I’m so honored: today Eternal*Voyageur featured How to Find a Bra That Fits in her blog, Venusian*Glow! Venusian*Glow holds a special place in my heart, as it was the preliminary post on Shallow Breasts that really helped me figure out my breast shape and find bras that fit me. It was seriously that exact post that got me excited about bra fitting (it’s easier to become passionate about a topic that you understand, heh). I was able to give back later by being a breast shape example in a few of her later posts.
As she mentions in her review, she gets warm fuzzies when she sees phrases she coined, such as “bra matrix”, in a wider audience. And rightfully so! She has a fantastic way with words; she’s been the one to make bra fitting click for so many people. When I watch someone skim the book, they almost always pause on the page with the bra matrix, say “Bra matrix, huh,” and smile.
In case you hadn’t inferred it yet, I consider myself to have shallow breasts. In the years (oh my, has it been years?) since Eternal*Voyageur first explained shallow breasts, I’ve learned so much about my shape. It’s not an incredibly common shape in the scheme of things, but I wanted so badly to talk about it in my book! It’s so beyond the scope of my little guide, though, that it would feel out of place and disjointed. Particularly because I know relatively little about the other, more common shapes. “Here’s five pages about shallow breasts. Now here’s two paragraphs each on projected breasts, narrow breasts, wide breasts, and pendulous breasts.”
She has some very kind words to say about How to Find a Bra That Fits, so make sure you go over to Venusian*Glow and check out her review. I hope you’ll poke around her blog a little; maybe you’ll learn a bit about your shape, too!
