Casual Outfit and Bra Talk with Kohls

TJ Maxx Striped Tunic
Rue 21 DIY Shorts

When it comes to everyday style I’m all about comfort and wearing clothes that aren't too constricting since I spend a majority of my day chasing Zaden around. A cute tunic, shorts, comfortable shoes, and a fun statement necklace is an easy go-to outfit for just about any event.

However, no look is complete without a comfortable bra. Did you know that 80% of women wear the wrong bra size? I thought that I was one of the 20% that had it right but boy was I wrong.

Luckily Kohl's helped me figure out my correct size with their online bra fitting guide.

Over the past several months, I could tell my boobs had changed after losing weight. However they drastically changed once Zaden stopped nursing at the beginning of this summer.

Kohl's recently contacted me to help spread the news about their new online bra fitting guide. I thought this would be a great opportunity to find out my new bra size since the last time I was properly fitted was right before purchasing my nursing bras.

When I found out that I could do everything in the convenience of my own home I was sold. All I needed was a tape measure and my measurements.  After entering my measurements into Kohl's fitting guide, I found out that my most recent bra purchases were too big in the band and too small in the cup. 

Kohl's generously sent me a bra care package with six solution based bras. Once I found out my correct bra size, I went on a little shopping spree to Kohl's for some new bras. I didn't want to bombard you guys with all of my bras so I’m going to share my top 3 favorites from the care package and 3 favorites from my shopping spree.

Below I've shared 1-2 sentences about each bra and what I like about them. I highly encourage any women out there reading this to measure yourself, especially if you have lost or gained weight since your last fitting! 
This is without a question my favorite bra from the care package. It’s so versatile and offers the perfect amount of coverage for just about any top.

This minimizer bra is so comfortable and is easily my second favorite bra. I love that there’s no padding and has a very natural feel to it.
This tshirt bra offers an extra bit of lift which is perfect for v or scooped neck shirts. I was also in need of a new black bra since my nursing bra is now way too big for me.

Maidenform Ultimate Comfort Devotion Tailored Push-Up Bra:
I haven't owned a bright colored bra in quite some time and wanted to get something fun. This push up bra is surprisingly comfortable. I love the bright red color and little jewel accent.

Maiden Form Lace Bandeau:
I absolutely love this bandeau it offers the perfect amount of lift and coverage. I love the pretty intricate lace design and that it actually stays up and doesn't fall down. It’s wire free and has optional straps which is nice if I ever feel like I need a bit of an extra lift.

Barely There CustomFlex Fit 2-pk. Foam-Cup Bandini:
This is the perfect bra for lounging around the house. After having Zaden I realize the importance of almost always wearing a bra and supporting my boobs. I've been wearing these bras around the house and on days when I just don’t feel like wearing a bra. I've even gone to bed wearing this bra without realizing it’s still on, it’s that comfortable.
