Before I became a mom I swore I would never be one of those moms that "let herself go". I would shower everyday, do may hair, wear makeup and my outfit would always be on point (only back then "on point" wasn't a thing. Actually, is it still a thing now?). Sometimes I think about the moms I used to admire and wanted to be like and wonder what the heck they actually looked like every other day of the week besides Sunday morning when I saw them at church. If there is one thing I have learned in motherhood, it is that letting oneself go is way easier than our pre-mommy selves could have ever imagined.

I think of this sometimes when I look in the mirror and see my disheveled hair or when I can't quite remember when I last washed it. But it became a stark reality to me recently when I realized I had been wearing ripped underwear for who knows how long. I don't mean holey underwear, I mean ripped as in hanging on by a thread. I looked in the mirror and thought, who am I?
As fate would have it, not too long after this realization (and still placing said underwear back in the drawer), I received an invitation to try out BootayBag . If that's not a sign, I don't know what is! I quickly agreed and I received my bag in just a matter of days.
What is Bootay Bag?
It's genius, if you ask me! BootayBag is a subscription company for underwear. Sign up and receive your BootayBag on a monthly basis (this is the default but you can adjust it to bi-monthly, if so desired).
How much does it cost?
It's only $12, shipping included for U.S. and you get two pair of underwear. (International shipping is $10.)
What kind of underwear will I get?
You have your choice of thongs, non-thongs or mix it up. And yes, BootayBag's styles are on the sexy side. Still classy but sexy and a far cry better than ripped up grannies.
When will my bag ship?
Bags ship on the 16th of each month. (Orders must be received on or before the 16th; orders received after the 16th will ship the following month.)
I was really happy with my BootayBag. I got a white pair and a navy blue pair. Though, BootayBag does emphasize the "sexy" part, they are comfortable and they are definitely not over the top sexy (my mom saw them and I wasn't embarrassed... I mean, she didn't see them on me).
This is such a simple and affordable way to make an investment in something you need and that will bring your confidence level up a little. I feel bad about my body size on a daily basis but I actually felt better wearing these than I do in my beat up undies (because, let's be honest, they're all pretty bad).
