  • Tuesday Tip Day | Spring Cleaning Tips!

    Spring is almost here and with it comes Spring Cleaning!

    We may not always look forward to cleaning, but come springtime, our homes and closets are in need of a deep clean. From trash bags full of clothes to face masks and yellow gloves, Spring-cleaning can take on many different forms and be as in-depth or as superficial as you wish.

    This season the TLBC team wants to share some of our tips and tricks to help make spring-cleaning as easy and effective as possible. Today we are focusing on the Closet Cleanse!

    The Closet Cleansing

    Ever had that moment when you’re getting ready to go out and you think… I have nothing to wear! I need to go shopping!!... We have been there as well. While the TLBC Team will never discourage a quality-shopping trip, every outfit crisis is not a call for a wardrobe overhaul. Taking the time to organize your closet and drawers will help you realize that you have more choices than you think. It is a long process…but if done right closet cleansing can be a shopping trip all its own (a cheaper one we might add). The key to a clean and clutter free closet is zoning! Split your closet into zones. It can be by color, style, season, or whatever other category you choose. Doing this will de-clutter the space and make you more aware of what you have and what items you may need.

    The real benefit of spring-cleaning is that you get to clean out your closet and drawers of all the pieces you no longer need! Whether you’ve lost weight, changed your style, moved, or simply no longer want an item now is your chance to clean house! When making these wardrobe decisions the TLBC Team recommends that you make two piles: the “throw away” pile and the “donate” pile.  You may find that truly unusable piece that makes you wonder how you’ve justified keeping it for so long – throwaway pile for sure! Then there are items that just don’t work for you anymore, but someone else might love it – donation pile please!

    One area we are sure almost always ends up in the throw away pile is that dark, cold cavern known as the back of your lingerie drawer! Bras wear out quickly; in fact your most used bras should be replaced every 4 – 5 months! While some of your bras may need to make their home in the throw away pile, others are more useful than you may think! The TLBC Team recommends that you donate the pieces that no longer work for you but are still wearable! Free The Girls is a wonderful organization that is helping women in Africa become successful through the sale of second hand bras. Visit here to learn more about this great cause and donate your bras today!

    Once you have cleansed your closet it is time to take stock! See what you have, what you may need, and what could go into storage for the warmer months ahead!

    This process may take a whole Saturday, but we promise you will feel like a new woman when you’re finished!

It brings with it the possibility of totally new experiences and new memories. No matter where we are headed every woman knows that she has to bring her basics, and her just-in-case must-haves. Today we are going to walk you through some travel lingerie essentials! Whether you’re a week-ahead packer or the morning-of bag stuffer, our recommendations are sure to help ease any traveling stress!

     

    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! Our TLBC secret…make sure this bra has a least a little padding to make it perfect for both day and night!

    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.

    The resident TLBC strapless bra, the “Sascha,” is perfect for any petite woman. It features removable padding for extra oomph and straps for ultimate versatility. Available in smooth and lace cups, you're sure to find your favorite!

    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!

  • 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!

  • Petite Styling Tip #1 - Start With Good Foundations!

    Petite Styling Tip #1 – Start with good foundations!

     

     

    No matter if you are a AA or a DD the correct fitting bra can transform your look and your confidence. For petite ladies, the right fit can help add that extra oomph in that deep-v wrap dress or smooth and lift the girls to help add a feminine feel to your best work suit.

    Ideally we should have a fitting for the ladies every 6 months! Of course, we understand that you will not always have the chance or time to be fitted ...so be sure you are “doing the scoop” when you put your bra on every morning and are hand-washing your current lingerie whenever possible! This will ensure you are getting the ultimate shape and support for as long as possible!

    TLBC also knows that not every bra goes with every outfit. It’s not always easy to look fabulous, we know! Making sure you have the perfect strapless style for your favorite summer dress or a comfy and flattering t-shirt bra for your casual Saturday look are both essential finds! That is why the TLBC collection features a wide array of styles and colors to fulfill all the petite fashionista’s needs.

