Let's Talk About Sex, Baby {Barely There Underwear Review and GIVEAWAY!}

Okay, so we’re not really going to talk about sex. Let’s just talk about underwear. That’s still pretty sexy, no?

A few weeks ago, along with a few other Bloggers, I had the pleasure of having lunch at the Barely There offices in Midtown Manhattan to preview their newest bras and undies. The event was hosted by the cute and funny Kimberly Gambale and Christina Scale, the lovely ladies of the reality show Jersey Couture (Oxygen Channel).


Not only did the event entail a “runway show” of Barely There underwear, but also a mini-session on how, when, and where the under garments are best worn. Barely There makes bras, panties, and shapewear that are free of ruffles, wrinkles, crinkles, lines, tags, and seams. It makes for very comfortable intimate apparels and the perfect foundation to stylish outfits.


During our mini-session, we had the opportunity to learn all about the CustomFlex Fit Collection (discussed in detail in this post) and the Invisible Look Collection (featured with underwire or wirefree and offers full support without the squishing and bulging).


The CustomFlex Fit Collection takes the guessing game out of finding the right bra size by combining 16 band/cup sizes into five Alpha sizes, XS – XL. No more thinking, “Am I a 34C or 36B?” (Or is that just me?). The CustomFlex Fit Collection includes a range of intimates like the Comfy Support, Fuller Coverage Foam, Regular Bandini, Foam Bandini, Reversible Pull-Over, and Active Cami.

At the event, I was able to get a bra fitting and learned that I was wearing the wrong bra size. Sort of. The size that I thought I was is the sister size to the size that I should be wearing. Glad to know I wasn’t totally off base.

I really like the Bandini (pictured below in pink) because it’s great for when I get home and just want to lounge around in a tank top. Instead of letting the girls hang out without proper support, I’ve been rocking my Bandini bras like it’s nobody’s business.


And the Active Cami? Loving it! I tested it out for my workout and have been wearing the Active Cami to workout ever since and plan to continue wearing it because it gives me support, but it’s also super comfortable.

I think that I have quite possibly fallen in love with the CustomFlex Fit Panties. I love a sexy pair of panties (lace back, bikini fit, etc.). It just makes me feel confident underneath my clothing. These panties are not only sexy, but they are also super soft. And seamless. And comfortable. And soft (did I say that already?). Seriously though, I don’t think I’ve ever felt a pair of panties this soft. I’ve been wearing them ever since and plan to add more to my collection. They’re available in hipster, bikini, hi-cut, thong, and boy-shorts.


But don’t take my word for it (although you should take my word for it), see and feel ‘em for yourself.

  3. Hey Alicia,

    Loved the blog. I just got some new bra's a couple of weeks ago. My husband was sooooooo very happy! I am just way to cheap! LOL's. I needed new undergarments, but I wasn't willing to pay the price for them. So, I waited for a killer sale and brought me some nice ones.

    The stuff you shared, to me, is for the younger generation. I like those cotton undies! LOL's. That covers every thing I own. LOL's. But I won't mind buying some for my nieces and grand-daughter's. I'm sure they would love them.

  4. I like the idea of the shapewear for torso and tummy since I have a little extra fluff in the middle.
