I hate buying bras!

I used to not mind it. I would head to the store and buy what was cheap. I used to love a style of JMS bras and for years bought that style whenever I needed a bra. I could often find them on sale for less than $10. They were comfy, supportive and lasted pretty well.

Then my boobs grew. And that style did not come in big enough sizes. So I tried many bras and just didn't find any that were comfy, so just took what I could find that fit well and were supportive.

Then I discovered Glamorize bras. They are comfy and supportive, but more than I was used to paying for bras. I know, I know a lot of people are happy to pay $38 for a bra and some pay a lot more. But it was hard for me, since I am cheap. LOL! But they are comfy and supportive and hold up really, really well. I usually buy a couple a year and they last a couple of years. So, I have 4 in rotation.

I know, I know, a lot of people have a bra for every day of the week, but I don't.

I always watch for good sales and today got lucky. I got an email from, where I buy mine from. And today only, they had $15 off a $60 order. AND they have B2G1 free for ANY bra.

So, I hopped on that deal and got 3 $38 bras for $66 and free shipping!! WooHoo! Today, I did not hate buying bras. regularly has sales, so I am on the mailing list. It pays to sign up for the mailing list of your favorite stores!

See we all love your boobs! I buy my bras from Victoria secrets and they are not cheap in my size. And I think they are shrinking their cups so I'm going to have to start to look for something bigger. Grrrr!

Donna said...

I hate buying bras, too. And like SonyaAnn I have switched to Victoria's Secret -- not cheap, but they last a long time.
It's just annoying to have to spend so much for so little. I'm referring to the garment, not to my bosom. (Although, come to think of it...)

Hi, SonyaAnn and Donna! I think I would really love to have smaller boobs, but for now the Glamorize bras support them nicely. I have never bought bras at Victoria Secret. I always thought they would be too expensive. LOL!

Good for you!!! I hate buying bras too. And coincidentally... my absolute favorite bra is a maternity bra... I bought it by accident and my husband noticed that it has flaps... hmmm! handy.

Frances said...

Hi, McVal! I never thought about it, but flaps WOULD be handy. LOL!

McVal and Frances--Don't be naughty!lol
I love me some JMS bras too. But I usually get the Playtex 18 hours and I wait for the semi-annual half price sale...yay
I hate buying em anyway because I hate parting with the ca$h!lol

I'm sure your readers don't have MY problem (very small in that area! Been that way my entire mom and my sister must have stole all the boob genes! lol). Even shopping for the undergarments for my wedding was horrible. I went with my sister (double D) and the stuff she tried on, hers were overflowing, and the ones I tried made me FLATTER!

I found Fredericks of Hollywood and it made a big difference...gave me some 'boob' And I'd buy the style when it went on sale (prints, weird colors, etc). Then I found Victoria's Secret Miraculous bra, which adds 2 cup sizes....HELLO! They are like $50! Which is a LOT so I signed up for the Angel Card to get coupons. Now, when I get a coupon, I go buy a new one so my rotation is adding up...but they are costly :(
