TMI (apologies in advance)

Last Friday, I found myself at Victoria’s Secret getting measured and fitted for bras and, 10 days later, I’m still not sure how I ended up in that store and in that dressing room. I may have been transported by Bra Faeries or hit over the head and dragged to the store by the Bra Mafia. Because I swear that I didn’t go to the mall to get my goodies sized up. But, oh, I am so happy that I did.

Now, here’s the thing: I don’t really have boobs. I mean, I obviously do – it’s just that, well, they aren’t exactly the first thing you notice about me. Or the second. Or the tenth.

So, when the girl measured me and suggested the size she suggested, I told her that she was wrong.

“That doesn’t seem, um, close at all,” I told the girl. Who is a professional. Or as professional as a college kid working at VS in the mall can be.

But she sort of shrugged me off and started throwing bras at me.

Bras with a C cup, bitches. And an alarmingly small band size. And they actually fit.

Best trip to the mall ever.

I'm way jealous. I can never find a bra that fits properly.

hahahaha isn't that funny how that happens? Not to leave my bra size on here for the world to see BUT I wear a size that NO one would guess looking at me that has a larger letter but smallest band size...and is technically smaller then the next band sizes up and letter size down. Okay I made that way confusing but I meant to say I wear a totally weird bra size and would never have know if I didn't get fitted properly too!

Teagan: YES. We're in the same bra boat. hahaha.

AM: OMG, I would have bet cash money that you would leave that comment. It is totally a vanity C - I still join you in having no boobs.

Thisisme: Tragic. And so uncomfortable. You poor, poor thing.

I'm in the bra boat with you guys! I got fitted and went up to a C but down a band size from what I though I was. There is some statistic that Oprah threw out that like 90% of women are wearing bras that are the wrong size...

Hmmm...maybe I will have to go and get fitted sometime. I attempted it once but the lady kept telling me I would have to take off my pants too -- I left at that point.
Did you inform the Coach that you bought some new bras from VS?

Bras and boobs are such weird things. They change so often and yet we get stuck with this notion that we have the same bra size we had when this whole boob-growing-thing started. The two times I got professionally measured I almost spit out my beverage when they told me the actual size.

And I wasn't even drinking anything at the time.

I keep saying I'm going to do this and never get around to it. Maybe... just maybe... you've inspired me! :)
