    1.The Beautiful but Basic

    Who knows what will happen on this fabulous trip of yours! You could end up on an adventure, meet a special someone, or make lifelong friendships. One thing we do know for sure is that no matter the scenario you will absolutely want a basic nude bra and a basic black bra!

    Some great TLBC options are the “Angela,” the “Julia”, and the “Isis”. All three will fulfill your every basic need and are sure to support you through whatever amazing adventure awaits!

    2.The Little Something Lacey

    A sexy confidence booster is always needed on a trip. Whether it’s for yourself at that big event or if you are going out for a night on the town, a lacey detail is sure to spice up your outfit and in turn spice up your trip!

    TLBC has many lace styles that would work great. Some bestsellers are the “Lucia,” the “Ethel,” and the “Erin.” From deep-plunge to vintage chic to maximum lift, these three styles are sure to make your trip more exciting!

    3. Strapless Stress No More

    Every girl should have her go-to strapless bra; the bra that works under every tank top and your favorite dress. This style is an essential for any lingerie drawer and should be remembered on every trip! Though not always used, it is a must-have emergency item that is sure to come in handy for those unplanned memories that make the best post-trip stories.

    4. The Perfect Panty Picks

    Now that you've got your bras let's move on to the all-important counterpart, the panty. The key with panty packing is variety! Pack every basic and then a few extras for those emergency moments. Nude, black, seamless, thong, full-coverage, color, print – the choices seem endless, we know – but this list is sure to keep you covered (pun intended) and comfortable on every trip.

    Some TLBC must-have panties are the “Angela Bikini,” the “Sascha Thong,” the “Ethel Panty”, and the “Lucia Thong.” These styles will get you through every look and every adventure.

     

    No matter if it’s a short weekend jaunt or a summer long excursion, these basic tips are sure to fulfill your every lingerie travel need. Now go have an amazing time and make some phenomenal memories!

  • Motivational Monday | Oscars Speech Edition

    Motivational Monday Oscars Edition

     

    Happy Monday!!

    It is the day after Oscar Sunday and we, like so many others, are reliving every wonderful, crazy, touching, hilariously perfect moment!

    The fashion was wow; the nominees were all amazing, Ellen did a lovely job, and the winners were all gracious and deserving! We enjoyed the best selfie moment to date (as did everyone else clearly). We started to crave pizza right around the time it was passed around, and we jumped on board the new ultimate fantasy couple train- hello Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Emma Watson!

    Whether you enjoyed it as much as we did or missed the golden statue’s big night, there were some truly inspirational moments that the TLBC Team would like to commemorate for this special edition of Motivational Monday!

    Last night, like many Oscar nights before it, was chalk full of beautiful, heartfelt, and tearful acceptance speeches. Touching stories and wise words were shared, all together making some wonderful TV moments.

    Jared Leto spoke beautifully about his mother and ended with “…to those of you who have ever felt injustice because of who you are and who you love, I stand here in front of the world with you and for you.” Eloquently put Mr. Leto. We thank you for those beautiful words and your equally as beautiful hair!

    Cate Blanchett once again proved she is supremely classy, and a little bit bad a** (excuse the strong wording). In a speech including many words of thanks and lovely messages to her fellow nominees, (reference “#suckit Julia, you know what I mean?”) she ended with a shout out to the strength and prominence of female driven films. Her strong parting words “The world is round people!” were some of our favorite of the night.

    Matthew McConaughey won best actor for his superb job in Dallas Buyer’s Club and once again regaled us with his flawlessly wise words and smile worthy life lessons. Sharing with us his secrets for a happy life, which include God, something to look forward to, and a hero to chase (incidentally it’s himself in 10 years). Matthew once again made us smile, made us laugh, and ended with our favorite “Alright, alright, alright!”

