I’m Becky Connolly – a first time older mum to Reuben and married to Sean.

I have some chronic health conditions including fibromyalgia, joint hypermobility syndrome, IBS, hypothyroidism, Raynaud’s disease and generalised anxiety disorder.

As a Christian, occasionally what I write about will be influenced by my faith which I only wish to bring hope to my readers.

The Blog

Honestly Becky is a personal motherhood lifestyle blog sharing my first hand experience and advice on parenting little ones, health (including chronic pain and mental health), fashion and lingerie.

The blog began life as Becky’s Boudoir, which ran for a decade since conception in February 2011 (originally a Blogger ‘Blogspot’ blog before migrating to self hosted BeckysBoudoir.com Spring 2014) to February 2021. Becky’s Boudoir was predominantly a lingerie blog for the fuller busted figure, which gained recognition in the intimate apparel industry and community.

    Hi Becky,
    I just want you to know I came across your blog and it is so wonderful! First of all, let me say your posts are so informative and helpful to me and I can’t wait to read more. I have many similarities to you and I believe we are exactly (or right about) the same body size. Your reviews are perfect for me, and done so well. What an incredibly beautiful woman you are… so nice to come across this wealth of information!

    Hi Becky, sadly I’ve heard you’ve discontinued lingerie reviews due to a combination of body changes post pregnancy (and a number of trolls?).
    Could you possibly recommend an alternative blog that caters to lingerie for the larger figure?

      Hi Sandra, I’m afraid I’m out of the loop at the moment so I’m unsure who’s around to recommend. But I wouldn’t say I’ve discontinued totally from lingerie reviews, I’m just having a hiatus while I find me again.
