Hello my Swimwear and Lingerie type people!

It’s Fitting Tip Thursday and that means it’s also time for our weekly bout of encouragement to the bra-fitting shy or misguided.

Today’s post deals with a particular issue that I think will ring true for many folks. We all know someone who fits this description and is probably just one well-fit bra away from discovering true rib cage freedom!

{cough, Christina Hendricks, cough}

Christina Hendricks, so lovely and so desperately in need of better support garment advice!

Seriously though, I’m not picking on the girl, I really do wish that she could just have a personal fitting done with a reputable bra fitter. Apparently the one she has now has been telling her that she is a 36D-38DDD which is just ridiculous! That would mean that she was smaller than me {um… ya no}

Christina Hendricks: See what happens when she isn't being squeezed into something waaaay to small for her bust? Okay there's a bit of squeezing going on here, but not much comparatively!

Luckily for us the ever fabulous Sophia Jenner has already covered this mystery beautifully on her lingerie blog and you can read all about it here!

And, now on to our task. Greetings and salutations to Mr. Foxworthy and awaaaaay we go! It’s short and sweet this time lovelies so don’t blink or you’ll miss it!

If your chest looks like the gangway for a skeeball carnival game…

Skeeball boobies... always lots of 'em at the swimming pool change rooms too!

{Important side note, I was left extremely traumatized as a small child when I would change after public swims in the communal change rooms and all the little old ladies, who hadn’t supported their jubliees for most of their lives, would take off their swimwsuits and strut around showing off their Skeeball-Boobies. I thought it was inevitable! That it was something that was going to happen to me no matter what! Ack!}

…because all the breast tissue has been left unsupported for so long, that it now dangles way, way down towards your waist….acting as a potential inspiration for a cool, new sport of appendage hacky-sack the “knee-up” edition!…

This lovely lady has Skeeball Boobies but isn't the least bit amused by it!

and all together now and let’s try to put that wicked southern drawl on it this time….

You might need a bra fitting!

That’s right folks, there’s still hope if you haven’t supported the girls ’till now, you can still make a difference and at the very least prevent continuing tissue damage!
Cheers,

Maggie
