Head to etsy or your nearest market and have a look at some of the leather-thong-based necklaces, or simple pendants on chains; maybe there will be something there that you find suitably feminine but can also pass as neutral if you need it to.


I'll look into that, but I'm planning on making myself a pendant within the next nine weeks (or two, I know you end up with a product from the casting class, not sure about the beginner's fabrication one).

The one I want to make is... decidedly not something I'd wear outside of my clothes, though.

So yeah, I might end up heading to Etsy after all :P

So many choices. Fashion is hard!

I like that design. It would make a great tattoo.

Thanks! It totally would. I really like it too, but it's not exactly something I want to be flashing around everywhere. If I get the courage to wear it, it's going under my shirt.

@ sungura:
Spoiler:
I have a Paragard, and while blood definitely makes a star appearance on 1-2 days, before the blood and after the blood, stringy, brown vessel-y things and clots play a pretty important starring role. And my IUD's finally settled, I think - I'm now back to normal length, normal volume periods, just with a different distribution.
It's not the 12 hours of bleeding I had on the NuvaRing - literally I could time it to the half hour. Oh, it's Thursday and 11 a.m., should put a pantyliner in, will start spotting before noon! - but I also like having my normal sex drive. Plus, not needing to worry about it for 10-12 years? Awesome.


Also, on the button shirt thing, for anyone in the US with access to a Sears, the apostrophe line has a button up called "the essential" that I can actually wear a medium in, instead of needing to go to a L-XL for boob coverage and then being baggy/too long everywhere else. The buttons stop mid-way up my cleavage, but with a cami underneath it looks professional, and actually is flattering.

You might want to buy some belts. I always find that wearing a belt at my waist (my thinnest point) helps create an hourglass figure and eliminate the pregnant look that some loose clothes can make. :lol:

Re: Fitted shirts-- I love button ups so much. My problem with them is that while they do sometimes allow for boobs (SOMETIMES), they never allow for my stomach. Most of the ones I've found are built for completely flat stomachs. As my stomach is not and will never be flat, I have to size way up to avoid the buttons pulling.

Also, I love the waist-belt! It looks really cute. Though I don't mind the pregnant look either, since that's just what my body naturally looks like and I try to avoid feeling like I need to hide that.

Hello Woman Thread!

I have a question (questions, actually) about sugaring... specifically for my armpit. I don't want to bother with legs or bikini area as the weather's getting colder and I'm not going to be exposing those areas anyway. I've heard sugaring is less painful than waxing and more permanent than shaving... but I'm a bit confused about how it actually works. My local drug store sells "body sugar" in units of 140ml (bottle? box? no clue what the container is like as I'm browsing online right now). So if I want to do sugaring, I buy it and... ?! Do I need some sort of strip to pull the hair off (IS that how sugaring works? I have no idea) ? Or do I only have to purchase the "body sugar"?
Thanks!

Okay remember when I posted about my role this year in the murder mystery? Well this is what I came up with. THe skirt does have 2 pockets so I can hide a flask or two (since I'm supposed to be a drunk with a history of roudiness, theft, and prostitution and can't keep out of jail haha) I think this works, yeah? :) I like it anyway. Gonna see if I can find some yellow or green? tights but I'm kinda liking the bare leg look too...thoughts?

wonderful, garish, and amazing all at once. I wish I had that kind of wardrobe, lol... well, at least the shirt.

the way you are dressed just screams troublemaker 8) and I mean that in the nicest possible way :)
The colour combinations are impressive

IMHO, I'd stick with the bare legged look. The tights would just be overkill. You'd look too much like someone who just jumped into a bucket of tye-dyed paint.

I think "body sugar" sounds more like an exfoliant for scrubbing your skin with while you shower, but I don't know anything about sugaring to remove hair.

Yep, that's what I thought at first too, but there's a description and it specifically says the sugar is for hair removal...

Have you tried googling the specific brand for reviews/instructions? That's what I always do when I'm unsure about a purchase. Some reviewers even go so far as to create instructional YouTube videos but that seems less likely in the care of armpit hair removal...

Purchase + Knowledge, apparently. Given it specifically mentions that getting the consistency right is hard, it may be difficult to do at first, and you may end up making several different batches trying to figure it out. I'd suggest even trying it at a salon or something first, but apparently it's difficult to find one that actually does it, and not just some sugar/wax combination.

@Sungura: Faaaabulous. But actually, I'd go for the tights. Maybe I'm skewed from living in a college town, but right now to my eyes that outfit is only barely tipping the scales of trashiness very slightly - tights is what would really push it into true tastelessness.

Yeah, runs in the stockings would be a characteristic touch. Maybe go for smeared lipstick, too - applied as the night goes on and you imbibe more deeply from your flasks?

For an extra touch of trashy keep the flask in your cleavage and not the skirt pockets. Also, temporary tattoo.

