How often do I need to update my bra wardrobe?

blog 22 july copy

 

Yes, there is an expiry date on your bra. You NEED to know the signs of a dead bra and know when it’s time for you to discard it. For those of you who have a profound bra collection – Quality over quantity ALWAYS. There is no point keeping those dead bras since they simply won’t be able to the job they’re meant to anymore, i.e. give you any support or make you look good!  

So how long does a bra really last, and what are the signs to look for to replace it? A good quality bra lasts a 100 wears. That said, it also depends on a lot of other factors such as the usage, wash, material quality etc. Here are things that show you it’s time to discard: (more…)

The lingerie rule book!

blog july 12 copy

Here are some rules that will make lingerie shopping a lot easier for you ladies. You can thank me later 😉

Your size does exist and is available – While it may not be easy to find your size, some perseverance sure does pay off. Look around and do your research and I’m sure you’ll find yours. Hey, we have sizes ranging from A to G in cup size and 28-44 in band size. Yup, that’s right. Also, since sizes vary from brand to brand don’t be surprised if you try on a bra that fits great but is a completely different size from what you’re used to.

Affordability is subjective – Ladies, what’s affordable to you may be super expensive to another and vice versa. Asking someone where you can get affordable bras is as vague as it can get. That said, if you have a particular budget in mind, it does help make the shopping process easier. A piece of advice – look at bras as an investment since it is after all the foundation of your wardrobe. Go for quality over quantity. A few perfect fitting bras can transform not only your wardrobe, but do wonders for your comfort and self confidence – they’re well worth the price. On the other hand, low quality bras may not last or give you a good fit which then leads to you purchasing a few more. I think you’ll get the point I’m trying to make!

Not all styles will suit you – Well, to be fair they’re not meant to. If you’re an E cup and trying on a bralette, it’s not quite the best choice is it? Also a plunge bra may not be the best choice if you’re an A cup. There’s always some trial and error involved in finding styles that suit you and give you a perfect fit. So, when you find a style in a brand that suits you, my advice is to go right ahead and pick it up.

That’s about it from my side. Hope this is of some help, ladies. Please do write in if you have anything more to add 🙂

The Super Support System – Buttercups & JobsForHer – For Everything a Woman Needs!

blog creative 17th may copy 3 (1)

 

The Support System is what this decade’s woman-on-the-go does not leave home without. This new system is a friendship, a mentorship, a supportive and relaxed space, all rolled into one. It is a system of connections that is carefully curated, painstakingly nurtured, and shamelessly enjoyed.

The support system may include friends, partners, domestic help, neighbors, and colleagues, and functions differently from the ‘mother/mother-in-law-only’ model. Like a television commercial for a popular aerated drink in the 90’s said, “Yehi hai right choice, baby!”

This system is custom-designed to each woman’s needs. The ability to choose people for you, your personality; people who make you laugh, have your back, and your trust, is what makes this support system SUPER.

The Super support system is a promise; a reminder that the same safety net that breaks a fall is also a trampoline propelling a journey towards greater heights.

At JobsForHer and Buttercups, we are on stand-by to SUPPORT… both the Fall and the Flight

Helping women negotiate their career path and making sure that they’re comfortable along the way, are goals we share..

We want to be a part of YOUR Super Support System. CHOOSE US.

Share a Selfie of your Support system on Facebook. Tag yourself and your support system, along with Buttercups and JobsForHer, with the hashtag #SuperSupportSelfie and win exclusive prizes from us!

No matter how many articles you read, how many videos you watch, until you have an expert fitting, you will always have that maybe 1% doubt about what the right fit is about.

A few reasons to get a professional Fitting from Expert Fit Specialists:

  1. They are able to explain, with physical demo, on what to check for to find your right fit.
  2. They are able to answer questions on any “uncomfortable” or unique questions you may have, specific to you.
  3. They give you added information besides size, on what styles, colours etc you must chose.
  4. They help you understand how to care for the bras you purchase.
  5. That last bit of doubt, about whether it’s a the right fit.. Disappears.
