Fashion Find: Picture Yourself In Lingerie Before You Buy It
March 11, 2008
What: HerRoom and its quest to help you envision what specific bras will look like under your clothes
Why: VBS (visible bra sighting). We’ve all been there. Maybe you were wearing a little black dress with a plunging neckline, and the bow on your demi-bra peeped out over the V. Or maybe the back of your tank top dipped a little too low. Whatever way you slice it, it's totally embarrassing.
Luckily, help is at hand. The masterminds behind HerRoom.com are trying to eliminate VBS, one bra buyer at a time. They’ve come up with a concept that’s so simple, you’ll wonder why every lingerie company doesn’t do it: beside every bra they sell, they have pictures of how it will look under a standard button down, scoop neck, boat neck, square neck, deep V neck, and cutaway tank.
For example, check out how this Hanky Panky bra — a personal favorite — would look under this button-down. (For maximum visibility, the bra is photographed over the garment.)
Even better: HerRoom has something special for those of you looking for a new sports bra: “Bounce Test ” videos that show how much support you can expect from each of the high-impact sports bras sold on the site.
Check it out: All of the info and videos are available on the HerRoom website.
