Today, one of my bras broke.

The under wire showed itself to the world. It didn't have the decency to poke out under my arm, as broken bras normally do. No, this one came out in the center, right by the pretty little bow.

This is not a minor thing. My bras are, by necessity, feats of modern engineering and thus, they are expensive.

Fortunately, my mother gave me a gift certificate to Nordstrom's for my birthday. I know now what I will spend it all on. Unless they no longer carry my size. In which case, hello,!

saw your link through FB. I hate hate hate underwire bras, but alas, they are a must for me as well. Nords is a good place to get them, for sure.

The first thing I do when I get home: take off the bra! Freedom at last!

I HATE when a bra I like [which is saying something, because I just hate bras on principle] breaks. It's like the world is out to get me.

Good luck finding a new one!

I hate when that happens.

I will not wear an underwire. I have been poked too often. I, also, have enormous breasts. I recommend Bali Double Support. No wires, and they come in GINORMOUS, which is what I wear.

Ooh, hello, this post is for me! I don't wear underwires either, and I'm still in maternity bras (yay!) and thinking I might be in them for ever, as they don't make non-underwire non-maternity bras in an H cup. (actually I've been going to weightwatchers for a couple of months now and I've dropped a cup size or two I reckon, so I need to buy more slightly less ginormous bras pretty soon)

I'm glad the wire didn't stab you under your arm though.

I'm glad there weren't any major injuries. Those underwire bras are like ninja stars.
