Bra shopping. Again. The girls need help. Both of the dresses I purchased on ebay will only work with the proper bra. I'm desperate.
When I went bra shopping with friend Teresa a few months back, I learned that I am a 32DD. It was hard enough to find 34DD's before I was enlightened about my true size. Now, it's just ridiculous.
A few ladies in my life have tried to console me by saying sweet, positive things like, "That sounds ideal...to have a little body and big boobs." Nice try. But wrong. It's awful.
Perhaps I wouldn't mind so much if I were properly balanced. I'm not. I have a short torso and narrow shoulders. If I were to wear a "regular" bra, I would look all boob from the waist up. Not acceptable.
2 years ago I found minimizer bras at Target in size 34DD on clearance (light from heaven, angels singing). They were ugly then and they're even uglier now, but they get the job done right. The only problem is the seams. I don't like visible seams on any undergarments, it limits what can be worn over, and I don't like limitations. So I search. And search. And search for the one bra that will hold 'em in, hold 'em up, and look smoooooth. Does it exist? Some say yes, but I have my doubts. I fear that I'm asking too much from a simple bra. Oh that the fabric wouldn't pull and oxfords would button properly!
You better believe that if these girls don't shrink after children (fingers crossed), that I'll be buyin' me some different ones. They'll be a sensible C and they will be beautifully perky.
Can you buy bras in cute colors and patterns with darling matching panties? Do your shirts button without gaping? If so, be ye grateful. Tis a luxury some will never experience.
