Confessions Of A Curvy Girl: The Finer Things

Confessions Of A Curvy Girl
You need tires for your car. As a matter of fact, you need to be sure to keep them aired up and in good shape. If you don’t, you aren’t going anywhere.

You do preventative maintenance on your furnace, large appliances and other large items around the house. If you don’t, you could have a problem on your hands.

You would never tell someone they needed to give up doing preventative maintenance on their own bodies would you? When did it become frivolous or materialistic to buy quality accessories for yourself? Sturdy shoes that last, pants that fit and bras that don’t pinch or bind are necessities. Have you ever spent a day walking in shoes that are too tight or wearing pants that restrict your breathing? Don’t, just don’t.

I once felt that I had to justify my choices in buying a new outfit every month. I wasn’t choosing straight off the rack, rather I was waiting until the things I wanted were on sale. I didn’t want to sacrifice quality so I waited until what I wanted was affordable. You can do that sometimes.

When it comes to buying a bra though, don’t sacrifice. Don’t skimp. Think of it this way: this tiny piece of fabric and elastic is holding up part of your body and helping to define your shape. This is not the time for bargain basement shopping. Walk, don’t run, to your drawers and snatch up your oldest bra you have been holding onto for some reason and throw it away.

Head on over to, measure yourself with the easy to use Universal Cup Size (UCS™) measuring guide and find one bra that will make your day. Heck, find one that will make your week!
