I HATE bras. Hate them! The first chance I get I do the whip your bra off thing under my shirt. At any time, you may walk in my house and see a bra flung somewhere. So I look for comfort. But if I don’t wear an underwire, my boobs look like a flat pool noodle is around me.
I haven’t been properly fitted for a bra since I put on 50 pounds. I was a 36 B, at my last fitting (that woman scarred me, she came into the dressing room and manhandled my boobies while stuffing me into a bra) and all I have done is increase the back size since. I am now a 40 B. Or so I thought.
I have bought new bras lately that fit pretty well. So the other day, I popped in a store to get some clothes for the kids and grabbed another one of the bras I recently bought and liked, and checked out. On my way out, I saw there was a bra fitting event going on right then. So I turned around and went for it.
After waiting for about 10 minutes in the bra section, I kept stroking this one bra. STROKING! This thing was so smooth and silky feeling I actually wanted to put it on my body. They only had a 40 C but I grabbed while I was waiting.
So I went in for the fitting. The lady measures me up and says I’m a 42 FF!!!! WHAT.THE.FUCK.??????????? A 42 FF? Does that exist? My boobs aren’t big, I’m chubby. I showed her the bra I was wearing, which fit well, and was a 40B. So she calls in her co-fitter.
The woman tried to nicely tell the original fitter that my excess fat (she called it “bonus skin”) was the issue. So they brought in a bunch of bras in 40 B and C for me to try. They were fun, and since I always shop alone, it was nice having a second opinion. Turned out that the one bra I couldn’t stop stroking was the one that fit me perfectly. Best fitting bra ever…and the softest. And it was a 40 C.
I keep wanting to walk up to strangers and say “Stroke me! Feel how soft my boobies are!”
It was called the Maidenform Comfort Devotion Extra Coverage Bra. I bought two, and am about to go on Amazon and try some other styles. The wireless one looks great for when my kids have friends over and I don’t want to be flopping around them. If it’s the same fabric, it will be awesome. Free returns on Amazon is a great bonus. 🙂
How about you? Have you been fitted for a bra?
