Bra Purses: The Next Trend

CAUTION! This is a GIRL post! If you are a male, this post may make you roll your eyes.

I don't know that this is necessarily a new trend, but it was a new concept for me. Some years back I saw Jamie Lee Curtis interviewed on a talk show. During the course of the interview, she was asked something about her purse. She explained that she doesn't really carry a purse, she just uses her bra. She then proceeded to pull NUMEROUS things from her bra! Seriously, I don't quite know how it all fit in there! But you know what? There have been times that I have remembered that show, and it helped me in a situation when I didn't have a pocket or a purse to carry my keys and ID.

I have to admit that to see someone else use their bra as a purse is a little gross to me. When I was a teenager, I worked in a department store in Kentucky. One day this rather large woman came through my line wearing a tube top. First of all, I think tube tops should be outlawed. They are just plain tacky. But to use it as a purse is even more tacky. When it came time to pay, she reached down in to her tube top and fished for awhile until she found the money. Then she hands me these rather sweaty bills. Gross......

I don't think I will give up my purse altogether, I mean, it isn't really socially exceptable to go bra diving in public. But I have to admit, in a pinch it's a great place to store something. Come on, fess up, how many of you use your bra for an extra pocket or purse?

I actually don't do this, but I have used my baby wrap (the only way I've stayed sane with 3 small children at the grocery store!). The part that ties around my waist has held my phone/keys/wallet many times already!

I've used my bra before to hold my gun while walking or running outside. lol :) (I hate feeling helpless, that's why I carry one in those situations) I put it under my arm, on the side of my body and the strap holds it in place and you can't tell it's there. I've been guilty of carrying money, too. lol

I've carried money (bills), car keys, lip gloss, grocery lists, and my cell phone in my bra. (Not all at the same time) :0)B

I have to tell you I have never used my bra to put anything in. And now I want to go wash my hands when I touch money. :0)

I've had your sweaty tube top story happen to me when I was working at a party supply store. Ew is all I can say to someone who hands another person sweaty money and things there's nothing wrong with it!

I've done that before when my hands were full with something else and I needed a place to stick my keys or cell phone for a minute. As for the sweaty bills I think what is grosser is when a man hands you sweaty bills from his wallet (happened several times as a teller), butt sweat is the worst!

Sometimes I put my cell phone under my strap under my arm when I'm carrying two little girls into the house and every time I think: this is so trashy. :)
