That Really Burns My Biscuits #11

Ya know what really burns my biscuits?

The price of sports bras!!

As a busty woman, I can attest to the above picture and the importance of working out in a supportive sports bra. If Lucy and Ethel are not adequately supported, I might suffocate, the girls will inevitably spill out, or I will bruise my ribs during high-intensity cardio. None of these are ideal situations.

With that said, I realize that my large cup size requires more material to cover and support my twins, but three digits?? Come on! The issue with the expensive price is I need more than one bra because I work out almost daily! I was browsing for sports bras not too long ago, and I found one that was amazing! It had adjustable straps to accommodate weight loss and claimed to provide excellent support and full coverage. Okay, so if this bra really does all of that, I don’t mind paying a little more than the $50 ones I purchase at Torrid, which are not bad, but not great, either.

The price shocked me. It was $120!! What?! The bra is not that amazing! If I purchase seven sports bras at $120 a piece, plus tax, that’s almost a grand! For that price, this bra better do more than keep the girls from floppin’ everywhere. They better contain some sort of magic that makes the pounds melt off me after only five minutes of working out! Until then, can I have something a little more reasonably priced?

I just need a flopper stopper; I do not need exotic materials or anything else that warrants spending triple digits on one bra! (Unless they figure out that whole melting pounds after 5 minutes thing).

If big bra (I mean that in the sense like “big pharma.” However, the pun is definitely intended) reads this, can you please get on board with the magical bra, or at the very least, coming down in price a little?

Sincerely,

Busty girls everywhere

Please let me know if any of you have recommendations for supportive bras that aren’t overly expensive.

Love & life lessons,

Kristian

      Thank you, Paula! I am glad it came across as humorous! I hope I find some good sports bras that won’t break my glands or the bank, too! I have a few decent ones but I could use a couple more.

    Personally for me of course I don’t have to live with this issue first hand, but I can imagine that containing the ladies for working out is an issue. It does sound like it’s more expensive that it should be to get what you need…. brilliantly funny post πŸ™‚

    lol – this is a very real problem! There are some sports that I cannot attempt without some expensive scaffolding in place.

    “Lucy and Ethel.” “Flopper stopper.” I’m dying over here. LOL!!! Seriously, though, sheesh!! While I can’t identify with this issue, I can certainly understand the sticker shock. I mean, I wouldn’t pay $120 for a pair of underwear. I’m pretty sure I’ve never paid that much for any article of clothing. Except for maybe an entire suit.

        Have you read Darynda Jones? She has a fabulous series about a woman named Charley Davidson, who turns out to be Death; the Grim Reaper. Charley calls hers “Danger” and “Will Robinson.”

        I have not read this, but I am instantly intrigued! First the play on words, “Charley Davidson,” who is the Grim Reaper. It makes me wonder if the author has an issue with motorcycles, or if she loves them. I absolutely love that she calls hers “Danger” and “Will Robinson.” Hahaha!!

        There is a story behind me calling mine Lucy and Ethel, but it is embarrassing. I should write a post about it. It’s guaranteed a few laughs at my expense! Hahaha!

        Ironically, I never caught the possible reference to the motorcycle. How funny is that? The first book in the thirteen-book series is First Grave on the Right. The rest are in numerical order; second grave, third grave, and so on.

    I think that you should start an organization that fights this unjust pricing scheme. Something like the “mama ta-ta sports bra-gade”. Does that work for you? πŸ˜‰ Lovely photo, by the way! 😍

  6. Your writing has a very humorous tone, which made me smile. I also understand your frustration. Back in “my” day, the largest bra size that could be found in any store (from a box store to the highest quality department store) was 44DD. That size caused me to overflow the cups on the top and size. Back in “my” day (we’re talking the 80s), average sized bras were under $10 and that size bra was about $25 – $30.

    My solution? Find a doctor who is willing to stand tall and tell your insurance company that it is a medical necessity to have a reduction (mine was) and git ‘er done!
    Between the girls, 7 pounds of fat was removed, and I now wear a C cup. It wasn’t without its trials, but after some time passed, and to this day, I remain grateful to be able to afford over-the-shoulder boulder holders! And it’s also nice that my bustline isn’t the first thing people notice about me because it enters a space 5 seconds before the rest of me does!

      I am glad the humor came through, and even more that it made you smile!

      Wow 7 lbs is a lot!! I would have to give some more thought to breast reduction. I do not react well to anesthesia, and they don’t cause me many problems, other than being the first thing people notice, cause as you mentioned, they enter the room before the rest of me. Haha! Thanks, my friend! I am sure I will figure something out.

    OH gosh! “Lucy and Ethel”, Too funny, though I can imagine that kind of price has to be very frustrating! Heck, I hate paying $30 bucks for a bra. Good Luck finding something cheaper! I will try to get Betsy, to use her magical cowbell for you. πŸ™‚

  9. It’s not just sports bras l feel – but bras in general – there isn’t a really good outlet for sensible bras for women – l used to work in ladies fashion and one of my jonbs [supervised of course] was to measure ladies for their bras and there is just a serious shortage of inexpensive decent bras for women. whilst l might say “Free the puppies!!” That’s not always an ideal situatiion for those who are bequeathed under the FLBP label. So good hunting.
