I purchased this bra to wear to a funeral.
Wait — stay with me.
I purchased it for the passing of my thirty-seventh year, also known as my birthday.
I was kind of emotional that day, to be completely honest. After taking stock of my life and my accomplishments the past year, I just felt like I should’ve done more, been better, seen more things…
I don’t know… Maybe I shouldn’t have watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi so many times this year.
The day before my bday, I got myself to Nordstrom to look for a pair of birthday shoes (it was during the tail end their semi-annual shoe sale), but for the life of me, I couldn’t find the perfect pair.
Their inventory had already been picked over by early risers and seasoned shopping vultures, and what remained were the leftover, forgotten bones of unwanted heels withering in the wasteland of sad temporary shelving…
Dejected and disappointed, I lumbered over to the lingerie department, hoping to find a cute bra to wear on the first day of my thirty-eighth year, one that would make me feel girlie and special.
That’s when I discovered the $28 Kensie ‘Jamie’ Lace Trim Bralette [INSERT IMAGE OF ME STANDING ON A TABLE AND DOING THE RUNNING MAN].
I liked it so much that I walked out of the store with two of them, and I haven’t ruled out going back for more.
Of all the modern, girlie inventions/conveniences, bralettes are easily top 10 for me. Maybe even top five.
While offering less support than underwire bras, they sure can be comfy and cute.
They’re great when all I want to do is couch surf or bum around town in flip-flops. Less binding and restrictive than many other bras, they still offer enough support to keep the girls from flapping all over the place.
And these lace-trimmed ones from Kensie are fab! They’re cute, stretchy, and I love wearing them around the house or out and about as a layering piece; I think the lace looks adorable under low-cut tanks and tees.

Oh, and have I mentioned how comfy they are? The material feels soft, and the lace isn’t itchy. There also aren’t any scratchy tags to deal with.
