will keep it neat, tidy, and always accessible when you want to shake up your look.

6.  Get a bra case to packing easier

Are you planning an epic vacation this year? Making sure that you keep your lingerie safe when you pack it can be a hassle. With that in mind, you could get a small bra case for your journey. You can get hard and sturdy cases that are shaped to fit your lingerie. These extras mean that you can pack your bras away without worrying that they will get damaged. If you have some high-end lingerie pieces, keeping them safe could be one of your main priorities. Thankfully, this solution couldn’t be simpler!

Confidence doesn’t come naturally for everyone. We all have moments in which we feel weak or down on ourselves. It happens. It’s what you do next that matters. If you feel as though your self-esteem needs a little makeover, take the new year as a turning point. There are many ways in which you can transform your mindset.

Here are some tips you can use that will help you to boost your self-esteem in no time:

Write your own life story

Your life is a story and you are the narrator. You get to frame things and see them exactly as you please. Right now, you might be caught in a negative cycle. You’re telling a story in which you’re the victim. Change things up. Make yourself the hero. When you think about your situation, try to put a positive spin on it. Tell the tale as though you were talking about someone else and not yourself. Once you learn this art (and it definitely is an art!), you will find that you start to feel a whole lot more confident in yourself.

Be kind to others (and yourself)

Are you kind to the people around you? When you lack self-esteem, it can be easy to lash out and say hurtful things to the people that matter the most. However, when you don’t treat people correctly, it has a knock-on effect. You may find that people react negatively toward you, which will only further hurt your sense of self-worth. Make a pledge to be altogether kinder to the people in your life. Compliment them on things that you find genuinely impressive and offer to help them when you can.

Work out for the right reasons

Starting a new gym regime? Make sure that you do it for all the right reasons. Learning to enjoy exercise is all about focusing on the many benefits that you gain from it. Research suggests that engaging in physical exercise could actually help to boost your self-esteem. The theory is that the more you are active in your day-to-day life, the happier, healthier, and more confident you will be. Whether it’s joining a dance class, hitting the treadmill, or joining a sports team, why not make 2019 the most active year yet?

Focus on your own goals

Since the new year is almost here, it’s time to start talking about your aims and targets for 2019. What are they? How can you reach them? Sometimes, we get caught up worrying about what other people are doing and how their lives are unfolding. Focusing on them only means that you will hold yourself back and fail. Instead, make sure that you pay attention to where your own life is headed and what you have to do to succeed.

Forgive your friends and family

Forgiveness is the greatest gift you can give someone and, in fact, yourself. If there are people in your life who have hurt you, now is the time to take the first step toward moving on. Forgive them. When you hold onto anger and hate, it festers inside of you. Before long, you will find that it’s all you can think about. That in itself is massively unhealthy. It has to stop. The moment that you choose forgiveness, you can start to move forward and live a lighter, happier, easier life. That’s a sure fire way to boost your self-esteem.

Improve your self-care game

Self-care is an essential part of modern life. You likely have obligations – work, family, and social ones – pulling you in a thousand different directions. While you need to honor them, you should also make sure that you take the time to look after number one as well. Your version of self-care and self-love is unique to you. One of the easiest ways to start out is to write down the things in life that make you the happiest. What brings you joy and helps you relax or unwind? You can use the list as your go-to when you need some time out.

The new year is perhaps the best time to make some positive changes in your life. Use our guide as some inspiration to help you do just that. Self-esteem building isn’t something that you can do overnight. It takes work and dedication every single day. However, when you get it right, you will see a strikingly huge shift in the way that you feel and how you present yourself. Get started today and improve your daily life!

It itches, rubs, and irritates your skin! If you can always feel your bra under your clothes, it is something of a pain. Luckily, there are a few things you can try.

Here are some simple tips on how to choose a bra you can’t feel under your clothes:

1.  Make sure that the size is correct

Before you do anything else, you need to make 100% sure that you’re wearing the correct bra size. When your lingerie is too large or small, you’re likely to start feeling it. You may find that it will make you uncomfortable and rub against your skin. That’s a real problem.

You should make sure that you get fitted every few months. The fact of the matter is that your bra size will likely fluctuate over the course of the year. Getting this simple aspect of your self-care right could make all the difference.

2.  Look for material that’s comfortable

You wear a bra for hours and hours each day. So, if the material happens to be uncomfortable, you will find that you can feel it all of the time. To avoid this issue, you need to make sure that you choose the right material.

Picking fabric that is too heavy or scratchy is a recipe for disaster. Don’t make that mistake. Instead, you should look for something that is light, airy and allows your skin to breathe. All of the above means that you will be extra cozy when you slip on your bra and you will hardly notice it.

3.  Consider a wireless bra

When it comes to how to choose a bra you can’t feel under your clothes, there’s one style that you should definitely consider. Wireless bras are those without wiring under the cups. That means that you are less likely to feel them throughout the day. Many sports bras and everyday t-shirt bras come in this particular fashion. You should find them extra comfortable. Look for a wireless bra with a thick band so that you get all of the support you could possibly need. It’s completely worth it!

