Let's talk about Bras
That's right, it's time to break down the bra situation that had been pushed into the deepest, darkest, inner circles of my brain until yesterday, when I stepped into Victoria's Secret and my world turned upside down. I'm big into buying clothes, shoes, jewelry, really anything you put on your body that other people can see...and that's where it stopped. I couldn't care less about the state of my braness, if this fit was working out for me, have I had these underwear since college--it was a sad situation!
I decided I had to go bra shopping to find something to wear while trying on wedding dresses (!!!!) which led to spending close to 200 bucks on new bras.
#1 I never buy anything retail, EVER, unless it's food or alcohol related--I feel like a little piece of my soul floated out while swiping my red-hot credit card yesterday.
#2 I have a weird size, I'll spare you the details, but let's just say I'm a small person with not so small assets (much to my chagrin).
#3 The teenage girls, I mean VS employees, were ridiculously apathetic to my cause--I had to hunt them down every time I needed a fitting room.
Needless to say I had a bra fit party last night, trying on every bra I have currently and ended up ditching 10! bras, bad fit, too worn, ridiculously small, etc. I have turned the corner and now understand the importance of a good bra! (and underwear) I don't know how I've gone this long through life without paying any attention to this area?!
