With spring in the air and summer quickly approaching, I figured now would be a great time to talk about some basic wardrobe essentials. Call me old fashioned, but I have always had a pet peeve about bra straps showing when wearing sleeveless/strapless tops and dresses. And if you’re like me, you probably prefer to have a few versatile bras over having to select a different one for every type of outfit. Plus, I have found that having a properly fitting bra is a necessity in order for any outfit to look its absolute best. As for bra shopping, I personally find it overwhelming to walk into a department store that has hundreds of options to choose from and have no clue where to begin. So to make this daunting task a little easier, I used Kohl's Bra Fitting Guide to find my perfect fit before heading to my nearest store. In store, I selected a handful of bras in my size to try on and ended up with three different styles that are sure to work with any outfits I dream up! Find out which three styles I selected below and see what I wore them with!
1) I selected this body demi (nude color available in store) since it is a versatile everyday kind of bra that can be worn with a t-shirt, sweater, dress...you name it! A few things I love about this bra: its super soft touch, no-show cups, and smoothing wings which prevent lines and lumps on your backside. This bra seriously does it all!

2) I selected this racerback bra since I practically live in sleeveless tops during the spring and summer months! And as I mentioned earlier, I don't like for my bra straps to show and have found that a regular bra doesn't always fit the bill. A few things I love about this bra: the t-back no slide straps, the fact that the front closure doesn't pinch me, the feminine lace, and most importantly that it is comfortable.

3) I selected this convertible bra which is a spring and summer necessity in my book. And I will be the first to admit that I normally find strapless bras to be unflattering and uncomfortable, however, I have been pleasantly surprised by this one. A few things I love about this bra: it stays in place better than other strapless bras I have tried, it has nice coverage, and it is actually comfortable.
Here are a few more options to consider...
