A few years ago I feared that my favorite bra from Victoria’s Secret was being discontinued. Thankfully, they were simply upgrading the model and after just a few weeks it was available again, better than before. A couple times a year, they have big sales and free shipping offers, and it’s then that I take the opportunity to stock up on some new colors and/or replace any that need to be retired, always remaining faithful to my favorite.
Since all the sizes and colors are available online, I tend to use their site to do my shopping. I know exactly what I want and can use their coupons to make the cost more manageable. Other than the wait time, I find it easier than going to the store where they may or may not have the color or size I am looking for. This past week, I received an email about a percentage off AND free shipping on their website. I just came from visiting their website, and much to my dismay the collection is still being sold, but they’ve changed the name of the bras. Now what am I going to do!?!? If I order them and they don’t fit right I’ll be stuck paying an arm and a leg to ship them back.
The logical option is to head to the mall and try it on. Which is fine, because it might be exactly the same. But if it’s not, I’m going to be irritated. I hate bra shopping. It’s very hard to tell if a bra REALLY fits within the 30 seconds it’s on in the dressing room. So you buy it, hoping that it does truly fit. Then you get it home and try to wear it for more than an hour where it pokes, or rides up, or slips down, or makes your clothes look silly. I’m all for worthwhile change, but why mess with a good thing.
If bra shopping is required, this is what I have to look forward to. Fingers crossed my “workhorse” is still available…
Makes me giggle every time. I tend to be swayed by the “useless boob bedazzler”, and then I regret it after getting it home. Hmmm, that could be the story of my life!
