Cheryl Warner: Invest In Your Chest!

Re: Cheyl Warner's fabulous new blog here:

I totally agree with the importance of a good fit! Too many times have I purchased what I thought was my size, only to find that after a few hours, I have overspill/digging in under the arms, loose band, etc…

Have you ever had a fitting experience that hasn’t gone in the following way:

1.The fitter asks which size you usually wear.
2. The fitter measures you
3. The fitter tells you “well, you’re coming up as a (e.g) 34DD but you’re obviously not”.
4. They bring in a variety of bras, one in the size you measured at, the rest in the size you usually wear!

I must admit, I’ve not found *too* much of an issue finding nice bras to fit over the past 5 years or so, but my issues are more concerning little niggly things, like the cups starting too close to the armpits, causing rubbing, the straps being far too long-let’s face it, if you’re a 28FF, you’re going to be of a petite build.
I read on a poster in a fitting room saying that this particular company fits their bras on at least 8 people before sending out to the production line. 8 is NOT enough! They need at least a few women in each SIZE before approving!

Rant over ;)

Top 30 Turmoils!

So I'm still in shock about getting into Curvy Kate's top 30 for Star In A Bra!!

Today I've been in an OK mood about it. I've even given the owner of the company where I work a strip of paper with "VOTE KELLY PARKS ON" on it!, and had him voting then and there! He was quite interested in seeing me in my lingerie to say the least! I've also been asking people to vote for me (without trying to offend anyone in the process!).

I'm getting rather intimidated by the whole thing to be honest. As anyone who knows me will agree, I'm not the most extrovert woman around, and I'm fighting desperately with myself not to just stop campaigning and curl up in bed instead.

I have very few friends and not much confidence, so it's pretty hard for me to get votes, especially since people who see my pictures must think I absolutely ooze confidence and love myself! See? Who'd have thought I'm actually sat here alone, feeling quite vulnerable!

The above lingerie set was from La Senza, if anyone is wondering!

I've had a couple of compliments, but nothing like what the other girls are getting. I think I'd be better off not looking at Curvy Kate's Facebook wall! I do keep getting random men sending me messages, which is not out of the ordinary, I'm just getting more now!! I just link them to my voting page on Facebook and send them on their merry way!!

So if you're reading this, please vote for me on facebook and on
