Over the shoulder boulder holders

Fashion is something that really does make me giggle sometimes. Infact it's not even the fashion part of it, it's just pure consumerism gone mad. They'll make anything and try to get people to buy just about anything all in the name of money.





The latest offering, well the clue is in my post title. That's what my dear old Dad used to call bras.


Have you seen the latest bra on offer in Tesco?

It's called The Limitless Bra and is the brain child of some wifey that was on The Apprentice. Apparently you can wear it in hundreds of different ways and therefore is wonderful under your Christmas dresses. Hundreds of ways? Really? Somehow I think you'd find yourself repeating the same way. It's basically 2 cups and a selection of straps. Each cup has 24 hook positions and the back strap has 28. Is it just me or does that just sound like lots of wee bits that would rub and annoy.

And this beauty is a mere snip at £16. Sizes you ask? Well since you asked so nicely 32 - 38 A - D. Looks to me like the only bra size that would acheive any kind of support from this flimsy multi hook thing is the A cup but then maybe I'm just upset as it doesn't go up to my size. :)

Good Lord, where did you get that picture of me from? In my house, the underwired are referred to as Balfour Beattie Engineering & a neighbour once kindly said that he could line his hanging baskets with my fab new moss green bra & knicker set!

Thanks ladies, it's good to know I'm not the only lady who's knockers Gok would love but the high street retailer thinks doesn't exist :D

There isn't a beast out there that could contain my puppies and look gorgeous at the same time....

One of the "100s" of ways to wear this is on your head as a small cap or both cups as earmuffs, the light padding keeps those ears warm without too much aural interference ;)
