The Weekend of Freedom
So, right then and there, I decided that this would be a bra-free weekend. I posted it on Facebook that this was my plan. People warned me of the saggy baggies. People agreed. People quoted songs to me. All in all, my declaration illicted quite the response. This is obviously an issue on which people feel strongly. I know I'm in this alone, but I do feel support (sorry for the pun) on my trek.
For over thirty years, I've been wearing the darn things. I've worn all sizes and shapes. I've paid good money for em and I've bought the bargain variety. I've worn snap in front, snap in back, strapless (EGADS), racerback and convertible. I've worn push up, padded, tshirt, lacy, underwire, no wire, sports and nursing. If you add it all up, I've probably worn close to 500 bras in my life. And, how many of those were comfortable? Maybe 10. Maybe. Percentage wise, that's about 2%.
I'm just tired of being uncomfortable. And, I'm taking a stand. Please don't tell me to go get fitted by a specialist. I've seen them do this. It aint happening. If I'm getting felt up, it's not gonna be by the lady in the lingerie department at Dillards.
So, I'm about four hours into my bra-free weekend, and so far, so good. I'm hanging free, and loving it. I feel relaxed, happy and joyful. Now, don't panic on me, I'll be back to my old ways of bra-wearing on Monday, but for the next 72 hours, the girls are FREE. Join me, will you??
