Bare Necessities: Shapewear styles in Clearance and at Semi-Annual Sale

I just happened upon this great buy yesterday on Lytess Leggings at Bare Necessities in Clearance. I do not know if they shape anything, but I wear these and for comfort’s sake, these leggings are tops. You can read a bit more about my Lytess Leggings experience here.

Currently they have sizes S/M and XXL left, at $29 Off!
They also have Lytess Plus Size, and average, Belt, (High Waist), Briefs, a plus size body corrective body briefer at 30% Off in Clearance.

If you can wear synthetics during the summer, you will find plenty of shaping tanks in the 25% Off Shapewear part of Bare Necessities Semi-Annual sale. I like to wear tank tops over loose over shirts, like Roamans’ gauze tunics.

You will find shaping tank tops at 25% Off, $36, by TC Fine, (bra band sized 34 to 40, and highly rated), These best selling tank tops come in black as well as this color below, have adjustable straps and molded, shape cups, yet work with or without a bra!?!

Maidenform’s Firm Control tagless tailored tank below is a bit less, $27, comes in sizes up to XXL, but only in white but looks like the Bail one I enjoy fall into late spring. My Bali ones are comfy!

You will also find shaping tanks tops at 25% Off by Flexees, Barely There, Sassybax, Cass Luxury Shapewear, Bali, Yummie Tummie, Miraclesuit and Nearly Nude.

They also have a wide selection of shaping panties, waist cinchers and other shapewear style.

The thing I like about shaping tanks is they are versatile. They add an extra layer of warmth, with no bulk, in the cool weather and if you can wear synthetics in the warm weather most of them will look good under an open button down tunic or top, even some suit jackets!

Still, getting Best Selling bras by Le Mystere, Wacoal and others at 25% to 30% off is always nice way to stock up on reliable bra styles!

It does come in black and ivory too, but full price in those.

A Brief Note on the Benefits of being a Bare Necessities Customer

I do not order that often, or that much, from Bare Necessities. Even so, last Monday, 5/7, I received a 30% off code from them in the mail, good until 6/5/12!

Just for the heck of it, I looked up my order history with them and my last order was shipped in October of 2011.

Additionally, I believe I have received get discounts from them in the mail, like this, in the past too! I just never had a chance to look into one of these offers until now.

Just as fantastic as getting a 30% Off discount, for such an infrequent buyer as myself, is the exclusions. This time, only UGG Australia, Wacoal and Wolford are excluded from this discount!

Yippee! Anything I normally would buy from Bare Necessities is included!
This is a nice way to try new styles, like Fantasie’s Rebecca Spacer bra below. It comes in sizes 30 to 36DD to GG, 38DD to G and 40DD to F. Or stock up on one of my favorite Elomi bras. Elomi’s Hermione bras are also spacer bras, and you can read about why you might want to try a spacer bra here.

This Fantasie bra above is too new for reviews, but I can tell you the Elomi one is real comfy!

I just think it is amazing that Bare Necessities sent me a Thank you 30% Off discount, good for nearly a month, with little exclusions, when I buy so little from them!

This is just one good reason to shop Bare Necessities I though everyone should know about and perhaps benefit by!

20% Off Full Figure Bras and more NO EXCLUSIONS

Time to try the new styles before they go out of size or stock!

Her Room is having a 20% Off Full Priced items, SITE WIDE!

They have an excellent selection of large cup size bras, full figure bras and other plus size intimates!

They have excellent brands we can all count on, like Elomi, Fantasie, Panache, Freya as well as Bali, Vanity Fair and a great many more!

I love Her Room for their reviews; however, I would not wait for many more ratings on Panache’s beautiful Alexa balconette bras below. You can read more about why here if you like, however now, using their current 20% Off discount code is an excellent time to try these and other styles!
Just click on this bra’s picture, in sizes 28 to 38D to J, and today at least, you will find their 20% off code across the top of the page!
icon icon
You can also use their banner in this page’s right column. This offer is good until 5/15/12! Panache’s similar, yet padded balconette, in sizes 28 to 38D to H is getting great reviews and is also, like all full priced styles, eligible for this discount!
icon icon
Finally, I have been watching this for a while, Panache’s Tango Luxe balconette is getting reviews, and excellent ones! This is a luxury Satin, version of A long time favorite bra style of many women, including myself, which you can read about here.

The only problem is the usual style’s is the rough, but oh so supportive, fabric. So far none of the women who review this new luxe style mention this, but they are saying these bras are comfortable, among other words of praise!

These bras come in sizes 28 to 40D to K, 42D to J and 44DD to FF!
icon icon
I think this is the best full figure bras and intimates deal I have seen in quite a while.

Her Room also has the reviews that tell you what size, even bra size, age and stature the women writing the review is.

That, and them having the most reviews makes Her Room an excellent place to try new bras, for me anyway.
Enjoy the discount and Happy Mothers Day!
