Is that a vast overstatement? I don't think so.
To my (small) (non-existent) male audience: Please look away. Or so you've been warned.
Ok, now that it's just the ladies, I have a confession to make: I've been wearing nursing bras since I had Kendall. I haven't nursed anyone in a year and a half.
WOW. That was embarrassing. But I feel better now that everyone knows the truth. I was wearing old, tattered nursing bras.
Back in February I decided to get some new bras so I was fitted and when I found out what size I was wearing, I laughed and was like, "That can't be right! I'm not that fat!" Oh, wait. So I didn't buy any new bras. But then I lost 15 pounds and decided to finally bite the bullet and buy some undergarments that didn't look like a dog had gnawed on it, drug it through the yard and finally put it through a tree shredder. And then tried to wear it. And then realized that dogs don't wear bras but if they did, this dog CERTAINLY wouldn't be wearing a bra that looked like this. (I just really wanted you to have a visual on the kind of bra I was wearing)
So glad that Victoria's Secret semi annual sale coincided with my new bra buying spree. I bought six new bras, all the same but in different colors. (Shut up, that's what I do. I buy things in multiple colors. One day I'll tell you about the time I had 10 gap sweaters, all the same but in different colors.) AND LET ME SAY THIS: New bras rock. Especially when you're used to wearing something that serves almost no purpose.
My girls went from looking down and depressed to looking up and out. I look like I lost ten pounds. Plus, I went down a size because I'm no longer having to tuck my boobs into my pant waist.
I guess all this time I've been hesitant to get new bras because I like spending my money and effort on things that people can see. But let me just say, if hell is wearing old, nasty bras then this is heaven.
I thought about taking a picture of my old bras but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I threw them out. I'm not ever planning on using them again. And if I need a nursing bra again, I have bigger problems than not having any.
Do yourself a massive favor ladies: Find a new bra that you love and buy at least 15 of them. If not 15, at least one.
