Bra-blems with ThirdLove

11:46

Hi guys! Welcome back to my blog. Yay I'm finally having my holiday at least for a while before I'm facing my final-tests-weeks. Anyway MERRY CHRISTMAS!


Today I will be talking about Bra-blems. Have you guys experienced annoying situation because of your bra?


Every women I'm sure have facing the bra-blems either once or more. It is very annoying when your straps slipping down and bands riding up. I personally have experienced when my strap slipping down and it's very uncomfortable. You don't want your holiday or your day ruin because of bra-blems, right? The best way to make it comfortable is just tighten the strap so it's not going to slip down again. But you know? Maybe you haven't known the easy and simple fixes with the bra-blems. I was recently introduced to ThirdLove, it is a company that specializes in great fitting bras, and I thought it would be helpful to show you all this guide so women won't be facing the bra-blems again. Bra-blems? NO MORE!

How to put on a bra

We all know how to put on a bra -- or do we?
Here are some tips to help you achieve new bra bliss!

A tight band is the right band
Wear your new bra on the loosest hook so as it stretches, you can make it tighter.


Keep those straps happy
Tighten the straps every other month to make sure they're snug and supportive.


Try the scoop & swoop
Get your girls in the right place by gathering each breast into the cups as you pull back on the wire.

Fit issues & easy solutions


Slipping straps

When straps are giving you the slip, follow these quick and easy tips.
  1. Tighten the straps. Seems obvious, but as we wear a bra, the straps start to
    stretch out. We recommend tightening your straps every other month.
  2. If that doesn't work, it might be time to explore a different bra style. Usually Full CoverageDemi, and Convertible bras have the narrowest set straps which help to keep them on you shoulders. Balconet andPlunge bras tend to have wider set straps, so if you have narrow or sloping shoulders, the strap issue can be exaggerated with these styles. 

Band riding up

Is your band creeping up in the back? We've got your fix.
It's time to buy a smaller band size so that you have a snug fit. Remember, when you get a smaller band size, you need to go one size bigger in the cup. Example: if you're a 36C, your tighter band would be 34D . For more info, review the size chart.
You'll know you're in the right band size when you can slip two fingers underneath the back of the band. The band should be snug on the loosest hook, so when your bra stretches out you can continue to tighten it.

Straps digging in

You're not alone. This common fit issue may cause you to rip off your bra the moment you walk in the door at the end of a long day.
The straps should not be doing the heavy lifting. The bra band should be doing most of the work. Chances are, your band is too big or has stretched out to the point that you're not getting the support you deserve. Try buying one band size smaller.
Remember: When you get a smaller band size, you need to go one size bigger in the cup. Example: If you're 36C your tighter band would be 34D. For more info review the size chart.
Another tip for anyone over a D cup is to buy a style with narrower straps. These styles have straps that are centered on your shoulder so that the weight of the breast is evenly distributed. We recommend Full Coverage.

Quad-boob

This doesn't mean that you have four boobs -- but it may look that way when you're wearing a tight shirt. Don't worry, we've got you covered.
It's time to trade in for a bigger cup and give your breasts some breathing room. Go up one size in the cup. Example: If you're a 34D, trade up for a 34E. You and your breasts will breathe a sigh of relief! For more info review the size chart.

Side boob

Sometimes, your breast can spill out of the side of the cup because the cup is too small. Eliminating side spillage is easy: just size up in the cup.
Another possibility is that the band is not tight enough, causing the wire to sit on your breast. Size down in the band and up in the cup. A snug band should pull the wire back and allow your breast to sit into the cup properly. For more info review the size chart.

Cup gaping

This is a fairly common issue for women with East WestThey're Sisters Not TwinsBell of the Ball, and Skinny Minnie's. Since your breast is resting at the bottom of the cup, it leaves room at the top that creates gaping.
  1. First, try tightening the straps. Sometimes that's all you need to do.
  2. If that doesn't work, try going down a cup size. It may be that your cup is just a little too big. If you don't think that you're one whole cup size smaller, try one of our signature ½ sizes. Example: If you're usually a 34B, try a 34A½. For more info review the size chart.
  3. If your cup fits well but there's a little room at the top, try a Plunge orPush-Up style. These cups are angled and tend to be cut a little smaller to reduce gaping.

