Why Your Boobs Are Spilling Out Of Your Bra


Aside from not knowing where our (bra) bands should lay on our back(s) we also don’t exactly know how our breast should look inside of a bra. Sounds strange doesn’t it. But truth be told, before I became a professional bra fitter I didn’t know these things either. 

To Recap Your Bra Is made Up Of 5 Parts: 

  1. Band
  2. Straps
  3. Cups
  4. Hook & Eye Closures
  5. Gore (Bridge) 

Last month we covered everything about your bras band. In this week’s #TataTuesday Tip we are talking about the Gore of the bra or as we like to call it The Bridge! What it is,  what it does and why your boobs are spilling out of your bra! Watch & Learn! 

 

Get Bra Confidence With These Tips

Last week I was invited to a local radio station in Philly Power 99FM. I was invited to talk about the business of beauty, bras and boobies on their podcast “Beauty & The Beast.” Hosted and created by Cappucino (@Capponair) because as she puts it beauty is a beast. 

Watch now and take notes on how you too can conquer the beast and get one step closer to comfort and confidence in your bra! Because it doesn’t have to hurt!

I got this oversized jacket because it reminded me of the movie Clueless (don’t you just love that movie). At the time of purchase, (like 18+ months ago) it wasn’t exactly oversized. Fast forward to now and its a bit bigger but still just as stylish and ironically even more on trend (or haven’t you noticed that plaid is everywhere). Here’s why it works:

  1. Pushed up sleeves always look cooler! And in many cases make you look thinner, especially when your skin shows. Try this at home with an older jacket/blazer.
  2. Can be worn as an over-coat before coat season officially starts.
  3. Oversized yes, shapeless no! Curved princess seams are a girls best friend (and yes in some cases they are better than diamonds). Your jacket must have shape to it. Tailoring with great seams is just the place to start. They are usually located on the sides and backs of jackets.  The last thing you want to have is a boxy oversized anything. You want to show the curves you have and add some where there aren’t any.
  4. I added a pinstripe shirt to show you an easy way to mix patterns. The key is to make sure the colors are the same if not similar. Create a color story with your outfits and visually it will make sense.
  5. Color blocking is fading out, remember this formula: statement on top, simple on the bottom or the reverse. A good story has 1 main character and your outfit should be the same. Statement jacket, simple pumps.
