Today I've put together a list of the top 12 TBL blog posts of the year.
Given that we made a few changes in The Breast Life, it seems appropriate to look back on what our readers found helpful and useful. And if you haven't read the blog in a while, it's a great way to catch up on our most popular blog posts, all in one place.
Here are the top 12 Breast Life blogs of 2017, many written by our guest contributors. It's interesting to see how many of these posts highlight the way the lingerie industry is changing and evolving. But there's still room for improvement, as others feel left out and can't find what they need.
1. Date Night Lingerie for Hot Older Women
No surprise that this showed up in the top 12, given that women over 40 don't appear in many lingerie advertisements. But I'm betting they'll be more seniors in 2018, as age diversity seems to be trending. I, for one, am glad to see it.
2. 13 Gorgeous Small Band Full Bust Bra Brands
What was once a small niche in the bra market may be the new normal. Every year I find more and more beautiful options for women who wear smaller bands with deeper cups. And why I had to amend this post when I left one off the list!
3. Best Bras for Shallow Breasts
This post came out of a suggestion from someone looking for bras for this breast type. It reminds me, once again, that it's important to talk about bra style, not just proper size.
4. 15 Inexpensive Honeymoon Lingerie Ideas
Our newest contributor, Estelle Puleston of Esty Lingerie, wrote this post. With weddings costing a small fortune these days, it's no wonder that the first in her mini-series on honeymoon lingerie was a hit with readers.
5. Should Women Over 50 Show Cleavage?
What do you think? This article came out of my frustration with lists of what women should and shouldn't wear after they reach a certain age. I think we seniors have the right to dress however we want.
6. Full Figure and Full Bust Bodysuits? Yes, Please
Continuing guest contributor, Holly Jackson of The Full Figured Chest, compiled a great list of bodysuits, perfect for women with bigger boobs. There's no reason everyone can't wear this fabulous lingerie trend.
7. Flat & Fabulous: Lingerie for Women With Unreconstructed Breasts
I was glad to see this post made our top 12 list. There's little attention given to the needs of women who don't choose to undergo breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Hopefully, more companies will start to design for this growing population of lingerie wearers.

8. 11 Full-Bust Swimsuits
Anyone with boobs struggles to find the perfect swimsuits. This post from Holly offers some great options for every swimming or surfing need.
9. 8 Random Reasons Your Bras Don't Fit
One of my favorite blogs this year: a rundown on why bras don't fit and a few solutions to common bra problems.
10. 7 Wireless Bralettes You Can Actually Wear Out of the House
Holly Jackson did it again with this roundup of wireless bralettes that you won't be afraid to wear out of the house. These super cute bralettes have enough style and support to make you look and feel great.
11. Small Cup Large Band Bras: Still an Underserved Market?
We've seen the launch of several new full busted, small band brands this year. But it's not clear if bra wearers who need larger bands with small cups have as many options.
12. "Body Positive:" Still Most Popular Fake Buzzword in Lingerie Industry
This opinion piece from Holly Jackson struck a nerve with lots of readers. What do you think?
