This summer I’m looking forward to a minimal version of the matching set trend: cropped square neck tank and high rise shorts and pants. A pair of slides, simple accessories, and a low bun will make it easy to leave the house looking chic. I’m not usually one for matchy matchy, but this trend got me! My wish list set is the Aura Roma Top and the Florence Shorts paired with these slide sandals from Nordstrom, and accessorizing with these twist hoop earrings and delicate twist cuff.

 

Matching sets, linen, and gauze… oh my! If you want to be in on the trends but keep it minimal, the matching linen and gauze sets are an easy way to make that happen. I found a budget friendly linen set on Etsy and a cute gauze romper gauze romper from Evereve. This Loft set is cute but selling fast. I love a good matching pant set  like this from Free People as well.

Are you into the matching sets this summer?

BRAS + MOM BOOBS

 

Is your bra so uncomfortable that you can’t wait to rip it off at the end of the day? Maybe things just aren’t the same after having children or breastfeeding? Let’s chat about four ways to know that your bra doesn’t fit you. Then I’m going to teach you some simple tricks on how to lift those #momboobs so they are perky in a bra (even after breastfeeding). Let’s get into it!

 

  • 1. Straps. Are you always having to adjust your bra strap or are they sliding off your shoulder? If so, your bra does not fit you mama. If you have indents or grooves in your skin after taking your bra off for the day, it’s not working properly. Did you know that 80% of the bra’s support comes from the band? If the straps are the major support for your boobs  – I’m sorry but you’re doing it wrong!

 

  • 2. Band. If your band is riding up in the back and making the shape of a rainbow, it’s probably too big. Yep, too big. Like I said above, the band holds 80% of the load, so if the band is riding up it’s not fitting you snug enough. Also, for larger chested ladies, a wider band is more beneficial because it better distributes the weight of the breasts. As far as the hooks in the back go, you should be able to wear it on the first, maybe the second set of hooks. The hooks are to move in tighter over time as the bra stretches. So if you’re starting on the last set of hooks to make it tight when you first buy it, it’s too big. 

 

  • 3. This one is my favorite because you can spot this on anyone, it’s not something that only you notice. I could look into a sea of women at Target and say, “oh she has four boobs, her bra doesn’t fit.” If your breast tissue is spilling outside of your bra and you can pat it above the cup, your cup size is too small. So if your bra is cutting into the middle of your breast and your boobs are popping – and not in a pretty push up way – but your tissue is hanging outside of your bra and it should be inside your cup…it’s too small mama. It’s kind of like underwear. Have you ever seen people who are wearing the wrong underwear because it cuts their butt in half and they have four butts?! We don’t need four butts. We also don’t need four boobs. If you are wearing the proper bra, even with a large chest, you can even wear a v-neck and you won’t be spilling out. 

 

  • 4. Your bra moves. When you take off your shirt, does your bra ride up or move around? Do you feel like you’re always having to adjust it? If so, it’s not the right bra – it doesn’t fit and you need to get fitted. It’s crazy, but 80% of women wear the wrong bra size. Here’s the thing, if you don’t want to go get fitted for a bra because you think you have back fat…no, just no! We ALL have back fat because a bra pushes the tissue up, it’s called skin! But if the band is wide enough, supports, and fits you properly – then the band is working for you, and you’re not going to have any extra “back fat.” 

 

There’s a myth that bra fittings for women who don’t have big boobs doesn’t matter. It matters SO much! The bra is the foundation just like skincare is to makeup. If you don’t have the proper skincare, your makeup isn’t going to look good, no matter how much you pay for it! You could try on shirts all day and blame the shirt for it gaping in the middle or it not fitting properly…but it’s probably your bra. I know it’s a pain to get fitted and it’s also a pain to spend money on something that nobody is really seeing except for you. I’m telling you it will make the biggest difference in your wardrobe. Getting the right undergarments is one of the easiest fixes to a lot of your wardrobe problems. 


 

So now for the bra boob lifting trick you’ve been waiting for! I’ve gotten so much great feedback from everyone after chatting about this on The Purpose Show with Allie Casazza – Episode 197. I remember back when I was shown this at Nordstrom…I was like, “you’re kidding, I have to lift up my boobs and smooth them out?!” I was really kind of put off at first, like I’m not that old…I don’t need to be doing this! I did. After breastfeeding I did. It’s a little bit awkward at first, but I’ve been doing it for about four years now, since having Max. 

 

BRAS + MOM BOOBS

 

I’m not a super expert on bras, but we’ll call this trick the Lift & Smooth. Okay, what you want to do when you go to put your bra on is bend over so that all of your breast tissue comes down into the cups. Then finish putting on your bra by hooking it in the back and adjusting the straps properly. Then this is the fun part – you want to take your hand all the way down into the bottom of the cup and pull your breast tissue up. Scoop ALL of it up like a push up bra would! 

 

So, you’ve put on your bra and you’ve lifted up your breast tissue and you’re wondering why it doesn’t look all smooth and pretty. If your breast tissue is like mine and most of my clients, it’s kind of crepey, or just not as full and dense as it was before pregnancy and breastfeeding. The next step is to stand up straight and take two fingers (your index and middle fingers) from the center of your chest and slide them up towards your armpit, working the tissue to smooth it out. Obviously do this on both sides, then they should stay lifted like this all day and you shouldn’t need to adjust. This works for any bra – wireless bras, sports bras, any bra. I promise you it’s going to make a difference in how your shirts fit.

