I don't always wake up feeling gorgeous.
My clothes don't always fit the way I want them to.
I don't always appreciate the way my body looks naked.
BUT, today's post isn't about feeling unattractive, frustrated, or unappreciative.
Today's post is about things that make me feel pretty...
(taking my cue from Natalie Wood in Westside Story)
...like a perfectly-fitting bra.
For the first decade or so that I wore a bra I wore the wrong size. Heck, even when I worked at Victoria's Secret as a "Bra Specialist" for two and a half years I wore the wrong size. Truth be told, up until a couple of years ago, I thought that bras came in about four size categories:
- 34B (because honestly, doesn't practically every woman think she wears a 34B?);
- wireless/training bras;
- padded/fake bras; and
- bras that are so large I could fit my entire head in a single cup!
It was only about a year ago that I was properly sized (Thank you Neiman Marcus!) as a 32D. Needless to say, I was shocked! First of all, at the time, I didn't event know that they made such a size; and second of all, I certainly didn't think that I would fit into a "32" anything! But whaddya know, the Neiman Marcus bra lady really knew what she was talking about; and since then, I haven't looked back.
I only own two bras in my size (heck, those babies are expensive!), but every time I put one of them on I feel special, sexy - and yes, if I'm honest - just a little bit pretty.
|Isn't that the truth?!|
Another thing that makes me feel pretty is a little white dress (LWD).
I found this pretty thing at my local Plato's Closet for just $6.00!
- Broad enough straps to wear a perfectly-fitted bra: CHECK!
- Feminine details: CHECK!
- Defined (but comfortable) waist: CHECK!
- Classy and cute length: CHECK!
- Can be dressed up or down: CHECK!
What more could a girl ask for in a dress?!
And just in case my LWD is dirty, I still feel pretty in almost any cute and comfortable sundress (No black please!)!
Question of the Day:
So, tell me(!), what makes YOU feel pretty?!
