Alrighty, lets give this a go.

> What colours look good with what?

It depends. You can't go wrong with a black or navy watch face, with a steel case. Stay away from anything gold since it can look super tacky if not done exactly right. If you want a more casual/military look you can get a watch with a PVD (black) case, but these don't age very well in my experience.

If you want something that is sporty, orange watches can look amazing, such as the cult-favourite Seiko Orange Monster.

>Should my watch match my pants?

Doesn't matter, sorta. For 99% of what you will be wearing, as long as you match the watch (in particular the strap, more on that later) to the occasion everything will be just fine. You don't wear an Orange Monster to a funeral, nor do you wear a dress watch to the beach.

Changing the strap on a watch can totally change the looks. You can take a sporty Fleiger style watch on a bright NATO strap and put it on an ostrich leather strap. It can now be worn at pretty much any formal event including weddings and funerals.

> Hair?

That's a new one. I honestly have no idea how one would match a watch to their hair, but seeing as I am currently wearing my watch on a bright orange NATO and have a mohawk (long story) I guess it is sorta possible.

Serious answer: Don't worry.

>When should I go for simplicity and when should I go for elegance?

It is personal preference. I like watches that are as mechanically complex as possible, since it appeals to the engineer side of me. I also like my watches to be extremely readable, since I use them for flying at night, where I NEED to be able to read them in the dark with a quick glance.

Others like their pieces to be as minimal as possible. It is up to whatever you like. On the other hand, you need to make sure your watch fits the occasion. No massive dive watches while meeting The Queen.

Now that we have your questions out of they way, here are my suggestions for some quality watches on a reasonable price point.

If you are looking for a good-for-everything watch, you have a few options. If you are looking for an automaitc watch (no battery, purely mechanical) you really can't beat the SKX007. It has excellent durability, classic looks, and the lume (glow stuff on the dial) is excellent. There is no battery to die, although you may need to get it services in a decade (or get a new one). Leave it on the bracelet for a sporty everyday look that can go with a suit, to a wedding, or a funeral. Throw it on a NATO strap (how I wear my watch every day) for comfortable everyday wearing. Get different coloured straps for different things, and change it up. A new strap can make it look like a totally different watch.

If you want something that will do almost any occasion without a mechanical movement, basically any Citizen Eco-drive will do the job. I myself like the Citizen Nighthawk, although it might be because I'm a pilot. The slide rule on the outside is great for addition/division (how much to tip, how much tax, etc.) and it will tell a second time zone.

If you are looking to make a statement, there is nothing that tops the Seiko "Orange Monster". This thing is built like a tank, the utomatic movement is proven, and the lume is out of this world. It also comes as the "Black Monster" if you want to be a bit more subtle.

If you are looking for a dress watch, I would recommend the Orient "Union" as it has a durable, in-house movement and great looks.

If you are looking for something badass that will be great for nighttime, there is the Traser Code Blue. It is a very durable quartz watch designed for military operations. It has vials of tritium (hydrogen with two neutrons) and will glow without any exposure to light for at least a decade.

If you are looking for a digital watch, I would recommend either the Casio Mudman if you are looking for a large, indestructable watch (That is also allowed for space travel by NASA) or the Casio F91W which is much slimmer, but less durable.

Possibly one of the best deals in "stylish" watches is the Timex Weekender. The come in a million different colours, have an electric illumination, and are very stylish and durable.

STAY AWAY FROM FASHION WATCHES!!! These include brands like Fossil, Nixon, etc. They are basically the same movement out of a $5 Wal-Mart special in a shiny case. Stick to reputable brands such as Casio, Seiko, Citizen, Timex, etc. If you are unsure about a brand, find a thread on the Watchuseek forums about that brand and that thread will probably tell you all you need to know. Also, stay away from Invicta. That company has shitty quality control and makes sub-standard products.

My advice would be to get the SKX007 on the bracelet, and then grab a few NATO straps. I have had great customer service interactions with Clockwork Synergy. Their straps are of decent quality, and their service is second-to-none. If you have a little cash left over, grab the F91W for chores are hiking, or anywhere you may need a stopwatch and illuminated face (i.e. Flying).

Most bras use the UK sizing when you are in the post DD size. There are a few exceptions.

Bravissimo has huge selection, as well as figleaves and amazon carries a lot of them. If you want to try on IRL nordstrom will carry your size in most stores.

If memory serves (see i dont even remember because UK sizing is king) 32K = 32H which is one band and cupsize larger than me. You have a lot of options but for me i prefer panache (particularly cleo which is a sister brand) bras mainly because they cater to smaller bands and deep (vs wide) cups.

Next step is figuring out you breast shape and trying on bras. Fyi after 20yrs of cramming myself into too small bras my initial size worked until i had the mythical “tissue migration” and went up like an extra cup size so i would warn you about buying a ton of bras initially because boobs can sometimes inflate after years of being compressed ;)

I really like the panache cleo marcie, its been my goto for several years (and sizes) now. But i probably tried on tons of sizes and styles over the years. But if you are full on top its a great place to start and has come in a rainbow of colors over the years.

Amazon isnt a bad place to start ordering bras because of free ship and returns and there are lots of shapes and styles.

Try a few and post fit results here (you dont have to post pics, just this fit great in this way but didnt work because of this...)

Odds are good you will need a deep cup vs a shallow one because generally H cups are. So panache is a good place to start. Freya is another brand (i found the bands were not firm enough when i tried them, but this was years ago) bravissimo has their own line of bras, curvy kate makes bras in your size (ive never tried them as ive heard they run wide and shallower, but i cant say for sure)

You can literally search 32H bras on amazon and scroll through options.

Goddess comes in US sizing, and a couple other brands but UK tends to be the popular big boob bras. The brits definitely have us beat bigtime on better bras ;)


These can be pretty compressing so i preferred going up a size ie 32H when i wear a 30H in other bras, but id start with your size and go up if you need to. Just be aware of sister sizing. Ie 30H = 32GG = 28HH. Go up a band go down a cup, and down a band go up a cup.
So 32H = 34GG is one band bigger but same cup. Confusing but bras can be ;)



Id highly recommend using a unlined cup bra like marcie or jasmine to find correct fit. Lots of girls want/are used to foam cup bras but they dont mold to you like a “cut and sew” bra and make it hard to diagnose fitting issues. There are some foam cup and spacer options out there in your size but id start with the inlined for fitting purposes first.

Check out bravissimo’s site too and filter by your size. The options will for sure blow your mind ;)

u/LBluth21 · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

I've nursed my twins for 16 months now (and pumped at work for months 3-11). Here's my thoughts:

Bottles: I got tommee tippee. Medela makes bottles for the pump you can pump right into. My girls loved them, but they drank the milk SO FAST. Even the "slow flow" nipples were way too much. Everyone told me to get so many bottles but we were fine with about 10 between the two of them. I'd get no more than a couple of any brand to try before committing.

Formula: You don't need more than a small can on hand. It goes pretty far if you're just using it to supplement. They also sell these ready to use "nursettes" that just come with a disposable nipple you can screw on. This is probably what they'll have at the hospital. Depending on the hospital you can probably also get them to send a couple of packs of it home if you ask. Super convenient.

Pump: You need a pumping bra. Life changing. I had this and loved it. Also Lasinoh makes great bags that are great for storing/transporting the milk and cheaper and tougher than the medela bags.

Other: You might want to get some of the cheap nursing tanks that you can wear under any kind of shirt. Then you can just wear regular clothes out and about, and lift up the outer layer and pop down the tank without having to expose post-baby stomach.

Other than that, it's kind of personal preference. I never used lanolin or nursing pads, despite buying a ton. I leaked for the first two weeks and then never again. And I ended up liking a throw pillow better than any of the big nursing pillows.

Good luck! The book "Work. Pump. Repeat" is a fun informative read for those of us who like to be over-prepared ;)

u/Hakumen · 3 pointsr/Watches

Wow, my girlfriend saw me looking at that purple MK and now she desperately wants one! Too bad it looks like they're out of stock basically everywhere.

She's got another Michael Kors and I'd say the quality is pretty alright. Assuming she takes good care of it I'm sure it'll last past a battery change. They're built by Fossil who builds a ton of name brand fashion watches too (Armani/Armani Exchange/Burberry/etc.), not saying Fossil is the end all be all but this specific MK seems solid. It's a fashion watch but it tells time and it doesn't feel majorly cheap like some Fossils I've handled so she thinks it's great.

I'm sorry you're having buyers remorse! That looks like a pretty unique two tone, I've never seen grey and rose gold together. For quality and unique/fashionable style I'd take a look at Invicta. They have a zillion styles and the four I own are very solid. The Invicta brand is known to have some build quality issues; I've heard about them with some of their cheaper/lower end watches but I've also heard across the board there can be some issues. It's just luck of the watch. Mine personally don't have any quality issues. They make automatics and quartz in all shapes and styles. If you see one that you really like (and it's not Rolex/Oris/etc. homage) than chances are you have to buy that watch to get that style. It will be worth it!

Seiko and Citizen make a really solid watch, IMO better build quality than an MK and an Invicta put together. I am not in love with all of their styles though. A lot of people tend to recommend Seiko 5s but I personally don't like many of their styles. Fashion does not seem to be Seiko and Citizen's foray; good build quality is! The only Seiko I own is an Orange Monster and I know it could definitely take a beating.

Lastly, tomchuk has the right idea looking on the WatchUSeek.com forums. People there are always offloading watches so it's a good way to see what your $300 can really get you. Most of those guys are really meticulous about their watches so a lot of the time you'll get a watch in very nice condition. You can definitely snag one of the more extravagant/expensive/fashionable Invictas there if you search around (if that's your style), and you can find cool old Seikos that are still tickin' like he posted.

Hope you find what you're looking for and please post pictures when you do!

If I were you I'd check out JCPenny if you can today.

They have several non-iron Stafford OCBD's for $15. I bought one of their fitted shirts and it fits and feels amazing. They also have gingham broadcloth shirts on clearance for $11. You can spend around $50 and pick up 4 nice shirts for work from them.

While you're there I'd also check out the Stafford wingtips if that's what you're looking for. Right now they're $50 and are widely accepted as one of the best buys for the $$.

If you're fine with chinos you should swing by H&M if there's one near you. I picked up two slim fit chinos (not skinny) for $15 each, and they fit me very well. I had to size down a size, but the fit is on point.

Shoes shirt and pants should be first I think. Once you pick up the shoes you want, you'll want a matching belt. At your budget I think I'd try somewhere like Marshalls for a cheap $5 belt that would last you a few seasons, until you make enough to buy a better quality one.

If you don't have to wear a tie, maybe consider investing in a watch. The Timex Weekender gets circlejerked a lot, but I think it's a wonderful starter watch. You can buy a couple of straps eventually, and that would let you have another piece to help rotate work outfits.

To recap:

  • 4 shirts for $50 at JCPenny

  • Stafford Wingtips for $50 at JCPenny

  • 2 pairs of chinos from H&M for $30

  • A starter belt for ~$5

  • Timex Weekender for ~$30

    Which leaves you with $35 to work with. You could buy a better belt for $40, or buy a couple of watch straps. You could buy more expensive shirts, or simply more shirts. Maybe more pants? All up to you, but I'd suggest the budget that I outlined.

    Once you move to San Francisco, I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND going to Uniqlo in person to try on their OCBD's. The fit on their stuff can vary sometimes, but trying it on before you buy would save you that headache.

    Good luck, hope that helps
u/Richmond92 · 1 pointr/Watches

Almost a year ago I made a post about how “working man’s” watches need to be recognized too. I posted the super beat up watch I wore to rock climb and it got a surprising amount of love. The next guy up to the task is nothing but a Timex Easy Reader with a black nylon NATO strap, and has been nothing short of reliable, functional, and even fashionable when necessary. Every feature on the watch, even down to the strap does not go without a use.

