Lingerie for Curvy Bodies & Every Body

Ah, February…

It’s officially the month of LOVE & I LOVE IT!

And I know, that has the potential to be unpopular opinion. But WHY?

My theory is that, GIRL whether we like it or not, we allow the month of love (and heck, every other month of the year) to revolve around someone else and the validation we get from someone else choosing us.

But what about US? What about YOU?

What if you loved you & chose you regardless of celebrating the month of love solo or with a partner? What if you loved you and chose you EVERYDAY? After all, isn’t that what love is all about anyway?

Here at Ditch the Clique, we believe we can’t be good for ANYONE if we’re not good for ourselves first. And GIRL we want that same love for you too! So to inspire you to love you more this Valentine’s Day season and B E Y O N D, we’re sharing a few of our favorite confidence boosting brands who empower us to love the skin we’re in E V E R Y D A Y!

ADORE ME

If you’ve attended a Ditch the Clique event or follow along with me on Instagram (shameless plug HEHE) you’re likely familiar with my Adore Me obsession. With the tagline “do whatever you want in our lingerie” and housing colorfully creative underwear and sleep styles from xs to plus size, there truly is something for E V E R Y B O D Y!

BRAVISSIMO

Bravissimo is fuller bust brand & newer friend of Ditch the Clique, and we already can’t get enough of their curve loving styles. Designed for boobs size D – L, they house over 94 sizes and 25 brands for the “1 unique YOU!” My current favs include the Penelope and Enya styles ideal for vday and BEYOND!

Oh & NYC friends – stay tuned for the reopening of the SoHo Bravissimo shop coming soon!

CURVY KATE

Also designed with a fuller breast in mind (hello cup sizes D-K) Curvy Kate is ALL about empowering you with the knowledge to select the best shape and most comfortable fit to be BeYOUtiful! Sharing daily fit tips & the latest boob news, Curvy Kate is more than bras and swimwear but THE Instagram follow of 2022!

If You’re Grinchy Like Me…

If I’m REALLY honest, December is a tough one for me…

As always, I’ll be real with you and admit that apart from my birthday (bless Sagittarius season), I practically dread December. I know that sounds SO Grinchy (I love the Grinch, so I’m really okay if you call me that), but I simply do not resonate with the holiday hype. For years I’ve attributed this to the past circumstances of my life; whether it be family stresses, living situations, working long retail hours, finances…the list goes on. And with this Grinchy perspective it’s clear I take even greater notice to the societal obsession of unrealistic expectations that truly have nothing to do with Christmas at all.

Oh and for the record, I know my perspective on the holiday’s is not for everyone, but I also know it is for someone.

And if that is you, I’m really excited you’re here…

& Just Like That…I’m Old(er)

& just like that…I’m another year older! (Fellow Sex & the City fans, PLEASE tell me you read that in Carrie’s voice!)

In true Sagittarian form, I LOVE my birthday and the celebrations that ensue! But funny enough, I once *DREADED* getting older and the aging that inevitably comes with it (regardless of how strict my skincare routine may be.) And much like you, I used to believe the lie that very specific boxes needed to be checked by a certain age in order for me to *really* be happy.

But GIRL that’s what’s so funny about growing up…
