The mamas in our crew are strong, fearless, and totally badass. We asked some of our fave moms about how their favorite LIVELY styles support and empower them. Consider us completely inspired…
On top of being co-founder of NYC cool-girl accessories brand, OVERT, Lauren Kozica is also mother to her adorable boy, Teddy! She walks us through her daily mama routine and what LIVELY pieces get her through her hustle.
"By the time Teddy is fed, had his diaper changed, dressed, two tantrums down and finally ready for daycare, I'm tempted to put my PJ’s back on, let alone dress like a human and head to work. Comfort is everything when you’re always a little bit tired! My LIVELY Mesh Trim No-Wire is the perfect base layer. I might get the occasional blow out and throw on a pair of heels, but underneath... I’m as comfortable and low maintenance as it gets."

When Aimee Rudic isn't designing amazing art-driven textiles or creating the latest LIVELY print (she designed the Rudic Print!
) she's running around Brooklyn with her tiny BFF's Mayfair and Harlow!
"I guess I have to say that The Mesh Trim Bralette in Rudic Print (duh) is my favorite --- but overall, despite the print or color, the LIVELY bralettes rock! They are my perfect multi-tasker. From chasing kids, to the gym, to studio time, and out for dates, I am usually wearing the bralette style and love letting a hint of it show for an added pop of "make-me-feel-cool."

LIVELY's very own PR wiz and co-founder of Azione, Leland Drummond, takes on LA,NYC, and life with her little boy, Oliver, in her favorite LIVELY pieces!
"I love The Long-Lined Lace Bralette because it fits into my busy life in so many ways. It's lightweight, yet supportive, whether I'm running around after Oli after work or just trying to make it on time to meetings, and it's just flirty and sexy enough to feel great in my own skin- it also is so pretty under more shear shirts. It's one of the few things in my life that I don't have to think about, it's just there for me. I actually have this particular style in every color"

Lacey Shelton is getting through her 24/7 hustle, raising her gorgeous 1 year old, and being an amazing yogi-mom with a little help from her go-to leisurée! "I wear The Mesh Trim Bralette daily!
"Since I'm still breastfeeding my 15 month old, I needed a bra that supported both nursing and made me feel cute, sexy and like a real human! I appreciate that this bra allows me to have all aspects of my life covered...from sleeping to coffee dates and even that nursing time with my baby girl!"

After becoming a mom, Colleen Crivello and her BFF decided to revolutionize motherhood for new moms with their editorial and shopping haven, MINIMODE. She let us in on two major tips!

Kristin McGee is a yoga teacher, pilates teacher, speaker, and most importantly a kick-ass mom to her 3 boys!
"The T-Shirt Bra is by far my favorite! It completely disappears under my tees and yoga tops is super comfortable! It's the perfect option for me once I'm done nursing and the bralette styles are amazing because I can even wear them while nursing!"

LIVELY'S Creative Director, Sarah Sullivan, may have designed all of LIVELY's must-have pieces but she can still play favorites...
“I love how minimal and comfortable The Mesh Trim No Wire is! And how flattering it looks under (and without!) clothes.”
