I bought this lace bra a little over 3 years ago at a Topshop in London for less than 10 quid and never thought it would last me so long. I remember when I initially bought it, I thought lace was made to fall apart after one wash in the washer so I have to always hand wash.
Hand washing my garments seemed like such a hassle to me so I usually hand wash these things on the "hand wash" cycle in my washer. What can I say, I'm lazy. I later discovered garment bags made to wash delicates so I bought one for my bras and another for panties. I definitely recommend investing in these not only to save your delicates but also to separate these things easily. Nothings more embarrassing than that moment you realized you're walking around with a thong that static-clung to my right butt cheek. I mean your right butt cheek, not mine.
In any case, back to my story. I just realized that I need to go get measured for a decent bra because I'm tired of walking around with terrible posture, with awful support BUT I'm scared shitless because I've never been measured and I hear it's a very personal thing. Anyone with me on this? It's like that yearly visit to your gynecologist; you both don't want to be there and yet you spend the next 5-10min making small talk and avoiding eye contact.
