You know those days when you just need to step out of your comfort zone a tad? I’ve been having a few too many of those lately. I am working on losing weight after health issues and medications have added a few more pounds to my body than I would like. I’ve adjusted my eating habits and am working on adding in exercise when I can, trying to walk more during the work day, etc.
That is all well and good, but if I don’t FEEL good, then I won’t look good. I needed to get out of my funk, go out on a limb, get out of my comfort zone. Enter the Mama Cassie from Made for Mermaids. When I saw the pattern, I jumped at it, went for the most daring option, and began brainstorming how I was going to keep my boobs up long enough for pictures. I looked in to boob taping. I still haven’t tried it. I’m scared for my nipples. Sooooo…post on that to come…maybe.
I ended up using a far-too-small strapless bra and a very sturdy ace bandage applied by my husband 😛 Yes…he was laughing. This is what happens when you have boobs as big as your head.
Now, I absolutely fell in love with this dress….so I needed more. I needed a mommy-and-me set! Of Course!
And Then I had to make a more casual and fun version, so I lengthened the flounce from the flounce-hack. I added length…because….boobs. Most things I make or wear are determined around if they will fit and if I can find/create an undergarment to make the clothes wearable outside of my home.
So…get out of your comfort zone, go after what you love, and try something new!!!
