Ashley Graham Rocks the Red Carpet

Do you know Ashley Graham? Well,not technically 'know her, know her'. I mean know who she is.

She recently made history by becoming the first plus size model on the cover of Sports Illustrated.See....

Beautiful Right? We could practically be twins! (Minus the hair, eyes, lips, nose, skin, smile, ears, eyebrows etc. But we've both got curves!! that's got to count for something, right?!)

Well, last night at the Oscars she opened up to the challenge that all of us know so well. How hard it is to find a dress that fits our curves.
Now, some might argue that her dress doesn't actually 'fit' her curves. She's kind of bustin out everywhere. Quite honestly it kind of looks like all her buttons gave out at once. My nightmare come to life on the red carpet!
Wardrobe-Malfunctionesque First Impression aside. I thought she wore it perfectly. It truly fits like a glove.

And was nice to hear a celebrity reaffirm that big busted ladies struggle finding dresses that fit, whether they're going to oscars or to church. Maybe clothing designers will start to take note!

A boob friendly guitar!

Do you want to hear something funny... I initially titled this post, "Now You Can Play a Guitar With Boobs!" Which isn't only semantically backwards, but conjures up all sorts of messed up mental imagery.

I don't play the guitar by any stretch of the imagination, but I have picked one up and figured out a few chords. In my very limited exposure to guitars I found that there just wasn't a comfortable way to nestle the guitar close to your body if you're large chested. Not saying it's impossible. Just saying it was awkward for me.

I'm not sure if there are any hard rockers out there reading my blog. If you are, then you're probably a fan of female guitarist Annie Clark, known as St. Vincent. If you're not familiar let me introduce you to her. Ladies and Gentlemen! St. Vincent....

Man, her life is like a 180 from mine. The craziest thing I've done so far today is microwaved a frozen package of ground turkey that had metal clips on the ends. Then I fist pumped when it didn't start my microwave on fire.

So anyways St. Vincent is a musical genius AND a guitar designer. Her new guitar is specifically designed for women (or small framed people).
I don't think she started out with the intentions of making a guitar that is labeled 'breast friendly'. I think it just kind of happened because she set out to make a guitar that fits women better and women have boobs.

The new guitar only weighs 7 pounds and has a smaller 'footprint' making it easier for smaller hands to hold and play. Clark herself said in an interview with Guitar World that she was glad a guitar existed that was sympathetic to the female form.

On her instagram feed she posted this....
Her description is a little blurry. It says, "I wanted to design a tool that would be ergonomic, lightweight, and sleek... There is room for a breast or two."

And that pretty much sums it all up.

Rock on Annie Clark! If I played the guitar I would love to try out one of your beautiful creations, but since I don't I'm thinking of ordering me one of these babies....
Yep. That's an edible guitar made out of a tortilla chip. That's what I'm talking about! After shredding it on stage I'm going to smash it to pieces and bring out some salsa and guac. Party!!

A Big Bust....Literally!

How could I not comment on a news story of this magnitude?!

This weekend, news broke of a 'big bust' by Australian police. Apparently 'bra stuffing' has graduated from middle school Kleenex to high end methamphetamine.

Police found 190 liters of liquid meth disguised as gel bra inserts (You know, the squishy things women put inside their bras to make their boobs look bigger) The drug filled inserts look like this...

190 Liters!!! That is a bustload of meth, just over 60 gallons! For comparison a small bathtub holds about 40 gallons.

I've been doing a little research into liquid meth (can't wait to see what google/amazon ads auto-populate on my computer tomorrow) and from what I've read 60 gallons of liquid meth is ALOT of meth. Just to put it in perspective. Last year a 16 year old boy took a small sip of liquid meth to try and convince a border agent that it was apple juice. He was dead within an hour. Just a sip. This is some potent poison! And it's expensive! I read another news article about a drug bust in New York. Police arrested a woman with 16 oz of liquid meth in a water bottle. It was valued at $45,000. 16 OUNCES. So you can imagine how much 60 Gallons is worth. Police estimate that this latest Methfilled Bra Bust has a street value of almost 1 Billion dollars. That's crazy! No wonder people are willing to go to such extreme measures to transport it and sell it.

Sorry to go off on a tangent. I starting writing this post to comment on the hilarity of criminals stuffing drugs in bra inserts and then getting 'busted' for it, but in reality this story just goes to show that drugs are more deadly than ever and there is no end to the means that evil men will go to get them into the hands of addicts. Don't do drugs! (And don't stuff your bras!)

