a few good summer bras

    I discovered Warner bras last year and am sold on them for comfort and LOVE that the strap adjustments are in the front. So much more convenient and imo this is where they should always be placed. Why are women expected to be contortionists when getting dressed!

  2. Glad you are back from vacation, Hope you had a wonderful time! I am sure you did. lol I missed you too last week.
    I am going to look for these oh so comfortable looking bras at Target or Kohls. I am not an Amazon shopper at all.
    Thanks for the tips on them though. Have a great day!

    It was truly a public service message to all women to address their undergarments. One thing I would like to add is to get an unbiased bra fitting once in a while. Nordstrom and some other lingerie shops do them and it makes you realize maybe you don’t wear the same size bra you once wore. Things change!! I see so many women in our demographic who are wearing unflattering, ill-fitting undergarments. Sad to say, things change up there and we need to make sure we are cutting a great figure while we are sporting those fashionable clothes from your blog.

    Great post! My one question, as it is every summer: I notice that bra straps and sleeveless blouses do not correspond. Is there any bra, or some sort of device, that keeps the bra straps beneath the blouse? Racer backs are often too high in the back of the neck area, and strapless bras are too high on the sides. Has anyone figured this out? My Walcol with an optional clip to hold the straps together in back is very awkward, and stick-on bras are STICKY.

    Try a bra like Wacoal or Chantelle. They give lift and shape that a larger busted woman needs. Warner is for smaller-medium breast. I’m a 34 DD and can never wear a flimsy bra!

    Thank you for discussing this area of foundations. Future segments would be great. I really like your Under/:Over pieces also.

    Please do a blog post for women with larger breasts. I’m a 36DDD and the struggle is real!!!

    I stopped considering Warner bras about 35 years ago when some smartypants wanted to get their hero badge for a cost savings and got Warner to shorten all the straps on their bras….I am sure it saved them thousands of dollars in fabric and elastic costs but I wonder how many customers they lost. I have checked back periodically to see if the straps had lengthened again but not so far….some of us need that missing length. Since this post is sponsored maybe Warner will read it

    Thanks so much for this post Beth! It’s so hard to find a bra that fits right and is comfy.

    Easy does it, no side effects, wire free and affordable! Warner bras check all the boxes and better yet, my local Walmart carries them too. I added three to my summer stash for a total cost of $45.00! I could easily pay that for one bra! As you noted, there are several styles and gorgeous colors available.
    Thanks for bringing attention to an awesome product!

    HI Beth!
    Thanks for once again emphasizing the need for good foundation garments—it always bears repeating! Warner’s isn’t a good fit for me personally (I am a Chantelle and Wacoal devotee), but these do look very comfy.

    On another note, I really appreciate that you disclose to your readers that you personally receive a commission whenever they click on a link to purchase one of your featured/sponsored items. Thanks for being upfront about that.

    I am eager to read about your vacation and to see your new bathroom reveal!! Hope everything went well and smoothly—renovations can be a nightmare!

    Best…and many thanks for your daily post!

    I am a smallish gal that had breast reduction done about 30 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did for myself. I went from a saggy dropped 34C-D to a B cup. Fast forward all these years and I am now a completely different size. I wear Wacoal and either take a 36D or a 38C depending on the bra. I think wearing great undergarments is the foundation (no pun intended) to any outfit. Even if I wear old jeans and a tee while gardening, underneath it all are pretty well fitting undies. My latest purchase is a Wacoal tee shirt bra. The one thing I don’t understand is why a good bra is still in the $60+ range.
