If you were thinking this was one of those uplifting inspirational blogs...forget it, i,m not that much of an optimist! LOL, NOPE what this blog is about is BOOBS!, i have recently had problems with my bras, they seem to have shrunk in the wash...or so i had thought! hunting all over yesterday for a tape measure the ONLY one i could find is the metal retractable one in my tool bag! huh oh well it will have to do..measuring around i was IMPRESSED to note that it said 41 inches..MAN i am becoming Dolly Parton!...now prior to this i have been a 38C for as long as i have had the kids pretty much, so seeing 41 on the tape measure was quite a shock, and explained the bras, and the fact that my hand has been down my t. shirt alot lately adjusting!! infact lately i am the only person coppin a feel of the merchandise!! tongue out  so i go online and try to figure out what bra size i now am, i had gone to Ross a few times now and tried on 38c bras, only to find half of me wasnt in the bra i was trying on!  I find a few websites, and this is what i found out, I HAVE NO IDEA what size i am..on one it seemed i would be a 38D, i dont know how so if i am 41 around! on another i would be 42AA...okay that was depressing cos have you seen the bras they have for 42AA..i wouldnt be seen DEAD in them..i may as well get rid of my undies and head for the granny knickers..NOT HAPPENING LADIES!!..so if there is ANYONE who can make heads or tails of bra sizing PLEASE HELP ME..as these puppies are coming unleashed! with the metal tape measure i am 37 under the boobs, and 41 around the boobs..i havent gained weight..infact have lost 16lbs this past year thus far..i wondered where the 16lbs had gone and now i know! LOL.
Or do you think i should go getting a proper bra fitting..the thought of the unknown scares me just a tad..i always assume the worst and think i will be naked in front of some old lady with a tape measure, and stone cold hands!  ANY HELP would be greatly appreciated...and if i am a 42 anyone know of a place to still buy pretty sexy bras..that arent WHITE !

    • LOL!!!!!!

      Go get a proper bra fitting. I took my youngest shopping for bras (her b-day wish was a good bra from VS instead of WallyWorld). So there we are in Vickis Secrets getting measured.... She thought she was a 34B but after being measured it turns out she was a 32C.

      I have been measured at Nordstroms, VS and Edies custom Bras in Allen Park, MI and they have all came up with the same size for me....

      However different bras fit differently you need to find your brand

    • I’m with Vikki, you should get fitted for the best fit. Good luck finding a pretty bra, I have noticed the bigger they are the fuglier they tend to be, I’m lucky my boobies are quite small, the downside is that most bras I find are padded which I hate, but without the padding I’m nippling and that isn’t good, guys don’t mind but it can tend to look trashy and inappropriate...(on me)estatic

    • it seems that 42B is one of those hard to find sizes! they have 42C s but they are tooooo big for me...so ended up finding 2 fugly bras at walmart..the ONLY 2 in the store that were 42B..both white! I am frustrated to say the least, bet pamela anderson doesnt wear white bras from wally world that her grandma wore, time to boycott stores and say we want sexy back! after all as a curvy woman i want to look and feel sexy still. Lane bryants clothes are too big for me, didnt know they did bras, and i do like the look of that one thank you.

    • You really need to try Lane Bryant.... I am sure they will have a PRETTY bra to fit you even if the clothes don’t.

      I’m that weird between size where some misses clothes fit and some don’t and most womens clothes don’t fit me right either. But the bras at LB are really good and not too horribly expensive.

      Now Freya is my favorite but they tend to run $50 and higher. Worth every penny because they are SUPER SEXY but I am trying to watch expenses so...

    • I don’t have your situation, but I know Lane Bryant does have a lot to offer as far as sexy for full figured women even in lingerie. Have fun.
