Ooo La La… Nice Knickers!

It’s the weekend, YAY! My other half is at work all weekend and this has led to a little alone time – bliss. And with alone time comes self reflection and time for a slab of self indulgence. I like to do the things I cannot do when he is around (well, I could, but there would be not a shred of relaxation) such as paint my toe nails, re-organise my makeup drawer and have a clothing amnesty. The latter is what brought me to this post…

So recently I have discovered there are actually shops other than Ann Summers to buy nice underwear. Quite why I had never discovered any of the following before is beyond me – I guess I had never really given what’s under my clothes as much thought or attention as my actual clothes.

Women ask to touch them, men do not always ask but low and behold they want to touch them. The truth: I hate having big boobs!!! If you are reading this and you think I must be mad, find someone with a rather large chest and ask them if they like it. I guarantee most will say the same as me – it is an absolute burden!

Reasons why:


Zip up / button up? Forget it.

Have you ever seen a sausage bursting out of it’s case once put in a frying pan? That is what I feel like in a button up top. Found one that does up, brilliant! Oh wait, the sleeves are down to my waist and it is so baggy people will start giving you their loose change.
Zip up, figure hugging dress, great!!… starts doing zip up… zips over bum…hips…this looks fab I love this dress…gets zip to bra level…stuck. The amount of times I have considered whether it is acceptable to zip a dress half way up and put on a jacket and hope for the best. Never quite plucked up the courage though.
