My new Bikes for Boobs kit arrived!

I ordered the jersey and bibs at the end of September and they arrived today.

Front:


Back:


Both jersey and bib shorts are women's size 3x. I am not ashamed to post as maybe it helps others to figure out appropriate sizing for themselves. Jersey is a bit more snug than I was hoping however it fits rather well and I can't wait to get out on my bike and rock this kit.

Now you have to sell that beater Trek and get a nice specialized.

Normally I'm not a fan of the whole matching shorts / shirt thing but that looks really sharp.

Thanks everyone for the kind words and complements. Breast cancer is a near and dear cause for me. Not only do I have breasts () but my mom had a particularly nasty form of breast cancer (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) and she passed away in January 1988 as a result of complications brought on by the disease. She was and will always be my hero. I got this kit to not only help raise $ for others but to honor her memory and how hard she fought.

Absolutely Awesome! My little sister was victimized by that horrible disease and passed over ten years ago, and I would be proud to wear the jersey.

The signs seem to indicate she removed them from her online photo site. You never know about the complainers though.

If it were a mod, they would have posted "edited by mod blah blah". They do most times.

Thanks for the concern. Nobody was mean or nasty. I moved the pictures on photobucket and needed to update the link here.

That's awesome Beachgrad! I love boobs, I'd totally wear that. My boss loves boobs even more than me, I bet he'd wear it even though he doesn't bike, hehe.
