I don't remember much about the day in general. But I do know it was a Friday. I am sure I got dressed sluggishly as I usually do and got the kids to school. This was a special Friday because it was Book Club day. I love book club. It was just my sister (in-laws) and myself. We discussed the book which I had not finished reading yet. We then chatted about a million other things, as we usually do, late into the night.
I came home to a quiet, dark house. I decided to finish reading my book in my walk-in closet so I would not disturb anyone. I finished the last page around 2 am and proceeded to undress for bed. After I removed my shirt and bra, I was very surprised to find I still had on another bra ! I laughed out loud as I realized I had been wearing two bras, one right over the top of the other, all day long. In my robotic state that morning I had put two on without even noticing.
I called my sister the next morning because I knew she would get a good laugh out of it. And she did. My two sisters had been wondering aloud to each other if I had gotten "work done" because I was looking extra bodacious. Or perhaps I was stuffing my bra with those chicken cutlets in a box. No, I would not do either of those things (okay maybe I would) But it did get me thinking.
I have never shied away from any of the padded, or shape creating bras. Especially after nursing six kids. I will take any help I can get. But I did not even notice anything different on the two bra day. It was so comfortable! I was onto something. No need for plastic surgery or stuffing chicken cutlets in my bra. Just wear two bras! Nobody but you, God and your partner will know.
So now the women in my family refer to it as a "two-bra day". The day you are feeling a little frumpy, a little less than perky, or you really need to get good service at the auto repair shop, go ahead and slip on that 2nd bra. You don't need to look like our dear friend Dolly, but it does not hurt to accentuate our positives.
