I met my best friend online, I met my boyfriend online, and I met Courtney, blogger behind Journey to Courtney, online. Our online paths first crossed when she modeled for Expect Lace, a Philadelphia lingerie boutique that carries Madalynne. Who is this girl – I want to know more! One, two, three clicks later and I was lurking her IG like an ex. She’s 28-year-old Philadelphian, full time writer, part time ranter, chronic shopper, coffee connoisseur and lover of all things lifestyle. She’s also undergone vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) procedure, losing over 100lbs since December 2015. By losing weight, she’s also gained a lot of knowledge about herself and she’s very honest about it on social, which I so appreciate in today’s filtered world.
When it comes to lingerie, Courtney has always struggled to find that perfect balance between support and pretty. “I think that anyone who’s a busty girl like myself can attest to the fact that often the two are almost mutually exclusive.” However, Courtney was one of the first to try Madalynne’s custom Barrett Bralette in 3XL, and “for the first time (possibly ever!) I’ve finally landed the best of both worlds.”
“What I love so much about this bralette is that not only is it size inclusive and super comfy, but the support is unlike any non-underwire bra that I’ve ever worn. Because it’s so versatile, I have the freedom to wear it everywhere from workouts to lounging.”
When it comes to what women want out of their intimates, Madalynne’s goal is offer pieces that are both beautiful and functional. “I’m excited to say that I’m one of the lucky ones who’ve found that in Madalynne’s pieces. Hopefully, you will too!”
