Hello Swimwear and Lingerie Buddies!

Can you believe it’s already Thursday? This week has just flown by.

For today’s Fitting Tip Thursday, our theme is… “It’s all about the fit!”

Yup you heard me, I’m going to harp on about how your dainty little nothings are hanging on your body. However, probably not haranguing in the way you assume… you see, I was thinking of all the little tips and tricks I could give you about getting that perfect fit for one piece of lingerie or another… but I kept coming back to the one guiding principle that has always served me so well.

Here it is: Wear whatever the heck you want, in whatever size, colour or style you want it

Yah, that’s right, you heard it here first.

The woman who has been plying you with a zillion bra fitting videos and tips, tricks and strategies to help you find the best lingerie for your body type, with the best possible fit, just told you to throw all that advice in the can and just get what you want.

{seems rather counterproductive doesn’t it?}

Don’t worry I haven’t completely lost it… not yet anyway.

You see, the one thing I’ve always noticed when I am drawn to a picture of a woman wearing lingerie, is the fact that she is utterly and completely owning her look. She can be shy and waifish or aggressively seductive, but either way, she knows what she’s wearing looks good, she feels like a million bucks and that confidence comes dancing through in every aspect of her being.

She isn’t fussing with fit, the colour choice, a wrinkle in the fabric, nope, she’s letting her posture, eyes and demeanor tell the viewer that she knows looks good and she won’t hear any different.

It may be that her lucky bra is now two sizes too small or her favourite garter belt has seen better days…doesn’t matter one iota if it makes her feel like she owns the world. Let’s face it, the majority of Victoria’s Secret’s models are all wearing the wrong size EVERYTHING and we can all agree that they look amazing… why? Because you would be crazy to argue with someone strutting and owning the catwalk the way they do.

So, there you have it. If you find something you absolutely adore… get it. If you have a piece of lingerie from a few years {translation=sizes} ago… wear it. If you have something that makes you feel powerful enough to fire Donald Trump, then pop that sucker on!

You heard it here first my friends, the real key to lingerie= CONFIDENCE.

Cheers,

Maggie
