How much more fun can a Monday night get then cocktails and a bra fitting by the very shabby chic bra experts – Wacoal! I was invited by my wonderful friend to join her at the “Cocktails and a Fitting” event put on by Wacoal and b.tempt’d to get a bra fitting by a Wacoal expert and take home a new bra! First and foremost, the event was hosted at the Prescott Hotel in Union Square, SF in this fabulous penthouse suite! As we entered the beautiful suite that had a very glamorous-vintage New York feel to it, we were greeted with one of the ‘bra’ experts for a personalized fitting and got to speak with Liz Smith – the National Spokesperson for Wacoal – also known as “The Bra Lady”. I had a great conversation with her about woman and bra’s and learned that we need to get fitted once a year! It had been at least two years (maybe three!) since I had my last fitting. I am guilty of taking the ‘bra shopping’ approach of ‘just knowing my size’, grabbing a new bra and out the door I go! However, we do indeed ‘change’ as we get older and it’s important to get sized once a year.
I tried on a few wonderful bra’s and found ‘the’ one (the Wacoal ‘Embrace Lace’ bra) and I’m so excited (thank you, Wacoal!) =)
In addition to learning new things and getting ‘fit’, we got to view Spring intimate apparel and shapewear pieces – including – the iPants!! Creative, right?! We were also treated to some wonderful cosmopolitans and my favorite – cheese and crackers – while we mingled amongst other food and fashion bloggers – Bowl Licker – Chictopia – Digitally Chic – Gelica Rae. As we left the event, we were handed a pink Wacoal tote bag with goodies inside – a leopard and pink travel bag and b.tempt’d compact mirror – too cute!
Lastly, from the very own Wacoal’s bra expert – Liz Smith – here are The Eight Bras Every Woman Needs – how many of these eight do you own?!
- One seamed bra
- One seamless, unlined bra
- One contour bra
- One strapless bra
- One T-Back or racerback bra
- A push-up or minimizing bra (depending on your figure type)
- One sport bra
- One drop dead sexy bra
And did you know that after washing and wearing a bra 100 times, it needs to be replaced and that 8 out of 10 woman wear the wrong sized bra?!
Enjoy the photos below and ‘stay fit’ ladies!!
