I mentioned in my Radley post that I’ve been loving swing dresses for the summer (or smock dresses). In fact, this blue swing dress is an identical style to the one in that post. Because if you really love something and it is on sale, buy it in two colours, right?
Or is that just me?
Besides the fact that swing dresses offer maximum comfort, I also love them for a causal yet pulled-together look. They are extra easy to accessorize and let your body feel free. I’m a big believer in letting your body feel free, but especially in the summer.
That’s why about two years ago, I fully transitioned over to bralettes and underwire-less bras and it’s been one of the best clothing decisions I’ve ever made. I donated all my Victoria Secret super push-up bras (those that were still in excellent shape) and I haven’t looked back.
When I got home from work, one of my favourite sensations in the entire world was taking my bra off. So living that life full-time has been extra delectable. For many years during my teens and early 20s, I bemoaned my lack of a chest. I come from a family of fairly large-chested women, and somehow I’m the only one that really missed out on it.
So I compensated with bras that could be upwards of two inches thick and added two cup sizes (that’s really not a joke!) Even before I transitioned to soft bras, I parted ways with all those extreme push-ups and embraced the fact that I am far, far less chesty than average. (I read once that the average size in both the UK and the US is a 34 DD.)
Are there any other reformed Victoria Secret push up users out there? Or has anyone else done away with all their underwired bras?
What’s your go-to summer outfit?
