Happy New Year babes! This time of year can be exciting, full of growth and possibility; but it can also be filled with diet pressure and toxic messaging. The deluge of “New Year, New You” weight loss ads have already begun, and it can feel like every other commercial is specifically telling you that you are not yet good enough. It takes real mental work to counteract all that messaging, so I’m making a different type of resolution this year. Instead of worrying about how I am going to change, I’m focusing on the opposite: Being more happy and comfortable in my own skin. So I’m very excited to kick the year off by partnering with Evelyn & Bobbie, a company that supports this goal by using tech innovations to create intimates that offer pain-free support (literally and figuratively).
I’m not new to Evelyn & Bobbie as a brand: I’ve been wearing their underwear for almost a year now, and they are my go-to for seamless hipsters and bikinis. So I’ve known the quality is there, but I still was more than a bit skeptical when it came to their wireless bras – specifically, with them working for *me.* I saw the Defy Bra looking amazing on other plus size women with smaller busts, but my cup size is technically above the current Evelyn & Bobbie range, and while I love soft bralettes for loungewear and very casual days, I didn’t really believe that any wire-free option could provide solid day-to-day support for my heavy boobs. I’m always keeping an eye on new companies serving the plus size customer though, and after reading about the science behind their product development, I was intrigued enough to give it a shot, so I reached out to see about testing the Defy Bra on my 38I/40H bust.
