I haven’t posted in a while now, partially because my time has been filled with all things baby, but also partially because there is not much to share. Until recently! Now I’ve got some more great bra things to share, and hopefully some progress on breastfeeding, insufficient glandular tissue, and implants. Most of my focus …

The Fitting Touch- my first true professional fitting

Along with the majority of women across the US I have never had a real bra fitting, until recently. I have been fit in places that tried tout me in the wrong size, places that use the plus four method (or even plus six!), places where the “fitter” did not actually do anything to fit. …

Review~ 2wenty8 Loren

Some of you may know that I have been every excited for an order that I placed with The Big Bra Bar. Unfortunately it took forever to get here! It was dispatched right away, but international mail is unreliable. On average it takes 2-3 weeks for an international order to get to me, but this …
