Review: @BarelyThr

Review it Rah-shay By Feb 02, 2013 1 Comment

As a blogger for Barely There I have been given a lift. Not just in my foundation wear but in everything! I feel confident and secure knowing that as I move throughout the day I am well supported and looking good. I was sent a variety of products to sample and try. There were five items that I tried and here are my thoughts about them

Barely There uses a unique to system called the Solution Finder to assist with sizing. Instead of the cup sizes that have been my norm, Barely There has sizes that range from extra small to extra large.

The Reviews

Second Skinnies™ SlimmersTush n’ Tummy Toning Torset Romper.

In the past the body shapers I have worn were more like torture devices, constricting my movements, leaving me breathless and irritable. I would struggle to get the product on and while I appeared to be smaller, I would feel as if I were being physically handled and squeezed all day long. With the Romper I was able to wear it all day and actually forgot that I had it on until it was time to use the facilities. The material gently smooths my midsection and back leaving me feeling confident and comfortable.

Very comfortable
Easy to get on.
Other shapers that I have worn would require assistance or more flexibility than I now possess. With the romper I sliped it on in minutes and didn’t have to adjust it at all
It really smoothes!
The romper helped

The clasps are very delicate and easily ripped. When I was attempting to unhook the seat, I ripped the clasps. The romper still does it’s job however it’s sporting a small hole

Invisible Look Underwire 4104

I am really digging Barely There brassieres. When wearing them I feel as if I am supported, lifted and

No uncomfortable shoulders or pressure
Washes well

None. So far I have been able to comfortably wear this bra all day without the desire to rip it off as soon as I am home for the day.

The CustomFlex Fit Hipster
Hipsters are my normal garments however my normal garments are a bit tired. I had been wearing the incorrect size underwear for a while and was quite uncomfortable! These hipsters stayed put throughout my day as I chased little ones and were invisible under my clothes.

No riding or “wedgies”
This product washes well. There has been no fading and they have kept their shape.

None so far.

Invisible Look Bikini
Bikini Underwear is an item I often bypass. Since I have gained weight I felt that bikini underwear would be uncomfortable and unattractive on me. The Invisible Look feels comfy and didn’t ride up during the day.

Soft and supple
Washes really well

None so far.

CustomFlex Fit® Comfort Everyday Comfort Push-Up (4588)

Push-Up bras were something I have often ignored as I thought this style of bra would draw too much attention to m. The CustomFlex Fit did not really draw more attention to me and I felt confident wearing a new type of bra. However, getting the bra on was difficult; the bra is worn like a bandeau and put on like a shirt. 

Pros: An extra lift

Cons: The bra was difficult for me to get on. Quite frankly I struggled and it took longer than usual to get dressed the day I wore it.

I feel as if I am gushing about the products but they are so worth it!
