Here is to self-love beyond Valentine’s Day

February 26, 2023

Self-care and love is an individual act that is sacred to each and every one of us. Regardless of what your love language is to yourself, the primary objective is to put your well-being first. No more short-changing yourself and just doing what is best for your mind, body and soul. A great place to start is with your underwear, as what you put on first tends to set the tone for the remainder of your day.

For those of us who wear a bra, we know how this undergarment can impact the rest of our day. If it’s too big or small, it results in discomfort and leaves you feeling at your worst. In contrast, when you slip into something that fits and is beautiful and sexy, it immediately lifts your spirits. According to the Bra Guru, the average bra size in South Africa is 34B. We all know that breasts go up to all sorts of sizes. Ackermans is one of the few retailers that caters for your tig ‘ol bitties and offers a bra size that goes up to size G-Cup in selected styles. Say it with me now, “I #LoveThisForMe.”

In addition to feeling great, there is a myriad of reasons why you need to gift yourself with a good bra. Here are my top 5 reasons to make your way to Ackermans and get a bra that fits well and looks good.

Mix and match to change it up from time to time.

Five reasons to get yourself a good bra

1. Comfort 

I cannot stress this one enough. A bra you can wear throughout the day that doesn’t cause discomfort, irritation or pain is an investment.

2. Support

Support is more than just lifting the breasts. It can also prevent and reduce back pain that is typically associated with bigger breasts. It will also improve your posture by evenly distributing the weight of your breasts throughout your chest.

3. Enhanced appearance

From strapless to t-shirt bras, pushups, plunge bras, and everything in between, your choice of bra can drastically improve your silhouette. This, in turn, can turn an outfit from just okay to great!

4. It will last longer

An investment. A splurge we all need. Go, get fitted, try it on and thank yourself for getting yourself a treat that will last longer. 

5. Boost confidence

Wearing your best, feeling comfortable and looking fabulous is a surefire way to boost your confidence. Feel it, embrace it and know you are worthy.

While basking in your glory and treating yourself to much-needed R&R, feel love in the form of a hug as you wrap yourself in a Satin knee-length gown from Ackermans. A limited edition item, it is available in mauve and red.

Perfect in every colour and style, a survey conducted by Idiva found that the most popular lingerie colour in the world is white, followed by lilac, blue and purple. Whichever colour you choose, just be sure to gift yourself with a positive attitude that will set the tone for the day and the coming – or remainder of the – week.
