I am among the 90% of women wearing the wrong bra

edited October 2014 in Getting Pregnant
I've gained a little over 20 pounds this year, most of itin my stomach and butt, but bras have also gotten uncomfortable. I've been a 34C since college, but went into Nordstrom today at lunchtime and asked for a fitting, figured I was more like a D cup now. The sales lady measured me at a 32DDD, which sounds absurd to me. PSA: get your tits sized, that shit is crazy.

  • Yep, I agree 100%. There's nothing like a proper fitting bra!

  • I was floored by how wrong the size I was wearing was.

  • Years ago I was at VS and asked to get fitted.  The women looked so uncomfortable doing it, which made me feel uncomfortable, and I never went back to get fitted.  But sounds like something I should get done.  Maybe a trip to Nordstrom  should be in my near future. 
  • I have the same problem Kona!  I, too, need to go get fitted--I know I am in the wrong size--good bras are SO expensive, though.  I keep thinking--if I would just lose weight...these bras would fit again!

    They are pretty pricey, but what I did is get fitted at Nordstrom, I bought one of the bras that I  liked (Elomi, which is $55) and then watched Nordstrom Rack for my size going forward.  It totally changed the way my clothes fit.

    I pay $70 for Elomi here, but I've found a few on Amazon for $39.99.

  • Totally agree! I was sized earlier this year at Soma and found out I was a triple D as well. Crazy stuff. I never realized how uncomfortable I was before!

    In Christ alone my hope is found. He is my LIGHT, my STRENGTH, and my SONG!
