I was shopping by myself this weekend. A (gasp) clothing store. I know. Me? Shopping? It has been a while.
While I was a the store I noticed that they had some bras on sale, and given that I had been "limping" around in a strapless bra for a few days because some of my bras had fallen apart, some were in the wash, and I had a spanky athletic top from last year that had a Y strap in the back on. The sale bras were athletic bras that had a matching Y strap in the back, and since I am a teacher and had actually played freeze tag on Friday wearing a strapless bra during gym without scarring any Kindergarteners, I thought I should try the athletic bras on.
While in the dressing room I tried the bra on and put my spanky athletic top back on over it to see the effect. The straps matched...Plus! The bra showed a tiny bit, but it looked nice...Plus!
Then I lifted my arm. And horror of all horrors...the athletic bra was snug enough that it created a wading pool of extra skin, in a wing like appearance, under each armpit.
I actually had to tuck my 42.5 year old skin flaps into my bra! Ga...ross.
Yes, I bought the bras. And I have done 20 push ups each night in hopes that the skin wings will disappear soon.
