I have not been active in the bra community for a while (sorry to those who expected me to keep my promise of updating my blog)! Which gives me all the more stress now:
I have mentioned in an adventure earlier, that I am set to be in international make-over show, and anticipated the bra-part of the make-over as well. Especially after the hosts made an interview, saying they are so focused on finding the proper bras etc.
Disappointment! We do not get bra make-overs. We got a gift-card today (2 weeks before filming) for Prima Donna and Marie Jo, and were told to go and get measured at any of the listed stores: These stores are clearly only listed by the requirement that they stock these brands, not because they have qualified fitters.
I have had my share of being stuffed into these particular brands in these particular stores, and let me tell you, it doesn't count as a bra-make over, and the other participants of the show will not get 'the perfect foundation for a make over'.
It also really, really puts me in a pickle. I have to buy a new one (because they have payed me to do so), but there is no way I can portray it as an improved make-over when I change out of my Ewa Michalak bra in 34JJ into a Marie Jo in 36G.
I have written to the producers, begging for them to take the giftcard back, and let me buy from Bravissimo or Ewa Michalak instead, but with only 2 weeks notice, my choices are limited - I will have to get it right in the first go, and I can only choose bras in stock from Ewa Michalak.
The reason I have not been at bratabase or my blog in a while, is that I've been rather sick and tired of boob and bras causing trouble, so this really, really sucks to have to deal with now!
