Breastimony

Breastimony™ w/ Danielle Rushton

I remember finally stopping to ask myself, and the universe, and God, who is this even being made for? Size standards in fashion aren’t a secret — as size goes up, style goes down. But this was a bathing suit style that would have been fine if they would have used an appropriate amount of fabric for the size they labeled it to be. From that moment, I decided to make my own clothes that would fit me as I am, and stop letting these companies that couldn't care less about what feels best to me force me into standard sizes that were never made to fit my individual, unique and personal size. So, I did what any fed-up-with-the-industry-millennial would do; I fired up YouTube, bought myself a sewing machine, and began teaching myself how to sew.

Meet Our Model: Ali

"I honestly started sharing my wellness journey for somewhat selfish reasons. I posted this very raw photo of myself almost 200 pounds, postpartum, and kind of just put it out there in the world saying that I was going to start working to better myself. There wasn’t any "after" photo to go with that first initial “before” photo. I thought if I put it all out there then it would keep me accountable to follow through with my goals."

Meet Our Model: Malaika

"I think I felt comfortable in my own skin at a young age. In my teens I felt content in my body and missed those common teen years of struggling for reasons I’m still not sure. For me as I got to college that’s when I became less comfortable. Now I have to say I’m still working on it, but most days I feel pretty good just the way I am."

Meet Our Model: Ciera

"I decided to start modeling because I wanted to see more women like myself represented in the modeling/fashion world. Honestly, being a bi-racial woman, I have found some difficulty in my life to always feel comfortable being 100% myself—even with a family that constantly reassured me. It wasn’t until later in high school that I let go of “trying to fit in”, and started to step into what made me different and loving those differences."

Meet Our Model: Gabi

I’ve definitely found a newfound confidence in my 30s that I didn’t have in my 20s. I sort of just realized that I’ve already lived so much life, and sadly a lot of it was plagued in insecurity. When I hit 30 I was like, 'I literally don’t have time to doubt myself anymore. This is what I am, and this is more than enough.'."

Breastimony™ w/ Ellery Linder

Let’s play a round of everyone’s favorite dinner party game, “Never Have I Ever”. Never have I ever been to India, though I would like to someday. Never have I ever been scuba diving (this makes me feel very non-Floridian). Never have I ever driven a motorcycle… no immediate plans for this! Here’s a good one: Never have I ever felt comfortable in a bra. As someone who’s worn a bra almost every single day for the past twenty years, this still takes me by surprise. And it’s not just that I’ve never felt comfortable in a bra—I’ve never even liked how I...
