How did Yarlap get its name?

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall with all of the pumpkins, apple ciders and luscious apples on market stands. YUM! According to some décor opinions (mine not included), drawing a smiley face on a pumpkin and naming her “Sue” does not cut it as normal OR accepted Halloween decorations by the doyennes of holiday style (see photo below). I personally have the upper body strength of a stick bug, so my carving this pumpkin is absolutely out of the question!

Today I thought I would answer the most frequently asked question I get about Yarlap which is … “How did Yarlap get its name?”

Seriously, this has been the #1 question I hear from people all the time. Yes, it is an odd name. So, wonder no more.

The “Yar” comes from a long time sailing term that means “fit, trim, or in shape”.

The “Lap” is discreetly referencing “lady parts”.

Ergo … Fit, trim, in shape + Lady Parts = Yarlap Voíla!

Which is quite fitting actually, because that is exactly what the Yarlap System does. It allows a woman to use it discreetly in the privacy of her own home to gain control of and maintain continence which equals “Freedom” from the “wee” worry.
