Door Number Three: A Bittersweet Reflection on a Joy-filled Transition.

by Jaclyn McCabe June 26, 2020 1 Comment

Wow! Y’all really know how to make a girl feel special! I am overjoyed with the love you’ve all shown me this past month. 

My inbox is filled with so many heartfelt messages. I’m humbled and honored by your words. It’s going to take me a week to read them and take it all in.
 
I set an intention to make Jaci Blue a three-fold brand: clothes, coaching, and community. It feels terrific to be able to say I have accomplished that goal.

I may be leaving the retail bit behind, but I will continue to be a bold and honest voice dedicated to the pursuit of helping plus-size women find their inner worth. Watch for more emails and social media posts about this in the upcoming days.

I also have a multitude of ideas of how we can gather as the plus-size lady krewe through community events.

I recently confessed to my niece, “I know what it’s like to go through door number two and do retail a different way. But I don’t know what it’s like to do this next part.” She simply smiled and replied: “Looks like you’ll be needing a door number three playlist.” 

So before I take a month off for rejuvenation—which really just means I’ll be jiggling naked alone in my house while singing Tom Petty songs—I’ll leave you with this playlist: Door Number Three: A Bittersweet Reflection on a Joy-filled Transition.
(Listen to it in order - no shuffle play allowed. Let the lyrics in this playlist tell you the story.)

Thanks for the great shopping experiences, the heartfelt insights and great playlists! I will definitely miss having Jaci Blue as one of my regular stops when I’m New Orleans.

How to Measure

Bust
Measure around your body under your arms and over the fullest part of your bust.

Waist
Measure around your body at your natural waistline. Keep the measuring tape comfortably loose.

Hips
Measure around the fullest part of your hips, placing the tape around midway between your crotch and belly button.

Inseam
Take a pair of pants that fit you well and lay them flat. Measure the distance along the inner seam between the crotch and the hem.

 

Bra - How to Measure

Step 1: Measure your band size.

With your bra on, measure firmly around your rib cage, underneath your breast. The measuring tape should be parallel with the ground. Please reference chart below for band measurements.

Step 2: Measure your cup size.

With your bra on, measure the fullest part of your bust. This works best with a non-padded bra. Make sure the tape is taut and straight. 

Step 3: Calculate your bra size.

Subtract your band measurement from your cup measurement. Generally, for each inch in difference, the cup goes up by one size.
Range 29"–32" 33"–34" 35"–39" 39"–41" 42"–43" 44"–45"
Size 34 36 38 40 42 44

Example:

Step 1: 33" = 36 Band

Step 2: 38"

Step 3: 38" - 33" = 5", which is an E cup size in Prima Donna or DD in Elomi

Step 4: Refer to Sister size chart to see equivalent cup sizes by brand

All sizes are UK SIZE
