Default Help please- decorated bra ideas!!!

Hi,

I'm walking the Playtex Moonwalk in 3 weeks, along with my super skinny friends. We need to find a theme to decorate our bras- desperately.

The only thing is I'm very much an apple so want to cover my stomach a bit at least and they keep coming up with stuff that will look great on a size 8 but not so much on me.

Please please please can anyone give me ideas, otherwise I'm going to be walking round London in a bad bra!!

Thanks in advance

Default Animal skins?

Clareh:

Why not tails? If you were wearing cave woman bras, how about cutting strips of animal print fabric and making tail that hang down from the waist and hide the tummy?

The other idea is just to add an animal print all around the bottom of the bra, much like the popular blouses with the empire waist.

Hope this helps.

Clareh, you were my inspiration for all this exercise. Thanks so much. I haven't lost a pound yet, but that will come I hope.

Good luck~Cate

That's what I was thinking, too. Or tulle... that gauzy stuff ... to make a semi-transparent "skirt".
Good luck!!

Or you could go belly dancer. Get strips of gold fabric and sequins etc and sew them to the bra so that they hang down a bit over your stomach. It'll look glam and hide your stomach and bellly dancers can get away with not having a flat belly. Anything oriental like that will work.

Or you could do fairy. Have fairy wings going from the back of a bra that will detract attention from your stomach and then a tutu bottom or something.

Default Hello!

Hiya Clareh

I registered with this forum but as yet havent posted!

But i just looked back on this site after a V.long time and noticed you are doing the Moonwalk this year!

So am i!

I just decorated my bra today, as i have 2 local newspapers coming round on tuesday to take pics!
OMG!
I am not exactly slim!
need to lose approx 4.5 stone!

but i have dyed mine pink(pale pink) and have pink and lilac fluffy stuff around the edges/straps, some dangly pink beading round the bottom(to try and hide a bulge or two!) and 2 butterflies on each side

I have never done any 'marathon' or anything like this before and it will be a first and a challenge!

also am prob going on my own as some people who got a place on another message board/forum seem to have disappeared lol and we were meant to be doing it together, never mind1
i am still looking forward to it and am trying to follow the training programme from walk the walk site as much as i can although have missed out on a 16 mile walk ,but am doing a 20 mile walk next saturday!

biggest walk so far was last weds- i did a 15 mile one, and thought my legs were going to drop off on the last mile home!
but stretching and a long hot bath later , i was actually fine!

How is your training going etc?
and how you finding it all?

look forward to hearing from you

Denise

Hi everyone. We now have a theme!! Thanks for all of the fab ideas (I'm still strengely loving the hawaiian coconut shells and the Wonderwoman ideas but I really don't think that the world is ready for me in those. Next year maybe.....

We are going to be going in sparkly pink cowboy hats and belly dancerish style decorated bras (with strips of tulle) I may even throw in a feather boa. I feel so much better for all of your suggestions. Do you know that if you put in Playtex Moonwalk into Google it brings up photos of Nell MacAndrew, and her fantastic six pack. Sooooo unfair (it's not like she works out daily or anything!!)

Denise- good luck with the 20 mile walk. I did 20 miles last weekend and am doing it again this one. It's hard. I'm hoping that the practice will help but if you can do 20 you can do 26 (at least that's more than Jade in the London Marathon!) Your bra sounds great!!

Thanks for all of your suggestions xx

Your bra decorations sound real cool too!
Anyway...

OMG i am on the front page (and page 3 LOL) of one of my local newspapers wearing my bra!!!
How embaressing!!! LOL
My son when he saw it -first thing he said was "look at that podgy bit!" (meaning my tummy LOL)
Oh well -what the heck ! LOl - its all for a good cause!
(i just have to phone the paper up though as they have added an extra 'e' to my charity web address DOH-typical!-they will have to correct it next week!)
Just got to wait for the other local paper now-to see what my article in there is like!

anyhow- i have scanned it and here is the link to view the article(i have put the 'page 3' write up underneath the front page pic!)
