If you're like me, and your not--ahem--particularly blessed, you probably have never given a thought to how your bra fit. Ten minutes in Target and you're set until the elastic gives out in two years.
If you are blessed, you probably have spent a little more time getting the fit right. But how much time?
Who cares? Why bother?
Ladies--it's time to get real about the girls. I know, in these difficult economic times, bras are not a top priority, but as time advances, the right bra, and the right fit becomes even more critical. Even ladies like me have to think about "the girls" and their garment.
So what am I saying? Sometime in the next couple of months, get yourself professionally fitted. Department stores sometimes have "Fitting Events" (which sounds like a group activity, but isn't...). Make an appointment and go. Or find a specialty store in your area and visit it.
Throw caution to the wind, let a perfect stranger -- a well-trained one -- examine every aspect of the way your girls snuggle into the foundation garment. I guarantee you, you'll walk out wearing something that makes you look younger, less or more well-endowed (depending on your area of concern), and more comfortable than you ever thought possible.
Yes, it will cost you. But think about this, virtually everything else you put on hangs on or wraps around that bra. If it doesn't fit well, how good is that sweater, blouse or t-shirt going to look? See where I'm heading with this?
Trust me, it's worth your time. And worth your money. Here's how to justify the expense (a good bra may run you $60). If you're buying clothes at Target, thrift shops or Marshall's to save money, shouldn't they be shown off to their best advantage?
Where to start? Well, here are a couple of places to look:
Whadday think? Am I crazy to spend money for this kind of stuff? Or am I the last woman on the "get yourself fitted bandwagon?"
Ah, yes, and today's three things I'm grateful for:
I'm grateful it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
I'm thankful my children still want to be seen with me in public.
I'm grateful my dogs have both learned to catch a Frisbeetm on the fly, without the benefit of any instruction from me.
