what is more depressing than shopping for a swimsuit?
shopping for a bra. that is what. went to gap today to try on this:
why was i trying this on?
because i need one for a wedding in florida which is being held outside on the beach and i thought a strapless dress with a little cardie would be kinda' cute.
i didn't buy one, however, because trying to put this beautiful strapless bra on a body that looks like the venus of willendorf just doesn't work. who may you ask is she?
well she is this stunning creature on the right and she is a great discovery that had archeologists swooning, but no one in their right mind really wants to look like that.
this reminds me of shopping for my first bra with mom, back when there was no such thing as a training bra. mom tried to get me to try on a large cup size back then and then add to what wasn't there. i mean that's what they did back then. lots of socks were not being used on feet back then.
seriously, why at almost 54 am i contemplating using socks to fill out a bra (sigh).
oh and to gap body...please please use more flattering light and a better mirror in your dressing room. the last thing i want to see is all the veins in my chest and very short stumpy legs...i mean...come on, i'm 5'8", my legs should not look stumpy in a mirror.
