Yesterday I started looking on Asos for some new bras – because yes, I’m the kind of gal who likes to throw caution to the wind and buy the most difficult and fiddly things online, ensuring that I spent way too much time in my local Post Office than is necessary or, even, healthy. Yes, I know, I spend an unhealthy time shopping online: what of it?!

In any case, my demands, when looking for a bra, are few: it should look good and, simultaneously, as if it won’t be the most uncomfortable thing I’ve ever suggested my boobs to. (No, that would be a mammogram. Too much information? What! I like to err on the side of caution.) In any case, I found two gorgeous bras on Asos and before I knew what hit me I had clicked into them and was just about to hit the “buy” button (I’m a really, really easy sell) when, what’s that? Nursing bras?! Oh, hell no!

Have you seen a nicer bra of late? I love this – sweet, demure, yet sexy! And oh, look, easy access . . . oh. I’m really not in the nursing bra market, honestly, but I just love the design of this one. Sob.

Ditto this one – what is it that makes nursing bras so damn attractive to me?! Cue inappropriate jokes . . . In anyways, this is good news for you if you just happen to be nursing or, you know, planning on nursing in the immediate future. Me, on the other hand? No intention of nursing. Just FYI. None.
