While at BlogHer, I met the oh-so-funny Carson Kressley at Saturday evening’s NIKON party. I have always loved Carson’s personality and passion for fashion. His “on-air” persona is someone that I just adore, and I was so happy to see that same man in person, for real.
NIKON allowed some bloggers to do interviews with Carson throughout the evening. I was so excited to be one of the bloggers who got to sit with him and pick his brain about fashion and beauty and the latest trends. Believe me, this man knows his stuff. He didn’t miss a beat. There were 5 of us sitting around drilling questions at him and his answers kept us laughing and truly wanting more!
One of my girlfriends there waved her hands in front of her breasts and asked Carson his best advice for slenderizing/minimizing the bust region.
Carson laughed and asked, “Do you know how many women want what you have!?” (Um. Yes. I do.) 😉
His advice was different from what I thought he was going to say. I thought he was going to recommend colors or certain fabrics that can give the illusion of a slimmer look. But he didn’t.
He answered, “Find a good bra that brings your bust out front and keeps ‘them’ in place.” My friend smiled and asked if he was serious. He was.
Carson explained that so often women with a bigger bust region aren’t wearing good bras. The bras aren’t giving them a good enough hold. He said you need to really find that perfect bra to keep them right in front, in place and held. He advised that it’s not so much about trying to minimize them, but really about getting that secure hold. The bust region appears bigger when its just “hanging out.” Honestly, it makes a lot of sense. Hold them securely in place. I have the complete opposite problem, so I know the difficulty in finding a comfortable bra that gives the illusion of “something.” Not to mention, most women don’t know their true bra size… regardless of how big or small their breasts actually are.
Carson… thanks for the tip!
Funny. Witty. Adorable. Fashionable. And engaging. That’s what I felt for Carson. Just love him!