Movies without Boobies, Bad Words, or Blood???!!

You know me. I'm not shy around big boobs. Heck, they pretty much consume my day (obviously ;). I spend hours looking at bras, funny breast memes, and mammary related news articles.

But that doesn't mean I like having my young daughters (and even myself and my husband ;) bombarded with some of the 'stuff' that comes out of Hollywood.

Don't get me wrong, there are a TON of great movies out there, sometimes I just wish there wasn't 55 'f-words', frontal nudity, old men's butts and decapitation in one 2 hour movie.

I'll make this quick.

There is a new video streaming company out there called VidAngel is kind of like Netflix, but they provide filters for movies.

It basically gives you a magical, digital 'remote' that allows you to bleep, or skip things you might find inappropriate.

It's super easy to use and costs the same as a RedBox.

VidAngel doesn't break copyright laws because technically you buy each digital movie. You own it. After you watch it you can decide to 'sell it back' (within 24 hours) for a credit on your account. Then you can use that credit to 'buy' another movie.

It's free to sign up for VidAngel and it only costs $2 to watch a movie in HD or $1 to watch a movie in SD (if you 'return' it within 24 hours)

This video explains how the credits work...

Anyways. I love finding products like this because it makes my life better! Just thought I'd pass along the info. If you want to learn more about VidAngel click here!

It's Octboober!!

Yeah, I made that word up. I don't even know how to pronounce it.

Octboober is basically the love child of the words October and boob. And if you say Octboober fast and with a funny accent it actually works.

The sole purpose of the nonsensical word 'Octboober' is to remind you that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Today I was reading an article on the Huffington Post from 2012 about the possible link between breast size and breast cancer. There hasn't been any finite connections yet, but scientists think they have identified 7 gene markers that they believe determine breast size and 3 of those markers are linked to breast cancer. Which doesn't prove anything, they're still working on it. HOWEVER scientists and doctors DO KNOW that women (and men) with dense breasts have a significantly higher rate of breast cancer.

So....If you're over 40 get a mammogram scheduled. If you have a history of breast cancer in your family get a mammogram scheduled. If you feel something 'weird' in your boobs, get a mammogram scheduled. At the very least talk to your doctor.

What is a Good Body?

If someone came up to you and asked the question, "What is a good body?" how would you answer? Buzzfeed recently did just that and compiled the responses below.

My answer?

The person with a good body is the person that uses their body for good.

A good body will uplift and strengthen. A good body is a smile to the friendless and a hand up to the fallen, a shoulder to cry on and a strong back to the weary. A good body is a compassionate heart, an open mind, and a giving spirit. A good body humbly heals itself and overlooks the scars on others because a good body recognizes that no body is perfect.

A good body is your body because without it you would gone. So cherish your body, love your body, and give thanks for your body. Everything good in this world was done by some body, a good, beautiful, happy, strong some body.

You don't have a good body, you are a good body.

Maxine's Always good for a laugh

I saw this Halloween card on clearance at Walmart last week (because, you know, it's September and they have to make room for the Christmas cards...[Face Palm])

I must be getting old because I'm starting to relate to Maxine more and more.

My First World Problem!

Noooooo!! Noooooo!! Noooooo!!

People! I went on vacation last week and when I got home I couldn't find my very favorite bra!

You know, the bra I raved about recently, the one that cost over a hundred bucks, the bra I love the most out of all the bras I've ever bought in my entire life!?! That one! My prima donna bra!

I've looked everywhere!Through all my luggage, all my husband's luggage, all my daughters' luggage. Nothing.

The only thing I can think of is that it was tangled up in the bed sheets and I somehow over looked it. :(

I'm almost to depressed to function. What am I going to do? I loved that bra, almost as much as I love my smart phone (almost).

I considered calling the place where I stayed, but they have like a $100.00 fee for returning lost items or something insane like that!

So now, I have to decide. Do I buy a new bra? The same one? A cheaper one? Try a different bra that might be as good... or might not?

Oh fiddlesticks!!! I'm upset!

Pictures of my new Shirts!

I must ask for forgiveness. I was planning on getting pictures/reviews posted on Friday or Saturday, but I had about 377 things come up that changed my plans.

