Ok Sassy Mamas, today we’re talking bras! Yep those lacy, racy little numbers you buy to perk yourself up (in more ways than one). But if you’re suffering from post-baby brain, you may have had a temporary memory lapse as to the whereabouts of your prettiest bras – with perfectly good reason I might add! – so I completely get it if a well-fitted, decent-looking bra is just not on your mummy radar right now.
Let’s face it; the changes that go hand in hand with pregnancy and having a baby see our breasts go through a pretty sizable transformation (both up and down)! Unless you’re Elle McPherson, they’ll probably never quite regain that pre-pregnancy perkiness; and changing bra sizes is a little bit like, well, changing time zones… with jet lag to match!
To top it off we all know it can be a little tricky to purchase a good bra in Hong Kong and that many of us are a little more well-endowed than the shops here would like to cater for! So with that in mind, we just plod along in our child-rearing daze, doing the morning dive into our top drawer to fish out any old bra, even if it’s the wrong size and the wrong type.
Not anymore, mama bears! I’ve found the perfect answer to your cleavage woes with Braologie.
I’ll admit I’ve never had a bra fitting before and the idea of having one was a little intimidating. I needn’t have worried – the lovely girls at Braologie made me feel completely comfortable. The company has over 30 years experience online and – to make things even easier for mamas like us – has started ‘door to door’ fittings right here in the ‘Kong! Yep! They’ll come right to your home or office and the whole things takes less than half hour.
AND what an eye opener!
Who knew wearing the wrong bra size could cause stooping, slouched shoulders, saggier breasts, even back pain? Girls, we are carrying heavy loads and all that weight can mean gravity is just not on our side. I’ve also discovered, in the wrong bra, breast tissue migrates! Yes, north, south, east and west… to places you do not want your girls to be!
After giving me the once-over in my comfy bra of choice, it was clear I had it all wrong. Tallia had me in the right bra in no time. My shoulders were instantly pulled back, stomach pulled in, and boobs… well let’s just say they were sitting where they should be without any migration in site!
All of the bras are engineered to hold and support you in the ideal position, (which, surprise, surprise, is not down at your knees!) As well as normal bras in various fabrics, there are all sorts of exciting pieces to improve your overall body shape, such as posture-contour camisoles, mini vests and pants to an all-in-one body suit, (which I couldn’t wait to get on there and then!)
While they initially feel a little awkward (a straightjacket springs to mind) they improve your posture significantly and definitely improve the old body shape.
Who knew you could boost your boobs, slim your thighs, tame your tummy and lift your booty in one fell swoop? Cheers to that, girls!
Oh, and speaking of swooping… the girls at Braologie will show you the “scoop and swoop” technique which puts your girls in their place. They even leave you with a cheat sheet to make sure you wear your fabulous new body-improving undergarments correctly. And while your bust gets a boost, your budget won’t go bust. The door-to-door consultation is free and you just pay for the underwear you wish to purchase.
Don’t worry if you’re a little shy and want to keep things strictly covered up. If you prefer, just email pictures of yourself from the front, side and back so that the experts can determine your needs. For more information, visit their website at www.braologie.com/hk.
