31 Things That Feel Just As Awesome As Taking Your Bra Off

31 Things That Feel Just As Awesome As Taking Your Bra Off

This post is brought to you by Southern Comfort

ou know when you get home at the end of a big day, unsnap your bra, slide in to your comfy pants and allow yourself to stop sucking your stomach in? That’s my most favourite part of the day.

You may remember a while ago I was in Sydney with a whole bunch of comedians shooting some footage for a campaign I wasn’t allowed to tell you about?

So I basically spent the day making Southern Comfort cocktails with some of the funniest people in Australia. It was hilarious. We spent the day talking about the most comfortable things in the world. Like cutting your toe nails after you’ve let them grow too long and or that amazing feeling of relief you get after you’ve vomited. I also totally volunteered to be an extra for the movie version of the commercial and these poor actors had to kiss each other for about 2 hours until they got the right shot. They had no skin left on their faces by the time we wrapped. I quite liked my day on set. It was very entertaining.

I found a list in my phone of all the super comfortable moments my comedian mates (how cool do I sound when I say that?) shared with me that day for the As Comfortable As You Are shoot. Here are 31 things that feel just as awesome as taking your bra off…

• Peeing after holding it for a really long time

• Having a shower when you come home from the beach

• Letting rip a fart you’ve been holding in after your visitors leave

• Finally digging that splinter out of your finger

• The first warm and tingly sip of your favourite beverage on a Friday afternoon

• Taking your hair out after it’s been in a ponytail tail all day

• Getting into bed on fresh sheet day

• Taking off your high heels after you’ve been dancing in them all night

• Having a bath when you’re really, really cold

• When you open a bag of lollies and there are heaps of your favourite flavour and hardly any of your least favourite flavour

• When a bus load of kids waves at you wave back and it’s the best thing in the world

• The first sip of a a perfect takeaway coffee

• Peeling a sticker off something you just bought in one perfect movement without ripping it

• Putting on hand cream when your hands are super dry

• Popping bubble wrap

• Hugging someone you love who haven’t seen for ages

• Copping a whiff of that sweet new born baby smell

• Peeling an orange in one long continuous strip

• Finally untangling a thing that’s really badly tangled

• Getting your inbox to zero

• Open up a brand new jar of Nutella and digging your knife into it

• Waking up late and then realising it’s Sunday and you don’t have any where to go

• Crushing hollow easter eggs with your bare hands

• Wiping off your make up at the end of the day

• Clean pyjamas

• Finding $20 in your jacket pocket from last winter

• Waking up without a hangover when you thoroughly deserve one

• Finally getting off a plane after a long haul flight

• Face planting on to the couch after a long day at work

• Having someone else scratch your back

• Getting your braces off

So tell me… what are your #SoComfortable moments? Being totally naked? Wearing tracksuit pants? Going totally commando? If you’re keen to share your comfy moment, whack it up in instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #socomfortable so I can check it out.

    I totally love this! And yes to every single one! The peeing and the ponytail ones are right up there on my list of faves!

      Sometimes I hold my pee on purpose just to experience the awesomeness. It’s that good.

  2. Clean sheets, washing dirty hair, peeing and lying on the couch after coming from work ?
    Looking forward to the feeling of my braces coming off.

      Oh my goodness! It’s the best! There’s nothing in the world like getting braces off your teeth. It’s such a special moment because it will probably only happen once. 🙂

    Cuddling my dogs, when I feel bad. They never fail to gaze adoringly at me – best feeling ever.xx

      Oh man I want a dog so badly! We live in a tiny flat so we can’t do it but I’d love to.

    A huge yes to everything you have listed here. Isn’t it amazing how the simple pleasures that pass us by can really make us happy. I just love getting into bed at the end of the day.

      I got in to my own bed for the first time in a month last night and it was total bliss. I slept like a baby. It was brilliant.

      Oh lord yes! Taking off high heels and wearing flats – best ever!

    All of the above! And, as the title of this post made me laugh so deliciously, I’ll add, an unexpected laugh when you’re feeling gloomy.

    Clean sheets AND freshly shaved legs. The best.

      Oh my god – that is actually the best. I love it.

    Clean sheets, popping bubble wrap, I love that taking off the bra feeling sooo much that if I’m home for the day it doesn’t even go on! Peeling a sticker without ripping oh please tell me how… & I’ve got something that desperately needs untangling at the moment but I just can’t do it, I try to chip away everyday but get so frustrated so I know once it’s done it will be the best feeling ever!!

      Yes! Peeling a sticker off in one go! I love that. I love untangling stuff – If I lived with you I’d untangle the shit out of it!

    A full tank of petrol and money in your wallet. The possibilities are endless.

      Oh I wish I had a weekend off to do this! 🙂

    Cracking open a new bottle/tube of moisturiser/foundation/anything really! Seeing the money ping into your account on payday. Getting under your blankets when it’s cold and rainy outside.

    I must be some sort of weirdo, but I don’t like taking off my bra at the end of the day. In fact, I’ll lounge around in either a sports bra or a cami-bra. I sleep in a cami-bra. I hate that loose and floppy feeling.

    A headbutt from my cats. Taking my bra AND underwear off after work. Finding money in a parking lot and no one around to see you pick it up. Throwing stuff away and then cleaning off the dusty shelf it was on.

  13. Angelina 3 years ago

    Oh my gosh, yes. The holding in you’re pee after a long time is amazing! My favorite one (that wasn’t mentioned on this list) is taking off all of my clothes, and sleeping totally naked. It’s the best thing after a long day!
