The “What if you’re too big for Lane Bryant” post appears to be permanently hanging in the “Top Posts & Pages” list, I swear. Yes, I am still (mostly) too fat for LB, though I do sometimes get bras and tees there (and Seanan McGuire helpfully tweeted today that it’s “buy 2, get 2 free” bra time.)
In other clothes stuff…
I’m still getting things from Gwynnie Bee. On the good side, I’m learning things like “IGIGI 5x tends to fit me” and “Kiyonna 5X doesn’t fit me”. On the bad side, some of the dry clean only items itch and several items I’ve had to hang to let the cleaner smell dissipate. Now I’m worried that I’m allergic to their cleaners. Sigh.
Inspired by Anthea Butler’s tweet about the “Ordain Women” founder‘s excommunication from the LDS church including “underwear“, I did some googling. As I am not a church member, I could not order or view the garments in the online store. However I was able to view sizing information in the “Help” on the LDS website. It appears I’m too fat for the garments available. I don’t know if it’s acceptable for LDS members to make their own.
In cheerier news, my new Elomi bra really improves my posture.
I got some comfy Keen sandals for summer.
Finally, since realizing that yes, there are ingredients in sunscreen which can make skin more sensitive in sun AND my recent “fine in shade and itchy / inflamed in the sun” experience with sunscreen, I have accepted my fate. Some short-sleeve mock turtlenecks from OneStopPlus.com should arrive soon.
