Bra shopping was a complete success. Mrs. Forbes and I entered the store with our two strollers and watched business come to an immediate halt as the baby gushing began. I browsed the drawer for my size and pulled out five that seemed like likely candidates.
This bra was the only winner. I got it in blue, it’s so pretty. I had them go look for anything else that might also work, when they came back, it was me, Alex, and two shop girls in the small dressing room. (One shopgirl was training the other.) They tried me in a few other bras, including nursing bras. Nothing was as good as the one I’d found myself. So while it’s still not pregnancy size, it’s totally +5 on the Mommy’s Point System scale.
It’s always a surreal experience to have another woman put on my bra FOR me. I always do the fasten in front, shimmy around, pull straps up, hoist the girls in place method. They do the Put arms through, bend at the waist, shake into place, stand, fasten in back method. To top it off, she would come around and ADJUST MY BOOBIES into place. After childbirth, this was nothing, at least my pants were on.
Meanwhile, the Kaiser got pissed and the shopgirl in training picked him up and entertained him so I could actually get on with the bra shopping. Awesome.
The nursing bras were a huge bust (hardy har har). All was not lost, however. Shopgirl says, while holding new pretty bra:
“We can have this altered into a nursing bra for you for free.”
Did she just say free?
So, I did what any girl would do – I bought the pretty blue one intact, I bought the same bra in white to send off to be altered into a nursing bra. It should be here late next week. I totally can not wait!
YAY! I love a good bra. Luckily I am only a C cup ( I thank my lucky stars for this, Mum is an F/G cup) so I don’t have too much trouble finding good nursing bras.
I’m glad you found a good one and even happier that they mentioned the words “free” for you.
Boo-ya indeed! There is nothing like a good bra (except a FREE good bra)!!
Dawn, (from your other comment…)
There is some possibility, but the focus is really on Windows systems. There have been a few cross-platform java and other threats that could affect MAC or Linux users, but mostly just Windows. For the most part MAC users are fairly safe at the moment, but the measures to keep yourself that way are the same as what I suggest for Windows users. Since MAC is based somewhat on FressBSD (a unix variant) then I would say that it is already set up along these lines since Unix folks have been doing this for years.
Mac users are not exempt from attack though and safe net practices such as watching where you go and what you install still apply. Anything you install can and will be used against you. 🙂 Since plugins are largely cross platform too, some of the same vulnerabilities apply. Also, make sure you keep your system patched and your software packages patched. It might be a good idea once a week to go out and manually check for updates for those applications that do not do it automatically.
Cheers! Practice safe net!
Also, I hope this doesn’t come across as too strange but from a guy’s point of view, fitted bras are awesome and well worth the money I would spend to get one or several for my girlfriend (and eventually wife).
This must be one of those mysteries of the large-breasted. I never realized there was much of a technique to bra-putting-on – I just go arms in, pull down over the boobies, fasten in the back. We A-cuppers get away with a lot …
i think i’m thoroughly convinced that it would be worth it to make the 3 hour trip to atlanta to go to this place. and if it fails, i need to go ikea anyway.
Nursing bras. Bust. HAHAHAHAAHA!
Guh, as a G cup regularly, I fear the nursing bra issue.
OMG I love bra shopping. I say this all over blogs everywhere, a fancy expensive bra is SO WORTH IT. Makes you feel like a new one. And a blue one? Im jealous.
