I guess lingerie makes me a bona fide Shame Club member.  But frankly if anyone should be ashamed it's those doofy-looking shirtless smoking dudes.

Good Girl

So, it’s been a fun couple of weeks, right? A lady on the internet told us all about how she sits down with her teenage sons to teach them how to judge their female peers’ Facebook pictures, and she implied that said teenage hussies were directly responsible for her sons’ moral weaknesses. I read several blog […] Read more…

Us Beautiful People

The fabulous Bras and Body Image shared this lovely post on Facebook this week: Obviously I love this.  I kind of squealed in delight. I am also being 100% serious when I say that this simple, cheerful, polite, utterly badass response to common, run-of-the-mill trolling kind of rocked my world. Last week I was having some […] Read more…

The Perils of Ice Cream Socials

[Possible Trigger Warning– I’ll be discussing relationships with food, very cursorily and probably superficially.] It was Staff Appreciation Week at my office last week, and I can’t lie: I generally feel super-appreciated each year.  Last year they hosted a cupcake-decorating class (still the best frosting job I’ve ever managed); this year they kicked things off with […] Read more…

What Do I Call These Things?

I tend to say “boobs” a lot. I mean, not ALL THE TIME, jeez. I’m not parading around the office blathering on about boobs and underwires and bra manufacturers, or anything. But when the topic does come up, my word of choice, especially with my peers, is boobs. “Breasts” can feel clinical or medical, even […] Read more…

"Tanzania Stripe" bra by Bravissimo, a new demi/half-cup (ish) style available in sizes 28-38 DD-HH.

Sweet Talking: Phoenix

Today’s Awesome Lady is Phoenix, who’s quite literally been a loyal reader since Day 1.  We went to the same high school, appeared together in a production of a Stephen Sondheim musical that I, at least, had no business being in, sang in the school choir together, and generally made it out alive.  Phoenix works […] Read more…

Busty Girl Comics illustrates the competitive mindset for us.  How lovely are both of these women?  Very.

Congratulations, We All Win

Bra sizes are not a competition. I cringe when I see how quickly a comment thread on a “celebrity bra size” article or a bust-related post on Facebook can devolve into an “I have it worse than you” contest. An article will appear suggesting, say, some curve-friendly button-down shirts. Commenters will immediately chime in that they […] Read more…

Rant for a Monday

So the always-on-the-alert Georgina at Fuller Figure Fuller Bust recently brought a ground-breaking piece of investigative journalism to my attention (sarcasm alert).  Read it.  It’ll take you like 30 seconds, and probably only kill 5 brain cells. You’re back? Hoooooooooookay.  Y’all.  I’m trying to be calm and measured in my response to this.  But can […] Read more…
