Fashion and Fun after Fifty

You think that at my age I would have been able to find the perfect bra, after all I’ve been wearing one for over 40 years. I remember my first lacy training bra, it itched to no end, but I was happy because I was wearing a bra. After training the tata’s I moved on to the real deal, a big girl’s bra, with hooks and no itchy lace. Despite that I’ve never been able to find one that fits in all areas…the front, the back, and the sides. I want one that doesn’t pinch or poke, one that has straps that won’t slide down my arm, oh, and it has to look sexy and be easy to wash.

Am I asking for too much?

Just the other day, I looked in the mirror and could have sworn that I was looking at my grandmother! The bra I had on didn’t have any support, the fabric was frayed and I was sagging – remind you of anyone?

You know thrifty me, I’ve gone the cheap route when purchasing bras, but I’ve also gone the expensive route getting fitted and everything but after awhile they don’t fit right. I am now on a mission to find the perfect bra before my 53rd birthday, and I’m starting online at

I checked out the website and have chosen the Silkee Short Minimizer because it’s advertised as having a smooth design, so there will be no unsightly lines, makes you look slimmer – a definite plus AND straps that will never fall down – ding…ding…ding, ladies

Silkee Short Minimizer I think we have a winner!

What about you, do you have the perfect fitting bra?




  • I’m not ready to spend a ton of money on bras. Maybe once I get to my goal weight I will. For now I just buy them at Walmart or Kmart.

  • All bras are not created equal and what is a good fit or me may not be a good for you, but I am a fan of Olga bras. I cannot do without underwire because my titties are hell bent on going south and I do not like a wide strap. My advice is try before you buy and make sure you have room to tighten when they stretch out.

  • I knew it, everyone woman does have this problem. I’m right there with you, I can never find the perfect fitting bra that is also comfortable, and after breastfeeding I had to trade in my favorite bras. So now I’m on the hunt for one that I like and is comfy to use. Thank you for sharing this and I’m glad you found a winner.

    I just find good bras so expensive! Also, I’m right in the middle of losing weight. I think when I get to my target weight (it should take about 6 months) I’ll go get properly measured and buy good bras.

I love reading your comments!
