Boosaurus Blog Contest/Giveaway!

So, have you checked out the awesome contributors? Are you ready to hear the contest details? Drumroll please! The Boosaurus Blog Contest/Giveaway has begun!

This contest has Two Parts, and you may enter either or both!

Part 1:

Simply email in your answer to this question: "Describe your dream bra."
Sound like a very open-ended question? It's meant to be! I frequently hear (and read) women talking about what doesn't work for them, how hard it is to find something they like even if they find their size, how bras they love never come in their size, etc. Well, if you could have your ideal bra - no restrictions - what would it be like? How would it represent you and your personality? What fitting troubles would it overcome? What would the color/pattern/material be like? What shape would it give you? What superpowers would it bestow upon you? Feel free to incorporate any or all (or none) of these. Just tell me exactly what your ideal bra would be like - taking your specific needs, preferences, and personality into account! Stay simple, or go nuts!

And don't limit yourself to prose - if you want to write a poem about it, that's cool, too! Want to draw a picture instead? Sure! (Just include at least a brief description of what makes this bra ideal for you). There's no maximum or minimum word limit here.

Email your entries to boosaurus@gmail.com - please note that you must email your entry for this part of the contest (don't leave it in a comment or a Facebook message) for it to count! Also, it would be helpful if you included your usual size in order to best sort out the prizes :)

Entries will be judged based on creativity, style, and ability to convey thoughts in an engaging way. There will be multiple winners. The prizes for this part of the contest are:

-A Charlotte bra and panty set in Peach/Black from Parfait by Affinitas (sizes 30-40 D-G)
-A Honey Babydoll in pink from Parfait by Affinitas (sizes 30-40 D-G)
-A Curvy Kate bra and panty set of choice (sizes 28-40 D-K)
-A Jude bra and panty set from Cleo by Panache (sizes 28-38 D-G)
-An American-Tan Dessous bra and panty set from Claudette (sizes 30-38 A-G)
-A 20% off code for Butterfly Collection Lingerie
-A sports bra from Enell
-A 50GBP gift voucher to Large Cup Lingerie
-A $25 gift voucher to A Sophisticated Pair

(Read more about these awesome prizes and sponsors here!)

Part 2:

This part is a random drawing! Yay! Just leave a brief comment telling me what the single most difficult item of clothing (besides bras) for you to find is, along with a valid email address (or other form of contact info)and your name will be entered to win one of these sweet prizes:

If you're already following on Twitter and/or Facebook, that still counts - just remind me in your comment, and be sure to include a valid email regardless so I can contact you if you've won :)

There will be five winners for this part of the contest! Winners will be chosen through random drawing.


And now for Some Rules!
-The contest deadline is September 16th, and winners will be announced within a week following that date.

  1. This is probably a pretty common one, but finding non-stretch-fabric dresses is a nightmare. According to size charts, my bust is a 14/16 and my waist is a 4/6. I used to try to get a size somewhere in the middle, but it was just baggy on my waist and totally cut into and flattened my chest. I'm hoping to get some clothing that actually fits my body at some point, but I keep changing sizes...

    (PS: I liked you on facebook.)

  2. Blouses for sure! Of course, this is directly related to the big cup small band issue. I can't find blouses that don't pull across the chest and flap around about the waist. Luckily, I've started to dabble in some tailoring and I'm slowly learning how to alter my blouses to actually fit me properly.

  3. My problem is quite common as well - non-stretchy shirts with buttons. I love buttons, they are cute and add something interesting to my simple style, but often I have to choose between something too big and nothing. I also have to use lots of safety pins to avoid gaps between buttons.

  5. Fitted T-shirts/tank top are super hard to find. Most wind up being too short in the front because my chest is so big it makes the shirt come up in the front and look like a belly shirt.

  6. Anything with a waist, but specially garter belts. Brands seem to think people with a waist below 24” don’t exist, it’s a like with bra bands but worse, because in a bra I can actually find 28 & 26 sizes. I’m a stocking girl so it is a piece of lingerie that I wear every day, and it pisses me off that I’m sized out of all the nice brands (Kiss Me Deadly, Cervin, Rago etc). In my dream world all lingerie sets would have a perfectly fitting matching garter belt with 6 straps & metal clips.

