  • 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!

  • Petite Styling Tip #2 | Evening Wear

    What to Wear Wednesday!

    It is awards season! With the Golden Globes just past and many wonderful shows on the horizon, we wanted to take a moment to talk about petite dos and don’ts for evening wear!

    As the starlets walk the red carpet we all watch and judge, making our own mental list of best and worst dressed. For petite women, there are some sure fire ways to look fabulous and a few things that maybe we should avoid!

    DOs…. 

    1.Focus on the neck

    •  Look for sweetheart or plunging necklines! These necklines can help give the illusion of length and curves! (P.S. A great bra option for this look is our bestselling deep-plunge style "Lucia")
      • Amy Adams used this tip and looked stunning! (shown below)

     

    2. Work what your momma gave ya!

    •  Find dresses that taper at the waist and/or hug your shape so as to give the illusion of curves. Clean, sleek lines are your best friend. Not only will you look sexy, you will feel it too!
      • Emma Roberts pulled off this tip in her fabulous body hugging black number! (shown below)

     

    3. Embrace the Simple and Subtle.

    • Try for subtle detail and/or prints over big statements. We never want the gown to wear you and women with petite frames can sometimes be overwhelmed by big prints or big designs. A subtle detail or design can be flattering and flirty making the look perfectly petite!
      • Emilia Clarke pulled off this tip with her gorgeous and subtly embroidered gown! (shown below)

     

    DON’Ts…

    1.Too much of a good thing… is not a good thing!

    • Don’t wear too much fabric! Layers and layers of fabric can overwhelm a petite frame, and before you know it we can barely find you in the dress!

     

    2. Hemming, tacking, cutting…tailoring anyone?

    • Don’t avoid the tailor! It’s not always convenient, and it’s not always wallet friendly, but ladies use your tailor! Though there should be more petite focused fashion options out there, we must accept that often the perfect look is a couple stitches away!

     

    3. Bigger isn’t always better!

    • Don’t use disproportionate accessories! We all love to accessorize; it can make or break an outfit after all! But ladies, beware of the large bold accessory choices. Sometimes that large statement piece, no matter how gorgeous, will weigh down your look and make for a disproportionate look!

  • Enjoy The Little Things

    Motivational Monday!

     Here at The Little Bra Company we believe in the power of enjoying the little things!

    Life gets busy, days fly by, and before you know it another year has passed and we are left remembering all the big moments instead of experiencing the little ones.

    Our lives are filled with little experiences, good and bad, that all together form and shape our memories. Sometimes the simple things can be as meaningful and memorable as the big things. Today we want to remind you to take a moment and enjoy the little things.

    As you begin your week and dive in take a breath and enjoy that funny moment with your colleagues, that quiet moment with your special someone, or that lazy night with your favorite book.

     

    Xoxo,

    The TLBC Team!

  • Petite Active Wear!

    What To Wear Wednesday | Petite Active Wear!

    For all you ladies who have decided to step up your workouts in 2014, the TLBC staff is with you! Now, just because we are working out does not mean compromise on style!

    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!
