I love bras cause I love lingerie, and there is nothing more relaxing to me than organizing my lingerie drawer on a Sunday afternoon. This process is not only a practical means of organizing one’s possessions, but can also be quite mentally rejuvenating, symbolic for letting go of the old to make way for the new….be it a boyfriend, lover, job, season etc. So this week, throw out any bras that are stretched out, faded, have warped fabric, crocked underwire, and/or pulled elastic and consider adding some of this week’s picks to your drawer. So with that in mind, this week’s entry includes what I call, Bra-tras, and along with these are my top three favorite bra picks.
1. A bra that fits properly and comfortably will increase your intelligence and productivity.
Case in point: Maidenform’s One Fabulous Fit Demi Underwire Bra
Maidenform’s One Fabulous Fit Demi Underwire bras are great for everyday use because they are extremely comfortable, provide sufficient coverage, and lie smoothly underneath clothing. I like to have a few of these in practical colors like black and nude, perfect for anyone who travels frequently and/or is a lingerie minimalist.
Where to buy: Macy’s, Mervyn’s, Kohl’s
**Oftentimes stores have Buy 2 get 1 Free Promotions
Care: Machine Wash Gentle Cycle or Handwash
2. Good cleavage will bestow upon you magical feminine powers.
Case in point: Wonderbra Lace Embrace Embellished Push-Up #7672
I got my first Wonderbra in high school, and from that day forth, I learned to embrace the power of the breasts. Yes, they truly are a beautiful, practical gift from God; they are used to nurse your offspring, they make your clothes look good, and you can make cleavage with them.
**When you try these on, bring a low cut top, and experiment with different Wonderbra sizes, paying attention to how each size can produce a different look. I find if you buy Wonderbras one size smaller than what you normally wear, this will help you achieve optimal cleavage.

3. The confidence boost from a bra that makes a statement is: Priceless.
Case in point: The Gangster Bra by Agent Provocateur
If sex isn’t a weapon, then I don’t know what is. I like this style in particular since it has a quiet, powerful, and sleek presence; all the characteristics needed to commit the most perfect of undetected organized crimes. It is so gangster. And there is something about Agent Provocateur bras that transform even the gentlest fawn into the sexiest siren. Perhaps it’s the construction or the amazing attention to detail, but whatever the case, put one of these on and all of a sudden you’ve channeled your inner Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe, or Theda Bara.
