The challenge: Make a simple swim top that works for the most busts possible.
The variables: cup sizes, band sizes, and support demands (plus the coverage question).
Over the past 9 years a lot of things have changed, including our bodies. On a very personal level, we know what it’s like for bodies to fluctuate and change; the natural ebb and flow of being human.
In case you haven’t heard, our favourite holiday is coming up real soon, and hint — it’s not Christmas.
Never heard of Small Business Saturday before? We’d be thrilled to fill you in on why this day is arguably one of the most important (and meaningful) days of the year.
With the start of the holiday season, and especially the upcoming BFCM weekend, there's been a lot of buzz around the topic of sales. As a brand that chooses to have annual sales, we wanted to take this chance to share a bit of our perspective on the topic.
Here's how we honestly feel about this increasingly controversial subject...
You've found some great new basics, and you want to make them last forever. While we can't quite promise you forever, we can promise that caring for your clothing properly will drastically increase the lifespan of your new favourite items. Day after day we put our clothes through a lot, so we've compiled some common questions, essential info, and our best tips to help prolong the lifespan of your clothes.
Button-ups and busty chests — the two have never seemed to really get along. We've heard the woes of busty women ring through our shop, and in comments online, over and over again throughout the years. All too familiar with this problem herself, it was Julia's personal mission to design a shirt that she could button up over her bust without any gaping. And folks; we finally did it.
Fall is upon us, which means our closets are turning over a new leaf as well. Depending on your size, budget, and style, some might find it a bit of challenge to build a collection of slow fashion go to's and necessities. As a woman who exists in that weird world between straight & plus sizing (somewhere amidst a size 16/18), I figured I'd hop on the blog with some of my no-regret wardrobe suggestions to hopefully help a girl or two out!
Sometimes you find yourself fitting in both 'regular' and 'plus' sized clothing, and that can make shopping an absolute nightmare. You go into a store with a hopeful attitude and you come out feeling less than.
I believe there is absolutely no reason to choose not to wear something that you want to wear based on what the 'rules' are. Confidence is key and you can wear whatever the heck makes you feel good. That being said, here are some tips that work for me!
Chances are, your New Year’s resolutions have already fallen through. We’ll let you have a moment of defeat. But no longer. Because, it's time to give your resolutions a second shot.
Here’s a few takeaways we want to share to help you get re-inspired, re-motivation, and back on top of whatever it is you want to take on this year!
Last year was a big year for Nettle’s Tale. We opened the Nettle’s Tale flagship shop in Gastown (how was that only this year?!).
But aside from all of that, it’s you guys who stole the show in 2017. Thanks for being friends, followers, and for looking so g-dang good all year. We’re just lucky to come along for a bit of the ride. So before you take on 2018, take a sneak peek at last year.
Giving Tuesday is about supporting nonprofits with the same enthusiasm that we use to scoop up early Christmas presents and discount deals on Black Friday (or speed-click sale pages on Cyber Monday!).
For this year’s Giving Tuesday, we wanted to talk about the suit—and its charity—that started it all. Julia, the Julia suit, and the accessible water organization ACTS.
