The Perfect Bra for the Perfect Dress

Shopping for that perfect special occasion outfit can be stressful, so our stylists always recommend “being prepared.” Don’t go out to try on special outfits in underwear that doesn’t make you feel good. Plan ahead! Wearing the perfect bra can make the difference between you feeling ok to feeling fabulous. Not only should you be wearing the right underwear on the special day, but also when trying on various styles. “It might look okay with a different bra,” is something Style Doctors hears daily, and that’s why we love Shapeez.

“As a stylist that’s seen over five thousand women in the last thirteen years in their bras, I can say – hand on heart –  that having the right underwear not only helps create the perfect foundation to any outfit, but can also boost one’s confidence.”

– Elin Mai, CEO

What’s Shapeez?

Shapeez is great for everyday wear, but also for those special occasions. Do you look in the mirror and think ‘yes, love the outfit’ and turn around and think ‘no, I could never wear it?’ We want to look (and feel) good from head-to-toe, and creating a smooth and streamlined silhouette is key. The Shapeez bras help eliminate those back bulges that so many women (regardless of shape or size) dislike.

When wearing just one layer of occasion wear (a dress,) the perfect bra should be just as important as the outfit itself. Special occasion fabrics such as silk, chiffon, jersey and lace don’t tend to be forgiving. This makes wearing the right bra even more important. So many women fear taking off their jackets/boleros for fear of exposing back bulge or side spill, but Shapeez eliminates all of that. They smooth out the back, and create a supportive and flattering lift a the front.

Plunging necklines require a certain shape of bra. So do one-shoulder or off-the-shoulder options. Maybe your dress has cutouts on the side, or maybe it has an open back. Remember to wear whichever bra or shapewear you feel most comfortable in, and a choice that will suit whatever you’re trying on.
