Warning, this is about women stuff and I doubt if the many men could relate.
Several months ago, MissRose shared a bit about my bra problems in a story. I know that I have also told the blogging world about my weight, how I hate it, and it is causing major challenges. Thought I might share this funny challenge.
Let’s discuss bras-what? I am of the old school generation when nice girls didn’t discuss underwear in public, at least I usually don’t. The older I get, the more proper I’ve become, heavens I don’t even watch the Victoria Secret commercials. However, bras have been a topic of discussions at my house for several weeks now.
I've told about my problem with not being able to get bra on or to find the right size. I only wear a "king size" sport bra when I leave the house, and then when a jacket or sweaters on to make sure things are covered. A week or so ago I mentioned to Bruce something about this.
He replied, "I think we have enough money to buy you a new bra." Sunday morning I was upstairs on computer, he was downstairs watching TV. Later in the day he said, "I watched an infocommerical and found you a new bra. It's called the Ahh Bra. You put it over your head like a t-shirt. No hooks."
I burst out laughing...the thought of this old 75-year-old man watching a bra commercial. I teased him, asked if the Victoria Secret ads were too much for his heart. I did get Bing search to see what an Ahh Bra is, nothing more than a sports bra like the ones I have. However, I got on eBay, bought an arthritis bra to try out.
Fast forward to Monday with the package arrived with 2 new bras. I couldn’t wait to see if I really could fasten it with only 2 fingers. When I opened the package I thought, gee that looks very big. It is, by at least 4 inches. Silly me, I didn’t even think about measuring myself, kind of guessed based on sport bras I have. They fit OK, but are just tight enough to press on my spine and my “ouch area”. Therefore, I went up a size. What I hadn’t taken into account was sport bras really don’t have bra cups, regular bras do.
The old carpenter and tailor rule goes, “Measure twice, and cut once”. Next time I will measure. (I am putting the bras into the clothing to be donated to thrift store.)
