A while back I was bitchin' 'n' moanin' because my favourite, so-comfy-you-forget-you're-wearing-a-bra,
But now, thanks to those perennial Jockey sales I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I took the plunge with something new and, after a couple of weeks of test-driving, I can safely say that it's even BETTER than my beloved Warner 7283.
'tis Jockey's 4711 (and I had the sense to go for the hot pink right off); has all the features I love ... no padding, seamless, minimal structural engineering, doesn't mold me into the unnatural fashionable shape of the year, and has no stupid 3-D doodads fastened to the front (okay, one tiny bow, but it's FLAT!; has anybody EVER discovered WHY bra manufacturers perpetually feel the need to sabotage a made-to-be-invisible-under-tshirts garment by decorating it with pearls, bows, giant rhinestones, or even honkin' big brooches?). And the microfibre fabric makes me think of that bit in the original Hitchhiker's about the spaceship that's so frictionless you can't feel it ... this stuff's the same (one has to keep fighting the urge to peek down one's neckline to make sure the bra is still there). Comfy, comfy, COMFY!!!!
Best of all, it's NEW to Jockey's lineup, so hopefully will be around long enough for me to add a few more to my wardrobe. :-)