 

While this trick is great, my best advice is to get properly fitted for a bra. My favorite place to get fitted is Nordstrom because they have a wide range of brands and sizes. Bras are like jeans. I can wear one cup and band size in one brand, and another cup and band size in another brand. Having someone who really knows the brands and can bring you different types to see what works best for you is great since you might be one size here and one size there. My second favorite place to go for fittings is Soma. Even within one brand they know how each bra fits differently and they can put a bra on you and know that’s the right size, but maybe that style doesn’t work for you. Just like jeans, some women need a higher rise and some need a lower rise or maybe a wider leg, etc. We’re all different! They can fit you in a bra like I could fit you in jeans. So go get fitted at Nordstrom or Soma, stay away from Victoria’s Secret please, it’s just not good. 

 

If you aren’t ready to go for a fitting, try the Lift & Smooth trick first and see what a difference it makes. It’s kind of like an at home little lift that you don’t have to pay for. Seriously it’s almost like you have new boobs, it’s pretty incredible! Be sure to tag or message me on Instagram @jammiebaker_ and let me know how it worked for you!

Last week while styling a client she admitted:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“I put comfort over style & I don’t know how to mix the two”.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you relate? Do you want an actionable tip to help you combine style + comfort and elevate your everyday?

Let me start by saying that you CAN be stylish + comfortable. As a mom, I for sure value comfort… GOODBYE heels, HELLO sneaks.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Replace the frumpy “go-to” pieces in your wardrobe that you grab strictly for comfort with slightly elevated versions of the same thing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to be frumpy + just because you want to be comfortable doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Start by replacing your stretched out yoga pants + gross tee with these super cute bike shorts + buttery soft tee from one of my favorite brands, L & M Co. Add a pop of color with this Everywhere Belt Bag, a statement necklace, and maybe even the sporty sandal trend. Use code JAMMIE10 at L & M Co. for 10% off your purchase.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just like that… you went from frumpy mom to hot mama.

I had the honor of being on The Woman of Wellness Podcast with my friend, Elizabeth, this past week. We tackled one of my favorite topics: weight + style.

 

We bust the myth that weight and size has anything to do with personal style.

 

 

If you have been waiting to lose the 10 pounds to make you feel worthy of getting dressed in that cute outfit or allowing thoughts of unworthiness until your “pre-baby” jeans fit… this episode is for you!

Beach and pool season is HERE 🎉 so this week I’m sharing the CHIC MOM beach look. These classic, neutral pieces might not be for the days where you’re chasing littles at your neighborhood pool but maybe for your next getaway with the girls or staycation with your spouse.

If you’re looking for something to haul #allthethings but a Bogg Bag just isn’t you, the neoprene tote might be just what you’re looking for. The Chloe sandals are on my wish list but these might be more realistic. I love the one shoulder twist on a classic black suit (this one has incredible reviews). And don’t forget… there’s absolutely nothing chic about a sunscreen, lather up!

Mother’s Day is just ONE WEEK away! Are you celebrating with your family, alone, or with your mom friends? We’re having brunch on Saturday and planning some sort of outdoor activity on Sunday.  I can’t handle restaurant crowds on holidays, no thanks! However you plan to celebrate, I’ve got a weekly outfit for you, my top 10 last minute gift ideas, and a workout I’m loving.

If you’re like me and need a little boost of color on your legs, I love this clean brand and I use this glove to apply it. If it’s chilly you could throw a denim jacket over your shoulders. If shorts aren’t your jam, replace the romper with a jumpsuit or a bodysuit and wide leg pants

 

barre ALLEY

 

A friend introduced me to Kendra’s virtual barre classes right after having Max. If you’ve been around here for awhile you know I’m OBSESSED with my Peloton, but if there is one other at home workout that I love (almost) as much. BARREALLEY is not only an incredible community and workout but it’s a mom owned small business.

Now that I’m in my third trimester, I’m not able to ride the bike and switched to the Barre Bump program with my BARREALLEY membership.

Kendra has a no fluff approach to working out and eating well and I love it. You can grab 30 Days of BARREALLEY for FREE. Try it out and let me know what you think!

 

MOTHER’S DAY PICKS

When it comes to gifts, I’m all about experiences or practical yet thoughtful choices. If it gives mama a break or elevates her everyday experience, I’m here for it.

With that being said, I’ve rounded up my top 10 last minute Mother’s Day gift ideas. 

If you have never had an experience with ZEEL, you need it and a mom in your life does too. It’s a massage service that comes to your home. Say WHAT?! It’s one of our favorite date nights. Give me a bubble bath with this soak, a massage in front on the fire, and a 10 second walk to my bed? SOLD.

These Properly Buttoned repurposed designer button jewelry pieces are so beautiful. My clients have been loving the pieces and I do too. Elevate your everyday, without the designer price tag! DM Catherine on IG to grab your piece and use code: JAMMIEFREESHIP for free shipping!

I just discovered this non toxic nail company and I’m loving it. Dries in five minutes and it’s long lasting. I recommend starting with the mini kit.

Have fun shopping and I would love to hear if you try any of these for yourself or a mom in your life. I’m also saying a prayer that you get a nap and some peace and quiet this Mother’s Day 🙂

This weeks outfit is perfect for running errands or grabbing dinner in comfort AND style. Don’t worry… if black isn’t your jam, this dress comes in a lot of colors. I added some neutral boho accessories and a neutral bag that I would wear like a belt bag across the chest. But the fun thing about style is, you do you!

One thing I always have on hand in Spring and Summer is a pair of short bike shorts for under my dresses. They aren’t as tight as Spanx but they prevent any accidental “shows” and not so fun chub rub with the thighs! Plus I feel like they hold me in just enough.
