Listen, pregnancy is a miracle, but it can also be a lot of work. And very uncomfortable. And painful!
So we want to help in the boob department, because they can get sore, they grow, they are sensitive, and they need support! So these bras are fabulous options for various stages of pregnancy, including nursing if that’s something you’re into or can do, and some nice transition pieces that will feel amazing – even when you don’t.
Parfait Underwire Microfiber And Lace Nursing Bra
This bra is so sleek and so cool, you may not even realize at first that it’s for nursing!
The soft material will feel so nice along sensitive breasts, and the snap closure is super easy to use.
Cotton Crossover Wire-Free Cami Bra by Elita Lingerie
Sometimes you need a trusty bra that can just slip on, and stretches enough for your changing body.
This wire-free option has a flattering crossover detail that can also provide extra room for a growing bust. It’s a light bra that feels super soft and comfortable.
Baby And Me Cotton Wire Free Nursing Bra by Warner’s
Once again, how can you even tell it’s a nursing bra?
Well it is, and a cute, cozy one at that. You get enough support to forgo the underwire, and the cups are made to be super soft and plush for even the most sensitive busts.
Nana Wire-Free Bra by Miel
You may notice a trend here of wireless bras … because they are SO comfortable and still help support your bust, if they’re made right!
Take this simple bra that has some nice ruching, with adjustable straps and plenty of room to breathe. It comes in some really fun colors too.
Body Make Up Essentials Magic Wire Spacer T-Shirt Bra by Triumph
In moments where you’re really missing how that underwire works, try Magic Wire. You will fall in love!
Magic Wire is a soft, yet durable and powerful alternative to metal wires, which can be a fantastic relief for ladies who need that super pushed-up lift but the wire is just too painful.
Montelle Wireless Padded Seamless T-Shirt Bra
Your last wireless option is seriously a must-have for all, and works before, during, and after pregnancy. You get plush comfort, modern colors, ideal support, and so much more.
Bonus Idea: Silicone Shoulder Cushions by Fashion Essentials
Because your shoulders can HURT holding up those things all day!
These are actually great to give your back and shoulders some relief, and to keep those bra straps from digging in.

Lingerie is more than just something we have to wear, or at least, we’re supposed to wear.
Lingerie can be an extension of who you are and your own personal essence. It can flatter and support and make you feel amazing.
That’s what we hope you feel, anyways! But we know the journey of embracing lingerie and your body isn’t an easy one. However, we think that a shift in perspective can help!
So if you don’t know how lingerie can help you rediscover your body, here are some things to consider.
Lingerie Has To Fit, So You Have To Get Fitted
Montelle Sweet Encounter Allure With Sling Underwire Lace Bra
Bras are always going to feel hard and uncomfortable until they fit, and you play with some styles to know what you really love. When you get measured, or measure yourself, you have the tools to narrow down what bras will work for you.
A good bra can help you feel a boost of confidence and glamour, and it feels pretty good too.
Underwear Has Come A Long Way
Magnifique The Sensuelle Panty by Body Hush
Thongs and granny panties aren’t the only option anymore (they are option we love too, though).
If you want your tummy to be structured and tucked in, you’ve got high waisted options. If you love your butt, or want to add some curve to your butt, a cheeky or brazilian will work wonders. If you want comfortable thighs that aren’t squished, you have seamless options.
Essentially, you can find comfortable underwear that flatters your shape and figure. A good pair of underwear that fits well, like a bra, can really transform your look, but also how you feel about your lower half.
We don’t mean the measurements of your bra and panty – you do want to know it.
What we mean is lingerie is changing; it’s not one size that can bask in the glory of some sexy and modern intimates. You are allowed to love yourself and embrace the body you have now in lingerie that appeals to you.
Explore different styles of lingerie outside of the necessities. You have chemises or bodysuits that you can style just for your own pleasure, or even for a fun, fashionable night. You also have new things, like bralettes and longline styles, that add some flair to what you wear every day.

