5 Lingerie Buying Myths Busted!

More than we’re willing to admit, there are a lot of different beliefs about lingerie that we hold true despite the lack of evidence or logic in it. While it is true that bra sets and other lingerie are essential part of a woman’s every day wardrobe, there are still some beliefs and practices that show how little we know about this intimate apparel.

Below are the most popular lingerie myths and corresponding facts that will help you make better choices the next time you purchase a new piece of lingerie.

Myth #1 Quality Lingerie is Expensive

We all know that quality comes in a price but you don’t have to spend a fortune just to get quality lingerie that makes you feel comfortable throughout the day. If you really want to save, there are a lot of ways to get value for your hard earned money while still getting the quality you deserve.

Shopping online has been one of the most popular ways to score great deals on lingerie. Mid-range brands offer great deals and discounts every once in a while to allow you to get various bra sets and baby dolls without exceeding your budget.

Myth #2 A good pair of bra lasts forever

If we can only make that perfectly fitted bra last forever, right? Unfortunately, weight gain or loss, pregnancy, sickness, and other things may impact the way our bra fits. No matter how we try to care for our lingerie, there would come a time that it would be wiser to replace it with a new pair. However, good lingerie caring habits may let us enjoy the best of our lingerie for 6 to 12 months depending on how often it is worn. Help maintain its shape by hand washing, air dying and storing it correctly.

Myth #3 Bra Sizing is Universal

Try buying the same size from two different brands and you will know that bra sizing is NOT universal. Different lingerie manufacturer create bra sets using different sizing information. So if you’re used to being in 34A on your go-to brand, it doesn’t mean you can simply pick up anything on the same size when you want to try wearing other brands.

Try to fit the bra before purchase so you know how it will feel against your breast and skin. Feel free to adjust the band size or go one cup higher if you feel like it will help in making it more comfortable. When buying online, remember to read the sizing chart carefully and don’t be afraid to ask questions whenever you think there’s something unclear on their information.

Myth #4 Shape wear is uncomfortable

Not all women are into shape wear but to say that it is uncomfortable without trying to wear one may be a very terrible thing to do. Contrary to popular belief, a good fitting shape wear can be really comfortable. It lets you wear your outfit in a much better way and also encourage you to keep a better posture.

Wearing shape wear to enhance your body silhouette is a great confidence booster and will let you look your best when wearing your office outfit or weekend dress.

Myth #5 A bra fitter/sales person is always right

When it comes to your intimate apparel, no one can be an expert enough to tell you exactly what you should wear and what you should not. While they may talk based on their knowledge and expertise, they still wouldn’t know for sure which bra sets will work great on you. Remember not to go for a bra style or bra size just because a sales person tells you it’s the perfect pair for you. Get yourself informed about the basic of lingerie shopping so you can make sound choices when buying lingerie.
