Underpinnings are everything

Blanche Lincoln is entering the last week of her primary campaign for re-election to the Senate, with a final television ad that places her in the Arkansas sunshine:

The thing about sunshine is that it shows everything to the camera. Including, potentially, your underwear. You might know (I hope you do) that the best color bra to wear under a white shirt isn't white, it's nude. What you may not know is that in sunlight, that rule goes for all pastels, not just white. Unfortunately, the Senator didn't. We can see a modest but distinct outline of her undergarment through her pale pink shirt.

Why does a nude color bra work better? Because the white bra is brighter than your skin - it reflects more light through the shirt back at the viewer than your skin does. When the bra matches your skin tone, the amount of light coming back through your shirt is even, and the shirt looks like a solid color. If you find that you have trouble matching your undergarments to your skin color, MySkins offers bras and panties in 20 "nude" shades so you can find the one that works for you. They'll even send a color matching card to you in the mail for free, so you get the right color without guessing.
