November No-more

Fall is one our favourite seasons. With each leaf that falls, we embrace the instances of change that are thrown at us, inevitable as they are.  One of our favourite ways to do this is in letting go of the old and embracing all the new experiences the world has in store for us

November or should we say “Movember”, was a month as eventful and exciting as the ones that preceded it.  We’ve a lot of juicy titbits that we want you to get a taste of. The whole month was dedicated to the wonderful men in our lives. Where we #ShareTheStache (shared) to promote awareness about Men’s health, testicular and prostate cancer and raise funds for the same.

The month opened with another party to commemorate yet another milestone. We set aside  a day of  fun and frolic amidst the increasing workload.

All our employees had a chance to get down and dirty during our Children’s Day celebration in the form of a fun drawing competition using crayons. We feel reliving a tiny bit of your childhood is definitely a memory worth recording.  Mid Movember also saw Desert Day where we gorged on amazing sweets and goodies (and we don’t mean lingerie this time).

The end of Movember was celebrated with much ado where we saw employees sport the moustache to promote awareness about Movember.  We sure do know how to have fun here at Zivame.

5 Fool-proof Steps To Buying Your Daughter Her First Bra

Bras are sort of mysterious to young girls – partly embarrassing because, well, its underwear – partly exciting because needing one means she’s growing up. She might feel ready to try one out, but nervous to talk to you about buying one. If you think she’s ready, it’s O.K. to bring it up with her. Tell her you’d like to take her shopping, maybe try on a bra or two while you’re at it. She’ll appreciate your initiative, and you’re doing it in such a nonchalant way will make her feel at ease.

Buying her first bra is an important step toward young womanhood for your daughter. It’s a big moment she’ll remember for years to come, so here are a few tips to help make the experience as fun and exciting as possible:

Reassure Her
A little empathy goes a long way.  Hold her hand, reassure her that you’ve been through the same. Tell her you’ll help her every step of the way.  Make it a girl’s day out that includes shopping and a whole lot of ice-cream.

Get Her Fitted
Women go  about their whole lives wearing the wrong bra.  Makes sure she isn’t one of them.  A professional fitting session by a fit expert is definitely recommended.  If you’re based out of Bangalore, be sure to drop into our fitting lounge:

Pick The Right Bra
Bralettes, training bras and teen bras are different names for the same item – small bras that are wirefree and usually slip-on. Sometimes they are available in the standard band sizes, but most of the time they come in small, medium and large.

Give Her The Right Guidance
Make sure she knows that comfort is the most important thing to keep in mind when buying a bra. Help her put it on, adjust the straps and have her move around a bit so she can see how it feels. If it takes a few tries before she finds the right one, tell her it’s all right. A bra isn’t something you can just run into the store and grab. It takes some time to try on a few and find one that fits nicely and comfortably.

Give Her Freedom
You know white, nude or black aren’t the only colour.  It’s okay to let her pick something that’s pretty. Even though she’s still a kid in your eyes, she probably has some preferences that you should be willing to acknowledge.  So give her the freedom to pick what she wants as long as it doesn’t interfere with the fit.

The Beloved Baby Doll
The re-vamp of this timeless classic takes on a few edgy additions. Note the sheer bodice with floral printed accents near the décolletage and intricate lace edged trims. Leaving a little to the imagination is mandatory. Choose a colour palette synonymous with fall. Designs in blacks and reds, take centre stage.

The Mod Mode
The 1960s Mod Culture seems to be  making a comeback, in the fashion fraternity. We aren’t too surprised that this trend managed to edge its way into our niche as well.

The Bullet Bra
With fashion from the yester-years making a comeback, why not lingerie? The bullet bra provides full support with cups structured to create a pointed silhouette. Popular in the 1950s, this style is mainly worn under sweaters to create subtle curves. It carried on to the 60’s, with an exploration that delved into prints and textures. The modern take features a sheer and satin finish that gives this piece the edge it has long deserved.

This form-fitting foundation garment encircles the lower torso, extending below the hips. Mainly worn to shape or for support. Go for a sheer or satin take to really get a feel of this eclectic style.
