It didn't feel quite right...



Note to Self: When buying a bra at Target with the cool gift card you won on a contest over at Melissa’s, make sure you check the tag.


Yeah. I’m a 49-year-old woman who’s been wearing a nursing bra for two days.



And trust me: I’m not nursing.

WhisperingWriter said...

Haha.

Oops!

I was so glad to throw those things out when I was done nursing my kids.

smiles, bee
xoxoxoxoxoxxoxoxo

i can see myself doing this too. ps

Kathleen said...

Yeah, but was it comfortable?

Pop and Ice said...

You must be well-endowed to fill out a nursing bra. I salute you on this accomplishment (I never fit into mine and gave up the breastfeeding as well).

LPC said...

Just think of it as an air conditioned bra...

Midlife Jobhunter said...

I hate it when you have to check the tag.

Sue said...

I looked at the time and you are on the East coast, I am on the West coast, so that damn nursing bra must be bugging the shit out of you to keep you up so late, are you still wearing it? Thanks to you, I won't be able to go to sleep soon because I'm laughing my ass off!! I never buy bras at Target, not sure why, maybe it just doesn't seem like a "bra store". So, even though I can't go to sleep now because I'm laughing, it was worth it!!

LegalMist said...

My husband always thought the nursing bras were cool. He didn't want me to get rid of them when I was done nursing. Maybe Tightwad might like it? Just sayin'...

tera said...

I would die! But it's you so it's funny :)

I obviously have not been paying attention - love the new look! Better than the nursing bra, at any rate. hahahahahaha!

GypsyFox said...

LOL..maybe milk will come out?

Zip n Tizzy said...

Watch out.
Next time you hear a baby cry it's going to make your milk come in.

flutter said...

that's pretty hot, right there

Captain Dumbass said...

Um... I got nothin.

How's the garden?

Desert Songbird said...

Ruh-roh.

Gayle said...

You are hilarious.

That sounds like something I would do.

Vodka Logic said...

What a great chuckle..thanks.

ladytruth said...

Hehehe! After reading this I was the one needing a martini to just calm down my giggling :) You just made my day! Funny stuff ;)

Jan said...

ROFLMAO!

That SO sounds like something I'd do.

Well, if they sold nursing bras in the short, fat girl section.

Rick Daley said...

Would you believe I'm a 37 year old man who's been wearing a tampon for the past week?

NOTE: I'm not. I just had to try to one-up you.

Tammy Howard said...

I bought a maternity skirt at Old Navy. My Old Navy doesn't even have a maternity department, so it must have been a return from a catalog or something.

Beth said...

Uh oh! I would blame the people at Target.

Michel said...

hahahah! THat is hilarious. Plus side: you have built in pockets!

mo.stoneskin said...

That'll teach you. I'd always put you down as a 'tag reader' myself but I suppose I can't be always right.

Mrs. D said...

Bwahahahaha!!! That's hilarious :-)

Yvonne said...

That is funny. Can't believe you actually wore it and didn't just march that baby right back for a refund. haha

Mrs. E said...

Now that is funny stuff! I want to see the people's faces at Target when you take it back!!

Scope said...

Got milk? ;-)

blueviolet said...

If you didn't notice it for two days....just carry on.

CSquaredPlus3 said...

That's a riot! Your blog design looks great, btw.

Once my mom wore her underwear wrong on an airplane. She had a leg part around her waist and the waist part around one of her legs. She kept fidgeting and couldn't figure out why she was so uncomfortable.

Christy said...

That is so funny! I once went to work with a dryer sheet inside my pants on my bum. No wonder I was feeling itchy back there! ha!

Melinda said...

If it fits and feels good...then why not. Easy access for the hubs. haha.

The Peach Tart said...

I bet that's really sexy

Bobby G said...

LMAO! one time I got size 4-8 socks! I wear 11's! I used them anyways and they fuckin exploded after like 2 washes lol!!! Thats the male equivalent.

only a movie said...

they have a great return policy.
sounds like something I would do...!

Deb Thaxton said...

-->That made me LAUGH and (not so) secretly feel relieved that I didn't do the same.

buffalodick said...

I would think the "access ports" would have tipped you off... Reminds me, I have to pick up some milk at the store today...

Maureen at IslandRoar said...

Aw, did it bring back memories??
Just be creative; use it to give the hubbie a fun-filled peep show.

SkylersDad said...

Details please, pop open flap or no pop open flap?

Not The Rockefellers said...

OMG, Rick Daley made me piss my
Underliner/Depends!

Yes, the nursing bra,Hubby wanted to know why Victoria's Secret didn't make them as they "make perfect sense"...even for the non-lactating.

On a bad laundry day I must 'fess up...I'll don one.

Peace - Rene

Keyona said...

Nice! I learned the hard way that the hanger size may not match the tag size. LOL!

darsden said...

OMG hilarious...I ask you like I ask Susan..when was the last time your eyes were check...REally... maybe want to wear those purdy glasses they don't do any good if you don't use them.. ;-)

Under the Influence said...

Oh my. That will have me chuckling ALL DAY!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

AHAHAHAHA! I love it...but it took you 2 days to notice? Then I'd say enjoy the comfort. ;)

Julie B. said...

LMAO...maybe it was divine intervention....a toy for your husband perhaps? Here I am so eager to get OUT of nursing bras and you're buying them just because you think they're pretty :)

R.J. said...

You've been discovered, and I'm a new fan! I love the humor and the "Tightwad" name will keep me laughing all day. My favorite Rita Rudner quote: “I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.”

