As a style blogger, influencer, and public relations agent, Brittany Rendak isn’t afraid to juggle a lot. On social media she’s built an uplifting community of women with whom she shares her best style advice for bigger busts, favorite things to do in LA, and tips for making it in the entertainment industry.
We recently chatted with Brittany on fashion, body confidence, and how she stays motivated to chase her dreams. Keep reading our Q&A with Brittany below.
Hi, Brittany! We’re so excited to chat with you today. Can you share a bit about what inspired you to start sharing your life on social media?
I majored in Journalism in college and have always had a love for writing and social media. When I arrived in LA, I started sharing my experiences and things to do around the city. It started out just for fun and then I quickly realized I could make money off of something I was so passionate about doing.
You share a lot about your experience moving from the midwest to Los Angeles. How did this move change your life?
That move changed my life in SO many ways. I had been dreaming of moving to LA since I can remember. I always wanted to work in the entertainment industry and what better place to go than LA? I moved at the age of 23 with a job that paid me $13 an hour, two suitcases and big dreams of making it in the industry. I got my first job in the entertainment industry in less than a year of living here and started my own blog.
What do you love most about living in LA?
There are so many things I love about living in LA and a few things that I could live without — like the traffic and high rent. My favorite thing is that you are never bored living here. There is something exciting going on in this city at any time. I love being surrounded by so many other inspirational people who are also here working hard to accomplish their dreams.
Can you share some of your tips for other women trying to break into the entertainment industry?
Yes! I actually wrote a blog post all about this. Everyone’s path will be different, but once you get your foot in the door, you will keep climbing. One of the most important things you need to break into the industry is experience. You might need to take an internship or a low paying job, so you can use that experience as a stepping stone to land your next big gig.
My next tip is network and go meet people in similar fields that you are interested in. This business like many other businesses is all about the relationships you build. Don’t be afraid to cold email after you apply for a job or if you find someone interesting on LinkedIn that you would like to chat with. You will get a lot of no’s, but you can’t let that get you down. Don’t be afraid of failure, use it as motivation. Confidence is key!
How do you balance your work as an influencer and your day job?
Great question! It’s a lot of work, but when you are passionate about something you make time for it. I work my day job in PR in the music industry at a record label. I spend my weekday nights and lunch break catching up on my work as an influencer. I dedicate my weekends to shooting, editing and batching my content. I work from home most days of the week, so I save a lot of time without a commute in LA traffic. My day job always comes first and I use my free time to work on my influencer content. It is not easy, but I absolutely love it!

What are your favorite things to do around LA on your days off?
Relaxing at the beach, hiking, going shopping, trying out a new restaurant or happy hour with friends. I love being outdoors and exploring the city whenever I have time off.
You blog about style and share your favorite brands and outfits for women with larger chests. Why is this important for you to share?
I do! Growing up, I didn’t have too many “role models” I was able to follow that had bodies like mine. It wasn’t very represented in the media or it was represented with a negative sexual connotation. That’s why I started sharing fashion inspiration for other girls with bigger busts. It is sometimes very difficult to find clothing that works for us.
What are your top style tips for women with bigger busts?
One of my top style tips would be not to cover yourself up, but highlight your best features. It’s all about being confident and dressing for your body type. A v-neck, scoop or smocked style is really flattering. These styles extend the neckline to give you a balanced proportion. A high neckline makes your chest appear bigger. I am a big fan of jumpsuits and dresses. They can really streamline your silhouette. Also having the right bra size is crucial. It does suck that I can’t really ever go braless or backless…but oh well!
What does body confidence mean to you?
Body confidence can mean many different things to people. For me, it’s when a person feels confident about the way they look and embraces what they were given. We all come in different shapes and sizes. When you have body confidence, you have chosen to not just be happy with the way you look, but to display CONFIDENCE! Flaunt what you got. Surround yourself with other positive people that lift you up and recognize that every body is beautiful. There’s nothing sexier than a woman who is confident and comfortable in her own skin.

Which Glamorise bra is your favorite? Tell us why you love it!
Ahhh…so many I love. I’m going to go with the No-Bounce Camisole Sports Bra. I do a lot of high intensity workouts, like boxing, so I need a sports bra that gives me stability and support. This bra does wonders! It really gives no bounce!
Describe your idea of the perfect day.
Although I do love LA, my perfect day would be somewhere else. I love traveling, music and fashion. I would say my perfect day would combine all of these. My boyfriend would surprise me with a random trip, hopefully somewhere that has a beach. Then, we would end the night with a delicious dinner with wine before heading to live music or a concert. I’m doing all of this of course in a cute, bright outfit that is probably pink!
