Confidence radiates from within.
That stays true even in fashion, where it should start with your intimate apparel, according to Liz Uy.
At the Avon Fashions Intimate Gallery event, held in Pineapple Lab, Makati City, the celebrity stylist told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), "Kailangan talaga before dressing up, perfect talaga yung undergarments mo.
"If you don’t feel good inside pa lang, uncomfortable ka na.
"I mean, how will you feel confident kung hindi ka comfortable, di ba?"
The most important thing to consider is the fit.
Women make the common mistake of buying bras with wrong cup or band size.
Liz added, “Kailangan you are very comfortable sa fit kasi some are comfortable but not, it’s like sagging...
“Hanapin natin the perfect fit, and what is the most comfortable for you because that’s the most important.”
When it comes to designs, Liz's only tip is don't choose “yung hindi bagay sa personality mo, lahat naman binabagayan, e.”
EMPOWERED FILIPINA FIGURES. Avon Fashions Intimate Apparel Ambassadors Jennylyn Mercado, Yassi Pressman, Nicole Andersson, and Patty Laurel all agreed to what Liz said about the importance of wearing the proper undergarment.
For more than 10 years now, Jennylyn has been a household name in the industry as an actress, host, and singer.
Part of her confidence, she said, is her comfy intimate apparel.
“Being in the spotlight means I have to be 1one hundred percent confident in myself and my appearance. So kailangan ko ng intimate apparel na perfect ang fit every time.
“Basta dapat kapag inisip mo na 'I am comfortable,' magre-reflect naman lahat yun, lalabas na lahat yun, I am beautiful and sexy.”
Meanwhile, apart from the comfort, Yassi makes it appoint that her undergarments can give her the perfect coverage, especially when she's dancing on stage.
Though armed with the right band and cup measurement, she picks brassieres that “fit like a glove.”
She said, "I go from rehearsals to shoots to workshops to events kasi.
"Kapag sa dancing, may mga cart wheels, may sabit-sabit so kailangan comfort at covered.
"Kailangan secured talaga at hindi masakit kasi yung iba nagdidig-in sa skin, sometimes naman yung strap nalalaglag, everything must be secured."
For digital influencers Nicole Andersson and Patty Laurel, they both believe that what you wear underneath is just as important as how you feel about your look.
Nicole said, “As a fashion blogger, you have to invest in certain pieces, some are mahal and others are affordable, pero you really have to think about gaano mo siya masusulit.
“And kunwari sa picture mo, kita sa smile mo or sa posture mo kung ilang ka sa underwear mo because you’re like awkward, and then it ruins the whole photo.”
