You! Lingerie brings beautiful high fashion, playful and luxurious breastfeeding lingerie to stylish moms at an affordable price.  The mission of You! Lingerie is to make breastfeeding mommies and mommies-to-be feel confident and look beautiful every day, even with the “mommy” title. 

This beautiful and very affordable lingerie brand offers bras and panties made with luxurious soft fabrics and playful colored laces featuring the decorative signature hot pink bows.  Every bra is designed to provide maximum comfort with accommodating soft cups.  With 20% spandex panels, four-hook back clasps, molded cups and wide elastic bands, the nursing bras are easy fitting and adjustable for the changing woman. 

Owner of You! Lingerie, Uyo Okebie-Eichelberger, told us that during her market research, she was really surprised to discover that so many moms felt exactly like she did... stuck between a rock and hard place.  "I was used to wearing beautiful and sexy lingerie before I became pregnant.  I hated the idea of wearing just plain black functional nursing bras,” said Uyo.  After becoming frustrated with the nursing industry and not wanting to settle for drab nursing bras or breaking the bank for expensive lingerie, Uyo took matters into her own hands and designed something perfectly in-between.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding are beautiful experiences, so why wear unflattering lingerie or pay an exuberant amount for a high end one?  The quality features and gorgeous colors distinguish You! Lingerie bras and panties from its drab counterparts. Even better, the lingerie is reasonably priced.  All bras are between $29.99 and $34.99!

Today, most jewelry has a message, especially for new  parents who are celebrating the miracle of life that has come into their world.  Bliss Living offers the most beautiful selection of personalized mommy jewelry with your children’s names. A few of our favorites are:
Heidi Klum on Oprah Family Necklace (in Gold or Silver)
Heidi Klum as beautiful and successful as she is and very  high profile, wore an elegant little black dress and a simple gold necklace  when on Oprahs show. On closer inspection, we saw that the necklace with three  gold charms actually carries the name of her three children so that she has  them with her wherever she goes. No matter how busy or in demand, she always  has her family to remind her of the true values in life. We now call this the  Heidi Klum necklace because of the huge demand for it. Created by hand just  like Heidi Klums, BlissLiving’s “Heidi Klum on Oprah Family Necklace” features your children’s names on a delicate 14kt gold charm. When you order  the necklace ask for as many charms to be engraved as you have members of your  family.
