The Not-So-Basic Guide to Basics

Must read

When it comes to fashion advice, it’s akin to life—it starts with a strong foundation. And the secret to a stylish wardrobe is to build it around pieces that fit well and properly. The simpler the item, the more it should look like it was made for your body’s proportions, whether it’s having the proper sleeve length, shoulders that sit just so, or a waist that hugs your silhouette perfectly.

This is especially true when it comes to bras. In fact, most experts recommend getting fit at least once a year, or when your body changes—and that’s where Wacoal comes in. The bra experts offer 76 sizes that range from A to I cup, with band sizes from 30 to 46. If you’re looking for a little help, the brand offers mybraFit™, a patent pending AI-powered digital fit tool that’ll help determine your accurate size within minutes and recommend the right bras for your unique shape. Everything is measured down to the millimeter (from the comfort of your own home, no less) to ensure you get the precise level of support and smoothing you require. You can also schedule a virtual consultation for a more personalized experience.

And on top of the right bra? You’ll want to add on other smart and versatile basics, of course. Read on to shop 12 pieces for a stylish and functional wardrobe.
