Bras Customized For You

A few of you have expressed frustration overly ill-fitting bras.  I just came across a customized bra shopping company.  Check out True & Co as they have an online quiz you can easily shop for a bra that fits. I hope it works for you as when I took the quiz, they said they don't have my size. Yikes! I know I'm large chested, but that's embarrassing!   Good luck!  You may also want to check out this post on custom made bras. … [Read more...]

Afraid of Having Tall Kids?

As a blogger, I get lots of emails and questions and sometimes they have nothing to do with fashion.  I love my readers and am excited that some of you trust me enough with your deepest thoughts. Some of your emails weigh heavy on my mind!  Over the last few years, a few of you have expressed concern and anxiety over your future and fears of being a parent. In particular some of you are extremely anxious about reproducing tall children. Now, I know this is a valid fear for some of you. After all, perhaps you've been bullied or struggled with self-esteem issues you believe have stemmed from your height.  Many of you hold your head high, but secretly are just trying to figure out ways to feel more comfortable in your skin. I understand! Don't think for a moment that I didn't have some of these issues cross my mind. I haven't always been overly confident.  My middle school years were brutal! I had a lot of negative self-talk and internalized the things insecure short boys said to … [Read more...]

Personal Shopping: Bra Size 40A

First off, I'm going to request that you don't leave snarky comments. When people ask for personal shopping help, they have real problems and are seeking real solutions: I received the following email: Hi Krista, I came across your site and was very happy, and just needed to share my experience and ask for some help finding some good options for bras. I am having a tall girl problem with finding a bra. I am slightly over 6' tall. I am athletic and have a small bust, but a larger rib cage. I haven't been able to find a bra that fit well in years, and I was wondering why. My roommate went and got professionally measured the other day and she was ecstatic to get a bra that fit her well for the first time. So of course I decided it was time to get measured. It turns out that I am a 40A, which is not carried in stores I can find. I started to look online, but I could only find either extremely expensive bras which are way out of my price range, or bras my grandma would wear (I'm … [Read more...]

Fur Real

After seeing a couple of fur items in tall sizes I figured this trend was worth blogging. Of course one of the items (a pretty faux fur vest) must have sold out but there's still plenty to go around.  I mostly love fur. I'll admit; it's a bit daring.  But these days there are so many sources of inspiration and instruction on how to wear certain trends that it's definitely doable.  As always if you can't find the trend in tall sizes or are too afraid to don a full faux fur piece, use accessories to get in on the action.  Just have fun with it! Tall Fur Jacket. I'd wear this with skinny jeans and merlot pumps or edgy black booties. Faux Fur Collar Tall Cardigan. A conservative take. Luxury Faux Fur Scarf. Add fur to any winter ensemble instantly. Cut Faux Tall Fur Coat. It's fashion forward and cool.Tall Navy Fur Collar Coat. Just a touch of fur gives this demure coat a sophisticated edge.  French Connection Faux Fur Clutch. A fun and edgy way to embrace the fur trend.  I love … [Read more...]
