Long Live Estee Lauder and Bras that Fit

Before I had a child, I was not old. Now I am. Granted, I turned 30 while pregnant, and that may have a little to do with it. Also, the weight changes. I, at least, am convinced that pre-baby I could walk out of the house with wet hair and little make-up and still look good for most of the day. Granted, I had a better body back then. That may have helped.
But, ladies, never under estimate the power of a good bra and some under eye concealer. Sure, it costs a little, but aren't we worth it? So, here are my tips:
  1. Estee Lauder Perfectionist is everything that it claims to be. Add a little bit of concealer and you will look 29 again.
  2. Yes, a good bra really does make your clothes look better.

I don't know about you, but mine are pricey (I am a bit bigger up top, and I am not bragging). I had hoped my old ones, which were new pre-baby, would fit well again eventually. At this point, they were nearly 3 years old, still not fitting well...time to take the plunger and get re-measured. It was well worth the price. I feel better, I look smaller, and I can wear a lot of old shirts that weren't fitting well in the too-small bras. So, it saved me money in the long run.

Now, back to the long run...

Perfectionist, huh? It really works? I have never spent more than $15 on eye/face stuff... Maybe it is time.

It works so well! Of course, I went from using pretty much nothing...except maybe a diaper wipe here and there. Probably anything woudl have been a drastic improvement!

Have you found a good running bra? I am having trouble finding one with good support. I've tried the frog bra from Title 9, but the next time I bought on (same size, same company) it just didn't fit well.

Thank you for your question.I should seriously get paid to test large size sports bras. I have tried so many of them. I have also harrassed Under Armour for some time to make large size bras, but to no avail.
The only sports bras I ever run these days are Champion. The tag is unreadable on the one I have with me but it is a basic large size sports bra with an inner cup system. I have worn it for years and it has held up well. I have about a dozen just like it. I even wore one during labor (and I was a size H, but I found one!), did not nurse, and had NO breast pain after giving birth. But in terms of running, this bra comes in a heavy cotton that can chafe during long runs. Add some aquafor under the bra line and you are good to go. It now comes in a dry wick material as well. This link here has quite a few: http://www.championcatalog.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce/ExecMacro/category/category.d2w/report?catname=2010000000&ENTRY_TAG=GOOGLC&cm_ven=Paid%20Search&cm_cat=Google&cm_pla=Sports%20Bras%20Champion&cm_ite=champion%20sports%20bras
