Ladies only, I'm afraid. I'm fairly
certain this won't have the same effect on the blokes!
Get yourself properly measured and buy a new bra
I finally braced myself to go and get correctly fitted for one, and what an incredible difference! I swear it's taken at least 10 pounds off me!
Can you tell I'm pleased?
It's really highlighted that I have a waist!
I'm not exaggerating when I say it was mentally traumatic for me
and it's taken me a good hour to recover now I'm home again, but the lady in the shop was fantastic. She put me at ease and didn't seem to mind my freaky behaviour so I just lobbed out my girls and she measured and fitted me!
I've known for a long time that I was wearing completely the wrong sized bra, but there was no way I was going to allow anyone close enough to sort me out properly.
It was easier to grab one from the department store.
I promised myself that when I reached my first mini goal, I would make myself go and now I have! I'm so proud of myself--no false modesty for me!
And get this: the bra chose me rather than the other way around. I tried half a dozen and this one is just the bees knees. It's so pretty yet it has fantastic support; I ran
up and down stairs five times and nothing budged! I can barely feel I'm wearing it.
This is just the best reward I could've given myself (well, hubby bought it for me really,
the darling) for shifting some pounds. I'm really on a high.
Some people baulk at the idea of spending $100 (CDN) on a good bra, but doing that has made my $9.99 shirt look like it cost ten times what it did. I've gone from bag lady to smart/casual with just a change of underwear.
I only bought one (and I immediately chucked all my old ones out) so I'll have to wash it out each night, but given that I intend to shrink a lot more, it would have been a waste of money to buy another. Apart from anything else, how would I have justified it to hubby?
I can honestly say I'll never go back to an ill-fitting bra again.
Please forgive me for going on so long.
I'm just so excited. I want to strut about in front of the mirror admiring my new shape!
