My C-Cups Nay Runneth Over

You can laugh all you like Madonna, but I still want to squeeze that almost non-existent arse of yours.
Coz when I returned from the Melbourne Cup Day vintage fashion parade last Tuesday, you were my inspiration to strip down and don my 1970s le smoking-style wool suit.
I couldn't help it - the voices were screaming your name and I caved.

I snaffled this original 1970s suit, complete with satin collar and trouser side-stripes, from eBay a few months ago.
I'm pretty sure the seller had a bad case of "oh no what the feck have I done?" after I bought it coz she turned out to be a bit of a biatch.
But ya know, I think you've gotta be a god damn, fecking awesome bitch to wear this suit and if my prosti La Dama could do my eye make up for me, I reckon I could melt anyone into soup with my stink-eye look.

Except for one (or two) things.
I bought a 34C cup 1950s longline cotton bra from eBay thinking I could wear it as a top all this summer, but there's this one problem of a sad lack of boobage.
What the hell?
How come I fit all my other modern bras in that size?
Am I missing something?  
Well yes, I know that quite clearly I'm missing some titties to fill the cups, but did they measure lingerie differently 50 years ago?
I mean a 34C is a 34C right?

I still reckon it's a feck-off awesome suit tho' and I can always wear my 1950s strapless black lace bustier.

Never mind all that boobage bollocks, I'm still going to wear it as a top and all those other bitches can go stick it.
See what happens when you channel Madonna?
All the swearing and attitude comes out.
God I love her.

An' I love all you gorgeous biatches!!!
Desiree xoxoxoxo

I have some great Madge bras. Modern sizing, retro look. What Katie Did makes bras that shape your boobs into perfect cones! :)

That necklace is fantastic! I'm drooling a little.

Madame G said...

You look Smokin' in that suit! I've got a bullet bra too that's supposed to fit me. It doesn't. But I did get a nice wee pair of cone-shaped fillers to sort the problem! x

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

You make a better Madonna than Madonna does these days! It's a beautiful beautiful suit, you look GAW-JUS!

Kitty said...

And I love YOU right back, too bad that sexy man snapped you up, or there could be some serious frottage of the sapphic variety goin' on around here!!!! I always find vintage bras are smaller than their modern equivalents. Have you got your hot sticks yet??

Psycho Sue- Sew Misunderstood said...

you are fucking HOT as HELL! I would shake in my panties if you walked up to me!

VainGlorySinner said...

You make a wonderful Madonna!

Love the suit! I used to have a pair of trousers almost exactly like them when I was younger! They had the shiny satin black stripe down the side of the legs too. I always thought they reminded me of geeky band trousers but they look excellent on you!

I think everyone in the 50s must have either stuffed their bullet bras or had super pointy boobs! x

Style Sud-Est said...

Hey, Hey, hey, you look, how do you say it... fecking hot in this suit! God you are smokinnnnn in that frock girl, ouh, ouh! forget the booby thing who cares!

Desiree, I love your feature on Miss P's blog, love your attitude and love what you said to your colleague about getting old, bastard he was!
I would have said the same to the fecker!

Thanks for your comment on my blog!

Love you ! Ariane xxxx

La Dama said...

Te amo Desireesita..I love your Marlene Diedrich suit amor!
I would love to paint your beautiful big eyes. you did a great job, smokey eyeshadow is my fave. forget Madonna has shit on you. the bra needed those bra pads that make your chi chis pointy. I need to get me some too for my bullet bra. I adorar your curly gorgeous locks.

Krista said...

FRIGGIN BAM BADA BOOM, dang mama you are looking FIERCE in this suit. I mean I'm kinda cowering at your command of the suit, and your body is BANGIN!!!!!! Madonna has nada on you!

Pointy banana boobs meh, never did much for me, I prefer my boobs a bit smooched and overflowing :)

I love the curls in your hair and the second to the last photo is so sexy smug ~ I want you on my FRIG so I can look at that face every morning as I stumble around my kitchen in the dark cursing to the world making coffee.

You are gorgeous. I hope married life is treating you well and that you guys are "spending lots of quality time together" :) Ya gotta love love baby!

pastcaring said...

You look so hot, who cares whether the C cups are full or not?!
That suit is fabulous, I adore the necklace, and as always you are the BEST poser! I agree with Krista, that second to last pic of you is a stunner.
I know you were channelling Madonna, but it makes me think of Bianca Jagger's white trouser suit and Studio 54. Show us your moves, Desiree!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Catherine said...

You are very beautiful! much better than Madonna)

Tomye said...

You are a trip Desiree! I love this look and am looking for something myself only with tails. You can always buy some boobs to fill out that sweet little cami. You are class and style squared! -T

Vix said...

You're dressed so much like my Mum used to when she went to posh do's it's uncanny. She much preferred a man's dinner suit, skimpy top and a velvet cummerbund & bow tie.
I love it, those trousers fit you like a freaking dream and you could always pad out those cups with chicken fillets, you gorgeous creature. xxx

Fashionistable said...

You totally crack me up :).

I love the Le Smoking suit. Very chic, and the big bra cups make it just a wee bit naughty.

LA Lynn's said...

I saw your feature on Sacramento Blog & now I am a new STALKER/FOLLOWER!!!! I absolutely ADORE your sense of style & humor... I think I will be reading your blog for the rest of the night! :))

Clothing sizes have changed dramaticly over the decades. In vintage clothing I wear like a size 20. In today's clothing I'm about a 10 or a 12 (American). It would make sense that bras have changed too, and then there's the fact that bra sizing is not consistent anyway. I'm a "G" cup in some French brands, a "DDD" in some English brands, and I shrink down to "DD" or "D" in American brands. Go figure.

Vintage Sweetheart said...

Seriously what can't you wear??? Your suit looks amazing and you definitely have the attitude to pull it off!

Dash said...

Desiree you rock that suit girl, I love 'Le Smoking'.

Apologies for being such a terrible blogger, I have just been through your previous posts...you got MARRIED!

Many congratulations to you and your gorgeous man, you were a stunning bride I adored your wedding outfit.

joshylola said...

Amazing shoes.I follow your blog.Regards

RETRO REVA said...

Me thinks your cup(s) runneth over!
I cannot fit vintage either. The slips usually are more 'generous' in the cup for some reason, but in orfer to fit a skirt or dress of vintage, I must buy a size 16 usually to go round my belly!
Gorgeous suit my love!!!!!

Helga! said...


The Style Crone said...

How amazing you are! Pure glamour!

triskelos said...

Such a bummer - I have some troubles with vintage sizing too. I'm Brittish size 10-12, but I know for sure that when it comes to vintage dresses, 14 can be a bit tight.
But that bra still looks great. I'd love to have one of my own - it makes one pretty and really sexy top)
