Happy Tuesday Swimwear and Lingerie friends.

Today’s vintage lingerie ad is of the Perma-Lift variety. Let’s take a little look-see and ponder it for a few minutes.

I’m just going to say it… I totally love this ad.

A) She’s really cute AND she’s a brunette!
B) That bra is totally wicked. I would absolutely love to recreate it and think I may just give it a try this weekend.
C) I’m not sure what the petal shape on the bra is for, but it looks like a mop top hairdo which makes me giggle. It’s like one of the Beatles is on your boob.
D) I’m even not worried about the whole mis-labelling of the shapewear as “perma- lift”. Which is pretty huge for me. I guess I just like that the tag line is “The lift that never let’s you down”. It sounds so positive and supportive, which is really nice considering all the ways in which the clothing industry tries to keep women down.
E) It even looks like she’s wearing one that fits properly, with lift and separation!

Not bad for a stroll down Retro lane.

What do you think it all? Am I just too easy to please? {Pah! I almost couldn’t say that with a straight face}

Is there a sinister message hidden beneath all of that happy, glossy vintage goodness?

Cheers,

Maggie

Hey there Swimwear and Lingerie lovers!

It’s Thursday and that means we had better get a move on our fitting tip for today’s post.

Today’s theme is all about missed opportunities:

Think back… waaay back… what have you missed lately because you didn’t have a well-fit bra?

Things that make you go hmmmmm? Quick name that song!

Things that make you go hmmmmm? Quick name that song!

Have you impulsively jumped into a spontaneous double dutch skip off with the local hot shots…

…without worrying that it would turn into an anatomy lesson when your chest bursts free from the over-worked elastic of your undersized bra cups?

Double Dutch and sex ed... not a good combination.

Double Dutch and sex ed… not a good combination.

No? C’mon how cool would that be? {not the whole bursting forth, but actually double dutching up a storm and totally regaining your childhood street cred!}

So very, very cool! I miss jumping rope for longer than three passes... need to get practicing again!

So very, very cool! I miss jumping rope for longer than three passes… need to get practicing again!

Well, just imagine if you could…

It might well be worth the two seconds of shyness you’ll experience before a capable bra fitting expert, at your local independent lingerie boutique, puts you at ease, tells you what your actual bra size is and shows you how a bra should fit!

Wait... no that's not what I meant... I was going for a moment of clarity and understanding...bah, never mind.

Wait… no that’s not what I meant… I was going for a moment of clarity and understanding…bah, never mind.

The world is your skipping competition, don’t be a wussy wall flower, get out there and dance it up!

Oh and the answer to the quick side note question is:

Hello Swimwear and Lingerie buddies.

Yesterday I was chit-chatting about what a total maroon I am and how I threw all my knowledge and hard won research and experience-based training out the window in my quest to wear a long line bra.

Me + Maroon= Accepted, owned and awesome!

Me + Maroon= Accepted, owned and awesome!

{ack, the lure of low price lingerie… I thought I was immune, but was easily tricked by the “same size= NOT same size UK edition, even though Freya/Panache/Fantasie etc are all UK brands and I fit their G cups beautifully…}

It didn’t work out so well for me.

Still scratching my head and trying to figure out how that all happened... I KNOW BETTER, DARN IT!

Still scratching my head and trying to figure out how that all happened… I KNOW BETTER, DARN IT!

{Anyone wanna buy a rather sweaty long line bra in a 38I US size which equals a UK 38G? Only worn once! No? Only slightly pulled out of shape by frantic anti-poking manouevers!}

But today is another day and I thought it would be fun to look at a vintage lingerie ad from Gossard from back in the day!

What do you think?

She’s young… she’s lovely…

{… it sounds like the build up to a horror movie doesn’t it?}

So very, very scared of the build up they're giving the girl in the Gossard lingerie... what's she gonna do now?

So very, very scared of the build up they’re giving the girl in the Gossard lingerie… what’s she gonna do now?

She’ll rip your face off in her blood and gore-filled quest for TOTAL PLANET DOMINATION!!!! Mwaaa haa haaa {cue evil Vincent Price laugh}

He was so awesome!!!! Could always find a way to make everyting super-creepy ;) Even lingerie!

He was so awesome!!!! Could always find a way to make everyting super-creepy πŸ˜‰ Even lingerie!

I just can’t get over how blatant the copy is at telling their beautiful, young and healthy target market that their youthful perfection, ISN’T PERFECT ENOUGH!

Cue the creepy-ass Stepford Wives! June Cleaver would have shived them all, she was a rebel in a crinoline, working from the inside!

