    bras for big boobs chest

    Every lady loves a pretty pair of underwear, or that perfectly frilly, flattering lace bra. However, if you have a larger set of gals sitting up top, finding a cute bra that doesn’t look like some sort of torture device can be a difficult task. You either have to settle for beige, thick-straps and grandma-like bras, or pay an arm and a leg to buy a decent-looking but still supporting brassiere. It can be really frustrating – and I know, as a lady with her very own set of grande muchachas.

    So when Perfects Australia reached out to me and introduced their line of wonderfully girly under-pinnings, I was pleasantly surprised. They had adorable prints, sexy lace and beautiful satin bras in all kinds of sizes! However it didn’t mean anything until I was able to actually take one of their pieces for a test drive, so I immediately picked out a few different types of bras and awaited their arrival.

    After wearing a few different bras from their line, I have for you my honest thoughts on the pieces:

    Pros:

    • Lots of style choices – they don’t look like your typical “big boob bras”
    • Size range is awesome – most styles start at a C go up to a DDDD, which is equivalent to a G.
    • Very supportive – all the styles I tried were very supportive – and the materials seem thick and sturdy for long-lasting wear.
    • Thin Shoulder Straps – yes. THIN shoulder straps – even at the biggest cup size! This means you can wear a tiny tank top or cute dress over these bras without worrying about your giant ugly straps poking out.
    • Low price point – most of the bras range between $40-$50, which is about half the price of buying similar products at specialty lingerie shops.

    Cons:

    • They are VERY sexy – this might seem silly as a con, but if you are looking for a bra to minimize your boobs or de-emphasize them, these bras aren’t the ones. They are great for date nights, nights out with the girls, or even under a nice dress or tank top for work. But if you want an easy t-shirt bra that doesn’t put all the attention on your ladies, this is the best choice.
    • Most styles have padding or thicker cups – I couldn’t find a style without padding or with very thin cups when choosing my bras. If that’s something you like in a bra, this is a good-to-know.
    • Only available online – while the measurement chart worked really well for me, you can only currently purchase these bras online.

    Conclusion:

    I would recommend this line of bras to the ladies looking for one to two sexy bras to have in their lingerie arsenal. They have become my weekend go-tos and I adore the cute cuts and sexy lace.

    Check out Perfects Australia over at Kohls for yourself! Perhaps they will become your #FavoriteBra.

  • I Went Dark

    I’ve had ombre hair for a couple years now. It’s been fun. Flipping my hair around, feeling like that tan, Cali girl who somehow ended up in cloudy Seattle. But, I will always return to my roots: dark hair. And in this case, I went even darker.

    I paired the solid dark color with a collar-bone length cut (which apparently looks good on everyone). I’m in love with the deep color – it’s rich and my hair is bouncy and shiny again (until I ruin it and get back to the salon for them to fix…hehe). Normally, I go to Gene Juarez to get my color/cuts done – but this time I ventured to a new salon in Seattle. Robert Leonard Salon & Spa did an incredible job – and I fell in love with both my colorist and stylist. Eric Weir did the color – and I was so impressed with the results seeing as it was a drastic change. Then, Tyson Rogers did the cut. What a joy Tyson was – he’s one of those perfectly enjoyable people who can chat Beyonce, cut your hair and look fabulous all at the same time. I highly recommend both of these talented men if you are looking for a hair update.

    Enough talk. Here’s more hair pictures. And if you are thinking about getting a mane-change, definitely consider checking out the RL Salon.

    Hair color and cut was courtesy of Robert Leonard Salon. My comments about the salon are my honest opinions.

    Boyfriend Jeans. They are SO HOT right now. Have you shied away from sportin’ a pair due to fear of looking like Martha Stewart on a Saturday? I get it. I had that same fear, but I was able to overcome it – by figuring out how to style them in the “cool girl” way instead of the “hipster or mom?” way.

    Fear the Oprah pant no more. This trend is certified cool-girl and everyone can rock it. Here are my styling tips for how to wear those mom boyfriend jeans:

    • Slouchy Fit: Make sure your boyfriend jeans have a relaxed, slouchy fit. However – ensure that you do NOT have a slouchy camel toe. No CTs ladies.
    • Sloppy Roll: Roll up your boyfriend jeans like you don’t even care. Sloppy rolls. That easy, it’s-whatever roll-up.
    • No Sacks Please: Make sure your shirt isn’t TOO oversized. Relaxed fit is always good – but if you have a giant, billowing top with slouchy jeans, you will just look like a sack. Unless you’re Cara Delevingne. But you’re not. So find a relaxed but fitted top.
    • Tuck ‘er In: Tuck your top in. A little or a lot, you decide.
    • Girl Up: Pair with something girly. This could be a bright lipstick, a fun necklace, etc. You have to balance out the BF-vibe with some BFF-vibes.
    • Belt Optional: A belt can help your slouchy jeans stay in place (like mine, which are 1-2 sizes too big for my waist), and also can add an additional cool-girl effect.

    There you have it. Go find some awesome, ripped, ragged boyfriend jeans and pony up to this trend.
