Being A Girl Is A Fucking Rip Off

$104.50
Let me repeat that for you.
$104.50
That's exactly how much I just spent on one new bra. Not many new bras, but ONE.
"Why?" I can hear you asking. Because Being a girl is a fucking rip off. And yes, I know I could go buy a cheaper one but there are problems with that idea too. The main one being the places that sell cheaper bras don't carry my size. (That's right, my boobs are that big. Yay me.) Then there's the fact that when buying a bra, you get what you pay for. So you pay less, you get a shitty bra. I have a bad back (like I said, big boobs) and a shitty bra does not help that problem.
So enjoy them while you can, boys, because if this kind of shit keeps up I'm going to have to chop them off.

That's the exact reason I have to buy £60 pants. That and the court order.

I guess it would make for a rather expensive night if one were to rip them off with their teeth then?

gwennie - I live three hours north of you... you know where. So we are on teh same health care plan. I had huge nasty boobs and a bad back. guess what our health care paid for - completely ?

That right. My breast reduction was totally covered. I took my doctors note of - bad back give her smaller boobs-to a plastic surgeons office and make an appointment to have them chopped off!

Best decision I ever made.

Pee ess: Wrong city and all, I know, but Dr. Carolyn Duval in S'toon is an awesome plastic surgeon...

Blue, believe me I've considered it. My absolute terror of all things hospital usually puts an end to those notions, but it's something I might look in to in the future.

I am totally with you. I just bought a bunch of bras. I went cheap because I had to replace 4 of them and now I am paying for it. Stupid big boobs.

We could start a club. A big boob club. We could call it "Club Bouncy Bouncy".

I claim the responsibility of checking minimum size is met.

Also, expensive, but worth it I'm sure.

I can vouch for the fabulousness of Blue's new boobs.

So what are we talking? F?

I feel your pain, I do. I have though found a pretty fucking awesome bra for I think under $30. It's on me right now so I'll let you know later when I can look. It's either Olga or something...

Gwenhwyfar said...

Fab - You are good. First guess.

Robin - Rockin'! I'll keep an eye out. Thanks.

We should start a support group for chicks with big boobs.

(Get it? "Support" group? HA!)

Ok, ok.
Sorry.
It's been a rough couple of weeks.

If I had a foghorn you'd be hearing it now.

It's TOTALLY worth the money to have a properly sized & fitted bra. It's also worth the extra bit of work to hand wash them and not let the machine mangle them or distress the fabric over time. It's also in your best interest not to wear the same bra daily as the fabric needs time to 'rest'. If the bra is well taken care of, it'll last you a long time. I learned all about this subject a couple years ago and it's saved me money and frustration. There is nothing better than comfortably secure boobs.
