A new lease on life!

A few weeks ago I was in the studio late night working away and catching up on Project Runway (you do remember my obsession with Tim Gunn, no?)  I was sort of half listening while the designers were given the task of designing an outfit for Nina Garcia- yeah, no small feat there. Anyway, as I worked away, I could hear that she was circling the workroom talking to each of the designers when one of them, talking about a plunging neckline,  sheepishly asked her what undergarments she usually wears. Tim looked at the designer, looked at Nina and said "Well you don't wear a bra, do you Nina?" She replied with "No" This stopped me dead in my tracks and really got me thinking!!  Why do I wear a bra?? If Nina Garcia doesn't wear one, why do I??  Yes, I liken myself to her at times! lol.  That Project Runway episode was like a new found lease on life for me! 
Au Revoire

Let me tell you a little about where I live.....and the boobies here. A LOT of women in this town have implants. Large ones. We belong to a fitness club where most of the gals come to exercise class, or better yet, tennis lessons scantily dressed. Little bottoms, large tops, if you know what I mean. I went through a time where I thought for sure implants were in my future. But the risks of surgery never really did sit well with me so I resorted to push up bras....you know, the bra that comes with half a boob already in it?  The though of implants now seriously makes me laugh. As does the push up bra. Why do we think this is the way women should look? It's so skewed! I have sworn off trying to look like a C when I am really ....oh probably like an A! lol. I like my little boobs. And I love the fact that I don't have to wear a bra if I don't want to. Over sized implants for the sake of vanity look horrible! Little lace bralettes are waaaayyyyy cuter and way more chic, no?   Ask Nina Garcia, she'll tell you!

Happy Stylish A Cup Friday! ;)
