I could not be more frustrated about this, and I hope I’m not alone!
You all know that in the past few months I’ve been eating more healthily and incorporating exercise into my weekly routine. It’s made such a difference in my energy level, and—bonus!— I’ve managed to lose fifteen pounds! The bad news? My boobs have totally shrunk, too!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m still happy to look and feel healthier, but I was a pretty small-chested girl to begin with (34 B/C), so… yeah, I’m bummed. I’ve shrunk out of all my old bras, which left me wearing sports bras for a few weeks until I finally made it Victoria’s Secret over the weekend to get fitted.
The first girl told me I was a 32 C. I knew right away that she had no clue what she was talking about, and sure enough, the C cup was way too big (shame). Another girl thought I was either a 34 A or a 32 B. I tried on the A and was relieved to find that it was too small. (I was not ready to accept that my boobs had shrunk a full cup and a half!) I tried on the 32 B, which fit great in the cup, but not so much around my back. The woman then told me that I was “between sizes” and would pretty much just have to deal with it.
I ended up buying a 34B, which is a little too big, but better than a sports bra… and it has some padding, so at least I can pretend that I’m the size I was a few months ago. Am I the only one out there with bra-sizing issues?!
Have you had trouble finding good-fitting bras? Which brands do you like best? Have you ever changed bra sizes, like me? Any advice for an in-between girl like myself?! Please share your stories in the comments!
