Title: Color for wife's braces
Post by: MikeB on 31. May 2017, 02:40:24 AM
My wife and I were chatting over a glass of wine the other night, and the color of her ligatures came up. She has an adjustment on June 28th. What do you think?

She currently has gray. You can see her now at http://dereferer.org/?https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikeinreallife/.

As above, black.  Remember seeing a adult woman with black ones a few years ago, looked great IMO.

Sorry guys, but I'm taking black off the table. I don't care for the way they look. My concern with white or clear is that I drink a lot of red wine and I'm afraid they'll stain. Thoughts?

Silver, if available, is my favorite.

This may sound a little obvious, but if you are worried about the wine staining them, go with colors in the red spectrum. Colors such as red, dark pink, and dark orange should stay that color or darken a bit. Purple would also be good.

When I get my powerchains changed I go with colors that I feel bring up my mood. Sometimes I go all the same color and sometimes I do different colors top and bottom.

My situation is a bit different, because I am dealing with PTSD, and I find that the braces are helpful with dealing with the affects of PTSD.
The color of the elastics I choose for  my day depends on my mood. I have purple, green, pink and orange. I like the brighter colors, so will do orange or pink when I am in a better mood, and green or purple when I am down.

Unfortunately for Carrie's wine consumption habits, I detest red ligatures and power chains. Lavender is a possibility, however. Thanks for the input!

She went with pink, and ended up with an upper power chain. It looks fantastic!

Thanks for the votes, everyone!
