I just can't believe it!
I did the 'bra size calculator' that Charlotte gave us....it said I was a 32 DD (or DDD)and of course I rolled on the floor laughing ROFLOL!!!!
I thought it was the biggest JOKE that I had ever had!!
I had been wearing a 34B or (if pregnant) 36C....for 30+ years!!!!
BUT, I just spent 3 hours bra 'hunting' and trying on every 34Ds (the biggest they have where I'm from!)
AND...discovered that I AM a 32DD!!! (SHOCKED!!!)
I have been be-moaning my small breast size since I was 14....
1) AND hating how I look in T-Shirts....
2)AND hating Bras (burn baby burn!!)
3) AND wishing for a silicon implant...(even though the surgery movie gives me the willies!)
BLAMING my girls....for being SMALL (unsatisfied).....
WHEN in fact...they have been PUTTING UP with me SQUISHING them into a B-cup UNDERWIRES for 30+ years....no wonder I was always SQUIRMING!!??
(Poor girls....will you ever forgive me??)
So, Long Story Short....TONIGHT I went shopping for 3 hours...
1)I purchased a 34D...even though I had to put it on the TIGHTEST setting (ya know the elastic stretches.....so GET the SMALLER BAND size so it's wear life is longer -- and DON't PUT it in the DRYER!!!)
2)And gave my daughter all my 34B bras
3)And have to special order a 32DD online
I found this website....and some bras on *sale* for about $24.95
4) Needless to say....I am thinking that I am QUITE LARGE now, and I am celebrating tonight *with my girls*....
5) finally I *look good* in my t-shirts!...
Just goes to show you what *silly things* or *lies* we get in our heads about ourselves, others, etc.....and it just goes on and on.....
UNTIL the LIGHT goes ON!!!
Thanks Charlotte....this was really a *God thing* (believe it or not....so sad to be so hard on myself....unsatisfied with my looks for most of my life, KWIM??)
ALSO: since I have breastfed 6 babies...I have lost some of the padding on my breastbone area....so the 'triangle' shaped bras 'cut-into' my skin...and don't look right...so only the Push-up kind work for me. (maybe if I work on my 'Pecs' ?)
AND....when I layed back to read in bed last night....I didn't have all the 'Cup Gaping' like in my 34B cup! (it was still 'all filled in'....just amazing what the right bra will do for you!)
