I used to look forward to getting new clothes in the mail, but now I'm looking forward to my new bra purchases...wahoo!
All bra adventures
Today I went to Norstrom to look at bras in my size. All they had was the Deco in 30F, which turned out to fit magnificently, a Cleo Jude in 30G, which also fit well, but didn't give me the amazing shape that the Deco did, and a Panache Porcelain, which was maybe a size too small, and gave me an elf-shoe look when I straightened my posture.
People who shorten bra straps permanently, please state it when you're selling a used bra. Also, if you bought a used bra with altered straps and you resell it, mention that the straps aren't as long as they normally are in that model.
Some of us need shorter straps, but some of us need all that length!
Also, I'm wondering if it's really a good idea to shorten straps permanently when you're not sure if you're going to keep the bra or resell it.
Trying to find a size, I've given up on it. Trying to find bras that fits, I've given up on that too. Sometimes I do think that fitting advise on bras caters to young women with not that much flesh on them.
Bra fitting for a 39 year old fat woman who's been wearing the wrong bras all her life is another story completely.
Bra nightmares wrote the best post about bra fitting for the overweight.

Last night I installed the Bra adventures!
Let's see how these work out, they are just one piece in a bigger set of changes coming to the site

It's really hot here (>32°C, 90°F), so I tried out my new awesome Panache Sports bra in the cooler morning hours. It seemed sort of too big at first, but totally inhibited bounce. Really nice!
(Not sure about the hand wash part though? The Shock Absorber B4490 is machine washable and I always supposed this was a good characteristic for a sports bra... We'll see about that.)
