I will admit that when it comes to spending money on clothes, bras are one area that gets sadly neglected. I only have so much money to go around and I get sucked into buying all sorts of adorable things that people will actually see. So I usually get a bra in a few colors, wear them until they fall apart, and call it a day.
But I have talked before about the importance of good shapewear and how the right sized bra can make you look perkier and skinnier. I need to start practicing what I preach and get some more well-fitting, good quality bras.
Aerie wants to help take the guesswork out of bra shopping. They have put together this great infographic detailing the 9 bras every woman should own. I am batting 3/9 at this point. Time to step up my game!
I love how helpful the Aerie website is when it comes to bra shopping (in fact you can get some tips on troubleshooting bra problems and bra facts 101 over on the Aerie blog). I also have found amazing customer service in their stores. Their sales associates are incredibly knowledgable about their products and what works for different body types and needs. I think I will head there this weekend to add a few of the “missing pieces” to my repertoire.
What are you missing from your nine must-have bras? What frustrates you about bra shopping?
