A Great Bra Fit

So, like a lot of other people, I like to watch "What Not To Wear" and from time to time I learn something and I change that about how I do my hair, makeup or clothes. Well, the newest thing I finally did was get a really good fitting bra for me.

I have always bought nice bras from Victoria's Secret or Frederick's of Hollywood, but this time I was looking for something to hold these D's up in place and not have the strap cutting into my shoulder.

And what I learned was to look for thicker straps for the larger breasted woman. So, I finally did that. I looked around a few place, including my favorites, and nothing was jumping out as what I wanted. Then I went to and I was even able to put "comfort straps" into my search criteria. It was nice. They have good prices. Right now all their Playtex bras are $13.99, which is basically half price. I thought I would start with two different ones and try them out. I never wore Playtex before.

Well, they are wonderful. They fit so comfotably. There is no cutting in on my shoulders and the deflated, now slightly lower, empty size D's are held up into place. I am very happy with my purchase.

I also bought a 2-pack of Hanes Body Creations micorfiber panties. They are the kind that have no VPL. I haven't worn then yet, so I can't attest to is they live up to their claims. But I do like that I get 2 pairs for less than I bought one pair at VS.

I did the same thing about a year ago. I love my new bras. I can always tell the difference when I go back to wearing one of the other ones that are too small. Also, there is no spillage in the front! I also stopped putting my bras into the dryer but hanging them dry. I bought some higher end panties and then some cheap ones and I love them both. I love Stacy and Clinton. So funny. I would die if I got picked for that show.

Why didn't you just go to the department store where they have thousands? They have all the Platex in the world.

Because when you have a 16 month old that likes to tear everything off racks &'s just not fun....and if you try top stop her, you risk having a huge screaming, best just to avoid the situation altogether.
