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.
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!
