I can’t even believe that we have to say this, but we were watching How Do I Look on the Style Network, and there was a woman wearing an ill fitting swimsuit, army fatigues, combat boots and NO BRA. We know, we’re not being good feminist fashionistas—well, oh well, because if you have large breasts and you are a big girl, and you are not wearing a bra—then we need to help you get some real support.
We understand, it’s freeing to have on no bra, thin girls, or women with smaller breasts can get away with it, but you know what? We cannot. Wearing a bra is a must.
The most mortifying moment: you’re at home when someone just pops over, or a friend brings someone to your house and you realize that people are in the room and you don’t have a bra on! And then you have to cross your arms and pretend like you are really in the conversation—but instead you are trying to push up your boobs (And you are thinking about the fact that you have no bra on). Only you have the power to stop this. So, we have created a pledge, for all of the people out there who believe that a supported breast is a happy breast.
No Saggies Pledge!
Why take the pledge? Big girls have to wear panties, and big girls have to wear bras (Most of the time).
I pledge to be a progressive and still wear a bra.
I pledge to not buy a bra from Walmart or Kmart.
I pledge to never wear a swimsuit that has no support.
I pledge to tell my girlfriends when their bra is too small.
I pledge to wear the appropriate bra at the gym. I also pledge to wear the appropriate bra with the appropriate shirt.
I pledge to wear the correct bra size no matter how big it is.
I pledge to throw away a bra if it pinches my back fat, or my side fat, or my fat in the front.
I pledge to wear a bra with more than 2 closure points.
LESSON: HO W TOFIND YOUR BRA SIZE
STEP 1: BAND SIZE
Measure under your arms, high on your back, across the top of your chest. If this measurement is an even number, this is your band size. If an odd number, add 1″ to determine your band size.
STEP 2: CUP SIZE
Measure loosely around the fullest part of your bust. Next, subtract your band measurement from your bust measurement; each inch represents a cup size. For example: if your band measurement is 34″ and your bust measurement is 36″, the difference between these measurements is two inches, and you’d wear a B-cup.
