My underclothing is trying to tell me something

Yep. Specifically, my bra is crying out to me. Apparently it feels that it is ready for retirement. It decided to strike this afternoon by hoisting a picket sign. A pointy little picket sign in the form of an underwire protruding from the center of the bra and working it's way up the center of my chest. Don't worry, I put an end to the strike before the picet sign was visible above the neckline of my sweater. (This time.)

This actually happened the weekend of my step-brother's wedding, when I was in the salon with my mother. All of the stylists were busy and I was waiting for my turn with the stylist that was currently doing my mother's makeup, and someone came to the salon door which had somehow ended up locked. So, helpful little chick that I am, I went over and opened the door for her. I came back over to the area containing Mom and the stylist, then felt an odd pokey sensation below my neck. I look down, and there's my stray underwire staring at me (taunting me!!)! I'm sure it must have been there when I opened the door for the stranger. (I mean really, how fast does wire travel?)

Mortifying! One would think I'd have thrown out this relic of a bra by now. But alas, I have not. I'm just not too smart, am I?

FYI - check out the Cooking Corner. I posted a new recipe! Will wonders never cease?

LOL Kristin! :) Annnnnnnnnyway, funny because the SAME thing happened to me this weekend in SF. Yeah, THAT undergarment went in the hotel garbage as fast as possible. Too bad too, because I loved that bra.

You know that I totally understand! My strapless underwire was stabbing me in the armpit. I had to throw it away, with my eyes closed 'cause I loved that bra.

I can't stand underwires even when they stay where they're supposed to.

Underwires are EVIL. I don't mean quasi-evil. Just plain EVIL. And unfortuantly they're a necessary evil for some of us.

I have a small scar on the side of my boob from an underwire inncodent. Not fun. And why do they always seem to break at the most unopportune moments?

I have fallen in love (and I kid you not) with the Fruit Of The Loom bras, very comfortable and price-friendly. Also there is an undergarment line called BArely There, and both panties and bras are a dream.

I will check out the cooking site...I am sure the recipe you're sharing is delish. I also replied to your post about Blaze. For some reason I don't always get notification that someone has replied. So I apologize for the delays in my replies.

Oooo. I too have suffered from the attack of the bra underwire. Not a pretty sight. But then that starts the whole panic of bra shopping. I should just do what Peg Bundy did and pick out a fave style and stock up.