When in the midst of time-sensitive and sometimes dangerous activities like rock climbing, checking the time needs to be as fluid and easy as possible. The watch itself also needs to be inexpensive, lightweight, and durable. You may think this is a tall order, but surprisingly, Timex’s lower end watches fit the bill. This is why I chose the Weekender last time, and it’s why the Easy Reader has proved itself an amazing next choice. The giant digits prove its namesake and the bright red second hand provides nothing but reading clarity. The lightweight case and durable nylon strap allow me to climb with confidence and efficiency, as if the watch weren’t even there. The day/date feature is the cherry on top, making this thing a virutal wrist-calendar without sacrificing simplicity and legibility.

Oftentimes when I am out on a climbing trip I like to find a place to swim as well. Naturally, Timexes are freaking cockroaches, and the “WR 30M” label need fool no-one. This thing is straight up waterproof up to at least ten feet. And when camping, I make frequent use of the indiglo feature, as I hammock camp and there is nothing more frustrating than trying to reach for your phone in pitch darkness while stuffed in an Eno.

I’ve even worn the watch “out on the town” and have still gotten compliments on its understated and universally applicable design characteristics. In terms of fashion, this watch is a chameleon. It compliments anything I wear it with.

If you are an outdoorsman/woman but don’t like the gaudier sports watch options marketed to the outdoors, trust in the basics. They’ll do the job just as well without making you look like there’s a Squirtle strapped to your wrist.

u/crazindndude · 3 pointsr/Wet_Shavers

I have 3 watches, for different roles. They're all quite inexpensive because I'm not big ballin' just yet, but IMO look good and perform great.

  1. Seiko SNK809 "Seiko 5" - This is my dress watch. I swapped the band for a nice black leather with a butterfly clasp. Wear it pretty much only with a suit, which I've had to do a lot lately for interviews. Understated, elegant, and the only automatic I own.

  2. Timex Easy Reader - This is the workhorse. I bought a couple of nylon NATO bands and ditched the stock band. I wear this at work and pretty much in any casual setting. If I ding it or spill something on it, not the end of the world. Got it on sale for $15. Quartz movement and 10yr battery. Solid piece of work, classic Timex.

  3. Timex Expedition Chronograph - I like Timex. They make good stuff and it's functional. This is my most recent acquisition, Amazon had 50% off Timex watches for Cyber Monday. Also got a couple of NATO bands for this one - here's the black/grey stripe one I'm currently using. This watch kind of sits the middle ground of beater and dress. I wear it when going out for pretty much anything except work or formal stuff.
u/focusmitch · 3 pointsr/Watches

Firstly, buy a Seiko 5. I paid £55 for [mine] (http://imgur.com/xEsspb9) and I am in love. You cannot get more for you money anywhere. Date and day, automatic movement, luminescent dial.

Like all new collectors, my real grail is proper in-house movement (just saw this in another post [A. Lange & Söhne movement] (http://www.reddit.com/r/Watches/comments/2aq1x2/a_lange_s%C3%B6hne_double_split_movement_outside_of/), this is watch we live for, dream of and hope one day we'll be lucky enough to own). Once you get interested in movements and the passion of horology it's hard to respect these fashion brands. That said, all new brands have to start somewhere.

Furthermore, my collection is very humble and I'm not a watch snob (I don't snub cheap watches - it's fashion watches I dislike). Here's my collection:

  • [Classic digital Casio stainless steel] (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000LAKYW8) £15 paid
  • [Timex Outdoor watch] (http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00ADZIS7Y) £25 paid
  • [Seiko 5] (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004OFP21Y) £52 paid - looks much better in real life. I love the shape of watch case.
  • [Rossling & Co.] (http://www.rosslingco.com/collections/watches/products/silver-white-blued-hands) $150 paid. I've actually got the gold watch with blued hands but it's been taken of the website (out of stock presumably).
  • [Mondaine Simply Elegant Ladies, mesh bracelet] (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004WRPWB4) £225 paid (yup I bought the "ladies" model because the men's was too large for my wrists).

    Can't wait to add some more automatic and mechanical movements to my collection. I need to add some watches from brands with great provenance and heritage, but I'm new to this and working with tight budgets. One thing I can say is that I won't ever buy a Gucci or Armani watch or any fashion brand.

    When looking at brands without watchmaking provenance, Montblanc is a great example of how to do it right. They're relatively new to watchmaking but they're doing it with passion and care. As I say, every new watchmaking brand has to start somewhere - like every new collector - the key is passion.
u/CARTERsauce · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

The only link you provided that I approve of are the Sperry Top-Siders. I found the Ice to be very versatile and the solid black have recieved compliments as they aren't very common. Both versatile. Good with shorts and could even be formal enough for a summer wedding. Oatmeal, Sahara/Brown Buc Brown for a basic, well, brown.

For a watch I'll make a few personal suggestions. Of course, the Timex Easy Reader, Brown & Black. Bonus: Black face. This Seiko for a silver watch and I like this black Citizen Eco Drive as well.

Get some basic chino's in a good slim fit like the Dockers Alpha Khaki and some basic flat front shorts from Patagonia.

American Apparel for some staples. Cut down on your graphic tee's and get some plain stuff! I really like the Tri-Blend 50/25/25 Track Shirt for tee's, so comfortable. The black is actually a really dark grey, because of the nature of 'the blend', I really like it and it matches these dark grey twill plimsolls I have perfectly. They have great thin sweaters and cardigans too, browse what's available on Amazon, go on their website to see better images and what else they offer.

I don't mean to totally disregard your choices, I'm just showing you some items that I like, some good basics, and that's all I can muster before I head to bed.

Also, are you sure you're really a 32 inch waist at 6ft 150lbs?

u/jacobheiss · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I will be the first to tell you that you should ultimately buy the watch you want. And if this is that watch--go for it.

Having said that, I am a really big fan of sticking with the mechanical watch. Why? Because you really don't need a watch at all to keep time these days if you carry a mobile phone, like most people in most circumstances. That simple fact brings watches more towards the category of "accessory" as opposed to "gear," but there is one really big factor that can blur the sharpness of that distinction, and that is sticking with a mechanical watch.

Good mechanical watches cost more than good quartz watches of similar quality--that's a fact. But the reason for this is the quantum leap of craftsmanship that an accurate mechanical watch must possess. I mean, these things use synthetic rubies to reduce friction--that's what the jewel number indicates with watches like this or this or this. Take a glance at this clip about the detailing going into one of the least expensive mechanical watch houses you can buy from today, viz. Russia's Vostok (remember to turn on the English subtitles).

I have to admit, I'm not too keen on the styling of the Timex Weekender; so, I'd have to hunt around for a good, mechanical parallel. But if you have summarily dismissed mechanical watches as being uninteresting, I hope you'll reconsider. I bought my first two for $150 total thanks to ebay and a Christmas sale from Orient in the first case and Parnis in the second, and it was absolutely worth the additional expense given the dramatically greater level of craftsmanship. For me, this made the watch I wore something more than a mere fashion accessory; it became something like a wearable tribute to artisanship. If that's something you value, you might find that you like mechanical watches, too.

u/NAKED_AND_JAMESON · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

So, both of the watches you linked are described as "fashion brand" watches. This means that a popular clothing company has taken a pre-existing quartz movement (usually) then put it into a casing of their choosing and branded it. These watches generally won't break, but they are usually poorer quality than watches made by genuine watch brands at approximately the same price point.

Timex is a good starting point for watches. They look good, hold up well, and generally have very few issues. They're also fairly inexpensive. They typically use quartz movements. Quartz movements use circuit boards and batteries to operate the watch. They're accurate, but the cheapest method for creating a watch.

The second primary method for a operating a watch is automatic movements. These can either be hand-wound by the dial on the side of the watch, or they use a small weight in the watch to automatically (see: name) wind the watch as you move. As your arm moves, the weight spins around and winds up the watch. Automatic watches are more expensive generally, but usually also higher quality.

A good brand for automatic starter watches is Orient. They have a number of offerings in the ~$100-$150 price range that are very very good quality for the money you're paying.

Here are some specific recommendations for watches that are a great bang-for-buck ratio:

  1. Orient Mako II (automatic, $169, "dive watch" style).

  2. Orient Bambino (automatic, $159, "formal" style).
  3. Timex Weekender (quartz, $37, casual)

  4. Seiko 5 Automatic (automatic, $70, "formal" style).

    Generally speaking, most watches from Timex, Seiko, and Orient are all great, quality starter watches. I personally own an Orient Mako II in pepsi, which I love. Feel free to PM or check out /r/watches for more information.
u/trafquake · 2 pointsr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

I'd always recommend buying a solid automatic watch. Watches like MK, DW, fossil, etc, are cheaply made with Chinese parts and usually run on quartz and are meant to be replaced when they start to break down. Investing in an automatic can really ensure you have a great watch that will last.

Like mentioned, the skx007 is a great watch and will last you a lifetime. You can also mod this watch quite easily as well and the movement will last forever. Many watch enthusiasts love Seiko, myself included (have 3 will probably get more). Seiko 5's are also solid entry-level watches and many come in around the $100 mark depending on model: https://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNK789-Automatic-Stainless-Steel/dp/B0018N0HL0/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=seiko+5&qid=1565104496&s=gateway&sr=8-4

The Orient Bambino is also a great entry-level automatic dress watch with a few different dial combos: https://www.amazon.com/Orient-Bambino-Japanese-Automatic-Stainless/dp/B01N45HWRM

For a cheaper diver, the Orient Ray/Mako lines are good as well: https://www.amazon.com/Orient-FAA02004B9-Display-Japanese-Automatic/dp/B01AK5TQXG/ref=sr_1_2?crid=K6K5EI9K3HA7&keywords=orient+mako+2&qid=1565104421&s=gateway&sprefix=orient+mako%2Caps%2C187&sr=8-2

If you can spend more you can look at Hamilton's Khaki line or Jazzmaster, Seiko Sumo or Seiko Sarb033, Sinn Watches, Chris Ward, Squale, Junker's Bauhaus or Max bill if you like the Daniel Wellington Style.

You can even look at used/vintage and get a nice Omega Seamaster for ~$500

u/percypersimmon · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

There are a lot of intro to suit things in the sidebar.

Here's a quick run-down from what I know:

You need two suits, navy and charcoal. Both should be single breasted, 2 button (unless you're over 6'5" then 3), with notch lapels. The cut should be slim without being skinny, but you can get away with a slimmer cut @ 18 than you can in your late 20s.

You can stay simple with white, but I like a lighter blue with a bigger check like this, but again, a matter of preference.

The white shirt makes it easier to pick out a tie. If you're doing plain white, or a solid then you really should get a striped/patterned tie or at the very least it needs to be textured (silk knit). If you were to do a checked/striped shirt then pick a different pattern for the tie (e.g. checked shirt gets a regimental striped tie). You may or may not want to do a pocket square for an interview. I personally wouldn't for something as traditionally conservative as law school.

I think you should look at yellow for a predominant tie color, it's good for interviews.

I would look into getting brown shoes if you are wearing a navy suit, get a decent pair too as you'll want these for several years as well (try to get some leather bottomed oxfords).

Match your belt to your new shoes. The watch is a little weird, just seems like a hybrid of too many differing styles. Something as simple as the (perennially recommended in MFA) Timex Easy Reader is cheap and effective. It'll balance the look without overpowering. Leather strap is also better in a suit than metal.

Get a nice haircut before as well (well a few days before so it doesn't look too new when you interview).

Buy the suit in enough time to take it to a tailor, this really isn't negotiable, you must do this even if it looks like it fits off the rack. There's always a tweak. Also be sure to wear the shoes/shirt/etc you're going to wear to the interview to the tailor when you go to get alterations.

At your budget I would concentrate on the brands; TImex and Casio. Both of these brands make inexpensive, but good quality watches. Anything you get from either of these brands will likely be a good watch, it's just a matter of finding the style and features you like. You will have a large number of models to choose from.

You are not likely to find a good automatic for under $50, so you might want to stick to quartz watches. (You can get a very nice quartz watch for under $50.) If you want to swim with it, look for a watch with 100m water resistance (200m is obviously better, but unnecessary unless you scuba dive).

