Musings on Bra Blogging

Sorry for neglecting you, my lovely readers…. I’ve been working on a rather exciting project, and hopefully you’ll be seeing more about that soon! For the moment, a bit of musing…

I’ve been thinking lately how I’ve been seeing a number of great new bra blogs crop up, as well as watching older ones flourish and grow (I mean, just look at this awesome list!). There are so many sizes, shapes, and personalities represented throughout all these bra blogs, and I’m continually amazed at the variety! Still, there are some “gaps” – there are very few larger-banded bloggers, for example, and not many small-bust ones (and I can’t think of any who are both!); there are also very few properly-fitted bra bloggers in the “commonly sold sizes” range of 32-38 A-DD.

So, what about you? Is your size, shape, and preference list represented in the bra blogging world? If not (or even if so), and you’ve felt the urge to write, why not start a blog?

“But I’m not blogger material!” you might say. I’ll tell you a secret – there are about a billion random reasons that I’ve thought that I’m not “bra blogger material” either:

    • I’m not “girly” or “fashion-forward” enough – I generally dislike dresses and I rarely wear makeup.


    • I don’t like wearing matching bra/underwear sets – they remind me too much of swimwear.


    • I’m not personally comfortable posting pictures of myself in lingerie online.


    • The majority of my bras are bought secondhand, and I can’t afford to buy lots of new lingerie to review.


    • I’m nerdy, not up with the latest lingerie trends, and have to stop myself from posting about how much I want a Batgirl bra (okay, so I lied earlier. I would totally wear a matching Batgirl [or any superhero/heroine] bra/underwear set).


    • I’m not good at holding myself to a regular posting schedule.


    • Sometimes I really don’t like my boobs. Or my body shape.


    • I don’t have a bunch of “connections”.


    • I’ve never been a professional bra fitter.


    • I hate shopping.


  • I don’t know how to pronounce “Ewa Michalak”.
But you know what? I realized that these excuses “reasons” are pretty silly things to keep me from blogging. Because I feel that I have something to say. Un-fashion-forward as I may feel, I have something to add to the community. All of us do, whether we love floral prints or not. There’s no magical formula or set of rules that one must adhere to in order to blog about bras (or whatever else). And if you think you have something to say, why not say it?
