Less is More!

Well, hello ladies and gentlemen! It has seriously been a long time since I have been so moved to post on my blog. But here I am on Father's Day (Happy Day to my dad) and thought it was time to talk about an issue that men and women have been disagreeing about for years. It seems men are all for it and women roll their eyes. What does Jerry say on Seinfeld, looking at cleavage is like looking at the sun. You can't stare at it long, it's too risky. You get a sense of it then you look away.

Ladies seriously, a little bit of cleavage goes a long way. Now, I know that many of you have ta-ta's that are much bigger than mine (B to C cup, if you must know) and even wearing a tank top with a regular bra makes you look like bodacious Betty. Several of my friends have to wear a couple of bras when working out. So I am not speaking those of you that have a large chest and know how to use it (meaning wearing the appropriate bra, and not wearing the plunging neckline if you are over a D cup).

Nope, I am talking about those ladies that choose not to keep it classy and are sporting the ridiculous cleavage at places like the office, a funeral, church, etc. Ladies seriously, cover it up in those arenas. Do you really think it is professional to have men staring at your chest and not your face when you are presenting next year's budget or mourning the loss of Uncle Bob? Here is the ladies seriously rule of thumb...necklines that dip below the top of your boobs are NOT cool in conservative settings including some weddings, dinner parties with future in laws, business meetings, presenting to a volunteer organization, the office, church, grandma and grandpa's 50th wedding anniversary party, etc.

Now, I have been known to sport some cleavage from time to time and hey, it's OK in certain settings, and it can be very sexy when done appropriately. And as long as you are wearing a bra and the girls are up and out, have at it, be confident, and yeah let the men look, if that is what you want. All I am saying is look in the mirror and be smart about what you see, if you are seeing more than 25% of your boobs, it is not OK. And ladies seriously, if you have an enhanced chest or a natural chest that is large and you are sporting some major cleavage, you are not allowed to be offended if men (or women for that matter) stare. Guess what, they are men and that is what they do.

Speaking of enhancements...I am not making any type of statement about plastic surgery, what you choose to do your body is your business. My only hope is that you are making those decisions based on your own best interest and not anyone else's, but other than that, have it. But ladies seriously, know this, if you were previously a B cup and now you are pushing a D cup, people WILL notice and men WILL stare and you have to be prepared for that. Cute little Kate Hudson had a very small chest and had surgery to enhanced them to a B-small C and she was in Us and People magazine for weeks...

So ladies seriously, cover it up! Be smart and classy with your body. A little bit of skin goes a long way. So this next week, I am headed to lovely Orlando, FL for the big Gamma Phi Beta Convention, I really hope I don't have many ladies seriously moments while there...sisters! please keep it classy.

Cheers and CIAO BELLAS!
