Meredith and I always joke about the fact that the Cosabella Never Say Never Sweetie bra sells out before we can even try it on. I know the bra is pretty, but it wasn’t until I special ordered one for myself that I truly understood the allure. I decided to try it out last Saturday. It was my day off and I knew I’d be bombing around my apartment cleaning, doing laundry, etc. etc.
If we’re judging on comfort and low impact support, I’m happy to report that the Sweetie passed the test with flying colors. It felt great and didn’t stretch throughout the day as some wireless bras tend to do. Daytime success!
But the real clinchercame that evening. My husband’s former classmates were throwing a bash, a lower key affair that didn’t require anything fancier than jeans and sweater. Now typically I would avoid wearing a lace, wireless bralet underneath a top that leaves little to the imagination, but I was feeling lazy so I put on a (tight) sweater and left the house.
Admittedly it could of have gone wrong. I could have realized halfway through the party that my bra wasn’t making Forty Winks proud…but when I tell you that the Sweetie gave my 32D bust all the shape and lift it needed, I mean it. It did it without wires, without molding, without anything but stretchy lace to give me a really great, round shape. Party-time success!
Now the wireless look isn’t for everyone, but if you’re curious about this type of bra, the Sweetie is a good place to start. Now available at Forty Winks in wintery Wineberry.

Every summer I get all crazy for Watermelon. It’s the quintessential summertime fruit and I want to relish every little bit of these fleeting months by eating my weight in the stuff.
And I don’t stop at plain old slices…
I’m good at stalking foodgawker.com for new recipes and while my favorite will always be watermelon slices topped with bacon, goat cheese, and balsamic (OMG), I’ve found a new favorite to bring to the watermelon party.
All I do is food process the heck out of the stuff and pour it into popsicle molds. After a couple of hours of freezer time, I’m reaching for my watermelon fix sans all that sticky juice.
All this talk of watermelon reminds me…
The Cosabella Never Say Never Prettie bra comes in a shade that almost exactly matches the a fore mentioned popsicles.
Looks like now I can have my watermelon year round.
