I’m excited to (finally) announce the sponsors/prizes for my upcoming Blog Contest/Giveaway!
Boosaurus recently reached 100,000 pageviews, and I figured that this was as good an excuse as any to celebrate. 🙂 This blog really started out as just a place to vent my frustrations and document my successes in the bra-world, but in the past approximately 9 months since I decided to start focusing more specifically on bra and busty-fashion related things, it’s grown into something that’s been useful and helpful to others – and I think that’s pretty cool! This contest is a thank-you to my readers as much as anything – you guys are awesome, and I know I’ve learned just as much from you as anything you’ve managed to glean from your readings here.
Another reason why I decided that a contest was in order was that this gives me an opportunity to introduce and plug some great companies and people to you all. Every single company or person who offered something to the prize pool is awesome, and I’m truly blown away by the generosity that they showed to help little old me give a thank-you to you guys. 🙂 I’ll be linking to any Facebook or Twitter pages that the companies have – I’ve found it’s really the best way to keep up-to-date with news, companies, and what the different brands are planning on offering!
The details of how to enter the contest will be upcoming within the next few days, but for now, without further ado, check out the great prizes that will be offered by some truly awesome companies!
Even though I’m sized out of the brand currently, I’ve been in love with the Parfait line ever since I first laid eyes on it. Parfait is offering their lovely Charlotte Padded Bra & High Waist Brief set in Peach/Black, as well as the Honey Babydoll & Bikini in Petal Pink. Major bra lust here! Both come in a 30-40 D-G size range.

Love Claudette only launched a year ago (you can read more about the company on The Breast Life), but their range is already pretty impressive (with plans to expand to K cups next year!), and the colors they offer are definitely eye-catching!

I’m really loving the vintage coloring of this bra and the lovely, delicate sheerness.

I’ve been a reader of the webcomic Wapsi Square since I was about 15, and it remains at the top of my list of favorite comics to this day. The story is so rich and involved that I can only echo what author Paul Taylor says when he describes it as “a slice of supernatural life.” Busty heroine Monica has to deal not only with the supernatural and her inner demons, but also her own struggles with “everyday” things like finding a bra that fits.
Paul Taylor has contributed a new copy of Comic Book 1 in the series, with a signed sketch on the inside cover.
And there you have it! Are you excited yet?? 😀 Stay tuned for how you can try your luck at winning any of these awesome prizes…
