I was wondering if you had any advice for eco-friendly period management?
Namely I’m talking about special underwear you wear when you have your period or the cotton “pads” that you wash and reuse. I’ve seen a few ads but I have no idea where to start or good brands.
I know the anger and depression that large breasts, and especially breasts in ill-fitting bras, can bring. I remember my teenage years with ill-fitting bras, and the shame I felt for myself and my breasts. After I found my right bra size, I was so happy with how my life improved that I decided to get trained as a bra fitter. And I want to help you find your correct bra size too!
Can I share something a little personal with you? My boobs aren’t “perfect.” They are healthy and reliable. I nursed my two children with them. They have always been there when I needed them. But, I have had an adversarial relationship with bras. Nothing ever fit quite right — even after several professional bra fittings.
Victoria secret keeps flashing in my facebook feed, and as much as I appreciate a hungry-looking butt feasting on thongs, that look is not for me. But I also want to look good in and like my underwear at the same time. Fruit of the Loom’s cheap enormous cotton panties (*though I love me some natural fibres) are not cutting it. Help? Be my magical undie-god-mothers?
It began to get to the point where every single time I was anywhere near Victoria’s Secret, I had to buy the 5 pairs for $27 deal. It isn’t a bad price, until you end up with over a hundred pairs of underwear. So why, oh why, do I love buying new underwear so much?
Call me a prude, but I really can’t stand it when my bra strap starts to wander, letting the world know just what color and condition said bra is in. (Answer: generally not great.) In fact, it drives me nuts. I don’t want to have to constantly be adjusting and digging around. It’s just not… dignified.
Over on Offbeat Bride we’re talking about boobs! I’m a 32DD, which means I am a petite chick with a mighty big rack, which means that bra shopping pretty much sucks. I shared some of my undergarment tips for those of us who can’t buy off-the-rack sizes, wanna join the conversation and leave some tips of your own?
I’m going to need a new wardrobe and I’m sure I’ll be dropping off a lot of stuff at charity shops. But… can I do that with bras? Would you buy a second hand booby wrangler? What do you do with bras that are okay, but just don’t fit you anymore?