4.  Or a simple full-cup bra

Similarly, you may find that a full-cup bra with a simple design is the answer that you’ve been looking for. There aren’t too many different elements to a bra like this one, which means that you shouldn’t’ find it irritating at all. When selecting your full-cup bra, opt for one that has the maximum level of coverage. That way, you will find that the bra completely encapsulates your breasts for a super cozy and easy-to-wear feel. You may also want to ensure that the piece is as light-wear as possible too.

5.  Try before you buy something new

Do you try on lingerie before you buy it? If you’re shopping online, this is not always possible. However, on the other hand, if you’re shopping at a department store or lingerie boutique, you could find that it’s the right way to go. When you’ve found a bra that you think fits the bill, head to the fitting room and try it for yourself.

You can adjust the straps and band to make sure that it’s the right fit. Wear the bra for a couple of minutes so that you understand how it will feel. You might want to move around and see what happen too.

6.  Consider the outfit you will wear

What outfit do you plan on wearing this bra with? It’s something that you might want to consider for yourself before you buy the lingerie. The clothes that you wear will greatly impact whether you can feel the bra under them.

For example, if you plan on wearing a long, flowing dress, you may find that most bras will be pretty comfortable. However, if you’re going to wear something tighter, such as a bodycon dress, you should consider what bra will work with that particular outfit.

Final considerations

Your comfort should always come first. Now that you know how to choose a bra you can’t feel under your clothes, what are you waiting for? This guide should have given you all the information you need to get the coziest bra for your shape and size. Start shopping today and see what beautiful pieces of lingerie you happen to find along the way.

Buying yourself some stunning new lingerie is a treat in itself. There’s nothing quite like it. However, sometimes, you need little extras to complement your wardrobe. If you don’t know all that much about lingerie accessories, you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s a quick guide to some of the best additions you can get and why you need them: 

Bra Laundry Bag

When it comes to taking care of your lingerie, washing each bra regularly is absolutely essential. Most women tend to simply throw their underwear in with the rest of their washing. However, doing so could be a real mistake. It’s far better to make sure that you separate your lingerie from the rest of your clothing.

The reason is simple – lingerie is strikingly delicate. When you wash it, you could run the risk of damaging the material. This is especially true should you put it into the machine with the rest of your stuff. Get an individual bra lingerie bag and divide up your clothes.

Racerback Clips

Looking for a super quick way to turn your everyday t-shirt bra into a racerback number? We could have the answer. Investing in a pack of racerback clips is the only way to go. These accessories can be used to pull the straps of your bra together so that they are out of the way. They form a criss-cross (or racerback) effect in mere seconds. What’s more, the clip should sit flat against your back, meaning that it’s not uncomfortable at all.

Bra Extenders

Do you have a bra that no longer fits? If you suddenly find that one of your favorite pieces of lingerie is too tight, it can be something of a nightmare. Luckily, there’s a quick and easy solution to this problem. If the bra happens to be too good to throw out, you could consider getting some bra extenders. These are clips that you fasten to the hooks on your bras. They give you a larger band size in a flash, which could be just what you need. Make sure that you invest in quality pieces so that you get the most out of them.

Drawer Organizers

How do you store your lingerie? If you tend to shove everything in a drawer without much thought, it’s time to change your ways sooner rather than later. Getting a small drawer organizer could be the way to go. These lingerie accessories go inside your drawers and divide up the space. That means that it’s easier than ever to store your bras and briefs in the space, without them getting too mixed up and messy. If you haven’t tried one of these yet, do yourself a favor and give it a go. You won’t regret it.

Bra Hangers

If you want to take things one step further, why not consider using some bra hangers instead? Should you have seriously high-quality lingerie, the last thing you want to do is ruin it by putting it in the drawer and storing it badly. Instead, you should get some small hangers and dedicate part of your closet to this small and simple thing. You can get these accessories anywhere online or simply ask in store when you’re next buying a bra. You won’t believe the difference it makes to how long your lingerie lasts.

Final considerations

Ready to start shopping? This festive season, take your lingerie game to a whole new level with some of these awesome accessories. When you start getting these extras, you will wonder what you ever did without them. Why not get started today and find yourself some great little extras?

Do you support local businesses? When you’re buying clothes or lingerie, it’s important to consider this factor. Buying from local boutiques or stores could help them more than you know. What’s more, it supports the local economy and means that you get a personalized service too. You might say it’s a win-win situation.

Here’s what you need to know:

Check online for local outlets

First things first, you need to make sure that you look for local outlets online. Doing so will take you just a few minutes and shouldn’t be too much hassle. You can do a quick Google Maps search and see what comes up. Of course, you’re looking for a lingerie store that has a boutique offering so that you can find what you need. See which ones are close to where you live and easily accessible. They might be the right store for you.

Read the reviews before shopping

Next up, you need to check out the reviews. You can look at the Google Reviews, testimonials, or Trustpilot to find out the details of each store. You should be able to get the inside scoop on whether the place is worth visiting or not. Don’t just look at the star rating. Instead, you need to check to see what people have said about their experience in the store. You should also be able to get an idea of whether the store is expensive or affordable.

