So, as I mentioned on Friday, I'm in the middle of a shopping ban, which I broke, to buy this little dress.
|Basque dress, Myer $27|
I needed a pick me up (and yes, I do realize shopping is not the best thing for this), and decided there was no harm in looking, which became no harm in trying on, and it wasn't long before I had three little dresses from the 75% off all ready reduced prices rack over my arm and into the change rooms.
The first dress, I had picked up in a size too small, because they didn't have my size and sometimes with that brand the smaller size is great. I skinnied into it (it was a black and blue maxi with a big v-neckline) and couldn't zip it up over my bust. Sigh. It was discarded.
Then this one, which is from the petites range but still my size. I was in love with the ruffled neckline. And happy with the fit. Hmmm...against the ban.
The next dress was a little pink work number, but I didn't really like it, so that left me thinking.....maybe...if I put the maxi dress on with the zip done up, I can squidge one boob in at a time....it has been known to work...right??
And that's were things went horribly wrong! I got stuck, unable to reach the zip and free myself, unable to pop my boobs in where they were meant to be. ARGH! Thankfully, I stayed calm, edged away at the zip, and didn't need to beg some stranger for help. But it taught me a valuable lesson. If you have bigger boobs, sometimes, it just ain't gonna happen!
