A few weeks ago, our deal of the week was on Nikibiki tanks. As someone fairly new to the Lil' Tulips staff I looked at them and considered buying one while they were on sale, but decided to hold off. I wear tank tops every.single.day. and the last thing I needed was more tanks. It's always hard for me to pass up a good deal, but my husband and I are trying to make some changes, pay off debt, and plan a trip to Disney for the kids, so I figured buying myself some new tanks was an unnecessary expense and passed on them.
Not too much later, Jenny got in all the new spring colors and asked if I'd like to try one so I could write a honest review of them on the blog. Not one to ever pass up the opportunity for free products - especially ones I know I'll use - I of course agreed. As you probably know, Lil' Tulips has crazy fast shipping and so 2 days later I had a new tank in my hands. I held it and was underwhelmed. $15 for a tank that weighed maybe an ounce? It felt thin and unimpressive. The color was pretty (a deep purple), but it wasn't anything I was majorly impressed with. Plus - they are one size tanks, so I was pretty confident it wouldn't fit. I WAS WRONG.
The next day, I slipped into my Nikibiki and fell in love. That night, I ordered an additional 3, and I'm doing my best not to order more (I'll let you know how that goes... I really want (and need!) all of them!!). For the first time in my lifeI've found something that truely is one size. Ok, so it might not fit my 14 month old daughter.... but it would fit me, would fit my mom, would fit my Aunts... and it would even fit a 60 pound heavier me (not that I plan on gaining 60 lbs - but that's what I packed on when pregnant ;) ).
Yes, I'm in love with my Nikibiki tank... and if anyone wants to buy me a few more, feel free!! Of course - get yourself one while you're at it!
