#LMMSELFLOVE: Finding your Unicorn Bra

  Can I tell you something? Can you believe I’ve never owned a properly fitted bra? For the past…. Hmmmm for number sake let’s say 20 years, I’ve gone about life, wearing a bra I assumed was my size, and just like the rest of you, upon calling it a day it was the first thing I flung off; because OH GAWD was it uncomfortable.  Over the last few months I’ve been tackling a PRETTY SENSITIVE but rather important subject; self love.

And of all people, why did Oprah let this happen in the pages of her magazine? Q: Can I pull of a crop top? A: […]

The perfect fitting bra, sometimes comes at a cost, and I don’t mean a hefty price tag; in most cases the beauty of the bra lacks greatness when fit is more important.
