Can we be intimate for a minute? I know we can, just me and my dear, most dearest internets. I want to talk about bras, no really I do. Buying bras is a traumatic thing, sorta like the bathing suit horror, for me. I am an average buxom lady with curves. Now my size does not mean my shoulders are as big as a Texans football player, yet manufactures think this. For a bra to be supporting the straps should line up with your nipples go over your shoulder and end at/just below your shoulder blade; Because the nipples are the center point for the heaviest part of your breast and therefore the best location for support. Now I have never, ever bought an over the counter bra that actually had the straps in the right place for me. They seem to always be too far over to the outside. And I don’t know about you, but I cannot afford to buy custom made, hell the over the counter ones cost enough.
Anyhows to combat the issue when I buy new ones…BTW I only like the seamless cups, cotton (or as high a cotton content I can get, adjustable straps and if at all possible the ones that hook in the front (as if I could find any) and because I’m curvy I do the underwire. Now back to the alteration, yes I alter my bras. I cut the strap, one at a time (less confusing) and move it about a half inch or so towards the hook part and sew it back on. Now if you choose to try this, do be sure and not twist the strap, cause that makes it feel really weird. I make little stitches using a like colored thread and go back and forth at least 3 times. Well I don’t want ‘em coming loose, cause that would just be dangerous. Surprise and low and behold I don’t suffer from falling/slipping straps anymore and they don’t hang out from tank tops looking all 70s and junk. And this keeps me perky.
Jannie the Funster does and fling them away. The bra not the boulders. Duh!
Any intimate tips you would like to share with our fellow dear internets?
