About

This blog is mostly dedicated to fit issues and clothes options for very specific body type: true hourglass. I also write about bras. I have some basic training as a pattern maker (sewing and pattern making were amongst skills that any good soviet girl should acquire, I wasn’t a good girl, but I learnt how to sew and create patterns from scratch because it was useful). I read a lot about clothes and style, I have been dealing with dressing my very curvy (but not plus size) body more than 15 years and I’m still learning. I hope that my experience could be useful for other girls. A little bit more about me here.

PS If you notice some grammar mistakes or wrong semantic feel free to tell me about it. My English is far from perfect, so I will be grateful for any suggestions which help me to improve it.

    It’s good that you write about the hourglass body shape. I wasted years going on a wild goose chase with full bust writers.

    They showed photos of fat celebrities but said they were thin.

    They said the thin ladies did not have the curves. But actually, the bigger ladies lose their waist and look less curvaceous.

    When their breasts got saggier and saggier, they said their breasts were growing. I thought they meant puberty.

    They said to find our bra size, we had to measure the underbust tight. Even if we got red marks and it was hard to breathe. But it turns out that bras cause sagging.

    When you meet people, they look at your body but they do not focus on your bust.

    Imogen at Inside Out Style gives good advice on how to dress an hourglass figure.

      Hi there )

      Actually yes, most of the time body with high BMI has less curves, but there are some exceptions (and usually if slim hourglass puts weight her body shape remains or gets even more exaggerated, but only 8% of women are true hourglass, most women loose their curves).

      Problem with sagging is rather complex and bras are not the main culprit here. Gravity, large changes in size (this sadly includes changes due to pregnancy and breastfeeding) are main factors causing it and how well you body is fighting them mainly depends on your DNA. Small sizes are often better off without bras (at least without bras with underwires), larger sizes especially on smaller frames need support (they are simply totally uncomfortable otherwise, they cannot run or even walk fast, turn fast or drive over pothole without pain).

      Problem with bras is that they either do their job or leave no marks. If you wear a bra just for aesthetics then you can get away with rather loose band (but way too loose is still uncomfortable, because it moves, being there, done that), if you need real support it means tight fit. Full bust bloggers usually write for girls and women who need support just to be able to move without pain. For them tradeoff is reasonable.

        Malica, thank you for this explanation. Women like us, with slender hourglass figure who need full bust clothing but do not need bras to lift, must be a small percentage. Thank you God that I can finally stop my neverending search for a comfortable bra that does not exist!

    Dear Malica,

    It’s me, Guest. It looks like this is the only way to contact you so I’ll write a private message here. I hope you’re safe and well during this pandemic. I’m so glad I found this blog because I have an X shape hourglass figure but I don’t relate to a lot of what full bust bloggers say. I discovered a lot of answers on your blog. For example, a lot of full bust bloggers have underbust measurement about the same as waist measurement. Like you, I wear about a 32″ bra band for breathing space and have a nipped-in waist. Now I have the knowledge to see what’s going on. I prefer to look for information for X shape hourglass figure now instead of full bust.

    I have an update. It turns out that I have medical problems that prevented me from finishing puberty. On top of that, I have high stress hormones that make me put on fat in bad places. These body conditions made it hard for me to relate in certain ways to the blogs. I missed an entire stage of puberty. Everything has changed now that I know.

    Please, would you delete the comments I made on this About page? To prove that the comments were from me, I think I used this e-mail address. i_am_positively_alive@yahoo.com
    I deleted it a while ago. I have the gmail address now.

    Thank you, Malica. I want you to know I appreciate it.
    Blessings. (Oh, please delete this message too, as it’s meant to be private between me and you.)
