Thanks to all who entered the Boosaurus Blog Contest and Giveaway – you guys are amazing! I’m announcing the winners for Part 2 of the contest (the Random Drawing) today so you guys wouldn’t have to wait till the end of the week, but the winners for Part 1 will be announced by sometime this weekend (it’ll take me at least that long to read over all the amazing entries and choose a few winners!).
Without further ado, here are the Part 2 Winners and their responses, chosen through a completely random drawing:
1. A custom garter from Bows Before Hose – Eileen K
2. A free online bra fitting session with Beautiful Bosom – Toodalookatie
3. A signed copy of Elisabeth Dale’s book bOObs: A Guide to Your Girls – Jennifer Evans
4. A signed copy of the comic book Wapsi Square Volume 1 by Paul Taylor – AJ
5. A goody basket from Linda’s Online – Criss
Congrats, ladies!! Be on the lookout for an email from me!
I truly enjoyed reading all of your comments and responses here. For those interested in statistics (like me), here’s a little breakdown of what commenters pegged as “the most difficult item of clothing [besides bras] to find”:
– 21 of you said shirts (specifically button-up shirts and dress shirts/blouses)
–19 of you said dresses (specifically non-stretchy and vintage dresses)
–16 of the commenters said pants/trousers (jeans, dress pants, and shorts)
–5 of you said shoes (specifically dress shoes or boots)
–4 of you pointed out swimsuits
–4 commenters said skirts (pencil skirts in particular)
–2 said panties/briefs
–1 commenter said jackets/blazers
–1 commenter said garter belts, and finally,
–1 commenter said dance leotards
I found the results quite interesting – I guess I maybe expected it to skew even more toward tops, but it’s nice to know that others struggle with things like shoes and skirts as well! I threw together a little list of sources that address where to find some of the clothing items mentioned – if anyone else has additional tips or sources to share, please do!
-Bust-Friendly Dresses Roundup
-List of Bust-Friendly Clothing (tops and dresses) from Thin and Curvy
-Suggestions for Fuller Bums (curve-friendly jeans and more) from SweetNothings
-A Hip Situation (several suggestions for finding or altering pants) from Braless in Brasil
-Most of the shops on the Bra Online Shopping List also stock swimsuits, but the sizing is generally a bit more limited.
-In regards to nice-casual shirts and dresses, I consistently recommend Urkye and BiuBiu (see my reviews here)
-Regarding shoes, I have fallen arches and have found that SAS shoes, while not the most stylish footwear in the land, have given me comfort, support, and no pain (hey, sounds familiar!). I also have found flip-flops from Crocs (don’t hate!) to be a comfy necessity for me in hot weather, as I can’t wear regular flat sandals or flip-flops.
Have any suggestions to add? I’d love to hear them! Stay tuned for the announcement of the Part 1 winners in the coming week, and congrats to the winners of Part 2!! 🙂