Cue the creepy-ass Stepford Wives! June Cleaver would have shived them all, she was a rebel in a crinoline, working from the inside!

But wait… she’s also “wise”!

Wise to the way in which her culture demands that she conform to completely unattainable and over the top standards of beauty, behaviour and thought. And at such a young age… awww, how lovely!

Clearly, she must learn at an early age to play the game or else she won't survive... survive adolescence to move on to the snakepit of adult human interactions!

Clearly, she must learn at an early age to play the game or else she won’t survive… survive adolescence to move on to the snakepit of adult human interactions!

I think my favourite part of the ad is where they state that; ”
She knows that her youthful and near perfect figure needs Gossard’s uplift and pantie girdle to achieve that super smooth look…

That’s right folks. No matter what we may think and the illustration would appear to show a young lady with a very enviable figure… it is only NEAR perfect. Luckily, the pantie girdle and uplift bring it that extra 10 %. phew.

Isn't she lucky? She has a choice! Conform or conform... but then again, she could just conform and get it over with!

Isn’t she lucky? She has a choice! Conform or conform… but then again, she could just conform and get it over with!

Actually, I take it back… that isn’t my favourite part. It’s really where they say; ” that good figure grooming now will help retain her youthful beauty in years to come.”

That’s right! The youthful beauty that isn’t good enough right now, will be groomed to last for years to come!!!

She gets the gift of eternal inadequacy… what more could women lingerie consumers ask for?

Cheers,

Maggie

It's what all the cool kids are doing. Definitely easier than trying to maintain any individuality or self esteem.

Happy Monday my darling Swimwear and Lingerie friends!

I get to reveal another wonderful bra from my recent lingerie delivery!!!

I was making a huge order from Figleaves UK and was almost ready to hit submit, when I happened to notice a lonely long line bra calling out to me.

Gossard Sassy Plunge Bra

Gossard Sassy Plunge Bra

It was in a rather bright pinky-purpley shade that I generally don’t gravitate towards. It’s from Gossard and I don’t really have a lot of experience with that brand, so I thought, “Hey why not give it a shot?”

What can I say… I really love long lines and I was super excited about the Freya Nieve I had just ordered, so my optimism may have made me a little impulsive! There was just one left in my size, it had to be fate.

Gossard Sassy Longline Bra, Plunge style

Gossard Sassy Longline Bra, Plunge style

As you can see from the pictures, it is a bright purple- pink with black fishnet lace over top, some interesting black lace detailing and a bling-ish little charm thing at the center gore. All in all, it reminded me a bit of the showiness of an old west burlesque piece. Which helped to offset my lack of enthusiasm for the color.

Gossard Sassy Long line Plunge Bra

Gossard Sassy Longline Plunge Bra

The band fit nicely at first, although, it was looser than other 38’s that I’ve tried. I could probably have gone down to a 36 and been a bit more comfortable. The wider parts of the sides and back were nice enough and certainly kept me feeling nicely supported and tucked in.

Rear view of Gossard's Sassy Plunge Bra

The cups on the other hand were definitely not what I was expecting. They’re padded with thin foam and meant to be a fairly deep plunge style, however the cup size was so large, my partner was actually shocked.

{Which doesn’t happen often when you’re married to a 38GG}

He actually laughed and said, “Wow, those cups are huge! No way is that fitting you!”

I, of course, was all, “Well, I ordered my regular size and the tag says that’s what they are…”

This is my unsure face. But still, optimism is egging me on... darn you optimism!

This is my unsure face. But still, optimism is egging me on… darn you optimism!

{albeit in a really doubtful lame voice, because even I was a bit unnerved by their sheer scope. They fit really well on my noggin. One cup actually went around the circumference of my head… not a good sign}

The tag said it was a 38 G and darn it, I’d already bought and paid for it, so I decided I might as well see what it was like. Maybe it was just sized generously due to the whole plunge thing.

Even Dr. Evil knows I'm an idiot.

Even Dr. Evil knows I’m an idiot.

I wore it to work and then a lacrosse game {spectating, NOT playing} in order to put it through the paces and see how Gossard bras worked for me.

I was definitely unimpressed.

And neither does Maggie... or her boobs.

And neither does Maggie… or her boobs.

The cups were infinitely too big and it was ridiculous to have thought that cups that big were going to somehow magically support my GG breasts and fit my body.

My boobs were soooo not happy. Not as unhappy as this cat though... this thing is pure evil... I'm pretty sure this is what causes the upcoming apocalypse.

My boobs were soooo not happy. Not as unhappy as this cat though… this thing is pure evil… I’m pretty sure this is what causes the upcoming apocalypse.

