Wednesday April 26, 2017 - Interesting change this morning.

Last Friday I posted about my rapid breast growth over the past 10 months. I can now tell when I am gong thru a growth spurt. I get this sensitivity from my nipple area down in a straight line to a small circular area at the base of my chest. They become very sore for a day or two.

Well, this morning I woke up and got out of bed to go to the bathroom. As I got up, I felt the weight of my breasts pulling downward. I never felt that before. Sometimes during the sensitive time, I feel movement but never this "heaviness".

While in the bathroom, I understood, while woman with large breasts would have back problems.

I decided to put on a bra before I got back in the bed. Putting on the bra, brought needed relieve from that heaviness. I am back in the bed and feel much better.

I am wondering, if I am going to have to start wearing a bra at night? Is wearing a bra at night good or bad for you.

Below is some research I found on this issue. I am have to find some bras or tops with a bra shelve to wear at night.

Is Sleeping In A Bra Good Or Bad For You?

Unsurprisingly, there is a lot of contention around the notion of sleeping in a bra. While some women instantly recoil at the idea (a very uncomfortable suggestion, according to a few ladies in our office), others claim the extra support will prevent sagging and keep things looking, well, up.

Tuesday April 25, 2017 - Finding your correct bra size

Most woman do not know their correct bra size. You can go to a store and be fitted by a knowledgeable clerk or you can try doing it yourself.

With my growing breasts due to HRT, I have been using a measuring tape in an attempt to find the right bra size. I have followed that up by trying on bras at the store until I found a bra that I felt looked and fit well.

Below is a nice video to help find the correct bra size or at least a good starting point. Below the video is a link to a bra calculator web site that will determine your bra size based on your measurements.

Monday April 24, 2017 - Plus-size Trans model, Loves herself and Landed a major fashion contract

The first ever plus-size trans model to land a major fashion contract is set to be part of a campaign with “full LGBT representation.” Shay Neary.

 The 28-year-old, who lives in New York, is now modelling for plus-size fashion label Yours Clothing’s spring and summer lines. Speaking to Bustle, the model said: “From what [brand executive Rosie Middleton] told me, they most definitely want to use me in the fall for possibly a more diverse collection. “One where they pull out a full LGBT representation.”

 In the meanwhile, Neary is filling a vital gap in the output of Yours Clothing, which caters for sizes 16 to 36.

“They have a very large trans clientele,” she explained, “and they get a lot of questions in their customer service box about how to get the shape and figure of a woman.” She praised the brand for taking on a campaign with a plus-size trans model, saying:“They’re not just doing it for the ticket. “They’re doing it because they genuinely understand their consumer.”

 And she had some advice for others going through what she has struggled with.

“I come from an older generation of trans people, where you were fearful to be spotted for being trans,” she said. “I focused on passability.

Now, what I want to tell trans [people] is just be yourself. Whatever comes along with that, be yourself. “You don’t have to hit either side of the [gender] margin, and your style can represent that. If you want to put on a dress and a blazer, you rock that.” Writing in Yours Clothing’s style guide, she added: “Sometimes finding yourself takes a long time. “

Transitioning teaches us to become ourselves. But we sometimes forget who we were. “There are days where I don’t wear makeup and wear relaxed clothing. I don’t look like my normal fem-bot self. THAT’S OK!” she told customers. “We are constantly changing, so you aren’t meant to always look the same. Get comfortable with the not so pretty, and the confidence will start to blossom. “You’ve got to love yourself beyond the facade of beauty.”
