Victoria’s Secret is having their 7 for $26 sale on their panties. Of course I took advantage… and then they up-sold me on their bra’s, 2 for $42. The ONLY reason I purchased any bras is because my friend that is a male said… “You have one bra that you wear ALL. THE. TIME. You make enough money to have more than one bra.”
When you gotta point you have a point.
Since that last conversation I have picked up five new bras and countless panties (I just love underwear).
The problem with the bras is of the five of them four are bright loud colors. I figured that I would get pretty lingerie that compliments my skin complexion… but then I ran into the problem of what to wear to work (since the neon color pops through). Then I run into the problem of how many bras one should own.
Good thing I had Garance’s recent blog post to help me with my brazier quandary.
The following two questions registered with me the most…
How often should you be buying new bras? Bras always wear out but it’s the way you take care of them. If you hand wash and air dry them, they will always last much longer. Most women, I find, wear the same bra every single day. You have to rotate your bras. Don’t wear the same bra twice in a row– you sweat and the sides, back and straps stretch out.
What should you have in your bra wardrobe? Four to five bras for during the week, when you wear your work clothing, when you want your clothes to be smooth and fitting you well. You should have 3 or 4 sexy ones for when you want to go out at night or you are entertaining your man for seduction. Two strapless bras, one black and one nude (when you buy a strapless bra it should fit very, very snug, you can even go one size down sometimes).
I guess I need to pick up four more work appropriate bras.
I bring all this up because the last day to get the 7 for $26 is today (09/02)!
