There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
time to do a little surgery on my undergarments 
29th-Jun-2008 07:10 pm
too much information
I got frustrated this morning and took a pair of embroidery scissors to one of my bras. A few careful snips later, it's now underwire-free and ever so much more comfortable. I think I'm going to go remove the underwires from all my other bras.

Some people — mostly bra fitters — insist that an underwire in a bra is essential for any woman, even if she has small breasts. They make various arguments for this position, but I think that deep down it's a case of "I have to suffer with this damn wire digging into my ribs, and you should too."


Large-breasted women get to do cleavage and have to put up with the discomfort of underwires. Small-breasted women don't get to do cleavage, but we get to go without underwires if we want to.

And messenger bags. We get to wear messenger bags with cross-chest straps.

Hey, I believe in silver linings.

I have a pretty big bust, 42DDD, and I have managed to find one line of bras without wires that still give me cleavage. Such a relief after years of underwires!

I need an icon like that.

I have not, however, verified the truth of said trivia. Supposedly, in societies where women don't wear bras, breast cancer is virtually non-existant.
