Default What color bra are you wearing?

I hope this question doesn't offend anyone.

Yesterday, I logged in to Facebook and had gotten this message from one of my friends:

"Some fun is going on.... just write the color of your bra in your status. Just the color, nothing else. And send this on to ONLY girls, no men .... It will be neat to see if this will spread the wings of cancer awareness. It will be fun to see how long it takes before the men will wonder why all the girls have a color in their status.

Pass it on & be sure to do your breast self-exams! "

Certainly a worthwhile cause, so, I went to my profile and wrote the color bra I was wearing - Hot Pink

Most people (aside the ones that wrote "None") wore either Beige or Black.

How this pertains to weight is: I've been a 36D or 38D for most of my adult life - whenever I find a bra that fits nice, I buy it in all different colors. It makes me feel good and aside from my husband, and last night Facebook, no one usually knows or cares.

This morning when I logged on, I realized that of my friends younger or older, the friends that I have that are, or were, overweight at some point all were wearing something other than beige or black... is that just a coincidence?

So I'll ask the question - What color bra are you wearing today? AND because it is truly important... Be sure to do your breast self-exams!

I'll start - today is light blue..

I loved posting mine yesterdays as well. I said RED and my neice said she was shocked. Hey its hard to pass by a 60 dollar bra on clearance at lane bryant for 16. I love the way it fits and now love that its a pretty color and not just white black or beige.

LOL, of course today I am wearing beige (but it's a push-up!). My usual 'everyday' bra is pink lace, just for the record. It's so hard to find bras in my size (34DD) that I have to buy whatever color is available, and the selection is usually pretty sad.

Black. And sweat-stained. (At the moment, it's a sports bra, and I'm just back from the gym, logging in my exercise for today on the Exercise Accountability thread.)

Hot Pink!!!! As I'm going down in size I've been buying more 'fun' colors/prints. When I was at my high weight I had mostly beige, now that I'm losing I'm picking out more girly and fun stuff.

I was wondering why every had colors in their status posts! And now that I think of it, it was all women who posted colors. What a good idea to raise awareness (except for me, who didn't know what it was for--oh well, now I do!)

Black--boring! I feel like I should go change so as to appear more interesting.

I got this question of FB yesterday and of course it would come on a day when I was wearing one of my fancier ones. Here, I don't mind talking about it, but on FB where my family and friends can see was a bit awkward! Today, I have a boring beige.

It is an IPEX Full Coverage from VS and I am soooo sad that they have discontinued that line. It was the only bra that really fit me. I tried the new The One and some of the others, but they are designed for full-figured women. Next time I go in, I will have to start all over again. I am excited, though, because next time I will be slimmer and will have more choices!
