Training Bras

Since Henry is totally weaned now I needed to get a new bra.  Yea!  There are certain times I need different sizes, usually one when I'm pregnant, one for nursing, and a smaller, not-pregnant, non-nursing one.  Anyway, that's probably too much info, but whatev...here's my story...

Last week I had a few minutes to wait while my car was being serviced at the Superstition Toyota dealership so I went over to the mall to check out Victoria Secret (the best bras ever and totally worth the money)!  The girl pulled out the drawer of like 15 different styles in my size and opened a room for me.

While I was trying to decide, and wondering how women deal with so much padding in some of them (I mean, seriously, have you seen "The Bombshell"?  It's big enough to be a pillow!), a heard a mother and daughter bring her daughter in to get a room.  While the daughter was trying some bras on the mother asked the Victoria Secret employee, "How much do these bras cost?"  The employee told her $48.  The mother then said rather loudly and surprised, "I aint buyin' her no forty-eight dollar bra!  She has a fifteen dollar one now that works just fine.  Don't you have any cheaper ones?"

I had a flash back to being a young girl going to try on bras with my mother.  My mom would never have done anything like that, but just going bra shopping was embarrassing enough for me already!  I felt so bad for the girl!  At that age, boobs are a big deal and I can just imagine the girl in the room cringing with embarrassment.

I was reminded that talking about price before taking your kids shopping (when they are old enough to understand cost, of course) is important to avoid situations like that.  When I have a daughter at an age when self esteem is so fragile, I hope to be more sensitive than that mother was.

Oh, and I did find a fabulous bra:) It was $48, but totally worth it!

For the record VS bras are TOTALLY worth the money. I wish I would've figured that out much sooner than I did. Love that place. Oh, and I think that buying a super nice bra for a teenager might help with the confidence and akwardness of it all.... make her feel special. I guess I'll find out in a few years and let you know how it goes.

That's where I go too... no where else compares. Poor girl.. hopefully she wasn't too mortified- although, I wouldn't blame her if she was!

Gotta love Victoria Secrets!! I agree...best bras EVER!! Too bad they don't make nursing ones...they don't do they?

That would be embarrassing for the poor girl. I admit, I have never spent that much on a bra myself, but then again, I really have no boobs, so I guess it doesn't matter all that much if I even wear a bra!

Bra shopping is way awkward when your that age, how embarrassing for that girl.

But I am a big fan of Victoria Secret, worth the $48 bucks! Plus if you sign up for the mailing they send you a free panties every two months or so, absolutely free plus the $10 off any bra. Amazing
