I can’t remember how long I’ve been wearing a bra, but it’s been well over 45 years.
Just recently, after all this time, I finally got properly fitted for a bra.
Talk about a truly “uplifting” experience – this was it!
At least, the end result was uplifting.
“Bra Lady” – the fitter – and I, the fittee, worked well together. She said lean over and I leaned. She said wiggle, and I wiggled. She said “Put those inside the cups” and I did just that. I learned how many fingers should fit under the strap, under the back – and more.
After several tries, we found three bras that were just right for me.
The next shock was when it was time to pay. Have you priced bras lately? It had been a long time since I had been bra-shopping. Maybe a lot of engineering expertise goes into creating these things.
Bra Lady told me that a woman shouldn’t wear a bra any longer than six months (no, that’s not at one time!) Six months? It takes me that long to break one in! It takes that long for the bra and me to get used to each other.
All in all, the fitting was a positive experience: my boobs are no longer caught in my waistband!
