Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
We’ve all had situations where something didn’t quite fit right. Now is your time to tell that story, for the Buttercups blogger contest!
An ill-fitting bra, an uncomfortably scratchy outfit, a relationship that has run its course or a situation where you felt like a misfit – the list goes on…
Share your story of any fit that wasn’t quite the right fit and how that led to an embarrassing or funny situation.
Buttercups is a lingerie experience like never before. Through the fitting rooms that it pioneered in India, and a unique online quiz, it guarantees a perfect fitting bra. With styles, colours and designs crafted for the modern Indian woman, its purpose is to help you “B You”.
Share your view of ‘That Didn’t Fit Right’ and the best entries will win exciting prizes from Buttercups, besides being shared on all Women’s Web channels.
The winners for this exciting contest have been shortlisted, and here is the update, with a personal message from Arpita Ganesh, Founder & CEO, Buttercups:
We are all different, but we live in a world where “different” is considered “bad”. We are expected to fit in, follow norms (set by who, God knows!) or be like “everyone” else, so some of us try, to fit in, to be “normal” or to pretend to be. But, we are not.
The philosophy of Buttercups is to make every woman, no matter how unique, feel comfortable with herself, instead of expecting her to adjust into what is considered “normal”. At Buttercups, we are not only about bras, but about making women confident of their bodies and uniqueness and we will continue on this endeavor. Today, while we cater to a majority of women who were thus far unhappy with the choices they had, we still have a lot more to do, before we cater to every woman’s unique shape and size. But we will continue, slowly and steadily in the coming years, to achieve this and to continue on our philosophy of making every woman B herself.

Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
