Pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea (or coffee), and let's chat shall we?
It's girl-talk time.
Today's topic: Bras.
I've long had problems finding the right fit, shape, size, durability, etc.
(I am not generously nor minimally endowed, tall, disproportionate, or otherwise challenging to fit.)
Today I'm fed up.
It all started when my $50 VS bra straps started shredding elastic strings.
Yes, I follow the care instructions.
Someone pulled one yesterday thinking they were removing a stray hair. The tell-tale zipping sound embarrassed us both.
No, friend. That's just my bra. Falling apart.
Just release the string and let's forget all about this.
If I spend $50 on an undergarment the thing better be near invincible.
Especially considering I've not even had this one for a year.
Am I too cheap?
Is it so much to ask that my daily delicates not disintegrate so soon?
I've bought cheaper (Target) and had worse and quicker developing problems (re: wire in ribcage) but this is ridiculous.
What's a girl to do?
Clearly I must be missing something.
My mother either failed me at some point or I lack something in the female genome that codes for undergarment wisdom.
Where do you buy bras?
Do you have problems like me?
Do you handwash yours (please say no)?
Is there any other place in the world to buy good bras or is VS the only one?
