Lingerie Figure Types (Tomima's Blog posted Feb 2009): "The lingerie industry has come up with six figure types that they feel captures every woman.

In my next six postings, I’m going to talk about each of these figure types. They are the pear shape, apple shape, column shape, the hourglass shape, the almost hourglass shape and the cornet shape."

Spacer Foam and the T-shirt bra: "A new lingerie term has popped up recently. The term "spacer foam" is being used when describing some new t-shirt or contour bras. Currently several bras on the market use this spacer foam as the fabric in their seamless bras. So, what is it?"

Blogroll additions: I've added Tomima's Blog for to the blogroll because she is interesting and provides information about the industry while talking about everyday topics.
