Amen to Lilit Marcus over at The Gloss for her takedown of the padded bra. As she notes:
Stuffing our bras reminds us of middle school, but this time someone else does the stuffing for you. The bras in my size come with everything from a gentle layer to a layer cake’s thickness of padding. When I ask specifically for something unpadded, I am handed a sports bra.
Seriously, the only other way to get a bra without an extra cup size thrown in is to shell out major dollars for filmy French lingerie. Which I’m supportive of, mind you.
Really, I’m thinking of you guys and how led on you must feel when that girl with the Pamela Anderson-esque figure turns out to be a gravity-challenged C cup. But maybe you’re just psyched to see breasts.
