Okay, Etsy, we’ve found some hope in you again. California-based Bernardo, who honed his skills in electronics from spending five years in the navy, started out selling single-color light up bras but has since expanded his range to include battery-powered light up hoodies. These come in blue, white, green, red or pink, and you can […]
