Once upon a time, I went to Victoria’s Secret to see if I could find something that did not, in fact, make my boobs look hilariously large. Upon selecting my targets and entering the changeroom area, I was asked if I wanted to be measured. I thought, sure, why not?
She measured me at a 36C. Now, I knew this was incorrect because I own a couple of 36C bras. These bras are both too small in the cup and too big in the band; nip-slip hazards as well as the back riding up to my shoulderblades. Needless to say, these bras sit unworn in my closet.
I explained this to the lady, and she was like, “Just try it anyway,” with a “you totally don’t know what you’re talking about” gleam in her eyes. So, I tried on her precious 36C, and exactly what I said would happen, happened. Band rode up, boobs busted out of the cups. ”Try a 34D,” she advised.
Well, herp-de-derp, lady, I thought. That’s my size anyway.
Tried 34D. Boobs still busting out of cups. ”Try a 34DD,” she suggested.
Tried 34DD. Proper fit. Great, I thought, the boobies have grown.
So, to recap: the VS lady measured me at a 36C. Actual size? 34DD.
Moral of the story: Victoria’s Secret is so very pretty, but so very suckish.
Okay so I know Macy's and Nordstrums has big bras but i am a 34G and I am 16 and still in HS and would like cute bras that dont look like grandma boobs but i have a budget and victoria secret doesnt carry my size nor does fredricks:/ help...
Alright girlfriend, I did some quick research. I’m actually a 34D/DD (I know a lot of people have it a lot worse than me, but that’s big enough to cause issues, trust) so I didn’t know anything firsthand.
However, I found THIS site: http://www.annsummers.com/c/lingerie/bras which sells up to H cup! Not ridiculously expensive, quite cute, and shipping is free over 34 pounds (I’d guess that around $45, don’t quote me on that though, that’s a total guess). If you’ve never ordered online, you have GOT to try it. Sometimes that’s the only way to get what you really want/need :)
I hope I was of some help at least, if any busty ladies out there have any other suggestions please feel free to contribute :D
Maybe I’m getting overexcited, but the fact is my personal has less than 30 followers (and I’ve been posting regularly since August) so this is a big deal for me. Plus, only started this, what, three days ago now? SHIT’S REAL.
