Bras and loathing in Newmarket


I am posting this comic at the risk of over-sharing, but let me assure you that I never draw myself accurately – it’s all ‘artist’s impression’ around here.  Talking of bra shopping, graphic novelist Vanessa Davis has the opposite problem from me, as she so delightfully illustrates in the Tablet.

    I have the problem of being both thin and flabby – like a goat overfed then partially starved to losen its flesh for ease of butchering, or maybe I made that goat bit up.

    I could do with the keys off a couple of corned beef tins to ….never mind…

    And if you bought your bras where I think you did, because I got mine there and the assistant wouldn’t stop asking me if I was ok, then you have my utter sympathy and a bonus bravo for making it out of there without saying something that would really make us blush 🙂

    I am going to be late for work because I have been catching up on your recent posts (and laughing silently so as not to wake the sleeping child)… let’s just say I can relate to all of them (esp this one, being too old for Frankie and the cafe incidents). And LOVED the party one. Don’t you just want to punch people sometimes? Happy New Year and good luck with the rest of the hols…

    I have European breasts, there are further apart, or maybe my ribcage is wider, anyway all the bras here make them look like eyes, too close together.

    Love the post. You might actually be healthier if you just don’t wear a bra at all.

    Hahaha, love Ange’s comment – maybe that explains why some men talk to mine 🙂 They’re just being polite and keeping eye contact with my European peepers.
