For as long as I can remember whenever I have gained weight it has been very obvious in my chest area - my breasts gain weight. Which is not a big deal for many and might actually be welcomed. But I am a fully endowed sister to start with so any weight gain just exasperates the situation. During my pregnancy and especially those early days of nursing my breasts reached astronomical proportions. You can imagine the difficulty I had finding a nursing bra that was comfortable, fully supportive and well fitting. I went through numerous bras and the one that I really liked was discontinued so many times I wore substandard bras.
Anyhow, nursing is now over but the bra problem persists. Bras for the well-endowed fall into a couple of categories - ugly as sin or torpedo shaped. Here is an example that fits the bill.
Kinda looks nice right? Looks can be deceiving. That lace? Itchy as hell. Wide straps? They dig into your shoulders like nobody's business. And the shape? Who has breasts that shoot straight out like torpedoes (aside from mid-nineties Madonna)?
Finding a pretty, supportive and comfortable bra is difficult for the double D and up set. One day last week I was lamenting to my husband about my problem. I certainly had no expectation that he would have anything to say other than "go shopping and continue to look".
Here is where that "gotta love it" moment comes into play. My husband looked at me with all seriousness and says "Why don't you try the new bra by Jill Scott (for those of you unfamiliar with Jill she is a singer/songwriter and one of my favorite artists)? Her bras are for the well-endowed full figured woman and has straps that don't cut into your shoulders as well as a unique design for lift."
I about fell on the floor. To this day I don't know how my husband knew all of this information about the Butterfly Bras but I loved that he wanted to help me out and provided me with a great answer for my dilemma. These little out of the blue surprises are what makes marriage so lovely.
There you have it, the story of my "gotta love it" moment.
Now I want to hear from you. What type of "gotta love it " moments have you had with your significant other?
