Here’s the best way I know to figure out what your bra size is: go to the most expensive department store around. Find the tiniest, oldest lady with the coldest hands and the thickest accent in the lingerie department, and get her to fit you. Accept whatever size she says you are because she would know, having seen every kind of boob under the sun. Still have to try on any new style of bra to make sure it fits properly.
At least that’s worked for me. But the day draws closer to when the powers of modern science and programming may actually be leveraged against the more-than-a-century-old practice of getting fitted for a bra.
There are a few questions that been following me around ever since ever since we decided to do The Mary Sue, even before we knew it would be called The Mary Sue, and they come up again almost every time someone that I’m talking to comes up against the idea of a geek site specifically for women.
“Why a geek site specifically for women?”
We’re just about two weeks from the launch of TheMarySue.com, an entertainment/news site for the the geeky girl, from the ones who love The Lord of the Rings but have never actually read the books, to the ones who want to know which movie stars are going to be at Comic Con, to those planning out their Minecraft cross stitch samplers. (Just me?)
Last week Gucci debuted the trailer for the TV spot advertising its new fragrance, Gucci Guilty, and revealed that the commercial is being directed by none other than Frank Miller, cinematic auteur of the comic book world. When we heard rumblings of Miller’s involvement, we reached out to our nerd-oriented friends at Geekosystem for a more in-depth rundown: who he his, why Gucci would want him to direct the commercial for their fragrance, and, most importantly, why allowing him into women’s fashion might be a bad idea.
