What's the difference between a $25 bra, a $50 bra, and a $100 bra?

I'm not sure, but I'm hanker'n to find out!

I ordered 3 seamless bras today. They won't be here until next week, but I'll have all the details for you ASAP!

Here are the bras I ordered...

Here are the links if you want to check them out on herroom...
Olga Signature Support Satin Underwire - $25.20
Prima Donna Satin Seamless Underwire Bra - $105.00
Wacoal Basic Beauty Underwire Bra - $50.00

I've been through some different bra phases in my life.

There was the dirt poor bra phase when I honestly couldn't afford a $25 dollar bra and mere fact that $100 bras existed was an insult to humanity.

Then there was a 'what's the best bra for cheapest price?' phase. I went through this phase when I had a little more wiggle room in the budget and could afford to pay for a slightly more expensive bra, IF it meant the quality was noticeably better.

The final phase is the 'I'm willing to pay whatever for the best bra possible.'phase. Now, of course this doesn't mean I'm buying bras dipped in gold and encrusted with diamonds (those bras are insanely uncomfortable ;) but it does mean that I'm able and willing to buy a $100 bra if the workmanship, support, and material is top notch.

So, I picked these 3 bras as a representation of my 'bra phases'. How will they compare to each other? Am I wasting $75 buying a $105 bra when a $25 bra works just as well? (I'd be surprised, but crazier things have happened.) Or is it best to split the difference and go with the middle of the road $50 bra? That's probably what my mother would say.

Am I the only one who has experienced these different bra phases?

I know some teenagers/young adults go through the "I'm only wearing cute/sexy bras" phase. Unfortunately for me, there was literally one bra in the entire store that would fit me in high school and it was the epitamy of a grandma bra. In fact, there was a 50 year old lady on the box, or atleast she looked 50 years old to my 16 year old self. Such were the struggles of pre-internet life when you lived in a town with one clothing department store.

So I was kind of robbed of my 'I'm only wearing cute/sexy bras' phase due to circumstances beyond my control. Back in the 90's I was convinced I was doomed to a lifetime of giant, ugly, white practical bras. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I could have access to hundreds of beautiful big busted bras that would fit me! Hence my online bra shopping addiction.

Anyho, this post kind of turned into stroll down memory bra lane. Long story short, I ordered 3 more bras to try. I'll keep you posted.

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.