So, now you guys know what kind of bra fit best with you. If you are searching for the smarter bra design, you should definitely check this page (just click -->) SMARTER BRA DESIGN andddddd voila! You've found the right solution to your bra-blems. Have a great day!

Hi guys! It's almost a month since my last post. How are you guys? :-)
Anyway this post is gonna be my birthday post, if you guys wonder my birthday is on 2nd November. So last Monday my friends gave me a lil surprise as you can see the photo below, they are my college friends. I was given donuts which were so cute to be true and a pillow printed my photo (how cool is that!). Thanks guys xx

Angel - Shannen - Me - Stella - Stephanie - Yosca

And another one is Felli, my church friend, she gave me this cute birthday card that actually both of us like it since the very first time hahahahaha. The card itself is pretty simple just a pastel green card with some gold elements but the thing that catch our eyes is the tiny balls inside.

Life

Life.... :)

Hi people! It's been a while since my last post. Today's post will be about my own life and struggle that I wanna share a bit. I really love seeing people's instagram feeds that are look nice and even have their own characteristics by using filters. But till now I haven't found any filters that match me perfectly (and that's the problem...). It seems like I'm not consistent with my instagram feeds, not like the others. I've tried A6, S3, HB2, etc. But none of them can turn my photos out continuely looking good and I'm getting frustated about it (if you notice, I tried many ways to make a good photo but only few succeeded). 


But I don't know why when I look at this photo my boyf accidentally took, I like getting a thought of being my own self. All I see in this photo is like a message from me to me that I shouldn't care anymore of what's going on behind me, of being as good as the other, of maintaining my instagram feeds just to look lovely. I'm comfortable just being myself, posting photos I wanna share, and live the life I'm grateful for. 
I know maybe this is a warning so that I don't push myself too be like anybody else. It's happier to be ourselves! :-)

Yes, that's all I wanna share today. I hope you guys don't feel the same way like I do and you guys are thankful enough for your own life. Thank you so much for all supports and loves <3

Black is My Happy Colour

17:39

Hello people! How's your day?

I personally had a pretty good day, I went to campus this morning and had my class with the lecturer (he's known as a killer one) who got his student out because they didn't know the answer of his question...... and I was so shocked. But thank God he didn't call my name. The second lecturer is nice, he rarely get mad. And I'm so happy to have him as my lecturer for the second time (He's my lecturer too in my last semester). Yup, I think it's enough to tell about my campus life hahaha. 

By the way, this tee's statement is true. 
" Black is my happy colour. "
I'd rather buy black tee than pink, because I think black is the safest choice. Black is easy to be styled with everything because it is a neutral colour and it also makes you look slimmer :p
This tee is a new product from @rainbowroomss you should check their instagram out! You know what? You can get 3 awesome tees including this one just for Rp. 100.000!! How cool......





• OUTFIT DETAILS •
tee: @rainbowroomss
skirt: Uniqlo
hat: Topshop
shoes: H&M


Have a nice day!

Simple Style with Batman

17:22

Hello people, long time no post. How's life? Anyway what weather do you have in your country? In Indonesia it's still very very hot! And you cannot wear anything thick like jacket or parka. Whereas I really like to do layering with my outfit. But it's okay, I can wear them during rainy day ahahaha. Well, because of the hot all you need to wear is a comfy tee which can keep you cool although you do outdoor activities like the one from @amv.collections. Mine is black with gold batman symbol printed on the front. They actually have many colours but I decided to choose black and gold because I think it's a perfect match ;)


                            check their instagram: @amv.collections


Anyway I can't look to the camera, it's too glaring! hahahaha
