If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know two things:
- I like to be comfortable
- I hate traditional bras with underwire
I never really loved the fit and style of bras with Victoria Secret when they were all the rage and the go-to spot. And I honestly couldn’t relate to the brand with the types of models and imagery they had. Every time I walked into the store, I felt self conscious. So when I came across the brand Lively, I immediately new I’d be a forever fan.
I’ve actually been watching the Lively brand evolve for years now and have admired not only their product, but also their voice. They aren’t just a company selling bras, they are a lifestyle. A startup founded by a kick ass boss babe. The thing I love most about the brand is that they make styles for women of all sizes and moms with their maternity line. The perfect brand to write about for International Women’s Day!
I’ve been lucky enough to become an official ambassador for the brand (even though I was already!) and got to try some of their styles out. I’m totally a bralette girl, so I love their colorblock mesh style. It’s not going to give you a ton of support, and is a bit see through. But it’s made of super soft material and is perfect to peek through a blouse on date night. The nursing bra was one of my favorites when breastfeeding. It made me feel sexy and sophisticated when things were a bit messy as a new mom. Just keep in mind, you will need to use nursing pads to prevent leakage. And lastly, I really love their wireless strapless bra. I seriously HATE wearing strapless bras, so I’m a tough critic. But this one passed the test and I will definitely be wearing all summer long.
If you need a little more support when it comes to a bra, check out their traditional bra styles! They also have undies, bodysuits, swimwear, and loungewear. I’m eyeing this beautiful lace bralette in white for my next purchase!
