As 2017 comes to a close, we’re taking a moment to look back and reflect on the year. 2017 was a big year for MOD By Parfait – it marked the debut of the line, with lingerie and swimwear available at select retailers starting in Spring 2018, and the launch of the MOD By Parfait blog.

While we’ve enjoyed bringing you articles on bra fitting, lingerie, body positivity, self love, health, wellness, and style, we can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store.

Here are some of our favorite MOD By Parfait blog posts from 2017:

You’ve probably heard that 80-90% of women are wearing the wrong bra size.

Here’s why this is often true: it’s normal for your bra size to change. In fact, your bra size can change if you lose weight, gain weight, become pregnant, have a baby, start breast feeding, stop breastfeeding, go through menopause, or if you have surgery (breast augmentation, breast reduction, mastectomy, reconstructive breast surgery), etc.

Most women wear multiple bra sizes throughout their lives as their boobs change as a result of any of the experiences above.

Unsure if you’re wearing the right bra size? We share what to look for.

3.  How To Help A Friend Who Is Struggling With Self Love

We all have friends who are super confident – and ones who are super self-conscious. As much as we tell our friends how amazing and gorgeous and fabulous they are, sometimes they just don’t believe us because they don’t believe that they are the embodiment of all of those wonderful things themselves.

You might already know that your relationship with yourself is arguably the most important relationship of your life. And, as they say, self love is a lifelong journey. Here’s how to be there for a friend who is struggling with self love.

Are you guilty of throwing your bras in the dryer? We all know someone who still does (and maybe that person is you!)

So, if you’re looking for a way to keep your bras looking and feeling new for as long as possible, this article is for you.

When it comes to bras, one of the worst mistakes you can make is buying a bra that doesn’t fit. Aside from being uncomfortable and even sometimes painful, an ill-fitting bra will absolutely change the fit of every single outfit that you wear it with. So, if you want your clothes to fit better, your posture to improve, and your back and boobs to finally feel supported and comfortable, go for a bra in the right size for you.

Here’s how a bra fitting can help you do just that.
