Puddle Jumping Our Way Through Safe Water Play

Puddle Jumping Our Way Through Safe Water Play

Summer is still in full swing where I live. North Carolina doesn’t usually start to cool down until the end of September which is both a blessing and a curse. Safe water play in these warmer months is extremely important. One huge benefit in our favor though would be our puddle jumpers. Whether its a day at the lake, the community pool, or even our inflatable pool in the back yard – I have peace of my mind that my children are safe in their puddle jumpers.

Shapewear: Our Little Secret

Shapewear Our Little Secret

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Let me tell you about shapewear our little secret. Growing up I was never skinny but I was always short, so that makes me look even heavier. I was always made fun of for being overweight and especially in middle school and freshman year of high school. At my heaviest, I was in size 18 clothing and hit about 205lbs being only 4’10 you can imagine how it looked. I battled weight up and down and until the summer of Junior year when my battle with depression came to a head did I lose any significant weight. In the span of 6 months I lost down to 135 lbs and honestly, I looked sick. I finally got healthy and usually stay between 145-155 lbs now.

With that being said I’ve never been “flat chested” either so finding bras that fit is always a chore. It’s either too tight or the cups don’t fit right. I for one detest underwire and can’t stand to have it in a bra, it is like slow torture wearing one all day. Not to mention when the wire snaps and tries to impale you slowly.

Shapewear our little secret

 

So I started looking for a brand that would fit all my needs and that’s when I found Sonsee. Sonsee is for plus size ladies and caters to all their needs. They have sizing experts ready and willing to help you find the perfect fit every time so you don’t have any guesswork.

High Back Bra

Here are my thoughts on the products that I received. First I got the High Back Bra. This bra is a game changer because I’m having no more back pain. It gives support in all the right places and there is NO underwire *happy dance here*. It comes in nude and black and is so soft on your skin. A big win in my opinion.

Shapewear Shorts

The next thing I received was the  Shapewear Shorts. To be honest when I first got them I was like, I’m going to look like an old lady. But then I put it on, and I’m in love! After four kids lets get real there are muscles that are not in the correct spot and are stretched out. The support I felt instantly made me feel so much better. It also helps hide those little problem areas, don’t get me wrong I’m all about self-love but I could use some toning up and the shapewear provides that coverage. The fabric is breathable and great for year round use. The waistband is designed for tummy control and made to not roll down.