A few ideas...Casio MRWS310H-9BV solar powered, and 100m water resistant.

Casio Dive watches, the best divers you will find for under $50 or under $20

Timex Weekender a great inexpensive watch. It is very versatile and looks good on a variety of straps.

It's a bit harder to get diagnose fit and for some people to get the best possible fit in a moulded bra, but if you're not at all open to wearing a non-moulded bra, that's totally your choice. Your measurements put you between band sizes as well as between cup sizes, so you're likely to wear a 32 band in some bras and a 34 in others (in addition to being between cup sizes).

I'm putting only amazon links in here for ease of shipping/returns. Everything I've linked is available on Prime, but it might default to another seller if the size you choose is out of stock or they have a lower price so just pay attention when you're adding stuff to your cart as other sellers will have their own return policies.

For absolute basic, 'everyday' bras, your best choice to start would probably be Freya Deco. This bra runs bigger in the band, so you'll probably do fine in a 32 band here.

Personally I prefer the fit of the Parfait Jeanie to the Deco, I find the cups/straps are a little closer together so it's much more comfortable for me. (Also it's $20 cheaper, though, I'd still pay the extra money for something that fit better).

Strapless bras are fairly difficult to come by in larger sizes, the Deco Strapless is what I would consider the most useful one, it also comes in a longline version which may be more supportive if you don't find this sufficient. It is tighter in the band than the regular Deco, so you may take a 34 in this.

Panache Sport is probably the most consistently recommended bra on this sub, it comes in underwired and non-wired versions. It's not moulded, the cups are seamed and made of flexible foam. The underwires in the wired version are padded, so it's pretty comfy. You'll probably take a larger band in this based on the fact that you're lifting and doing yoga, and not running.

However, since the Panache sport is an encapsulation bra, it's really not my first choice for yoga. I prefer this Shock Absorber which is a strong compression bra, to just flatten my boobs as much as possible to get them as much out of the way as they can get. This runs tight in the band, so I might suggest trying a 36 band. The sizing is kind of weird on this as well, the boob section never gets any wider, it just gets taller (I own this in a FF and H cup in the same band size), so if you try it and think it doesn't provide enough coverage and is showing too much very squished cleavage, just size up even if it's a cup size much larger than you would normally wear.

$250 is a bit of a tight budget for the number of bras you want, but really not impossible once you've narrowed down your size. Even based on Amazon-pricing, if you like the Parfait Jeanie, you can get 3 of those, the Deco Strapless, and a sports bra for $260.....but you can also get 3 Decos, the Deco Strapless, and a Panache Sport from here for £161 which converts to $213USD. You can also often find new with tags bras on ebay from UK sellers that are selling off previous seasons' printed or fashion colour bras.

u/turdbogls · 0 pointsr/Watches

people here are kinda snobby....if it isn't a mechangical (automatic, smooth second hand, not ticking) they typically dont like them.

I personally really like the look of this watch....for $60 its probably not bad. quality is what you would expect from a $60 watch...expect the glass to be just regular glass (not sapphire or even mineral crystal), expect the writing/markings to be decent but not great, dont expect the lume to be good at all. and expect the "leather" band to be cheap and stiff.

good beginner watches for under $100 are not hard to come by.

Timex has some nice (and similar looking to this) watches for under $50

  • weekender
  • Fairfield

    dont worry about the straps, they can be swapped easily or purchased with other ones.

    Casio is another good cheaper brand

    if you want to look into mechanicals, a really nice entry level mechanical watch brand is Orient...they have a slew of different styles, and they are a pretty well respected watch brand on this sub. fit and finish are really nice for the cash. I picked up my Orient mako for under $100 last year with a metal bracelet, and bought this leather strap from clockworksynergy.com for $12.
u/Orgcore · 2 pointsr/promos

The best outfit to go with a pair of Golden Fox Chukkas. We'll start from the ground up.

Socks: Chukkas for me are a great boot to wear in the spring/summer/fall. Nice and light, less insulation than a typical winter boot. One of my favorite parts about the summer is baseball, so a pair of socks like this should be a given.

Pants: Again, let's keep it nice and light. A pair of J. Crew 484 chinos in Navy sounds like a good plan since they match the chukkas in formality and I absolutely love the classic combination of a navy and tan.

Shirt: I've always been a huge fan of chambrays, especially in red. Again, fits in well with the summery vibe.

Accessories: Gotta go with the classic Timex Weekender. The nylon strap on these just look too good, and the watch doesn't even break the bank either. As for a belt, I'd go with a DIY belt with matching leather to the Golden Fox chukka for a personal touch.

EDIT: I wanted to enter the other contest because I am a goofball. I'll expect my commission checks every two weeks when these become Amazon best sellers.

u/MinnesotaMike29 · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

The best thing about the current outfit is the belt. Even that may be a little narrow/formal for the event, but it will do. You have four main items to focus in on this week. The most important being new shoes in a similar belt color and a watch. If you have the money new chinos and shirt.

Stafford Wing Tips for $42 are a good choice and can be found at your local JCPenny's. Read up on dress shoes and get something less formal. (Lighter shade of brown and brouging)

For the watch, a $27 Timex like this is a good deal and gives off a casual vibe. What ever watch you chose, get it from a reputable watch maker instead of a mall clothing brand. Timex, Seiko, Citizen.

Your current pants are baggier than what MFA typically recommends, an inch or two too long causing bunching by your ankles, and that is why you are seeing comments about poor fit. For your pants, I would get on the casual/slim end of the spectrum Gap's Lived in Slim khakis or a little more formal because of the leg creasing and fabric: Express Photographer. Pick a Light Brown, Lighter grey for less formal and a darker grey or navy blue for a little more formal.

For the Shirt I would highly recommend the Uniqlo OCBD. Sadly you may not receive in time so I would recommend J Crew's slim shirts. They fit similar but are a little more pricey. To make it more casual, get a shirt with a button collar, in a light summery color or patterned in a pleasing pattern like this.

Hope this helps and have fun next week!

u/withfries · 2 pointsr/Watches

>a good first everyday watch that would be fine in situations such as interviews

Formal and semi-formal situations? I'd go with a simple dress watch.

For budget and great looking, consider a Timex Easy Reader, $30, it's a white dial watch with leather strap, great for what you're going for.

What's your budget? Around the hundreds, I'd go with an Orient Bambino, it goes for around $120-$150. It's very classic, minimalist, has a dome crystal, and is not very distracting. It's an automatic too. There's 4 versions of the Bambino. I personally like version 1, and version 2 with blue hands.

A little higher, Timex has been doing some great reissues. The Timex Marlin, $200, is pretty understated but eye catching. It's a manual wind movement watch with a call back design. This will probably be my next watch.

Lastly, Tissot has some great automatic's. The Tissot Visodate, $400, is a fantastic watch for the price.

All these watches can be had for much cheaper if you're open to looking at the gray market (watch exchange forums, ebay, etc.). I hope this helps, at the very least to show what's out there. Cheers and best wishes!

u/anck_su_namun · 71 pointsr/BabyBumps

Hi! I’m back!!
Although I thoroughly intend to write my birth story when I’m ready, I just finished my first piece since the baby arrived so in celebration, I’ll pair it with something useful.

I really appreciated posts like this while I was pregnant so here goes:

Things I didn’t know I needed:
(AKA things I have frantically ordered on amazon at or around 2am)

Bottle Drying Rack This probably seems obvious, but when we didn’t get this from our showers we were like... idk why we can’t just use a towel??

Safe way to cosleep My husband built a BEAUTIFUL Sidecar Crib, but it was attached on my side of the bed and it took 2.5 weeks for me to have healed enough to climb in bed around it safely with the baby. This way, I didn’t have to bend over to pick up baby or even spit up to check on/soothe him.

Lactation Suppliment My lactation consultant approved. This one worked well in my breakfast tea.

Better flanges My poor nipples were so sore and the flames that come with the Medela... well I’m not sure who they’re supposed to fit but not me. My doula practically ordered these for me. GAME CHANGER.

Pumping bra I was cutting holes in sports bras. This is better.

Nipple Shells Another kind reddittor sent me in the direction of this AMAZING INVENTION after I posted a photo of ice packs tied to my nipples with a burp cloth because I refused to wear a shirt my nipples hurt so bad. I will be purchasing these for EVERY PREGNANT WOMAN FOREVER. They keep your nipples dry, collect drips, apply counter pressure to keep your nipples shaped correctly for latching, and most importantly omg nothing touches the precious nips and you can wear a shirt!!

Car mirror

Me: that seems extra, he’s in a car seat and safe why would I need a mirror??


Car adapter for my breast pump Cheaper than batteries

Shade for his side of the car because anything that wakes up my sleeping baby is the devil. This one has a bonus that allowed me to roll the window down and it was HOT in the south

Better suction for the breast pump Again- just better than whatever they send you

My Breast Friend we got the boppy but this one saved my back

Heating pad Turns out I’ll do ANYTHING to keep the baby asleep when I transfer him to his crib including preheat the darn thing (on low!) before I lay home down

Stroller Caddy You’ll want somewhere to put your keys, phone, and coffee

Baby K’tan An easier way for my husband to wear the baby.

Leggings I had a pair of these before, and they are SO COMFORTABLE on my postpartum body that I bought 5 more in different colors!

•Extra pump parts for whichever pump you have

•A hands-up swaddle I found at Target


Anyway, hope this helps! Best of luck to all of you!

u/Fuiste · 0 pointsr/Watches

This Invicta diver works great on the steel band it comes with, and I personally think a weathered brown leather strap would look great too.

It's a pretty clear "homage" to the Rolex submariner, but for the price you're getting a pretty good quality automatic movement in a watch that looks great with anything from jeans + t shirt to business casual.

If you want something more minimal and are willing to ditch the steel bracelet, then this Timex is a great option. I've got one that's still ticking on its original battery after about 10 years. They're bone simple bulletproof watches that look good with any outfit.

u/dehue · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I am not the person you replied to but I wear 28GG and by far my favorite sports bra and bra in general is the wired panache sports bra. It comes in bra sizes up to H cup from 28 to 40 band. It's completely amazing - it manages to be really comfortable with padded underwires that I wear it out dancing or casually. It provides support without strangling me and has a racerback clip for added support. It even gives a great shape under shirts. It really makes running a no longer a painful horrible experience. Can be bought at Amazon, Nordstroms usually has some as well.

Do make sure that you are wearing the right size though. Victoria Secret told me I was 32DDD, but I did not realize until later how badly that size fit me. VS and other similar places tend to use outdated measuring methods that fit women into larger bands and smaller cups to fit people into A - DD range. This method really does not work well for bigger busts and results in bras with not the best support or fit. I am much happier after switching to wearing a tigher band with cups that actually fit my boobs properly.

u/BriannaRG · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

Hey there! Definitely not an expert here (I'm sure one of them will check in) but I used to have the same problems. Sports bras are the worst with a pendulous shape- I felt like I was always trying to escape out the bottom of a too-big band! I was jealous of my friends who could just buy a cheap one off the rack in some store labeled in "S, M, L" sizing and make it work. That was definitely not going to happen for me. Looking back, I think most of them had firmer tissue and were self-supporting, so they had a completely different shape than I did.

You'll definitely want to measure yourself according to the sidebar guidelines so that you have a better size to start with. Then, there are lots of sports bras that have adjustable bands and straps, and even different types of hold.

My favorite turned out to be the Panache Sports Bra (I like both the wired and non-wired for different activities). I get incredible lift and support, and absolutely no movement. It's on the expensive side, but I've never been more comfortable in a sports bra and I don't dread working out anymore. Plus, Amazon has lots of sales, so I've rarely paid full price. If it works with your measurements, I recommend trying it! If not, there's lots of other styles to try, and this sub was very helpful in making a few recommendations for me when I was looking. Hopefully you find something that works for you!

u/skepticaljesus · 2 pointsr/Watches

I think the watch you linked is a Kent Wang, right? Reviews on those are only so-so anyways, as seems par for the course with KW stuff. There's better ways to spend $400.

