Two Fabulous Links

In the past couple of weeks, I have stumbled upon two really interesting and informational resources—one on capsule wardrobes and one on bras.

First things first: what is a capsule wardrobe? It is a highly-curated, seasonal collection of clothes—about twenty to thirty pieces. And, no, it does not mean that you will only own thirty pieces, period—separate seasonal wardrobes (though, they will likely have some overlap), and perhaps specialized clothes, whether for special occasions or pieces for a specific sport or function.

However, at this point, allow me to direct you to the genius that is Into Mind. As someone interested in capsule wardrobes for years now, I am surprised (and a little disappointed) to have only recently found this gold-mine of information. I am still making my way diligently through the site and there is so much to learn! There are interesting articles and concept illustrations, like signature looks (parts one and two), proportions, and choosing a color palette.

In a similar vein, I came across a most interesting subforum on Reddit—ABraThatFits. This is quite literally a godsend for the ladies out there. Not only is there a measurement technique that actually works, but threads about fit for girls with different shapes, a host of guides, and measurement checks. To anyone tired of searching for the grail that is the prefect bra, I suggest heading over to put yourself a substantial step closer.

I suggest looking into both since clothes fit better when the foundational garments fit well (or, better yet, perfectly). The right foundation garments–bras and panties, even without any shapeware–can smooth out your shape (like that bra bulge) and improve your posture.
