- Zulily has changed my life. For those who aren't familiar, Zulily is a site that sells brand names for deeply discounted prices for products that are out of season and such. I finally was able to get my hands on some Kris Line bras through them at prices I could afford, and... wow. Kris Line, by far, makes my favorite bras. They normally retail for roughly $100, and I believe there is only one store in the U.S. that carries them. I'm regularly able to snag them on Zulily for roughly $50, and they fit better than anything else I've had in a long time. If Panache and Freya wires are too wide for you, yet Ewa Michalak wires are too narrow (their wires are just a touch narrow for me), Kris Line may be your solution. I recommend ordering a cup or two sizes higher than your standard/typical cup size. In Panache, I wear a 34HH. In Kris Line, I wear a 34JJ. I could probably go down to a 34J for my right boob, but lefty is obnoxious. Bottom line, they're comfortable, beautiful, and fit really well once you know how to order.
- I'm a bridesmaid for the first time, and being a bridesmaid has changed my perspective on weddings completely. I've been mentally preparing myself for the chance that I'll have to end up finding a strapless bra that fits, because that's just the way life goes. I'm going to have a wedding post sometime soon, mainly because it's going to be fun! I did have the hilarious experience of trying on sample-size bridesmaid dresses and seeing how differently they fit on me than they were designed to fit! You gotta be able to laugh at yourself, I say.
- I just ordered a dress from Lady Voluptuous, the dress line designed by Georgina of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust fame. I'll let you know what I think once my dress gets here!
I wish I could say my last several months have been more exciting in a lingerie/fashion sense, but I've just been plugging away at work. Hopefully, I'll be making more time to blog in the near future!
P.S. -- Yes, I'm still aware that I'm not thin. :) And guess what? It's okay that I'm not thin! Woo! Go team! Party! Body positivity all the way!
Hi, Laura. Is this your blog now or will Brittany be back anytime? Is she okay?ReplyDelete
