In Praise of Black Bras

In Praise of Black Bras

What else do you need? Black bra; black denim; world domination!

White Bra? Honey, no!

What’s even the point of wearing a white bra? Or “nude”? Just some uncomfortable thing invisible under your blouse or dress? In the Physical World (PW) some women spend a lifetime searching for a bra that is comfortable and fits great. Even if you figure out what your true size is, the next label will make that size different! We avatars have it a bit easier. Don’t even get me started on the convenience of virtual laundry!

Black Bra, Honey go!

Unleash your inner beauty! Virtual beauty may be a bit easier to come by than beauty in the PW. Still, it takes time and money to transform yourself from “Count Chocula” or whatever the latest SL Starter Avatar is, to the awesomeness of you as you are today! Don’t hide it under boring clothes! Find one great black bra and radiate your energetic essence.

The Black Bra

One great black bra is all anyone needs!

And if one is good, 14 is even better!

Why? Because it’s SL! #moreIsNeverEnough

If you find yourself traversing a forest or bog to attend a Bal Masqué and encounter a mysterious figure in a black bra… it’s probably me.

Is fourteen black bras too many? I don’t think so.

  • Third Love suggests a minimum of 8
  • Coobie says a minimalist can get away with only 7 bras, but there are no minimalists in SL, are there?
  • Parade says you should have 11
  • Glamour says the average woman owns 16

16!? I’d better get shopping!

Glamour also says that the average PW woman spends about US$4,000 on bras in her lifetime. You do the math: that’s about L$1 million on bras!

Glamour also notes that a bra saved the life of a 57-year-old woman in Detroit!

The article doesn’t mention the bra’s color. I’m betting: black!