Ask your friends for recommendations

Have you asked your friends where they buy their lingerie? If the answer is no, you need to call them up and find out. Getting word-of-mouth recommendations is one of the best ways to find exactly what you need. After all, there’s nothing quite like finding insider tips from the people that you trust the most. When you start asking around, you could find that you get more recommendations than you ever expected. That means that you will have plenty of places you can try to figure out what works for you.

Look for trusted and known brands

You might already have a lingerie brand that you love. Most of us do. When you’re on the hunt for a local lingerie store that you can trust, you may want to take a quick look and find out what they happen to stock. For example, if you love our collections at Parfait or Mod, you could look out for a store that sells them. That way, you will know that you can get the lingerie that you love in no time at all. It’s a simple trick but it works.

Make sure they have a fitting service

You don’t need to be a lingerie expert to know that you need to get fitted for a new bra on a regular basis. Doing so is one of the smartest ways you can look after yourself and ensure that you’re wearing the right size. When you’re looking for a bra store in the local area, there’s one question you always need to ask. Do they have a fitting service? If the answer is no, you could find that you need to go somewhere else to get what you need. Knowing that you can get measured in the store gives you an extra level of security.

Join a loyalty card scheme

Does the store have a loyalty card scheme? If so, you need to join it as soon as possible. One of the best things about this type of scheme is that you get rewarded for the purchases that you make. That means that you could save yourself a whole load of money along the way as well. When you’re visiting the boutique or store, be sure to ask the staff whether they offer a loyalty card or any other similar service.

Get to know the staff and team

When you’ve found a lingerie store that you love, it’s time to get a little friendly. Why not spend some time getting to know the staff members there? Doing so will mean that the experience is much better than ever before. You may also find that you’re the first to hear about any discounts or special promotions that are planned. It doesn’t take much to be extra nice when talking to the team and it’s sure to make their day too.

As the new year looms, it’s time to take stock of things. Have you had a great year? How is your body positivity? Do you love yourself like you should? These are all questions you need to ask. If you’re not certain where to start, let’s take a look at a quick checklist.

Here are eight different signs that your #BoPo game is on point:

1.  You look forward to dressing each day

Each morning, when that annoying little alarm starts to ring, you wake up ready for the day. It’s time to get up, wash, and get dressed. To tell the truth, this is one of the best parts of your day. You fling open your closet and take a look at all the clothing options you have. Getting dressed up and making yourself feel wonderful is how you start each and every morning. You wouldn’t have it any other way.

2.  You’re not in the habit of weighing yourself

When was the last time you weighed yourself? When you start to get your body positivity game right, you no longer have to worry about this problem. If you feel healthy, you don’t have to obsess about the numbers on the scales. They are just that – numbers. Nothing more, nothing less. You know that so long as you eat well and stay active, you don’t have a problem with your body size or shape. It’s that simple.

3.  You remember the compliments you get

Off the top of your head, can you recall what the last compliment you got was? When you’re comfortable with yourself, these are the small things that leave a lasting impression. Believe it or not, people probably say complimentary things about you all of the time. When you start to remember these off-hand comments, they are sure to help you to boost your relationship with your body image. Why not start making a mental note of them?

4.  You’ve cut back on social media

Social media can be fun but it can also be toxic. If you go online to find out whether people are doing better than you or whether they look better than you do, you could be doing yourself more harm than good. It’s time to switch things up. Spending less time on social media on a day-to-day basis is a great way to up your self-care. Why not get started today and see how much better you begin to feel?

5.  You stand tall when you walk into a room

When you walk into a room, how is your overall posture? If you cower and shy away, it tells the world that you don’t want anybody to look at you at all. However, if you stand tall with your shoulders back and your head held high, it sends out the opposite message. This brave stance tells people that you are proud of who you are and the way that you look. It invites them to look at you for all the right reasons.

6.  You have a healthy relationship with food

How is your relationship with food? If you restrict yourself from eating certain things or are constantly dieting, that’s a major problem. It’s not healthy. When you love yourself and your health, you understand that food is not the enemy. Eating well and enjoying the type of food that you crave shows that you are happy and content with food. That means not overeating but not starving yourself either. Eat when you’re hungry and give your body what it needs the most. Easy.

7.  You seldom think negative thoughts

Do you think negative things about your body all of the time? Sometimes, we’re all guilty of this serious sin. It’s an easy trap to fall into, but you want to avoid it at all costs. When you catch yourself being overly negative, change the conversation. Start thinking about all the positive things that you have in your life and consider why you should be pleased with yourself. It might take a little bit of practice at first, but you will soon get used to this habit.

8.  You are proud of yourself and your body

Every single woman out there deserves to feel proud of herself and her body. When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Are you happy with your reflection? Can you see how attractive and beautiful you are? When your body positivity is on point, the answer will always be yes. Rather than picking your looks apart, you need to appreciate yourself the way that you are. Now, say it with me, you are absolutely gorgeous!
