Julie's Journey

Went looking for a bra today

I am in need of a new bra. I have lost about 12 inches since my surgery. I have been wearing a bra that I purchased after Kayleigh was born and I lost some weight. When I first purchsed it (after the sales girl told me "they feel tight at first....you'll get usd to it") I wore it once. Do ya know wht it feels like to be strangled by your own bra???? Cuz that's what was hapening to me ;)

Anyway, I had some running around to do downtown today, so I went to a bra/lingerie shop. The girl did a fitting on me. She was good. She never measured me, she just felt me in a couple places and came back with a bra. I put it on, and it fit quite well. It was an underwire, which I haven't worn in forever. I tried one, once, It was sooo uncomfortable to me.... poking into me in places you'd rather not be poked into. It was probably the wrong size.

I figured I was going to have to pay a bit more for a good, well fitting bra. I asked her how much this one is and she said (with a straigh face no less) $116.00. $116.00????? Dollars????????? Are ya sure that's not yen?????

She then proceeded to tell me they recommend you wash your bra after each wearing. For $116.00 someone should come to my home and wash it for me! She also told me they (whomever they are.... probably the same people who put $116.00 price tags on a bras) recommed you have 7 bras, and buy new ones every year and a half. Quite a little racket the have running there.

Needless to say I left braless (or should I saw new braless?) Otherwise I would just be downright scary ;)))

So... the bra hunt commences.....

LOL ~ my name is Julie and I went bra shopping today too! ;-) I first went to Vickie's Secret place where the nice girl measured, fitted, fixed the straps and had me all talked into the 42 dollar bra and I said to self WHAT ARE YOU DOING?? IT WON'T BE LONG AND THIS TOO WILL BE TOO BIG!! So off to JCP's I went and found two on the sale rack for about 15 bucks each! ;-)

Jules...you'd think they've loaded those bra cups in gold or something! What a crock! I'd go to Nordstroms and have them fit you. Then take their suggestions and go to Ross or JC Penny and purchase a cheaper one.

Good luck with that girl!
