On Breasts

February 20th, 2014 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Personal

A well-fitted bra is a great thing. I have spoken to a lot of other women about this and it is generally agreed that when a bra fits and is comfortable you feel better about yourself. It can make a real difference in your confidence.

I have had fitting in the past. I have had bras that I truly loved. Lately I have been struggling with my current bras – strap slippage, underwires cutting into me, nasty bulging. And then I came across this blog post. The post include this video:

A new way to measure yourself.

It seemed strange, but I decided to give it a try and write it down. I just sort of left it at that until one day when the bra I was wearing was so uncomfortable and shifting around so much that I was ready to burn the thing. That day I spent my afternoon bra shopping. I tried on the size that the video measurements gave me and give or take a couple of inches on the band it fit just like she said it should.

The fact is that bra sizes don’t make any sense. When I started looking around at all the regular stores I found band sizes that went up to a 52, but cup sizes stopped at a DD or DDD. That just doesn’t make any sense. Breasts are made of fat. Chances are if you have a women that fits a 52 band she’s not going to be a DD. You can’t just keep increasing the band size and not the cup size, it doesn’t work.

We’re being taught that anything over a D-cup is HUGE! MASSIVE! RIDICULOUS! But that’s just not true.

I also have to remind myself that every bra fits differently and trying on is the only way to know.
