Bra Washing Recap

I was speaking with a girlfriend last week and the topic of bra washing came up...of course, by now I feel I'm an expert in the subject. She mentioned that someone said to her that they will re wear their expensive bras atleast 3 times before washing because they were scared of damaging them.

Our thoughts? Not sanitary, plus if you take care of your bras and panties, this can be avoided. Here is a recap of our blog posts, web resources and videos on bra washing, just incased you missed them.

How Not To Ruin Your Holiday Dress

This year's holiday dresses demand amazing bras and panties to keep everything in the right place. They should also match your skin tone and be seamless so the dress stands out....not your bra and panty lines. Here are a two of our favorite Holiday 2009 dress trends and what bra and panties to wear so you won't ruin the looks. ..

The sheath dress (below) is a great dress for women of different shapes because it's figure hugging and feminine. Not only does it accentuate your curves but looks great with accessories that are bold. Make sure to wear a MySkins seamless bra and seamless panties underneath because panty and bra lines are sure to ruin this style. 

One-shoulder dresses or strapless dresses are the hottest trends this season. The one shoulder dress is dramatic and sophisticated and the strapless dress fits great while being ultra feminine. For both looks try the MySkins convertible bra which can convert to fit the dress you are wearing.

So remember, your bras and panties can ruin the holiday in more ways than one. Try MySkins for a solution that works.

My Skins Shout Out: I Love Pretty Things

We are very excited that the fashionistas over at I Love Pretty Thingshas featured MySkins on her blog. Why we I Love Pretty Things? Well, They answer a question that all women want to know.. where are the pretty things and where can I buy them. And who doesn't love pretty things?? We are definitely honored to be considered as one of the prettier things online in their new post Nothing But Flesh.

According to them:

"Doesn’t it seem odd then that when it comes to bras and undies we just sort of accept the fact that we’re all clumped into one generic shade of nude? And let’s be honest, it’s a highly unrealistic flesh color usually reserved for your “functional” bras and your granny panties. You know, the ones that are meant for your eyes only.

Well, a new line of lingerie is trying to revolutionize the way we view nude. MySkins bras and panties come in 20 different shades of nude, so there’s a shade to match everyone."

Thanks for the shout out! Go over there and show the blog some love and let her readers know how amazing our seamless bras and panties are.

Bra Horror: The First Bra Moment

Read as Melissa Chapman reminisces on her most embarrassing bra moment, the first time bra episode. We've all had them, and no matter how much we glamorize the moment in our heads, the majority of them end up in embarrassment giving us complex about bra fitting from that day forward. Here's an expert from Melissa's story:

She (Melissa's Mom) was determined to get my “girls” into a bra sooner than later and believed the only way to do so, was to go and get a proper fitting. I can still recall the scent of Bengay tinged with mothballs, as my mother and I walked into “Olga’s Lingerie” shop where we were quite literally tackled by a stout, grey-haired woman (who, twenty years later I’m sure was extremely well-meaning!) who made a bee-line for my- up-until that very moment untouched virginal boobs. She then grabbed one with her hand and took a squeeze, exclaiming in a very mater-of-fact way that indeed I would be in need of a supportive bra. At this point I think my soul may have exited my body, the embarrassment of having this strange woman accost me, was more than I could bear! On the other hand my mother- beamed proudly nodding her head in agreement with this aggressive saleslady and echoed her sentiments. I could go into greater details but honestly the flashbacks are too darn cringe-worthy!

Read more here, and while you are reading, remember, sometimes the best everyday bra in the world is the one that fits correctly, matches our skin tone and can be worn for any occasion. Check out for your perfect bra.

Why You Need A Nude Bra This Fall

Although Fall is known as the time to put away your summer wardrobe and start wearing warmer colors, light scarves and thin long sleeve shirts, your nude bra is one thing you don't want to put away with the summer clothes.

This year Fall is not the same as it used to's bright, it's off the shoulder and it's a little more edgier than usual. Plus, who says you have to follow all the fashion rules? Here are a few reasons why this fall you don't need to pack away your nude bra.

This fall, black and white make a ceremonious come back. In the past, wearing white in the fall or winter was taboo, now pairing it with black is chic. Coming down the runway are some stunning combination of black and white that you'll love...and that you'll need your MySkins' nude bra for.

Another hit this fall is bright colors...especially neon. The hottest neon color is pink, but other colors are also hitting the runway as well. With bright colors still in the picture, your nude bra should be as well.

Lastly, one shoulder dresses are everywhere, on the streets, on the red carpet, down the runways...basically around every corner this fall. Fear not, with a MySkins convertible bra, you can conquer the one shoulder trend with no problem.

And that's not all! Other trends like strapless ruffled dresses, edgy little black dresses, and accordion blouses are all more reasons while your nude bra and underwear should be around all year!

Bra Horror!! Freshmen Exposure

Talk about embarrassing. When Kayla was in high school not even her sports bra could protect her from a Freshman ritual. Here's her story:

"Two years ago I was on the volleyball team at my high school. I was a freshman that year and my school was kind of big on always picking on the underclassmen. So, I was changing after a game once, and I was next to some juniors and seniors on the team as well. I was taking my sports bra off and right when I got it off, two of them grab me and push me outside in a thong and no bra. I was banging on the door and then I saw the whole varsity football team walking by and whistling and staring at my exposed breasts. I ended up running around to the back of the building and hid until one of my friend's walked out with my stuff. It was the most embarassing moment ever."

Poor Kayla! To avoid embarrassing bra stories of your youth, remember to finally get the right bra. Try a MySkins' bra in 20 skin tone matching colors and leave those embarrassing moments behind.