So fast forward to today and we actually left for our week long vacation this morning. Obviously, I didn't get my reviews written, but I couldn't leave you with nothing!! So I had my husband take a couple of photos of me wearing the 2 shirts I ordered from Pepperberry this morning before we left. (I'm posting this from the road)

I don't have time to do a full-blown review right now, but I will say that I LOVE THESE SHIRTS! I packed them and will be wearing them on vacation (with 70 of my family members). I'm sure to get feedback from them so I'll include everything in my review next weekend. Thanks for your patience!

Well. There you go! 2 great shirts that look great on gals with a big bust! Atleast in my opinion...and my husbands ;) And that's good enough for me.

They Came!! They Came!!

My shirts that I ordered from Bravissimo(PepperBerry) came today!

Of course I've tried them on already! And of course I ran out and bought new shorts to wear with them. ;) Can't wait to model them for you with a complete review! (Hopefully by Saturday)

Still Waiting..... And a couple more questions answered about the Prima Donna

It's been 3 weeks since I ordered my shirts from Pepperberry/Bravissimo. Haven't seen them yet, but I'm hopeful they'll be here soon!

The frustrating thing is my sister (who lives in California) ordered a shirt a couple days after me and got her's delivered last week. :(

So.... what have I been doing to pass the time while I wait for my shirts? (Besides trying to occupy my 3 girls who are home on summer break) I paint things of course! my front door.

If it looks like I'm standing funny it's because I'm trying to hold the door open with my foot. It was awkward.

I also spent the weekend planting flowers.
How awesome are these?!
I hope I don't kill them.

Well, that's what I've been up to for the last couple weeks. I sure hope my shirts hurry and come. My vacation is next week!!

Also, I got a couple more great questions via email regarding the Prima Donna Bra.
I LOVE your website {Ahhh, Thanks Angie!} and I just read your Prima Donna bra update post, thanks for that!

I was wondering, are those pads at the bottom corner of the bra in the picture you posted?

Also, can you see the bra through that green color shirt you were wearing? I was curious to see how the bra looked underneath the shirt, would you be able to post a picture of that? I just want to see if any of the fabric can be seen or any of the lace.

Thank you so much!!!!

It took me a couple days, but I finally got around to answering her....

First Question: Is it padded?
Anwer: Nope, not at all. The cup portion (below the lace) is double lined with fabric, but there is zero padding whatsoever.

2nd Question: Can you see the bra through the green shirt you were wearing?

Before I answer this I need to tell you that the green shirt I was wearing is honestly like the thinnest shirt ever. It's one of those workout shirts made out of stretchy, drapey, silky feeling material that shows every hump, bump, and nipple ;).

So the short answer is Yes. You can see the lace on this bra through my green shirt. Here's a picture to show you what I mean.

But, you can only see the lace through a shirt if it's made out of thin material. I wear this bra everyday and never really had a problem with it.

In fact, one of the perks of this bra is that because of where my nipples lay (right on the seam between the fabric and lace) I rarely get the 'peekaboo' effect. I guess the seam helps to protect them or hide them I don't know, but it's been great!

Thanks again Angie for the questions! Hope this helps!

Prima Donna Bra Update!

I got a great email this weekend from a lady named Erin. She had just read my Prima Donna Bra Review and wanted to know how it was holding up for me. Here's her email....

Just a question - just read your review on the Prima Donna and am wondering how it held up for you.

I also am a 34DDDD and am in the process of rejuvenating my bra collection. I had an Empreinte a few years back (I paid $125) but those are now ($190). If I could rob a bank I would get another in a heartbeat.

I have never owned or tried a Prima Donna. I've been getting my bras from Nordstrom or Nord. They work while I pay the rent, but am considering adding one "workhorse" to supplement some less expensive options.
Today I'd like to answer Erin's email and give her (and all of you) an update on my Prima Donna Bra.

I wear my Prima Donna Bra almost every day. In fact I'm wearing it right now....

Background....I ordered this bra back in October (I think) so I've had it for 7 months. And..... I've pretty much worn it every day since then. (minus washings and workouts of course ;)


It still holds its shape perfectly. There have been no stitches come undone. The lace cups are perfect for fluctuating breast size (which happens about once a month ;) It is extremely comfortable. I will buy this bra again! And I am totally comfortable recommending this bra to any of you out there.