The Half Assed Housewife said...

Hey nothing wrong with easy access!

Scobberlotcher said...

So...when I write about this in my next novel, what would you like your character to be named? Ha Ha! No, I wouldn't do that. Trust me. :)

Ice Queen said...

HAHAHA! YOU WOULD!

That one girl said...

Wait? What is wrong with that? Doesn't your husband appreciate the easy access???

Julia said...

But if you get really hot...like hot flash hot...you could open the windows on your bra for a little breeze.

Twenty Four At Heart said...

At least you have air conditioning for The Girls this summer!

Stereos and Souffles said...

OMG! You are kidding! That's okay, a friend of mine showed up for a girls dinner last week wearing a nursing bra. She hasn't breast fed in 6 months.

Moonlight Hollow Musings said...

Well, flip those flaps open and cool those puppies off! It's not a nursing bra...it's an air-conditioned bra!

Malisa

Angie Ledbetter said...

If ya didn't get the matching expand-o-panties, they might still be on sale! haaaaaaaaaa

Julie said...

Look on the bright side, after one too many martinis you don't even have to get undressed to flash your man the goods. Just pop a flap and get movin and shakin.

*Akilah Sakai* said...

You're such a badass! You did it for Tightwad so he can "open your flaps." ;D

I made this error with a couple maternity shirts before. They tie in the back like some regular shirts did!

Sara said...

Hey, is it comfortable? Does it support you in your everyday endeavors? I say keep it and wear it proudly!

Kathy B! said...

I bet your hubby will LOVE that.

Tracey - Just Another Mommy Blog said...

Oh, I love you.

Nursing bras allow easy access...

Sandee said...

Bwahahahahahaha. You crack me the heck up. You really do. Bwhahahahahahaha.

Have a terrific day. :)

Joanna Jenkins said...

Just when you thought it was safe to get up and put your bra on.....
:-)

The Seeker said...

Once I found my mom's nursing bra -- and I thought it was that way for uhhh.... bedroom purposes between my parents. I was very disgusted.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Those flaps can be used for other purposes....

Madtexter said...

Just cut off the flaps and tell everyone it's a Jean-Paul Gaultier bra!

CDB said...

Awesome!! This makes it much easier for Tightwad to get a cheap glimpse.. if you have a wardrobe malfunction and the snap comes unsnapped at an inappropriate time.

for a different kind of girl said...

Hey! That little flap can double as air conditioning on these hot summer days!

Snow White said...

Maybe you should become a mid-wife and take up feeding other peoples children... your summer is free, right?

Snow White said...

not a mid-wife... a wet nurse. you know what i meant!

Alix said...

Jesus VM, your posts make me cry. Cry in a good way. Nursing bra.... LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!

Kathy's Klothesline said...

But, did it fit? I haven't done that, but I am willing to try to get a bra that will fit right. I have worn some really cute tops from Target's clearance rack and learned later (upon further inspection) that they were maternity........ I kept them. So maybe now those that saw me are wondering where my new baby is. Oh well.

laughingwolf said...

wrong profession... shudda bin a NURSE to wear a nursing bra! ;) lol

reinventingamy said...

best post i've read all day!

Ms Picket To You said...

THAT. IS. AWESOME.

apathy lounge said...

This is my first genuine laugh of the day. Thank you!!

Joanie said...

Heh. I continued to wear my nursing bras for a while after I quit nursing (lo those many years ago) because I was too poor to buy new ones.

I dunno. I kinda suspect I'd know if one of my new ones was a nurser. Then again, maybe not.

Melissa B. said...

OMG! Ella Una was just looking over my shoulder as I was reading this, and we both dropped DEAD laughing at the same time. LMAO, and she did, too...thanks for the Linky Love!

The Mind of a Mom said...

I bet hubby was thinking sweet she is going to be able to flash me some boob ~ score!

Anna See said...

WOW! Has your milk let down yet?????

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

If the shoe/bra fits...

Rena said...

LMAO!

A Lawyer Mom's Musings said...

Reminds me of a bunch of sunglasses I bought at Steinmart a few years ago.

Got them home and they all had built-in reading glasses. I was all WTF? Now I need them desperately and can't find a one.

Though your problem won't be needing them again later. Then again, you never can tell . . .

Fragrant Liar said...

How did you find out? A little game of peek-a-boo with the hubs?

PictureGirl said...

How funny!

Suzy said...

That explains so much about you.

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

You are cracking me up.

At least you're not "leaking"...

Feener said...

thanks for putting a smile on my cranky ass self

Dana's Brain said...

Just tell Tightwad you got them for him - easy access!

Dana's Brain said...

Oo - I kind of can't believe I just wrote that!

Cassie said...

Oh my that made me laugh so hard. :o)

Jessica said...

people write lol all the time but i actually loled! ha!

Pastor Sharon said...

Bet your significant other, likes it!

AS Amber said...

BAAAAAAA!!!!! Did you think the hooks in front were for Tightwad to have easier access??

WeaselMomma said...

Thanks for making me laugh.

Midwest Mommy said...

LMAO! I do have to say my nursing bras were some of my most comfortable bras.

Whiney Momma said...

Hysterical! You know, aside from the "nursing" part...they do provide easy access.

June Freaking Cleaver said...

Great for when you enter your next wet T-shirt contest, and don't want "the girls" to point southward!

Grumpy, M.D. said...

That's hysterical. Hope you saved that receipt.

Mrs. K said...

can you even return bras? too funny
