Okay, this is going to sound like a straight up advertisement because I want to talk about Ruby Ribbon, a company I discovered this summer that I am absolutely in love with.
I do not sell Ruby Ribbon. My mom does for full transparency purposes, but she did not ask me to write this post.
So what is it? RR is a company that sells shape-wear and other clothing. It’s not spanx, though. The tag line of Ruby Ribbon is “Ditch your bra” and be comfortable. Because, let’s face it: bras are uncomfortable. The underwire pokes at you and you constantly have to pay for new ones. If you hate that life, then check out the camis and demiettes Ruby Ribbon has to offer.
I wear my demiette every other day, mostly because the grippers that keep the girls up where they need to be need a day of rest between wear. I am fully covered, and the demiette gives you lift without an underwire. Full disclosure: it looks like one of those sports bras that give you a uni-boob. I’m here to tell you that I do not have a uni-boob. I do not have a cami, so I can’t speak to those, but I did wear my demiette at the beach and no boob sweat. Ladies, it’s awesome.
I have a couple other non-shape-wear items from Ruby Ribbon that I adore, but the demiette is where it is at. The prices are about what you would see at Soma (maybe a tad higher in some cases), and the pieces are totally plus size friendly.
Yes, the company is ran like Mary Kay, which means you can buy from a consultant or online. A consultant is good to have in the beginning to make sure you buy the right size, but returns and exchanges are super easy (that I can say from experience. I suggest you go up a size if you choose to get the boy shorts that are fantastic to wear under running shorts and to theme parks to prevent that lovely thigh chafing we get sometimes).
Okay, my advertisement time is up. I promise not to post about this often (unless something new comes out that I am dying for like the new racerback demiette they just released as part of their active line). We will return to our normal random schedule.
