Y’all, it’s been an interesting couple of weeks. Willow and I both had what I thought were colds but we each progressed pretty swiftly into full-blown bronchitis/walking pneumonia territory. Being pregnant and spiking a scary temperature plus taking care of a sick two-year-old was a lot. I’m just grateful for mommy instincts and modern medicine that got us through these past two weeks and pleased to say everyone is feeling better! (But Daddy has the Man-Flu now, so of course that’s been a challenge for everyone).
Anyway, I’ve been dying to share that adorable bra and shorties set that we did a fun “Unboxing” video of on Facebook a couple Friday’s back, and I was finally feeling up to pictures this week so thought I would give you the lowdown on these.
First of all, if you’re not familiar with You! Lingerie, definitely check them out. Just like the name suggests, they are a brand of underwear geared toward making you look and feel your best at every size. Pregnancy can be challenging in so many ways, not least of all on your body image. Having underwear that grows with you can be a real saving grace at a time when nothing seems to fit quite right and many of us are uncomfortable in our own skin.
My favorite thing about the bra I got from Y!L is that it has wide size range on the back plus an included extender. Fitting tight? No bigs, just adjust or add some inches. Easy-peasy. I can’t tell you how many bras I’ve ripped off this spring and summer, tears streaming down because I just cannot get into them and it feels like a slap in the face. This one is amazing for that reason alone.
It also doubles as a nursing bra, and if you’ve ever breastfed a baby you know that cute ones are hard to come by. The bra has great support without pinching or underwire, and it holds the girls up beautifully with an easy-down clip for breastfeeding on the go. Ta-da!
As for the shorties, I’m truly obsessed. A stretchy, comfy, breathable cotton is so key as we head into summer months. These are adorable for lounging around the house and also work great under my favorite maternity dresses and leggings with no bunching or discomfort.
Check out You! Lingerie today and I have a feeling you are going to be just as obsessed as I am. Make sure to sign up for their newsletter, too, so you never miss a sale. Happy shopping, moms and moms-to-be!
