Yeah, I sort of took an unannounced break.
Holidays, parents, a dozen good books, and a zillion thoughts on where I’m going and the blog is headed – it all got jumbled together and turned into a break.
But I’m back, and I’ve come to a few conclusions.
I don’t want to be a bra blogger and I’m completely unsuited for the job.
Let’s be honest here, I’m next to impossible to fit into a bra – and when a bra is a close fit, it requires alterations to transform the poor thing into a ‘good fit’ (which I can’t do, because I can’t even sew on a button). Frankly, if I didn’t need bras, I’d give up the whole bra shopping experience. Bras are not my thing.
I have different addictions than other bra bloggers. Most bra bloggers have the traditional lingerie addictions – bras, panties, negliges, corsets…. But I have an addiction to sleepwear, loungewear and camisoles. I mean really…I could shop for loungewear and camisoles every day. I have wandered through lingerie departments for hours – piles of robes, tops, bottoms and camisoles in my arms….blissful.
Despite my boulder holder challenges, I do have a few things to add to the bra conversation. First, since I must try on every bra on the market in an attempt to find one that fits my odd shape, I have an unending supply of commentary and reviews. Second, I have a sneaking suspicion I am not a totally unique shape – despite being high set, short waisted, close set and wide based… So I’ll keep jotting down opinions on the bras I try. Why not? Maybe I’ll help someone. I hope so.
But expect to hear more about other things. Like sleepwear, loungewear, camisoles and clothes…. and the weirdness of size charts, and life as a 40+ Inbetweenie. And let’s not forget Autoimmune diseases and how that can affect clothing and lingerie choices.
Yeah, I’m back – with a slightly different perspective.
