Bra

Brassieres

Where I grew up, if you had even the semblance of breast tissue, you wore a bra. Only completely white trash girls didn’t wear a bra…period. Now, there were some exceptions, backless evening gowns, tanks with built in bras etc, but there still could not be any signs of movement…or nipple action. I slept in a sports bra for most of my life just in case I had to get up and be seen (fire, tornado, late night visitor) in the middle of the night.

The only place you really saw “bra-less wonders” were in…oohh… maybe the 7-11 on a Saturday morning….you know the ones with orange hair and black roots, flannel pants, and a t-shirt. Flopping about as they got their morning cigarette fix.

So to get to my point…

I have now come across a circle of friends who view “bra-less-ness” differently than I do. They believe that if you have, and I quote “perky” breasts, you should show em off…GO BRA-LESS. I would have NEVER been seen in public in a t-shirt or tank top with no bra, but because of peer pressure, I have to admit, I have run into a few take out food places lately obviously bra-less.

THEN, the other day, I was watching a Whoopi Goldberg interview, and just happened to catch her saying that she NEVER wears a bra. She tried her first few days on the view, but just couldn’t do it. THE WOMAN IS ON NATIONAL TELEVISION AND DOESN’T WEAR A BRA. To her credit, I have never noticed, so I guess that is a good thing. Anyway…I was just wondering, am I way off on this?

Whoopi ain't wearing no bra?!!!

She does not fall into the perky category.

I'm just saying.

But God love her.

"you know the ones with orange hair and black roots, flannel pants, and a t-shirt. Flopping about as they got their morning cigarette fix" - what a fantastic description. I had a jolly good laugh at that...I think most of them frequent the off license around the back of our house!

Thanks for coming over to see us. Your visit and words was most appreciated.
