Laughter is the Best Medicine

Thanks to Leigh & Lydia for hosting the Laughter is the Best Medicine Blogfest today.  I don't have a joke to share, instead I have some very helpful hints that will hopefully make your life just a little bit easier.


Without further ado, I present


(imagine drum roll here)


Vicki Rocho's 
Top Ten Ways To Tell 
It's Time To Buy A New Bra
(all of which I've committed at one time or another)


  1. It used to be white but now passes for gun metal gray
  2. At least one of the under wires is missing
  3. One of the under wires will be missing because it's stabbing you in a very sensitive area
  4. The elastic is shot
  5. The padding is misshapen and lumpy
  6. The gouges it leaves when you take it off are more than a quarter inch deep
  7. It has more holes than any of your lace bras
  8. It's been washed so many times you can no longer read the label
  9. It's see through and it's not supposed to be
  10. You bought it after your daughter was born and now she's buying bras of her own

Oh, crap. I guess I better hop over to Victoria's Secret online and order a few new ones. Thanks for giving me the push! :D

Rachna Chhabria said...

Lol....laughed at your post.Thanks for making me laugh, smile and giggle on a monday evening. A good reminder for those who delay their lingerie shopping.

Sarah said...

Uh oh. I'm with Dianne. Feeling the urge to do a little shopping!

aspiring_x said...

ummm... yeah. need to go shopping as well.

Clarissa Draper said...

Oh, you're suppose to buy new bras? Now I need ten useful things to do with my training bras.

J. L. Jackson said...

Oops! Guilty of some too. Lol

Angela Felsted said...

You know it's time to replace your bra when the clasp in the middle brakes in the middle of an orchestra rehearsal and suddenly wish you were sitting last chair.

At least it wasn't a performance, right?

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol. I get so sad when one of my bras needs to be burried. Victoria Secret is good stuff and I've had some of the same since before my daughters were born. Its sentimental! lol

Theresa Milstein said...

The poking underwire is the WORST! I try to keep them until they cease being attractive to my husband. Usually.

Rhonda@laugh-quotes said...

Looks like I better go shopping tomorrow. - LOL - love the list. I found you as I am also doing the blogfest. I am your newest follower.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

*sneaks off to buy new bras (and underwear before Vicki creates that list, too)*

Lydia K said...

Oh, uh. Did you look in my underwear drawer?
Crap. Need to go shopping.

Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

Anita said...

LOL! Aren't those the best kinds of bras, though? It's hard to part ways w/a faithful old friend. SIGH. Thanks for the smiles!

cherie said...

I think I may have one of those buried deep in my drawer. LOL! Thanks for the giggles XD

Sophie Li said...

I've joined the 'Madness' and it feels rather nice! ;)

HAHAHAHA Thanks for the awesome Top 10! Too funny!

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

Let me offer a couple more.

The padding is MISSING on just one side (Why they make removable padding, I dunno?)

You bought it online (this is just a given)

The strap is shredding like ribbon

It's a maternity bra and you youngest is 5

In general I hate all and every bra I have ever owned. But I don't think I'd give up on the whole concept, I'm not that granola quite yet.
Thanks for the laughs!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Kelly said...

Ha! When I first started wearing a bra, I had to wear my sister's hand me downs. I hated it! And they were misshapen!

Madeleine said...

ROFL! I can identify with these :O)

Stephen Tremp said...

Bra jokes. I don't have a comeback for any of these. Guess I could come up with boxer short jokes.

Susan Fields said...

My sister-in-law once went through my bra drawer and got rid of about half of them that she couldn't believe I still owned. Why is it so hard to get rid of an old bra?

LTM said...

BAH!!!!

I HATE bra shopping, too. But all mine are beige, so I don't have to worry about the gray part~ :D

misshapen padding. That can pose a problem... :D

Thanks for playing!!! <3 <3

Damyanti said...

LOL...all women have experienced at least one of those points you make at least once in their lives!

Dawn Kurtagich said...

Ginger said...

lol...Been there, done that, still wont let go of said bra :)

A.L. Sonnichsen said...

LOL! Good ones, Vicki! You made me laugh. :)

My third daughter got into a bad habit of snapping and unsnapping my nursing bras (while she was nursing). She'd stretch them out horribly and then the snaps would break. And I lived in China where they don't sell nursing bras.... I had the bra blues, let me tell you!
