After todays post, you’ll be prepared and ready to take on any festivities or mishaps that may come your way!

Ready to Ditch Your Bra? Read More About Ruby Ribbon Shapewear!
Can you believe I am not wearing a bra with my wrap dress? Not a traditional one. Today I wore the Sheer Classic Cami from Ruby RIbbon, under my DVF wrap sweater dress. As I mentioned in the video, with shape wear, less is more. Ask yourself, what part of your body is in need of a little smoothing, for the outfit you are wearing? Today, I was looking to smooth my back and tummy area. Sure, I would have loved a little support on my bum, but then I would have felt like a stuffed sausage all day, plus it wasn’t really necessary. If I was wearing a pencil skirt and fuller top, I would have chosen a thigh shaper or boyshort shaper, to prevent panty lines and smooth out my tummy and hip. Again, know your outfit.
I am happy to report, not only did I feel confident and great all day long, I had no pinching wires (which make me very grouchy BTW!) and I didn’t even notice my cam except to say I loved it!
