Its amazing what a good bra can do...

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I feel like I lost 10 lbs and I have the best posture in my office...all thanks to some good, solid bra shopping. emoticon

I learned the benefits of a good bra last year. While still weighing 180 + lbs., I hosted about 25 women at a local boutique and we had a 'bra fitting' party. Sure, the bolder-holders were expensive, but we drank wine as the boutique closed for us and each got fitted in some jim-dandy new boobwear. 26 women walked into that store and only ONE left with the same size bra she walked in with. So I listened as the boutique owner helped get me strapped in and I learned a whole lot ~ even if I did spend $65 for ONE bra (gasp!!!) When all was said and done, I packed up the breast-cupcakes I had made to complement the cheese platter and wine provided by the boutique, gave every lady friend a 'how to do a self breast exam' and went on my merry way.

Obviously, the points stuck. As my chest began to shrink with the weight loss, I put off buying new bras. But alas, the time had come. I took my newfound knowledge to Walmart this weekend and after 11 attempts, finally found a bra that fit well!

My darlin's haven't been this happy in awhile plus I walk straighter and appear to have the bulleted vest of a 20 year old. Whoo-ha!!

While we are whipping our bodies into shape, lets not forget to take care of our mammaries, ladies. Treat yourself to a new bra that fits and watch your chest beam with pride!

    It's amazing isn't it...the right fitting bra. And sometimes you have to pay more for a good bra, but treat it right and it will last forever. I was told never wash it with normal detergent, even woolite. The best soap to use is Dreft and wash in a lingerie bag. I've been doing that religiously with my $75 a piece bras and they haven't changed a bit! Happy to hear those girls are happy! emoticon

    So true! Especially when you workout--don't forget about a GOOD sports bra so the girls don't bounce around too much!
