Frequently Asked Questions
Do I really not have to wear a bra with this top? The whole idea behind our tops and nightgowns is that you don’t ever have to wear a bra. Our Light Hug ™ is not meant to lift and support or enhance your cleavage. It, literally, lightly hugs your breasts allowing you to feel free and unbound. The shirring on the front of our tops and nightgowns provides camouflage to help hide your nipples. When sized just right the shirring will provide the coverage you need to not advertise the fact that you are braless. Even our large chested customers find they still feel comfortable going braless in our tops.
How is the Light Hug ™ supposed to fit? Unlike other inside shelves, ours is not meant to lift and support. It is meant to have a looser fit than what you are used to in order to feel free and be comfortable enough to sleep in. The length of the Light Hug ™ is slightly longer than a traditional shelf and the elastic should fit but not bind around the under part of your breast.
What is the difference between the regular fabric and the ribbed? The ribbed fabric has more texture to it because it has small ridges on both sides of the fabric where as the regular is smooth. The ribbing adds a unique dimension to the product while also providing additional camouflage in the tops. Both are equally soft and buttery in texture and in weight. The differences are very subtle. Here is a side-by-side comparison:
How do your sizes run? Please see size chart provided on each page. Overall, they run true to size. Our JJs are made up of primarily a sustainable modal fabric. As soft and yummy and less harmful to the environment as that it is, we have found that, after being washed, the fibers in the garment will relax and loosen. So, if you are between sizes, it is best to size down.
What is modal fabric? It is a super soft fiber made from beech trees. It is considered a semi-synthetic because the raw material, cellulose, is a natural material which is then turned into fiber using an environmentally-friendly chemical process. The feel is soft and luscious.
How do I care for my JJs? The best way to show your JJs some love is to wash in a mesh bag using machine cold wash and low temperature dryer. Do not hang your tops or nightgowns from their straps.
Where are JJs made? In Los Angeles, California. Our fabric is also locally made.
Will Happy Hour pants be too long for a woman under 5’4? With an inseam of 31", yes, our regular length pants will be a little long as we make to accommodate as many different heights as possible. As a lounge pant, many customers are fine with a little extra length. If this is a concern for you, try our Cloud 9 legging as that has the same comfy and forgiving fit as our Happy Hour pant, but is tapered at the ankle. We offer alternate lengths in some colors. For those, we have a petite length pant with an inseam of 28" and is best for someone 5'2" and under. For taller heights, we have a 31" long length which is best for 5'9" and over.
Are JJs Bump Friendly? While we are not maternity-specific, JJs work well for the first two trimesters and are the perfect choice for leaving the hospital with baby when you want to feel put together during those stressful days of being a new mom. Customers tell us the loose fitting inside shelf can be helpful when breastfeeding.
