A Girl Oriented Post, and a Plea to Bra Manufacturers.

Yesterday mom and I went shopping not for Christmas presents but in an atrempt to find a bra for me. Sounds simple enough, but my friends who are reading this know I've been searching for a long time years to find a bra in my size, (34F). I have been laughed out of many stores when I enquire if they have my size. Im serious, the sales help laughs and tells me I must be dreaming. Well last week I happened to catch an episode of Oprah in which the whole show was dedicated to finding the right bra. Bingo. I was glued to the television note pad in hand writing down names of bras and the stores that carry them. I went on line and found that Neiman Marcus carries a brand that makes my size,a mere 20 minutes from my house, so thats where mom and I headed. I went to the lingerie dept., was measured and instead of laughing this nice bra fitting specialist sent from heaven said, "Yes we have several things in your size." I found one that actually fits fairly well, and despite the fact its butt ugly I bought it. $75 For an ugly bra.....sniff, sniff, sob. This is my plea: Please make a pretty bra for larger sizes. I'm still a woman and I like lacey things and rhinestones and pearls. Does it really have to look like a bullet proof vest? I'm just going to have to pull out my bedazzler and do it myself.

This is the bra but mine is not this pretty. My staps are easily 1 1/2 inches wide.
