There’s a sale afoot!

Just noticed an email from Genie, there’s a sale on all their summer colors (15 colors!) for $9 each!  WITH FREE SHIPPING, too!   I have so many colors already that I may not order this time, but it’s an awesome deal and these work great for those of us with mastectomy who wear microbead breast forms, and especially well for those of us whose regular bras ride up because there’s NO problem of that with a Genie cami-shaper.  They are made with a ‘pocket’ built in, to hold the triangle shape modesty pads that they come with, and I’ve always been able to push my own size XL microbead breast forms inside them without having to cut the pocket’s opening any larger.  I still urge people to get at least one or two sizes larger than you think you need because in your true size they are very snug, as in ‘being hugged by a python’ snug, and that could cause swelling in your arm where lymph nodes were removed.  My own size should be L, or maybe XL, but I get 2X and love it!  Because of worries about lymphedema issues when we wear too-tight items, I’d never wear one for shaping, but even the ones I get a couple sizes larger still do shape up my tummy a bit.  Be aware that often a LOT of people order during their sales so sometimes it takes weeks and weeks for them to get to everyone, and occasionally they make a color mistake.  I recently ordered the ‘hula blue’ and got a green instead, so I emailed them about it and they sent another one to me for free…and…you guessed it…it was green again, sigh…..  BUT, I’d say that about 98% of the time, they’d get a five star review from me.  For savings like this and free shipping, an occasional color mistake or long shipping time is still worth it.  If you want any though, look at their website fast because they are already running out of some color/size combinations, sigh…  If you don’t know where their website is, it’s at this link:
