Sponsored Post: Going to Work with Lily of France

Undergarments are woefully ignored when discussing professional attire. You may be wearing the perfect wool suit with an expensive silk blouse, but that collected demeanor can be absolutely ruined by the wrong bra.

The biggest offender for improper bra deployment is loose bra straps. Fiddling with your bra straps not only draws attention to your bra, but it also makes you look fidgety and uncomfortable, both no-nos at work. Sometimes this is a problem because your bra is so old the elastic has given up on you. Upgrade to Lily of France's Extreme Lightly Lined Underwireô. It's super comfy and has a j-hook that will convert your straps to a slip-proof racerback style.

My personal bra peeve is lace under jersey. Wearing anything with texture under a knit adds texture to the knit. Then I and others are compelled to look at your chest and ponder, "Does she know I can see all the flowers? Should I say something? No, she must know." Don't make me or anyone else you work with have that awkward internal monologue. The aforementioned Extreme Lightly Lined Underwire with its two-ply back strap serves as an excellent t-shirt bra. The lack of embellishment and seams ensures smooth, non-distracting coverage.

You need a bra that works as hard as you do. Holy crap. That is some cheap copy. Don Draper is glaring at me disapprovingly with his fictional eyes. But cheap copy or not, it's true. With the variety of necklines and arm holes on women's professional attire (I grr at you, boatnecks!), it's a good idea to have a bra with strap options. Lily of France's Extreme Optionsô bra boasts 62 different strap orientations. It even comes with clear straps and a low back strap for conversion. This bra is the all-occasions little black dress of your lingerie drawer.

This isn't to say that your undergarments are now serious business. While you should still be wary of wearing a colorful bra underneath a white blouse, do buy some colorful bras. Wearing a business suit with a hot pink bra with leopard trim is a fun personal secret and a nice pick-me-up when TPS reports grind at you.

If you'd like Lily of France to work for you, visit their website.

It's not one you reviewed but I like the Perfect t-shirt bra. Looks nice and very versatile without the push-up, which I don't really like.

Because of the comfort, I would choose the Extreme Lightly Lined Underwire.

I would wear whatever bra looks the best under my clothes esp. the Lily of France brand because I can buy them @ Dillard's.

Caro said...

I have just had reconstructive surgery after breast cancer. I have no idea what size I am now - and I have not one single bra that fits whatever it is. But I am going to go shopping for some cute little sexy bras, and I am very interested in the Perfect t-shirt bra. Or maybe the convertible. ...perhaps I need the Lightly Lined... No, the Perfect T - for sure...
Thanks for this opportunity!
