Bras and Panties and Shapewear, Oh My!

I’m talking with Margaret from The Lingerie Goddess about bras and saggy post-breastfeeding boobs and panty lines and girdles (uh, I mean “shapewear”) and all that good stuff in this week’s episode of the SJ Show. I also managed to get fitted for a bra on camera because that’s always a good time. I was internally doubting my measured bra size (A C-cup? How can I be a C-cup? In my dreams!), but it all makes sense now that my Facebook page peeps have set me straight. (Not all C-cups are the same, as it’s all relative to your band size…I measured as a 30C, but was envisioning the cup size of a 36C and thinking there was no way my lil’ guys were fitting into that. But it’s all about the band size, ladies! A C-cup in a 30 band size is much smaller than a C-cup in a 36 band size. The more you know. Also, now that I’m typing this out, it all seems very rudimentary, so I apologize if you are stabbing your eyes out with a fork. Hello? Are you napping?)

(Also, my life would be a sooooo less lovely without the ladies on my Facebook page and the awesome ideas/wisdom/products they recommend. Last night I asked about favorite cookbooks for fast, simple, healthy meals, and 35+ comments later….don’t worry, I’m putting together a round up post for Friday.)

Back to boobs – if you’re looking to update your lingerie drawer, this episode might be for you. (I really want to try the seamless panties and boyshorts by Commando that are featured in the video- have you tried them?)

    Funny, the ‘saggy post breastfeeding boob’ issue did not effect me after nursing my first for over a year. I did have a bit of shrinkage though ;) Luckily it was all perky over. Let’s see how things look after this little nursling. I do love my nursing bra though! Anita underwire brand has served me very well.

    I am seriously underwear challenged. Like, seriously. But, when she held up those seamless boy shorts I could have sworn that I heard angels singing and a light from heaven shone down on them. They are what I have been in search of, but I’m not seeing where to get them. Is there a link or a brand name somewhere that I am missing?

    Very late to the party here, but I LOOOOOOVE Hanky Panky underwear. (I don’t say panties, do you?) I love the boyshorts, they are so comfy and I haven’t noticed any lines. I hear there thongs are actually comfy, but I haven’t tried them yet. I prefer my underwear on the outside of my *ss. ;-)
