Six months after the end of January I tend to go on the hunt for new bras. Not any bras in particular, but one that fits perfectly and wont make this summer hotter than it is. Being the daredevil that I am, I took the Body by Victoria Challenge before stocking up on my mid-summer basics (nude, white, black) and a few fun pieces.
It's a lot easier than it sounds (trust) and you don't even a measuring tape. The Body by Victoria Challenge will make assessments about the current bra you're wearing and it's fit. This risk-free challenge offers free shipping and returns if you purchase the recommended bra size as well.
For me, I wore one of my regular bras (the no-frills basic kind) and went through the questions. I clicked on my current size, whether my straps fall off or stay on (they tend to fall), how the band feels and how the cups fit. After a few questions the quiz gave me my right size and I had the option of building my boutique or going straight to the shop. Obviously I went for the shop.
In the end I received the perfect shape, demi, and lounge bra - all of them were spot on, smooth (no lines) and incredibly soft. One of them had a lace detail and it was pretty close to a no-show underneath my top as well. You'll be impressed with their array of colors and styles - something for everyone.
I will admit my favorite addition to V.S.'s collection is their Lounge Collection. I legit bought a few (read: a lot) more of these incredibly soft bras in nearly every color. They are being marketed as bras to chill in but I think you can wear them under anything.
Sidenote: earlier this year I learned its not good to wear one single bra daily and instead let it breathe for a full day after being worn... Mind blown right? For that reason alone, it's good to bookmark Victoria's Secret next sale (August 8th thru 11th) in which you'll get a $25 gift card with every three bras purchased from their new line. Even better, when you shop Victoria Secret through ShopAtHome.com you get 2% cash back until the 31st and then 1% after that.
