And the hard cold facts, they are not sexy. I don’t care how much lace you throw on a white bra, it still has the connotations of a first bra, or even worse, the bra of an old woman who doesn’t care anymore. Not the bra of a sexy vibrant woman who loves herself enough to wear polka-dots under her black
sweater just cause it makes her smile. Now I will admit I was among the white bra masses until I turned about 35, and my husband asked me why I always bought white bras. I stopped and thought about it and wondered, why did I? It was utilitarian. It was what I was taught. I didn’t put any thought into my bra shopping, other than let’s get this
over with. Don’t get me wrong, I had my lingerie drawer, and none of it was white. Why was the one thing I had to wear everyday white?
politely mention here, used to always say the girls belonged half way between your elbow and your shoulder, any lower and it was time for a new bra. I know you are shaking your head right now, screaming NOOOOO!!! But the truth hurts. When it is harder to stay in the bra than put it on, it’s time. You know what I am talking about.
One more thing, for goodness sake, if you are bigger than a B cup, YOU NEED UNDERWIRE. Those puppies are heavy. No groaning. Give your back a break. Not all of them are uncomfortable. There are literally millions to choose from. And that A-HA moment when you look in the mirror and the girls look great and feel great at the same time is soooooo worth the 2 hours it took to find that one bra. You can get fitted as a starting point, but don’t live by their rules. Try them on until one fits like it was molded for your girls. They are out there I promise. And in my experience it's rarely the one the store clerk points out.
A parting thought. Yes you can go out there and spend $15 dollars at the store where you can buy camping gear, milk and dogtreats. But it will not
last longer than a month. Remember the elbow rule? Spend the $35 bucks for a good bra. In the long run you will save money, because it won’t have to be
replaced every few weeks. If your kid needed shoes you would not blink at $35 bucks.
Next time you go bra shopping, look for something fun. After all ladies, the girls are gonna be with you your whole life, God willing. And deserve a little SHABAM. Remember my motto, sexy is as sexy does. It's okay to feel sexy in your everyday bra.
