    • Visit the Right Place.

    Choose a store that has different variations of bras.This is where shopping online comes in . Shopping online has its perks ,one of which is the fact that you’d have alot of varieties to choose from all in the comfort of your home and phone( with no fear of anyone giving you the stink eye because you’ve stayed in the shop for too long rummaging through collections and not making any purchase —i’m certain alot of people can relate with this part).

    That said, i’d recommend BRIEF ESSENTIALS . A shop where you can purchase your Lingerie , Swimwears , shapewears , Sleepwears , Active wears and other Accesories without having to break a bank.

    The best part is, BRIEF ESSENTIALS launched a 6k shop not long ago.Here, you get to shop everything in that column for 6k or less.Exciting isnt it!..All you have to do is click on this link and it would lead you right to the shop.​

    • Care for your Bras

    This includes giving your favorite Bra a break. Wearing a particular Bra on consecutive days makes it wear out faster.

    • Know when to let go

    This part is self explanatory . When your Bra becomes frail and can’t do it’s job properly.Please let it go and get another one .

       Finally, Shopping with BRIEF ESSENTIALS comes with a lot of perks , including getting first hand information about your lingeries up in their blog and an excellent customer service amongst others.

      I almost never know my bra size ooo. Too much trouble for me 😒
      I always try them on my clothes before purchase and as long as it fits, it’ll go home with me. I blog at abujagirlsjournal.blogspot.con

      This is actually helpful considering that I hate wearing bra and I only wear one when its very necessary. The discomfort is too much compared to the actual mass I’m trying to put
