i finally found it.

i was bra shopping at kohl's yesterday. i'd tried one HUNDREDS and i'm in between sizes. i'll spare you the details...

i was feeling rather deflated (in spirit not size) when i walked past a rack that touted the following:



knowing the advertising market's tendency to over exaggerate, i figured it was just a ploy, but since i was there and hadn't found a bra that even came close, i thought i'd try it out.

kelly and i went grocery shopping last night. i said, "I LOVE MY BRA" so often that he turned it into a song, veggietales fans will be familiar with it--from king george and the ducky...

i hope it's not too good to be true. but at least for now, I LOVE MY BRA! finally. and i didn't have to spend an arm and a leg on it, like my last one from victoria's secret. that's happiness. it's not sexy, but who needs sexy when it fits so dang well?

Congratulations. A good bra is, indeed, a joy.

But I have to ask: If someone had told you ten years ago that you'd be photographing your bra hangers and talking about bra fit for all the world to read, would you have believed them?

Hooray for bras that fit!! Good to know that they exist! :) Have a confession...been lurking and reading your blog for the past month or so and keep meaning to comment or email but keep getting distracted. Sorry! By all means, though, link me up...if I can link you up, too! :)

BTW, totally jealous about your fun adventures at CHA and your Slice stories! :)

Sweetheart finding the right bra that is the right fit is truly, truly a wonderful thing.

You know there's another Veggie song that would fit that phrase--instead of 'I Love My Lips' (Dave and the Giant Pickle), you could sing I love my bra. But then the phrase about "When I was just 2 years old I left my *lips* out in the cold and they turned blue..." might get kind of, um, inappropriate...

Can I get a "woot, woot"?? A bra that fits is a wondrous thing. :-) I don't know veggietales, but I was PIMP at etta. ;-)

Tut a good bra is something to treasure.

I'm so jealous about the bra. I can never find one I like. Now I'll be singing the bra song, ala king george and the ducky! ;)

Lisa Dickinson said...

ah, good to know. i, too, am throwing the in the towel on the VS bras...the support factor has to come before the cute factor at this point!

Davinie said...

I'm glad you love your bra, sweets. It's a major part of your day to have your girls in a comfortable chair. lol

I finally got around to my tagging, so check out my blog for my super interesting 7 things!

emily,you crack me up! can't say i've ever really felt that way about a bra...may have to make a trip over to kohl's. left you some love on my blog! hop on over if you have a second and take a peek!

ducky said...

your last post was "blah blah blah", you should have named this one "bra bra bra"!

and hey, another sign you have the perfect husband: he turns your bra utterances (udderances?) into a song. a good bra is hard to find, but a good husband even more. congrats on both.

we don't watch veggie tales--you'll have to sing a few bars (bras?) for me.
