Look Better DRESSED with @BarelyThr

I have a confession.
I am a little envious of women who can get by without wearing a bra. I don’t hate wearing a bra but I hate that I always feel like I need support. When I am hitting the gym the last thing I want to do is head home and after I shower put on another piece of clothing that feels like it’s restricting me.


Last month as a part of my kit from the folks at Barely There, I was sent the Custom Flex Reversible Pullover. Shown below, this bra allows me some support with lots of comfort.

With this pullover I felt like I had options for how to I would wear it. If I needed, I would be able to run errands without fear of, ahem, flopping about. I could easily sleep in this and not wake up feeling like something was squeezing the life out of me and one day I even wore it during the day, never feeling like I lost shape to my bust. 

As for panties…I am leery of anything claiming to be bikini. When I picture bikini I picture something riding up, not covering me and just being all around uncomfortable. With the Custom Flex Fit bikini I felt like there was no riding up or down and was very comfortable wearing this underwear.

The flex bikini is available $10 a pair of 3 for $26. Initially I balked about the price, having spent a life buying and wearing underwear that comes multiples to a pack. This is so worth it! The underwear fits perfectly, softly curving my curves and shaping my assets. They maintained their shape, color and feel through a few wash cycles and are my new favorites.

But, you don’t have to take my word for it. Check out these products for yourself!
Theses items are sold at Kohl’s and other fine retailers or you can order online from the Barely There website.

Thanks for following my quest for new foundation wear!

    Last summer I discovered the Barely there collection at Kohls. I use the shapers. The brand I was wearing before I dreaded getting into. Once I broke my nail getting them on in the bathroom. I BROKE A NAIL GETTING THEM ON! Needless to say I was ready to try something new. I love the Barely There shapers, they are not torturous to put on and I feel like I’m not wearing anything extra. BONUS I haven’t broken a nail! I haven’t tried out their underwear though.
