Happy New Year TBB Family! May 2020 bring you all that you deserve, work hard for, and put out into the universe.
Remember though, ‘NO’ is a full sentence in 2020, make self-care central to your being and all that means to you.
Now back to business.
Honest post alert:
We’ve been bad bloggers. Sometimes life, love (heartbreak), full-time work and everything in-between gets in the way of what we love, and what we do best. But you know what - we always come back….
The Bra Bible has been on annual leave, for an annum. But we’re here, ready to rock, and it won’t happen again.
A little while ago the amazing Lara at Lusomé sent us a very special gift. Within this gorgeous parcel lay THE. MOST. COMFORTABLE. JAMMIES. EVER.
This is not an #ad. I repeat - not an #ad.
So let’s start from the top:
First - the weight of this gorgeous set. It feels heavy. Not in a 'weigh you down' kind of way, so you feel like you’re suffocating in bed or have that weird sleep paralysis thing people get. But in the sense that you know it’s made well, with care, and will last you a bloody lifetime.
Second - I’m 30-something (let’s not get lost in the detail) and I run hot. Always. Sure, I’m not menopausal, but I’m like a duvet-cloaked oven most of the time. And here’s a PSA for y’all: this set of PJs is G E N I U S. Wicks your sweat away during summer, keeps you cosy in winter, wild I know.
Third - these were sent to us / me in 2017…. As a regular jimjam wearer (I'm not bold enough to sleep nude in case an axe murderer breaks in during the night and I have to defend myself, titties swinging...) - approximately how many times do you think I’ve machine-washed them since then? I’d say an average of two / three times a month… My best maths makes that 72 washes. Do you know what state they are in now? Perfection. As parcel-fresh and comfortable as the day they arrived, and just as beautiful to look at.
Fourth - Appropriate times to wear these Pyjamas:
When a Gentleman guest (or Female Guest - we don’t discriminate) is staying the night, and they all comment on just how sexy they are. True story.
Being back at your Folks’ over Christmas
Going to the shop for ciggies / Pinot
Or nesting fabulously through January when it feels like the month has 98 days...
These babies do the job. They are elegant, in an ‘I’m an expensive, chic and Wife-Material’ kind of way. Whatever 'Wife Material' means these days anyway. And in a 'I take care of myself and my comfort' kind of way. That's the most important part.
Fifth - Lusomé are here to dispel the myth that their PJs are just here for the 50-something ladies going through the m-pause. In their own words ‘Lusomé is a beautifully designed sleepwear brand using the most innovative moisture management technology possible for naturally blended fabrics. Lusomé with Xirotex™ provides women with revolutionary moisture management in luxuriously soft fabrics expertly engineered for ultimate comfort.’
There are many causes of night sweats and hot flashes, such as postpartum, cancer treatment, thyroid problems, peri-menopause and menopause. 80% of all women will face night sweats at some point in their life.
When health issues erupted within her circle of family, friends and personally, Lusomé creator Lara Smith looked throughout North America and Europe for a sleepwear brand with beautiful style and soft fabrics. She found several moisture wicking brands, but they were using 100% polyester and chemicals in the finishing process. The urge to find a better solution occurred as Lara watched her sister battle breast cancer and the uncomfortable long-term side effects associated with the treatments.
Women want to feel beautiful and comfortable through these times of dealing with excessive moisture and heat. Drawing from 20 years of experience in the women’s fashion industry, with an emphasis in textile sourcing and innovation, Lara went to work in uncovering a technology solution that would perform in the exquisite fabrics she envisioned.
Lusomé was born with a commitment to quality, performance, beauty and grace.
"All beautiful things are made by those who strive to make something useful." - Oscar Wilde
To wrap it up (comfortably!): They’re right. Their product is worth every penny. Menopause or no menopause. The sale is LIVE. Get ‘em while they’re hot, or cool... as the case may be.
And there you have it. Lots of love and blessings for 2020, TBB xx
