I can't believe it's already been almost two years since my mommy makeover with Dr. Frank Stile here in Las Vegas! Wow, how time flies! In case you missed my cosmetic surgery adventures, you can read all about my Mommy Makeover series and my personal story of botched plastic surgery and coming out ahead thanks to finding the right plastic surgeon!
Since my mommy makeover surgery I have been really careful with taking care of my breast augmentation, and making sure I have the right fitting bras. Proper breast support helps prevent sagging, ladies! I was extremely excited when Vanity Fair Lingerie announced that I was one of the 25 bloggers selected to be part of their elite ambassadorship for six months! They even flew us out to New York City for the Vanity Fair Summit where we stayed at The Refinery Hotel, ate at the infamous ABC Kitchen, and learned all about bras and bra fittings at the Fruit Of The Loom meeting room located in the fashion district!
Oh, and my favorite part was shopping for Vanity Fair Lingerie and getting fitted for my perfect bra size during Vanity Fair's fitting event at Macy's Herald Square! Eeeeeek! That. was. awesome!!! And I really did find the perfect bra size, style, and the most comfortable strapless bra I have ever worn in my life. The best part — I came home to find my husband complimenting me on who I looked like I lost weight! I have a little secret…
The bra style I chose was the Vanity Fair Beauty Back and it helped to smooth all the lines of my back to where I actually looked slimmer and had the appearance of having lost weight. It is amazing what a well-fitting bra can do for a woman's figure and what a self-confidence boost it was hearing my husband tell me that! Did you know that eight out of 10 women wear the incorrect bra size? That was me, and if you're reading this right now, it's also probably YOU too! Vanity Fair hopes to change that statistic by providing women opportunities to find the right fit. During my bra fitting at Macy's Herald Square I learned that I had not been wearing the right size bra!
Some takeaways I learned during my bra fitting: the cups need to cover the full breast, the straps need to be snug but still be able to fit two fingers in-between, and the band needs to fit well and comfortably by using the middle clasps of the bra when you are trying on your bras for the first time in the dressing room. I ended up purchasing a Beauty Back, Beauty Back Strapless, and a few panties during my Vanity Fair Lingerie shopping spree at the Macy's Herald Square. Best purchases ever! They're all my favorite go-to lingerie items since I returned to Las Vegas!
What makes me more excited is the opportunity to give back to the community of women who are empowered to be independent and bold career women through their transformations of getting suited up for that potential life-changing job interview. I'm talking about the Dress For Success organization and all the wonderful things they are doing to help empower women to succeed. As a corporate recruiter, I was always very grateful for the opportunities my employer gave me, and in turn volunteered time helping Dress For Success participants with suiting, mock interviews, and even attending their beautifully planned events.
Right now, women everywhere are doing. Women are running businesses, families and so much more. They yearn for the support and inspiration that comes from connecting with other women and celebrating their collective power. So it came as no surprise when I found out that Dress For Success is now partnering with Vanity Fair, as I know Vanity Fair shares the same vision and passion for helping women that both Dress For Success and myself have. For nearly 100 years, Vanity Fair lingerie has been the brand that women look to for undeniable support, lift and elegance.
