OMG, I loved it! The whole non-fitting to the Will and Grace episode! I LOVED that one! And I'd say besides the triumph of actually leaving VS with a pink bag & a non-lotion/perfume purchase, was the time you got to spend shopping with DD! Thanks for the laughs.

I need a new bra and I am SCARED to go to VS!

Your sweet DD is right - you got gypped.

I've had my VS experiences be hit or miss like that. Sometimes TOO helpful, sometimes perfectly helpful, sometimes they won't even say "hi" let alone measure. And to make matters worse, every VS bra I have ever owned started to fall apart within six months. They are too expensive to have to be replacing them that often. Let me buy more because I want more, not because my already over-priced bras are in tatters...

So when I get back to being able to shop there I know I won't be going to VS. We have a local shop in my area that charges about the same for actual quality bras. And the owner DOES leave you feeling spoiled and like the best customer ever (even if you only buy one). And while the shop doesn't have the best hours ever, she is there to ensure that what you get is what she's willing to have her name on. All custom made and all that...she could help me now - but I don't want to pay for what I don't want to use very much longer...

I do like the VS catalogs and online site, though. They do have some cute clothes...just can't wait to get back there!

Oh - and I love the pics. Those are priceless!

BG. I know the feeling. I can't find one that fits and is comfortable. My problem is that they don't make a 42 long.
First time at your blog. Enjoyed it muchly!!

Thanks gals...Yeah, we had a blast...good thing there was no help in the fitting room, we were laughing the whole time at where my boob leakage would pop out.

Judy '42 long' ROTFLMAO!

I usually ONLY wear VS bras, but I've been finding really decent ones at Target. Gilligan and O'Malley. They are under $20, super cute and good quality. Matching panties and everything to go with them. Fun.

Your story was absolutely hilarious!! But that does stink getting crappy service in a store that should make you feel really good. Hopefully you will find another one that will treat you better. Cute drawings! Did you do them?

Band Groupie said...

BB- Thanks for the tips!

Natalia- Yep, my sticky note doodles.

Natalia said...

Wow! You are an artist!!! That is impressive.

I love those Target ones too (also Gillian & Omalley). They are pretty good quality, comfortable, good fit, and not too pricey. I am a little smaller now and I find that a C cup in the juniors dept (Kohl's Candies) are a better fit...some crazy fun styles too, that I'm probably too old to wear but who cares???

Jen said...

hillarious!

Thanks for the battery tip on my ipod, will def. look into ordering one. For now, I finally got it to reset but the battery doesn't want to hold a charge so I think that will be my next step... on to session 3 of week one of the Couch to 5k program tomorrow- with tunes! yay!

Awww that sucks you had a sucky experience but at least you made the best out of it, and a highly amusing blog as well! You're DD sounds so sweet and lucky! I've never had a fitting at VS but I have in dept stores and they are super nice and occompany you in the dressing room. Not a plus to me, I don't enjoy people inside my "bubble". This reminds me, I need another fitting soon being 50 lbs down. I'm lucky I'm still fitting nicely into my "old" bras!
