Wellingborough n

The sort of tedious person who takes pride in never seeing the doctor or being ill, and who infects everyone with the filthy cold they claim not to have.

I expected this one to exist, but could not find any description similar.

Brasher Falls n.

The feeling of relief, when after a long and arduous day, one has divested oneself of ones brassiere.

[Not a single reaction of assent? Of outrage for a non bra-wearing person to propose such a Liff about a highly personal item of clothing? Of incomprehension? Of dissent? I'm perplexed! A little research on twitter (seeking the inspiration for this Liff) reveals it a common phenomenon, rated almost as high as good sex itself.]

One of my fleeting appearances here, from places paased through 'twixt here and Hereford.

Mansell Lacey. What F1 drivers wear underneath the flameproof stuff.

Byford. The best way to get to, or from, Dagenham.

I could not possibly comment.

I don't mind wearing a bra, tbh. I find it uncomfortable to go about without one, but mine are unusually sensitive and large because of breastfeeding. I gather it is a fairly common phenomenon, but possibly it's more common among people who haven't been properly fitted.

I have never been properly fitted for a bra.

And neither have rather a lot of people who do actually wear one on a regular basis. This is not the only reason that many women find their bras uncomfortable, but it's certainly one of the more important reasons.

Personally, I prefer not to wear a bra. I am sufficiently boringly conventional that I do wear one for work, but away from work I go without when I can.

Women's magazines occasionally run articles advocating this choice that I make, and claiming all sorts of aesthetic and emotional benefits from it. I don't go that far, but I do know that a bra feels less comfortable the longer you wear it.

I could take or leave bras between the time I left school (and therefore didn't have to undress in front of absolutely awful people every week) and when I got to about the second trimester in my first pregnancy. Since I've got bigger and more sensitive, I prefer to wear one, and I prefer to get it fitted (my size is uncommon enough that I can't usually find cheap supermarket bras that fit anyway).

Wondering, after parents' evening, if the teacher has ever met your child.

<E> There's already a word for this; plus it wasn't funny except for the place name itself. I'll try and find a better definition.

Special occaision to be marked with a Liff.

Cusop The relief you feel when, after four years and two house moves, you find that you still have every fitting you need to reassemble all your bookcases.
