"This Year My Breasts Will Not Sag"

Here is a great idea on how to take better care of your bras. I DO agree that all women should have a bra fitting done by a professional. I DON'T think all women should purchase their bras at Victoria's Secret. I think they discriminate against smaller breasted women. 80% of their styles don't even come in an A cup! How rude!


  • LOVE Kage's comment on that site. Ha!

    That's a great idea, thanks for passing on!

  • My comment: Any ideas for getting boobs that actually need a bra?

  • Thanks. As soon as I find my breasts I'll make sure to take better care of them and the garments that fit them :)

  • Okay, I know this has nothing to do with reforming a sagging bosom, but I am completely new to this blogging thing, and I have some serious basic questions. Is their a blogging for idiots site you can refer me to, so I know the basic protocol?

  • I have the saddest little empty ballons breasts, I suppose those dirty little rug rats are a fair trade, but some days I do wonder. I heart Victoria's secret for making them (the boobs, not the kids) look . . . well, perky. And now I'm going to shower with my bras. Whoo hoo!

  • Can't really sympathize with the A-cup thing. I'd kill for an A-cup right now. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck with your Sienna. I LOVE mine. Hence the naming and all....

  • I'll give you some of mine, Kage. I think it could be groundbreaking, boob transplanting. That's just how selfless I am. In fact, I probably have enough for several women.

    Girls, I got a bra from VS when I was in New York last spring, it was an impulse, indulgence thing. They measured me and we were all whipping off our clothes and I was oblivious to the small hoopla my garments were causing until I looked up and saw a young man (I don't know young to me is 30 these days) staring at me.

    Well, he was somewhere he wasn't supposed to be. It wasn't my fault.

    But that d--do you allow cussing? bra, cost me $40 and it can't hold anything. My best ones are the cheap ones I got at Wal-Mart.

    Although, I must say, I look very busty when I wear the other one. That will be something I keep and pass down to the grandchildren. Grandma's VS bra.

    Abby, I'm an idiot, hon. I just came on and made a total fool of myself at first. Although I still do, now I'm blaming it on hormones. Soon it will be dementia, although those of you who think I'm senile, yeah, that's the deal.

    People here are nice, hon. :) Be who you are. The rest will work out.

  • annegb, I'm with you on VS bras being worthless. I've shrunk since becoming a mommy, but in my old days I would go to the full-figured section and get the most engineering-enhanced piece of lycra I could find - no pretty lace, flowers, colors, we're talking a boulder holder here. NOw that I'm a little smaller I can at least shop in the regular bra section, but those pretty little things are still pretty worthless to me.

  • Abby, blogger has a good help section, but it deals mostly with how to use the blogger site specifically. If your question is more about the social etiquette associated with blog posting, I came up with this searching for "blog commenting FAQ in Google - I'm sure if you look around a little more (blog manners? Intro guide to blogging?) you can find some more info. But in general, we're a pretty easygoing group here, so practice on us! Some of us are brand new to this too.

  • When I went to VS I couldn't find anything in my size either, and I'm a 36D so they either have a lot of people who buy that size or they just don't have many in that size. Has anyone ever had luck finding something with a little lift in that size? Alright, I admit it, I have saggy boobs and I need a pushup bra. I 'm looking for something in a 36 Long!! LOL

  • mo mommy, I was a 36DD pre-baby, and I had a bra that I LOVED. It isn't pretty, it isn't cheap, but it's awesome - good support, slight minimizer. It's Olga, style #35984. There's plenty of places online to buy them, or I used to get them at Macy's or Bloomingdales. I've turned a few friends on to this bra, it's great.

    Now I'm a 34C, and I have a new bra I'm loving - from JC Penney, barely there 4364 - you can find it here or at your local JCP store...

    Hope that helps! We endowed ladies gotta help each other out!

  • This is a cool photoshoot with women in public places in NYC who have shed not only their shirts, but their bras as well. Warning: Nudity on Top. Check out the thumbnails on the right for the whole story. Click here

  • Ok...it looks like my htmling still needs work.

    Go to www.jordanmatter.com

    which is at the top of a little green box sort of near the right. Good luck.