    Here is a couple of our go-to styles!

     “Lucia”

    This deep-plunge style is our bestseller and is available in 8 colors! With convertible straps and contoured padding, this style is versatile and will give a natural cleavage-enhancing look. The lace overlay is great as a sexy peek-a-boo detail and will be sure to add a little something extra to your favorite looks. Because it is a plunging style the cups are slightly closer set so be sure to “do the scoop” and if you find your breasts are wider set try our “Ethel” style for a similar look and flattering shape!

     “Julia”

    This full coverage demi-cup style is a great t-shirt bra that offers both a nude and black strap option for ultimate versatility and style. This style also features removable padding allowing you to control the shape and lift of the cup to best fit your outfit. The Julia band does fit a bit snugger so for those of you who are inbetween band sizes you may want to try the larger band!

    “Lucia Slip”

    A new edition to our collection, the Slip/Chemise, is a must-have basic! Available in both black and nude this flattering body hugging slip will give you smooth lines and a feminine shape underneath your favorite dress or skirt. With a built in Lucia bra, this lingerie piece fits and flatters just like our bestselling “Lucia” style and will leave you feeling comfortable and sexy all day long!

  • TLBC | Top 5 Holiday Must-Haves

    The Christmas countdown is in full effect!

    With only 9 days until the big day we are all running around hunting down the perfect gift. That special something that is both thoughtful and useful, that grand gesture that will make you stand out, or maybe that perfect little something that is both fun and affordable (not the easiest thing to find).

    The TLBC team feels your holiday shopping pain! As we all search high and low for presents and knick-knacks to make this Christmas the best one ever, we here at TLBC have put together a list of our Top 5 must haves this holiday season -

     1. Essential Oil Diffuser- Our sense of smell is an incredibly powerful thing and can enhance a mood or event. The fresh pine sent and the warm inviting smell of apple cider, for example, are bringing a sense of cheer to the TLBC office this holiday season. It’s these wonderful feelings that inspired our first pick the Essential Oil Diffuser...

    2. Wristlet/Mini-purse– Have you been knocked into by a big purse or two yet this holiday season? We sure have! It's true these bottomless Mary Poppins bags do tend to fit our entire lives and have the tendency to save the day in many a fashion emergency; but as much as we appreciate every nook and cranny of these bags a lady needs something smaller! This season the TLBC Team is loving our mini purses and wristlets! In support of something smaller this season we made these are second holiday must-have...

    3. Nail Polish Set- Like most women the TLBC Team has its girly girl moments and we do so love having a reason to dress up and pamper ourselves. I little glitter, a little glitz, and a little glamour is always fun! One of our favorite girly details this season is nails! Nail art has seemed to take on a life of its own and we are LOVING it! In support of this new obsession must have number 3 is Nail Polish Sets...

    4. Sugar Paper - Sometimes simple is best. When it comes to gift giving this is a mantra to live by! While everyone can appreciate big and elaborate often times a simple gift can mean just as much. This season The Little Bra Company has found our perfect and simple gifts at a wonderful company called Sugar Paper Los Angeles. Full of some of the most gorgeous stationary and paper products we have seen, and based in our lovely hometown of Los Angeles, Sugar Paper is the place to find simple and sweet gifts for your friends and family alike. Bonus – they have a target collection!! Target Collection

    5. A Little Something Special - The Holiday season is all about sharing cheer and great memories with friends and family alike. It is about sharing special little moments with those we love and enjoying your time together. The TLBC Team thinks that every woman deserves a little something special this season. Something just for them, and their special someone, to enjoy. This holiday season TLBC has some wonderful vibrant jewel toned sets that are perfect for that special holiday moment between you and the one you love! It’s a gift you’ll both appreciate, we promise! Lucia Set – Emerald/Sapphire , Lucia Set – Red , Tonia Set  - Emerald , Lucia Babydoll – Amethyst/Sapphire
