Let us just say that we HATE the bra-and-underwear sections at most major department stores. The fluorescent lighting, the indifferent sales staff with their cheesy tape measures and prodding fingers, the racks and racks of schlock crammed together, with a few finer brands possibly tucked in between. And don't even tell us that what's-her-name's SECRET is a solution. Ugh. More schlock, overpriced and cheaply made, and the staff there is so young they should be selling lollipops, not lingerie.

That said; our butts and busts need coverage. Our solution: Beauty & Attitude in North Berkeley.
