Vacation Mode Activated: The Secret to Packing Like a Pro, by: Taylor Jackson of LSL
According to Karen Thompson, founder and president of Lace Silhouettes Lingerie, the secret to a great vacation starts with the right foundation. I don't know about you, but underwear is the one thing I always seem to forget to pack – so I wanted to make sure I pack like a pro this year. Thompson sat down with me to discuss her top travel tips for packing everything you need.
What is the first bra you pack when getting ready for a summer getaway?
That's easy – The Chantelle Révèle Moi. As someone who has been in the lingerie industry for 35 years, I can say this is truly one of my favorite bras. It checks off everything on my list that a bra should have; it's comfortable, naturally uplifting, supportive, breathable (especially on hot summer days) and beautiful. Most people don't know this about me, but I actually prefer black bras, even in the summer. A lot of women tend to stick to nudes when the temps rise and the clothing gets lighter, but it's important to keep black in the mix too. This bra is a definite must-have in black. The lace detail is stunning. It lifts my girls and my spirits!
What is the most important foundation piece to pack for a vacation wardrobe?
Definitely a strapless bra. Everyone should have a great fitting strapless bra. My go-to strapless bra is the Chantelle Norah Comfort Strapless Bra. Personally, I struggled with strapless bras for years. I always felt uncomfortable and unsupported in them. Then we started carrying this Chantelle strapless bra and it changed my perspective. I promise I am not being dramatic – I am a 36DD and it's the only strapless bra that I don't need to adjust throughout the day. And the hidden underwire and smooth cups give me a natural roundness that flatters any sleeveless or strapless outfit I pack.
