I recently got measured at Nordstrom (and drove two hours there because that’s the closest place like that to me), and they measured me at a 34DD. I didn’t buy any bras there that day, but did pick up two that I liked at Nordstrom Rack a little closer to my house for half the original cost. Awesome, right?
Now I’m scared that they actually don’t fit. They look fine, but I feel like they’re sitting too low on my ribcage and it really hurts! It took me a couple of weeks to realize that the soreness there (well after I’ve taken off my bra for the day) is probably because of the bra itself. I was thinking it was hurting because it was too tight in the band, but I don’t feel like my boobs look that perky in these bras, so maybe the band is actually too loose?
I also got some recommendations previously on the board that my band size was probably too large based on my size (anywhere from 4-8 depending, but generally more in the 6-8 range).
What do I do? I would rather not put more money into bras that don’t fit well as I’m poor (in grad school), so I don’t necessarily want to go spend more money on a 32DD if it might not help. I’m also not sure where to try to get measured as I don’t have a Soma or anything anywhere near me – not a single bra-specific store, in fact. I’ve looked. (And I’m peeved that I drove all that way because Nordstrom was so highly recommended, and now it turns out I might have been mis-measured.)
