Presenting: Every Woman’s Bra Guide for the humble residents of Tumblr.
This is everything I’ve learned as a bra fitter put together in a cheery guide. I hope this helps all of you get a bit more comfort out of your bras, because they are a bigger deal than we realize. There are many things I did wrong before I started fitting, and even though I’m not very big busted, I could feel major difference immediately when I started wearing my right size and when I started treating my bras better.
I take no claim to the images used, and only to the writing and colors that ignore a lot of graphic design rules. Also apologies for the massive second image; apparently Tumblr doesn’t allow photosets bigger than 10 images, so I had to combine some. Whoops!
Feel free to ask any questions you may have after reading this guide! It is a lot of information to take in but I’m happy to help.
EDIT 5/10: Wow, thanks for all the kind words! I’ve decided to make a bra advice tumblr for any of your questions on your bras and intimate apparel, so make sure to check it out!
okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.
These are from a wonderful book called The Art Of Comforting. Check it out and learn how to be better at supporting people going through difficult things.

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
