Having been blessed with a colossal chest and curves that just won’t quit, I’ve been strapped into an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder since my 11th birthday. I skipped right past the training-bra stage and settled — extremely awkwardly — into a full C cup just months into middle school. As years passed, my bust grew out of cutesy Victoria’s Secret styles, forcing me to scour through racks of woebegone beige bras, settling for literally anything that appeared to keep my chest in check. Those adorable bralettes, all lacy and sexy, seemed solely for the slimmer set; not an option for the D-plus crowd, and especially for me, a 38H.
For those looking to go bigger than wilted flowers and a card this holiday season, it's important to remember that romance is still priority number one. After all, a giant flat screen TV might seem like a cool idea, but it's not exactly going to enhance the mood. From weekend getaways to silky pajamas, here are romantic gift ideas that will make you a holiday hero.

Lingerie is not very sexy if it does not fit. Adore Me CEO Morgan Hermand-Waiche founded the company six years ago to challenge Victoria's Secret by offering a larger array of sizes. In an industry that often tops out at DD, Adore Me has bras from super-petite size 30A to plus sizes up to 46I.
Social media has taken over the digital landscape — and smart brands are learning that its influence extends far beyond a boost in new followers or an uptick in “likes.”
Case in point: Online lingerie retailer Adore Me was amid an expansion, which resulted in a need to scale its customer support. In search of a solution that went beyond outdated, frustrating long calls on hold or lengthy e-mail response wait times, the retailer turned to social media management software platform Sprout Social Inc.
Washing our laundry on a regular basis is called a chore for a reason, and if we're being completely transparent, we often avoid doing it for weeks at a time. The thing is, double-dipping into your dirty socks is one thing. Wearing underwear more than once, however, definitely isn't (c'mon, it's gross!). So for those who want to put off cleaning their clothing for as long as possible, buying panty sets might just be the way to go.
From Olympic weightlifting bronze medal-winner Sarah Robles to Instagram yoga sensation Jessamyn Stanley to Women’s Running cover star Erika Schenk, plus-size athletes are more visible than ever — and an increasing number of activewear brands have finally begun dressing them. Major athletic apparel manufacturers like Nike and Champion, less specialized retailers including Forever 21 and Target, and indies you’ve very possibly never heard of have all entered the fray of making activewear above a size XL.
Pajamas aren't just for bedtime, y'all. Slips now double as minis, robes can be belted to make dresses or layered over an outfit as duster coats, while silky separates — worn together or on their own — simply need a cute clutch and a pair of heels to be deemed work-appropriate. Don't miss out on the coziest trend in town.
While celebrating Labor Day, Hilary Duff was seen enjoying the last day of Summer at a beach in Malibu. The star relaxed by the ocean with her son, Luca, wearing a simple two-piece by Adore Me. Instead of opting for an all-white look, Hilary went for a classic style that every woman should have in her swimsuit rotation: a black bikini. Her flattering bikini top featured a plunging neckline and had multiple straps at the back. Have a closer look at Hilary's strappy swimsuit ahead, and buy similar ones for your collection if you're feeling inspired.
She's a busy actress, producer, and mother of one.
But Hilary Duff took some time off to enjoy the holiday as she was seen frolicking on the beach in Malibu for Labor Day.
The 29-year-old star let her enviable figure take center stage in a skimpy black Adore Me bikini as she was joined by her five year-old son Luca and ex-husband Mike Comrie.

While we’ve technically got until the solstice to call it "summer," Labor Day weekend is widely observed as your last unofficial chance for getting in that picnic, barbecue, or beach trip before September really gets underway. But it’s also good for something else — namely, sweet deals. Pretty much every major retailer gets in on the sales frenzy, as do a number of indie brands. They’re not waiting ‘til the weekend, either, with a bunch of discounts live since last week.
