TELL ME SOMETHING DIRTY
As far as underwear goes, I’ve tried almost everything, from La Perla – three G-strings and two bras – to women'secret, passing through Oysho, Calvin Klein and Intimissimi. I think the best bras on the market are Oysho, though when it comes to G-strings, French knickers and pyjamas I prefer to vary a bit and buy whatever I fancy. I bought one by this brand yesterday because my mother gave me a strapless dress for my birthday. I needed a bra without straps so I could wear it, the one I had from women'secret was already far too small (I bought it at the beginning of last year, when I was a 36). You can’t imagine the hassle I had to go through, I traipsed all over the city to find one that would fit. My usual size is a 42 and I’ve only just turned fifteen, for some brands I find I have to ask for a 44. My back is small, but my breasts are large for someone of my age. That means whenever I get a bra that’s my size, it’s always very wide, but the cup fits perfectly.
I found what I needed in Oysho for only thirteen euros. I’m really happy about it. The cup holds my breast and the wires stay in place. The fabric is very soft and it looks great from behind. Including this one, I now have six bras by this brand. The strapless one, one you tie around your neck so your back can be bare, a white one with lace around the edges, a black push-up and one from the collection ‘Love is’. The sixth is the first bra I owned, a plain blue one, which is a 34. I don’t wear it any more, but keep it as a memory. I’m amazed how my breasts have grown since then.
