I feel your pain, OP. Two days ago, my strapless bra decided it wanted to unsnap during my first day of college classes, in the middle of the lecture. It was terrible.
I'm genuinely curious: does this happen to bras that are the proper size? Cuz when I'm at Walmart, I sometimes see obese monsters who are obviously wearing bras too small for them; it's easy for me to imagine those bras snapping them running off to puke and kill themselves.
25 - yes, it can happen. I've had it happen once with a bra I had bought the week before - apparently it wasn't properly stitched where it closes (i got a refund). I've also heard it can happen to older bras, and judging by OP's financial situation I guess the latter might be the case here.
25- It can happen with any bra, but it's more common with improperly fit or worn out ones. Most women don't realize their bras aren't the right size for them. OP- I don't believe you can't afford a bra. You have a job (even if it's a low-pay). Wal-Mart sells bras for around $10. Sports bras cost even less (like 3 for $14). Sacrifice a little and pick one up. It won't be pretty or fancy, but it'll hold your boobs in.
Yeah even with a low income job she should still afford a $10 bra. She probably didn't live within her means for too long and is over whelmed by possibly debt or over due bills and such. Hell does she not have any friends that have bras they no longer need? Even value village sells bra (yeah it's gross but who cares you need a bra... without staples...)
Sometimes, you just don't have enough money to scrape together for anything other than rent, gas, and food. Sometimes you have to drop one of those things off the list too, and it's usually food. You clearly have never lived paycheck to paycheck. I completely believe she can't afford one. Take it from someone who has been there.
Well if I needed a pair of underwear and the lowest was 15 dollars and I was living pay check to pay check I would cut out some food. You can live weeks without food and I've survived days without food anyways. Anyone can, but the real question is, do they have the motivation to do it. Well in a situation like that, they sure as hell should.
I agree, I have a very comfortable bra I got for $8 at JC Penney. I typically pay more than that for a single article of clothing. You can find comfortable and reasonably priced bras in stores, you just have to look. Ross and Marshall's are great places to shop for someone on a very limited budget
It is possible, it has happened to people at the weirdest of times. I had an aged bra that was a little worn snap on me while I was at school. It snapped in the front ... which was weird, but it was because I grew out of the bra, and it couldn't hold my new cup size ... it does get weird but it does happen
This is so sad. When a woman is so broke she has to think twice about buying a bra, you know the economy is fucked!
Shouldn't you have enough money to buy a new bra after finishing your shift?
Each paycheck dedicate some money toward a new bra until you can afford one.
Learn how to sew? I know that it is a lost art for young women these days.
Amen! My sewing isn't perfect, but my grandmother made sure I learned how to do basic repairs, & I always keep one of those little travel sewing kits with me. My boss popped a button off his dress shirt at work, & he and all my co workers were staring at me like I was friggin Houdini while I fixed it for him. ( he put on a tee shirt he had in his office)
Ross, Marshall's, Raves, 5/7/9, any discount store at the mall sells bras for $4. If that's still too much money, then fuck your life, indeed!
