Here are the positives and negatives I’ve come up with for whether to buy new bras to fit my recent weight gain:

+ New bras are more comfortable, which means being more productive.

– New bras are more comfortable, which means forgetting that I need to lose weight.

+ My sisters love my hand-me-downs whether I’m going up and down the scale.

– New bras are expensive.

+ New bras are expensive but foundational to everything else.

+ It’s time to buy new bras anyway. Over six months have passed since my last purchase, and it should take at least six months to lose all the weight after a new purchase.

You can tell where I’m leaning, can’t you? In fact, I purchased 1 black and 2 beige Chantelles last Thursday at Bra Smyth. But there’s still time for me to return them if you want to “weigh in” (ha ha!).