Hm...third month on my new pill. I still haven't had any breakthrough bleeding (yay!), but I'm having an especially heavy period this month. Nothing too intense, I just had to use one extra tampon today than I usually would. I'm just glad I had an extra one with me. Still no effect on the acne. Hard to say yet whether it's really affected the length, especially with this weird one. I'm going to keep with this one for a few more months to see if its effects are still in progress.

Same here. I immediately thought "well that looks pretty normal...". I think some torn-up fishnets would be lovely... particularly colored ones if you want to head towards a rebellious punk look. Mess around a bit with your hair (poofy ponytail?) and heavy makeup, and that outfit is pitch-perfect.
A good pun is its own reword.

Strange thing from this morning. Last week I just could not find my sea sponge tampon (near the end of the week). No big deal. I found it this morning.
Spoiler:
In my vagina.

So it was in there for like a week. And the only thing that happened was a stronger smell, but not a bad or unusual one. I had sex, did all my normal life stuff. Everything is fine.
I forgot that sponges are sort of built for that. My natural flora just spread to the sponge too. So everything is fine. Except I am apparently forgetful enough to lose a sponge in my body for a week (almost). It does explain why the end of Shark Week was so strange. I was not 'bleeding', but I could squeeze out blood when I went to the bathroom. Cause I was wringing out my sponge.

Weird.
Moral: the sponges are so comfortable you might forget about them.
I want to get to a place where I am neither conforming nor rebelling but simply being.

Two lady rants:

1. My two months of Yasmin (the lower-dose Pill my lovely new doctor gave me for free because she had free samples of them in her office) have run out, and I can't afford to buy the same brand and formulation regularly because they cost a whopping $80 per month. So I went back on my old BC, and within 2 days, a mere 2 days, *poof*, libido disappears again. Knew the Yasmin was a good idea, though it didn't put me back at my pre-Pill libido levels, but had hoped that some of the libido loss and regain might have been somehow psychosomatic, and now I'm beginning to feel almost completely sure that it is not. When she prescribed the Yasmin, the doctor was all, "See how you like it - maybe you'll find that it's worth the money." Well, that's just dandy - even if the Lad pays half of it, we still really can't afford an expense like that.

2. Gah, lipstick should not smell like Clag glue. Especially when the sample didn't.

Ouch. Not to be preachy, but have you looked into getting an IUD instead? Even if you don't have any help to pay for it, the whole procedure would be less than a year of Yaz pills at that rate... and if you get a non-hormonal IUD, you have no libido side effects to worry about.

Sorry if this is unwelcome advice.

I'm ok with receiving any and all advice. And I will be looking into the IUD, though the new doc seemed reluctant to discuss it as an option; she pretty much skipped right over it, saying something along the lines of, "We tend to only give those to women who've already had kids", which, well, yeah, doctors do like covering their arses in terms of liability, but I'm pretty sure that is not the standard response of all medical practitioners in this fine country.

My doctor didn't even ask if I had kids before she gave me the IUD. I guess she (hopefully) was doing her job, and read the extensive health questionnaire they made me fill out, so she knew that I hadn't had any pregnancies. It didn't seem to be an issue.

The general consensus with IUDs seems to be that finding an understanding doctor is half the battle, so keep asking. I used to be on Yasmin until my migranes meant I had to stop taking the Pill, and it made my shark weeks much more bearable as well - they were lighter and it completely stopped the cramping. If it weren't for the migrant-blood-clot-worry thing I would probably still be on it. Sigh.

What about the generic of Yasmin? Ocella, I think it's called? I would imagine it would be substantially cheaper... You've probably already looked into that, though.

Hello, woman thread, I need some advice again.

I'm going out with a friend tomorrow, shopping. I want to get flared jeans, hair clips, ribbons, etc.

And makeup to cover my beard shadow.

Which would be fine, if either my friend or I knew anything about makeup.

So, I guess my question is: if neither of us knows anything about makeup, should we bother trying to get it? Or should I wait until someone more experienced can come with us? I think what I'm looking for is foundation. Do I just get one that matches my skin tone, or are there other qualities I should look for?

I'm sorry to keep asking these basic questions, but again, I'm kind of stepping into a new world, and there is... a lot I don't know about it.

It's pleasant, but sort of overwhelming at first :P

You don't need to know anything about makeup to buy some. Just buy something inexpensive so if it turns out wrong for you, you can try something else. I don't know anything about makeup, I always just eyeball the shade when it comes to foundation. With 2 pairs of eyes I'm sure you guys will come up with something that's close enough to your skin color.

I recommend getting a liquid foundation and use it as the base (apply using fingers or triangular makeup sponges, they're cheap and keep your hands cleaner), then get a powdered foundation (with a large brush) to brush over the liquid. That way it sets the color in your face and it won't melt off if you sweat.
