The Uncomfortable Bra


I’m prone to being a tad over dramatic, but I don’t think I’m being over the top when I say there is little worse than an uncomfortable bra. Last week my female-Italian-colleague was banging on about the size of my jugs to which I responded – “it’s all lies! The padded bra works wonders.” To prove my point the next day I wore an unpadded one, IT WAS HELL. I hadn’t broken it in properly and this was its first all-day outing. I now realise after looking on several websites that I should have done a few warm-up outings to the shops or worn it when cooking dinner – but in reality who has time for that?!

All I got for my troubles was my colleague saying that yes, she could see the difference and (imagine this said in an Italian accent) “they look much more sad.” So for the rest of the day she called me Sad Boobs. I also had a face to match due to the constant pain in my cleavage. I felt it my duty to tell almost every female friend at work that I was wearing a bad bra. I got of sympathy then stories of first bras, best places to buy them, just general tit chat. This took up most of my day as I couldn’t concentrate on my work for longer than half an hour without having to go to the toilet and either unhook it for a minute or hoick it up and down.  

The best part of my day was when I dashed home, yanked it off and refused to wear another one for the rest of the day. I wish I could channel my inner Charlie Dimmock and just go bra-free. If she can rock it on an outdoors show there must be hope for me in an office.

  1. Haha this made me laugh so much! I'm sure that after losing weight, my once head-sized boobs are now misshapen. Although I love the guarantee of no Rachel Green-style peanuts, I find it really uncomfortable wrestling my chest into pre-moulded cups. TMI? I think so...

  2. You are so funny. Bahahaha.

    Uncomfortable bras are the worst and it's hard to concentrate when you are getting poked and stuff.

    Glad you got that all figured out :) Happy Sunday!

  4. That sounds like an awful bra! I've never once had a non padded bra that caused me discomfort!
    The things we do to prove our point eh?

  5. This post has cheered me up no end! I do hate a rubbish bra. Have you ever had one on you at work? I unwisely went to work wearing a primark special and one of the straps pinged off mid-morning- it was hell!

  7. Oh my... I'll admit that I laughed, but I can feel your pain. The other day I was wearing a comfy bra, and its underwide decided to break. It was hell!
    *sigh*
    Happy new week!

  8. Bad bras are the worst! Yeuch! You should have had a bubble bath, a bad bra day deserves a bubble bath! And a G&T.

    I'm lucky and can get away with a sports bra at work, I would say I actually need one with the number of stray baby hands that try to take refuge in my cleavage.

  9. hhhaaah oh dear. Sad boobs. Padded bras are the best. I can't believe your one left you in so much pain though?! And I've never heard of breaking in a bra by cooking in it.. weird. I always go M&S for bras. I couldn't go bra free though, I'd look super sad. xx

  10. Oh no :( I don't think I've ever worn an unpadded bra, I don't like the shape.

  11. I love this post so much. You made me chuckle on a Monday fine lady; believe me, that is an impressive feat! I absolutely feel your pain, an uncomfortable bra is a sure fire way to ruin a day! It's so awkward when you can feel them bustling and moving around and being all wonky. I'm sure your breasts looked marvellous either way. Like you say, release your inner Charlie Dimmock.

    On another bra related note, isn't taking a bra off at the end of a long day just one of life's greatest pleasures?! Oh, I love it, I do, I do.

  12. This is hilarious.
    There's nothing worse than having sad looking boobs. Phaha, I too channel my inner Dimmock on the odd day (when I'm not leaving the house, of course... wouldn't want to grey the world with my depressed rack).

  14. Oh Becca, without meaning to sound like a lesbo I literally love you so much! Every time I read your posts I sit here cracking up at my laptop and you just make me smile so much!! There is nothing worse than a badly fitting bra though, I always struggle with finding ones that fit me well and find that once I've been wearing them for a few months (I don't mean in a row I do wash them :P) they go all baggy and lose their support :( I need to treat myself to a couple of new ones!
    Love Holly x

  15. hahahaha oh my gosh you're so amazing. I laughed so hard and totally related to this post. I hate wearing a bad bra, has happened many-o-times to me :( I actually had one that cut under my arms really badly because it had a rubber lining that poked over the top! OUCH!
