Did You Even Know Your Bra Size ?!


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Ginnie from Netherlands

Yes, yes I did/do, Mariana. But think of all the people in the world who don't and don't care! (sigh)

KriKridesign from Cully, Switzerland

will be funny to see that kind of image within, let say, 40 years... In order to see how they have become a vintage picture...

Quelle différence entre la pin-up qui se tient bien droite, bien fière, la poitrine en avant et l'autre petite dame toute voutée, toute repliée sur elle-même...
Jolie shoot !
Bonne journée

Very funny and a very beautiful shot to boot!

24 Aug 2010 7:26am

Farnaaz from Iran, Iran

The paradox here is intersting the woman in the ad. and the woman in the shop ...
color is very lovely .

Fonts from Barcelona, Spain

Attractive image in the escape. A good advertising slogan that can be irritating to some! quickly and to put others! Perhaps a matter of size! Best regards, Adela

Xerophytes from London, United Kingdom

Very nicely shot. It's a bit sad though that you can see the difference of the model and the shopper.

Hilarious and a great instantaneous kind of image. My The customer is, yes, quite "different" shall we say. I like the camoflage pattern...she needs it!

Tamara from Aarschot, Belgium

Great capture again Mariana, the tones are superb :)

24 Aug 2010 1:46pm

Michael from Chester, United Kingdom

Size....? no. The most important thing is how to get them undone. Super shot that looks very much like a 60's ad.

24 Aug 2010 1:47pm

Christopher from Atlanta, United States

Great title!

24 Aug 2010 1:53pm

Willem from Noord-Scharwoude, Netherlands

Fantastic shot, I like the two colors in this picture.

24 Aug 2010 1:58pm

Dana from Burbank, United States

Funny. Friend alert indeed: cheap camo bras, step right up! Love the B&W vs. sepia, the new vs. quasi '40s retro. The TMI aspect that would make me too embarrassed to step inside ;p.

24 Aug 2010 2:08pm

Wild Mustang Photography from Carlisle, United States

This is fantastic! great composition and processing! Perfect cool image! Love this!

Wonderful tones in this quite a statement, and as for your question in the title, I have no idea ;)

24 Aug 2010 2:39pm

Ricard Pardo from Girona, Spain

Size does not matter. More important is the roundness, the lift and balance. Just like in a good picture. ;-)

24 Aug 2010 2:42pm

@Ricard Pardo: Love your comment ;)) So true !

Larry Lefever from Lititz, United States

A camouflaged bra. Something ironic there. Nice shot though. :))

24 Aug 2010 2:50pm

@Larry Lefever: I saw these camo style many years ago .. I see nothing special or new about it :)) Thx Larry !

Calusarus from St Sorlin en Valloire, France

Susan from Sausalito, United States

Did you notice that her bra is in military camouflage? Ha. Great image!

24 Aug 2010 3:30pm

@Susan: sure, I noticed, so what ? I see nothing special about it . I liked this woman, hesitating to go in or not, to buy 2 bras for 1 price...maybe she did not know her bra size ... :) thx .

Craig from Vacaville, California, United States

Excellent eye and timing!

24 Aug 2010 3:35pm

24 Aug 2010 8:02pm

Terral from Ponoka, Alberta, Canada

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Luckily, I don't need to worry about my bra size.......yet! Hopefully. ;-) I love the difference in tones here.

24 Aug 2010 11:36pm

Akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Beautiful picture! Great idea those different tones between the window display and the interior of the shop. Nice depth and difference of scale.

25 Aug 2010 12:34am

Liang from San Francisco, United States

i like the title here, very humorous!

25 Aug 2010 1:13am

Susan from Sausalito, United States

Well Marianna..others might see if very differently. You see the sign and the kind of sad woman and it is funny to you.....good,....still it seems really ironic that the pattern on the bra to hold those big bruisers up is the same the military use.

25 Aug 2010 2:50am

@Susan: I agree with you Susan, but this pattern is on everything, pants, jeans, blouses, t-shirts, panties... so bra with this patter is really nothing new on a stupid market :)

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

I don't even know what size pants I wear. I have to keep it written on a paper in my wallet when I go shopping.

25 Aug 2010 2:53am

Peter from Amsterdam, Netherlands

I think I like countries that offer camo-bra's for the women in their army. A great treatment again (anyway)

25 Aug 2010 8:39pm

Gianny from Spisska Nova Ves, Slovakia

Well, not at all. :) Size doesn't matter at all, people used to say. I love the "idea" of two worlds in this image. Well, army-bra is here.
