Because you want to know, and because I am all too happy to tell you: You know I have a special love and appreciation for bras (and panties), and I also just love blogging about it. I have told you before about how I dump my bra when I come home, but now I’m going to share where my bra goes in a day. Why? Because of women who do.
Vanity Fair® has launched a campaign called Women Who Do: for women who Dream, Inspire, Encourage, and Persevere. For me, there are so many women who inspire me for so many reasons. They do all these things, and much more. At the top of my head, I’m thinking about my mommy.
My mommy is no spring chicken, but she has not stopped dreaming, and I am always amazed by all the things my mommy still wants to do. She inspires me to keep dreaming and to keep trying. In spite of the curve balls that life has thrown her way, she continues to amaze me with her will and perseverance. If I can be half the woman that she is today, I will be all too proud of myself. But I don’t think my mommy even knows how much she inspires me. I don’t have the words to tell her, and if I did, she wouldn’t believe me anyway.
Vanity Fair® is using this campaign to encourage women like you, me, and my mommy, and I am loving every bit of it. Usually, people would blog about a day in their life, but I want to blog about a day in the life of my bra. It starts in the morning after I take a shower and get dressed. I work from home now, so most times these days, I don’t have to go anywhere, and so I remain braless on those days (with my t-shirt and underwear), but on the days that I do have meetings, the right bra makes all the difference. I have had ill-fitting bras, so trust me, I know.
When I leave the house, I go for whatever meetings I have. I usually try to fit as many meetings as I can in one day, so that I don’t end up driving everyday. After my three, maybe four meetings, the workday is usually over, so I run whatever errand I need to. Then I make it back home. As soon as I walk in, I take my bra off and throw it wherever. At any given time in my house, I have a bra in odd places: on the couch, on the dining table, in the kitchen, on the deep freezer in the kitchen, etc. There are days I dress up and I have to go through the house looking for a particular bra until I find it.
This is pretty much the life of my bras. If they could talk, they’d confirm my story. If you have never had a bra fitting, you may be wearing the wrong bra. Vanity Fair® is currently doing a LiftTOUR in JCPenney, Kohl’s, and Sears across the country to give bra fittings and better, better, better fitting bras. For every single bra fitting that Vanity Fair® does, a brand new bra will be donated to Dress For Success, for even more women who do.