The cups circled up under my arms and stabbed me in the armpits, necessitating a lot of wiggling and quick fixes every five minutes. Always a charming behaviour in super stodgey corporate Canada!

The center gore refused to stay seated against my chest and kept riding up and out to no man’s land.

It may as well have been here, certainly wasn't doing any good where it was resting.

It may as well have been here, certainly wasn’t doing any good where it was resting.

The band size wasn’t quite tight enough so it kept creeping up and the extra length of the bra that created the “should-have-been-sexy” long line effect, curled up in a dead spider way. I think the boning needed to be a bit more rigid to keep it in place and prevent it from trying to run back to its friends.

Hmmm, sorry, that should probably have come with a warning.

Hmmm, sorry, that should probably have come with a warning.

I was also sweating up a storm in it. I don’t know if it was because there wasn’t enough airflow through the fabric or if it was because I was getting an aerobic workout just trying to keep it from climbing up my chest and bursting through my neckline like a really garishly coloured Alien.

This should probably have come with a warning too. Sorry about that. Hey! Remind me to tell you a funny story about pregnancy, Aliens and labour sometime!

This should probably have come with a warning too. Sorry about that. Hey! Remind me to tell you a funny story about pregnancy, Aliens and labour sometime!

So, can you guess why it all turned out like that?

Even Cpt. Picard thinks I'm a dolt.

Even Cpt. Picard thinks I’m a dolt.

I’ll give you a hint. I did something dumb. Really, really dumb.

...when I look in the mirror!

…when I look in the mirror!

I assumed that a 38G would be the same in all brands, I didn’t bother to check the sizing chart of Gossard specifically. the chart below isn’t from Gossard, but it will give you a hint as to what I was experiencing.

Bra Cup Conversion Chart

Bra Cup Conversion Chart

I was wearing a cup size that was easily 2 cups too large. Which, when we’re talking about D+ sizing… means a whole heck of a lot bigger. I was basically trotting around in an I cup.

I’m an idiot.

Raiseyourhandifyou'reatotalschmuckthatgotallspendhappyandforgottodoyourduediligenceandcheckthepropersizes!!!

Raiseyourhandifyou’reatotalschmuckthatgotallspendhappyandforgottodoyourduediligenceandcheckthepropersizes!!!

I should have checked out the conversion charts provided on their website to get a clue.

Gossard Fitting Guide

Gossard Fitting Guide

Now that I’ve been to the site and looked around, I noticed that their Fitting Calculator has been disabled, so that wouldn’t have helped.

Sigh... I know...

Sigh… I know…

The statement below the Fitting Calculator was interesting though…

“Please note that this calculator is intended only as a guide and is most accurate between cup sizes A-DD – it should be used as a starting point for finding your perfect fit. Because we know every one of our Gossard Girls is unique we recommend that ladies with a cup size of above a DD get fitted in-store for an accurate measurement. Gossard Bras range from an A to a G cup.”

What’s the deal with that? Why are the E+ cup sizes so complicated? If you offer A-G cup sizes, then shouldn’t you offer products that perform reliably across that range of sizes?

You're right, you're absolutely right... I'll stop now.

You’re right, you’re absolutely right… I’ll stop now.

In other words, I have now ordered and worn a US size “I” in Gossard cups sizes rather than the US FF-GG I actually need. Sigh…. no wonder my armpits have been poked so much I felt like I was smuggling a porcupine.

So cute and snuggly, right?

So cute and snuggly, right?

I wonder how it fits in the correct size?

All breasts are beautiful and they all deserve well fit, comfortable support.

Well, it’s Thursday Swimwear and Lingerie Friends!

Let’s dive right into our Fitting Tip Thursday post.

Sofia Vergara Cleavage

If you’re breasts are so squoooooshed together that they regularly look like they’re having a cage match to decide which is the more dominant and wins the right of sternum space,

They even kind of look like boobies don't they?

They even kind of look like boobies don’t they?

…and a sweat river created by the close quarters ensures that you have a “waterway to heaven” rather than a “hairway to heaven“, perpetually trickling down your chest and tummy into your pants, leaving an ever-growing watermark and sweat stain on all of your tops,

Splish splash, you better take a baaaath.

Splish splash, you better take a baaaath.

{deep breath now}

You might need a bra fitting.

But I guess that’s only applicable if you find the above situations uncomfortable and unsanitary.

{So many people do it, that there must be a weird cult following for super-sweaty, smelly cleavage or something}

Hiya Swimwear and Lingerie friends!

