The Plight of the Dreaded Strapless Bra

Today, we are talking ta-tas!  I have debated whether to post these photos, but ladies, you KNOW what I am talkin' about!  
The strapless bra. 
Ugh. 
My rib cage hates me just typing those words.  
I've always been well-endowed in the breasty area.  Some ladies will read this and think, "what's the issue?".  You clearly haven't had to bend over and hoist your ladies into a strapless bra and hated it from the second those hooks close. 
I was convinced having double Ds and beyond, I was destined to never have a comfortable strapless.  I passed by cute strapless dresses, ignored halters and accepted my fate.
Until this summer. I swear ALL the cute tops this year require a strapless. I'm not into wearing a halter with a regular bra.  Please don't show the straps!
So, I decided to take my bosom and put an expert to the test.  I went to Peaches, a local lingerie store.  Christina measured me and then went to work. Girl earned her paycheque that day!  I tried on quite a few different models and finally, magically, as if sent down on a ta-ta shaped cloud, one fit.
Not only did it fit, it felt good. 
I didn't want to rip it off and apologize to my ribs. 
Say what? 
I've worn it twice, and one of those times was for SEVEN hours straight!
The bra I chose is a Calvin Klein model.  No, I wasn't going to actually show you my underwear, so instead look at the difference a properly fitting garment makes. 
The first photo is me, delusional, believing I can pull off a bandeau:
No Mare, you aren't 19.  Those ladies have nursed a baby.  Support them!
Voila:
Moral of the story: YOU can be welcomed into the strapless world.  Yes, you.  Show those girls off! Now, I'm not wearing this every day, but it sure is fun to have the option!
