On Being a Mom, a Woman, and What Helps Us Look Gorgeous at Both.
I told you all before BlogHer this year I wasn’t a shopper. I like clothes, hate to shop for them. Well friends, the same goes for underwear. Mostly because underwear is so darned expensive.
It just boggles my mind to pay $75 for a bra that will (no matter how much I pledge to wash it on delicates only) end up in the whitest whites wash cycle at some point. Then it’s all downhill from there. So I usually just grab them off the racks as I need them. After I got married and the honeymoon luster wore off, the only expensive bras I bought were when I was nursing Bella.
But there is a part of me that wants that expensive look again, that loves the beautiful, sexy line without the price tag, that loves being a mom, but also loves looking like a woman. I also know it’s important to present a polished look while being out and about and while feeling beautiful and comfortable underneath my clothes.
BlogHer and Vanity Fair® invited me to review their gorgeous new line of bras and underwear. The Modern Coverage Collection was created in several different styles for the unique figures of women. It has less cup coverage for that sexy, womanly look while it’s still designed with comfort and support in mind. Can I just say that I totally loved opening the Vanity Fair® package?
So did Sam.
ANYWAY. I was sent a few sets from a couple of their lines, and included my very favorites of the six below.
So soft, so comfortable. I loved the way the Illumination® String Bikini looks and I love the cut. They wash really well — I’ve managed to remember to put them on delicate so far, but they are sturdy enough to hold up in the whites cycle as well. One of Vanity Fair‘s best-selling styles, the Illumination® String Bikini offers medium coverage, won’t ride up and is available in a multitude of colors. It’s perfect for everyday. Retails for $9.50, or 3 for $21.
LOVE their Front Close Underwire Bra. Love it. I adore that it unsnaps in the front and features a simple rhinestone-clad clasp for sleek everyday elegance. The adjustable J-hook strap — great for racerback styles — and smoothing back fabric make this versatile bra a must in your lingerie collection. I liked how covered the underwire was — no chances of it hurting or poking through like on cheaply made bras. Retails for $34. Their Modern Coverage Collection includes:
- Vanity Fair® Look Lifted Underwire Bra
- Vanity Fair® Advanced Support Underwire Bra
- Vanity Fair® Front Close Underwire Bra
- Seamless Bikini
- Seamless Brief
- Seamless Hi-Cut
- Seamless Hipster
