My blog is like a good bra

A couple of years ago, I did a post on men's guide to women's bra sizes. It was not original, but it was inspired by the guy i was dating then. He asked me to explain to him what 36C and DD stand for in women's bra (are there men's bras? why do we need to clarify that?). So I did what every person who owns a computer and has decent internet connection does when asked a question that you have an answer to - Googled it. I came across a very stupid proof way of explaining to men the numerals and alphabet behind women's bras. It was done in a language they (men) understand, with graphics they would not be forgetting soon. It was intended to be a little post, those that get tucked away in your archive. But no. I had opened a pandora box. I had put 'men' and 'bra' in the same sentence.

Years later, this little post has become the major source of traffic to my blog. So much so that a Google search of the term 'mens guide to bra sizes' produces my blog as the No. 1 result! Think I am joshing? I took a screen shot to prove it:

No publicity is bad publicity no? But it makes me cringe at the amount of pervs ending up on my blog. But then again, it could be all well meaning men who are trying to understand their women's  bras sizes for when they next got to Victoria Secret for that Valentine day present. Talking of which, I find men buying their women lingerie a very selfish thing. I mean, isn't that meant to send the message 'I want to see you in this little number so that it can lead to even less?' Maybe it's just me...

For now, I will take comfort in the hope that its all well meaning boys ending up here. But it does make me wonder if and when this blog becomes a mommy blog, should I make revise that post and make it about those breastfeeding bras? Maybe even make it about udder covers? I read about those here and I can't remember on which post.
