Easter ‘make a day’ – Day Three: over the shoulder boulder holder

I have to tell you from the outset that I suffer from a fair quantity of boobage.

Whilst this is ok and sometimes even attractive when well strapped and supported, in a standard swimming costume it simply takes on a life of its own.

The reason I am sharing this somewhat personal information is that I recently went back to swimming lengths as a form of exercise. I hadn’t swum for some time and needed a new cossie, which I bought at a well known sports discount store, as I didn’t have £50+ to spend on one made with proper bra sizes. The down side of this purchase was the generic fit – well and good in all aspects bar the bust.

I have, incidentally and it turns out serendipitously, been tidying the room that purports to be my bedroom. I have my suspicions that it has been replaced by the cupboard under the stairs while I slept, it’s so full of STUFF. However, in amongst the piles I found an old moulded-cup bra – a little soft and saggy, a little too well worn – and I decided to marry it to my cossie!

My lovely daughter pinned me into the two items and having managed to get it off again without spearing myself, I have sewn one to the other. It’s not the sexiest cossie in the world, but now at least I can tell my bosom from my waistline, which is always a plus…and I’m looking forward to trying it out at the pool this week.
