Goddess Keira and Kayla Review (40N and 38M)

I’m kind of surprised that I never managed to write a full review of Goddess bras on this blog. I touched on the Goddess Keira in some of my Elomi reviews, but I never actually reviewed a single Goddess bra. I have a very close relationship with my Goddess Keira. When I first found out about proper bra fitting and started hunting for a bra, the first one that I tried and ended up finding a perfect fit in was the Goddess Keira in 38M. First of all it’s extremely lucky that I managed to find my Holy Grail bra on my very first try. Second of all, I still wear that Goddess Keira two and a half years later despite growing out of dozens of bras in that time period. I have a lot of nicknames I use when I refer to it, but the one that truly encompasses how I feel about this bra is “Old Faithful.”

Curvy Kate Ellace Review (40JJ)

If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that I’ve consistently had problems with Curvy Kate pretty much ever since I started blogging. I loved their Gia bra, and their sister brand Flirtelle makes beautiful padded bras that fit me like a glove. I’ve been sitting on a post for the past few months that’s going to discuss why I’ve chosen to boycott Curvy Kate, but I’ve noticed that whenever someone criticizes anything about their brand they get defensive and ask the person if they’ve tried their newer cuts. So before I release that post, I am posting a review of one of their newer cuts that’s proven to be extremely popular. It’s the Curvy Kate Ellace in 40JJ.

I did purchase this with my own money, although I purchased it from its previous owner instead of through the company or one of their authorized retailers because I no longer support them. I kept an open mind while trying and reviewing this bra, so I will be fair and won’t just bash it just because I don’t like the brand. This is a negative review, so if you don’t like that sort of thing I wouldn’t read this review.

Elomi Etta Review (42J)

Today I’m reviewing one of my new favorite bras, the Elomi Etta! I found the 42J for sale on Bratabase, and decided to go for it. A 42J is a sister size to a 36KK. The Etta is said to be made for a petite frame, so naturally I was extremely interested in trying it. If you’ve been following my blog at all, or if you’ve even read one of my bra reviews you’ll know that my biggest bra fitting problem is finding bras that don’t eat up my entire upper body and gape due to my short roots. This bra has solved all my problems, and is now a staple in my collection. I wear it at least once a week and have even picked up a second one because I love it so much. I bought this bra with my own money, and though I’ve worked with Elomi in the past this review is my honest opinion and is not impacted by the fact that I reviewed products for them before.

Nonie Creme Colour Prevails Foundation Review (Porcelain and Buff)

This is the first beauty review I’ve ever done, so forgive me if I don’t explain things well. I’m reviewing my holy grail daily foundation, which is the Nonie Creme Colour Prevails Blank Canvas Foundation. This product is on the pricy side for a drug store foundation, ($15 for an ounce) but I believe the quality is similar to higher end foundations such as Urban Decay Naked Skin. This foundation is available in eight shades ranging from fair to deep, and can only be found at Walgreens. All photos used in this post were only edited for color accuracy. There is no retouching in these photos.

One Year of Blogging: Recap and Future Plans

On September 12th I celebrated the fact that I’ve been blogging for a year. As someone that tends to be super defeatist and has quit more projects than I can name without embarrassing myself, this is a huge milestone in my life. When I started this blog a year ago, I did it because I wanted to provide women with my body type a resource to see how lingerie fits and looks on a woman of my size and shape. I have a very tiny (let’s be honest, minuscule) budget, and I’m certainly not a model. I think it’s extremely important for people to see how lingerie looks in a basic everyday setting. The average woman doesn’t have access to a studio or professional equipment.

THINX Boyshort Review (XXXL)

Today I’m reviewing the THINX boyshorts in an XXXL. I received these for free in exchange for my honest and comprehensive review. My opinions are not affected by the fact that I received these for free. I did a little write up before this that discusses the difficult and rocky relationship I’ve had with my period.

Periods Are Normal. Let’s Talk About Them.

Let’s have some real talk about periods for a second. Yes, even the parts no one wants to talk about. I think most people with periods can agree that having one isn’t fun, and the stigma surrounding menstruation doesn’t help at all. From the second we start having periods we’re told that it’s disgusting, and some reactions from the people in our lives can make us feel like having a period is unnatural. If you don’t like graphic period and sex talk, don’t read beyond this point. You’ve been warned. Any comments about how nasty this post is won’t be approved because I’m absolutely not in the mood for it and I don’t want other people to read it and think there’s something wrong with them.
