When getting dressed, I always try to create looks that exude confidence. Whether it’s an all black everything power outfit or an ensemble of bright colors and bold prints, I strive to approach each day with cool, unbridled confidence with my clothing choices. That also includes what’s underneath. Recently, I decided I needed to update my intimates, and what better place than Kohl’s to make it happen. The goal was to get back to collecting and actually wearing matching bra and panty sets.
Wearing beautiful intimates is just as important to boosting my confidence than the outerwear I am rocking. For me, pretty intimates aren’t just for your partner, but are a deeply personal expression of self care. And we all know that self-care is critical to maintaining a healthy relationship with ourselves and boosting our confidence.
Lucky for The Freehive, the Kohl’s General Semi-Annual Event is going on right now and ends on March 26! Also, You can get can get $10 off $40 on your purchase of intimates by using promo code INTIMATES10 until March 18. Below are some of my favorite Kohl’s intimates.
Again, I prefer my intimates to coordinate with my clothing, so I am always looking for coordinating prints. Kohl’s selection of bras is vast and offers tons of varieties to choose from. I found success and the best fit for bras and panties in the Maidenform selection. The brand tends to offer more generous sizing that is perfect for plus women like me. Full disclosure: I am generally a high-waisted shape wear girl who wears them with everything much to my husband’s chagrin. While like most men, he prefers thongs and the tiniest of intimates, I prefer full coverage support that restricts the jiggle. The happy medium? Cute full coverage bikinis or boy shorts.
Maidenform Custom Lift Demi Push-Up Bra
Take this Maidenform Custom Lift Demi Push-Up Bra and matching panty. I have a lot of black and white polka dots and stripes in my closet. This intimates set were a must-have, not only because of the dots (a major plus), but because of the fit.
Much to my surprise, the bra provides excellent coverage and lift. The support provided was really good. I wear a 40DD and sometimes finding a bra in a department store that doesn’t specifically cater to plus women is challenging. I have had lots of luck with Kohl’s bras. This one is so soft you almost feel like you don’t have one on, and the light padding helps to create a smoother appearance. The underwire is not cumbersome or restricting. The panties are lightweight and provide light support yet full coverage. They aren’t restrictive at all, and are very comfortable.
Maidenform Modern Beauty Lace Unlined Demi Bra
The Maidenform Modern Beauty Lace Unlined Demi Bra was by far my favorite. Initially, it was the color and the sexy allover lace that made me fall in love. Once I tried it on, I was completely sold. It’s stylish and comfortable, and functional all at the same time. The matching Cotton Dream Lace-Trim Boyshorts were soft and comfortable. I wish they came in plus because the size 9, the largest offered, was a little tighter than I liked. Otherwise, I really like the set.
Maidenform One Fab Fit Extra-Coverage Lace T-Back Bra
Lastly, I bought the Maidenform One Fab Fit Extra-Coverage Lace T-Back Bra. With spring on the horizon, I am ready to pull out all my t-back tanks and tees for warmer days. This nylon and elastane bra is seamless (major plus) and offers comfortable contoured cups. Because front closure bras that fit well are so hard to find, I feel like I hit the jackpot with this.
Find Your Perfect Pair Of Intimates
My goal was to refresh my intimates and find sets that further helped to boost my confidence. Thanks to Kohl’s, mission accomplished. I literally tried everything on before purchase and really looked at my “bare” self in a different light. It is easy to find things that we don’t like about our bodies: a stretch mark here, too much cellulite there, thighs that touch. But learning to embrace those “flaws” can be empowering and life-changing. When we stop subscribing to the pressures placed on us by fashion magazines and the media that can erode confidence, only then can we truly be happy with who we are as individuals. You don’t have to be a certain age or size to look sexy and feel confident. For that, Kohl’s has got you covered.
Take The Kohl’s Bra Fit Quiz!
Before making my selections, I took the Kohl’s Bra Fit Quiz. It consists of a series of questions to help the tool determine your preferences. Based on your answers, a selection of bras are recommended. Each of the three bras I purchased were recommended by the quiz!
