You know what’s funny? I’ve always thought that my puberty was terbantut because every guy in my class or guys that I know teased me about the size of my boobs. Someone even spread a rumor back in secondary school days that I actually stuff tissue in my bra to make my boobs look fuller -_- but let’s not go there. Btw it’s not true okay!
Anyway, like I said, I’ve always thought my boobs were retarded because they stopped growing after a while and they were nowhere near the size of my mumsy’s bosom. And I was stupid enough to wear oversized bras to sleep at night in hope of them growing into the cup size while I’m sleeping wtf. Eventually, I gave up and accepted my fate, hahahahaha. At least I’m blessed with a fleshy ass, HA!
But my love for sexy lingerie never died, lol. I fell in love with my mum’s black lace bra when I first set eyes on them. They reminded me of the ones Julia Roberts wore in “Pretty Woman”. My mum let me wear them for my aunt’s wedding dinner one night but it didn’t fit me at all, I was way too small hahahaha. So unfair! I love sexy lace bra but why can’t I wear one?!
Since I couldn’t wear any lace bra, I could only make do with other bras – cotton bra, sports bra, t-shirt bra, you name it. I bought and wore so many different brands of bras and believe it or not, I never had a favorite. Triumph and Kayser bras gave me flesh cuts. I wore my strapless Kayser bra to my graduation last year and it was unbearably painful I had to take it off once I stepped out of the hall and hid the bra in my handbag wtf, HAHAHAHA. When I got home and checked, I had a big bruise/blood clot in between my boobs T_T
Triumph and Wacoal bras don’t really last – the wires usually stick out at the sides after 1 year. Triumph bras don’t give me good side support as well. Plus it’s seriously overpriced in Malaysia! You can actually get a Triumph Maximiser bra for only $10 here in K-Mart. Didn’t get one though after trying ‘cos the paddings were ridiculously thick I’d be cheating if I wore them, lol! Elle McPherson was the one I least complained about. Love their romantic range with frills and satin. They weren’t really fitting for me though. I have a feeling I’ve had numerous unknown nip-slips when I bend down -_-
My point is, I was never satisfied with any of the bras that I bought or wore, and I thought that was normal because I wasn’t born with “normal” breasts. Not until I came across this post one day and decided to give Victoria’s Secret a try. VS is famous for their lingerie, I know that. I just don’t know whether they’d fit me or not considering my boobs are next to nothing if compared with angmoh girls’. She triggered the itch in me and so I browsed VS’s website that entire night and placed an order for an obscene amount of money hahaha. But it was worth it. You’ll see.
I just got my package today – a week later than scheduled because the postman only sent me a final notice yesterday but there were no prior notices?! Anyhow I was SO anxious to open my package I headed home during lunchtime just so I could try them on, hahaha!!!
I had to take this photo first before opening the plastic bags like a crazy woman.
First thing I tried on was their lace demi bra – as recommended by creativebitchin, and I fell in love with it instantly! It’s an unlined bra but fits so much better than all the other bras that I wear. Unpadded but gives you a firm lift and a nice shape. I like the fact that it’s unpadded because it feels more natural when I touch it, HAHAHA. /coughs
It’s also super, super comfy why is that!! I can finally wear a sexy lace bra without looking like a 10-year-old in her mother’s bra. /teary eyes
I feel like I’ve been wearing all the wrong bras my entire life -_- Doubt if I’ll ever buy any other brand besides VS from now on.
In an extremely good mood now because I’m happy when my boobs are happy =D
