The Precious

I gave The Precious a test drive tonight seeing as I was going out and wanted to look my best.
I wore the outfit I wore to the New Year party when we were on the boat, though I have to admit, I looked thinner tonight than I do here!
Tonight was the first time I’ve worn a bra since my surgery and wearing my falsie AKA The Precious balanced up the sides.
The new pre-Humphrey bras I found were OK, but don’t have enough dividing material between the cups, so I resorted to my usual sports bra and that was OK.
It felt weird though. I still have the ‘football’ under my arm, and wearing the bra emphasises that but it should disperse eventually and wasn’t noticeable under my top.
Even weirder was the sound of hydraulics every time I leaned forward so I am going to have to invest in some better fitting bras afterall as there isn’t enough support in any of mine to keep The Precious properly in place. Also, designs have pockets inside for prosthetics which should keep the vacuum noises at bay! It wasn’t uncomfortable though, kept a good shape and looked natural.
Everyone commented on how nice I looked and said it was a good fit. I felt great.
My plan had been that should it become uncomfortable or keep shifting, I’d go to the ladies and remove it as well as my bra, but I didn’t have to.

I’m happy to continue as I have been though. I’m not self conscious or embarrassed and firmly believe comfort is the order of the day. However, it is nice to have the option.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
