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!

How we celebrate Galentine’s Day….

It’s February! And let’s be real…you likely either love or hate the “month of love”.

To be honest with you, over the years I’ve spent a lot of time digging deep into this one. Because as someone who struggles around the Christmas holiday season, I find it important to empathize with and support those who see holiday months as a challenge rather than a celebration. And through my “research” I’ve found one MAJOR commonality which leads me to ask…


Do those who dislike the month of love struggle to like themselves?

OKAY I know that sounds harsh, but before you stop reading PLEASE hear me out!

Think about it…a lot of people who dislike February struggle because of feeling incomplete or less than on Valentine’s Day. They battle feelings of loneliness and begin to believe the lie that they don’t measure up and are unworthy of love. And in return of feeling unloved, they fall of out love with themselves. And where love doesn’t live…hate does. But GIRL whether you love or hate February (and for whatever reason you love or hate it), I’m here to remind you:

YOU ARE COMPLETE.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
YOU DO MEASURE UP.
YOU ARE WORTHY.

YOU. ARE. LOVED.

And GIRL, YOU deserve to love YOU!

To give you the resources YOU need to celebrate YOU, Ditch the Clique is hosting a FREE virtual Galentine’s Day event in partnership with Figleaves this Saturday February 13th at 11am EST! And to give you a glimpse into the body positive, connective conversation we’ll be having at Saturday’s event, we teamed up with Figleaves to create a photo shoot overflowing with selflove and REAL bodies!

GIRL if YOU are ready to celebrate YOU and YOUR body with a community of inspiring and empowering women this Galetine’s Day, RSVP to our FREE virtual event HERE! You’ll leave with resources empowering you to love the skin you’re in AND with an exclusive Galentine Goodie Bag too! I promise, you will never regret celebrating YOU!

OH & sending a special thank you to our friends at Figleaves for sponsoring this event and photoshoot! I and ALL the ladies at Ditch the Clique always feel our most confident in our favorite Figleaves items! There’s just something about wearing a bra that’s for EVERYBODY!

And GIRL, if you want MORE of THIS (this being a community of women inspiring and empowering you RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE while you go after your DREAM life), join Ditch the Clique COMMUNITY today!

A Bra & Panty for EVERY BODY

Oh, Valentines Day.

Is it just me, or is it one of those holidays you either love or hate? And more often than not, your opinion of the day revolves around your relationship status, right?

(Now I’m not sure if as a married woman it’s “appropriate” to ask this but…) Why is it that we allow our relationship(s) with other people to impact the the way we love ourselves? What about YOU? What about the love you have for YOU? That MUST stand for something, right?