    Though all of the above were wonderful and memorable, this edition of “Motivational Monday” includes a line from the supremely lovely Lupito Nyongo’s speech. The best supporting actress winner was the epitome of grace and style last night and, with her words of thanks, she solidified herself as a true lady -

    Our favorite moment - “No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid”.

    So as you begin your week, remember that your dreams are valid, and this may just be the week to begin chasing them!

  • Tuesday Tip Day | When and How To Wash Your Bra!

     Tuesday | Tip Day!

    When and How to Wash Your Bra!

    Ahhhh laundry day…we all have it…we all wait way too long to do it…and, this just in, we may not be doing it right!

    Aside from separating your whites and line drying your cottons, ladies, we’re here to tell you, HAND WASH your lingerie! You finally found that perfect bra that makes you look in the mirror and say “are those my boobs!?”, now make sure it lasts as long as possible!

    Hand washing your bra will allow it to maintain the correct shape, keep the padding fresh, and the color crisp! There are a multitude of lingerie soaps out there. The TLBC ladies are fans of Eucalan and Forever New, but a light detergent such as Woolite also works well. Gently hand wash your bra in lukewarm water, using your hands to work the soap into the bra. If you use a specialized lingerie detergent, there is no rinsing needed! If you use another detergent, gently rinse your bra until no soap is apparent. Lay the treasured piece flat to dry and, if you're anything like us, wait impatiently for your delicates to be ready!

    Watch TLBC Founder Emily Lau walk you through this technique below!

    How To Wash Your Bra

    The other tricky question is WHEN do we wash our bra!? One key thing to remember is a bra does not need to be washed after every use, but it should be given a day of rest. This day off will help it regain its original shape and structure.

    For a little more when to wash guidance check out the diagram below!

  • What NOT To Wear Wednesday

    What NOT To Wear Wednesday

    For this edition of “What to Wear Wednesday” the TLBC team has put together a list of some of our “What NOT to Wear” picks for petites. There are certain looks, certain cuts, and certain styles that petite women should avoid and we are here to share a few of them with you and to give you some great alternatives!

    1.The Overly Cropped Pant –

     

     

    A cropped pant creates a stunted line on the petite frame and can make you look even smaller! If you aim to cover your heels, you will create a longer visual line and the illusion of height. Some standard-size pants that are “cropped” can also fit petite women just right! If you want to wear the cropped look aim to avoid the wide-leg style, as this will add weight to your look.

    2.Too Much Draping –

    While we all enjoy a good Grecian goddess moment, too much draping on a petite frame can lead to an unflattering look that ends up drowning you in fabric! If you want to embrace your inner petite goddess be sure you balance out any drapery with clean lines to help flatter your petite frame and elongate the visual lines.

    3.The Dreaded Ruffle –

     

     

    Feminine details can often make or break a look. Small details and little girly touches can help take a look from plain to glamorous or sophisticated to tacky. The key is to make sure the detail is flattering you and not overtaking the outfit. One such detail that petite women need to be careful with is the ruffle. A ruffle is hard for any women to pull off especially those of petite stature. A bold ruffle can often overtake and outfit, and it can be too heavy of a look for petite women. To add a feminine touch try a lace appliqué or beading instead of ruffles.

  • Petite Styling Tip #3 | Proportion is Key!

    Petite Styling Tip #3 – Proportion is key!

    Do you love bold fun prints, or the classic and sophisticated stripe, or maybe you’re an accessories gal and love to layer? Have you had trouble pairing these bolder looks with your petite frame? Struggle no more! Petite women shouldn’t feel their size limits their style. Having a smaller frame doesn’t mean you can’t wear prints, or stripes, or fun and flirty accessories. As a petite fashionista, you just need to understand that the key to these bolder looks is proportion!!

    Let's talk prints!

    There are some fabulous prints out there! From animal to geometric to floral; there is a print for every season and every personality. No matter her preference a petite gal shouldn’t feel as though she can’t explore the world of print. When diving into these bold and eye-popping patterns remember that having a smaller frame means you should focus on smaller prints or pick and choose how you feature the print in an outfit. The rule of thumb, when judging a print size, is to make sure it is smaller than your fist! That way in won’t overpower your frame.