  7. The hardest thing to find is button down shirts. Such an easy go to for work wear, but when you have a 32HH bra size and are an extreme hourglass, its nearly impossible. Its hard enough to find knit shirts that don't look like tents. bari.ewing@gmail.com

  8. It is extremely difficult to find a good pair of jeans! I'm short and curvy, but not as curvy as "curvy cut" jeans usually require. I have a high waist, and there's a good 10+ inches between my waist and my hip measurements... but because my waist is so high, "curvy cut" jeans tend to cut in way too quickly and give me a muffin top! Buying straighter cuts, though, results in me flashing my bum to people whenever I bend over. Inseam length is also an issue, since regular is too long and short is too short!

  9. Dresses! No matter what dress I try on either my boobs pop out, get crushed, or they fit too tight, or make me look like a balloon due to my small waist. I long for a dress that looks cute, and fits me well.

  10. It's a tie between pants and shirts. I have large hips and thighs, I'm halfway between needing regular length jeans and tall length ones, and if the cut isn't right, I look unbalanced and awful. Even if I buy from Lane Bryant, they'll fit kind of weird if I don't find the exact perfect fit and size, and they're not cheap jeans either.

    For shirts, I have a long torso, big boobs, and big arms. I can't wear regular babydoll t-shirts because they're too short. Most women's shirts are, actually. When the tunic shirt was in (is it still in?), it was a blessing for me, because these long shirts actually fit like regular shirts for me. Men's shirts just aren't very flattering on me, even if I wear a smaller size that doesn't drape over my curves as much. Just...ugh.

    Shopping, man. I hate it.

  11. the most difficult? trousers. they are almost always too thigh in thighs :-/ and if they (by accident) fit, the waist is too lose, so it's constant compromise and not even one pair that fits perfectly :-/
    rzabba@gmail.com
    (though I would just love to win the bra ;-), so two entries)

    ReplyDelete
  12. A perfect dress! Even those breast-friendly not always are perfectly fit :(. I have trouble finding something for my medium breast (for brands like H&M, Zara etc. still too big), thin waist (too thin, apparently) and not too curvy butt - so I want my dress to pretend I have something there :D). My email address is basilisk.the.cute@gmail.com :). I liked you on Facebook, too. :)))

  13. My problem is with tops. It's hard to find dressy shirts that fit right since I'm bust size 12ish and the rest is size 6 or so. I also try to wear casual clothes that yet don't look scandalous due to excessive cleavage or tightness. It's really hard to find something that fits all my criteria!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Leather jacket. I need waist 5 sizes smaller then bust and hips are 3 sizes bigger then waist, so almost nothing fits. And size that corresponds with my bust measurements doesn't fit, because it's way too big in the back and has not enough space in the bust, so I have to size up even more. Shirts and dresses go to the seamstress without saying. I'm already used to it. But leather jacket, alas! It's not so easy to have it taken in. Sad.

  15. High heel shoes! I want to have some sexy shoes, but they're hard to find because of my arches (or lack of them). I'm short, and paired with the second most difficult thing for me to find (skinny jeans), I'd have that sexy confidence, without having to keep a pair of flats in my car! Bonus points for animal print shoes!

    third runner up? A vintage pin up bikini! Can the high waisted style hurry up and be sold widely?

  16. Dress shoes are hard to find- my feet are flat and I tend to over-pronate.

  17. I am not a skinny curvy girl, but I love this blog and Christine!
    The hardest piece of clothing to shop for is JEANS for me. My thighs are disproportionately large (thank you Aunt for pointing that out), and waistbands never seem to fit if I choose a size that fits my thighs.

  19. Single most difficult piece of clothing to buy besides bras? I'd say that would be jeans. I can rarely find jeans that fit both butt and thighs. *high fives atthepatisserie* Everything else is fairly easy since I wear yoga pants and t-shirts to work (very casual).

  20. The hardest article of clothing for me to find is bottoms (including jeans, dress pants, and shorts). I have wide wide hips, a large booty, but short legs. So while I may wear a size 20 in the waist, I probably wear a 15 in length. But it's okay, I like my weird little legs :) (all US sizes, btw).

