You may think it strange that I am thanking a nursing pad company since I’m not currently breastfeeding, but I just had to share. I bought LilyPadz when I was nursing Ollie for their marketed purpose — so my boobs didn’t leak milk all over the place when I went out to dinner or to a wedding or wherever. They’re basically silicone pasties you wear on your ta-tas; a simple concept strippers have known about for decades now.
So it was great. When I was breastfeeding Ollie (something, incidentally, I would recommend to all new moms sheerly for the weight loss — I lost 40 pounds in two weeks while eating like a blue whale and never going to the gym!), I never had any unsightly wet spots on my shirt that made people think I had a gland problem in my boobs or leaky milk jugs. But even after I was done nursing and my rack regained normalcy, I actually ordered another pair of the ‘Padz just so I could burn all my ridiculously uncomfortable strapless bras.
Because pre-Padz, if I wanted to wear a sleeveless dress or tank, I’d have to break out the old Band-Aids for my boobs if I didn’t feel like enduring the torture of my strapless bras. But now, I just slap on my LilyPadz and am good to go bra-less if the mood for being au-natural strikes. They’re perfect!