    A great example from Extrapetite.com below!

     

    Let's talk stripes! 

    There are two key rules to keep in mind when choosing striped looks. The first- stay subtle! Large wide stripes tend to overpower the petite frame and can look out of place on petite ladies! The second rule -  remember to use the power of the stripe in moderation. Be sure to pick and choose where you feature stripes in your outfit or even on a single piece. A subtle and simple striped look goes a lot farther on the petite frame. Bonus tip, pairing a simple stripe with a bold single-color piece can really make the stripe pop!

    See this great example from yummistyle.com below

     

    Let's talk accessories!

    Alright ladies let's talk bangles, baubles, studs, and staples! We all know the perfect accessory can make or break a look and, if we are honest, our accessory drawer(s) are getting a little full. When it comes to accessories on the petite frame it is important to remember that you are wearing the jewelry, the jewelry is not supposed to be wearing you! With this in mind the TLBC team has some tips for petite accessorizing.

    First, choose whether you’re dressing your accessories or accessorizing your outfit. A look can be based around some key jewelry staples or you can choose some complementary pieces to complete the look. As a petite lady be sure to stick to this choice once it’s made! If you have a favorite necklace dress to compliment it. If you are wearing your favorite deep-v dress, find the perfect subtle dangle earring to match! Second, be kind to your smaller frame and don’t weigh it down with large, cumbersome pieces. Large statement pieces can end up taking over a look can be too strong on a petite silhouette.

    See Selena Gomez complimenting the casual chic look with dangle earrings and a bold cuff!

    Petite ladies should never feel as though their style is hindered by their size. The key is keeping everything in proportion. It’s the little things that make the moment anyway... right ladies!?

  • Tuesday Tip Day | Good Posture

    "Good posture is a must!"

     

    Bad posture is an act that many of us have been guilty of committing. It's hard not to let those shoulders fall forward in a slouch in the lovely office chair at work, or in the car during the always ridiculous traffic, and even at home during your favorite show. More so, as women we are more inclined to slouch our shoulders because our chest weights us down a bit more than most men. Slouch no more ladies!

    Allowing ourselves to fall into bad posture habits make our breasts appear smaller and can even lead to more sagging over time! Bad posture also affects the appearance of your neckline and curves your back in an unattractive way. Slouching can also lead to long-term vertebra problems and back pain.

    These negative qualities can easily be fixed by adopting better posture habits. Standing up straight with your shoulders held slightly back will help you immediately see a difference in your appearance. Your breasts will appear fuller and perkier than before, and by standing to your full height you will look and feel taller and thinner than before. A simple lift of the shoulders and straightening of the spine can alter your look and your confidence!

    Bonus…the correct fitting bra can help improve your posture! Not only will the correct bra help give you the shape you want it can help ease back and neck pain and improve your posture in the long-term. When you find the right size your straps should be sitting comfortably on your shoulders, and the breast support should be evenly distributed between the band and the straps! Not sure about your size see our sizing guide here!

    Some great posture correcting exercises are:

    1. Yoga – the poses and stretches will help increase flexibility and dexterity as well as strengthen your back muscles and promote correct posture.
    2. Pilates – Pilates will help strengthen your core muscles making your back stronger and ultimately help you naturally lift and position yourself correctly.

    Here are a few tips you can use to help improve your posture right now! 

    1. Squeeze those shoulders! – Every hour or so squeeze your shoulder back and together. Not only does this stretch feel great, it will help check your posture!
    2. Reach for the stars! – With your hands linked stretch your hands above your head. This will elongate your back and naturally lift you into the correct posture!

    So ladies shoulders back, head tall, and chest out!

    XOXO,

    The Little Bra Company
