I’ll be honest – I have a love/hate relationship with date nights. On one hand I’m excited to get out, have an excuse to get dressed up, etc but the on the other hand I’m always stressed out about what to wear, how to do my hair, etc (yes, even at 28 years old. You’d think I’d have it figured out by now). There’s just something about wanting to look perfect that sends me into a total tailspin! Add all this drama to the fact that it’s summer so more than anything I just want to be comfortable since chances are it’s going to be warm outside. What is a girl to do?
Luckily I don’t have to worry about what to wear underneath my date night outfit because Maidenform has me covered with their super comfortable bra + shapewear pieces. Maybe it’s just me but I find it difficult to pick out my undergarments in the warmer months… probably because outfits tend to have thinner material, shorter hems, and thinner straps so there’s less room for bra straps and other undergarments to hide. For the outfit above I went for the Maidenform Pure Genius Racerback Bra because not only is it INSANELY comfortable but its shape falls in line perfectly with my racerback dress so there is no fidgeting with a strapless bra all night. I also decided to wear the Maidenform Shortie Slimmer since my dress is made of a thinner jersey material and I want to make sure everything is smoothed out. I love these shorts because they’re not as constricting as typical shapewear tends to be so they add a bit of control without being uncomfortable in the summer heat. I also love that there are no exposed seams or thick shaping panels so the shorties are essentially undetectable underneath clothing!
I like to keep my makeup on the neutral side (PS – the palette pictured above is EVERYTHING. Review will be up soon!) and I always make sure that I’m prepping with a makeup primer and finishing with a setting spray to keep everything in place no matter what the temperature outside is. Finish it off with a tinted lip balm and I’m good to go! Quick, easy, and summer date night appropriate.
With the combination of a lightweight outfit, the perfect Maidenform undergarments, and a natural hair/makeup look I’m ready to take on date night. How do you get ready for a date? Comment below and let me know!
Until next time 🙂
