Bra Review: Negative Underwear

Listen, I’ve been agonizing over posting this review for weeks now. Guess why? It’s a mesh and see-through bra.

It’s got me thinking, do celebrities and models agonize over showing their bodies too? Is it just me? I’m not really sure. But there’s also something really liberating about it, and I’m hopeful will help you feel some body freedom too.

What I’ve done here, is placed photos of me in the bra (with censored stickers) below the “read more” line, so if you are not comfortable seeing those photos, please do not expand this post.

Now, the bra! I freaking love this bra. Truly.

It’s the Sieve Non-Wire Bra in Buff (they have it in Peach and Black as well) from Negative Underwear.negative1

Product Review: Fohm

We are going to take a quick break this week from the bra series and talk about this product that I think is super awesome that helps make the earth a little greener, and your bum a little happier! Meet, Fohm!

Your bum’s new friend that turns everyday toilet paper into a wet wipe!fohm 7

When I was proposed the opportunity to try this product, I was super interested in it because several years ago I somehow found myself watching an episode of a show where they were investigating the sewage system. I remember the man saying something along the lines of, “Yeah, they always label those wipes as ‘flushable,’ but they are not.” And they panned the disaster that was a zillion wet wipes in the sewage system.

Bra Stories: Aerie

Welcome back for week two of the bra stories series, where I’m sharing what I learned and thought about several bra companies bras when I tested them out over the past couple of months!

I’ll talk about several things:

  • Ease of purchase.
  • Comfort and fit in general.
  • How they felt in relation to my feeding tube that hits very closely to my bra band.
  • General Quality.
  • Return/exchange process.
  • Overall personal experience with the product.

This week, let’s talk about Aerie, the lingerie store that is owned by American Eagle Outfitters. They’re often praised for their use of unedited photos, and using nontraditional models, which is amazing and I love those things about this company!

I had lots of hope for these being some real winners (honestly I felt that with each brand, because I truly feel they’re doing good work.) But in reality, it didn’t pan out so awesome for me with the ones I tried. Let’s dive in!

I tried on three different wireless styles:

  1. The Real Sunnie Wireless Push Up Bra – in two sizesbrareview-6
  2. The Real Happy Wireless Lightly Lined Brabrareview-9
  3. The Real Sunnie Wireless Lightly Lined Brabrareview-12

Bra Stories: Harper Wilde

Hi all!

I’ve been working super hard on this bra project to share with you all. A few months back, I asked on an Instagram story if lots of others with feeding tubes had struggles finding bras that sat high enough that it didn’t hurt the tube.

I took the opportunity to buy bras from lots and lots of companies to purchase the bras I found that I thought would work best for my tube situation, and hopefully others! I also will be sharing a general review of the bras for those without feeding tubes as well!

I’m typically a save the best for last type of lady, but this isn’t Skittles, so I’m jumping in with my top pick first! Because isn’t that what we all need anyway?! So to start us off, we are going to be chatting about Harper Wilde!

One of my favorite things is that they are pretty much the “Warby Parker of bras.” What does that mean? It means try ons with no financial commitment! Which is what I’m all about when it comes to bras. Continue reading “Bra Stories: Harper Wilde”

The Story of Elway

I missed National Puppy Day due to travel, but I’m still going to share Elway’s adoption story!

It was April 25, 2015, Anthony and I had talked about wanting a pup together for about a year. I honestly don’t remember the catalyst that led us to the shelter that day, but I’m so dang glad it happened the way that it did.

We had just moved into our first apartment that was just ours, and we were so excited to make it our own and bring a new love in to join us. elway 1
