I don’t like to boycott business, but lately some of my once favorite places started doing or saying really ridiculous crap and I just can’t support that.
One of the businesses that I may have to boycott is Victoria’s Secret. I have bought every single bra that I have worn for at least the last 15 years at this store. I like the products, their return policy is fantastic and when they have a sale…they really have a sale.
However, I have to draw the line with this:
This is the new Push -Up Sports Bra. Why, why, why would this be necessary? According to Vicki, “The Showtime gives you great lift and cleavage with a push-up halter shape for sexy style, even when you’re working out.” If you are more concerned with having cleavage when you are working out, then you’re doing it wrong.
As a woman who is reliant upon a good, sturdy sports bra during a workout, I can say without a doubt that this is not for anyone with boobs. Secondly, unless you are an actual Victoria’s Secret model, most women prefer to wear more than just a sports bra when working out. So having some cleavage under your shirt is kind of a falling on blind eyes, isn’t it?
I’m all for wearing some cute workout gear. Sometimes that’s the extra motivation to get out and do something, but let’s keep the boobs squished to our bodies like they should be. Afterall, you don’t want to end up with two oranges in a pair of pantyhose, do you?
Sigh. SO not a sports bra. Obviously made for the AA crowd that 1.needs cleavage and 2.doesn’t really need a bra in the first place. I hate that women are caught in the crossfire of so many conflicting messages about ourselves and our bodies.
PS: Love the orange-and-pantyhose image. In a horrible sort of way.
Exactly – a sports bra serves a purpose for those that need one. As my mom always used to say, “It’s not a fashion show.”
la la la la la la la tmi tmi 😛
…and for the record, I didn’t see *any* cleavage there… so… fail!
