I guess it is quite fitting that my first post in ages is related to boobs since it has just been Breast Cancer Awareness month (it doesn't mean you can stop checking them until next October though)
This is a pet peeve of mine in all areas of clothing and has been for years, but, today I decided I needed to rant.
Firstly, even though I am well endowed, I stiil want pretty bras. I just don't want to sell my first born for them.
Secondly, why do they think that ladies with an ample bosom want padding in their bra. I have plenty of my own thank you.
Let's not forget those women who have had mastectomies. Finding a bra can be difficult, then, when you do they are expensive (there are a few reasonable ones about) and often not that pretty. I'm sure many want extra pretty bras, I know I would.
Now the main reason for this post. Why can't the sizes be standardized? Would it kill them to agree what 38" is?
Yup you guessed it. Hubby went and bought me a new bra on Monday and it fits lovely. He got the only one they stocked in my size (plain in black or pink) but at least it fits,didn't cost the earth and there was 1 style that accepted women can have breasts bigger than a C cup.
I ordered some more from a larger ladies shop same size, pretty and a little more expensive. Guess what. Yup they don't fit. Oh the cup size is fine, but, I really doubt since taking my new bra off for bed last night and my trying the newly arrived bras on today, I have added several inches to my back.
So gotta return the bras and I think I'll stick with trawling the high street trying to find a bra that fits and doesn't cost the earth. Maybe I'll be lucky and find a non padded pretty one too (I think I just heard the wee demons shouting 'Snow day')
