The Bra turns 101

I happened upon this today

a little history about our most s.exiest fashion accessory and inseparable companion.

your turn
what is your favourite bra ? ... don't be shy - men can answer too.

-well at the moment ... mine are ugly maternity bras but that's okay ... I am not ready to wean.

By gee, I tell you, some of my bras look like they are 101 as well!!!!

My favorite bra is a Target, beige TShirt bra. It is the only bra I voluntarily wear and I hate it when it has to be washed!

I also have one of those U Bras for low cut dresses. They are uncomfortable but I like what they do to those things that used to be there and used to have a cleavage!! I never go out so don't actually get to wear the bra in public - I just put it on every now and then to remind myself that I am woman.

The only reason I ever wear a bra nowadays is to make it look like I've got something. No bra and I find my bosoms flapping around my waist like streaky pieces of bacon. Without a bra at least I can pick up one bosom and throw it over my shoulder like a privileged cape of older womanhood.

I'm all for banning the bra (except for Sheila of the Sisterhood of the traveling bra - she's a cool bra). I cannot believe the amount of money some people pay for them - torture chambers that they are.

Wacoal Bras. Luxury at its finest -- in the most important place.
I do not like Victoria Secret Bras -- they don't seem to be made that well, and the wires eventually poke through.

Wacoal is the way to go....

Megan - you are brilliant and hilarious (in the nicest possible way) I was going to link to you wearing Sheila but had to ask you first ?
My bras are stained by grubby fingers every day and I rarely have the cups attached ...heehee easy access for the guzzlers.

Susie - very nice ... I have never liked under-wire bras because they poke and dig in.

I have no favourite bra. They are all ugly boulder holders! Nothing sexy about them. THey are purely functional, in that they hold them up above my navel.

Wow, I had no idea they were that old. Women have been suffering for many ages.

I like a comfortable one. But have such a hard time finding one. Grrr!

Any one that fits my double-d's without making me feel like a Grandma. Why are there no pretty lacey bras for "blessed" women?

haha! :P

Your boys are so cute! My son is about their age...he was born July 15, 2006.

Well, it might be weird, but mine is the nursing bra as well! Right now I am still nursing, but I continued wearing one in the time in between my two children because every other bra I have found ends up doing that whole thing where the wire pops out and pokes you in the side after three days! I hate that! Ouch!

Laura said...

I still have my nursing bras...can't bear to part with them, though my baby is 4 years old, and quit nursing 1 1/2 years ago... My fav right now is a Walmart find...bought up as many as I could find, 'cause you never know if they'll still be there when you go back for more!!

I´m in the ugly maternity bras still too, although they are at least more comfortable than underwires - I don´t miss them at all. They are definitely very unattractive over the shoulder boulder holders though.

Jenn said...

Ugh, my current bras are not-so-sexy nursing bras. But, it'll have to do for awhile, and even though they aren't very attractive, they sure are comfy!
