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.
The first prize goes to Kasturi Patra, for her post, To fit or not to fit, that is the question
The second prize goes to Rohini, for her post, That didn’t fit right, oh well actually nothing ever fits me right!
The third prize goes to Kashmira Lad for her post, From being a misfit to being the perfect fit
Make sure you post your entry on your blog between 20th Jan and 5th Feb 10th Feb (extended now!) and send us the link before 12 o’clock midnight (IST) on 10th Feb!
