Pinup style boudoir photography from Milestone Images

Angela, aka. New York based wedding photographer Milestone Images, is becoming a very well-known name around these OBB parts.

Strapless unmentionables: A “minus size” round up

I loved reading Andrea’s advice for finding plus size long line bras. However, I happen to be at the opposite end of that spectrum. After seeing a few comments requesting a “minus size” round up, I thought it was time for me to step in and represent those of us who are not as, erm “well-endowed.” (FYI this post has pictures of ladies in their undergarments so it’s probably NSFW.)

I do recommend having a professional fitting if you haven’t had one done recently — you might be surprised (I know I was when I had it done). Don’t be afraid to size up and size down in both the cups and the bands. Every brand sizes differently! And if you are buying online make sure to double check the return policy!