The point is that lingerie is not meant to be a burden, or be something that only one body type can enjoy. You want to start thinking about yourself. What makes you feel good in the skin you’re in.
If you ever need fitting advice to help you really rediscover your body in lingerie, reach out to our Bra Doctor; she’d be happy to help!
You can also leave a comment and let us know if you’ve ever found a special piece that makes you feel marvelous.
The heat this summer is getting really strong, meaning we have to get creative in order to cool down and enjoy the summer.
Unfortunately, for a lot of us who are still on the body positive journey, a lot of things can get in the way of us truly enjoying our summer. Join us in trying to get rid of this “summer body” idea that has stopped so many of us having fun in the sun!
Parfait Soft Padded Knotted Front Molded Underwire Bikini Top
The days of bikinis just being for one type of body, or one pieces being for another type of body, are long gone. Maybe you don’t want tan lines, or you feel like you are forced to cover up – if you want to rock that bikini, do it!
We have this idea that people are going to be staring at us on the beach or commenting on our Instagram photos. But honestly, you typically have to look really close at someone to notice the things we are so hung up about – you know, the dimples, the stretch marks, and the little extra skin. But guess what? No one really notices, or cares!
Two Piece Swimsuit by Mapale
Swimsuits are being designed to flatter and support a more diverse range of bodies, which is so amazing. The high waisted swimsuit, anyone? It’s by far super sexy without having to go out of your comfort zone, but helps you rock a look inspired by the bikini you might love so much. Literally EVERYONE looks good in a high waisted bottom.
Women’s Fitness Quantum Splice Power Flex Eco by Speedo
Some of us also feel like we need to cover our bodies in the summer, even when it isn’t ideal. The thought of wearing shorts can be a nightmare for some. There are also cute dresses with little straps or cropped tops that are much more comfortable on warmer days. It’s so sad that we feel like we should sacrifice our personal comfort just to avoid the stares (that are never there) or the thought that a little bit of cellulite isn’t acceptable. We all have it, so why are we ashamed of it? Nobody has airbrushed skin in real life, so let’s stop pretending we do!
Two Piece Swimsuit by Mapale
We’re not saying wear a string bikini if you’re just not into it. We’re just saying the beach is so fun, the pool is relaxing, and pants just are not comfortable during a heat wave. We don’t want anyone (including us) to sit on the sidelines this summer and watch others have fun. We’re all worried we don’t look good in our short shorts or swimsuits, but we all do! And what’s more; no one is looking! And the ones that are can probably only see you having fun and rocking it!

In honor of you, and our mission to foster body positivity, we wanted to dig out these body positive blogs posts for you to read. Share this post with your friends who could use a confidence boost (and maybe some new lingerie)!
This blog post talks all about shapewear, which we think is a healthy accessory to make you feel confident when you need a little support. Because hey, why not have that brownie or skip that workout you’re too tired to go to once in a while?
Nothing too crazy is happening is lingerie right now, but that doesn’t mean trends aren’t cycling as always!
Check out what lingerie trends you’ll be seeing for a while, as we’ve witnessed in our lingerie rotation and on the lingerie radar.
Triumph Enchanted Blossom Ultra Light Longline Plunge Push Up
Cut outs seemed like they stopped for a moment, but are coming back in full force, especially in lingerie.
Lingerie gets so much sexier with a little pop of exposed skin, which can be styled for sexy nights indoors or out.
Montelle Silver Dreams Divine Lace Full Cup Underwire Bra
Sheer, all over lace, sometimes paired with mesh, is slowly becoming a classic.
It doesn’t go out of style, it’s beautiful, and can be created in so many different types of garments. You can even find touches of it in lingerie if you’re not about the allover look.
Lingerie Over Basics

Layer your bras or corsets over a simple tee, turtleneck, or t-shirt dress, and not only do you add some dimension and definition, you add some ultra trendy style.
Who doesn’t love something they can use more than one way too, right.
High Cut and/or Brazilian Panties
Deco Brazilian Thong by MOD By Parfait
A panty that showcases your curves is a panty you won’t be able to escape right now.
A high cut panty can show off your hips and supremely amp up your curves, while a brazilian panty puts your assets on display with tons of curve, even if you don’t have lots of junk in the trunk.
Companies That Care

Just like many things, consumers are caring more about where their stuff comes from, what the brand does, and how people are represented in media.
Brands like Aerie, Parfait, Playful Promises, and so so many more are celebrating diversity, body positivity, no airbrushing, and making lingerie more inclusive than it has been for a long time. If a lingerie company doesn’t get on board, they may not survive much longer.
What is one lingerie trend you hope never goes away?
We’re always up for a little bit of inspiration now and then; it could be for how we can dress, and how we can style lingerie.
Seeing women display lingerie in a confident way inspires us too, and that’s why we’ve loved some of these photos and want to celebrate these gorgeous celebrities!
Leyla Bloom Posing For Playful Promises

We know it’s been a long time coming for people of all walks of life, appearances, genders, and backgrounds or color to be represented in lingerie. That’s why we love this ad featuring women of color, and trailblazer Leyna Bloom, the first transgender woman of color featured in a Cannes movie as the star.
Rihanna For Savage x Fenty

