My Consumer Report…

Awhile back I found myself mesmerized while watching an infomercial …

You know one of those thirty minute deals that says

“BUT WAIT…

If you order NOW we will not only send you this but TWO more just like it!!!”

Normally I do not give these things a second glance much less sit and give it my undivided attention…

which is exactly what I found myself doing.

Now, you might ask what could have caused such a transformation in my character…

I will change the name but let me just tell you!!!

The Mmmm, mmm Bra.

Oh, they did a good job of selling it…

bringing up every downfall of every binder ever worn by woman… and how this wonderful invention of Miss So&so’s was,

for women,

equivalent to the invention of the automatic washing machine, dishwasher, and crock pot all rolled into one…

Now in my minds eye I see this particular under garment in the same category as the hated pantyhose…

Yes, only the devil himself could have thought up such a hateful contraption .

Every single day,

the wide world over, women are terrorized by these hateful binding nuisances…

And here they were promising a day without

digging, slipping, binding bulging, wiggling, worrying,

burping,waddling, fretting

on and on with promises that no binding or any type of under garb should ever make,

yet here they did…

But, WAIT!!!

If you order now you can have not one, not two but, three… for $60.

and if you do this or that we will send you 3 more…

White, Nude, Black, Pink, Purple, Green, Blue…

Your choice,

on and on…

Well, now the skeptic in me said

“Why would I send anyone $60 for something I have not tried on…

for something NO ONE has ever improved

no matter what they claimed!?!

Then the other day in the store what should catch my attention?

In my peripheral vision I happened to see a box

that said

“The Mmm,mmm Bra”

I picked it up and upon inspection saw it was one and the same…

just one,

just one color,

just $20.

Yep, it went into the buggy…

After all they had promised……..

world peace.

The next day…

first rattle out of the box I donned this new wonder garment…

Oh, Man!

The comfort was unbelievable!

I must have exclaimed the extraordinary merits of this

most exciting discovery a million times to my husband

and how thrilled I was with it!

(a man just has no clue!)

And now to share just one more thing about the wonders of the fit and comfort of this under pinning…

late that evening upon removal

I discovered that it might have even been more comfortable had I not been wearing it

Backwards!
