Brevity is the soul of lingerie.
~ Dorothy Parker

You know, it's the little things in life that really make me happy.

Like my new bra.

This one, right here:


It's really everything I could ask for in an undergarment. Or in any relationship, for that matter.

It's comfortable. Very important. Critically important. Vitally important. Now, we're just getting to know each other, my bra and I. We're not to the "been washed and dislodged the underwire" stage in our relationship. But I have some fancy new contraptions in which to place my delicates so they don't get all abused in the washer. Which hopefully will take care of the Underwire Incidents. You don't want to know how many old bras I have with only one cup underwired. So sad.

It's versatile -- look at all the different ways I can configure it. Plus, it's got that plunge thing going on for those tops that show more than a little décollage. The Va-Va-Va-Voom shirts. You know what I'm talking about...

It's supportive. The girls are lifted and lovely. Really. Take my word for it. And there's a little bit of padding too -- I actually like that extra bit of shape.

I think that this might just be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

How sweet it is!

If only there were matching panties...

Brand please! Even (or perhaps, especially) in crisis, a gal needs great support.

Being a chunky-but-funky girl (at least for the moment -- thanks NutriSystem!), I picked it up from one of my fave CBF stores: Avenue

I love Dorothy Parker. Absolutely.

And the bra looks nifty!

Oh honey, aren't we all chunkier than we once were! But, like you, I hope I'm still pretty funky.
