The three part bra cup & Bra Fittings!

Just a note that this Saturday March 25, I will be doing bra fittings at Amour in the East Village, from 2 to 5. Stop in, get fitted, ask questions, and check out the great inventory. It will be so much fun!

(This is just an icon, not an actual 3 part cup bra)

If you have not yet tried a bra with a three part cup construction, let me be the first to introduce you. They are amazing. I don't care what brand, I think it's a key component to a good cup fit. It's a simple enough idea - the more parts to your cup, the more easily the material can be shaped. I also think that a 3 part cup provides extra support that seamless soft cup bras just do not have. I love a good molded cup bra, but the biggest draw back (or perk?) is that your boobs are poured into whatever shape that cup was molded into. A 3 part soft cup bra will enhance your natural shape instead of making your  boobs fit a mold. The top part of a 3 part bra is more forgiving and I think less likely to give you the quadra boob - at least less so than a molded cup bra. If you are a soft cup person, a three part cup will give you the shape you want. No more sad, saggy boobs. Trust me when I say that trying one of these on will change your life. I cried tears of joy when I tried one on for the first time and squealed "I'm so pretty!" in the dressing room.

What I'm into this week: 3/17/17


I'm still going through my dystopian literature phase, so I am re-reading Fahrenheit 451. It's not as dramatic as I remember, but it's still a book I find new things in every time I read it. I especially love that my yellowed, tattered, paperback copy has my notes from when I was in highschool. It's interesting to see what I found important back then, when I was just learning to think critically. There are so many parts of this book that resonate with me. The biggest thing being I am glad now more than ever that I cut the cord and stream everything. It's made me pickier about what I spend my time watching. I'm not trying to be a snob about it - there is definitely a time and place for mindless entertainment. It's when that mindlessness takes over all of your habits, like Mildred in this novel, that I have a problem with. If you haven't read Fahrenheit 451, please pick up a copy. It's a quick read and I think one of the most essential books in American literature.

The bras every woman should own

I have spent the last few weeks researching types of bras. There is a ton of helpful information out there already. Instead of rehashing what's already out there, I'm going to give you some helpful, educational links. Then I'll tell you which ones I think everyone should have in their bra wardrobe.
