Having big boobs more than limits my wardrobe, backless is out of the question. If I have on something strapless you should know I have on two, maybe three bras, I’ve never worn halter a top and bikinis are nearly impossible to find. Back fat, sunken cups, ripping material, boobies runneth over, busted straps, you name it I’ve experienced it.
After my weight loss, the Twins when from 38FFF to a 32EE and my girls needed a lift.
I went to Ross, to pick out a new bra that I thought fit and it ending up being a total disaster.
While at work, on a video conference call one boob fell through the bottom of my lacy new bra. I didn’t notice until 90% of my co-workers, including the ones on the video conference, started staring at me. After making an excellent point and was feeling extra sassy. I nonchalantly looked down and realized I had one perky boob and one deflated one. I was mortified.
If you know me you know, I don’t stay embarrassed long. I announced I had a wardrobe malfunction, got up and walked to the bathroom where I let out a roaring laugh so loud they could hear me two offices away. I returned and made a few jokes to brightened the mood.
As soon as the call was over, I ran two blocks to Victoria Secrets and asked them to fit me for a bra. Well, Vicky doesn’t carry my size, so I headed to Nordstroms. There the lady measured me and brought me ten different bras to try on. We finally got it right on the 9th try.
I like my boobs to sit up and look like they have some life in them and she found a bra that did just that. The only problem was that the bra was 90 bucks. I was planning on getting three bras for that price and started to back out of the sale. Then I remembered that saying a good bra can make you look 10 pounds lighter. I stopped hesitating and plopped down my plastic. It felt surreal paying $180 plus tax for two bras, little did I know these bras were worth their weight in gold.
When I was inspired by ThirdLove to write about my relationship with bras I jumped at the chance to air my grievances. ThirdLove gets it, they’ve addressed the awkward process of finding the perfect fit.
