LoveBrownSugar Chic: Wearing White in Wacoal Smooth Complexion

Style-obsessed fashionistas know that undergarments can really make or break an outfit. I wouldn't be caught dead in a gown at a black tie event or on a red carpet without a good supportive bra and a controlling bottom that sucks in the tummy and smoothes imperfections. They're a must!

So one of my biggest concerns with undergarments, whenever I'm considering wearing an outfit that is either all white or sheer, is finding the proper undergarments that will be seamless and undetectable underneath. Enter Wacoal's Smooth Complexion Collection. Unfortunately for us ladies of color, there often are not many options in the "nude" department at the store that work for our shades. Most nudes are of the lighter variety - this goes for things like shoes & also for lingerie.  Thankfully, Wacoal has taken that into consideration when creating their Smooth Complexion collection.
The collection currently comes in 4 different colors - White Swan, Naturally Nude, Praline (and for ladies my complexion or deeper) Coffee Bean!

Wacoal sent me three of the pieces in their Smooth Complexion collection including the Smooth Complexion T-Shirt Bra ($60), Smooth Complexion Long Leg Shaper ($40) and the Smooth Complexion Bikini ($18 or 3/$45). For this outfit sporting my favorite Fashion To Figure white peplum dress, I rocked both the T-Shirt Bra as well as the Long Leg Shaper for a seamless look.

The Smooth Complexion Coffee Bean shade is dark enough to be undetectable underneath my white dress. Not only that, the long leg shaper really got rid of my bumps & lumps, especially in my backside area, and it was actually comfortable believe it or not:

Ladies if you're my complexion or darker, I highly recommend the Coffee Bean shade. The collection itself is really comfortable and lightweight, which I love. It makes me happy knowing that lingerie companies like Wacoal are taking into consideration that they have consumers of all different skin shades and really embracing it.

In celebration, all month long I'll be pinning images to one of my Pinterest boards "My Brown is Beautiful" to celebrate this and other beautiful shades of brown.

Every skin tone is beautiful to me. Comment below and tell me why you love YOUR complexion!
