View Full Version : 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 :o

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.

WHITE!! I only own a white and black/pink bra. I find it hard to find colors in my size that also fit real well. Hopefully in the near future I can pick out any style/color bra I want!! Now that is motiviation... haha

Great post.

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!

All of my bras are white, beige or black, I never found any cute reasonably priced bra's in my old(incorrect size) 42ddd. However I recently got fitted in a smaller(ish) bra from Nordstorms. It was ridiculously expensive but it fits and it's lacey pink and black and a 36G.

pale pink.

And I saw a few colors on my Facebook feed but didn't know what they were about, so I'm glad I do now!

I gave myself a couple of months off from self exams after the boob smashing, but good reminder that I need to start back up.

white. I also have light pink and gray, I keep my gray ones for exercise, no reason other than gray seems like a good exercise color, ha.

I have a black lacy one, but it's underwire, and I've gotten so I can't stand underwires.

Oh my gosh, I just realized something. A friends of mine on Facebook who is expecting a baby updates her status to "Pink!!!" Naturally, I assumed it meant she found out she was having a girl. So I was the first person to congratulate her followed by a bunch of people. LOL. Thanks for the post.

Rather boring today but black. I just posted this on fb not to long ago!

My grandmother died of breast cancer two years ago. My mom currently is battling breast cancer, it went undetected for two years, if this taught me anything is that no matter how old (or young) we are we should get checked!

beige. I used to buy cute ones all the time, but now that I'm losing weight I only buy 2 beige (they don't show under my white uniform shirts) in whatever size I am. I just don't have money to be spending on a bra that is gonna be too big in a month or two. When I hit goal, I'll start buying fun ones again.

Black!

but I just received a message in my FB inbox and there is another thing going around ok, so since the boys think they figured out the bra color status...here's the game. This will get the guys thinkin' (and see if they have dirty minds or not!) though its not at all rude, lol. this is about how u hav got ur hair now. if its up, write ON TOP, if its down and at either side of the face, write SIDE BY SIDE, if its just a complete mess, write EVERYWHERE N MESSY! see if they get this onine! but ONLY SEND to GIRLSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!! And hey, if you can get any more creative....GO FOR IT!!! AND LET'S KEEP THIS AMONG THE GIRLS THIS TIME AT LEAST LONGER THEN WE DID YESTERDAY...LOL "

I put tied down and messy!! Oh yeah lol

The one I had on yesterday during my fb status was hot pink, lace covered, cleavage-enhancing deep plunge. Brand-new, from the VS semi-annual sale. 36DD. :) Got a lot of comments, my favorite was 'whoa.'

Where the heck do you all find these fancy colored bras?! My size (44 nearly-B) only seems to come in black, white, and beige. Yawn. I would need several pairs of rolled up tube socks to be able to sport a Lane Bryant bra, for some reason their cup sizes are ginormous on me and my band size rules out VS...

My favorite bra is leapord print, from Wal-mart, underwire! Love that thing.
I do not own a white bra, "boring"

I have the leapord, pink, blue, black and a pink and black. I'd have more colors but 38DD is hard to find, to fit my pickyness.

And so it continues... I'll ask another question, how often do you get remeasured while you're losing weight? I'm fairly certain that my old bras are getting too big, but not sure if I need a smaller size?

01-09-2010, 04:19 PM
on the topic of bras... Ladies (especially my large busted ladies) keep your eyes peeled for Lane Bryant locations going out of business. We have 3 stores closing in Atlanta right now, and I got FOUR bras for $30 today! (and yeah, they're sexy ones- 2 red, a purple and a blue)

Orange and kind of a tealy blue. Two sports bras and the girls are still bouncing around. And good tip on Lane Bryant. Unfortunately they don't have harldy any in my size. Hopefully I'll go down a cup or two so I can find fun, pretty bras. Most of the ones in my size are big ugly ones.
