bras Bras BRAS

I dreamed...

Maidenform Bra 8

Creepy Maidenform ad from 1957

I Dreamed I Posed For A Fashion Ad In My Maidenform Bra

I Dreamed I Took The Bull By The Horns In My Maidenform Bra

1956 - I Dreamed I Was Twins In My Maidenform Bra

I Dreamed I Was a Social Butterfly in My Maidenform Bra

I Dreamed I Rode a Gondola In My Maidenform Bra


I dreamed I had a stylish carriage

I Dreamed I Bowled Them Over


Am I the only one that has a drawer full of bras and yet keeps buying MORE? I love getting new bras!  I bought five more over the weekend (Hell, they were on sale! They were pretty!  They were SEXY!  How could I resist?!?!?!). When I got home after my bra-buying spree, I took it upon myself to count how many bras I actually have. Grand total: 49. INSANITY.

HUGE P.S.  If you are not sure you are wearing the right sized bra, check out this Wizard of Bras tutorial/video. It will help you! :]

49 bras?????? holy shit, dude. that's pretty intense. i have like, 7. maybe.

hope505 said...

*hahaHAA!!* so funny

brassieres = 49
breasts = 2

Are those all vintage ads? They're cool..! An interesting series, even for modern times! "I dreamed.." & the lovely retro art... but I see the bras themselves are all the pointy kind. *heehee!

& I only have like 5 bras, because I am loyal to one style...god help me if they stop making it.

49?!?!? good lawd that's a lot of booby coverage!!

i have like 20 and only wear 5. i suck at buying bras. truth be told, only 2 fit right. what's your brasierre shopping strategy? do tell!!

also this post has me singing the bette midler song "otto titsling" from the movie beaches. oddly enough, i know every word.

Caroline said...

OMG...49 bras! LOL. How can one resist pretty bras on sale???

Lorena said...

I actually have two similar bras to the ones on the Maidenform ads and they are quite comfy.
I am going to VA in a few weeks and my plans include: bra shopppppping !!
Ok, now - 49 bras ? that seems like a lot for someone with only 2 breasts, that is unless there is something you are keeping from us...

Lara said...

It's not crazy! My size is hard to find (especially in something pretty) so when I see one I grab it. I've probably got about 25 now.

I hate bras- don't wear them if I don't have to- Living in the Caribbean jaded me as to when it is appropriate to not wear them. I usually take them off as soon as I get in the door- really- like shoes.

Heidi said...

Love those ads! I probably have 20 or more, and I don't wear most of them. My problem is, unless an underwire is exposed I cannot throw them away! I keep buying plunge bras even though I hate having to readjust my boobs every 10 minutes. Then there are a couple that look like crap under clothes. So I might wear half of them. And if they were cheaper, I'd probably have 49 too!

blueviolet said...

I'm the opposite. I wear them until I look like a street urchin. Even then, I'll get a couple more years out of them.

Dancing Branflake said...

49? What?!!!!!

I have 5. Do sports bras count? Then I have 20.

Jen said...

I have 4 special, pretty, sexy ones that went into storage as I NEVER wear them and I have 6 ugly, comfortable bras that are worn daily and are taken off the second I get home. I hate bras~

nicole said...

ha! i'm right there with you! half of mine are neon yellow!!

Morgan said...

I'm not a bra person.
wait.. let me clarify... I wear them, just don't buy a lot of them. That would cut into my booze money. :)

girlunwinding said...

are your 49 bras pointy like the ones in the photos? if not, you may be looking at 50! ;-)

I have old skanky bras with underwire that stabs me, ones that have no support and ones that leave deep welts on my back. I think I need to retire a few and go bra shopping. Then when I reach for one of my 49 back t-shirts I'll feel extra sexy!

kimbirdy said...

49? that's so many!! i own maybe a dozen, but i actually never Ever wear a bra. i'm a little hippy at heart.

Carey Brown Strombotne said...

i dreamed i had normal tits...
in my maidenform bra.
haha, 49? yea, that's insanity!

E said...

Wait, what? Olden-days ladies must have been smarter than me because some of these are going way over my head. The bull, however, speaks to me.

libbeh said...

Wowzas!!!!!!!!! 49? That makes my <10 bras look pathetic.. but then again, I'm not really a "bra" gal as I find them too restricting. Even sports bras are annoying to wear. When I'm at home, I let the girls breathe and hang as they please, hahahaha!

I think my 1st bra had a similar cone shape to it, and was a push-up (unpadded, much to my dismay) because I wanted my sprouting girls to look BIG like my friend Brandy's. Her boobs grew out in the 3rd grade!!!!!!! No joke!

the nyanzi report said...

cool ads.

Elle said...

Love these vintage ads! XD I've been buying a load of bras recently as well. Just can't help it!

Heff said...

I let my woman pick out AS MANY as she wants, because everytime she tries one on, I GET TO SEE KNOCKERZ !

Panty Buns said...

OMG, what a fabulous collection of ads from the old Maidenform "Dream" campaigns! They're fabulous!

LindseyD said...

HA! I love this post (love you're entire blog in fact). I don't even want to count my bras. I'm certain I'm right up there with you and there's really no good excuse for it. I *think* it must be because we're constantly looking for the perfect bra and that definition changes by day. On a hot day, we want next to nothing and comfortable. On a hot date, we want a bra that is a work of architectural magnificence. Anyway, keep up the good blogging!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Big bra spender, you! I'm the opposite... I SHOULD/WOULD/DREAM of wearing pretty bras, but in the end I wear my good old sports bras... They are so much more comfortable. Just hope I never have to undress!

Chocolate & Chants said...

That's a lot of bras! At the moment I have 15. About 7 of them are in heavy rotation. The ones I use a lot get thrown away and replaced after a year.

Kitty Stampede said...

BAHAHA @ Hef.

You have some majorly spoiled TATAS! wowza. I have maybe 7-10 pair. and I only wear like 3 of them. I find it really hard to find ones that fit right and don't look super fake and bulky on me..cause I am on the smaller side of the spectrum. I love bras, but I think I need to find a better place to shop for them. This makes me want to bra shop hard...I think I will later...

十十f十 said...

indeed you spoil your buddies much! haha. i'm into comfort so i buy bras that some wear to sleep in. i can never understand how anyone would wear a bra to bed. can you?

Marian said...

I'm pretty sure I'd injure myself with a bra like that...poke my eye out or something

Haute World said...

I have a lot of bras, but I'm pretty sure I don't have 49. Wowza, that's a lot! And I keep on wearing the same 5 over and over, so a lot of the ones I got were definitely impulse purchases. Love these vintage ads by the way. The style is so very late 80s Madonna.

Claire Kiefer said...

Goodness gracious alive! 49 bras! I wish I liked shopping for bras . . . not my favorite activity. I have many more than I actually wear (there are only 3 in rotation). Where do you buy yours? I find Wacoal ones fit me the best. But they're pricey.

Alisa said...

49, that is crazy!

I managed a lingerie store in college and worked at Victoria's Secret after college. I used to have a drawer full. But now I have 5, and that is including my strapless, that I never wear. :)

TK Kerouac said...

can these bras get any uglier

I rarely wear bras now, I wear the all in one shapewear camisoles which smooth you out.
little bit of a security blanket type of thing.
