I love wearing frilly bras that make me feel pretty, but with so much extra weight it is nearly impossible to find them. In the last few months I’ve lost enough to wear bras like this:
And this one:
And while these bras are cute, they just don’t offer the kind of unwavering support I need as a plus-size girl. So my wonderful, amazing, lovely friend Charlene called me this weekend (from the store where she found the cardigans I wanted — in my size, on sale!) I headed over immediately, of course, and in addition to the cardigans, I also picked up a fantastic dress.
Charlene told me, as only a good girlfriend could, that I needed to try a different bra with the dress. So she showed me what she thought I needed, and I’m thinking “no way…this is so not going to work.”
But I was wrong. Not only did it work, but it made me feel instantly pretty! Needless to say, I bought the bra in multiple colors. And while it’s a little boring looking, I feel prettier…I stand taller…Thanks to my uber-awesome friend, Charlene, I feel more confident walking down the street. 🙂 Isn’t she the best?!
