Hot Bra

 

I miss the village post office.
I miss the complete disarray Jenny the postmistress was always in when faced with something more complex than an order of more than two first class stamps 
She was surrounded by paper that often threatened to engulf her completely.
I miss those untidy days.

I have to travel to the next village to post my parcels, so today went to the Spar which doubles as post office and supermarket to get my nephew’s birthday gift sent. 
I waited patiently as two women argued in front of me about social distancing and hid behind my mask 
The wait was rather long, and so I was grateful to eventually leave the claustrophobic queue , pay for my post and leave the hot shop. 
When I was outside I pulled down my mask and took several gulps of fresh cool air with a sigh.
“ Now you blokes know what’s it’s like to be a woman!  “ so said one of the women who was involved in the argument  
I nodded and smiled politely
“ We have the same feeling of relief when we take our bras off after a day at work !“ 

And for once I was lost for a word of reply

  4. There was a lovely Post Office that I visited at a closeby village but sadly it had to be demolished completely after vandals smashed their way in with a bulldozer.Bras are something in my younger days that were a disappointment for all concerned as it was at the time of wonderbra and the reality was there were 2 fried eggs in the frying pan(only for best these days)x

  8. Trying to figure out if I, if someone said that to me, would just let me jaw drop or collapse on the ground in laughter.

  9. Why women put up with the wearing of bras is a mystery to me. I hate them.

  13. No reply was needed, John ... LOL
    When the boobs hit the belly ...
    And ripple like jelly ...
    You know there is no chance of
    recapturing the bounce!
    LOL

  14. Half of us [approx] will just have to take her word for it. I certainly have no yearning to try out what it feels like.

  15. Taking off a girdle gives the same relief. Back before the invention of panty hose, if you wanted to wear nylon stockings you had to wear a girdle with those little clasps that attach to the tops of the hose. (Garter belts were for hussies.) I think back to how slim I was in high school then and definitely didn't need a girdle for any other reason except for that but had to wear one anyway. What sweet relief to get home and take that damn thing off! Now they have "shape wear" but I don't own any of it. Thank god.

  16. Only a problem if your boobs are big, I suspect, though have no personal experience! I do miss our local post office, though...they took away the post box, too, when it closed, which was really mean, and very inconvenient!

  17. Blessed blogger is refusing my comments again. She was very, very right. And a bra (like mask) is even more unpleasant in hot weather.

    Well, heading back to the late 1960's/ early 70's, we had a contraption called a 'pantie girdle', like big knickers but made of industrial strengh catapult elastic, with supender clips for your stockings attached. Try getting those off to have a wee (or whatever!) after a few Babychams!
    Good old days?

    I find daily life much more comfortable with a bra on thanks to gravity.
    Girdles are a good item to leave in the past as they were too hot and too confining.
    Ta for the chuckles!

    Hugs!

  20. Don't you get that feeling when you come home from work and take your underwear off and slip the sweats on?

  21. I have not had a bra on in years. Have you ever heard of the 'pencil test' for deciding if a woman needed a bra or not? If a pencil placed under a breast could be held, you needed a bra. If the pencil just fell and was not held, you did not need a bra.

    I did not need a bra until my 50s. Now, at 74 I don't care anymore!

  22. face masks and bras - what a hoot.

  23. I've seen Youtube videos about how to make a mask out of a bra. Now there's a thought! I wonder if, once this bloody pandemic is over, there'll be some enterprising folk making bras out of masks? The mind boggles. xx

  24. In my teens I was in the reserve militia for basic training one summer and would get out of breath when jogging a mile-and-a-half at 5 a.m. till our commander suggested I put on a bra. It made all the difference; I'd never have thought of it myself but she obviously knew!

    I'm not particularly large-busted nor small-busted either but if my boobs get bouncing they will attract attention that I don't want. Thus I wear an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder in public and rip the thing off as soon as I'm home again.

  25. Probably on a par with you climbing into your tracky/tacky bottoms after a fraught day at the hospice... just different dangling bits...

  27. Nope, taking off the bra feels BETTER!

  28. I thought she was going to talk about the heat - I find wearing a mask like having an infinite hot flash! The only time I don't mind it is when I leave a store in cold weather - then it's a good thing :)

  29. I was just thinking the other day my breast really does look like those funny cartoons where it hangs down to your belly button, no bounce at all no need for a bra quite freeing.

  30. hahaha
    Oh dear. That's one of those feelings I will never, ever miss.
    XOXO

    P.S. You'd like to see my place? I have made several posts showing it! They're titled 'I'll show you mine'. Yep, I'm subtle.

    LMAOOO

  31. And tights, we were once reminded after a night of drag.

  32. Of course this year, the working from home world they didn't need them any more & embraced the softer, less punishing on the flesh, bra top.
    Though as I'm now under the care of the nurses at the lipodema clinic, every morning I have to drag on compression hold-up stockings & retaining shorts to kind of flatten things. Only a few weeks in, so daily Liza Minelli as Sally Bowles impressions as Howard helps me haul the things up without dislocating fingers have yet to go stale.
