#9 Interesting findings at the CVS

Friday, September 14, 2018

When picking up my prescription at CVS, I like to browse around the store and see what's new.

On one rack, I saw something unique, that I had not seen before.
They were pairs of 'daisies' that one could place on the bosoms for what I think they referred to as 'modesty.'

When I was teaching - especially at the community college, I was especially aware of that.
Under no conditions did I want my students to be able to see anything more than just the outline or roundness of my figure. I changed to wearing heavier bras with several layers to be sure that was the case.

A lot of young women don't wear the same kinds of underwear these days, though. Some of them don't wear bras at all. Some of them wear undershirts. And I'm sure that some of them don't care about what shows through their clothing.
However, for those who do care, it's a good idea to be able to cover up those parts that could draw someone's unwanted attention.

In addition to the daisy coverups, they had silicone 'supports' that could be put on the skin beneath the bosom to lend some support and lift - instead of wearing a bra.
They looked a lot like the small Dr Scholls gel arch supports that I tape into my shoes to prevent the return of plantar's fasciitis.
Some of them can replace a bra completely.

And just now, on the internet, I saw photos of bras that stick on, having no backs or straps.

There is a new world of underwear out there now -- and it looks very interesting.

Who knows, maybe one day my granddaughter will laugh at the bras we have always worn-- just as.we feel about the old fashioned girdles or crinolines. (Remember them?)

    Pasties at CVS! The idea of anything glued to my body sounds awful.

    LOL. Today was my hubby's birthday and he enjoyed the bosom products. Not that I will be using any of them. Even in my rural area I have seen some wild things relating to bras or lack there of. One day my teenage son and I were headed into Schnucks and this elderly woman with huge unrestrained tatas was headed out of the store and her hooters were gyrating and swinging wildly. I turned around, looked at my son, and made a face and he burst out laughing. He said it was like watching 2 wolverines fight in a pillowcase. LOL. He still does an impression of it and it cracks us all up. What was this old lady thinking? It frightens me to ponder it.
