A chronic illness blog, full of zest and vintage specs
I'm a 25 year old, vintage loving, wife, and puppy mama, living in Northwest Arkansas. I've lived my day to day on IV nutrition for the past 11 years due to a crazy booger of an illness called chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction. I love sharing my story and hearing yours.
Did you know it’s National Underwear Day!? That’s why I’m here, to share more undies with you, ha! Another bra review coming your way!
Honestly, I’ve been hiding out from this space because I’ve been working on something bigger and better (Shhhh! It’s still a secret!) But I decided to break my silence with another review for you in honor of the big day!
You’ve seen their advertisements all over the dang place, Instagram, Facebook, heck, they’ve probably somehow implanted their gorgeous advertising into your brain somehow.
But I’m here to tell you I’m unfortunately not a fan after the products I tried of theirs. Who am I talking about? You guessed it, Lively, of wearlively.com. The ones with the really super Insta-perfect photos, seemingly great quality and promote that they’re able to help all women’s boobies be happy. I was super convinced that their bras were going to be my winner. I was sadly disappointed. Continue reading “Bra Review: Lively”→
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.
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!
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.

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.
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’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”→
