There is nothing like the perfect fitting comfortable bra.
If you have ever been fit with the perfect bra then you will know that it feels like the heavens have opened up and the bra gods are shining their light on you. And only you.
I have a disturbing suspicion that my orgasm face vaguely resembles my comfortable bra face.
If you have never had this experience then my heart weeps for you. I strongly suggest you get yourself professionally fitted. The results will bring tears of joy to your eyes.
There are only two circumstances where I would ever let go of a comfortable fitting bra:
NO I’M NOT BEING DRAMATIC!
You calm down!
You may be wondering exactly where I am going with this.
Comfortable bras are serious business.
It can be deeply depressing to think that you will have to have to give up your old bras when you fall pregnant.
And you will have to give them up eventually…
Your body is going to get bigger. And your boobs… Well, those are going to get big too.
Porn star big.
As you grow; your once comfortable bra is going to start squeezing you like an anaconda.
But I have good news for you!
When you start to feel your bra start to dig into your shoulders and upper torso form your new baby weight you can not only loosen the pressure but continue wearing the same bra as well.
Through the use of a bra extender
Well, it’s this thing I am holding in my hand:
Doesn’t look like much, does it?
To be honest, bra extenders are one of those things that are so simple you will wish you thought of it yourself.
Lets take a closer look..
A bra extender is essentially a piece of elastic with metal eyes sewn into it.
The rear of the bra extender has two hooks and stitching to hold the eyes in place
The elastic can provide an extra 1-3 inches to your bra closure, providing you with some much needed relief.
But how do you put a bra extender on?
The extender sits between your bras closure (the hook and the eyelet it attaches to) adding some extra length to .
If you have ever on a bra before then you will have no difficulty with a bra extender
Seems simple enough; right?
Just like that….
A bra extender doesn’t just help with your old bras. It can help with your new ones too!
If you find your body expanding at an incredibly fast rate during pregnancy (and some of you will) then you will also find yourself outgrowing maternity bras at similar rate. That is one expensive hobby.
While you will still outgrow your maternity bra, a bra extender will see you get an extra couple of weeks use before you require the next save.
For how cheap a bra extender is, I consider it a pregnancy essential.
So you have decided you want to join the order of the bra extender?
One more step:
You will need to take a look at your existing bra and determine how many hooks it has. You want to buy a bra extender with the same number of hooks.
After this your best bet is to buy online. From experience maternity stores try to rob you blind over what little more than piece of elastic with metal hooks.
Right.. you have determined how many hooks your bra has?
Good… Now here’s where to get your matching bra extender. You will wish you got one sooner!
Seriously, while a bra extender is one of the best things that will happen to you while pregnant, there are other situations where you can benefit from them too:
So buy a bra extender and put all your problems behind you. Get it? Bra.. behind your back.. Behind you!
Sigh… I think it’s time to wrap this article up.
