over-the-shouler boulder-holders

today i went shopping for a maternity bra. it was comparatively painless. i went with a friend who has real trouble finding maternity bras in her size (12E), so i felt a little guilty about how plentiful my own size was (16D).

week 17 feels way too soon to be buying such things, but my old ones were getting very uncomfortable. i really have gone up a whole cup size in the last three months.

to be on the safe side, i went cheap (just basic k-mart brands), and only bought a couple, given that i'm not sure how much bigger i'll get as i go along. but in case they stay roughly the size they are now, i made sure the ones i got had the appropriate hardware:

i consider this a job well done.

in case you're wondering about the title of this post, the video below should explain:
it's not possible for me to do any kind bra shopping without getting this song in my head. it must have been at least ten years since i've seen beaches, but i still know all the words.


  1. it is unacceptable that it's been 10 years since you've seen Beaches. I'll be over here sobbing about poor dead Hilary Whitney.

  2. oh and HOORAY! successful shopping!

  3. thank you so much for this :) Made me smile from ear to ear - haven't heard it in ages.
    also hurrah for comfortable supported boobies!
