Meet Harper Wilde
Before I introduce you to my new favorite bra(s), let me start by saying that the female body is strong, beautiful, and powerful. It’s quite incredible what our bodies are capable of. Since welcoming McLean, I have an entirely new-found respect for the female body. In fact I wish I could go back in time and reclaim my body. I would take back all of the years that I hated my body, shamed my own body, and wished for a different body. I’d apologize to myself for the anguish and the anxiety I caused. I’d take back all of the dressing room melt downs, the fights with my Mom, and the tears I shed over bathing suit season. It’s flat out ridiculous how I used to view my body, and how I let it control so many aspects of life.
All of that being said, clearly you know body image has been a pain point in my life. I’m sure the majority of you can relate. While I recognize my body image has evolved and improved over time, that’s not to say it isn’t a struggle. It’s 100 percent a struggle to accept the changes a female body goes through in life. For instance, having a baby completely altars your body. It’s truly insane that we carry and grow a precious life for 9 months in our very own bodies. Of course your body is going to grow, stretch, curve and scar. You sacrifice your body for another life, and you do it effortlessly. So effortlessly, you begin to not even think about your post-baby bod. For a minute.
I’ll be the first to admit, my post-baby bod ain’t the same y’all. I’ve got about 10 pounds I can’t seem to shake, and I’m carrying my weight differently. My bra size is full, and my hips are totally different. My chest is larger, hangs lower, etc. I’ve got side boob, back boob, lots of extra boob… At the end of the day I’m okay with all of it, because it means something now. It’s bigger than just me, I’ve brought a beautiful life into the world.
That beautiful life was born 7 months ago, and it’s still hard to believe. Brace yourselves, this is where the story gets a little scary. I’m going to admit something here. I’ve been wearing my trusty ol’ nursing bras up until I met Harper Wilde (last week). Yes I realize that’s bad, and not flattering at all. Those things have zero support, and look like potato sacks for your girls. Needless to say, Harper Wilde changed my life. I’m feeling more confident than ever in the bra department, because I’ve finally met my match. And I’m not just saying that to plug the brand. I’m saying that because it’s true.
Harper Wilde is brand that EVERY SINGLE WOMAN should know about. They create every day bras, for us every day gals. Their designs are thoughtful, their prices are fair, they have an empowering brand message, and they recycle. My favorite bra so far, THE BASE, is a lightly lined, full coverage, comfortable underwire bra. It’s the perfect all-day style. The fabric of all 3 of my Harper Wilde bras is divine: The Base, The Flex and The Bliss are all pretty incredible.
The point of this message is not only to support a brand that is LITERALLY supporting me and my girls, but to share a message that IT’S OK to look different then you did 5 years ago. A lot of life and beauty have happened to your bodies in that time. Even if my bra size is bigger than ever, at least I can confidently say I feel good, and I’m proud of the body I see. This body deserves to be adored, by me. Spread love to your own bodies, and embrace what your momma gave ya! Girl you deserve it.