Do you care if your watch is quartz or mechanical? If this is your first piece, I'd recommend sticking quartz. They're cheaper and lower maintenance and down the road if you feel like you've got the bug you can upgrade to mechanical, but in the short term I don't think it's really worth it, especially if you just want a nice stylish piece.

For some nice, clean low priced pieces that are a good value and have a smart design, check out the Timex Weekender, Braun Men's watch, Rider Bauhaus, Orient Bambino, or pretty much any Seiko 5.

Those last few are mechanical rather than quartz. At this price point it doesn't matter a whole heck of a lot, just get something you like the look of.

u/matsky · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I own one, and it's the gateway drug to watch collecting. It's a good, cheap, starter watch - but you'll probably end up getting something more expensive if you really like it.

Pros: it's a good quality, good looking, dirt-cheap (for $30 on Amazon, you can't go wrong.) "basic" field watch, NATO straps are cheap and come in dozens of colours/patterns, the quartz movement is extremely accurate, the battery life is good (haven't changed mine and I've had it for a year), the mineral crystal won't scratch easy so it's a good beater, and if you press the crown the face glows green for night reading (their "indiglo" feature).

Cons: it's simple, there are no complications like date/day, it is loud, it only has a water resistance of 3 ATM (so just splashes), and (I could be wrong) but I don't think it has spring pins on the lugs so you're stuck with NATO straps. Also, if you get right into your watches, you might want a mechanical over a quartz (even though they're more of a hassle, they're just somehow cooler - the Seiko 5s mentioned are automatics). Personally, I don't love the polished case either - I prefer a more subtle brushed steel look. If you do get one, be aware you can get them with a white or black face. The watch is 38mil in diameter, too, which is about the smallest you can get for a men's watch - so be aware if you have a big wrist it might look small.

This is a great alternative if you want a mechanical watch, but it's a little more expensive - but still great value.

The Panache underwired sports bra: http://www.amazon.com/Panache-Womens-Underwired-Sports-Bra/dp/B005X5FG2O

I am a 30JJ and love Love LOVE this sports bra. The band is nice and firm, and the wires are very well padded and don't hurt or dig. I also love that it has a hook to convert the bra from normal to racerback straps (I find I need the extra holding power of converting to racerback after a while on a run!)

Have fun getting back into the gym! I'm just getting back into after the holidays too and it feels great to be sore (good sore!) after a workout!

u/bustybluestocking · 1 pointr/ABraThatFits

My experience with sports bras and gymnastics (which has it's own 360 concerns) has led me to search for the elusive racerback encapsulation DD+ bra. Racerbacks are only style I get support, good distribution of pressure and full range of motion in, while encapsulation personally feels much more comfortable then compression. Both the Panache Sport and Freya Active (which are very popular, so give them a try too) have j-hooks which are completely inadequate and a bit flimsy.

I've temporarily settled on the Bendon Extreme Sport. It's a cup size small for me (only goes up to a G, alas!), but the best fit I've found: great top and side support, convertible straps for a true racerback and really strange wires (they have a sort of swoosh shape when worn) that somehow work. Worth a spot on your list for sure.

u/helpimstuckinabox · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Despite not really liking watches, after a lot of pestering from friends and family I've decided to buy a Timex Weekender, but I have some questions regarding the watch face and strap. For reference, the attire I would most likely be wearing with this watch would be your basic bastard /r/MFA uniform (ocbd, dark wash slim fit jeans, etc)

  1. I can't remember if I read this here or just overheard it somewhere, but I seem to recall a lot of people recommending you replace the base strap on the Weekender and use something else? If so, can I get some recommendations here? The cheaper the better, I'm not looking to spend too much on this.

  2. If we take a look at this Amazon listing for Weekenders, which watch face would be considered the most neutral or versatile. If you can, let me know if any of these watches work with their included straps, or if I'm better off replacing it as asked in question 1.

  3. What's my best bet in terms of finding a good deal on these? Should I try walking into various stores (walmarts, etc) and see if they're on sale? Or should I just keep watching the Amazon listing and pray it goes on sale there? Budget is a little tight at the moment, and I do have an event coming up within the next couple of months that the watch would be useful for.

    Thanks in advance!

This watch-face is called "Das Slick" and was made available by a developer named "jdixl" on the Pebble app store. Its online link is available here. The developer did a great job of all the graphics, animations, and proportions of the different pieces. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any contact info for jdixl, but hope I can still perhaps find a watch that was his inspiration for this face.

As Pebble products are in a tricky state of being these days, I have been looking for a different watch to switch to. This watch-face was my favourite on my pebble watch, so finding something close or identical would be really awesome.

If you don't think you know any relevant info... I would still appreciate your advice. My taste is more towards slim and simple watches, I like Timex Weekender watches, and recently ordered one with an even slimmer profile called Timex Easy Reader Day-Date. So far the Timex Easy Reader is the closest I've found to the Das Slick face. Perhaps you can give me some suggestions or ideas based on that info & the picture in this post.

Thanks for your advice and time guys.

$180 can definitely get you something decent. Where would you wear it? Are we talking an office setting, something casual with t-shirt and jeans? Something that can get beaten up outdoors or you can rock at the gym?

Lots of ideas out there, but it's like saying "What kind of shoes should I buy for $180?" -- really depends on what you're wearing them for!

A few popular ones:

The Casio "Duro". Known for it's classic design, can be worn on all kind of straps, and Casio is a well-respected manufacturer of quality affordable watches. It's also water resistant to 200m, which means you can take it literally anywhere and it'll operate like a champ.

If you want an upgraded version of the Casio, this Seiko is well-loved in the watch community and, if you spend a few dollars to get it serviced every 5 years or so at a local watch shop, will easily last you the rest of your life. Classic divers watch with a handsome metal band, and will pair well with any outfit short of a black-tie event. It doesn't take a battery either, because it's automatic!

Finally, if you don't care about water resistance and want something that will pair with any kind of "everyday" activities, consider the Braun. It's a great design because it's not flashy or too fancy, but will quietly just WORK with whatever you're wearing: suit, t-shirt, date night, bar night, whatever. Comes in black too.

The Casio MDV106-1AV is a perfect daily use watch and does look like the Rolex Submariner but is a great watch in it's own right. It is quartz rather than automatic but considered by many to be best available budget dive watch. You can purchase the bracelet for it for less than $30.

If you must have an automatic rather than a quartz then the Orient Ray II is a great option that is also similar to the Submariner in terms of design but again a quality time piece in and of itself.

And if you aren't bothered about having the Rolex style looks, the Seiko SNZH55 is designed along the lines of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms and also an excellent timepiece.

Posting another one of my favorite cheap but stylish watches I've added to my rotation. I purchased the OD Weekender a few weeks back and something about it just didn't float my boat. After scouring the web for a decent Nato strap seller, I purchased this strap along with two others from The Nato Strap Co. and immediately fell in love with my Timex's new look.

Though I love the Weekender's high looks/price ratio above everything else, I especially like how easy and readily it accepts new Nato straps. I look forward to purchasing and photographing more in the future.

Thanks for taking a look!

No worries, we're all learning. An under $100 mechanical mostly points to one of the Seiko 5 models. There are so many it's hard to list them all. The SNK80X are the most popular, but not exactly minimalist. Something like the SNK789 might be more along your line, but you can pick any of the Seiko 5's and it will be fine.

Tiny bit above budget, the Citizen NH8350 also comes in black and a much sought after blue sunburst. Nice mechanicals for a great price.

If you want a true Bauhaus minimalist watch under $100 though your best bet is quartz (you could even build a nice small quartz collection for under $100):

-Timex Fairfield

-Bulova 96B104

-Citizen BI5000-01A

That outfit make you look like a high schooler. Though if that's the vibe your going for awesome, but I doubt it.

I'm going to assume you're in your early 20's and not a high schooler, nor do you wish to look like one.

The biggest issue with this outfit is that there is no unity between the pieces, it looks like you just threw on whatever was in your closet that day. My goal is to keep your overall style the same, but make it look a bit less immature. Try out some of these tips, and I think you'll be amazed at the difference.

  1. Can't tell if the white on your feet are socks or the shoes, but if they are socks, ditch em or get no-shows.

  2. Those glasses look like they came form one of those cart dealers you see at rest stops, buy some decent shades without the stupid reflective coating. (I'm a big fan of the classic RayBan 2140's, though I wear 2132's cause they go with my face better).

  3. It looks like you're wearing a red beanie, which goes well with the red shoes. That being said, I hate the shoes, they stick out like a sore thumb and detract from the overall look of the outfit. Either try swapping them out for a more neutral color or add more color to the chest part of your outfit (ideally a aqua as it goes well with red without looking like christmas)

  4. I REALLY (I mean REALLY) hate the button-up over graphic tee looks. Is just screams high school. Obviously that's subjective, but I absolutely can't stand it. I used to do it when I was in high school and thought I looked like the shit. That being said, if you are going to do it, I say ditch the graphic tee and go with a solid color that compliments the color of the button up (For example, I have a red checked button up that I wear over a teal v-neck). Personally, I like to button the shirt up to the third button, so the tee underneath just pops up the top. Like so

  5. That shirt does not fit. The shoulder seem does not look like it lands on the apex of your shoulder bone like it should. Also the sleeves on the shirt are billowing like mad. Also your sleeve rolls are sloppy (though that may be intentional).

  6. I would ditch the metal watch for a cloth band one. A popular option (and one which I love) is the Timex Weekender. Metal bands are typically more formal than that outfit, so it looks out of place as hell.

  7. Jeans look fine, I like slimmer, but that's personal preference.

    As for your point about shoes not being as important as people say, I have to disagree. Look at this and this. Just changing the shoes has a profound effect on the overall look and formality of the outfit.

    P.S. This is my favorite outfit for going out, though sometimes I go more basic with just a V-neck.

For watches, I've owned smart watches (pebble and a moto 360) and own many analog watches. I prefer analog to a fitness or smart watch any day of the week if your primary purpose is to have a watch on your wrist (and not an extension of your smart phone).

For watches, I have 3 recommendations, all under $100:

  1. Timex Weekender: This is a cheap, <$40 watch. Nothing too fancy but it's become somewhat of a staple. [Here's a link.](http://www.amazon.com/Timex-T2P4959J-Weekender-Display-Leather/dp/B00LW3RCW8/ref=sr_1_1?
  1. Seiko SNK809: This is a fantastic automatic watch. I have one on my wrist right now. It's a great intro to automatic watches. Link Here.
  2. MVMT watches. I've read a lot of good things about these. They have a very minimalist design which a lot of people like. Link here.

    Watches are extremely personal. The colour of dial, bezel, and strap can be endlessly customized. Gold tones are very popular right now though a black strap/silver or white dial will always be a classic.
    Another thing to consider is the size of the bezel. You'll want to pick the right size of watch depending on your wrist size.
u/GreenLizardHands · 1 pointr/intj

I wear an analogue watch, and have for about 15 years. I wore Fossil watches for the first 5 or so, and have worn the one I wear now for the last ~10 years. It's easier to tell about what time it is at a glance with an analogue watch. And really, that's how we think about and understand time, with approximations.

If you are like me, when you look at a digital watch and it says 7:43 pm, your brain will translate that to "about 7:45pm" before it uses the information. So, seeing 7:43pm vs 7:45pm doesn't make a difference in what it means to me. In either case, I know I have about 15 minutes until it's 8 o'clock.

For this reason, I find an analogue watch to be more intuitive/easier to use.

However, if they often need to know precise/exact times (i.e., they need to know that it's 7:43pm and knowing "about 7:45pm" isn't good enough), a digital watch might be a better option. I can't really come up with a scenario where this would be important (and one wouldn't have the time to just look more closely at an analogue watch), but I'm sure someone's job involves this sort of thing.

