October Alight Giveaway

This will be a monthly giveaway, ending on the last day of the month each month!

Here is my experience with Alight:

I have to be honest, when I get pregnant I gain a good amount of weight. Usually somewhere around 30 lbs. By my six week check up it’s usually gone.

But the skin . . . the skin always stays. And then I continue to eat like I’m pregnant, but I’m not. And I start gaining weight again. It takes a year or so for me to get “balanced” back out, and even then the skin isn’t the same ever!

So, one of the struggles that has come with this is shirts. The plain t-shirts I wore before I ever had a baby stick out in all the wrong places, making me look pregnant all over again. I tried some of the shirts that have princess seams right under the chest, but they end up looking like maternity shirts as well.

However, I found a store that has some really cute styles for those of us that might have a bit more we would like to hide – Alight.com

 

They sent me an adorable shirt . . . unfortunately, I guess I should have ordered a size larger because it’s not quite long enough. Because of the way it kept riding up under my chest, one of my friends told me it looked like “a tutu for your boobs!” LOL While that might appeal to some of you, for the rest I would advise ordering just a bit bigger size if you select an all cotton shirt.