  21. Definitely shirts! I have huge boobs and a small waist for my size and then big hips, so although shirts would look amazing if they could accentuate my hourglass figure - they just don't! I find it so hard to wear shirts because I HAVE to wear a vest or tee underneath or you can see my bra where the buttons are pulling open or I have to wear it open and the fit of the shirt isn't really seen. It's frustrating to see so many girls wearing cute shirts with jeans (another difficult item to find to fit my hips/thighs/calves/bum!) and I can't even button mine up!

  22. Congratulations on reaching such a fantastic milestone - I am sure this is just the first of many :-) xx

    The item of clothing I find most difficult to fit are jeans and trousers. My figure is 46-30-47 so I really don't stand a chance of finding anything on the high street to fit properly. One day I will give in and get some custom made jeans!

  23. Any button down shirt. Can't find one that doesn't gape and fits my back and shoulder.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Briefs. Bras at least come in different cup/back sizes so there's hope (even though I do have a hard to find size!) but having a big butt, long torso, and slim hips makes underwear shopping impossible. Briefs are always too big in the hips, the crouch is too wide, the rise is too low and the butt coverage is too little, and the thighs are way too big. All this adds together= constantly wedgie, ugh! Sizing up just makes all the fit issues worst (even bigger thigh holes=bigger chance of wedgie). That doesn't even get into the problem of "high-waisted" bottoms never coming up nearly high enough!

    Mostly, I can't wait for my first Knickrocker order to come. :D

  25. High waisted Jeans! Is it a crime for a younger curvier girl to want a classic nice looking pair of high waisted jeans that don't turn your butt into a pancake or have some terrible acid wash or detailing? Also it would be nice to see jeans with a little more structure rather than all elastic. :)

  26. What great questions, Christine. I give myself so much heartache trying to find boob-friendly vintage and vintage-style (i.e. Modcloth) dresses. PUG dresses definitely help fill this gap, but they're all so sexy that I would only wear them to go out!

    ReplyDelete
  27. single most difficult item?? button-up shirts that fit. i'm not a tiny-waisted girl, but it's still smaller than my chest; finding something that buttons over my bosom and doesn't make me look like i'm wearing a bag is tough! i usually end up in men's shirts, just so they close.....

    The article of clothing that I find the greatest amount of distress with when shopping for would have to be dresses and/or shirts with pre-determined breast "cups." (Sorry, my ability to describe clothing is a bit lacking.) I have three beautiful empire waist scarf dresses that I adore, but the chest area is far too small and I still have yet to find a proper bra to wear with them.

  30. hello
    the hardest thing to find ever are swimming costumes!
    some company's seem to think that big busted girls don't go swimming!
    they either don't go up to your size or are way too revealing. i have to settle for sized costumes (12,14 ect.) i'm a 34H so i have to wear a 18/20 bikini top which don't fit properly on the cup and are too big around the back.
    they really are the hardest item of clothing to find!

  31. Shirts -_-

    Having big boobs doesn't mean I can't have a small waist, and having a small waist doesn't mean I can't have big boobs. And the pepperberry ones are so expensive! D:

  32. Summer dresses! All my friends have wardrobes full of light, flowy, spaghetti strap dresses and I have to make do with thick straped, frumpy ones. They either sit across my bust or show playboy bunny-esque cleavage levels. Not happy :(

  33. Finding tight-fitting dresses can be nigh on impossible for me. I'm 19 so I love a good bodycon dress to emphasise my curves, but with measurements of 37-26-42, any dress that fits my hips is far too big for my waist and generally too big for my bust, and any dress that fits my waist and bust stretches horrendously over my hips; sometimes even going see-through! I'm also taller than average (5"7, so I would hardly say 'tall') so dresses are always short on me, sometimes inappropriately so!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have to agree with some of the ladies on here, dress shopping is the worst. Any dress I find to fit my bust is just too baggy on me. Dresses tht fit everywhere else just show way too much clevage or look awkward with a line thats supposed to fit under my breasts instead running directly across them. Dress shopping is a nightmare!

  35. Leotards! I'm a dancer, and it's impossible to find a leotard that covers your bust, lets you wear a sports bra underneath it (or has reasonable support), and doesn't cover you up to your neck. I'm 35-25-36, and no "professional" dancer is supposed to have curves. One piece swimwear for beach days or jumping off the high-dive is also a problem.
    I'd also like to find a good pair of wide-width dress shoes.

