A Bra for Every Occasion

I don't know if you know, but undergarments have power and magic over us women to make us feel and see in a different way. There’s nothing more satisfying then when we open our closet, we can choose what intimates to wear, asking ourselves “how do I want to feel today? Do I want to feel more sexy, comfortable, romantic or practical?”

My thought is that all women have several options to choose from, depending on the occasion or their mood.

There’s nothing more satisfying then when we open our closet, we can choose what intimates to wear, asking ourselves “how do I want to feel today?

In order to understand what I mean by “occasion”, think about the moments that most women go through, both on a daily basis and on the most special occasions. These occasions include work, family moments, parties, trips, birthdays, a romantic date, sporting events, your wedding day, relaxing days, etc. In short, all occasions are an opportunity to express ourselves through the clothes and undergarments we wear.

“All occasions are an opportunity to express ourselves through the clothes and undergarments we wear.”

I want to tell you about a study we did at Leonisa, in which we managed to talk to more than 5,000 women about their closets and underwear, especially their bras. Are you ready to learn about the most important findings?

A bra for every occasion

Do you identify in any way with this data? Most likely, yes! Bras for every occasion have become one of the most decisive factors when buying undergarments. For example, we know that most women use their most beautiful and newest bras for special occasions such as going out with their partner or friends.

One of the findings that caught my attention is that when looking for sexy intimates, women search more in terms of silhouettes: bras, bralettes and bodysuits with designs that include mesh or netting. The reason is that sexy lingerie helps women feel youthful and feminine; a feeling that should be present in all moments of life regardless of age. Additionally, colors such as black, red and wine are go-to’s when shopping for sexy intimates.

On the other hand, the study also shows that women are making good choices in their underwear for sports and exercise. Most of them wear tops that are designed for exercise, while some previously had a bad habit of using their "older" bras for this. Our takeaway is that this occasion is ideal for exploring more vibrant bra colors, different back and shoulder designs and special details.

With this research, we can also conclude that if a woman likes a bra that she already bought, she will buy the same one in another color or buy a very similar one. So let's think, what are some clothes that can only be worn with a certain type of bra? For example, what would you do if you like a strapless top but none of your bras can be worn without straps?

If I were able to look into your closet, I would most likely find all similar bras: all with padding, all plain, all lace or bras that are exactly the same but in different colors, and so on. As women, we tend to “be married” to some clothes and become too stubborn when it comes to buying new undergarments. We are afraid to change, make bold decisions and get a little out of our comfort zones.

“If I were able to look into your closet, I would most likely find all similar bras.”

Are we forgetting to acknowledge the importance our intimates truly have?
Remember that these clothes are so powerful that they can affect our mood or self-esteem.

A Bra for Daily Use

I mean a bra to wear 24/7 on a daily basis. For thi occasion, soft and light garments are essential, perfect for any day of the week. Also, look for bras that give you the support and coverage you need to feel calm in your daily tasks; a bra so comfortable that you can move from one place to another without realizing you’re wearing one.

White, black and beige colors are the best options for daily use; However, to give your closet something new, shop for basic colors that are simple yet trendy: ivory, rosewood, wine, blues and greens. (add color palette)

    • Basic support bras are also a great and comfortable option.
    • If you are a lover of padding and enhancements, look for a bra with subtle enhancement and very soft foam for day to day use.

A Bra for Going Out

A strapless bra certainly is a perfect choice for this occasion. Think about one of your friend’s parties or a special occasion where you want to wear a tight dress and show off your curves.What’s better than to feel free and calm with no bra straps?

  • Look for bras with a deep neckline so you can wear them with dresses. Also, make sure these bras are plain so they don't show off with your outerwear. You can also choose a bra with enhancement if you want your chest to have a little more volume.
  • Our strapless bras have the technology to perfectly fit your body so you can dance or move without worrying about anything.

Remember that strapless bras are versatile, so you can also use them with straps. This means you can use your strapless bra for multiple occasions. These are some of my favorites:

A Bra to Feel Sexy

It's time to look at yourself in the mirror and feel sexy! Lace, mesh and light materials are the latest trends that will make you feel more romantic than ever. It’s the perfect occasion to say hello to clothes that you perhaps would have never dared to wear. There’s nothing to stop you and there are no limits, a perfect space for you to feel unique, beautiful, sexy and completely empowered.

In my experience as a Personal Shopper, I can tell you that I’ve consulted many women of different bust sizes, from very small to very large, who have never dared to wear these sexy garments. When putting them on, they are surprised and go through a roller coaster of emotions: at first, they feel strange because it’s out of their comfort zone, then they start to like how they look and they start to feel sexier. Finally, these women totally fall in love with that bra that makes them feel more empowered. If you want to know more about what size bra you should choose.

A Bra to Complete Your Look

Again, a lace bra or bralette is my go-to choice. Bralettes are a perfect choice because they combine the best of comfort and fashion. They’re so versatile that they are designed to show a little with your outerwear, making them the perfect complement to feel unique and stylish.

If you prefer bras that give better support to your bust, choose those with romantic lace and dare to wear them with mesh, subtle necklines or bare backs.

Although this is technically not a special occasion, there are many ways to combine your favorite shirts or dresses with a lace bralette that shows off your shoulders and sleeves.

You can combine undergarments with your outfit to create a look as casual or formal as you want. Our bras help you feel unique, romantic, sexy, risky, fashionable and stylish.

A Bra for Sports and Exercise

When it comes to exercising, comfort and support are the essential allies to have a carefree sports routine.

If you have ever used your everyday bras or your "older" bras for sports, drop that habit! Keep in mind that conventional bras generally have more structure and padding, so they can dig into your body while you're on the go.

For this occasion, you should look for bras or tops that are designed for sports: a bra that gives you the coverage you need, wide straps that support the weight of your bust and breathable, quick-drying design to always keep you feeling fresh.

Remember that when working out and exercising, you can wear bold and playful colors. Shop for bras with bright colors, play with the patterns and dare to use silhouettes with different designs.

A Bra for Lounging and Resting

We know that when you’re lounging and relaxing that you’d prefer not to wear anything fancy and uncomfortable. Have you ever been at home watching Netflix and you realize that the bra you’re wearing is not as comfortable as would you like? It has definitely happened to me! In moments like that, I decide to change into something more comfortable. I put on a super light bra, without any wires, rods or anything that bothers me.
