The Bra Band Project for 30 bands & below
Are you a 30 band or below? Do you have problems finding your bra size? Did you know that some big name companies think that your size either does not exist, that only a junior could wear your band size, or that there is no market for 30 bands and below? Well, please join us to speak out for your bra needs. Braless in Brasil, Boosaurus, Bras I Hate, StackDD, and myself are working together to start the Bra Band Project!
Here’s the story:
Recently at the Curve Expos in both, New York and Las Vegas, brands that cater to large-busted women suggested that 30 bands and under were either for juniors, or that there was no market for them. However, that is simply not the case, there are many women out there who need 30 bands and under and we are not all juniors. While we come in all different shapes and sizes, we all have a small back size in common.
To prove that we are not all juniors and that we exist as a market we have decided to create the Bra Band Project where we are looking for photos of women who wear 30 bands or under. We will make a flickr album and eventually a collage with our photos to show that we are not just juniors but women of all shapes and sizes that need small bands. We’d love your help so please submit your own photo and band size using the form below or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note we need both your bra size and your photo. We cannot include a submission without both of those. If you are a blogger who would like to help out with this project email us at email@example.com.
You can stay completely anonymous! There is no need to show your face. You can share pictures from the waist to neck, full body, in a bra, in plain unrecognizable clothing, however you are comfortable. Personally, I used a photo you can find here on my blog. Just be sure to include your bra size with your photo!
This project is for to collect images of 30 bands and below to show other women (and manufacturers) out there that they could be in a band size that is much too large. An underbust study conducted by Braless in Brasil shows some startling statistics about women and how many actually need a 30 band or below. Could you be one of these women? Could you need a 30 or below and not realize it? Check out the calculators at Butterfly Collection or A Sophisticated Pair to double check your size. A calculator is only a starting point, but you may be surprised!
