She didn’t need that bra anyway.

Like most models these days she doesn’t have ant tits to hold it up with.

Billl, as Mumzi used to say: “If it’s more than a mouthful, it’s wasted!”

Is that a dress with built in gloves ? I’d quite like that.

Alien invasion must be happening… I bet they’d love our catwalks 😀

sure, more than a mouthful/handful is a waste

but what it’s less than that…

They can’t be too big that’s for sure, but there has to be enough there to hold onto.

I mean they can’t be jubblies if there is nothing to jubble!

A young woman I once dated had a T-shirt I’ll never forget. It said: “It’s not the size of the wave. It’s the motion of the ocean.”

If her head didn’t make it into the photo, I am guessing it’s because it makes the references to her bosom pointless? Now, whether that is good or bad, up to you to decide, my friends!

Doc…. really? Care to enlighten us about its in-depth meaning… I mean, I did get it a little… but really.. I would like to know if what I am thinking matches what you are saying…

At 73 she’s probably struggling to reach round to do the bra up at the back. I imagine she’s started on the operation where you do the clasp at the front, twist the whole thing round, then pull the straps up but dementia has set it. That could also explain why she’s wearing her slip under her bra and her dress under her slip.

I think, if memory serves (which it very rarely does) it it was Kriss Kross. And they made ya jump jump. Along with the Mac Daddy made ya jump jump. And the Daddy Mac made ya jump jump.

They almost made me jump jump…off a bridge.
