Weekend Update

My delightfully long weekend has come to an end (sigh). BUT I'm back on the vacation train tomorrow after work. The long-awaited Disney trip is nearly here! I AM SO EXCITED!

In preparation for a long trip, there seems to be endless 'extras' that must be acquired. After purchasing 1 extra large suitcase, 2 sets of snorkel gear, Disney paraphernalia for 2 nieces, travel size everything, new underclothes, new bathing suits...hopefully we have what we need now.

Wait! Back up. Yes, I said new underclothes (bras for me!) and bathing suit (1 for me!). Steve and I made a quick trip to the Mall of America Saturday afternoon. That big ol' box of retail and we only went to 2 stores: 1 - Disney Store, 2 - Macy's.

Macy's did me well. I found a tankini suit that comes in bra sizes!!! What!? Yes, friends, it's true. And although 32DD was not to be found, with the stretchy swimsuit fabric, I was able to fit into a satisfactory 32D. It has underwire cups and adjustable non-halter straps. I feel free as a bird...supported as a...oh I don't know. You get the point. To make that purchase even more awesome, the cost of both swim top and swim bottom amounted to less than $25! A steal!

I had every intention of making my way over to Nordstrom's where friend Kristen highly recommend bra-buying. We were severely crunched for time, so I instead journeyed a few feet from swimwear to intimate apparel at Macy's. I took advantage of the buy-2-get-1-free bra sale. I reverted back to 34DD on 2 of the bras and dug deep for the one 32DD. Each are a different brand and I fully intend to review each one for my fellow busty followers.

Announcer: "Jill, you just bought 3 new bras and a supportive bathing suit...what are you going to do next?"

This is one of the softest bras I have ever worn. The fabric is so comfortable; no itchy, scratchy feeling, and it stays cool despite hot southern summer temperatures. The only complaint is that the bra does not minimize; it supports me very well, but does not minimize as stated. I could wear this bra all day, every day! I would recommended Playtex 4049
