{CLOSED Giveaway} Barely There® $250 Bra & Panty Wardrobe

Congratulations to Brianna N., 
thank you to all that entered! 


As a busy mom of two wild boys, I cannot tell you the last time I took the time to really focus 100% on myself and purchase a bra! I would love to tell you that I have a boudoir filled with lacy things, and I feel so beautiful while wearing them. Lets get real, I have two bras and I cannot tell you when or where they were purchased! (One is black and the other is nude, neither is lacy or frilly.)  I would also love to tell you, that I know these questionable bras fit perfectly. I can recall being measured and fitted before I had children, and the "knowledgeable" woman suggested a bra that would solve all of my concerns. Having a large bust line; I know all about popping out, bulging, rubbing, underwire battles, and constantly fiddling with my straps. Once again, I thought because I had spent a large amount way back when, that I was wearing a bra that fit properly.

In November I had the joy of attending the Social Media Mom Mixer, held in Philadelphia and learned about Barely There® intimates. I saw a group of ladies at a booth, and I wondered what the excitement was all about. I soon found out that they were giving away bras and panties, and offering measurements. I was honestly leery, as I have NEVER had a proper fitting under garment. I greeted the ladies of Barely There® and expected to be handed a sample, and sent on my way. I was in complete awe, as I was personally measured and fitted. I was given several quick lessons about why my current bra, did not fit...meaning I was bulging out of my cup size, and my breasts were unsupported near the underwire line. (What? Are you kidding?!!) I was shocked to learn that I was in the wrong cup size, and wearing a bust line sized bra that was two sizes too big! The ladies of Barely There® answered all of my questions, wrote down my measurements, and suggested where I could purchase them.

 The ladies of Barely There® shared a few tips with me, let me share with you what I learned:
  1. Just because it is expensive, doesn't mean a bra fits.
  2. Not all bras are the same, meaning you MUST try them on!
  3. Trying to decide if your bra fits? Lift your hands above your head, and do a little dance. (You should not have a ton of movement if you have the correct cup and bust line size.)
  4. Your cup size can change, especially after breast feeding or having children.
  5. You should NOT be uncomfortable, your bra should be almost unnoticeable.

This is where I tell you how I fell in love with the CustomFlex Fit® Reversible Pullover bra! Underwire free, comfortable, soft, and a perfect fit; it is the bra I have always dreamed of. Once I had dressed and took a look in the mirror, I didn't see any spilling or popping out! For this Mom, that is a huge deal! 


Barely There® has some amazing shapewear, that will reduce and minimize the areas you are seeking to slim down. For me, it doesn't matter what type of shirt, blouse, or top I am wearing I have the "Momma Belly," it is the one area that I am most self conscious about! I tried on the Second Skinnies™ Smoothers Waist Whittling Hi-Waist Boxer, and I was beyond pleased that the jeans I have been trying to wear fit perfectly! I was missing the pooch, and I looked smooth and slim! Very exciting, and I could not wait to wear them out.
Underwear has always been an issue for me. I am not a fan of granny panties, and cannot deal with under garments that creep and crawl. I now have a collection of panties that are seamless, tagless, and do not show a panty line through my jeans! Each of the panties I tried were flawless and so comfortable, everything I was looking for in a panty from Barely There®
