GTT: Next to my skin

I was up until 3:30 am working on deadline last night, so this week's Girl Talk Thursday topic provides a nice, fluffy topic that requires minimal brainwork.

My underpants.

That's right. What's underneath my clothes and next to my skin. For those who see me every day or nearly every day, this won't come as a shock: I hate wearing a bra.

This was a-ok about three years ago when my modest C cups stayed where they belong. But a pregnancy, a fierce attempt at breast feeding, and a mumbledy-grumbledy-number weight gain later and I just may be obscene. The boobs still aren't large - they just don't really stay put and my headlights seem to always be on.

Luckily I don't have to leave the house much. When I do, I keep things in place with sweet and comfortable cotton bras. No underwire, thankyouverymuch, and nothing too structured. There's nothing worse than a bra digging into my (love)sides.

Underpants are my favorite item of clothing. If it were up to me, I'd wear nothing but them all day long (as I work from the couch). However, there's an 8 year old boy who suddenly became obsessed with boobs a few years back and a 35 year old man who is proud of him for it, so that doesn't happen. I prefer to wear mid-rise briefs.

I know, I know. They aren't as sexy as bikinis (which don't work for big girls) or boy shorts (which stay in all the wrong places) or thongs (just no). But they are so dang comfortable and that's what counts, right?

What's next to your skin?

    I'm with you, girl... working from home has quickly made me forget about the world of bras.

  • Chibi Jeebs

    I have a tired, stretched out sports bra that is my go-to when I get home from work (because you KNOW the first thing I shuck after my shoes is the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder).

  • colleen

    under-wires are a necessary evil sometimes but I'm all for the cotton wireless lovelies the majority of the time!!

  • Kelly Miller

    Okay, ladies. I went out and bought a new bra today - the wireless stretch lace bralette from VS. It's so comfy - I may sleep in it!
