However, the most interesting  piece of swag that was even trending on Twitter almost immediately, were Jockey's "tit cups" (as they were labled by the blogosphere).Here are 8 things you can do with your 'tit cups' if you haven't thrown them out yet.1.

Each one I read was wonderful, detailing the unique camaraderie between bloggers, discussing the brands at the Expo Hall, and summing up what each blogger learned both from the sessions and their own personal experiences. As a writer and a health advocate, I can’t sit still without using my own voice about BlogHer from the point of view of a midlifer and someone living with a disability. ...more