The thing that I like most about the watch that I've worn for the last decade is that it's low/no maintanence. It's one of the Citizen Eco-Drive watches that runs off of solar power. So in the ~10 years, the only service it has needed is replacing one of the spring pins (and it only needed that because I was a doofus and broke it while removing a link).

But really, you should just ask him. INTJs aren't all the same in their preferences for things. They're similar in that they come up with systems. A watch is a device that they'd be expected to wear all the time, i.e. it would become part of their system. In a bygone age, it would be a welcome part of any person's system (saving them the time of finding a public clock somewhere). But nowadays, everyone is carrying a phone around with them which they can use to tell time, and so they don't see the need to wear a watch, and may even consider it a burden.

TL;DR: INTJs come up with systems, but we don't all come up with the same systems. The only way to know what watch would best fit into your INTJs system (or if a watch would fit into their system at all) would be to talk to them about it.

EDIT: If you really want to get them a watch, maybe consider getting them something like a Timex Weekender or Timex Expedition Scout. They're no-frills, all practical options, and are low enough cost that they can be considered a safe "experiment" to see how he likes having a watch as part of his system. From there, you can find out what he likes and doesn't like, and us that knowledge to get him something more expensive for his birthday or something down the line.

u/OmahaYessa · 1 pointr/Watches

Why everybody, I am looking to buy a everyday watch for under $100. I’m really just looking for a watch that will go with everything and I can always wear. So far the ones I’m considering in no particular order

Timex Weekender

This is nice because it’s cheap, and I could swap straps. However a lot of people complained of how loud it ticks, and it’s not water resistant

Timex Weekender Chronograph

This was my initial choice, but I have since second guessed myself and now am leaning elsewhere. I feel like the case is too thick, and it’s not too water resistant.

Invicta Pro Diver

I’m iffy on the metal band. I do enjoy the actual look of this, just not sure if it’s too classy.

Seiko 5 Automatic

This is the watch that’s in first right now. I would definitely purchase a leather strap for it off top, but some people reported it didn’t keep time well.

That’s my list. Overall, I’m just really looking for advice. I’m not very watch savvy, and would appreciate help by some of you pros. Let me know why these watches are good or bad, and offer some insight. I appreciate it!

u/JesseW625 · 2 pointsr/Watches

I recently went to a Rolex AD and I just love the look of the Submariner. I don't have enough money to get one atm, but I found this Seiko that looks very similar, so I bought it for about $140 on Amazon. I'm very happy that I bought it, the build quality feels great and it looks amazing. People are definitely right when they say that pictures don't do this watch a justice (my phone's camera doesn't help) because in person it is beautiful. I've had my SNZG15 for a while now, and I have no doubt that this Sea Urchin will serve me well.

u/chocolatechipbrownie · 2 pointsr/breastfeeding

After I did a bunch of research and talked to other full time working Mamas, I ended up with the Medela Freestyle- I love it. It's a double pump electric and a rechargeable battery. So, just my $.02.

But, other advice, seriously La Leche saved me as well, I went to a few meetings before hand and when I had some problems, I had numbers to call and helping voices to guide me through.

The other thing I HIGHLY recommend is getting a hands-free bustier. I got this one (http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Wishes-Hands-Free-Breastpump-XS/dp/B00295MQLU) and love it. I can work on the computer, walk around my office, whatever while pumping. And, you can just use it over your nursing bra, so you don't even have to get naked in the office. Worth it. Good luck!

u/ContinentalRektfast · 1 pointr/AskMen

you might like some of the Timex watches, these two are my favorite

i've gotten a lot of compliments on the 2nd one (which i own). the only problem i find with it is the the band is kinda wonky, but it's nothing i'd worry about. for the first few weeks i thought it was a lot more fragile than it was, but i found that the trick was to just have it 1 notch less than too tight, so that it fit on but it had room to move as well.

the band problem is remedied by the 1st one, but imo the band looks sexier on the 2nd.

timex is really one of my favorite watch companies because they have a lot of watches with the aesthetic i like.

if you want, i can post a picture of what the watch looks like on my wrist. i have very small wrists too and the fact that i found one that i love surprised me.

u/notaneggspert · 1 pointr/Watches

Right now this $10 Casio is the only slightly dressy watch I have.

I like it but the crystal (plastic?) has gotten more and more scratched from general wear. I don't think I want a nylon band since the watch will get wet frequently if I wear it while working.

I don't have a lot of money to spend but would like to get a slightly nicer analog watch with a date function for under $100. I plan to use this watch while bartending so it will be splashed in triple sinks for a few hours every day. But I might just wear the Casio I have now while working since it's already slightly dickerd and only $10.

So far I've found these two through Amazon:

$21 Tonnier

$29 Timex Easy Reader

If someone had a gun to my head I'd buy the Timex but I'm not in a rush to buy and need to do more research.

I'll link a few more to get an idea of the style I'm looking for. Definitely looking for a smaller watch that won't get in the way or snagged on stuff.


$22 Biden

$20 Curren

$24 VAVC

Didn't do much research into those last couple but just linking the style I'm looking for and I'll add some more on. I like high contrast black/white faces but I'm also cool with red/brown/blue accents but the more color neutral the better.

u/parallaxarcsecond · 3 pointsr/Watches

I'm just getting into watches again and this is my first automatic. I've been enjoying reading this subreddit and watching a lot of Youtube watch channels and picked up that the Seiko 5 line is a great entry level watch. Most people recommend the 809, but I didn't want to go for that one as I've already got my eye on a few other higher-end Flieger-type watches, so I wanted to find something different in the Seiko 5 line and this one caught my eye: https://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNK789-Analog-Automatic-Silver/dp/B0018N0HL0. I've had it a week and it's been great. It's surprisingly high quality and looks even better in person than it does in pictures. I just put it on a NATO yesterday and that's been a nice change, too, although the bracelet it comes with is not bad, IMO.

u/lov_liv · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I use the Medela Pump in Style Advance (free through my insurance). Are you going to be pumping due to a return to work? The version my insurance provided doesn't include the extras that came with the PISA when my sister purchased hers in 2011 (prior to Obamacare), like the backpack, the battery pack, the cooler bag, and freezer pack. My sister gave me hers, so I use all of these things and would recommend purchasing them or something like them if you will be pumping at work.

I also recommend a Simple Wishes hands free pumping bra. My lactation consultant recommended watching this video to learn tips about maximizing production: http://newborns.stanford.edu/Breastfeeding/MaxProduction.html, and I use these techniques throughout my pumping sessions every day.

I pump twice a day at work - at 10am and 2pm - for 20 minutes each time, not including set up and take down time. I keep my milky pump parts in a gallon ziplock bag in a mini fridge (that I bought on sale at Best Buy for $99) behind my desk after the morning pump session. Since they are refrigerated, I don't have to go rinse or wash them in the communal office kitchen sink between pumping sessions. I take them home every night and wash in hot, soapy water, and then I sterilize them in the Medela sterilizing bags in the microwave. I let them dry overnight on the Boon grass lawn drying racks. I have multiple sets of pump parts and bottles because sometimes they don't fully dry overnight. I also wash and reuse the ziplocks, but I plan on replacing them with PlanetWise clear storage bags (which are top rack dishwasher safe) to reduce waste. I keep one complete set of extra pump parts and bottles in my desk at work just in case I forget something - it's already saved me once!

To stimulate let down at work, I bring a slightly used burp cloth that smells like baby (smell is one of your strongest senses!), I watch videos or look at pictures of baby, and it sounds weird, but I close my eyes and visualize my hungry baby. The visualization plus the smell of the burp cloth does it almost every time.

Please let me know if you have any more specific questions!

ETA: My daughter was 20 weeks when I went back to work and she only took 5-8oz the first week at daycare, but I think that was just her adjusting to the transition. Now she takes between 10-14oz on average. I usually pump about 12-13oz. I built up a small freezer stash before going back to work just in case she outpaces me.

u/tweebles · 8 pointsr/running

Finding the right sports bra can be tricky. My suggestions:

  • Have you tried any encapsulation bras? Personally, I prefer them because I find them to be more supportive. Instead of compression bras (which work by squishing everything down), they encapsulate each breast individually to keep them from moving. I like the Panache Sport a lot.

  • Sports bras that have regular bra sizes instead of bras that have the general S/M/L might work better for women who need a lot of support.

  • Have you been fitted recently? A good fit is really important when you are depending on the bra to provide strong support, especially when you're doing high-impact stuff. /r/abrathatfits has fitting information as well as a specific sports bra guide if you just want info on other brands.

u/IBeMadToo · 1 pointr/asktrp


  • A nice pair of chino's in black, navy, or stone
  • A pair of nice chino shorts that sit above the knee
  • Plain coloured tee's with no prints - I have black, white, navy, charcoal
  • A nice leather belt
  • A few pairs of shoes - Personally, I have Clarks, a pair of leather woven boat looking shoes like this, and some sneakers (eg. Nike Roshes) in white or black.

    I feel like those are essentials, anything after that is a bonus. You could add extras in like a simple watch (eg. Timex Weekender; straps are customizable), a suit/business attire, jackets such as a bomber jacket, or whatever else you think you need. It all comes down to what styles you are into tho!

    Good place to go for inspiration is r/malefashionadvice or r/frugalmalegashion if you have a strict budget. They have essentials guides for ya over there.
u/ClosetedCloset · 2 pointsr/Watches

I don't think it's terribly big but it's far too thick for your hand IMO. I'd look for thinner options if you want an automatic watch with lume (the stuff that makes the dial glow).

Unfortunately, you can't really get an automatic for that low unless you look at used options. BUT, I'd give the Seiko 5 lineup a glance.

Here's a watch that perfectly fits all of your specifications, That is: Under $100, Automatic, has Lume on the hands, and it should fit your wrist size.

  • Seiko SNK789

    Here's another:

  • Seiko SNKL07

    And another:

  • Seiko SNKK47

    I'd return it and keep looking around. The watch gave you a good idea of what wrist sizes you should be looking at. All of the watches above are between 36mm and 39mm respectively.

    Look through the Seiko 5 lineup. Alternatively, look around the used market or try to hunt for deals when they come up. Massdrop always has watches for sale so it's worth a shot there. There's also /r/Watchexchange to buy watches from other redditors. You can't do much with $100 but if you try something good will usually come along.
u/adamscottama · 3 pointsr/Watches

It sounds like a dive watch would be good for you because they are all very water resistant (I'm assuming you probably get your watches wet a lot), they have time lapse bezels to time your cooking, are usually tough and easy to read. So with that being said, here are some options across different price points and styles

  • Seiko Monster - Either black or orange. Well within your budget, workhorse 7s26 automatic movement, wr to 200m, 120 click time lapse bezel, great lume and bracelet.

  • Seiko SKX007. A lot like the monster (same movement, wr, crystal, lume etc) but a much more conservative design.

  • Hamilton Khaki King Scuba. A bit above $400 but it has a sapphire crystal, Swiss made ETA automatic movement, 100m wr, great build quality. The quartz version is a bit cheaper.

  • Orient Ray - Either black or Blue. Automatic, 200m wr, well under your budget, conservative and clean design.

  • Citizen EcoDrive. Quartz movement that runs off of a battery that is charged by any light source which means you'll never have to replace it. 200m wr.

  • Citizen EcoDrive. A lot like the one above, but with a chronograph function.

I always fed for about 15-20 minutes on one breast and then swapped him to the other and fed for another 10-15 minutes, then pumped both. I found if I didn't, I tended to get uncomfortable and leaky before he was hungry again.

Also, originally I thought it was a waste of money, as they're not cheap, but a good hands free pumping bra is a blessing. It lets you actually do things while you pump, even if 'things' is just play a game on your phone or eat lunch, otherwise you're stuck there holding the flanges on your boobs, which is a pain. I kind of felt like a cow in a milking bay, but the extra 15 minutes I had to do things was so useful I dealt with it. :)

I liked this one from Amazon. I think like most parenting, it's trial and error and trying to work out what works best for you and your baby. There are very few 'right' answers. :)

Do you want a completely yellow sports bra? Panache has a great sports bra that comes in actual bra sizes, and the geo print has some yellow in it, but not an overwhelming amount. It's also just a fabulous sports bra in general, I highly recommend it.

