Welcome back to the True to Form editorial collaboration with Revealed by Curve magazine! In this photo exploration, I’ve styled different intimates and sleepwear brands to showcase different sides of myself (and of all women and folks).

We all have so many different sides to us and different roles that we play from time to time. While stepping into these different roles, how do we show up fully and stay true to who we are? Just like undergarments have the power to shape and modify our bodies, we have the opportunity to shape how we show up. Hurray! This is the third of seven photo explorations.

In this look, I partnered with French brand, Simone Perele. While the last look explored our inner child, this one explores our inner mother, and our high capacity to nurture others and ourselves. Self-care is the key to not only supporting ourselves but making it possible to support and care for others. I paired the stunning Bloom bra and high waist panty from Simone Perele together for a supportive yet delicate look.

Psst! This post is sponsored by Simone Perele. I’m so grateful to share them with you. I always share items that I truly love and can help you say hurray.

And yes, that’s a real baby (not mine!) that made her modeling debut into some of the photos! Even though we don’t have to have children to be nurturing, I loved being able to showcase that side of myself with this little gal. Huge thanks to Kalie Goodwin, who helped with the shoot, and who volunteered her precious baby, Parker, for this look.
