Up through college, I’d only worn badly-fitting and unsupportive bras. A decent bra-fitting trip and a decent bra later, I found myself spending hours, and then days, on the Internet trying to understand why I went through what I did. Thanks to beautiful, articulate and convincing bra bloggers around the world, I’ve been transformed. I’ve been educated. And now I’ve become a bra blogger.
The purpose of this blog is to not only reinterpret and provide my take on the things I’ve learned, but also to create new content based on my unique insights and experiences as a person who identifies herself as Chinese, as “Hong Kong-ese”, as Asian–all stereotypically having no chest. Yeah, right.
This space is for primarily bra- and body-oriented content, but I intend to feature heavily into my identity’s influence on this and other aspects of my life. In 2015, I found myself struggling a lot with those other aspects, and this became a personal space for me to write out those feelings. In late 2016, I decided to move these personal writings over to The Antelope Blog.
Today’s CurvyHK features thoughts on body image, identity, physical health, beauty, and how these ideas interact with one another.
