Why Your Bra Band is Riding Up and Digging In

First let me start by saying Happy Tata Tuesday! I’m starting something new by posting a video every Tuesday with a special Bra Care Tip. This week in our first episode I’m talking about your bra band. 

45% of women are wearing a bra with a band that is too BIG causing the band to move and ride up their back. While another 40% are wearing a bra with a band that is too SMALL causing a painful result!

The Philly Bra Lady Talks Career + Confidence

 

Headshot 2016

Read all about Karima + How she came to be the Philly Bra Lady in Fluff Magazine. To find out more about Bundles and Bras follow her @Karima_Renee #ThePhillyBraLady on all social media.

On June 11th 2016 in Philadelphia, Pa I will be hosting the first Bundles & Bra’s Event with Luxury Hair Brand Indique. A year in the making, Bundles and Bras is the brainchild of  Karima Renee, aka The Philly Bra Lady.

Traditionally a woman’s crown and glory was just considered to be her hair. As with many things, much value and self worth is put on a woman physical appearance. But I believe a woman’s crown is not just what’s on her head but whats in it. On the flip side, I believe a woman’s glory is her bosom. Its the one thing that physically differentiates us from men. Also its a giver of life! As women we are the true givers of life, literally and figuratively.  

The event will be a 2 hour workshop and q&a on how taking care of your crown (bundles of hair included) is just as important as taking care of your glory aka your bras. Karima will also feature her bra bootcamp basics with a live bra fit demo. She will also show guest her secret to extending the shelf life of your bra and bundle hair.

“This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.”

This past Saturday Macys King of Prussia in Philadelphia kicked off their annual prom celebration. Held every April, it’s a special fashion show event highlighting the seasons top trends for prom goers. And yes every city has its own traditions, style and flare and Philly is no different. But in fashion some things are across the board. Like skinny jeans and leather moto jackets. Which are not prom approved by the way.

Nonetheless, trends change every year, thats the nature of fashion and for prom its no different. Thats all apart of the magic of Macys, especially if you are not a fashionista or just confused about what to wear to prom.

His & Her Gift Ideas @ Phila. Mills Mall

Second to my birthday Valentines Day is one of my all time favorite holidays. Call me a hopeless romantic if you want but I love, love. Commercialism aside, Valentines day is the perfect excuse to show someone just how much you love them, just because.

Not that long ago I told women what to get their guys for Valentines day. As I don’t think the day should be all about my fellow ladies. Men need to get some love too. Having said that, recently I partnered with Simon Malls, Philadelphia Mills Location to feature my favorite Valentines Day Gift Ideas for 2016. What I love most about “The Mills” is that you have designer brands at deep discounts as well as boutique sized big named retail brands. Here’s what I found at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Saks Off 5th and Neiman Marcus Last Call! 

  1. The Cards + Candy

Yes, I’m that girl. I love flowers, cards and candy! My favorite cards and stationary are from Papyrus. And did you know Papyrus cards are sold at Bed, Bath & Beyond? Well now you do! Hallmark who? 

2. Gift Basket

Bed, Bath & Beyond is the perfect place to get creative on a budget for Valentines Day. I made this basket with all the great finds I collected there. Its my version of a his and hers (naught and nice) gift basket. Children exit stage right! Here’s whats inside: Pink blind fold, bullet shaped flask, feather duster, 750 thread count silk sheets, mens grooming kit and edible chocolate sauce. Share if you dare.
