We’ve made it through the first round of the 2021 Best Bottom March Madness season, and what a ride it was!
We have slimmed down from our field of 16 to the elite 8.
Did your favorites make the cut, is there a Cinderella among us?
Only time will tell; for now, let’s recap the first round, shall we?
Best Bottom Diapers Western Conference Round 1 Recap
Let’s start in the Western Conference!
Flower Child vs. Pacifica
Our first matchup featured two beautiful entries - Flower Child vs. Pacifica.
This was our highest voted upon matchup thus far, and the race was neck and neck the entire day.
In the end, Flower Child pulled out the win with a final score of 186 to 178.
Hint of Mint vs. Aurelia
Next, we saw Hint of Mint take on Aurelia.
I expected this would be a much closer result than it was, but you guys seemed to be drawn to Aurelia’s simplistic beauty.
The black stunner took the contest 244 votes to 62.
Starburst vs. All That
Our third matchup was made in the 90s. Starburst faced off against All That, giving us all of the neon 90s vibes.
In the end, Starburst won in a landslide, 242-53.
Feeling Dangerous vs. Thinga-ma-Jigger
Rounding out the West side of the bracket, we had Feeling Dangerous vs. Thinga-ma-Jigger.
Not surprising to most of us, the classic red, white and blue stylings of Thinga-ma-jigger took home with victory with an astounding 258 votes to 54.
Best Bottom Diapers Eastern Conference Round 1 Recap
Let’s head on over to the Eastern half of this year's bracket.
Mardi Gras vs. Jewels
Our first East matchup was a showdown between the richest, most luxurious colors on the bracket.
Mardi Gras started out strong but was no match for the rich beauty of Jewels.
Jewels was a clear winner with a final score of 168 to 89.
Highlight vs. Paw Print
It seems with our next matchup, you guys had to sit down in your thinking chairs and think, think, think.
At the end of the day, all of that thinking resulted in Highlight pulling out a stellar victory 199-149.
That was a fun one to watch.
Hug Time vs. Bloom
In the matchup that showed us two of the most feminine and beautiful entries of the year, we had Hug Time and Bloom.
I really thought that the unique Magenta and Navy styling of Bloom would pull off the win, but alas, it seems the masses are more drawn to the poppin nature of Hug Time with her bold purple, magenta, and emerald.
Hug Time was the clear winner with 200 votes versus 112 votes.
Gingy vs. Buttercream
And finally, we got back to basics with Gingy vs. Buttercream.
This one was a HUGE toss-up initially. Would the fashion trends of blacks and camels reign supreme, or would classic ivory slide to victory?
At the end of this highly contested battle, we saw Gingy take home the win 157 to 144.
