My Favorite Bras & Bralettes

Favorite Bras & Bralettes angela lanter hello gorgeous

My “Reasons to Love Having Small Breasts” blog post was easily one of my most popular posts.  If you missed that post, read it here.  Many of you requested that I put together a list of my favorite bras and bralettes for you to check out, so that’s what today’s post is all about.  Let’s get started!

Everyday Bras:

An everyday bra would be one that has normal straps (not strapless or convertible) and can be worn with regular tops and tee shirts.  I typically always shop for these at Victoria’s Secret because I know exactly what size I wear and which styles I love.  I have worn this bra for years and really love it because it’s so comfortable.  It has begun to stretch out from wear, but I’d have to guess it’s about two years old, so that’s pretty normal.  I picked up this bra earlier this spring and love the fit and comfort even more.  It doesn’t have any gapping issues, which is very important to me.

Size Info:  I wear a 34B or 32C in these bras.

Favorite Bralettes:

I recently starting really wearing bralettes and I haven’t looked back.  I prefer this lace bralette from Anine Bing because the eyelash lace is so pretty and feminine plus it peaks out a bit when you wear a low cut top.  SAVE: Here’s an almost identical eyelash lace bralette at a lower price point that comes in multiple colors.

I also love bralettes with detailed backs for open back tops.

Sizing Info:  I wear an XS in my lace bralettes.

Favorite Strapless & Stick-Ons:

My favorite strapless/convertible bra is from Victoria’s Secret, but this one from Nordstrom looks like an exact dupe.  I prefer nude for strapless bras because it’s so close to your skin tone that you can’t see it underneath, whereas white can stand out under a white top.

As for backless options, stick-on bras are the best.  I typically pick mine up at Target for $25 in this style.  I just purchased these nipple petals for tops that are low cut, since the stick-on bras attach in the center.

Saturday Six – 6.11

Happy Saturday y’all!  I’m finally getting back around to doing another Saturday Six post.  You seem to enjoy these posts, based on the comments that I’ve received and I enjoy putting them together.  So here’s a few things I’ve been into this past week:

Chanel Diamond CC Flap Bag Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous

1. Bag Borrow or Steal.  I’ve always dreamed of owning my very own Chanel bag and Bag Borrow or Steal made that possible for me…  For the past 30 days.  I love the concept of this company because I just can’t pull the trigger (yet) on such a major purchase when I like to change out my handbags with basically every outfit I wear.  My first bag borrowed was the Chanel Diamond CC Flap Bag.  Every time I went to style this handbag over the past month, I got giddy because I remembered that I had such a classic beauty in my possession.  I immediately felt more expensive (duh) the second I put it on my shoulder.  The best part was that it only costs a fraction of the price (hello no commitment!) but you get to experience the fabulous feeling of carrying a designer bag.

2. Matt & I are on a mission to eat cleaner and healthier.  If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve been seeing all the healthy recipes I’ve been sharing lately.  I get more screenshots on my food/recipe snaps than anything else, so I know that a major bulk of my Gorgeous Fam also wants to eat healthier.  One of the things I grab every time I’m at the grocery store is this spinach and feta pizza.  It’s so delicious and super light on the tomato sauce, so less payback if you’re sensitive to acid.  I have several recipes coming to the blog soon, but in the mean time, keep checking back on my Snapchat for daily healthy bites and inspiration.

Pink Peonies Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous

3. Peony Season is my favorite season.  It’s technically mid-April through mid-May here in Southern California, but we’re still happily reaping the benefits of my very favorite flower.  My wedding bouquet was mainly composed of white peonies.  🙂

Target Pineapple Candle Angela Lanter Hello Gorgeous

4. I’m crushing hard on this pineapple candle for summer.  I picked it up at Target about a month or so ago and I just love it.

5. Podcasts.  I love listening to audio books, so naturally I also enjoy podcasts.  This past week I’ve really been loving “This Is Your Life” with Michael Hyatt.  I love the nuggets of wisdom I pick up from his podcasts because I find it so applicable not only to everyday life, but also to my life as an entrepreneur.

6. Speaking of podcasts, I listened to a particular episode this past week that focused on the value/importance of being a good conversationalist.  It made me realize that I’m not a good listener, but I’m fantastic at talking…  The problem is that someone who loves to talk and not listen is not good at conversation generally.  I’m so glad I listened to this episode because it made me so aware of how I want to go into conversations from now on and how I want to focus on sharpening my listening skills.  People value a good listener.  Are you a good listener, or do you spend half the conversation thinking about what you’re going to say next (I do!)?

Winter Skin No More

Winter is a an exciting time with the holidays and all that comes along with them.  But the colder temperatures means dryer skin.  If you’re anything like me, my beauty routine changes with the seasons.  Why, you ask?  Because my skin also changes with the seasons.  I’ve teamed up with Vaseline to help you combat those wintertime dry skin blues!

Vaseline Deep Moisture Jelly Cream

Vaseline Intensive Care

I’ve used Vaseline products my entire life.  I suffer from eczema and find it flares up worse in the winter.  Vaseline Deep Moisture Jelly Cream is so amazing for my crazy dry skin, especially my hands and feet!  I love the thick formula to help keep my skin super soft and smooth all winter long.  If you have sensitive skin, you should definitely check this jelly cream out because it’s hypoallergenic and unscented.

Vaseline Intensive Care

Vaseline Intensive Care

Consider adding this moisturizer into your winter beauty regimen to help keep your skin soft and smooth throughout the holidays.  I personally love coating my tootsies and my especially dry heels, and putting on a plush pair of socks at bedtime and then waking up to super soft feet!  Remember, just because an area of skin isn’t exposed to the cold weather or the drying heat from furnaces, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t need to be moisturized.
