Elila Leopard Lace Underwire Review (42K)

This is the fourth installment in my Elila series. Check out this post for an introduction to the brand as a whole, this post for a review of the Lace Softcup, this post for a review of the Lace Babydoll, and this post for a review of the Lace Underwire bra. Today I’m reviewing the 2211 Leopard Lace Underwire bra in a 42K. I This is the mocha colorway. Their 42K converts to a UK 42H, which is a sister size of a UK 36JJ. I do not have the matching panty. The ones worn here are the Stretch Lace Cheeky Panty in a 2XL. This set was sent to me in exchange for my comprehensive and honest review. All opinions are my own and aren’t impacted by the fact that I got this for free.

How I Transformed the Gemm LG900 Bra (44J)

I told myself I wasn’t going to review this bra, but I thought it would be interesting to show everyone how I alter my horrible bras to fit at least a little bit better. As such, this will not be a traditional review and I will not be ranking this bra the way I normally do. I’ll just be assigning it a star rating out of 10 for it’s unaltered and altered states. I did these alterations super quick with white thread so it’s visible. It was literally a 2 minute job just to hold the fabric how I wanted it. Please don’t judge how messy it is. I was going to use someone’s sewing machine to make the alterations permanent and neat, but I decided against it. I apologize for the quality of the pictures. I didn’t think I’d be posting this review.

Torrid Cherry Floral Twist Front Bikini Top Review

I have to preface this review by saying that I am not sponsored by Torrid, and I did not receive any products from Torrid in exchange for a review. I have never once been contacted by Torrid. I stumbled upon the Torrid bikinis online and was so enamored with the way they looked that I went to my nearest Torrid location for the sole purpose of trying it on. I was incredibly happy with the result but felt that I couldn’t justify the cost (roughly $70 for the top but it’s on sale right now for $41), and my mother ended up surprising me with it when I went to visit her one day. Even though I received this as a gift, it doesn’t impact the way I feel about this bikini. I loved it from the second I tried it on, which you can see in this post.

Elila Stretch Lace Underwire Baby Doll (42K, 2X)

This is the fourth installment of my Elila series. Go to this post for an introduction to the brand and my overall thoughts, this post for a review of the Lace Softcup, and this post for a review of their Stretch Lace Underwire bra. In this post, I’m reviewing the 9311 Lace Underwire Babydoll in a 42K. This is roughly a 42H in UK sizes, which sister sizes to a 36JJ. I’m really excited to review this babydoll because it’s so rare to find one that’s made in a variety of cup sizes on larger bands. Up until now I’ve only tried cup free babydolls that offer zero shaping or support, and plus size babydolls with tiny underwired cups that are even worse than a cup free one. This set was sent to me for free in exchange for my comprehensive and honest review. All opinions are my own and aren’t affected by the fact that I got this for free. I apologize ahead of time for my photos. My camera was having trouble focusing on the black lingerie and some of the pictures were taken at a separate time in a different location.

#BodyPositiveBut

Earlier today I was browsing Twitter and kept seeing the hashtag “#BodyPositiveBut” being used in a large amount of tweets. I found out the hashtag was created by @DreddByDawn to call out the people who claim to be body positive while their actions indicate the opposite. I have mixed feelings about it because on one hand, I feel as if it’ll prevent people from engaging in the body positive movement. There’s a lot of stereotypes out there about how “hostile” and “exclusionary” our movement is, and I don’t want people to see this hashtag and think it’s shutting out other body types. Some of the tweets I saw were definitely antagonistic towards thin people. While it’s cliche to say this, two wrongs do not make a right.

Life Update (7/6/2016)

I feel like my last Life Update was really negative because that’s how I was feeling at the time, but it’s time for me to write another one to tell you the good and bad of what’s been going on in my life. It’s not all bad for once, although there are some bad things going on too. This is a really long update because it’s been four months since I’ve updated.
