Tuesday tip: A trip down mammary lane!
Ha! Sorry about the title... I couldn't help myself.
FIRSTLY: Do check out the fun interview I did for Lauren of Glossary Zine, here!
Secondly: I also did one for the lovely Fritha Louise of The Fish Tank the other day, here!
Apologies for the delay of today's tip. I came down really headachey at about lunchtime and haven't been able to focus properly. I think I might need to get my eyes tested because I am getting constant headaches at the moment.
Anyway. Alex was the adjudicator of today's tip. I showed him it this morning and he agreed it definitely worked, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to convey in photographs... So I'll post it anyway for you to try IRL, if you think it's useful.
This tip is mainly for the boobalicious lady. It may be common knowledge to some of you, but I only really noticed the difference a couple of months ago. Basically, the longer your necklace, the less prominent your boobs look. I find a pendant necklace seems to make everything look more in proportion, whereas a short necklace only emphasises the gap between it and the boobs, creating a slightly saggy optical illusion and making the boobs the main focus, as they look rather shelf-like!
I don't think the difference is too obvious in these pictures. And due to the slightly different angle, my boobs actually look saggier in the second pic! FML! But I guess with the second picture the boobs aren't so 'HIYA'! And that is the whole point!
It's not the strongest Tues tip I've shown you, but I tried my very breast under the circumstances. Ha! And don't go thinking I've hit a wall, I've got PLENTY of awesome tips lined up, but I just wasn't up to it today.
♥ Whilst we're on the topic of all things boobular, next time you're bra shopping, DO ask the advice of one of the bra specialists! I was in Debenhams the other week, and thought I was in complete control of my bra needs. I merely asked a lady to check the stock room for the next size up in this bra, and she quite literally hijacked my breasts. I felt a bit uncomfortable at the time, and kind of wanted her to bugger off because I knew my size etc, but I'm glad she didn't.
She took over and brought me some new bras to try on. They looked about the size of my head , but I thought I'd try them on and humour her. I could always buy them and return them the next day to save her feelings...But sure enough, I put one on and after some strap adjusting I was hoiked in and ready to go! I couldn't believe how perfectly the bra fit me, considering it looked like some sort of cutting edge siamese-twin headgear design! It really taught me not to judge a bra by its [gigantic] cover. I'm not sure whether it's TMI to discuss which sizes we're talking here, but let's just say I when I entered the store I was Drastically Delusional, and when I left I was Flabbergasted..!
I bought a couple of bras and have never felt so supported in my life! It's really put a spring in my step knowing I can walk at a pace and not be putting on a tantalising jiggle-show for the pervy Ladz of Canterbury. The lady was telling me that if we don't support our boobs while we're young, you will see sagging while you're still in your twenties!!! So this tip is a MUST! A must for your bust!!
I've clearly gone insane, which tells me it's bed time! Off to London tomorrow, and will be back with pictures of purchases (and anything interesting from the Debenhams press show) tomorrow night!
Bon soir! ♥
