Who needs underwire, anyway?

Exhibit A:


A week or so ago, I came home to my underwire sticking out of my bra about two inches. It was almost sticking out of the top of my shirt. Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration (how low would my shirt have been if it were… phew) but it does make me wonder if anyone else noticed because I sure didn’t. But then I didn’t want to just toss it out (and by “it” in this instance I mean the bra) so I kept wearing it with just the one underwire. Do I fix it? Do I toss it? Do I just take the underwire out of the other side and call it a day? Are my hoarding tendencies coming out in full force here? Possibly.

Anyway, so I’m also fighting the need that I have to save every little thing because maybe, just maybe, I’ll reuse or do something with it someday. Hmm… maybe this should have been titled “Confessions of a hoarder trying to simplify her life but she can’t because she feels the need to save underwire” Hmm…

To my defense, I have reused ripped pants, sheets and t-shirts, mesh fabric taken from a broken desk chair, a shower curtain, and an old flight suit. So there’s that. But I also have a growing box of old pieces of who knows what that may or may not be used ever taking over our guest room closet. What to do. What to do.

Do you have this problem? Or are you strong and able to say “toss it”!?

Thanks for stopping by to hear my mindless thoughts of the day :)

Until next time,




  1. I’m not really a hoarder but I would probably keep this! It looks useful!! Of course you could make a new bra with it and the other one :D
