Do you know, a while back I decided I would go back to wearing an underwired bra.
Since my mastectomy I have been wearing non wired, total support bras and they are HORRID.
My remaining boob has started drooping because the ‘total support’s didn’t support much at all and my fake boobicle kept migrating all over the place because there is nothing to stop it!!
So I decided I would try an underwired variety. And I’m pleased I did.
Initially I was a bit worried that it might rub on my scar – which for some reason is most painful at the side – but it didn’t.
It felt so nice, and looked good too. It would look bloomin’ impressive with two boobs!
Very proudly wearing my new, much less bulky and far more pretty, attire I ventured out.
After a while I checked on things and found my boobicle was sneaking up to under my chin….
I was so disappointed, totally gutted in fact.
But I wasn’t going to give up on this. I wanted it to succeed. I needed it to succeed.
I decided to try and make my own pocket to hold the blinking thing in place……I just needed to show it who’s the boss!
I rummaged through my bits of fabric (of which there is plenty) looking for something soft and stretchy. Success a nice soft piece, not the best colour match but that’s ok, it’s only going on the inside. I set about it, I didn’t have a clue how to do this or where to start.
I grabbed the nearest needle and cotton, which happened to be black button thread but not to worry, and got started.
This is the result…….no laughing please
I know it doesn’t look the prettiest but it WORKS and that will do for me x
