Basic Beauty ~ Wacoal

This has been an enervating week: round trip travel to Paris for 4 full days of product analysis combined with a bit too much indulgence in French cuisine and wine.   Add to the recipe the on-going learning curve from having just launched our new website and the attention it demands, and I must admit my inspirational meter has peaked.  Sometimes one just needs comfort food.  Retreating to the familiar has a way of providing succor and reassurance after the intensity and excitement of continual stimulation.  I, for one, have always been taught that beauty is not skin deep;  character and stability are a result of a good foundation.  I like to believe that I can recognize the difference between glamour and guts and understand the function of each in a hectic lifestyle.

That is why I always go back to Wacoal’s Basic Beauty support when I am in need of physical sustenance, particularly with the fit of my bra.  This full figure seamless underwire style (855192), expertly engineered in Wacoal’s signature Bodysuede© fabric, might not compare in elegance and sexiness to some of the exquisite fashions I just spent a week reviewing, but when it comes to practical endurance, dependability and just plain relief, it’s the first bra I put on.  Believe me; I wore it on the day I flew home, easily an 18 hour endurance test.  Experience has taught me that a woman is only as beautiful as she feels.  For those of us (32-44, C–H cups) familiar with the urge to “just take off our bras the minute we get in the house” after a very full day, this style feels like coming home.

Beauty, Whether Moral Or Natural, Is Felt, More Properly Than Perceived.”                                                                                                              … David Hume

    Hi Ellen, thought I’d say hi and thank you for yesterday’s post about Wacoal bras. I’ve been hating my bras lately, especially since I’ve gained a bit of weight so when I read about the Wacoal bras I went online and bought two immediately.
    Can’t wait to get them!
