Black Lace Bra Weakness

Why, why, why is the Betsey Johnson Women’s Rebel Rose Bump It Up Bra not made in sizes larger than a D cup?

Yes, I know I need another black lace bra like Superman needs Kryptonite — but come on, it’s black lace roses on my breasts and little tiny bows! How am I not supposed to want it?

I’m not not supposed to, that’s how.

But speaking of black lace bras and lingerie Kryptonite…

What is it about impossibly impractical black lace bras and how they make me go weak in the knees — and weak in the wallet — to the point that I could wear a different one a day for over a week (10 days, to be exact) and yet I still want more? (For example, the percentage of black bras on my wish list is insanely high — but don’t let that deter you from giving me black bras, like the Felina “Ria” Unlined Lace Demi Bra, as gifts!)

I’m not sure if black lace bras are my ultimate lingerie weakness… I’m apt to go drooling, swooning insane over most of the varying forms of lingerie. But black lacy bras seem to be the easiest lingerie urge to give in to… Is it the lower price (as compared to foundation garments, nighties etc.) or the smaller space they take up? Or is there some sort of chemical put in black lace — like the addictive chemicals tobacco companies put in cigarettes — which makes black lace bras like crack?

I can’t be the only one with this weakness, can I? You tell me. Leave comments — and hey, I’m even giving one of those poll thingies a try, so “vote” your answer if you’d like. (Poll is located at the top of the left-hand sidebar.)
