A while back I complained about lingerie and the costliness of it. Well, I am back on a related topic. I went shopping last week for some new delicates. I ventured outside of Victoria’s Secret. Don’t get me wrong…I have plenty of VS in my drawer. In fact, I am a big fan of their new cheeky panty (ug, hate that word..panty.ugh) and the lacie thong is a goo alternative to Hanky Panky or a bit less money. Anyway, I ventured to a small local store to see what they had. What I found was rather alarming. Apparently the new trend in bras is UNLINED. Years ago VS had an all lace unlined bra that I LOVED. It was super soft lace and perfect for daily wear. In fact, it was a lot like this DKNY one that I tried on this weekend.
Ok….but here is the thing. Ten years ago when the unlined bra was popular and I wore one daily I was um…well….IT WAS TEN YEARS AGO! I am about the same size now as I was then…maybe on the small side verses the large size, but the same size. But the thing is that the lift element has gone away. Bye bye. The day I peed on the stick and saw I was prego I said goodbye to the lift. So unlined? Not sure I can do it. I don’t wear much padding. Just a tad…just enough to regain my lift. Anyway….are you on board with the unlined trend? Is anyone still reading this rant?
I had an image in this post but took it out (not of me!) ….images show up in the preview in my FB feed and I decided that none of the 17 year old coaches I am friends with, or my nephew needed that. Although I am sure they would have been just fine with it. Ha. Anyway…that explains the no pic.
Btw – have you checked out Aerie? Pretty good prices. Very good actually. Not sure how they are on fit though. It a line by American Eagle. Pretty sure that means I am too old for it…but maybe not.
