Of Men & Underwears

Last weekend an extremely random thought came into my head. The more I kept thinking about it the more sense it kept making and I couldn’t wait to share it with all of you. So here goes…

A good husband is like a good bra.     

That’s it! That is the brilliant random idea that flashed in my mind like a neon sign last Sunday.  Don’t think its true?  Think I’ve lost it completely? Don’t know what to think of it?… Read on to learn more about this yet another obscure analogy of mine.

1. Fitting Is Everything: A good bra is meant to accentuate a woman’s assets and hide her flaws (even though we’re flawless, most of the time at least). Similarly, a good husband is one who highlights his wife’s talents and conceals her shortcomings.  A good bra displays a woman’s well rounded curves, just like a good husband who can’t stop praising his wife’s well rounded personality (or bottom for that matter).

2. The Comfort Factor: A good bra is one that doesn’t restrict movement, is comfortable to wear and leaves room for growth. Similarly a good husband is one that supports his wife and encourages her to grow as a person without any restrictions.  Also, ever notice  how a good bra does not require constant adjusting of its straps? Likewise, a good husband too loves his wife for who she is without demanding her to make too many adjustments in her life post marriage.

3. The “Feel Good” Factor:  That elated feeling us ladies get when we finally manage to find the perfect bra, is kind of similar to the euphoric feeling we get when we finally know that he is the one. Also, wearing a pretty bra makes us feel feminine and lifts us up (pun intended of course). Similarly, a good husband also makes his wife feel attractive and uplifts her spirits every time she’s down.

4. Different Strokes For Different Folks: There can never be one “right” bra or husband to cater to all of  woman kind. It is essential to recognize that different women have different needs when it comes to bras and hubbies. For example, a younger girl might want  a cheap bra with diamante studded straps that looks good on a night out  just like how she’d want a dishy looking man as her arm candy for a few fun dates. ‘Long lasting’ might be the last thing on her mind while picking both her bra or man.  However, a more mature woman would want a fuss-free and a comfortable bra that sees her through a busy day just like how she’d want to be with a reliable man who sticks by her side through thick and thin. And even though it may be difficult for us women to put into words just what kind of a bra or a man we’re looking for…in our heart of hearts we know what we’re after and do not settle for anything short of it.

5. Easier Said Than Done: In matters of bras and husbands, it is way too difficult to identify and find ‘the one’. It can take quite a few trials and errors before one finds the perfect bra or the perfect man. Also, whilst most stores allow you to exchange your purchases, they tend to be strict when it comes to exchanging lingerie. Bras like husbands are intimate choices and it isn’t easy to swap either of them for something else once they’ve been chosen.  Therefore,  it is of utmost importance that we take our time, identify our needs, list out our options and choose wisely.

Every time I manage to find the perfect bra, I make sure to stock up on a couple of them just in case the brand discontinues its production. And, while I certainly wouldn’t recommend investing/stocking up on a couple of good husbands, I would definitely advise holding on *tightly* to your man once you’ve found your perfect fit.

– To my darling husband Bhavin, on our 1st Wedding Anniversary today,  I thank you for being my perfect bra! xo.

this was really fun to read! i have to agree, finding the right bra is amazing! at first, i used to buy primark ones just cos i could afford them, but they were really awfully fitted and very uncomfortable so i switched to topshop sale bras and they are really amazing!

congrats on your anniversarg ;D

Some times you have to take what you can find on sale. Then you find out he/it is better than the expensive one.

Persis,
I know that people comment that they are happy they find someone's blog. But in this case, I REALLY am happy to have found yours. Not only because I had tons of fun reading the good husband good bra comparison, but because you seem to write from your heart. I am so glad you brought up World vision. I will be checking it out. That little boy you are sponsoring is just darling. You are a wonderful soul. I am placing your other site's button on my blog. I'll be back often.

Ahah what a lovely compliment for your husband! Hahaha. Oh dear, though, being a gay man, I wonder what the similar analogy for me is... A good husband is like a good... jockstrap? Ew..

Cashon&Co said...

i'm so glad you came by my blog the other day and left a comment. It is so good to discover /meet you. your blog is awesome! I had to comment on this one before i moved on to the next post though because I thought it was so unique and witty and true!
yes, when you're young you want the gorgeous sexy bra... it might be a little uncomfortable but it looks good. When you're older, you go for what works best : it has to be cotton, comfortable and bring out your best "assets." The exact same goes for men, right? The Younger You: the men you pick look good but hurt you... Older and Wiser You: You find a man that has more than good looks, he lasts and makes you feel good. I think you said it better than me!!! you made a good analogy! off to go read more!

Ingrid said...

hullo! thanks so much for the comment on my blog!

i can tell you've thought long and hard about this ~ and you're so right! i love your analogies; they're so perfect. and, though i'm late, i hope you had a wonderful anniversary and wish you many more decades of happiness.

Susan Deborah said...

Loved the analogy and if you are one of those who tries bras after bras to get the exact fit, then you are like me.

Ah, the time I have changing bra after bra. Unfortunately one cannot try husbands after husbands till the right one comes by! Good bras are relatively easy to come by than husbands, I reckon. What say? Bras can be discarded too!

Ah, I can go on and on. The topic is such. Thanks for this brilliantly witty read.

Joy always,
Susan
