Every Woman should Know – How To Buy The Best Bra For You

This is something I really do have a problem with. Finding someone who Knows how to measure you properly. It  is a tough one. Every retailer that sells Bras should make sure they have an expert on board to do this job. The Cost of a good Bra requires the help of someone who knows what they are doing.  That’s my opinion anyway. I don’t know how many bras I have bought and never worn as I hate the fit or the look of them. It is a plus for the second-hand clothing stores as that is where they go. I do not waste space with an ugly uncomfortable bra.

A study conducted by the Swiss lingerie company Triumph, approximately 64 percent of women are wearing the wrong bra size.

Here is some helpful advice on this matter.

  1. Choose Support Over Comfort

Expert and owner of Linda’s Bra Salons Linda Becker said it’s important to choose support over perceived comfort when shopping for bras. Bra support should come from the band, not the straps. They should fit snuggly across your back, not tight so you have the roll over look.

2.  Never Assume Your Size, Even When Measured

Reevaluate your size at least once a year. Remember your body changes every year. Cup and band sizes aren’t the same across all brands. Don’t worry about the size, care about how it feels and fits. The perfect fit is really about trial and error until you find the best that suits you. A good consultant will help you do that.

3.  Buy New Bras Every Nine Months — At Least

According to Glamour’s Executive Fashion Editor Suze Yalof Schwartz. We should be replacing our bras every nine months. If you keep them for longer, Schwartz says they’ll lose their elasticity, and therefore their effectiveness.

4.  The Hooks Are There For A Reason

Always try on your bra with the least tight band setting. Remember you will use the rest of the hook settings as the bra ages and loses its stretch.

5. Go For The Best Cup Shape For Your Body

New York-based style blogger and YouTuber Jalisa reminded like in clothing there are different Bra cuts and breast shapes. A Demi works great for the small busted girl where a full coverage bra suits the larger busted figures as they do not need the padding. Again it is trial and error and a patient polite consultant.

6. Scrutinize The Fit

To know what to look for in a well-fitting bra is so important.  Check that the bra cups lie smooth with no wrinkles, that the center of the bra lies flat against the breast bone, and that the back of the bra is even with the front (instead of hiking up in the middle). Does not do these 3 things then keep looking and trying on.

7.  It Pays To Pay More

Higher quality the bra materials, the better the bra will be at supporting us. That is going to mean you are going to have to pay more.  Remember a high quality bra is going to be well constructed and fit better than the cheaper ones. Remember they are going to have to support the motion and the weight of those ‘Boobies’. TJ’s and Marshall’s have been suggested for purchasing high quality brands. Be prepared to be spending the day shopping for the perfect bra and you will never regret it. It will make all the difference to the look of your outfit and your shape.

Did You Know – 01/18/2016 – All About Paper Clips

Unknown

Fact One

A paperclip is a piece of steel wire which has been bent into the shape of two almost-complete loops. Pieces of paper can be inserted between the loops and held together. Ingenious!

Fact Two

The design of the paperclip familiar today has never been patented. It is not known for sure who invented it or where it was invented. What is known was that paper clips with the same design were in production in Britain in the 1870s where it was made by the Gem Manufacturing Company Ltd, which suggests – but doesn’t prove – that they may have been invented there. The Gem paperclip, as it became known, was introduced to America in 1892. It went on to become the most common paperclip in use all over the world.

Fact Three

The first patent for the design of a clip that could hold paper together was granted to Samuel B. Fay in the United States in 1867. His invention was actually intended to hold tickets to fabric, and although it could also be used as a clip for paper, it is very different from the paper clip used today. He is therefore NOT the inventor of the paperclip, contrary to popular belief. Below is what Fay’s clip looked like.

