Last night I went out in search of a strapless bra. I'd been to all the usual places and none of my findings floated my boat. So as a last ditch effort, I tried Kmart. I don't know what the Kmart by you is like, but the one near my house is a complete dumpski. In fact, the whole area surrounding is bad. I like to call it K-march-right-out-of-there. But I was desperate (as desperate as you can be for a bra, I guess... which is to say, not very).
Anyway, I ventured through the front doors and wandered straight back to the lingerie department, trying to ignore Martha Stewart seducing me with her two-dollar beach towels. I was mid-search when I noticed some colorful bras made by Joe Boxer. The tags said $10.99. $10.99?! ... Now all the ladies out there probably recognize this as the steal that it is, but I called my husband to tell him of my find and he just didn't get it. I got a "Great, honey. When will you be home?" :)
So I took about 10 of these underwired treasures back to the dressing room and tried them all on to discover that not only were they $10.99, they were $10.99 worth of comfort! I beamed with satisfaction. (Doesn't take much to make me happy, does it?)
When it was all over I left Kmart with five new bras in tow, including the elusive comfortable strapless bra. I figured I was probably not going back to Kmart for a good couple of years, so I'd better stock up. And I left a very happy Lope.
