Marrying style with comfort 

By Pauline Songco, Staff Writer

Ever felt that struggle of taking off your clothes after a long, tiring day? When you want to head straight to bed, but that bra strap got tangled? Fret no more because Uniqlo’s line of innerwear has got you covered. With features such as soft cups, smooth fabrics and wireless construction, wearers will feel comfortable and able to move freely throughout the day. 
Inspired by the Japanese values of simplicity, quality and longevity, each piece of clothing for Uniqlo was actually made to address the changing lifestyles of customers. “Rooted in the brand’s LifeWear philosophy, our innerwear actually is designed to provide support, which allows women to move freely and enhance their natural features,” said Georgette Jalasco, marketing director of Uniqlo Philippines. 
She added, “These are pieces that not only highlight your figure, but also provide support to places where we need them most. Uniqlo innerwear is crafted to be light and smooth with nothing to leave on your skin or even to restrain your movement or show through your clothes.”
Beyond the comfortable clothes we want to wear, support also comes from the company that we keep. Taking into example is the relationship of fashion journalist and style icon Apples Aberin with daughter Samantha Sadwahni. 
Both writers, wanderlust and figures in the fashion industry, this mother and daughter tandem basically shares anything and everything, even style tips.   
For them, women need to invest in timeless basics. “Ever since I was a child, my mom always taught me to choose quality over quantity,” said Sam. “Affordability is key, and always consider the fabric.”
“Because fabric can spell comfort,” agreed Apples. “If it is something that is scratchy or hard, something that doesn’t feel right, you won’t feel comfortable at all.” 
Once you have the basic pieces, you can now inject your personal style. “Inject one or two trendy pieces to your outfit,” advises Sam. “It’s also important that it reflects your personality. A lot of people get into trends, but it’s not really them. What’s important is you’re comfortable. Mix in with your basics so that you can have your own look. Bags and shoes are always a great way to elevate style,” reminded Apples.
Choose staples that would bring out what you love most about yourself. “Know your body type and work around that. A person might be petite, but she looks good because she knows how to create long lines by using one color from head to foot or using silhouettes that are closer to the body so that she would look longer,” Apples said. “People take it for granted and probably think it’s (not useful) to know, but it is very important to feel good about yourselves,” she stressed.
Choose clothes that are simple and uncomplicated, Aberin added. Remember, easy on and easy off. “The right innerwear is the most important. Why torture myself? Uniqlo’s innerwear doesn’t hurt at all, it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything. It feels perfect,” she said. 
Uniqlo’s innerwear collection includes wireless bras, bra dresses, ultra seamless shorts and bra tops — all intimate pieces, building blocks of individual style that every woman should have.