It might be Monday, but I’m all smiles πŸ™‚ {See? no word of a lie!}

Shiny Happy Me!

Shiny Happy Me!

You may recall I had a difficult time last week and even lingerie kicked me when I was down… sniff sniff.

But I was finally able to go and pick up my deliveries at the Post Office and all is right with the world again πŸ™‚

I was going to tell you all the fabulous things that I purchased, but now, I think I’ll just reveal them bit by bit with reviews and commentary. It’s more fun that way!

Anticipation! It's a good thing ;)

Anticipation! It’s a good thing πŸ˜‰

I’m wearing the bra I’m reviewing today, because it’s just so fabulous and I actually feel like a million bucks, which isn’t easy considering that I have the self esteem of a grade eight girl right about now.

Still very sad.

Still very sad.

{Thank you corporate Canada for making life so infintely lovely and dependably blech!}

Now, usually I don’t mention if I am a fan of the product until the end of the review, but I just can’t help it with this one… I LUUUURVE IT!

Freya Nieve; So pretty!

Freya Nieve; So pretty!

You see, it’s a Freya, so the quality is pretty awesome. I have yet to be disappointed by any of their wondrous garments.

Yup, I really, really do!

Yup, I really, really do!

It’s a long line bra which fulfills a fantasy of mine from waaay back!

Usually I can’t find one in a 38 back, but this one goes the distance.

Tri City Roller Girls, they're pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself! *fangirl*

Actually the band fits a little more snug than usual, which is wicked because thanks to my aerobic falling with the Tric City Roller Girls Fresh Meat BootCamp, my chest girth has actually gone down!

However, it didn’t come in a G or GG, which is what I really wanted to order, so I was prepared to make do with the FF cup.

*shamefaced*  yup, I did...I'm THAT girl

It all worked out really well though, because not only has my band size gone down, but so has my cup size apparently!

Shocking!

It’s like Freya knew all along!

I love Freya so much I might as well just buy the Tshirt!

The center gore is resting comfortably against my sternum and artfully helping to lift and separate my breasts but without giving me that over the top cleavage look.

Freya Nieve Longline Bra

The extra wide band is keeping all of my side and back flab properly contained and under control which is a real bonus of the longline style!

Full disclosure of bra-putting-on-FAIL! I have to admit that row of seven hook and eye closures was a little bit tricky and I did eventually turn the bra around to just get ‘er done. Something that I’ve also written about in the past as a no no.

That's right I say "NO!" Unless it's really hard in which case I say, "Oh go on... give it a shot!"

That’s right I say “NO!” Unless it’s really hard in which case I say, “Oh go on… give it a shot!”

Wow, I’m just breaking all the rules these days now aren’t I? Guess I’m just a rebel.

But you know what isn’t rebellious? The fabric pattern, it’s really cute!

The print is pretty darn awesome too!

Happy Thursday my lovely Swimwear and Lingerie freaks.

Today’s Fitting Tip Thursday post comes from personal experience. {mostly}

We’ll be using the always beautiful Fauve Lingerie to illustrate some of these points!

Visible bra straps

Visible bra straps

If your bra straps spend more time around your elbows than hoisting your boobs up on your shoulders, and you’ve begun accessorizing your outfit by dangling charms, earrings, chili pepper fairy lights and other bits of bling on them like a perverse Christmas garland…

That Grinch is not a professional Bra Fitter!

Bra straps falling off may be a bigger cause of road accidents than texting!

Bra straps falling off may be a bigger cause of road accidents than texting!

An experienced fitter will probably tell you to try adjusting the straps to a tighter fit and if that doesn’t help the issue, then they may point out one of the following issues as well:

Courtesy of Venusian Glow

1. The bra style isn’t right for your breast shape. If you are trying to wear a full cup bra and your breasts do not have a lot of volume on the top, then the looser fit at the top of the cup may not be able to keep the shoulder straps from falling off. Instead you can try wearing a balconette bra style or demi cup.

Fauve Celine Balconette Bra

2. Depending on your body type, your bra may have the straps spaced too widely for your frame. If your shoulders are narrow or slope, then you may want to try a racerback or more closely spaced strap style bras.

3. The band size may be too big and causing your bra to ride up in the back. Try fastening your bra on the next tighter hook or going down a band size.

4. The cup size may be too big. Try going down a cup size.

Happy Thursday Swimwear and Lingerie friends.

It’s Fitting Tip Thursday and I have a lovely little song that should hopefully prove inspiring and more than a little informative of what to look for in an improperly fit bra.

Hey! My singing isn't THAT bad! Sheesh... You people are going to give me a complex soon.
