Reply To Ella, Regarding How Should A New CD Measure For A Bra

Hello Ella, this is Denae. Thank you for your question, by email. I am now doing a CC to the blog, on my email replies, as it may help other girls who have similar questions. But first, thank you for all your emails…requesting the location of my newest discovery of a local “replica” (designer look alike) handbag store. For others who are not close to California, and/or you don’t live or shop near a “fashion mart”…. I will be posting some photos of the bags I have purchased for myself and I will show several colors, and if any of you would like one, email me and I will ship one out to you. They generally have new bags every week, but I shop for the Classic bag for everyday in look like designer bags such as: Coco Channel, Louie, Prada, and many others. At these low replica prices, we can enjoy many wild colors and pay much less– for fun colors of red, blue, yellow, green, which I would normally not purchase. The replica prices run about $70.00 for a designer handbag, as the real bags would sell for hundreds. 
Okay, now…getting a bra that fits and is comfortable…is difficult for even the seasoned genetic women. Having the back snap ride upward will cause the cups of your bra to look un-natural and it causes the cups to “point upward”, and only padded bras stand upward when we’re 18.  The new trend, with gg’s…since the bra fitting show on Ophra…is to have a smaller band size and a much larger cup size. There was only one little problem with that. There were no stores that carried the larger size cups over a size D or Double D. Just recently, some of the better retail stores; such as Nordstrom’s are carrying the larger cup size of E.  If comfort is more important to you, than the largest cup sizes, then herewith a bra size chart for men to measure. See bottom of this blog.
 IT is important to not have your band size tight, as this causes a roll of skin under your arm  …and causes a bulge in the back of your dress or under the arm area. If this happens, herewith my suggestions.  First, try increasing your band size up.   I suggest…getting a band size that fits comfortably and does not go up in the back, but will stay down. (This is very important when purchasing a strapless bra, as it will always slip downward in the back as well as the front. Look in the mirror, and try to select a cup size by your body size and proportions… and mostly by your shoulder size. If you’re tall and thin…. I suggest you select a smaller breast size. Women’s breasts are mostly all fat.  This is why; women’s breasts get larger when they’re pregnant or when they have gained weight. If you begin looking at breast size of genetic women, in relationship to their height and weight… thin women and or tall and then women will naturally have small breasts. I occasionally will meet a genetic woman who is thin, and has larger breasts and she will always say… it is genetic in her family. Generally, until breast implants, only women with extra weight had larger breasts.  A great example is…. Dolly Parton. With her new ultra thin body, there is no way on earth…her breasts would be that large. I recently saw one of her original photos from Hee Haw when she was about 21 yrs old…and she was very short and thin, with very small breasts, probably an A cup. For a trans woman, getting clothing to fit, is often difficult; so don’t cause additional fitting problems with a blouse that will not button, due to larger cup sizes.
So, if you like large breasts, please first take a look at your body type.  Always look in a mirror and turn to one side; and cross both arms under your (breast form and bra). Your arms should cross, directly under your breast line, (for a general rule). If your cup is pointing upward, then go back to the measuring tape and get a larger band size, which will stay down better in your back and under your arms. OR try checking how high your have the straps, and let them down some. Now, turn to the side and look again. Fold your arms and see if your arms fit nicely under the bra. If that doesn’t work, try 2 or 3 higher quality brands as they have better holding fabric and styles. Lastly, try several other styles of bra. I have found molded cups with no seams look very natural and have room for breast forms. In my next article, I will discuss the different types of bras, and which breast forms will fit best into each bra style.
  Okay, herewith a measuring chart for men to select the correct bra size. This is different than the genetic girl charts. . And, Ella…let me know how this new way of measuring works out for you—as I believe you were referring to genetic girl measuring charts, and this should work much better for you.
 Girls, please email me. Your emails will not be seen by others, unless I hit publish. You can type in private or okay to publish.
Happy Memorial Day and for many of you…. going to the beach is a great femme experience so, be sure and wear sunscreen and great sunglasses to protect your eyes from sun damage. I live in an ocean resort town near Hwy One, and I am getting ready tonight for my outing to the beach tomorrow. Gosh, all the things a girl must do, to prepare for a day out from shaving my legs, to painting my toe nails, to selecting a swim suit, sun hat, flip-flops, a blouse to wear over. when it gets cool, etc etc.  I think Sarongs are great to wear, with a large straw hat and Jackie O sunglasses. If you’re new to wearing a swimsuit, try purchasing a long wrap around (sarong) and they have them in swimsuit stores, or in catalogs. I found mine in Boston Proper; you can check sarongs with swimsuits on line at
 If you live in Northern California, near the Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy One), wave if you see me. I wear large yellow or red Lilly on my wide brim hat. And, the BoardWalk has a new roller coaster, and I will be on that for sure! I will be screaming the most.
 I hope you, get out and enjoy the weather, too.
I would love to hear from all of you!! I enjoy your photos, with questions.
