Bralets Should Be Banned!


I bought a couple of bralets almost 2 months ago when I was still tubby, to inspire me to lose weight. I've seen photos of girls wearing cropped bustiers on the web and I thought they looked absolutely adorable! Now that I'm fit to wear one, I found out that I don't have the right body type for this piece of clothing. I hate skinny people even more! Why do they look great in almost everything they wear, while I have the tendency to look like a middle aged harlot if I don't choose my clothes carefully? Am I going to be stuck forever in cutesy, ├╝ber feminine, princessy dresses?


I was already fully dressed, on my way out to get my friend a birthday present, when I saw myself in the mirror. I did a double take and realized I looked borderline OBSCENE.

Scratch that. I looked like a half-starved cougar on the prowl or a philanthropist about to breastfeed the entire nation. Depends on the angle.

Regardless, I still camwhored prior to changing into a boring outfit, so I can show off my now-defined obliques (Abdominal fat is stubborn.  I worked hard for these 2 cuts! They deserve to be seen).


Below is a side by side comparison of myself today and 7 weeks ago. My, what a difference 8 kgs. make! I'm currently on a high protein diet, plus supplements. I still religiously do cardio and weight lifting. I'm no longer shedding the lbs. In fact, I'm starting to gain weight... muscle weight that is. My goal is to have Salma Hayek's body (ca. 1996. Check it out here.). I know it's close to impossible but a girl can dream. I even intend to pray very hard and keep on sacrificing virgins every full moon. I want it THAT bad.

A snippet of a recent conversation with my husband:

him: Baby... I need to tell you something.

me: Yes. Go on.

him: Baby... uhm... your boobs are as big as your head.

me:  %&$#?@!

He's a charmer, isn't he?

  2. In my 20s I was a slim but curvy college teacher in a top tier university. One day I decided to wear a sleeveless blouse to work and forgot my blazer in the faculty room. In less than an hour, the teacher-cops sent me warnings for being too provocative. Note, that blouse came up to my neck. I asked my co-worker who regularly wore low necklines over her flat chest and she told me that she never got a warning for being too provocative. Oh well... I love my boobs and at the risk of sounding a little to lesbian-ish, yours are lovely too! hehe :D

  19. I seldom compliment other women on their body, but I must say that you're smokin' hot! I want to get a bralet too! I'm almost embarrassed to say that I never knew that's what they're called...bralets :)

  20. Your before, your after. Girrrl, I wish I had your body!! But, I understand what it's like to have those little things you want to change about yourself. Love, love, LOVE the platforms, and many congratulations on the obliques!

  21. I like curves in women, but yours is rocking. AAAAAAHHHH, I'm also on a diet but I'm pretty far from being consistent on my regime kaasar. I wish I have more control on foods. hahahaha.

  24. Nice "obliques". I'm anti-bralets as well, for reasons opposite yours. I'm just not "gifted" with that. :D

  25. mabrook for the abs :) keep it up xoxo

  26. Buuuuut it looks great on you! Plus, your boobs are just fine. I find them sexy--but not in a romantic way. Just in a, I'm-jeeluz-of-yer-boobies kind of way.

    PS
    I'm a new follower! I love your photos and everything about this blog. Gaaaah! And your boobies too.

  28. Woman, you look great. I think the high-waisted skirt keeps you from looking like a hooker. Did you get to go to the party in that outfit?

    ReplyDelete
  29. In my personal opinion, you look super mega cute in the picture on the right, but that's just my opinion, and of course your body is your body to do with as you please. Congratulations on the change. It's always nice to see your work paying off!

I love cuppiecakes, by the way!
