Super bras! - The Void: Mind Wanderings of a Lost Soul
Super bras!
It's amazing how a new bra can make you feel. Not only are my boobs high, perky, and super-supported in this new bra, but I'm also feeling a bit like superwoman.
I will take out your rays of doom with my boobs! Muhahahaha
It's insanity, I know.

But I tell you, going bra shopping last night almost had me in tears. The only reason I even went was because it seems that every bra I owned decided in the last two-three weeks that underwire worked best by breaking in half and stabbing me to a bloody pulp. Now, I've worn them anyway, because frankly, I had too, but would shove a small cloth in between the freaking wire and the boob, thus deflecting most of the damage. So I go shopping, browse around, fingering different styles, end up with six that I want to try on (because as every woman can tell you, they all fit and feel a little different) in my normal size of 40D. Cut to in the dressing room, beginning to freak out, because none (not one!) of the bras are fitting. I am so pissed off at this point, that I want to stalk out of that store immediately. But I behaved and realized that I HAD to buy at least one bra to wear or I would forever be stabbed. So I go and cringe and pick up a few bras in the next size up, 42D. God I hate saying that. I try on those, and while it still was a tight fit, I ended up settling on two.

Now here's my question. How is it that all my bras at home, which are 40D still fit, yet even the 42's in the store are really tight? I haven't gained weight, everything is pretty much the same....the only thing I can figure is that I'm bloated due to the monthly visitor just ending. Because I really hate the thought that I'm getting even bigger. It's hard enough to find 40D's much less anything larger in most stores. *huge sigh*.....

I think it is because bras, like shoes, need to be broken in and once they have been worn for a long time they get looser-- allowing room for growth. And, that is my theory. *cough*

i figure that too, but it's a shame that it doesn't fit well enough to break them in so that I could pretend that I didn't change sizes.

You didn't change sizes... see, they have altered the way they make bras and therefor you are really wearing a smaller size, but there sizing is off. And... and its the bra ninjas. Yeah... the bra ninjas!!

that was my first thought, that the bra ninjas have changed their sizing again...giggle...ok, so maybe not bra ninjas, but I was think about the bra nazis :)

Usually when I go bra shopping mine are in the training section. I never really have to try them on I just get the smallest size they make. Still even with the tiny boobage factor a new bra does make you feel better. My Mom is always complaining at bra fit because she has nice big ones...but I just tell her atleast she gets her monies worth...they don't price down bras just because you only need a bandaid size one. :D

lol...i never thought of the price not changing...not quite fair since they do make things cost more when you need a larger size....those snarky bastards.