The coral colorway (it's called Print Multi on amazon for whatever reason) has a nice bright but not neon yellow edging to it.

u/dandanmichaelis · 4 pointsr/breastfeeding

So I feed my 3 month old daughter at about 5:30-6:00AM. I usually leave my house around 7:00. I've been power pumping the last few days to increase my pumping output (20 min on, 10 min rest, 10 min on, 10 rest, 10 on, and quit) but normally I would only pump 20-25 minutes. After that first pump of the day I pump at 11:00 for 25 min and then again at 3:00 for 25 min. Those sessions usually get me enough milk for the next day at daycare (four 4 oz bottles so total of 16 ounces). I'm going to start pumping right before bed to maybe work up a little stash! The car pump gets me the most output since it's earlier in the morning.

I have the Spectra S2. I really like it. I think it retails around $300 in the US if insurance wouldn't buy it. If you are committed to pumping while at work I would definitely invest in a dual, hospital grade pump. My pumping bra is this one. When I'm ready to pump I just pull my shirt and bra up and strap on the pumping bra. So far I have no complaints! I have yet to find a pumping bra I would wear in replacement of a real bra.

When pumping make sure to have the correct fitting breast flanges! That's really important. Mine were too small and my supply started dropping just after a week. The correct fitting ones make a big difference in comfort and output.

Umm... DRINK all the water and EAT all the food!

That's kind of a review of my setup :)

That'll be a pretty tight price point for something "cool". As far as sizing, look in the watch description for the case size. 40mm or smaller will work fine on a small wrist. From there, I'd go to Amazon and search Men's Timex Watch -- that's one of two companies who make decent watches in the $20 range. The other is Casio but they tend to make bigger watchs that might be too large for your wrist.

Something like https://www.amazon.com/Timex%C2%AE-Reader-Brown-Leather-T20041/dp/B000B55AEA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1473330695&sr=8-1&keywords=men%27s+timex+watch will be a classy looking every day option and it's well sized for your wrist.

I am looking for a recommendation on a new watch to get. I normally wear a Moto 360 smart watch to class, but have several other watches that I wear. If I'm not wearing my smart watch I usually wear a Timex Weekender or a Bulova. I am looking to spend $150 or less on something that I can wear casually or dress up. I have seen many people here talking about the Seiko 5, and I particularly like the SNZF17 model found here:


However I am not aware of the difference between that one and this one:


Even though the latter is $50 more. I like this specific model because it reminds me of the Rolex Submariner, but i can actually afford it. I also like the Invicta 8926OB found here


But I have heard poor reviews of Invicta watches, even though I have heard good things about that specific model. I guess I would like someone better versed in wtches to point me in the right direction for what I am looking for.

So I grabbed this weekender years ago as a whatever happens happens watch https://smile.amazon.com/Timex-Unisex-T2N651-Weekender-Slip-Thru/dp/B004VR9HP2/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1491660639&sr=1-1&nodeID=7141123011&psd=1&keywords=timex+weekender
and its been GREAT but I think now its time to upgrade. Id like to spend less than $400 and i'm staying away from movement charged automatics. I had a seiko 5 and was setting it all the time. Im leaning towards https://smile.amazon.com/Citizen-BM8180-03E-Eco-Drive-Analog-Japanese/dp/B000EQS1JW/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1491660895&sr=1-1&nodeID=7141123011&psd=1&keywords=citizen+eco+drive but seeing as how this will be my new daily driver Im open to spending more for a much better watch (within reason). Thank you guys a million fold for any suggestions and for this sub in general. Its awesome

I like these they apparently don’t have the exact brand I got last time but this style is pretty comfy. I got xl so I’d be sure they’d fit pp and they worked great. I also ended up using the band extenders because of my ribs separating.

u/P695 · 3 pointsr/Watchexchange

Up for sale is my Seiko SNZF17 with modded bezel insert. Seiko SNZF17 specs. I recently found a semi grail so now I need to let a few go. I bought this watch used and have had the watch less than 6 months with minor wear as you might expect with no marks on crystal or bezel that I can see. Keeps good time but I haven't officially checked. Comes with everything in the picture including the original bezel insert if you want to put it back on.
Asking $115 shipped to CONUS. Please feel free to ask questions and thank you for looking.

u/pollyatomic · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I recently picked up a couple of the Panache underwire sports bras that sound like they fit your criteria almost perfectly. I got them in 32DD, but they go up to at least DDD/E+. They have multicolored, but I grabbed a solid back and a solid white (on sale at my local running store!). They hook in back and also have a small hook on the straps to convert to racerback if you prefer it. They seem a bit more suited for FoT (which I'm not), but I've been quite happy with them regardless. I'm quite glad I found them!

u/pocketsked · 2 pointsr/Watches

I'm gonna just throw a bunch of stuff here, maybe one of these will be what you're looking for:

For the Quartz, I recommend something kinda fun, but still minimalist like you mentioned.

Elliot Havok a newer brand, but I hear good things. I looked at their return policy, you can return it unused if you don't like the looks of it. If I were looking for a quartz watch, this would be at the top of my list (I have way too many watches at the moment)

Breda makes
a nice quartz. I've seen one on person. They are not super slick, but also very reasonably priced. Again, return it if you're not loving it. But, no date function.

Sasqwatch again, no date function, but a nice sub-$100 watch.

Nixon makes a ton of watches. These are what people call "fashion watches" but still, tons of styles.

Again, no date, but Kimono you cannot beat the quality/price ratio.

[Timex Expedition](Timex Unisex T2N651 Weekender Olive Nylon Slip-Thru Strap Watch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004VR9HP2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_5v0JzbTJHHK0Q) you can knock this thing around and it'll keep going.

Skagen makes a great watch.

OK, tapped out on quartz. Give me time to type out a couple of affordable automatic options.

My day was pretty good for the most part. Then I noticed my dog licking his special place like crazy and started dribbling all over the floor, I think he has a UTI so I'm waiting for the vet to call to take him in :( If you need a pick me up you could come hang out with us at Turn Table!

Thanks for the contest and I hope your day gets better! These are .39 and free ship!

u/Pliskin01 · 1 pointr/Watches

I understand completely! It's a big world of watches these days. I always recommend picking up a seiko 5. Here's one that's 36mm. I'd also recommend checking out the watches on /r/watchexchange. There are good deals and good people to be found over there. Best of luck!


edit: and of course check out the buying guide here on /r/watches.

Looking for somebody to score the TIMEXCM50 promo discount (I know it's "expired", but it's possible to still get it applied, I see) on this watch and then ship it to me after receiving it.

I'm in Australia and this item doesn't ship here, and every outlet offering Timex watches has them at $50-$100. With the 50% off, the watch is $10.69, and I will pay that plus whatever the shipping happens to be.

Really need it to gift to somebody, so the help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys, PM me if you're willing to help with it!

Hi I have small wrists as well, I just purchased a Timex Easyreader, http://www.amazon.com/Timex-T20041-Reader-Brown-Leather/dp/B000B55AEA/ref=sr_1_3?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1310176569&sr=1-3, along with the NATO bond strap, http://www.amazon.com/Ballistic-Nylon-Watchband-Black-Stripes/dp/B0047MQMR2/ref=sr_1_1?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1310176615&sr=1-1, total is like 40 bucks and it looks great! the face is 35mm, perfect for smaller wrists like ours, hope this helps.

u/Iophobic · 27 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've been there. I found that buying actual running shoes and workout clothes (rather than wearing old college tees and cotton leggings) was a great motivator. I told myself that I didn't buy these things just to have them go to waste (and a small part of me liked showing off my ~fabulous shoe and shirt combos~). As I started exercising more, my matching game became A++ and I invested in more expensive items (specifically, a good, supportive sports bra)

I would start off buying cheaper workout clothes rather than diving into "nicer" brands like Lululemon. Old Navy and Target (and apparently Forever21?) have great affordable options. I've also gotten great deals at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and outlet stores

u/Hollowlife6 · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon


Grand total: $19.93! gifting is fun.

This is a really awesome contest idea!!! I hope you don't mind if I use it down the road?

u/punkrockextravaganza · 30 pointsr/Watches

I just graduated from high school and I wanted to get myself a small watch reminiscent of those generic clocks they have in all the classrooms. The Timex Easy Reader was the cheapest and classiest looking option.
It's exactly as the name describes, an easy reader. The dial is a very light silver which I'd rather be plain white but oh well. Day-date is a nice touch. Indiglo is also nice. It's just a nice little 35 mm watch. I also put a new strap on it if anybody was wondering.

u/KristiiRexx · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I love my Spectra -- well as much as one can love a machine that sucks your nipples. I started pumping in the hospital with a Medela Symphony, and I get so much more milk with the Spectra.

I exclusively pumped for several weeks while LO was getting the hang of latching, so here are some tips:

I'd recommend getting a power invertor so you can pump in the car if you ever need to. I have this one from Amazon and it works great.

Prepare a "pump bag" to hold all your supplies -- hands-free bra (I have the Simple Wishes bra), pump, storage bags and bottles, permanent marker to label storage bags, a little container of olive oil to lube up my flanges (helps to prevent rubbing), small kitchen rags to wipe up milk, extra pump parts, etc. I use an LL Bean tote bag to transport everything.

In between pumps, I store all my pump parts in a gallon ziploc bag and stick it in the fridge so I don't have to wash them after every pump.

u/SirLaxer · 1 pointr/Watches

Under $100, with that particular style, I'd recommend the Timex Weekender. You can throw on a NATO strap if you can't find a Weekender with a band you particularly like, but if you just search for "Timex" in men's watches you may find a similar model you like.


If you like the look of the chronographs, though (that's the first watch in your pictures), you can get this watch and buy a leather strap with the money you're saving.


Make sure to check out the customer images in the reviews for both of those; despite their price; they look pretty slick.

u/UnaccompaniedMinor · 8 pointsr/AskMen

I know this is r/AskMen, but I'd like to chime in as a woman who also generally goes braless (I'm a small B cup). My issue with going braless was the prominence of my nipples. They just seem to want everyone to look at them and that made me way too self conscious. I bought these and I love them! Now I can be braless and comfortable without it being obvious.

u/hazelowl · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies

Yes. It's this one.

It's awesome because it is super adjustable (big issue for me with my smaller ribcage and bigger boobs) and is wider so it actually covers and provides a little support. And the holes are nicer.

u/Cat_Wings · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

On Amazon they have "womens" and "unisex" versions of the weekender listed.

Or perhaps she would like a swatch? I recently got this one and I love it. It's fun and colorful and comfortable.

  • Water bottle: Klean Kanteen 64 ounce stainless steel - $30
  • Phone: I might buy a cheap MetroPCS phone w/ $25 plan
  • Wallet: Alpine Swiss - $12
  • Watches: I'd be happy with a black and brown Timex Easy Reader - $25 each. Fossil would be my next level, but what are some some even better watches?
  • Flashlight: This is hard because I love my light but it's discontinued. It would have to be a single AAA light with a reversible pocket clip. Maybe a Lenser P2 - $17

    That's just about my current EDC. I'm planning on eventually buying the carabiner, key knife, tweezers, and I'll probably go with a desantis pocket mag carrier opposed to the 3x more expensive Milt Sparks.
u/UziSauce · 0 pointsr/malefashionadvice

the boots are definitely great!

you should look at getting a timex weekender or similar. 32 bucks or so. can't beat that. it'll go with a lot and you can change the NATO strap to match your outfit.

regarding the cardigan, it looks like the shoulder seems fall a little outside the shoulder. the only reason i think you could go down one size. doesn't look bad at all... just nitpicking, i suppose.

ninja edit: i'd also get your jeans one size longer on your next purchase... that'll allow you to roll the cuff (IMO, looks great on a longer jean) and you can always have them hemmed if you don't like the length.

u/RowingPanda · 3 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I'd like to second the easy reader, as a super skinny dude myself. I just bought this one, with a brown strap and it sounds a lot like what you're looking for, OP. Also it's super cheap.

u/prefinished · 8 pointsr/xxfitness

Panache has some cute colors and they're great bras. I have mine in Geo Print and my fellow pole girls kept complimenting me on it. Just mouse through the colors, there's more than generic solids in there. :)


I know you said 30C, but in this brand, as a 28H I wear a 30FF. Amazon has a great return system anyways!

u/90daysandout · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

My first impression is that it reminds me of fishing watches - and this is largely because of that suede brown band with a visible logo.

