Ladies Only

Seriously. I only know of one man who reads my blog (Hi, Dad) - but I'm telling you, for your own good, stop reading now. You will thank me later.

Ok...ladies - here's how to lose 10 pounds in less than an hour. Now, it will cost you (for me it was $60), but wow, is it ever worth it! Ready? Buy a new bra. Seriously. I look AMAZING!!! My boobs are no longer touching my stomach! And I surreptitiously keep copping a feel - dayum!

I knew that my old bra (bought during the Great Bra Shopping Excursion of April 2007*) was kinda stretched out and probably too big, seeing as how I have lost over.forty.pounds (have I mentioned that lately?!?), but yesterday when I was wearing my cute new red belted sweater from a recent Talbots shopping expedition, I realized that the girls were practically down to the belt. Now, I'm no expert, but something just wasn't right. Hence, the trip to Dillards today (sadly by myself, as my traditional bra shopping companion lives 1500 miles away). I am now the proud owner of a Wacoal bra (# 85814) in size 40DD (down from a 42DDD - am I the only woman in America who is happy to have a smaller bust?).

So go treat yourselves. I'll bet you will be happy you did!


*My best friend, Barbara, and I always shop for bras together. Which isn't easy since we haven't lived in the same state since 1992! But there is nothing like it - the laughter coming from our dressing room as we try on lingerie stays with me for months after. From the Spanx try-on (and try-to-get-off) of '99, to taking her then three-year-old daughter with us (who renamed bras "nipple covers" as they shall forever be known), it's more fun than should be legal. Hopefully by the time I'm ready for some new bras, er, nipple covers, we can do it together.

  1. Congrats on the new bra size both ways. It is beautiful. I know S and C would be pleased as they always push a proper fitting bra. I guess I need to go to the big city and get a new Wacoal as they do fit and feel good and it didn't take you all day to find it.

  2. I stumbled across your blog on jennsylvania.com. I just wanted to say you are so right. A new bra can make a world of difference. With the girls lifted up higher, I loose about ten pounds. Or it seems anyway. :) Also, no you aren't the only one who longs for smaller breasts. I am a 32 to 34 DD, which is impossible to find. Before I gained weight I was a 32B. I would love to be that size again. Yet, no matter how much weight I loose they stay the same size. Depressing. :)

  3. I agree! The women "out there" who get huge implants always amaze me...why would you do that??? Unfortunately, I'll never be small in the chest area, and since I'm too chicken to do a reduction, I'm stuck with whatever I can lose, weight-wise. But it's not much. Go good bras!

I love hearing from you and read each and every comment! Comments on older posts are moderated, so they won't show up right away - sorry to my real readers, but spammers love to hit old posts, so this is necessary.
