Padded Bras Betray Nipplephobia??
So, WHAT is with the padded bras?
Today I went to Jacob Lingerie, where I bought my favorite "not fancy, not sporty" cotton underwire bra from. It is still serviceable but getting a little grey (it should be a sharp black). But not only have they moved, they have decided this year to bring out "a line" of padded bras... I swear there were only three bras in the whole store that did not have at least a quarter inch to half inch of padding... and they were pale pink and pale purple lace, with ruffles around the bottom, matching seethrough lace g-strings.
The woman behind the cash said "that is what people want". Well, not me. Perhaps people want a choice. Like 80% of the cotton bras being padded, and the other 20% not. What a concept.
Now what is it, girls wanting padded bras? A quarter inch of padding isn't gonna make you busty if you aren't already. Do women have lumpy breasts they are trying to smooth over? Or bony rib cages... after all that is why you put foam over the bedsprings, non? so they're not so pokey?
Or maybe after the Janet Jackson breast thing, they all have nipplephobia. AAACK! Imagine if I get an ERECT NIPPLE!! I must have padding to smooth it all out!!!
Some of the bras DID have a half to one inch of padding in the lower part of the cup, obviously to give a lift to those like me who don't have cleavage. But what the hell is the quarter inch of padding doing in the rest of the cup? If you want cleavage, shouldnt you want nipplage??
Anyways, it saved me $30, cuz there wasn't a single bra in the place I even wanted to try on. Not a single one.
I have to wait for "next year's line" (apparently last year's "line" wasn't so cushiony smooth). I guess if my first Jacob bra has lasted since 1998, then I can wait another year. Or shop elsewhere.
The search for Elita bras was not that much more successful... the store l'Ecrivaine said had them on cheap didn't have white in my size (um when did 34 get so small!!) nor any grey at all, nor any racerbacks...necessary with my new $4.99 stripey t-shirt, with scooped armpits... they give you really nice shoulders but you need a racerback bra... the one I have now looks like mice have been chewing on it. Then I think I have it since about 1987. hehe.
Well, I am going to sit back for a moment and enjoy my new homemade espresso coffee... like i need another one today... But l'Ecrivaine is painfully Quakerish (that is her religion of childhood and of choice) and gets rid of EVERYTHING... and led me to the basement where she has a shelf of gifts people have given her that she doesn't want cluttering up her very spare home... and there was a Salton espresso/cappuccino machine. So of course *I* need more clutter so I grabbed it.
The coffee has come out quite nice, but somehow after about two and a half seconds, the steam stopped coming out of the steam spout thing, and instead the machine looked like those smoking time machines in late afternoon kid's scifi shows, minus the bells and lights. It DIDN'T explode, but milk or no milk, there was NOTHING coming out of that steam spout no matter how much I opened the knob. Very very strange. I guess it is blocked, but with what, and so completely as to keep all STEAM in I have no idea.
No bother. Though I think I may just give it away myself, since what the hell does one need a steamer that doesn't steam for?
Maybe I can trade it in for a secondhand portable cdplayer. The one ob gave me (it skips when you walk with it) has decided to only work on alternate days, and that is pissing me off today, since my mom DID get me the new kd lang cd of Canadian cover songs... it came in a separate package today. youpee! :) I will see if it will play tonight what it was pouting about this afternoon. Then I can write you a review.
Damn, wish it weren't so late, I'd call back ob's cousin... I was talking with her last night and her phone kicked the bucket... she called me back today but I was out. Turns out she can't give me a ride to Musicfest since she is not going herself. Silly woman, thinks that having money to build a corral for her horses is more important! LOL! T'is ok. Though it would be lovely to see her. Maybe I can stop by and visit her sometime. She is very fun, easygoing, outdoorsy and talkative. Nice lady.
More photos later or tomorrow...
DAMN! Be careful, VERY careful!! I googled "jacob lingerie" and then "bra" to find you a good link, maybe some photos of their "this year's line"... and I clicked on one link and got in popup porn hell! And I mean popup porn hell! One little window wouldn't go away, not by clicking on it, not by Control + W, nothing. It seemed to be the launcher for all the other windows, cuz even if I closed all the others, and left it (since anytime I tried to close it I got a "IE script error" window that didn't allow me to do ANYTHING else but go "ok" to it)... in a few minutes another bloody popup with teen tits, or big breasted beauties etc etc would come up. AAAGH! Yes, Dangerspouse, that would be delightful to you. But it meant that IE finally crashed and THANK GOD I had saved my entry, suspecting trouble was brewing. Jeepers. BE VERY VERY CAREFUL when you google padded bras, eh! :)
Here is horoscope for Monday, August 9:Hah. they're out to lunch again. I got a drawing done for a client, billed other work, and did three pages of comics. Elegant evening out. I AM going to turn good-for-me-no-fat veggies into a heartclogging delight...
This is so easy it is a sin, and so good, it is redeemed again. mmmm. Somehow I am inspired by veggies again. MMMMM.