We love what Rihanna is doing for visibility in lingerie, as well. She has some affordable, trendy, sexy pieces, and she looks like a bombshell showing them off.
Ashley Graham For Addition Elle
Such a trailblazer. | via Life And Style Mag
We feel like Ashley is so humble, she probably doesn’t realize how influential she’s been in the world of lingerie.
She looks radiant in this simple black and white photo showcasing her collection with Addition Elle. She’s just so naturally beautiful, don’t you think?
Heidi Klum Brushing Her Teeth

Of course Heidi Klum is one of the OG lingerie models and a household name, but she’s also adorable and funny.
We love her candid snap brushing her teeth, showing off some really cute underwear. It shows we should celebrate our bodies no matter what we’re doing!
Taylor Swift In New Music Video
Taylor just makes things iconic. | via Bustle
There’s something about Taylor Swift that’s so classically beautiful, so of course, she looks radiant in vintage-inspired lingerie.
We also love all the color featured in this look and it inspires us to mix things up!
Have you seen a lingerie look lately that you’ve loved?
We love using the “WomenSupportingWomen hashtag whenever we can. We just need more love between us ladies – or female identified – and hey, just everyone in general – especially when it comes to our bodies.
Our society always wants to tell us how our bodies should be, but we’re finally getting to the point that we just don’t care about unrealistic expectations! With this body positive movement comes a lot of comments and discussions that can be more uncomfortable or offensive than one may realize.
So if you’re trying to work towards a more body positive future, try some of these little language suggestions so you don’t end up hurting someone’s feelings or make someone feel bad about who they are.
It may seem harmless, but isn’t always. | via Giphy
DON’T SAY: “You look like you’ve lost weight!”
SAY THIS: “You look great/you’re glowing/you look happy – what are you doing differently?”
Saying something about someone’s physical change helps acknowledge what may be someone’s hard work to get healthy on their terms. But you may not want to say “you’ve lost weight” in case someone didn’t lose weight on purpose. There could be underlying issues that could bring up bad feelings.
Don’t focus on the weight. You can make someone feel good without focusing on the weight, while also getting a tip or two from them if that’s what you want.
We look like US and that’s enough. | via Gfycat
DON’T SAY: “You look like [insert famous person]”
SAY THIS: “You look great!”
This may sound a little bit oversensitive, but hear us out.
We have to STOP comparing ourselves to other people. Sure, this is meant to be a compliment. But when we stop the comparisons of other people, we erase that thought process of comparing ourselves too.
Say it girl! | via Giphy
DON’T SAY: “I look fat/ugly/too skinny/don’t have big or small enough this or that etc … but it looks great on you!”
SAY: “I’m just learning to love this about myself.”
We’re all insecure about different things. So just because you may be insecure about the size of your boobs, another person may wish they had them. And when you say you hate something about your body that someone else has, it can make them feel bad too.
For example, you may call yourself fat even when you’re smaller than your best friend, and so that makes her feel attacked even when you were just talking about yourself.
On that note, even though it’s hard, learn to take compliments! We are just way too good at making excuses for why we shouldn’t accept a compliment. That’s so much more damaging than you may realize. Get in the habit of saying a simple thank you every time someone gives you a compliment, and leave it at that. Soon enough you’ll start internalizing them!
Preach! | via Giphy
Have you ever experienced something that happens all the time, but actually makes you feel bad about yourself? How do you handle situations where people make unwanted comments or comparisons about your body?
The last thing you want in the summer heat is anything that sticks to your body or makes it heat up even more.
You could go sans much lingerie some days in the summer, but it may not be the best for your health or comfort. So why not try one of these pieces of lingerie that’s comfortable in the summer heat? You can soak up the sun while staying supported and at ease that there will be no infections or rashes or worse.
A wireless bra in a light color is great for days where you really can’t say no to the support and coverage. You don’t deal with that metal digging in and attracting heat, but you still get that nice lift.
Play It Cool Warner’s Wire-Free Cooling Racerback Bra
If you haven’t tried Chill FX tech yet, you may want to. This bra helps you feel cool and dry which you can almost never get during the summer.
The material can also wick away sweat and moisture, and doesn’t have any wires that will dig in.
A couple of things to keep in mind: avoid thongs and stringy underwear, and avoid lacy fabrics. These can rub around everywhere and cause rubbing, friction, heat – nothing good.
Do you have any tips to stay cool and comfortable in the summer?
