Girls With Boobs & Priorities

I know you guys were all concerned the other day when I told about my brutal search for a new bra. Lucky for me, I had to pass by a mall which also contained a Victoria Secret while on my trip last week. This seems insignificant, but the nearest store to me is about an hour and a half. If I KNEW what I wanted to buy, I could always turn to mail order, but obviously had to start with getting a good fitting bra.

So, since I was in my old stomping ground, good friend and fellow boob slinger wearer Kristy offered to hang with me at Vickys.

It was a magical moment. Taylor the lady who was working on my return had a huge laugh at my story about the five trillion bras laid out all over the floor of the fitting room. She cocked her head sideways, took a good peep at ye old boobies and said, well, I can promise you I know what size you are.

She had boobs! And added plus, knew how to measure. I am pretty sure she was a BOOB FAIRY sent to help me in my time of need.

I am a proud owner of a new bra WITH sparkles and flowers AND didn't even try it on. Women with boobs know how important happy boobs are to an overall good outlook on life.

And the second benefit to having a friend accompany you...instead of a dude...she talks you into something you may have overlooked, which is a pretty bra. Not used to having one of those!

Interestingly enough, I was almost willing to forgo the evil of the bra store and instead hit a craft store where I knew I'd find things I loved...

There was really only time for one store and a hot cup of tea with Kristy to catch up....

I did content myself with a five second dash into Joanne's late Friday night on my way home and manged to find a few things in five minutes.

Can't wait to use them!

Oh and Happy Hump Day. Somehow saying that seems slightly wrong on this post....


  1. Got a boob story to share back. My mum had her 1st fitting EVER last week ....into the Room she disappeared...then popped out & said 'You coming?' Uggghhh! I've lived without seeing my mothers breasts for 73 years. Don't really want to change that now. I graciously declined. Well....actually, I rolled my eyes at the Boob Fitter & said the above. I had a BALL in the department store. Bought a pile of stuff. Y'see, it took over TWO hours & mum emerged 2 cup sizes & one dress size larger. Amazing what can in those rooms:):):)!!!!!
    Glad you got a pretty bra...does something for the ego:):):)

  2. Hummm I think every girl can relate to this story.. I just love a good western bra... they gather 'em up and herd 'em out!!

  4. I remember going to a proper bra shop for the first time and buying the first bra that really fitted properly. But you see I had the opposite problem back then - hardly any boobs at all! Now I am older, have had a baby and put on weight and I have a choice - get a flat tummy or keep the new boobs. I've settled for the latter!

  5. So happy to hear you are now the proud owner of at least one pretty bra! Mine are not the prettiest but I did find a mauve one the other day which I thought was pretty adventurous! Was wondering why you'd gone so quiet - you were away! I can't tell you how much I would LOVE to dash into a store and come out with that haul in 5 minutes! Having to wait 3 weeks is a killer!!

  6. Loving your bra chronicles, Mitra! GREAT Quote, Lizzy :)

  7. A good-fitting Bra is a Godsend!

  8. A girlfriend of mine made reservations at a local bar for my bachelorette party and when we arrived, I was front and center. A very bubbly waitress greeted us and said, "Are you here for the Hooters party?"
    No joke, she looked right at me, took one glance at my chest and said, "My mistake, I'm sorry...."
    Thank God my friend thinks fast on her feet and restrained me while saying,"No, I've made reservations for the tweeter party."
    So happy you found a boobie guru though! :)

  9. Every girl needs to know how pretty her bra is, even if no one else in the room does. ;)
