As a larger busted lady finding a well fitting bra has always been a struggle. I seriously went from a flat chested 4th grader to a large C cup 5th grader. My poor mother who is barely an A cup didn’t what to do with me. For the longest time, I wrapped my chest with ace bandages to make them smaller much like Roberta Martin from Now and Then. It wasn’t until I was in my mid-20’s that I was fitted for a bra and it was such liberating experience. When you go for years wearing the wrong kind of bra or the wrong size and then you put on an impeccably well fitting bra – it changes your life. I walked out of the store with a bounce in my step. If you haven’t been fit for a bra recently, GO AND GET FITTED!
Since then I’ve gone up and down in my bra sizes which is frustrating. Having a well fitting foundation is so essential when you wear clothes. If your bra is too small, the straps are falling and always adjusting yourself then you don’t feel comfortable in your clothes. With the weight I’ve lost in the last few months I have lost the most in my bust. I have lost a total almost 4 inches around my bust which means I have gone down 3 sizes in my bras. This would be great and it definitely is a non-scale victory except I now have no bras to wear to the gym. I feel I’m not going to knock someone out while I’m on the elliptical – the girls are just everywhere. I’m going tomorrow to buy new bras.
