A few weeks ago I went to a newly opened Jockey store in the suburbs.
As I walked in I immediately noticed these and said loudly
“LOOK! It’s like Select-A-Boob!”
I was sort of transfixed on these cups of various sizes and this whole new way of fitting a bra.
Especially if this new way meant I didn’t have another woman who might be, I don’t know, younger and perkier to fit me.
Fast forward to a conference I went to this past weekend where every attendee received a set of these in their bag.
Now has her own Select-A-Boob system!
We all know that most of us are A) Wearing the wrong size bra and B) Wearing the wrong size bra because we don’t want another woman who might be younger and perkier dealing with the aftermath of having children that is our boobs.
So imagine my surprise when I saw that most of the select a boobs were being left behind!
Did they not know what they were for?
Could they already be wearing the right sized bras?
Did they just not know how handy they would come in hand for snack time?
To just stick a succulent in it?
Maybe you have a new mom friend.
This is your chance for some real talk.
Maybe that mom plans on Breastfeeding.
“Breast is Best”
I actually wish I had more! I could make little Halloween Boob Ghosts! Or maybe a light fixture like those mason jar ones? How about using them as my kitchen back splash…….
If you want to read what they’re really for, then read this.
Do I even have to say that this is in no way a sponsored post? I fully expect the Jockey people to contact me to take it down at any moment…..OR ask me to do a DIY segment on their site, because obviously I’m a DIYBoobs sort of person
This is fantastic. I certainly hope that Jockey contacts you and gushes about how you are their new spokesperson. Fantastic. Still laughing.
Why yes, yes they do look like that. Thanks, kids.
omg you are killing me with the new reality pic. Holy. Crap. These are all brilliant though. Brilliant.
This is excellent! I plan to do an art project, too, or use them in the kitchen. Those women who left them behind are missing out.
LOLOLOLOL. this is why I love you.
LOLOLOL. I love the Boob Mobile. Just fabulous!
Hey! we were there too – and couldn’t resist having a little fun with said booby-swag!!! ha!
Check it out if you have the time… xx, the secret mothers.
My kids were finding new uses last night as bowls and cups with their babies but they will love the snack time use!
I’m so glad I’m not the only one who used them for snacks. (Or, well, kept them.) But the succulent has to be my fave.
I haven’t even gotten mine out of the suitcase yet, much less gotten so creative. This is awesome!
Damn, you’re fast. You need to sell those succulents on Etsy. People would be all over that shit.
I love that you are recycling these things.
I bet Crate and Barrel is onto your idea in 3,2,1…….
I love this (and you) so much.
This & you are amazing. I love the dip cups!
Imma pin these.
So much is right about this post. I’m kind of sad I left mine behind. I really want to craft with them now.
You will be happy to know that they are top rack dishwasher safe…(I’m dead serious)
Food service, perfect! I think I need a few of the #10’s to keep out on the patio and some #4’s for football season. Oh, oh! Taco Bar! The possibilities are endless.
I’ve been wondering what y’all were playing around with. :)
had you known then, you could have collected all the left behind boob molds for future crafting.
on another note – i waste a lot of food. do people really eat baby carrots when they look like that? have I been wasting pounds of baby carrots because i thought they need to stay wet? i’m weird. sorry.
Love this! If I needed a reason to feel bad about NOT being at the conference? Select-a-boob it is! I need those to hold my guac! Who wants to share theirs?
Great minds think alike! I thought about using them for food serving bowls too. Esp. snacks & pudding. :)
This is Pinterest worthy. I’ll be pinning for sure! ;P And I left mine behind, I should have totally used them for after school snack distribution! Damn me!!
I just peed myself a little. Thank you for that. Love this post. HATE That we missed one another. BOO! Next year!
This is hilarious! I may have taken a picture of myself wearing the #10 as a hat.
Your creativity never stops surprising me!
Hummus holders. *just ask vikki reich**
I just can’t see these catching on. I mean as a bra measuring system. The craft ideas are brilliant.
I was not one of those women who left hers behind. After you told me how awesome Jockey bras fit, I kept those suckers. I am TOTALLY going to be measuring and ordering because you are right…when the teeny tiny 20-something measured me in VS after having Charlie…and I was still wearing panel maternity pants…i died a little inside. And I’m not sure the bras I let her talk me into were even the best for me.
And I also now have carrot and dip bowls for when I am done measuring my bewbs. So there’s that.
My daughter already snatched them from me. Her words: “I’m going to make something out of these.”
I die. Seriously.
LOVE. (Note that I read it anyway even though you didn’t mention you-know-what.)
I especially love the one w/ the succulent in it.
best boob post ever