The entire watch has a very rugged look and the face itself is not as classic and simplistic as the weekender or easy-reader. So if you're going for a more day-to-day casual watch I'd definitely recommend the other two.

As for choosing between the weekender and easy-reader: the easy-reader is 3mm smaller in diameter and has a less cluttered face than the weekender. I'd say this version with the brown leather strap is a good bet.

Hope that helps.

u/Holkan · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Went for this strap by Hirsch http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009NK6OHG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00

I've got a black face Skagen with black leather strap coming for Christmas which I intend to use for work (black leather shoes/black leather belt.)http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skagen-Analogue-Leather-SKW6104-Quartz/dp/B00O13IJ82/ref=sr_1_12?s=watch&ie=UTF8&qid=1450886945&sr=1-12&keywords=black

Went for the SNK289 as it has a white face and the brown leather strap will go well with my smart casual wear which tends to be brown leather shoes, brown leather belt.

Nice to have some variety.

u/zygie · 2 pointsr/Watches

Sure. The Japanese are kings of value at that price point, and you'll have a fair share of selections from a few brands, types of movement (automatic/mechanicals, quartz, UHF quartz, solar quartz, etc.) and styles (diver, field, pilot, chrono, etc.) all good for day-to-day wear.

A good place to start is look through listings from Seiko, Orient, Citizen, and Casio's Edifice line.

A few examples:

Seiko SNZG13 - automatic field/military style

Orient Defender - automatic field style - also comes in blue

Seiko SNZF17(black) / SNZF15(blue/pepsi bezel) - automatic diver style

Seiko SNZH55/53/57 - automatic black, blue, and black/gold diver style

Various Seiko chronographs on bracelets - quartz movements

Orient Mako II and Ray II - automatic diver style watches with an upgraded movement over the Seiko automatics

Various Casio Edifice chronographs on bracelets - quartz movements

There's a lot more not limited to these brands as well - I'm sure other people can recommend you something nice. I've excluded models not on a bracelet - but if you change your mind you can also look through Citizen and Bulova's offerings.

Here's the current buying guide on $0-$250 watches.

If you really like the MVMT, just buy it, but do so knowing what you're actually getting. The particular model you linked has a chronograph but doesn't even have markings on the subdials, so the chronograph is kinda pointless - how can you tell which dial is which?

u/sockbears · 3 pointsr/loseit

I would recommend trying out a wired sports bra if you can. Having a bra that encapsulates your breasts instead of compressing them really helps with comfort, support, and prevents uniboobing. I have this one by panache and I love it.

u/writerdust · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

If these are the ones you're talking about on Amazon, I bought them. They're not particularly attractive, but they're comfortable and supportive. I'm a 36C heading towards D now, for reference- I think if I was much bigger, I would need more support. I also think the pads will get a little bumpy as I keep washing them, but I'm going to switch them out for nursing pads soon anyway so I'm not too concerned. For $25 bucks, they work and like another bumper said, I don't want to spend too much money till my milk actually comes in and my boobs explode.

I just couldn’t justify buying regular bras for a relatively short period. I’ve loved these. Way more comfortable than the underwire I was used to, supports me well, and I have room to grow.

u/pelvicmomentum · 1 pointr/Watches

Watches like Seiko's SKX007, SKX013 or SNZH57 are much better quality watches, and would be great for you because they have a very healthy modding community. You can buy all of the bezel inserts you want to use with a SXK007/SNZH57/SKX013 and swap them yourself. You can even change everything to make it look just like a blancpain fifty fathoms.

u/Desi_US · 1 pointr/Watches

Thank you for the detailed post on buying guide , $0 to $250. I have hardly used any watches before. Based on the guide I have decided to buy a Quartz watch. My budget is $100. Help me decide a watch from the list below. Thanks.

List: 1) Men's BM8240-03E Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Watch with Leather Band


2) Intelligent Quartz Fly-Back Chronograph Watch


3) Seiko Men's SNDC31 Classic Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch with Brown Leather Band


4) Men's BM8180-03E Eco-Drive Analog Japanese Quartz Green Watch


5) Weekender 40mm Case Slip-Thru Strap Watch


6) Seiko Men's SNDC89P2 Leather Synthetic Analog with Black Dial Watch


I'm looking to buy a watch that I can use everyday -formal,casual setting with minimal maintenance. I haven't used a watch in years so there may be times when I won't use a watch. Based on the buying guide, I feel a Quartz watch may be better suited for me than an Automatic. I can't really finalize a watch from the list. Your advice/recommendations will help!

u/CY550 · 2 pointsr/breastfeeding

I also exclusively pump. I do both sides at the same time, because when I was breastfeeding he would eat off both sides each time. I make sure to pump every time my LO gets a bottle. I find that a pumping bra (such as this one) is useful for letting me multitask when pumping. I use a boppy pillow to prop my LO up after feeding (once he was a few weeks old) so he can be next to me while I pump. I can interact with him and make sure he’s happy. He’s not a fan of lying flat on his back.

Feel free to message me if you have any questions!

u/Captain_-H · 2 pointsr/Watches

The watch that everyone on this forum is sick of hearing about because of its bang for your buck is the Seiko 5. The Seiko 5 is actually a line of watches and while most people think of the military looking ones there are actually several dress versions of the Seiko 5. Here is one example, and at this price you can afford to get a leather band as well. This way you can have both the metal bracelet and the leather strap to interchange as they are relatively easy to change.

Also take a look at some of the FAQs on this sub and you can google it as well but you may want to read about why we all love mechanical watches so much.

Good luck!

I exclusively pumped for a year! My boy was born at 37 weeks and just wasn’t big enough to get a good latch, so I began pumping when his weight gain wasn’t where it should be. Here’s some tips that kept my sanity throughout that year.

  1. Join an exclusive pumpers support group. There are several very good ones on Facebook.
  2. Invest in a good pumping bra. This was my favorite.

  3. Pump at the same intervals that you are feeding the babe. It will be exhausting in the beginning, but as you drop feedings, you will drop pumps and it will be more manageable.
  4. Sunflower lecithin is a miracle worker if you get a stubborn clog.

    You can do this! Best of luck!

u/eclipse75 · 22 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Usually there are always debates about a Seiko and the Citizen Eco Drive watch. You can get a Seiko automatic mechanical watch for under $150 that uses the popular and reliable 7s26 movement. Another popular watch would be one of the Orient Mako dive watches. I already own a Seiko SNK807 watch and just ordered a Seiko Orange Monster online (both of which use the 7s26 movement).

The reason why I chose the Seiko over the Citizen is because I wanted mechanical watch with the sweeping second hand rather than a quartz jumping second hand. But, with the Citizen, it'll never stop (unless you live in a cave or the sun blows up). Automatic watches will stop after about 40 hours of no movement.

Orient Mako is a very popular dive watch. It comes in a wide variety of colors (with black and blue being most popular). http://www.amazon.com/Orient-CEM65001B-Black-Automatic-Watch/dp/B001EWEQ3A/ref=sr_1_22?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1325124897&sr=1-22

Here is the one I own. The SNK80* comes in various ways also. Black, blue, nylon strap, metal bracelet, green, rubber strap, etc

The odd looking orange monster I just ordered and can't wait to get it :D Comes in orange or black with a rubber strap or metal bracelet http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SKX781-Orange-Monster-Automatic/dp/B000EPLR2G/ref=sr_1_1?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1325125001&sr=1-1

Quartz is more accurate I believe, though mechanical watches are usually accurate to +/- 5 to 10 seconds a week (or was it day?). If the watch isn't solar powered then you'll need to replace the battery on the watch every so often. Also with the non-stop Invicta watches you see on Amazon, I've heard some people say some bad things. For sure brands though are Citizen, Orient, and Seiko in your price range. I don't know how BI4L they'll be though. Don't solar panels lose their effieciency over time? Also the 7s26 movement uses a few plastic gears. I don't know much about the insides of the Mako. They should all last 30 years easily though with some maintenance (taking for a tune up every 5-10 years).

I bought a smart watch U8 its called( to celebrate losing 2 stone). Then last month, I decided to buy a proper watch for my birthday.

I missed out on a second hand, Seiko 5, on Ebay. Showed my friend, & he bought me a brand new one from Amazon. SNK789
Loved it, but since I missed out on ebay, they kept showing other Seiko 5's from India. So I bought another, just to wear daily, to keep the new one for special occasions, like the weekend.
Found this community, & I have been looking at other watches on Amazon & ebay. Damn! I keep buying watches now. I just bought a Casio Diver's watch

I got an old display cabinet from a charity shop, I volunteer at, to display all my old film cameras. But now, it has more watches than cameras.
I need to un-sub from here.

u/triedtosay · 21 pointsr/weddingplanning

It looks like you don't need a whole lot of support, just nipple coverage? If so, and if the cups are sewn on top of the lining, you could carefully remove them yourself and just use stick on covers like these.
I use them all the time, and they are SO comfortable, you won't even know they're there. I'll be using them on my wedding day (I have a similar neckline to yours, also backless).

Description: The best value watch available in my opinion. Looks pretty good, lasts a long time, water resistant to 30 feet. Can't beat for a beater watch or just an everyday sorta thing

u/bh012 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I think that the reason you are not getting feedback is because your post isn't as concise as it could be; additionally, most people like to look at a picture or two and then reply with a short thought. Remove extraneous information next time (your measurements / details on clothes) and perhaps elaborate on what your job is.

That being said, I'm guessing you've already made your way through the sidebar so I'll try not to rehash too much information.

My thoughts (mostly personal preference/opinion, take it as you like):

  1. If possible, don't let your undershirt show (try a white v-neck).
  2. The pumas look kind of goofy on their own (in my opinion) and aren't appropriate for business casual attire. The boat shoes are fine but still probably not business casual.
  3. For sneakers and other shoes refer to the sidebar's shoe guide. As a beginner, you may be interested in the oft-recommended Clarks Desert Boot in beeswax (which is dressier than the Pumas but still casual-- I still don't know if this will fit into your dress code) or a full-blown dress shoe.
  4. I personally dislike both the shirts you posted. I'm not fond of the contrasting button style and I think black button-downs are universally ugly; simple is better. I also prefer this style of [button-up shirts] (http://www.primermagazine.com/2012/spend/the-essential-ocbd-oxford-cloth-button-down-with-10-picks-to-start) and I would wear them either tucked or untucked. Brands to look for are Uniqlo (slim fit) and Brooks Brothers (extra slim fit) and I like white, light blue, and pink as colors.
  5. I have no experience with TailorStore so I have no comment there but if you want to stick with them I'd get the button down collar, remove the plaid trim, and get mother of pearl buttons.
  6. You should definitely get grey wool trousers instead of another pair of black pants.
  7. I say no to suspenders, just get a belt that matches your shoes.
  8. The Timex Weekender is a good watch, I like this color scheme.

    How I'd spend $500:

  • JCPenney Stafford Wingtip Shoe
  • A sneaker for casual wear outside of work (I like J. Crew x Nike Killshots 2) or Clarks Desert Boot
  • Uniqlo Slim OCBD in white, pink, light blue
  • Grey wool trousers
  • Navy chinos
  • Timex Weekender
  • V-neck undershirts (maybe from Uniqlo?)

