Not bad for a fat girl

Bra Update


So a word to the wise, when you buy a bra spend a little time getting to know it. Walk around in it. Pick things up in it. Sit down in it. See how you like it.

Maybe, just maybe, it feels pretty good for the first thirty or so minutes, but after that, not so good. Maybe, just maybe, you should keep the tags ON your new purchase and plan to spend a weekend morning in said device before fully committing.

I’m just saying, three minutes in the fitting room is probably not enough time to make a decision that can affect your well being as much as wearing a bra that hurts. There, I said it, it hurts!

Why? Because I sat down. Yes, my crime was sitting. I’m fat, dammit, and when fat people sit stuff gets all squished around and in my case that means that the underwire got forced into my ribs. Ow, ow, ow.

So yes, the bra makes the boobs look pretty darn good for 50, but it’s going to hang out in my closet most of the time. Special occasions, though, look out. Who needs all those ribs, anyway?

I'm a middle aged woman doing the things that middle aged women do and trying not to beat myself up. I'm living the life I choose with the man I love, the grown up son who impresses me all the time, and the most adorable pup ever rescued from the euthanasia list. We live in the heat of the Southwest, where I regularly sweat through my Lane Bryant bras.

  1. Recently, after quite a number of years, I went back to Playtex. Haven’t done the underwire thing in decades! Wish I had been smart enough to leave the tags on a number of bras I bought over the years. The last time I purged the undies drawer I threw out at least a half-dozen barely worn mistakes. Stay comfy.

  2. I hate when I buy a bra that is just perfect when I put it on, and it even works then entire first time I wear it. But about a week or two later, it hurts. What’s up with that?

  3. I don’t know how many times that has happened to me as well. Would you mind sharing your story on my page? brarevolution.wordpress.com
    Also, anyone who sees this is welcome to come check out the page 😀

    • Hi Chelsea, I’m not sure how to share it on your page, but you’re certainly welcome to link to my page. Share and share alike, I say. And I’m totally with you on wanting more choices in terms of cute styles and patterns that actually FIT! Thanks for the read and the comment.

  4. Now you know how men feel with underpants. Though thankfully we don’t have metal wiring!
