Pushup Bras and Academics

Ready for some serious study in the school library. Pushup Bras and Academics.
Someone is ready for serious study in the school library.
At this point in my life, I am not interested in wearing tight, structured items of apparel, particularly when they contain a supportive wire in each cup.

Every pushup bra I’ve ever owned has sooner or later attempted to expel the half circle, metal struts which make the pushup possible. Once that happens the game is over.

No amount of hand stitching is going to prevent jabs in the armpit, and I confess I have had my share of bathroom bra removal.

One of the most ridiculously uncomfortable exams I took was the medical aptitude test (MCAT). Incredibly long and absolutely brutal, I took it a few months after my oldest kid was born.

Underwear meets physic. 
It was closing in on lunch time and I was hoping, along with trying to divine the correct responses to physics questions, that I could make it to the breast pump sitting in my car. If not, there was going to be some serious wardrobe malfunction requiring different apparel.

Fortunately, a change in shirt wasn’t necessary and by the end of the second half of the exam, I was in no mood to care what leaked where and how it appeared.

How to identify finals week.
When I was a freshman at the University of Utah, my mom was in her final year of law school. Each law student had a little carrel assigned to them in the law library and if I had time between classes I would walk over and study.

Mid-year, some students had strung a variety of clothes, including various undergarments, clothesline style from one end of the library ceiling to the other. The law library has fairly high ceilings with no ready access so they had to be pretty dedicated to the prank.
