When I was young I remember my mother teaching me how to put on my first bra. She told me to put the bra on backwards, fasten the hooks in the front, turn the bra so the it faced right, then lean over and arms through straps and adjust as needed. I always thought the leaning over thing was so unnecessary, and it was...then. NOW as I have aged I learned why, but being so petite then, I just thought she was odd. Now I definitely need to lean over and coax the "ladies" into their proper positions even though they protest and continue to do so all day!
For one thing, I have never (at least not since "developing" some time in my 30's) had a well fitting bra. My bras have always left me tugging, adjusting, and uncomfortable. A man named Sigmund Lindauer from Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt, Germany developed a
brassiere for mass production in 1912 and patented it in 1913, but they say women in ancient Greece wore them as well in another version. I consider them torture devices.
When I was young and dainty (no comments about being small) I could fore go the bra and it didn't much matter. As I developed (after turning 30) I realized that they were becoming necessary. In the evenings, I was always eager to set the ladies free and sigh in relief. Now each night when I set them free and lay down, each runs to the opposite side of me! I think they have become greatly disenchanted with each other. And after I rise each morning and begin my day, daring to be bra-less for a little while, they both continue to sleep using the top of my tummy as their pillow. Not a sight to be shared!
Anyways, has any of you EVER had a perfectly comfortable, well-fitting bra?
My sister-in-law, far more blessed up front than I, has also suffered for many years, and, as many of you blessed (?) women have (you with teeny titties will not understand). She finally went to someone who makes bras for the individual and says it was the greatest event in her life! She says each costs $35-$40 but she feels it was the best spent money EVER!! As she told how amazingly comfortable her new bras are, how she no longer tugs and adjusts them, I began to imagine me skipping along in one fit just for me. I could never do it in the bras I have, and to be honest, at my age skipping is just a word and not an action.
I have sought to find someone who does make the magical bras for women but no luck. So, if anyone can suggest a good bra maker in or near Oregon City, PLEASE let me know!!
I would love to have one that feels comfortable, holds the ladies up in their proper positions, no longer has me tugging at them and makes me feel like I am bra-less!!!!
