Rebecca & Drew Now Has Jackets

I don’t know how long these have been available on their site, but I just discovered them the other day. Kudos for addressing a major issue–fitted jackets that button. Now if only they came in vibrant colors and exciting styles. Next time I’m in the area of the store, I’ll try their jackets and let you know if the sizing truly ends at 38DD. (Nothing after the jump.)

Too Many Bras

I took a big bag full of gently used bras to Iris Lingerie this afternoon, and when she finished walking me through what no longer fit, my lingerie drawer became 15 bras lighter. This means Iris’s sister-in-law’s suitcase just became 15 bras heavier. Please consider making it even heavier with your own donation of gently used bras for needy women in Belize.

As I mentioned on September 17, you can give your bras to me to take to Iris Lingerie (contact me at darlenecee@gmail.com), or you can take or mail them to:

IRIS LINGERIE
366 Atlantic Ave.
Brooklyn, NY 11217
(718) 422-1149

This is a great opportunity to make sure you’re wearing the right size and to clear out clutter. Iris’s sister-in-law doesn’t have a firm departure date yet, so the sooner you make your donation, the better. It’s a good idea to call ahead to make sure she hasn’t already left.

I thought 15 extra bras was a lot . . . until I read what others had to say on The Lingerie Post today. How many do you have?

For Your Small-Breasted Friends

While browsing other peoples’ Twitter followers just now, I found 2 new resources for our smaller sisters: The Little Bra Company and Itsy Bitsy Bra Bar. These are in addition to Lulalu, which I mentioned a while back.

I find it helpful to know about these stores when the subject of breasts comes up, as it inevitably does when people ask me what I do! Given all the clothes they can wear, I almost feel like the other woman is boasting when she says, “I wish I could help, but that’s not my issue,” and looks apologetically down at her bust. Only if she says something like, “But what about something for women like me?” will I venture to recommend one of the stores above.

When I was talking about full-breasted women the other day, Mr. Campbell said, “Doesn’t that make small women feel bad? I mean, if they’re not ‘full’, then are they not complete? It almost sounds like they’re not all woman if they’re not full-breasted.” I never would have thought of that, but he may have a point. Although I envy everything a tiny-breasted woman can wear on top, there’s the slight possibility that she may be sensitive about her size. I try to keep this in mind.
