One of the goodies we got at the Busty Clothing Swap was a coupon for the NYC Bettie Page Clothing store. The Alika dress fit me perfectly, so I was super excited to get 20% off something else. I spent a good hour and a half one day trying on everything that even remotely drew my attention, but it turned out to be decidedly unsuccessful. It seems the Alika was a fluke, because nearly everything else has no room for boobs (or a butt if the hips are tight) and the waists were nearly all unflattering.
Apologies for the poor quality photos. I forgot to bring my real camera, so had to do it all with iPhone selfies. And unfortunately, the changing room doors are black, so it was hard to see the edge of anything dark-colored. Click to view any of the pictures bigger.
Finally, I made one last ditch effort to find something that worked, and pawed through the sale rack. All stuff from the previous season, there wasnâ€™t a single small or medium to be found. Just the ends of the spectrumâ€”xxs, xs, xlâ€“4x. However, I did pull out one size large and realized that it looked a little smallâ€¦
This beauty ended up being on sale for more than half-off so I didnâ€™t use my coupon. I had planned on going back and trying a few more things when they came in to the store, but never got around to it so this ended up being my only purchase.
Moral of the story: Do not assume anything from Bettie Page will fit you even if a previous purchase worked well. You must try on everything!
And one last photo to compare to the Ice Coffee no-butt. Hereâ€™s what my rear looks like when itâ€™s not being crushed to deathâ€¦
