How a Bra Nearly Ended My Life

On Saturday, I got all dressed up in a fancy, strapless dress.

I wore heels, which is practically blog-worthy in and of itself these days.

Halfway through the night, my strapless dress was driving me INSANE. The "girls"? They could not be contained. At all.

I was pulling up the top of my dress every 3 seconds. Over and over. And over.

At one point, I went to the bathroom and unzipped my dress to breathe for a few minutes.

And discovered the truth - that my strapless bra underwire was attempting to kill me by rubbing a hole in my chest.

Not kidding.

And because I am nothing if not completely all about oversharing... I present to you:

The Bra Abrasion Sensation

But that's all the stories I can get out this Monday morning because I have to go figure out how to NOT wear a bra to work. Because... ouch.

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Holy friggin cow! That's insane. I knew there was something wrong when a man invented the thing.

Brittany said...

That's terrible! Where did you buy that bra?! I would surely try to return it. I hope your feeling better soon!

Ashley said...

EEK! That looks painful!
I hate, hate, hate underwire and i particularly hate strapless bras because of the constant pulling and tugging I feel I need to do....
so about 5 years ago I found these:

but you can fine 'em at walmart!
they stick to you, or your dress, depending on the type you get, and they STAY :)

Holly said...

Ouch- know the feeling - I've had a few dresses have the internal boning come through (I'm lookin' at you BCBG) and proceed to rub/stab me all night.
Try wearing a sportsbra today if there's any way you could pull it off.

Andhari said...

Wow. Does it hurt? It looks hurt!

KatherineAnne said...

Ouch! Bad Bra! I hope you can get away with not wearing one today, that looks like it hurts! xoxo, KA

Beth McC. said...

I have had a similar experience and its not good!!

Thomasina said...

I agree with Brittany, try to return the bra. If you can't return it, definitely write to the company and send them a picture of what happened to you after wearing their merchandise!

Lauren @ Dreams Take Flight said...

Oh my gosh, that is awful! Who makes a bra that does that?!

PinkSass said...

I'm sorry but all I can do is laugh.

Miss you friend.

that looks painful! i HATE strapless bras! since i needed one for my wedding i tried a few different options and fell in love with the abigail bra by aerie. it's actually a convertible bra and is so comfortable that i will actually use it as a regular bra too. i wore it as a strapless for a full day and didn't have to adjust myself once!

Rachel said...

OUCH!!!! Strapless bras are bad. I found one I loved a few years ago, but it's quite the challenge!

I had to wear my crazy strapless bra on Saturday too, but I used the clear straps too. They're so uncomfortable. I think Calvin Klein has terrorists manufacturing his bras, because this thing felt like a torture device against my ribs. And I was DEVASTATED the next morning when I realized I hadn't packed another bra after all and I had to wear the one from hell again all day.

Cole said...

Holy ouchiness!

Fayetteville Fashionista said...

I hate strapless bras, too...dangerous!

In this wonderful life... said...

lovelylittleruffles said...

OUCH!!! I just recently bought the best strapless bra ever from Victoria's Secret! No more tugging anymore!

Her Southern Heart said...

Ouch! That's not good at all.

OMG- I literally have the same problem with my stupid strapless bra...it cuts into me and is so painful.
