This may not be the case once they come out of the bra, but geez.
I know this talk has been had over and over, but somehow some of you missed it.
Boobs are going to eventually sag, unless you get a breast lift or boob job somewhere down the line. In addition to gravity taking its natural course on your chest, people are also confused about what a “normal drop” looks like since the infiltration of fake boobies. But there is nothing I hate more than seeing a woman with a bra on and they are still sagging. Ugh! Pick.them.up.
Not everyone shops at Victoria’s Secret and for those of you who do and never take the advice of the salepersons in the SPECIALITY STORE, shame on you. That measuring tape around their neck is not flare. They use it so that you do not become an unidentified example on the Oprah show. No matter how influential Oprah is, there are still women that wear the WRONG bra.
You may shop wherever you’d like. It really doesn’t matter as long as they have someone to measure. However, I doubt that $10 bra is of good quality, unless it has been marked down several times. Hmmmm. No one wanted it.
Let’s start with what the number and letter(s) mean.
36C. A median size…I think.
• The number indicates the circumference around the back to the front underneath your boobs.
• The cup size is measured the same way, but across the nipples with a bra on.
• Demi • Push Up • Push Up Convertible . Full Coverage • Lined • Unlined • Balconet
I’m not going to go over each style, but all adult women’s bras should be lined.
Women that are a “full C” or more are advised to only wear full coverage. I DON’T agree. I think the Demi is a perfect compromise, “everyday bra,” for someone that is a “full C,” D, or DD . I’m too young to wear full coverage that only comes in Black, Nude, and White. For women that are a 38DD or higher, Cacique offers several lines of modern better looking bras for well-endowed women. Really. You should stop by and check it out.
Only teenage girls should wear unlined bras. Additionally, only modestly boobed teenage girls should wear cotton bras. There is no way a cotton bra is enough support for a woman.
What you need to go bra shopping?
A wet t-shirt contest kind of t-shirt.
Why? If the bra is not the right size, you will see it in the front and back. A bra should be smoothing and lifting things. Nothing should be popping out or running over.
My bra test:
It fits comfortably on the 1st hook. The last 2 are to used in the future as the bra inevitably stretches out.
Bend over – okay, nothing fell out and they haven’t shifted
Walk Around – okay, they’re not jiggling too much and the straps are comfortable
Turn to the side – okay, they’re up and there is no extreme back fat because it’s too small around.
Lastly, try on different styles until you find the right one; your size is not set in stone. The size you’ll need from style to stlye can change and the measuring just gets you within the range you should be wearing.
