Molly and Cynthia make a lot of jokes, but they began and continue to run their business primarily to help women with large chests feel good about themselves. The participate in charitable acts, too. Loren is irresponsible.

Violence

Sex

Language

Words like "crap" and "bitch" are sometimes audible, while words like "boobs," "juicy jugs" and "dits" are frequently used for the word "breasts."

Consumerism

The series is a promotional vehicle for the Atlanta-based Livi' Rae lingerie store. Images from Loren's music videos with her band, The Coedz, are sometimes shown.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Wine, cocktails, and champagne are occasionally visible at restaurants and parties.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Double Divas features women of all sizes being fitted for bras and other lingerie along with lots of saucy humor. While some of the focus is on helping women feel better about themselves, there's lots of sexual innuendo, some salty vocab, and occasional celebratory drinking, though no nudity.

What's the story?

The reality series DOUBLE DIVAS stars best friends Molly Hopkins and Cynthia Richards, the owners of Livi' Rae lingerie store, as they cater to women of all shapes and sizes. The Atlanta-based duo, who specializes in fitting women with large chest sizes, is committed to helping women feel better physically and emotionally by designing and fitting their clients with appropriately-sized bras and other undergarments. With the help of the sexy-but-flaky assistant Loren, they also add some spice to bachelorette parties and other events.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

Double Divas highlights the unique -- but important -- culture surrounding the ladies undergarment business, which caters to helping women feel better about themselves as well as helping to alleviate physical discomforts. It also underscores some of the struggles women of all ages face when the size and/or shape of their bodies does not match the conventional sizes the industry caters to.

There are some thoughtful themes here, but Molly and Cynthia's spicy Southern humor, which includes the use of a variety of nicknames for the word "breasts," sometimes makes it hard to take their work seriously. It also makes the continual images of women in their underwear and/or being fitted for bras feel a little awkward, too.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about body image issues. How do things like wearing appropriately sized undergarments and clothing make people feel better about themselves? Is this the same for boys or men? Why is humor often used to talk about this?
