Requiem For A Bra

No matter what you call it, finding a good, comfortable, sexy bra can be like finding the Holy Grail. It seems like lingerie designers seem to think that if you are larger than a D cup, your size is enough and you don’t need or want something that looks good. Function over fashion, right?
When you do find one that you like that does not look like it uses 3 yards of fabric, it is twice the price our smaller cup size sisters pay. Then, the retailer, usually Victoria Secret, will discontinue your new found bra. There are times when it is like the episode of Married… With Children when they discontinue Peggy’s bra and she is in a panic trying to find one she likes before the old one breaks.
Every time you wash your well fitting, sexy bra you feel like you should sacrifice something to the gods of elastic and underwires before putting it in the machine to ensure the garment survives the ordeal.
Because of the expense and difficulty finding one, most of us only have 2 good bras that fit well and also look good. You know the kind of bra I’m talking about. It just looks killer on you and provides the support you need when you have a larger chest. And if the bra breaks… Heartbreak.
While doing my laundry for work today, I found that, somehow, both underwires of my good bra were snapped!
I have one more good bra that fits well, but this loss hurts, not sure when I will be able to replace this bra. It is like losing a dear friend.
