For women only

I'm warning you right now, if you're a man you probably don't want to read this post. Seriously. I'm going to be talking about b*r*a*s. Then again, maybe every man on the internet will want to read this post. Anyway...

Continuing my image series, how do you choose the right brassiere for you? We've all seen women whose chests touch their waistband. And none of us wants to be that woman, right? Here are my favorite tips.
  • Get yourself professionally measured. Go someplace like VS or a department store and ask them to measure you. Many, many women out there are wearing the wrong size because they've never done this one simple thing.
  • Buy a new set of b*r*a*s every three months, just like your toothbrush. Buy enough that you can have some in the wash and have at least one clean one.
  • Why every three months? The materials of the garment are meant to support. Any material, no matter how nice, is going to stretch and break down over time. After three months, it's just not doing its job as well as it should be anymore.
  • The more support you have, the better. The tissue in your b*r*e*a*s*t*s is going to break down over time, causing that dreaded sagging. Good support will slow that process.
  • Get a nice, supportive and comfortable sports bra or something like that to sleep in. Again, the more you can do to slow the breakdown of tissue, the better.
  • While wearing your b*r*a, the b*r*e*a*s*t*s should peak halfway between the shoulder and the elbow. If not, you need a new one.
  • We all change size if we gain or lose weight. If you're using the set of hooks which are farthest out, it's time for the next larger size, even if the one you're wearing seems to fit.
Okay, I think that's all. Sorry for all the *s, but I do want to avoid some measure of perverts searching for such words! Happy shopping!


  1. Taking these measures to avoid perverts is acceptable. LOL. No problem ;)

    Thanks for the bra tips... I used to buy cheap ones at WalMart, but truly in the case of bras, you get what you pay for.... Now I buy them at Lane Bryant. I haven't found anything that fits better than their Cacique brand (which come to find out is made by the same quality people at Victoria's Secret.)

  2. Oh, I love Cacique! I didn't know they had them there - I'll have to check it out. I got some Cacique panties years ago that I still wear and love.

  3. I have to say that this is a post after my own heart! Bad bras (and nasty feet) are big peeves of mine and I sometimes think I could revolutionize the world if only people would let me teach them about buying the right bra!
