On Thursday this week, I was watching the newest installment of the Storage Wars franchise off DVR (Storage Wars: New York) and a commercial came on for a new Lifetime reality show. Normally I wouldn’t give a second look to what comes on Lifetime, but this really caught my interest. On the screen was an attractive young woman saying she could tell someone’s bra size just by looking at them.
So I set my DVR that night to catch “Double Divas” and on Friday when I got home from my first full week of work in a month, I sat back with a huge cup of hot cocoa and watched three half-hour episodes of Double Divas. By the time I went to bed my sides hurt from laughing, and that hasn’t happened … since … forever.
The above link has a short Q&A with the two owners of Livi Rae Lingerie in Atlanta and the stars of this reality show.
In the Q&A, Cynthia mentions the Oprah segment about bra fit and letting her viewers know bras came bigger than a “D” caused their shop to be slammed with people, hour long waits and people driving from other states to be fitted. (Now you know how they ended up with a reality show.)
From the photo, you can see that they have the selection and if you watch just one 30-minute episode, you’ll know they have the expertise.
In the first of the three episodes I watched, Cynthia Richards took up the challenge of making a bra for the woman with the largest breasts in the world, Miss Annie Hawkins-Turner (aka Norma Stitz). For the first eight minutes I thought this was going to turn into every other sensationalized “reality” show, but I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that Cynthia Richards is a talented designer and experienced seamstress.
Set your DVR and like me, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
