I feel your pain! I started shopping at plus-sized stores to find bras that fit better since most place (the Victoria Secrets of the world) don’t carry larger sizes. Actually, when I was shopping at VS one time the girl told me to go shop at the porn shop because they didn’t carry my size. B***H!!! I’ve never gone back. Lane Bryant usually has some GREAT sales on great bras.

They shrink after babies if you breast feed. It’s something to look forward too. LOL

@Mrs.KMM: I need to go get fitted again. The last time I went I was told that I wore a 34C, that was over a year ago. Now, my breast are always spilling out. I know that people will be buying me lingere for my honeymoon, so I need to be certain that I get a size that fits.

I need to get fitted properly…I think I lost some weight around my ribcage so my old 34Bs fit again, but I still wonder. I need lingerie for the wedding night, too!

Oh man, I can’t even remember the last time I went and got properly fitted for a bra! The last time I went, which was probably when I was a freshman in college, I was a 38C. Now my boobs have the whole bra muffin top thing going on. :/

@Mrs.KMM: My mom went from a 34G while nursing to now a 34AA (albeit this was over 20 years and 40 pounds less).

FH would be very sad if I took up the reduction discussian again. Before we started dating I was contimplating scheduling the surgery for the following summer (a coworker and I were going to be reduction recovery buddies). Then I lost a little weight and found more supportive bras. I went on the pill and even after losing 15-20 lbs I gained a cup size (or several). I was a 32DDD three years ago, now I am a 32G/H, I have a problem with this.

The only positive is that well fitting bra that has cups formed to the way you carry the tissue will make you look smaller (the only people to believe my size are the bra sizers.)

I was inspired by that post, too. I went from being a 38F to a 38G. Fiance doesn’t want me to get a reduction, but unless they shrink after having kids (which seems super unlikely), it’s happening. I’ve dealt with carrying these things for so many years, he can deal with them not being quite as large :P.