Fay's paper clip

Vaaler's paper clipFact Four

It was also widely believed that the paperclip was invented in Norway and a giant paperclip stands outside a business college in Oslo to mark this fact! Johan Vaaler, an inventor, designed a paperclip in 1899 which was patented in Germany and the USA in 1901. However his design, pictured to the left, was impractical and was never put into production. Even so, Vaaler later became credited as the inventor of the paperclip when his patent was discovered sometime in the 1920s by a Norweigan engineer working in Germany. He documented his findings, not realising that Vaaler’s paperclip was different to the “Gem” style one in common use, and the information that the paperclip was a Norweigan invention found its way into dictionaries and encylopedias in the years following the Second World War, despite being inaccurate!

Fact Five

The Swedish word for a paper clip is “gem”.

Fact Six

During the Second World War, wearing a paperclip could have got you into serious trouble. The people living in countries under Nazi German occupation were forbidden from wearing badges or pins depicting national symbols. The paperclip, a seemingly meaningless piece of stationery, became used as a symbol of unity due to the fact that it is used for binding things together. Wearing paperclips became banned once the Germans cottoned on to the reasons for them being worn.

After the war, it was believed that Norweigans wore paper clips during the war as a sign of national pride because it was a Norweigan invention. In fact, the information that the paper clip was a Norweigan invention, although incorrect, wasn’t even widely known during the war. People just wore paper clips to symbolise unity and solidarity.  

Fact Seven

The paperclip is widely used as the symbol for an attachment in most email services.

Fact EightClippy

Clippy was an animated paperclip that used to appear in Microsoft Office products to offer help. He made his first appearance in Office 97 and last appearance in Office 2003. He was most famous for tapping the inside of the monitor when he appeared and regularly saying “It looks like you’re writing a letter.” Oh, the memories!

If you miss Clippy and need him to help you with Microsoft’s newer versions of Office, you can download Ribbon Hero 2: Clippy’s Second Chance from here! http://www.ribbonhero.com/

Fact Nine

Project Paperclip was an American operation to fly German scientists out of Germany and over to the USA after the Second World War. The Americans wanted to make use of the scientific and engineering intellect and expertise of the Germans, and to ensure that they didn’t fall into the hands of the Soviet Union. One of them, Wernher von Braun, was a rocket scientist who would assist the Americans with developing the rockets that would eventually take people to the Moon. Von Braun also worked on ideas for manned missions to Mars.

Fact Ten

Kyle Macdonald from Canada managed to swap a red paperclip for a house by completing a series of online trades, swapping each item for something of a higher value. He started by swapping his paperclip for a fish-shaped pen, which was then swapped for a door knob, and then a barbecue, and so on. His project gained publicity and the items given in exchange for previous items became more and more valuable and unique, until Kyle was eventually able to complete his final exchange and achieve his goal, when he traded a role in a film (Donna on Demand) for a house in the town of Kipling in Saskatchewan, Canada. All from one red paperclip. More information about Kyle’s project is available here: http://oneredpaperclip.blogspot.co.uk/

2.When sea water freezes into sea ice, it releases its salt and becomes a brinicle, also known as ‘The Icy Finger of Death’
These ice stalactites are created under sea ice when cold, saline water is introduced to an area of ocean water. At the time of its creation, a brinicle resembles a pipe of ice reaching down from the underside of a layer of sea ice.
As the sea water freezes, it pushes out impurities, including salt. This makes the water surrounding the pipe more saline, and more dense, so it starts to sink. As the dense water flows down, some of it freezes and creates the finger-like shape that’s characteristic of the brinicle.

Family Fingerprint Ornament

This is a great, easy idea. Make a nice gift or tree ornament, wall hanging, paperweight. You could do it with the imprint of a baby’s foot or hand, that would be cute.

The instructions don’t say but I assume you press the dough consistency to what ever shape you would like then press your fingerprints into it. Don’t forget to make the thread hook.

“We only ever see the one type of body celebrated in the media and advertising,” she said.

“You don’t see any bodies that may have stretch marks and we don’t see that celebrated.

“That’s what most women look like and we can be sexy, confident women in our evolving bodies.
