Seriously. I only know of one man who reads my blog (Hi, Dad) - but I'm telling you, for your own good, stop reading now. You will thank me later. . . . . . Ok...ladies - here's how to lose 10 pounds in less than an hour. Now, it will cost you (for me it was $60), but wow, is it ever worth it! Ready? Buy a new bra. Seriously. I look AMAZING!!! My boobs are no longer touching my stomach! And I surreptitiously keep copping a feel - dayum!
I knew that my old bra (bought during the Great Bra Shopping Excursion of April 2007*) was kinda stretched out and probably too big, seeing as how I have lost over.forty.pounds (have I mentioned that lately?!?), but yesterday when I was wearing my cute new red belted sweater from a recent Talbots shopping expedition, I realized that the girls were practically down to the belt. Now, I'm no expert, but something just wasn't right. Hence, the trip to Dillards today (sadly by myself, as my traditional bra shopping companion lives 1500 miles away). I am now the proud owner of a Wacoal bra (# 85814 ) in size 40DD (down from a 42DDD - am I the only woman in America who is happy to have a smaller bust?).
So go treat yourselves. I'll bet you will be happy you did!
*My best friend, Barbara, and I always shop for bras together. Which isn't easy since we haven't lived in the same state since 1992! But there is nothing like it - the laughter coming from our dressing room as we try on lingerie stays with me for months after. From the Spanx try-on (and try-to-get-off) of '99, to taking her then three-year-old daughter with us (who renamed bras "nipple covers" as they shall forever be known), it's more fun than should be legal. Hopefully by the time I'm ready for some new bras, er, nipple covers, we can do it together.
