i'm not going to get into bra politics and normative image portrayal or any of the feminist reasoning behind not wearing bras. i hear you. i admit ive bought into the ideal that i should wear a bra so my boobies look "right". i know "the man" has beaten me into submission, and the media has warped my sense of what is normal. i also know this - i buy cheap bras. a $12 bra from target does baaasically the exact same thing a $60 bra from victoria's secret does. just without the angel "fashion" [sexual exploitation] show and all that shite.
i suffer from constant-bra-strap-falling syndrome. it plagues ladies you know, and ladies you dont. and maybe even some cross dressing gentlemen you dont know. but i finally have bested it. not with the weird bra strap converters you can buy at h&m or old navy. those are a nice idea but generally... not very functional. and not with the straight-jacket-esque racer-back hooks already built-into my bras. the straps are just not friggin long enough and i feel like my bra is about to put me in a stranglehold from behind. but with the power of scissors and sewing!
no, i just like the alliteration. the "holy shit that implement for thread ripping out is sharp as shit and now im bleeding" name that i refer to these items as, is a bit cumbersome. but i picked out the stitches holding down my bra straps at the back, and moved each side about 3/4" toward the hooks.
just make sure you havent twisted the bra strap when you reattach it. its harder to pick out your own slightly non-uniform stitches and backstitches than it is factory [slave sweatshop] stitching.
guhh. lots of rants about all the anger.