  36. Bathing suits. I can't stand bikinis, and one-pieces are never flattering on me ever.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have a hard time finding shorts that don't ride up my bum. My legs are super long (I'm 6') so I have to find longer than normal shorts. My butt is pretty big so I also have to find shorts that are big enough for that but tight enough at the waist.

  38. Mine is shirts -_-! As a nursing first time mom, I discovered none of my “old” shirts fit due to growing almost 3 cup sizes after having my son, button front, t-shirt, or otherwise. If I found a button front shirt that buttoned without gaping open, it was too big in the shoulders and arms or was so loose in the stomach that it looked like I was still wearing maternity clothes. Almost all t-shirts and tank tops had the same problem, if they were big enough in the chest, they were too big in the shoulders and arms and I looked like I was wearing a guy’s shirt. Princess-seamed/A-line shirts were a bit better as long as they were made of stretchy material, if they weren’t stretchy, they were too fitted to be able to pull my shirt up easily to nurse. When I become pregnant with our 2nd baby, I discovered another woe – maternity shirts, other than t-shirts, that also can be nursing shirts are also almost impossible to find! I nursed my son till he turned 1, when I was 5 months pregnant, and pretty much just wore maternity t-shirts the whole time, even to church.

  39. Other than bras it would have to be skirts. I am definitely hour glass shaped so I cannot wear the style of skirts that are popular now. They HAVE to fit on my ACTAUL waist not my hips!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Of course it will have to be dresses. Although shirts are difficult they can be made to somehow fit, finding dresses that will fit bust, waist and hip is impossible.

    I have resorted to wearing mostly separates and having special occasion dresses tailormade.

  41. Tee shirts. Regular ones make me look like a can of biscuits. A v-neck (with y cleavage) looks like I'm trying to show off. Where's the middle ground?!

  42. (That should say "with MY cleavage.") :-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Not very original, I have to say fitted dresses. Some Bravissimo stuff used to fit, before the Pepperberry era, but most size guides, even from bust-friendly retailers, assume that your hips are larger than your bust. Mine are about 8 inches smaller... all I can say is thank god for separates and stretch! Other than that: jackets and blazers: on top of the bust/waist/hips measurements, you have to factor in the shoulder width and sleeves length.

  44. Shirts are the most difficult for me to find. I have large boobs and a small waist so anything loose and flowy tents right off of my boobs and makes me look heavy. Then shirts that are form-fitting and even the slightest bit low-cut make it seem like I'm trying to show off way more cleavage than I am intending to. T-shirts give me no shape so I don't like to wear them. I just can't win with shirts!

  45. The hardest thing for me to find is nice dresses! I had the hardest time picking homecoming/prom dresses. I'm not a flashy girl, so it was hard to find something demure, but still pretty, that fit both my boobs and my waist, without being too long for my 5'1" self.

  46. Pencil skirts. There is a 14-inch difference between my waist and hips, and I have NEVER found a pencil skirt that could even slightly handle that.

    Also, I am short, so what is just-below-the-knee on other women hits me mid-calf and looks ridiculous. I am seriously considering having one custom-made. Because the other side of having a 14-inch difference between my waist and hips is that the right pencil skirt would look AWESOME.

  47. The hardest thing for me to find is a SWIMSUIT! I really want to try bikinis, but the suits in the states are terrible for a large bust. Wearing a 40J certainly has me limited. I did not discover Curvy Kate swimsuits until this swim season was almost over :-(

    I also have a problem with buying swimsuit sets (that come with a top and a bottom). I have a super full tummy and my bottoms often need to be two sizes bigger than the tops.

  48. Shirts that are in between casual and dressy--not a t-shirt, but not for the office, more like a shirt I'd wear going to a nice dinner or something. I like shirts that are basic with an elegant twist and all the things in fashion for that don't seem to work for me! Shapeless is shapeless, peter pan collar is..well, you know. Tight at the hem is a no go...The list goes on.

  50. I think the next hardest item to search for besides bras would be shoes. Much like bras, they must be in the right size, and yet must compliment you depending on which outfit you wear. Besides the just the size, they have to be the right style, the right shape for your feet that are stable enough for you to walk on, be it heels or sneakers.

  51. Pants. I can never find anything that fits my small waist and not-so-small butt and thighs at the same time. There's usually a good several inch gap at the waist for anything that feels good on the rest of me. Jeans are the worst offenders here, but dress pants and trousers aren't very nice to me, either.

