About the Blog
If your breasts measure at least four inches more than your rib cage and you know that a DD isn’t the largest cup size on the planet, then Hourglassy is the blog for you. Whether or not you’re a “pure” hourglass, a lollipop, a pear, a square, an inverted triangle or a figure eight, if you’ve got big boobs, Hourglassy can help you
- discover companies that create clothing, bras and swimsuits for the large bust market;
- consider which busty dressing “rules” apply to you and when to break the ones that do;
- see how to make the latest fashion trends work with large cup sizes;
- find solutions to problems that only a large-breasted woman can understand (and if we don’t have a solution, we’ll provide an ample bosom to cry on);
- laugh, vent and share observations about life with large breasts.
About the Writers
Darlene Campbell, Founder
It’s my mission to connect busty women around the world with the clothing and strategies that help us love the way we look. My passion began in 2008 when I left my career as a corporate attorney to create dress shirts for full-busted women. I started sharing my discoveries on Hourglassy and haven’t been able to stop. My husband and I live in Queens with Laly, our failed first attempt at fostering a kitty.
Leah, Columnist, Off the Rack
Having learned to sew at a very young age, as a curve-embracing adult I realized it was far easier to alter clothes to suit my shape rather than find ones designed with an hourglass figure in mind. I want to spread a positive outlook of the busty figure and help women realize that the problem isn’t with their bodies, but with the clothes. Never one to shy away from honesty, my posts sometimes border on the rant-y side–hence the column name, Off the Rack. When I’m not obsessing over bras, I can usually be found editing or reading comics. I live in New York City with a husband who reluctantly listens to all my bra histrionics and our west highland terrier puppy.
Jennifer, Columnist, GG Musings
I love fashion and I have been obsessed with dresses since I was a little girl who refused to wear pants. Finding dresses to fit an HH cup isn’t easy and I’m passionate about sharing my finds with the Hourglassy community. I count online shopping as one of my main hobbies, giving me lots to review (don’t worry most of it gets returned!). I live and work in NYC. When I am not contemplating my wardrobe and minimalism, I love to explore the city, visit my sister and her kids, take ballet classes and study German.
Rosalind, Occasional Columnist
After a sudden growth spurt took me from an AA cup to a C cup at age 14, I struggled to find bras that fit my skinny frame and ever-expanding bustline. By the time I was in my 20s, I thought I had it all figured out as a 30G/28FF. Life was good and the bra options were plentiful. Then, I became pregnant with my first child and gained 5 additional cup sizes! I was frustrated with the apparent lack of H+ cup options for pregnant and nursing mothers. With the support of the bra blogging community I have found reliable nursing solutions that supported me through 32 cumulative months of breastfeeding! I want to help other young mothers who are in similar situations.
I currently live in Connecticut with my husband and our two active toddlers. I love to sew (especially making/altering clothes to fit my bustline!), bake, read mystery and fantasy novels, and do nail art.
