Ok so here's a random bit of information that no one wants to hear. I have always bought 36A bras when not pregnant and 36B bras when pregnant and 36C bras when pumping or nursing. I hate underwires so I always buy Victoria's Secret IPEX wireless bras. Today, while the hubster and the kidlet wandered through GameStop, a place I refuse to set foot in, I wandered into Victoria's Secret. An incredibly chipper woman lunged toward me with a tape measure. Our conversation went as follows:
Would you like me to measure you?
A bra (said in an impossibly sunny way. Who could enjoy a job that involves boob measuring?)
Ummm...sure. Why not?
Ummm I don't think so lady. I have tiny boobs and my chest is way bigger than a 34. I don't like my clothes to touch me.
Bras are supposed to touch you.
I don't like my clothes to touch me.
Well if you want perky, then you have to have the proper band size.
Did I mention perky? What makes you think I want perky?
(She then looks pointedly at my apprently non perky breasts). Let's just try one on.
So I try on a 34D. And it fits. And I have boobs. And they are not small. When did this happen? Have I always had boobs and just not known it? Wow.
Alas I did not buy the bra...I don't like my clothes to touch me and I could feel the band...and it was touching me. But it's good to know that if I ever get over the whole "clothes can't touch me" thing then I could actually fill out a t-shirt quite nicely.
