It's What's Underneath That Counts
Backless dresses, plunging necklines, low cut sides… So cute! We all know and love these tops but have you wondered what to wear under them? I have the answer! The magical, the wonderful, NUBRA! This adhesive bra is the OG undergarment for the difficult-to-wear tops. Nubra is produced right here on US soil and is so good I no longer own a strapless bra! Finding your perfect Nubra is as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Find your color: We have three to choose from. Fair is the lightest we have in store; I would suggest not wearing under a white. Tan is my personal favorite, good for under all colors! We cannot forget black, a staple bra in every girl’s closet.
2. Find your size: Sizes range from A to E cup. Nubra suggests sizing up from your normal cup size for coverage and a smooth finished look. (Ex. if you wear an A cup bra, you will want the size B).
3. How to wear: This bra is a gift from the fashion gods. There is only one downfall; it gives you a hand but doesn't hold you up. There is little to no support in this bra; however, you can create multiple looks! If you want a fuller look, you can position the cups higher. If you want to show the girls off a little, create a lift by positioning the cups farther away from each other before clipping them together.
Our most common question about this bra is “can I wear them multiple times?”. The answer is yes! If you take proper care of your bra, it should last you at least a full season of wears. Before applying the bra to your skin, clean off any lotion or residue that may be left behind. To keep clean, hold the cup in the palm of your hand and rinse with warm water. Use one or two drops of a non-moisturizing liquid soap, rinse, and air dry! After you are finished, tuck it right back into its storing container until your next use!
You may be familiar with Spanx and its suffocating shapewear… What if I said you could wear shapewear, maintain a normal body temperature, AND avoid digging or rolling of the fabric? Let me introduce you to Commando (try to contain your excitement). Commando has breathable, buttery soft undergarments that smooth your shape keeping you comfortable and confident all day long!
