Sensuality is not just an outer clothing expression. It is also refers to what you wear underneath.
All too often as we baby boomers age, we can settle for comfort over sensuality in our underwear.
The latest fashion trend is showing some or all of your bra. The ‘all’ trend I noticed in Scandinavia on our summer holiday when women of all ages were wearing black or coloured bras under white sheer tops. The ‘some’ trend is evident everywhere as women deliberately or accidentally show parts or their bra or their bra straps. Bra straps seen outside racer back tops or dresses are a common sight. In today’s paper (Wednesday) radio breakfast presenter, Robyn Bailey, is pictured showing part of her black bra at the neckline of her black dress.
Do you adopt the fashion, adapt the fashion or ignore it? Is it sexuality, sensuality or don’t care?
It is hard for a Baby Boomer woman to rebel against modesty rules you have been taught since very young. If you do not feel comfortable embracing the ‘show some bra’ fashion, ignore it.
If you want to adopt it (ie be a slavish follower of fashion), you need to feel very confident and have simple answers to those family, friends or colleagues who question your motives.
Always in fashion the best rule is to ‘adapt fashion to your individuality’. How do you adapt this fashion?
An Ezine in my mailbox directed me to this website – http://www.brasnthings.com/bras/bra-bazzar-extras . In response their clients, they have created bra extras to be added to strapless or convertible bras for those who want to reveal with class. There are lace-up straps, spaghetti straps that can be worn front or back, bow bra backs (on the left), halter back decorations & butterfly bra backs (on the right) priced under $20.00.
The two illustrated are from their 47 second video on the page and show you how to wear these under low back clothes. You may or may not want to reveal your bra strap but the decorative straps do add femininity, sensuality or drama with full bra support.
The other alternative (using the Bras N Things phrase ‘make you feel special’) is to wear them unseen. This is just for you and no-one else as feeling sensual for you first has no age limits.
There are bra charms (on the left) that can be worn on any bra. The lace-up design on the right can go under any top, dress or shirt. You could wear the centre halter-back decoration under a collared shirt. You could go simple and wear their decorative hook and eye sleeves that covers that part of your bra back (seen on the right).
The aim is not to ‘put on and forget’. It is to ‘put on and remember throughout your day’. Your secret smile lifts your happiness level and makes you attractive without anyone knowing why you are smiling.
There are other bits and pieces on this web page to also lift your secret smile plus very practical items like these silicone shoulder cushions to stop straps digging in.
Whether you go online, in-store or to any other specialised bra place, give yourself doses of sensuality for you first.
