AdoreMe Review


Finding bras that fit correctly has always been an issue for me. Recently, I went on the hunt for the 15th billion time in my life and found nothing. I decided to get remeasured, and was informed at two separate stores that what I needed wasn't readily available for me. My band vs. cup measurement didn't exist on their size chart. I tried on the best they had to offer, and it didn't fit. Finding a band that fit was no issue, but finding a cup that I didn't spill out of was seemingly impossible.

A lovely sales rep at a plus-size store recommended I try out a specialty bra store, so I did. Bras there were upwards of $130. I left feeling extremely discouraged, so I went home and scoured the internet for options.

I had seen commercials for Adore Me on TV, but never assumed that they had much of a size range. When I stumbled across the website, I was surprised to see that Adore Me carries sizes 30A-46G, offers flat rate shipping and returns, and even has a VIP program for discounts.

I took a shot and ordered. I picked a style, measured myself, and decided to order a size up just in case. About a week later, the package arrived. It turns out I had ordered a size up for nothing, it was slightly too big. I followed the return process and had the correct size within a week.

Here's what I thought about the process and product:







What I Liked: First of all, the selection of bras is amazing (unlined vs. padded, balconette vs. full coverage, etc.). They even carry swimwear, sleepwear, and lingerie. Second, the items are true to size. The measurement guide online turned out to be perfectly accurate (rare when purchasing things online!). Third, the quality is outstanding. The bras are made better than most I've seen in stores, especially for plus size girls. The straps are thick, the band is sturdy, and the fabrics are beautiful.

Beyond the actual bras, the service is beyond what I imagined. I got a deal on my first set, and returning was so easy. Adore Me provided a shipping label and even let me order a replacement before they received the return.

What I Didn't Like: If there's anything I don't love about Adore Me, it's the price and currency. Although $49/$59 for a set isn't outrageous compared to local stores, those are USD prices. I really, really wish the website displayed in Canadian currency for us Canadian shoppers.

Final Thoughts: This service really surprised me. I haven't signed up for the VIP program, but I am strongly considering it. I highly recommend this website to anyone who has trouble shopping for bras, and even those who don't!

Spring To Do List



This Spring's to-do list is small, but doable. I'm trying to improve our front yard before it gets too hot, so most of my goals revolve around that. What do you have planned for Spring?


1. Find a swimsuit

2. Have our eavestrough replaced

3. Create a new front walkway

4. Replace the back door on our house

5. Reduce my sugar intake

6. Grow a plant, any plant

Amazon Find: Glitter Iphone Case


I found this glitter iphone case on Amazon.ca and needed to have it. The photo online made it look so pink and sparkly, and for such a great price I couldn't resist.

What I Liked: First, this phone case is only $8 CAD and shipping is free. The case is "jelly", so it's soft and bendable, not hard. Beyond that, it's extremely pink and glittery, just like the photo. This case also comes in 6 colours (blue, green, purple, pink, gold, and silver)! A great deal all around.

What I Didn't Like: If there is one thing I don't like about this case, it's that essentially the case is a pink jelly cover with a silver glitter cardboard underlay. You can remove the glitter layer at any time, so I can see it getting ruined in certain situations.

Final Thoughts: I've received more compliments on this phone case than you could imagine. The glitter looks incredible in person, and it's definitely worth the $8. I'm already considering purchasing the case in another colour!
