no BRA day

there's some buzz on the internets about national no BRA day, i can't find much, i saw something about BRA standing for Breast Reconstruction Awareness and I can get my head around that one for sure.

Sometimes, and i know it's well meaning, with love, and a heartfelt attempt to be positive in the face of terribleness, and it diffuses the awkward for the other.... but sometimes people like to make light of the "new boobs" - like aren't you lucky you don't have to wear a bra, ooh you got a free (hahaha) boob job, and wow you got great boobs out of it...

They aren't beautiful, i'm not lucky, it wasn't free, it wasn't a boob job. I would wear a bra 24/7, look shitty in a halter, complain about 40 something year old breast feeding boobs down to my waist, all of that to have my original breasts still on my body.

Yes - there are times, when i have a kick ass dress or top with weird back, shoulder, neckline issues where i gladly discard the bra, and look awesome.  And i utter a few words of grattitude. Gratitude in all things is the key to happiness in life.  So don't get me wrong, bitterness has no place. But reality does.

On another boob note:
Last night i had a dream i had a baby, and in the dream I felt my milk come in, and somehow also in the dream i realized I couldn't breastfeed. it was kind of sad

  1. I appreciate your reality check perspective, as I think people can get a little bit too cute in their well-meaning efforts to draw attention to the cause. On the other hand, I don't care for the "Save the Tatas" slogan, as it seems to represent a male-centric reaction to a uniquely female issue. Just my two cents.
