I have spent $100 on a single bra before. I figure I wear one everyday, it may as well be the best made contraption every built. But now, I have found some brands that are far less expensive that seem to do really well. Okay, MM what's your take on bras?
1. How much are you willing to spend? I have spent as much as $100 per bra. Now, I spend around $50 per bra.
2. How frequently do you replace them? Every 8-12 months. I wash them in the machine and hang to dry, but they do lose effectiveness over time.
3. How frequently do you measure? Every time I buy.
4. How many do you own? 3 underwires - I have no idea if that's few or a lot - I really only use that many. I also have a few bras left over from breastfeeding that are night-time ones - no actual cups, they are like sleeping bras. I take them on trips when we're around other family members so I can be comfy in my pj's but still somewhat covered and supported "in public" in my in-laws' family room.
And just for fun, what's your goofiest, funniest, or most embarrassing bra moment? Once in a dressing room, I couldn't get the hooks undone from the back (the metal was too tight and the hook wouldn't separate from the loop). I ended up wriggling out of it. But there were a few seconds of panic, "Oh no! What do I do?"
P.S. JCPenney is having a big sale right now online that ends today! Some brands are buy one, get one for a penny.
P.P.S. Sorry to any guys here who don't wear them.
