I have been doing a lot of “blog surfing” lately and came across one that I decided to bookmark and visit often!  It is called “40 Days Of, The Banana Republic of Blogs.”  You’ll have to check out her site to read what the name is all about!

Anyway, the author, Nichole, recently ran a post that I thought was so funny.  I think because it sounds like something that would happen to “yours truly.”  I decided to reach out to her and ask if we could run it on TMoM today.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and it gives you a good laugh!

How to Look Like A Space Alien with …
4 Boobs!

Sorry to men who are brave enough to read my blog. You may want to look away.

Here’s how you do it: In a burst of misguided vanity, you decide to order two of the Spanx, front close bras called Bra-llelujah just before your annual Christmas vacation. You (me) are fat, and it said bras promise not to show back fat. You get the bras (1 nude and 1 black) the day before you leave. You try them on and they feel great. No back fat! You wear the nude one on the plane and pack the black one. When you reach into the overhead compartment to place your bag, you end up looking like this:


Beyond the ability to entertain my friends and relatives, I found the Spanx Bra-llelujah, front close bra to be a massive disappointment. And an expensive mistake. To those of you who may think I just bought the wrong size, I have a disclosure to make. I worked for nearly five years as a bra fitter. I know how to measure myself, and do so often.

In conclusion, I have this to say: Who cares if your back looks all nice and smooth, if your front has two extra boobs?! Back to the drawing board, Spanx!
