Comments: Pretty pink hell.

Ohhhhhhh you just gave me a great idea. I think I need to take my hubby to VS. They just increased the size of the store in our mall... maybe they'll have more than 3 types for someone my size. Don't ask. Since it's a bigger store, they have to have a better selection for us large women! I can't wait to see my hubby's face!

well, I won't go in there either. And I'm female.

It makes me feel dirty.

That, and I can get the SAME EXACT bra (that fits better, BTW. Like VW, I am at the top of their size spectrum so even if it is nominally my size, it sometimes doesn't fit....) in another store for half the price plus they usually have a buy one get the second half off sale. Two bras: $39.

Oh Contagion Contagion....this much embarrassment from a man with "that nightstand"...I doubt it.

However it does remind me of some great stories of when I worked at "Uptown Undies" in Fayetteville North Carolina........

I need to post some of these storeis......

The mall does suck I agree.

Ok, gratuitous swooning . . . done.

I only buy from VS too. And, they now carry my size in my fav. style and I have every color! Hooray!

Oh, but my husband prefers Fredricks of Hollywood, go figure, must be all that pink ;)

I'll bet you've got some crazy stories from FayetteNam....

OHHHHH!! since we got to see your wife in the"cheese bra", I do wish you would at least take a photo of her in her nice bra......and post it.

I am sureI am not the only curious one, especially since she nneded a larger bra than normal....

VS and I are very happy together ;-) What's funny is that all of the VS catalogs that get delivered to this house are sent to the Hubster. He does all (and I mean *ALL*) of the catalog ordering. If I see something I like, I just leave the catalog open on the counter, and maybe circle the item. And he doesn't mind being dragged into the store when I need to try things on. Then again, he selects almost all of the outfits I wear to special occasions as well ...

Dude, I feel soooo sorry for you. I know the level of Hell you describe. I would rather endure having my nipples scrubbed with sandpaper while chewing on tin foil and watching the Steelers lose yet another game to the damned Patriots! The only remedy for that torture is to go to your favorite bar and drink SEVERAL pints of your your favorite stout. Good luck, and may the gods of Valhalla keep you in their grace.

I think that AWTM has a great idea... :)

You know, you could have stayed in the truck. Surely she would have cracked the windows for you...

AWTM and T1G: No.

Ogre: No, I had to give her my oppinion, to which she didn't listen.

Take my husband bra shopping? Ummm... no ain't gonna happen. Because you see - when it comes to being comfortable - the cutesy bras are just that - cutesy NOT comfortable. Therefore - I do my own shopping...

As for waiting in the store - if you must go again... give her your opinion and then when she goes to try them on - tell her you'll wait out in the mall. LOL - serves you right for not thinking of it and standing in the store. I see men in VS all the time - most come with wives or girlfriends... I ignore them - they ignore me - we're all happy. *grin*

Damn man, you whine like a little girl! It's the mall, and for christ sakes it isn't even a big scary mall, it has what, 20 stores tops? (Not including food or drink places) Sheesh...I almost have enough to say here to write my own post about you're incessant whining! (grin) (chuckle)

You've probably met a guy who liked to wear bras and panties. I know of one whom you'd never suspect...

I make sure the girlfriends are aware that the only way I'll go into a women's clothing store with them is if they're willing to model stuff of my choosing for me. This usually works so it doesn't bother me that much :P
Heck, I keep telling Candy we're going to road trip to Frederick's of Hollywood (nearest one is about 40 mins from here) one of these weekends...
BTW... $50 for A BRA!!?! DAMN MAN!

And why does everybody get to see the cheese bra pic but me? :(

Posted by S at October 7, 2005 08:10 AM

I must be the only woman in America that hates malls more than anything else I can think of.

That's why I've shopped online or by catalog for years! My christmas shopping is usally done by mid October. No way in hell I'm stepping a foot in a mall or electronics store after mid november.

And I have ordered the VS crap, and like your wife discovered the underwires eventually come out and stab you as a result of mediocre quality. not so with other bras that I've ordered from other manufacturers.
