This is a guest post.

URKYE recently released the Kameleon blazer in black and in blue.  Photos of the blazer were released in the spring, and I’ve been looking forward to it ever since.  The product appears to be a hit, as it sold out in most sizes within days.  With such a successful debut, I hope that URKYE will create more stock and introduce additional blazers in the future.

Phrases That Make Me See Red

Tags

, , ,

There are certain words or phrases that become trendy or popular among some groups. It can quickly catch on to everyday speech. For example, the ‘That’s gay’ that ruled many years of my high school career and I don’t even know where it originates from. I only know that it’s extremely offensive because it equates being homosexual with stupid, dumb, or what have you.

It’s a phrase that was better left not being part of society’s vocabulary. Hearing someone use that phrase makes me see red and for good reason. Regardless of what I recognize myself as, I do pride myself on being an open-minded, overall loving of humankind, which includes whatever you wish to be.

Though, when speaking my mind of the hate I feel upon hearing the phrase, I get met with a multitude of reactions that stem from my ‘sensitivity’ and ‘inability to take a joke.’ All jokes aside(which are far too many for something as serious as homophobia), I am an emotionally charged person. I go all out with how I feel and many take it as overreacting. I consider it passionate of what I believe and feel and think. It does not make me weak, or my opinions less valuable, it simply is that I am expressing without shame.

But suppression, as the given example above, is a whole other post and not my current intent. The following phrases are phrases that are related to this blog overall, ones I see far too often, and ones that are still considered the norm. I will give my explanation(read:rant) on why it makes me see red.

Kiecka Tubowa w Liście – Review

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Urkye; a Polish clothing company that boasts on creating clothing for women based on two different measurements: bust and waist. They’re a company that is a hit with the blogger community, especially non-Polish women in general. Many of the lingerie bloggers I know, specifically those who are more bust related, all adore this company and their products. There aren’t enough companies that cater to women in such a way.

I have had a guest blogger review many items from this company[x, x, x] but now it is my turn. Having been contacted by Urkye to do a review, I was offered their latest dress, the Kiecka tubowa w liście in a 38oo/ooo after some brief conversing regarding sizing.

Available in sizes 34o/oo-40oo/ooo.
— 92% viscose, 8% elastane

My bust is 39″-40″ with a bra and I vary between 29″-31″ in the waist. The size I chose was perfect.

URKYE Summer 2013

Thie is a guest post.

Introduction to URKYE

URKYE is a Polish company offering clothing for full-busted women.  Sizes are determined by waist and bust measurements, generating a European clothing size with a ‘bustiness’ modifier.  For stretch clothing–which is more generous than the chart suggests–there are two busty levels, o/oo and oo/ooo.  There is an English version of the website, and orders can be paid with Paypal or bank transfer.  I usually receive packages within a week, but it may take a little longer if you live outside of Europe.  I’ve never had a problem with returns or exchanges.

Summer 2013 Selection

The summer selection includes Kiecka tubowa (119 zł, equal to about $37, €28 or £24), Dwulicowa tuba ($19/€14/£12), Kopertówka ($25/€19/£16), Skubik ($25/€19/£16) and Twister ($23.50/€18/£15).  The tops are all available in several different colors.

Let’s Talk Sports…Bras! – Panache Sports Review

Tags

, , , ,

So the gym…it’s a place I’ve been spending a lot of time at the past couple months and I really enjoy it. And you can all yell at me when I tell you that I haven’t been wearing a sports bra. (gasp!) It’s quite scandalous, I know. But I couldn’t find time to get the sports bra I tried last year back from my stepmother. So when I was contacted by Large Cup Lingerie to try a 32GG with matching shorts in a 14, I was more than eager to jump on the offer of trying a Sport!

This is a guest post.

Introduction to BiuBiu

For those not familiar with BiuBiu, here’s a quick introduction to this Polish clothing company for full-busted women.  Clothing is fit according to waist, hips, or the European clothing size you would wear if not for your breasts, and your bust size.  For stretch fabrics, there are two options: B/BB and BB/BBB.  Breast room is often more generous than the sizing chart indicates for stretch fabrics, but not for tailored clothing like button-down shirts.  Prices are comparable to what you find in a department store, and quality is usually quite good.  There is an English-language version of the website, and orders can be paid by credit card or Paypal.  Packages are usually received within a week if you are also in Europe and may take a bit longer further afield.  Returns and exchanges are not a problem, but because of exchange rates and shipping costs many people prefer to resell rather than return.

T-shirts: BiuBiu and URKYE – Guest Review

This is a guest post.

A t-shirt in a solid color is great because you can wear it casually or dress it up.  But even this simple basic staple presents a challenge for the busty woman.  Do you get a loose shirt three sizes too big just so it will fit your breasts?  (I think the answer is yes: they make nice nighties.)  Do you get a stretchy t-shirt which still doesn’t come completely in to your waist, and which has wrinkles on the side?

SugarShape – Double Review

Tags

, , , , , , , , ,

SugarShape; a company doing their own thing with their own style all in attempt to help women overcome letterphobia while being properly sized. The way this brand goes about things is by using the underbust and (standing) bust measurement with a different style of labeling (which does cause complications with our dear Jj.) The style of labeling that they have is using those exact measurements instead of a band and letter. It does help take away the ‘stress’ that can be caused by a cup letter.
