I successfully bought bras and underpants yesterday! With my child in tow, so that’s extra amazing in my book.
I’m very basic when it comes to these items and I hate clothes shopping in general. I have worn cotton underwear by one brand for as long as I remember. The last pack of them I bought were so low quality that they wore out within a few months. I am still wearing ones I bought before I became a mom 6 years ago, because they have outlasted them! I stuck with the same brand this time, but these look way better quality. I let Wallace choose the color/pattern combo as it doesn’t matter much to me. I have been contemplating learning to sew our own underwear, but don’t know how to find the right fabric.
As for bras, we’ve always had a love-hate relationship. I’m really small around, but used to be quite large for my frame. Finding bras that fit was an annual struggle I tried to avoid, doubly so since becoming a parent. Since birthing and breastfeeding, I haven’t been able to tolerate structured bras, even without underwires. I wore my stretchy nursing bras for months after weaning and switched to some old sports bras when I realized it. I bought a set of cheap cotton sports bras over a year ago, which took some getting used to. They have worked but have the razor back style so show at the neck of most of my shirts. Yesterday, I found similar ones that aren’t razor back. Problem is, I’m so short that the straps are too long and I will need to sew them. Maybe one day I will attempt to make bras, too. It would be much easier than having to modify what I buy.
I’ve had a migraine since yesterday morning, but wanted to ramble and write. Next post will be birthday extravaganza!