I was in need of a brown leather-strapped watch (and by need, I mean I just wanted one pretty bad) so did some reading up on this one. It's a Timex Easy Reader that I purchased here. I considered the Timex Weekender after reading a GQ article on it, but I wanted a leather strapped watch so I went with this.

I'm very happy with it, especially for the price. It is really clean and didn't expect this sort of quality from Timex.

well - do you want durable or a great watch or a little of both?

for 200 dollars I cannot recommend a Seiko Monster highly enough. Nice looking, well built and well respected in the watch world.

There is a reason why it has 267 reviews and is a average 4.9 out of 5. it's a great great watch. it comes in black also. Yellow as well - but that one is rare and collectors have grabbed it.

30 bucks, meets all of your requirements except for the black leather band, but you can just buy a black leather band.


This one is probably the best choice if you’re comfortable removing the bracelet. SNK377, 37mm

u/west90403 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Rolex is an awesome watch. If you want to get something similar looking without breaking the bank, you could look into the Seiko Sea Urchin. The style is similar to the classic Rolex Submariner design and Seiko makes good watches. Gear Patrol did a review of this watch. You can read it here. I own this watch and it looks very good in person. Recommend without reservations.

u/TheBoble · 2 pointsr/Watches

Hi all. I'm looking into purchasing a new watch with a budget of about $250. I want to get something a little dressier, as most of what I have tends to be more "sport" looking.

I understand Seiko fits some of these requirements, but I just don't love how they look. I was considering this https://www.amazon.com/Citizen-Eco-Drive-Quartz-Stainless-Leather/dp/B079995GSP
It is somewhat between sport and dress, and I love the silver face.

If possible, I'd like something solar powered. I have big wrists so anything less than 40mm looks tiny on my arm.


Edit: I take back what I said about Seiko and I'm considering this boi https://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNZH55-Automatic-Black-Stainless/dp/B0045D6570/ref=pd_sbs_241_42?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0045D6570&pd_rd_r=0fe56069-b6d5-11e8-b96a-75051c3f57a5&pd_rd_w=5FeUn&pd_rd_wg=C4sYy&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=8017971983328801850&pf_rd_r=F7H19SASNW0D43Y3ES1R&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=F7H19SASNW0D43Y3ES1R

u/itgetsharder · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I don't know what a hipster style watch means, can you give examples?
I'm a huge fan or Timex watches because I really like the clean aesthetic and size. They make a Thru Nylon Strap watch that might protect you from your nickel allergy. Although, I have a very mild nickel allergy and I wear their leather strapped watches without trouble.
Watch facts: Ladies watches have smaller faces than the unisex watches. Most watch bands are interchangeable.

u/mynameistheodb · 1 pointr/funhaus

Yeah, the Weekender is the one I ended up getting. I really like it, it fulfills the two tasks I require of a watch: 1) telling time and 2) not looking terrible. It's cheap enough (not $15 like I originally said, I paid $35) that you don't really even need to get it repaired, you could just buy another one. If it has sentimental value for you though, you do you.

u/lushpuppie · 0 pointsr/Watches

I don’t have any straps yet, but will probably be getting many, as well. I didn’t even think about this until you asked. It’s a great question, and I looked around and found this. I’ll probably get one, or something similar as there seems to be quite a few options (strap cases with clear display lids, etc.)

I own one. It's super loud. Like don't take this thing into a movie theater because its all you will hear loud. I love it so much. Band is 20mm so feel free to get tons of bands just change out whenever. Although mine has a gold face unlike the silver in OP's picture. Same watch otherwise though.

Edit: Typo'd the bandwidth and I should read more closely But I'll leave this up in case anyone is curious about the watch.

u/fingers-in-ears · 2 pointsr/konmari

If your cup size is small, try Nippies. I also have a wide rib cage with small breasts and bra fitting is very challenging. I don’t need a bra for support, just to keep my nipples from poking through my shirt. Nippies take care of that. I LOVE not having a band around my chest.

u/HaikoopedMyPants · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Honestly, I get the most compliments of any watch I own when I wear this simple Timex Weekender, and because it's so cheap, you can afford to buy a couple of other bands to add versatility. They're clean, go with pretty much every outfit, and work fine.

u/Thestigsfatcousin · 1 pointr/Watches

I think you best option is to either buy him a nice G-shock, or buy something like

This or This and just accept that he'll need it replaced every so often. The weekender looks kind of like the Bertucci you like, and I can personally vouch for the Casio Chronograph.

All that said, I would personally just buy a G-shock which will last him for a very long time. It is a little bit bulky, but it's going to be the toughest one to break. Also, if he doesn't genuinely want to wear the watch, he won't. He'll just put it on in the morning to make you happy and set it in his car as soon as he gets to work.

u/DebitsOnTheLeft · 3 pointsr/CFB

OP what style do you like? Do you ever visit /r/watches?

At the moment I go back and forth between two watches, but I'd certainly like to have more for more occasions.

I wear this one for work.

And this one for everything except work.

I'd say my style is definitely simple looking watches with white faces. Anyone have any other recommendations in that style?

u/hillshmill · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

My chest seems to be going through yet another growth spurt at 32 weeks, so I bought [this well reviewed 3-pack of nursing bras](Women's Full Cup Lightly Padded Wirefree Maternity Breastfeeding Nursing Bra Size L, 3PCS/Pack(Pink-Black-Beige) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_FNsAybWFAQS96) on Amazon. They haven't arrived yet, but they look comfy enough to wear for the next two months of maternity and then get me started in the postpartum time. For what it's worth, I started with a 34C pre-pregnancy and am now probably a 38D. My L sized sports bras still fit just fine. I switched to bras with no underwire by week 10 due to boob growth.

u/memmly · 2 pointsr/ABraThatFits

I have two of these bras and they're my favorite for running:

They have version without underwire too.

Edit: id like to clarify that i wear 28F and I'm very particular about having enough support while running. So this bra really does great

u/Pufflekun · 4 pointsr/adventuretime

It's nice, but you can get a Weekender for about the same price.

You could spend more money on a better color, but you can easily change the straps on Weekenders by just unthreading them, so I'd suggest going over to Crown & Buckle and picking out a strap that you like. This one looks incredible on red-second-hand Weekenders.

u/Variant_Peck · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

That's perfectly fine - besides, there is no need to put out a lot on a watch before you know what you like. Here are some suggestions, if they aren't your style, let me know what you prefer.

u/cpmsmith · 3 pointsr/FrugalMaleFashionCDN

Short answer: yes.

Ruthless as it is, I've tried stuff on in stores and then bought it on Amazon for cheaper—I've got some boots on the way now. I've also gotten a couple of staple watches for pretty good prices, but all of this is related to the fact that I have prime. Sometimes it's a weird system, as in the case of those boots, but if you're willing to learn how to work with it you can find pretty good stuff.

u/danipitas · 3 pointsr/breastfeeding

Have to use a pumping bra or hold it. This one is great and you can Velcro adjust the size to whatever size you need for it. Stick the breast shields in and then you are hands free.

I think the Orient Bambino would be a good pick (it's also available in a silver finish but black band so you'd have to change that yourself), more interesting than a sea of similar Bulova, Citizen, and Seiko quartz dress watches.

This Seiko Chronograph might be nice also but busier. And coming in well below budget is the Timex Forty Weekender.

u/theruthisloose · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I am a 30G (measured over at /r/ABraThatFits). I finally broke down and ordered the sports bra from Panache. Assuming you're all measured and properly fitted into the correct bra size, this thing is a miracle!

It doesn't use compression, but more of an encapsulation technique.. if that makes sense? It's the most amazing invention in the world of large-breasted athletes. If you can spare the cash, I would highly recommend it.

u/chickennoodlegoop · 1 pointr/Watches

Thanks! I like the SNK809 and SNKE063 and they definitely seem like an upgrade to my black Weekender that I'd definitely be interested in, but I'm ideally looking for an upgrade to my white Easy Reader… any ideas?

u/imaginaryideals · 53 pointsr/ABraThatFits

You should check the sidebar and measure yourself with the ABTF calculator. I don't know what kind of measuring guide JCPenney's provides, but a lot of mainstream stores use the +4 method, which is more likely to give you an uncomfortable bra size.

I noticed in another comment of yours that you mention wires poking out of your bras from stress. When I had this happen with my old bras, it was before I started wearing my correct size. Since switching from 34C to 30E/F, I haven't had similar issues.

If you have a Nordstrom Rack nearby, I strongly recommend checking it. Nonstandard sizes can be found on their clearance racks, although like all clearance items, YMMV for finding what you want. But it's a good way to find cheap bras. If you don't have one nearby but are in the US, Amazon, Bare Necessities and Bravissimo are good places to look online. Bare Necessities currently has a sale going on.

As for sports bras that have bra sizes, I personally wear Panache's underwire sports bra, and I like it. However, from my normal 30E/F, I went up a band size to 32E. If I tried my regular size in their sports bra it would be uncomfortably tight.

u/saskd · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

At that price I would go with a Seiko SNZH55. The Amazon picture kind of sucks, but if you do an image search you'll find some much better pictures. Spend the left over cash on a Hirsch Liberty strap. You'll have something that looks like this.

u/tanhan27 · 7 pointsr/blunderyears

Make sure you fit yourself properly first. Once you find your size, figure out your shape - different bra shapes will support different boob shapes, surprisingly.

If you want a Chronograph, then I agree 100% - this is a great choice. It's also available in a Black Bezel

There is also an older version of their non-solar Quartz diver with a Chronograph called the SNAE25 (I don't know that I would buy this one on Amazon as it doesn't come with warranty).

If you can give up the Chronograph, then you have the Monster and Classic Divers to look at.

I think, if my poor eyesight serves me right, that this watch has two subdials on the vertical axis, leading me to believe that it might be a chronograph watch.

Honestly I am pretty thrifty. But for the amount of time I spent pumping in the first 18 months, spending $25 on an actual hands free, strapless nursing bra was worth triple the price I paid. like this

Ok so there’s this nursing bra hack that works in a pinch, I’ve also heard about cutting holes in a sports bra. I’ve bought this bra from amazon and it’s pretty good. I want to buy the kindred bravely nursing/pump bra when I go back to work though.

u/aleii1 · 7 pointsr/Parenting

I also had a difficult time breastfeeding so I switched to exclusive pumping. My son is now 13 months old, and I still pump. I have a few tips which might help.

1 - she needs to have a good pumping bra in order to leave her hands-free. I didn't know this at the beginning and spent so much time holding the pump flanges for 20+ minutes at a time, while hurting my hands because you have to keep them still to retain suction. Now, I pump while I'm eating dinner, on the computer, while feeding my son a bottle of pumped milk, or even while traveling in the car. This is the bra that I use and its great. It's got velcro in the back and holds well. I could not have made it without this bra. I can still pump while holding my 13 month old son, using this bra (though its awkward!)

2 - The first 3 months is when supply gets solidified, so be very sure what she wants to do before dropping pumps. Its more difficult to reestablish a supply than continue a good one, of course. But its always an option to supplement with formula, which I did as well.

3 This board is for exclusive pumpers and it is insanely active hah. Any questions posted there will get a very quick response.

Its tough but consider pumping at least twice a day to keep giving your baby the antibodies - apparently if you pump less, the concentration of antibodies is higher.

u/_becca · 10 pointsr/beyondthebump

Can't recommend the Simple Wishes pumping bra enough. I just pull up my shirt, unclip or pull down whatever I have on as a bra or undershirt, and zip the bra on. It takes like ten seconds and allows me to get a ton of work done while pumping. It's around $30 and has held up really well for me. They sell the same one at Target (branded as Lansinoh) but it doesn't come with the extra extender thing included like the Amazon one does.

When my SIL had her baby a month after I had mine, she unexpectedly had to start exclusively pumping her first week PP, and I bent over backwards to deliver her one of these bras the day she started. That's how essential it is to me! She bought a second one the next day.

Aside from pumping bras, you could also consider Pumpin' Pals. They allow you to lean back when you're pumping instead of having to awkwardly hunch forward. I haven't tried them myself but I've heard good things.
