It’s true I’m fairly liberal and back in the day would’ve probably joined in the burning of bras. If I were honest, as much as I’m all about feminist ideals, I’m equally annoyed with wearing the damn things. I have the worst luck finding two things in this life: lipstick colors that don’t make me look like a painted lady (not that there’s anything wrong with that), and bras that don’t make me want to scratch my boobs off.
Lately, I’ve taken to wearing sports bras because I’ve been so fed up. And as comfy as they are, they don’t exactly cut a flattering figure under my girlie t-shirts. I have a great set of boobs, I’ll be the first to admit it. You have to have some favorite parts of yourself. It’s healthy.
So a few weeks ago Mary Alice Stephenson put a call out on Instagram for people who were using Glam 4 Good and if so, she would send them a Maidenform wirefree bra. Most of you know that I am all about showing women their beauty through photography, so I spoke up.
It came today. (!!!!) I was anxious for it to be awesome but hesitant to hope too much because bras hate me. Like, they have meetings conspiring against me. But it feels great! No wires cutting into me. The straps are long enough for my amazon torso. Makes a sexy shape under my t-shirt. The girls don’t fall out when I bend over; a huge annoyance usually.
I feel pretty…and comfy.
Isn’t that the point?
Thank you Mary Alice and Maidenform for the fabulous bra! I still believe nothing beats ripping off a bra at the end of the day, but when I do have to wear one, this just might be my new go-to.
