Magnet Use In Everyday Life

Magnets are quickly being used as a way to add accessories to your look or wardrobe. They are being used to create looks as in fashion nails and to maintain the impression of a look as in magnetic earrings that appear to be earrings for pierced ears. Magnets are even being used for more useful purposes such as working as closures for clothing especially kids clothing, making it easier for them to participate in dressing themselves at a younger age. All in all magnets are in fashion and so are the looks they are making possible for the many that use them.

For those who love the look of highly decorated nails, but want to save on the expense of going to a nail salon to get those decorative nails, there's a new product called magnetic nail polish. This product is easy to use. Simply apply a couple of coats of the metallic nail polish and then hold the magnet over the nail while it dries, interesting designs formulate on the nail. Get that salon look with a much smaller investment and change the look easily. With all the other metallic nail polishes on the market, you can always sport a new and exciting look.

Magnets can be used at salons in conjunction with the new gel polishes that last up to three weeks with no chipping or peeling. A gel polish with magnetized elements can be used to create unique designs when a magnet is held over the nail before the polish dries creating eye-catching undulations or movements. The same designs can be created with other magnetized nail polishes.

Earrings have traditionally been either clip-on or pierced. The clip-on styles were clunky to hide the clip and the pierced required a hole be drilled in your ear to secure them. Today, if someone wants the look of pierced ears they can simply put on magnetized earrings. This is a great option for women and men who want that look. Because ears or noses don't have to be pierced, just remove them and go on with your life, no holes needed. Change them readily as more and more magnetic earrings are being created daily. The styles range from studs to hoops, so if there's a look you've wanted to wear, it exists in the form of magnetic earrings.

If you dress a young child or senior, you may be happy to learn there's an option to struggling to keep them still while you button their clothing, magnets. Yes, magnets can be used as closures rather than buttons. Simply buy sewn in miniature magnets and attach them on the back of the overlapping layer of clothing and on the top of the underlying layer. Make sure the magnets are lined up so that the opposite magnets can attract and keep the clothing closed properly. Use this technique for infant clothing too. Don't use magnets if a pacemaker is used by the wearer and use it on clothing you send primarily to the cleaner to safe guard the magnetic properties of the magnets.

Use magnets to beautify and simplify your life. Magnets can add interest to nail d├ęcor, give the pierced look to ears and noses and secure clothing. Check in tomorrow, maybe we'll find yet another use for magnets that changes the way we dress or accessorize our world.

History of the Maternity Bra

Mary Phelps Jacob was the first person to be granted a patent in the US for a garment which we would recognise today as a bra. This patent was awarded to Jacob in 1913. Two decades later in 1933, the S.H. Camp and Company developed a system whereby breast size could be fit into one of four sizes dependent on the size and degree to which the breast sagged. For convenience, the four sizes were labelled as A, B, C, and D. The 1933 issue of Corset and Underwear Review featured an advertisement by Camp which showed profiles of breasts labelled with these letters. Larger breasts and band sizes greater than 38 were not accommodated.

In 1937, the Warner company also began to feature cup sizing, using the four letter labelling scheme which Camp developed in advertisements for their products. Other companies also began to follow suit in the latter part of the 1930's. However, some companies, particularly the catalogue companies were slower to adopt the scheme, preferring to stick with the small, medium, and large sizes through the 1940's. Britain was also slow to catch on and didn't adopt what was becoming the American standard for cup sizing until the 1950's. Maidenform had been using seamless cups in their bras since 1933 but didn't adopt the use of A, B, C, and D, cup sizes until 1949.

In the 1930's though, other innovations were happening that would revolutionise not just the underwear industry, but the fashion industry in general. For example, the chemists at the Dunlop company successfully demonstrated a reliable way to turn rubber latex into elastic thread. This paved the way for man-made fibres to be incorporated into clothing and due to their easy-care nature they were very quickly adopted.

Bra manufacturers were quick to start using the new man-made materials since underwear, and bras in particular needed very frequent cleaning.

In 1943, Albert A. Glasser received a patent for something called a "nursing brassiere" although little innovation took place in this area of the market even after the baby boom which followed on from World War II. A nursing bra was little more than a conventional bra with an extra clip which released the cup from the strap, thus ceasing the requirement for the bra to be removed when nursing.

There are a number of different manufacturers and retailers selling maternity and nursing bras, some of which are the traditional, larger, underwear manufacturers and some are more specialist maternity wear retailers who make garments designed to accommodate a woman's breast that in some cases can fluctuate a whole cup size within an hour, in line with feeding times.

Unique Solid Neckties and Skinny Ties

A necktie is a narrow & lengthy piece of fabric (silk, cotton, polyester, wool, linen etc.) worn by men under the collar & tied around the neck which hangs loosely. Neckties are an important part of men's clothing, and have played their part since quite some time. Although, neckties became very popular in the 20th century, there is evidence that people of older times also had the same concept and dates back to 210 B.C for the famous Terracotta statues of the army that were made during the reign of China's first emperor, have a neck wear or neckties around them, and in 106 B.C neckties were cloth worn around their neck and knotted like bandannas by the Roman Army.

There are various types of neckties e.g. necktie, cravats, bows, etc... Mostly men wear neckties on formal occasions such as office, office meetings, weddings, etc... and sometimes at parties or as and when the situation demands.The type of necktie worn by an individual also tells a lot about him, as it depends on what kind of necktie is he wearing & on what occasion. Many times there are dress codes in certain parties and occasions which people follow. Imagine someone wearing a bright and colorful necktie to a funeral!!! Shocking, right? Office goers mostly stick to some types of ties like solid neckties and skinny ties as they look very formal and at the same time look good and attractive. There are various designs of neckties that people are often seen wearing e.g. dotted, striped, designer, polka dots, etc...

The fashion statement is generally set by the different actors wearing different kinds of neckties at various events and functions. They get photographed and are on the news, magazines and then there are many fashion critics or writers commenting about what they think the actor looked like, whether that dress, that tie suited them or not.Presently, solid neckties and skinny ties are very much in demand. Especially, due to the fact that almost all the well-known actors have been photographed wearing one, and, due to the fact that they simply look good and are multi-purpose e.g. you can wear the same tie to your office and to a party and no one will think that it's a misfit for the occasion.
