(...wondering if they make 'em in hard-to-find 38DDD...)
Why, of COURSE I look fabulous; I'm wearing a lululemon TaTa Tamer!
I'm ample chested and found I can modify a $8 bra from Walmart to fit my needs (I take the bones out) for my "work" bra. I don't do sleep bras. I find anything like a sports bra won't work for me in general (and forget those shirts with built in "bras").
For fun bras I shop pretty much exlusively from Fredericks of Hollywood honestly. They come in bigger cup sizes and there's a wide variety. For awhile these were my daily bras too but I was too hard on them to keep doing that at that price. I find them very comfortable and comparatively priced to any other big chest bra (which seem to be almost universally prohibitively expensive these days).
I used to shop at Lane Bryant quite a bit. They were great when I first discovered them! I liked their jeans. They fit me better than jeans I got at regular stores and were better quality so they lasted longer. Unfortunately, the Lane Bryant near me turned to such hoochie clothing years ago I stopped shopping there. I don't want to wear pants that show the top of my underwear or tops where my boobs or belly button are out. I haven't been there for awhile so I don't know if they ever went back to decent clothes for regular people.
That brand sounds like it made by someone with a stutter. Is that the Porky Pig lingerie line?Quote:

Does anyone have a recommendation on a good upholstery cleaner? My parents gave me a chair that they have had for at least 40 years and, although it's been re-upholstered at least twice, it needs it again. Unfortunately, I can't afford to reupholster it and even a slip-cover isn't in the budget right now. The fabric just has the usual stains from oils in skin and it looks, as my mother would say, pretty disreputable.
I wanted the chair because it's just SO well made. Really sturdy. Not like the crummy armchairs you find in the stores now.
I think it can be brought back with a little TLC, but I don't want to use a cleaning product on it that will make things worse.
Maybe you should drop by a bookstore and browse her new book "I Brake for Yard Sales"? I'm guessing you might find some very helpful hints there.
Woolite makes a good fabric cleaner.
Late to the party but I use my bissell little green machine to clean dirty furniture. Works well.
I'm going to check out the Woolite upholstery cleaner. I read a lot of recommendations for it online. Resolve is what ruined my parents' carpet, so I wouldn't ever buy one of their products.
