Booby Trap, A Perky Giveaway

WARNING: All of my male readers (yes, all two of you...um, my brother and Taz) stop reading now because this is going to be about bras and not in the way that you would enjoy, sorry, I will blog about food, adventure, and single friends later.

Alright ladies, all but a few of my readers are wearing the wrong size bra. Yes you, um...don't click off,  I am talking to you and you need help. Up to 85% of women are in bras that they spill out of, bras that are not supportive, bras where the straps fall down constantly and bras that flatten, squish, droop or just plain look unattractive on the body.

Oprah even had an intervention and a revolution about it, so that must tell you that the fit of your bra must be a big deal. But, not everyone listened to Oprah, oh so sad. I am still seeing women shoving into too-small cups or allowing them to float freely in a draping sling. Seriously, the wrong bra makes you look overweight and frumpy when they are hanging to your navel.  Much the same way that plucking a unibrow can lead to awe and wonder (hey, there are two there!), a good bra can give you better posture and make you seem much perkier, if you catch my drift.

Now, first and foremost having a bra fitting is essential, many of the big department stores are doing them now. I know, bra shopping ranks right up their with your yearly doctors appointment. But, after you get fit the first time, it is no big deal, actually, GASP! it can be enjoyable to go pick out bras. No more sneaking into the lingerie section of a store and grabbing some boxed bra that does not fit you right anyway.

Oprah came out in staunch support of Le Mystère Dream Tisha Bra, so I had to try one. And, yes ma'am, I fell in love! (again, men, you really don't need to be reading this, STOP!) Seriously, it lifted and separated in just the right places while not cutting under my arm, oh yea... I felt shocked, elated and pretty dang HOT all at the same time. Plus, I love Le Mystère's mission that it is all about fit and how they understand a woman’s need for both fashion and function. 

Now for the exciting part, I get the honor of playing Oprah and sharing one of my ultimate favorite things with YOU. A Bra and Panty set from Le Mystère, an uplifting gift valued at $125.

DISCLOSURE: Transparency is everything! Well, maybe not in a bra but on my blog giveaways and in my life it is. I will receive a complimentary set from one of Le Mystère's collection and they are providing the prize for the giveaway as well. I really do own and believe in their products and frequently recommend them to my friends (that will listen to me go on and on about the importance of a bra that fits appropriately).  Once a winner is selected and their information has been forwarded to the sponsor, the responsibility of prize fulfillment rests with the sponsor. I truly adore Le Mystère!

    This post is so true. A fitting makes all the difference. After having to be fitted for a strapless bustier that would keep my DDs in check in a particularly ill considered bridesmaid dress, I have no shame in a fitting room.

  12. As a DD, shopping for shirts that fit right all depend on the bra. Having a good bra is PRICELESS!!! Thanks for the opportunity.