  • kage, that's really cool! The snow angel one makes me cringe, it looks so cold!
    posted by Blogger marian at 1/07/2006 12:10:00 PM  

  • I like it b/c of the liberation that those women must have felt, and it's nice to see boobs that are real looking...I even found a few that looked a little like mine....pretty much not there! Made me feel better about the shrinkage
    posted by Blogger Kage at 1/07/2006 12:17:00 PM  

  • Kage, I love that website and link for the nude NYC pics - the very first one of the woman bending backward in the snow is strangely inspiring - why is that? Maybe because it looks liberating. Maybe I should start prancing around San Fran topless. Wait...that wouldn't be a big deal...
    posted by Blogger chloe at 1/07/2006 02:10:00 PM  

  • Kage,

    Nice link.

    1. You have an extra "http" in your link -- it works fine when you take that out.

    2. The women in the snow look freezing. Brrr. I'm still cold just thinking about it. I hate the cold. (I love San Diego!) I could handle public nudity much better than nudity-in-the-snow, I'm quite sure.

    3. I can't say for sure, but I think that Tales is the first bloggernacle blog to link to topless women.

    Carrie earlier asked me for advice on increasing traffic, and I gave her some suggestions. I guess I wasn't thinking outside of the box, though, because I didn't think to suggest links to nudity. Nevertheless, on reflection, I'm sure that it will have very positive effects on your blog traffic. Nudity sells!

    4. Okay, fess up -- which of the pics are of which of the Tales bloggers? :P

  • Kaimi-

    I have a funny feeling that female nudity might "sell" better on a less female-dominated site. Maybe you should try it over at T&S?

    And I never thought you would take an interst in a post titled "This year my breasts will not sag". If you are having a problem, I would suggest trying a menssiere or a bro. Just be sure to hand wash them in the shower!

  • Carrie,

    Hey, don't be such a gender essentialist -- men worry about sagging too! :P

    (Actually, however, I arrived at this particular thread via Mardell asking me "did you see those pictures of women in the snow that Tales linked?")

    And don't worry - from now on, I'll tell people, "Yes, I read Tales, but I only read it for the articles. Honest!" ;)

  • kaimi,oh how I wish I was one of those topless girls, but I have to draw the line somewhere...morals and all. I am on the site though...try to guess who I am......
    posted by Blogger Kage at 1/09/2006 02:57:00 PM  

  • Kage,

    You realize that you've just given all of your male readers (and your female readers who are into that, not-that-there's-anything-wrong-with-that) a perfect excuse to carefully pore over all of those photos?

    "Yes, honey, but I'm looking for Kage. No, I don't know what she looks like. But I think that if I just looked over the photos a few more times, very carefully . . ."
    posted by Blogger Kaimi at 1/09/2006 04:08:00 PM  

  • Found it (I think) with the help of a comment clue.

    Cute pictures, Kage!
    posted by Blogger Kaimi at 1/11/2006 12:52:00 PM  

  • hmmmm...you just found a really flat chested girl? You might want to email Carrie and tell her who you think I am, then she can forward the email to me....as to keep my identity a secret...
    posted by Blogger Kage at 1/11/2006 02:13:00 PM  

  • Kage,

    If you are who I think you are, wouldn't it be easier just to e-mail you directly?

    (Also, if you are who I think you are, you vastly overstate the ease with which I would identify you by looking for flat-chested girls!)
    posted by Blogger Kaimi at 1/11/2006 06:57:00 PM  

  • ok. email me...and tell me how you figured it out.
    posted by Blogger Kage at 1/11/2006 07:05:00 PM  

  • Okay, I must know if Kaimi has unmasked Kage... keep us posted...
    posted by Blogger marian at 1/11/2006 07:36:00 PM  

  • Fellow-bloggers, Kaimi totally cheated. I don't know how...but he did. Kaimi, admit it, tell them how you cheated.
    posted by Blogger Kage at 1/12/2006 05:11:00 AM  

  • You have been snarked:

    posted by Blogger Snarkimus Prime at 1/12/2006 05:31:00 AM  

  • I may have cheated (though I'm not sure that the rules were very clear! Yeah, I know, that's what they all say).

    If cheating means using clues found outside of Tales, then I definitely cheated; if cheating means using clues found outside of my conversations with Kage herself, then I didn't cheat at all. I didn't look at anything other than what Kage herself provided.

    Kage, your secret identity is safe with me. I haven't told anyone. Well, except for my wife, my girlfriend, her cat, and Angelina Jolie. But I swore them all to secrecy first.
