A staple of every gal’s wardrobe.

Has probably turned a weird shade of fleshy grey and is no doubt a bit misshapen.

The kind of bra that’s trying so hard to be ‘sexy’ that you feel embarrassed to leave it dry on a clothes horse lest any of your housemates see it.

If only all bras were like this.
