Big-busted ladies rejoice! This year’s Lingerie Fashion Week concluded with intimates for every size. Affinitas and Parfait carry hard to find bra sizes like 28D and 40K, along with flirty panties in sizes XS to XXL. Why limit yourself to full coverage bras when Affinitas’ and Parfait offer balconette and plunge-styles? Finally!

Last week, while contemplating the tattered, limp tangle of spandex and bent underwires that composed my current sports bra collection, I knew it was time to bite the bullet and go shopping for a new one. I have DD boobs, recently started jogging again, and these worn out bras just weren’t cutting it anymore.
For the past few years, I’d been pretty happy with my Moving Comfort Maia bra, which has an underwire and is very supportive. But somewhere along the way, the underwire got tweaked or my boobs changed shape or something, because the wires started digging into my skin on long runs. Like, sometimes I would take it off and have puncture wounds on my boobs. Totally traumatizing. I decided to explore some different styles from the Moving Comfort brand, hoping to find an equally supportive style with no underwire, and I found it: the Fiona sports bra. Here’s why it’s awesome.

Remember when I bought a pack of Freedom Bras last year and gave them a hesitantly positive review? That was before I tried the Genie Bra, which led me to throw out all my Freedom Bras and rescind my hesitantly positive review.
Freedom Bras were like the guy who isn’t great but isn’t horrible, so you casually date him for like 3 years but secretly wish he’d give you more support and also you’re a little nervous to be seen in public with him. Genie Bras are like that amazing relationship you thought only existed in fairytales, where the guy fits you perfectly, gives you constant support, and even sufficiently covers your nipples for trips to the grocery store. Sorry, I got confused by my own analogy, but what I’m trying to say is, the Genie Bra is the real deal. Keep reading »
I have big boobs. I’ve always had big boobs. As I’ve mentioned before, there are a lot of reasons big boobs are awesome. There are also a lot of reasons big boobs are kind of a pain. For example, every time I fall in love with a cute dress, only to realize that, due to super thin straps or strategically placed cutouts, there’s no way I can wear a bra with it. Sigh. Back on the rack it goes. From ill-fitting clothing to crowded subway cars, click through for eight natural enemies of big boobs and the blessed/cursed women who have them…
Big boobs are a blessing and a curse … mostly a curse, or so I hear. Which is why this full-body pillow called ComfyBreasts is utterly intriguing. It’s a regular full-body pillow with a section cut out for the breasts to rest. A well-endowed lady can lie face down for sleep, massages or even chiropractor appointments without painfully squishing her goods. Fantastic right? Our resident busty girl Winona is already finagling a way to buy one, so she can take a really, really long nap. [InventorSpot]
Every week, I get an email from Groupon Goods offering me a selection of deeply discounted products like earbuds and yoga mats and wine stoppers. I really need to unsubscribe from this email, because it’s turning me into one of those tragic women who goes into massive debt buying crap from the Home Shopping Network and is eventually buried in an avalanche of collectible teddy bears, but whatever. A few weeks ago my Groupon Goods email included a 3-pack of “Freedom Bras,” and I was instantly intrigued… Keep reading »
I’ve written before about the pros and cons of big boobs, so I’m really excited to see Busty Girl Comics illustrate the plight of busty girls so perfectly. Large breasts may be sexy, but trust me, they also make simple activities — like walking down stairs, washing dishes, or even crossing your arms — a lot more complicated. Click through for a few examples that made me laugh out loud, and check out the Busty Girl website for more… [via Buzzfeed]
I read Kate Fridkis’ recent essay about small boobs with a mix of fascination and envy. As someone who’s had double Ds since junior high, the small boob experience is totally foreign to me, although I’ve wished for smaller boobs on many occasions. Large breasts are idolized in pop culture, but the experience of actually walking around with two watermelons attached to your chest? Well, sometimes it’s awesome, and sometimes it’s decidedly not awesome. Here’s why… Keep reading »
