Last night my husband and I went out to eat to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary five days late. (Yes, I got married on my birthday).
And he must have read the post I wrote about what women want for their birthday, because when we got home, there was a gift bag waiting for me on the bed.
I can count on one hand the number of times my husband has gotten me a gift for my birthday.
In fact, I can count on one finger the number of times my husband has gotten me a gift for my birthday.
So this was kind of a big deal for me.
I had no idea what was in the bag, and when I peeked inside, I was pleasantly surprised.
It was a really pretty, white, lacy bra and a matching pair of lacy white underpants.
I was pleasantly surprised by this for three reasons.
First, he got the right sizes.
Secondly, he had to spend some time in the lingerie department of a store.
And finally, the state of my undergarments is embarrassing.
I have three industrial sized bras.
They are all gray.
But when I got one, one was white, one was pink, and one was black.
My underpants situation isn’t any different.
I have not owned any nice undies since before I had kids.
And you know what?
It feels good to wear a pretty bra and some underpants that aren’t period underpants.
Because pretty much all of my underpants are now period underpants.
So my husband did really, really good.
Now I have a question for you all which is bordering on too much information.
There are two main reasons I don’t own any nice bras.
First, they are so expensive, and I haven’t had the money.
(My husband said to me last night, “I had no idea bras were so expensive! I though they were like $25!” — Welcome to our hell).
The other reason I have no nice bras is because I went from being a 34B when we got married to a 36DD.
And I cannot for the life of me find any bras that are both attractive (ie. they are pretty and they don’t smash my boobs into some inhuman cone shape) but also functional (ie. they actually hold my boobs in place) and comfortable (i.e. not digging trenches in my shoulders).
So now that I’ve realized it gives me a pick me up to not be wearing gray industrial strength bras and gray period underpants under my clothing, and now that I have enough money that I can actually purchase one or two more pretty matching sets of undergarments, I have a question for my well-endowed readers.
Where can I get a pretty bra that holds the girls up without putting me in major agony?
I need your help!
We (the girls, my husband and I) appreciate all the help we can get!