  52. As most said tight dresses are hard. Even if my boobs fit my hips mostly don't. I'd like a nice tight-fitting, not-made-from-jersey dress that fits boobs and hips while being tight around the waist.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Dress pants and khakis are difficult for me to find. They're either too short in the legs or too big in the waist. I'm 5'8" and 120 pounds, and for some reason most manufacturers in my price range for pants think the taller you are the wider you are! :P

  54. Button up shirts. They are impossible.

  55. Dresses are definitely the hardest item of clothing to find. If they fit my waist, they are tiny on my bust, and if they fit my bust, they swim on my waist.

  56. Dresses I love that fit me well can be quite a challenge for me. As a busty girl with a distinctive style (and a budget to boot) it takes some serious shopping to find one that's just right.

  58. My common issues are two things if I don't include bras, one is jeans that aren't too long. Petite length still are too long for my legs and my waist is high even for a short woman. The other issue are button up shirts, for one to fit comfortable across my boobs means it's too bulky everywhere else or the arms are too long. My arms and legs are proportionate for my height meaning short and short with a long torso. I'm sure there's another item on the list, I probably avoid it light the plague though...

    The articles that I find most difficult to find seem to be the same as a great many other women! Definitely #1 is tops, tops that will accomodate a larger than average rack (32G) without looking frumpy or looking like I'm trying to smuggle melons out of the market. I haven't worn a button-down top in YEARS. Lower cut tops that would look cute on a smaller bust look downright slutty on me. I don't want to hide my girls, but I also don't want to look like.... well, y'know. It would be nice to find a line of tops that are cut to accomodate a larget chest on a smaller body.

  60. Hardest item to find, besides bras? Dresses. I live in them but finding ones that are the right length is... challenging. I "liked" you on Facebook. As a bonus, button up shirts.

  61. Hey! Just for fun, I wanna go with something non-boob-related. Shoes! Sure, tops and dresses are a pain too, but that's what EVERYONE has been saying. I'm a 7.5W, so shopping online at some of my favourite stores (torrid, hot topic(I hate HT's bra and swimwear size range, grrrrr...)), not to mention every high end shoe site out there, quite difficult. xD I like you on Facebook, but I've no Twitter account with which to follow or retweet you.

  62. Blouses. I love frills and chiffon and silk and lace--but nothing ever fits the way it should. I usually have to buy 2-3 sizes up just to get it to fasten over my bust. Fortunately, my sewing skills are such that I can sometimes alter things to fit me. But I shouldn't have to! I wish growing up that someone had pulled me aside just to say, "Hey, don't worry about it. There's nothing wrong with you. You're not alone."

  63. Dresses! I can't wear loose styles that have enough room for my bust without looking much larger than I am, and although I love sheath dresses, they rarely have enough room in the top. I also love full skirted dresses that are fitted on top, but they're an absolute nightmare to find.

    Liked on facebook!

  65. I would say the most difficult item for me to find is pants. Followed by button up blouses in a close second.

  66. Shirts, any kind of tops! Like everyone else. They always fit so weird.

    Just the other day, my mom said to me "Oh my goodness! You look so... DIFFERENT in that shirt!" :B

    haha thanks mom

  67. I'm going to hop in and agree that non-stretch dresses are always tough for me. When we talked about it last week, I didn't realize that I always get dresses with stretch in them- and for a reason! I don't think I own anything without stretch in it. My starchy button-up work shirt, for example, is a nightmare and requires me to wear a minimizer just to literally button it. :(

  68. I would have to say dresses are pretty difficult to buy for myself. I find that the waist-hip-bust ratio never works out perfectly and I'm either left far too tight around the boobs or too baggy around the waist. Always a frustrating one!

  71. Buttoned shirts are the most difficult clothing item to fit me. A close second is summer dresses.

  73. Swimsuit, for sure! Bikini selection is terrible at most retailers (years ago before I started doing more shopping online). There might be a lot of selection online, but something as risky as a swimsuit I just have to try on!
    Post-baby I'll only shop for tankinis. My last swimsuit was merely the best one that I could find and I still had to sacrifice the bottoms to get some of the matching fabric and make the bust more secure.

    I liked you on Facebook and followed you on Twitter a long time ago (c: But I did tweet about the contest just now, too!
