I was recently introduced to the idea that push up bras are false advertising. For some reason its stuck in my head. I keep coming back to it. Maybe its because of the idea that I am inherently advertising anything. Or maybe its the thought that my comfort is something to be scrutinized by someone else. I might be more sensitive about breast size conversations right now because of the size change post surgery. I know I am. I specifically bowed out of a conversation about underwear because of it. I will get over it and move on. Right now its a sore spot.
Still, push up bras simply move tissue from one place to another. They don't really add size, they change shape. No biggie right? Apparently no. Hell moving the straps on a bra to a cross in the back makes the breasts look 1-2 cup sizes larger, is that false advertising too?
I've been wearing super supportive bras since high school when I got bigger than a b cup. Wearing a bra that is supportive I rarely think about my breasts. It certainly not advertising in any way. There are shirts I own that I would say are advertising. Bras are rarely seen. I don't wear bras for anyone but me. I am certain than anyone who is allowed to interact with me would prefer I didn't wear any bra so its all for my comfort. The damn things are heavy!
NRE is being discussed a bit more with people that I know. I suppose I have a bit of that going on myself. I really enjoy Shirtless' company. Every once in a while I stumble on a subject that reminds me I am older than he is by a fair bit and even more than his gf. 5 years I am used to, 10 or more is a little squeaky. Still, his mind is fascinating and we seem to be navigating those waters fairly well. We aren't in the same place all that often so despite living in the same state we are getting to know one another better online.
Winter continues. I have plans at the end of Feb to go visit the sun in AZ. Trying to figure out how to manage the brain til then. I dislike feeling like my brain is a chemistry experiment but balancing all the factors is a bit like that. Vit D, sun exposure, protein, pain killers, activity, rest... Its a giant pain. Starting to understand why the snowbird phenomenon exists. Could I manage a life where 1.5-2 months of the year I was living somewhere else? Better question, would my business survive that?