I know this update is sounding all sunshine and roses, but I honestly can't think of anything bad to say about this bra. The straps don't slip. The fabric is holding up just fine and it still fits me like the 1st day I wore it.

It has been worth every penny.

Sidenote: I hand wash my bra with mild detergent and hang it to dry in my bathroom. I'm not morally opposed to machine washing my bras, but I have a very aggressive washing machine and I'm afraid it might be a little rough on my 'delicates'.

Also, it's important to air dry or dry your bra on low heat. This protects the elastic in the bra from melting and loosing it's stretch. That would be sad. :(

So Erin, long story short....I'm still wearing my Prima Donna Bra nearly everyday and I love it! If you're looking for a 'workhorse' as you put it, this bra is it!

Oh Boy. Last Day of School......

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my girls. Do you have any idea what this does to my 'work from home' schedule?

Shoots it right to heck! That's what!

It's going to take me a few weeks to get into our 'summer routine' but I promise to post here 2-3 times a week.

My big bust shirts have shipped and I promise to take a picture when they get here!

Voting Is Closed!

See The Winners!

This was survey so much fun! Call me a loser or a simpleton or whatever, but watching the votes come in for the shirts I should buy was WAY more fun than I thought it would be.

It was a nail bitter to the very end!!

So without further are the results! (keep in mind that there were 2 separate polls (1 for your top choice and 1 for your 2nd choice, so that's why the percentages are different)

It was a super close race with only a few votes separating each shirt! I didn't vote, but I was secretly hoping that the Red Polka Dot and Blue Striped shirt would win so I'm a happy camper (although I thought they were all cute and wished I could buy all of them).

I've already ordered both the winning shirts from Bravissimo and in a couple days I'll write up a page on how I determined what sizes to order from Bravissimo and what it is like to order from an overseas company. Both new experiences for me!

The shirts should be here in about 2+ weeks. Which seems like forever, but considering they're shipping from the UK I guess it's not terrible. Amazon Prime has spoiled me with their ridiculously fast delivery so now everything else seems like it takes FOREVER to get here! ;)

If you want to learn more about all of these shirts go to my big bust shirt's page.

Thanks for voting everyone! Check back soon for new blog posts and new webpages, including a detailed review of both of these shirts!

Help Me Choose What Shirt To Buy!

So....exciting day today!

I'm going to order a couple of big bust shirts from Bravissimo, but I can't decide which ones to get!

Do you want to help me choose?

Come on! You know you want to! There's nothing more fun than shopping with other people's money ;)

Here are the shirts I'm considering....

Aren't they cute!?

Bravissimo sells clothes that are designed for busty gals. They're based in the UK and I haven't ordered anything from them yet, but I will next week! And of course, I'll write up an in-depth review on whatever I order! So check back soon!

I have set up a survey over on my shirt page. Click the "Continue Reading...." link below to go vote on your favorite 2!!!

Curvy Kate Mocks Victoria Secret's 'Perfect Body'

Last year Victoria Secret released their "Perfect Body" lingerie line. And it caused OUTRAGE!


Well obviously the intended (or unintended) message was that the perfect body looked like a Victoria Secret model.

Which clearly isn't true!

In my opinion the perfect body is one that is clean, taken care of, cherished, and allows us to experience life.

Those qualifiers skyrocket the number of 'perfect' bodies out there. Most of us have perfect bodies! Did you know that? You have a perfect body! I have a perfect body! How awesome is that?!

Now other companies are hitting back at the 'VS' Perfect Body campaign and hitting back hard.

I posted last month about the "I'm no Angel" advertisement from Lane Bryant. Now, Curvy Kate is throwing a punch with it's new motto, "Every Body is Beautiful". And they're releasing Ads that are eerily similar to the one from Victoria Secret last year.

Take a Look.....1st at the Victoria Ad

And Now for Curvy Kate's

Some people are pointing out that Curvy Kate's ad is just as exclusive as Victoria Secret's, complaining that there are no 'small busted' ladies or athletically built girls. Only Big Busted girls. I can see their point, but Curvy Kate sells bras specifically to ladies size D-G. That's who they are marketing to! Soooooo, That's why there are big breasted women in their ad.

BTW if you're interested in Checking out bras and lingerie from Curvy Kate you can find their bras on herroom.comicon.

Now, go out and do something awesome with that perfect, beautiful body of yours ;)
