One of the more awkward aspects of having a truly large body is the overhang. Breasts and bellies sweat in those folds, and for a lot of reasons it can get both smelly and awkward. Pamela Haven of Pambras observed women going through menopause and recovering from cancer were particularly suffering, so she came up with a solution: first, her bra liner, and second, her belly liner. It helps preserve expensive bras, and in the case or larger bellies it can relieve a lot of awkward discomfort.
For full disclosure, I have not tested the products sent although I was provided with samples. 1)In the case of the bra, I just donâ€™t sweat that much beneath my breasts and the belly liner at its smallest was around five inches longer than my width. I think this is a REALLY good idea, and that Pambraâ€™s products address a problem much more significant than the whole shapewear debate: some of us with larger bodies do have chafing, etc. and this can help us preserve our clothing and perhaps even improve our health by reducing the risk of fungal infections and some of the other gross stuff thatâ€™s specific to being larger. (There is gross stuff specific to smaller bodies, too, after all.)
This, like dress tape, is one of those â€œdealing with a larger bodyâ€ secrets that Iâ€™d always wondered about, and Iâ€™m glad to know itâ€™s out there. Also, rather than hoard the comfort that these can bring, Iâ€™m going to do something I NEVER do on Fat Chic: a giveaway. Comment on this blog post with your own dressing comfort issue. Iâ€™ll choose one of the commenters to receive these excellent and much-needed products.
