The underwire is a thin, semi-circular strip of rigid material such as metal or plastic fitted inside the cloth along the bottom and sides of the bra cup, from Wikipedia
I can't totally shame the underwire though, I'm sure some ladies swear by it, and I've found a couple underwire "bright spots", too.
For example, I like is Quinn Cummings blog, The QC Report, which was made into a book, Notes from the Underwire (one I do not have yet, by the way). Quinn played the precocious little girl in the movie, The Goodbye Girl, the original one with Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason....one of my all time favorite movies.
Nah, I don't think I'll miss it THAT much!
Anything make you feel like a rebel this week? Or, maybe you just can't live without your underwire? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
