OMG Boobies! And they’re REAL!

I took best friend Nomi to the mall on Tuesday, because she had a gift card but no car. Yes, I know we’re crazy for going to the mall the day after Christmas but it wasn’t that bad really. Parking was a bitch, but other than that…

Anyhow, the reason for this post. We were at Lane Bryant and Nomi showed me the bras she wears. She can’t sing their praises enough, apparently. We decided I should get measured, so I know what size I really take instead of just guessing…just in case I decide to get a new bra soon. I told the lady I needed measured and into the changing room we went. I’ve been wearing about a 40C, but that’s only because it’s the only thing remotely comfy I can find. The lady’s diagnosis? I am a 36DDD. That’s right…DDD.

I went next door to Victoria’s Secret, because I knew that they did sizing. The lady there asked me what I wore and I told her 40C (because it’s what I had on). She did the FASTEST fitting and said “I have you at a 40 C/D”. She’s so full of crap. Never trust those people.

Nomi and I decided I should split the difference, since a 36 was a bit tight. I went with a 38DD. Aaron and I went back to Lane Bryant and bought me a new bra. I wore it for the first time today and HOLY BOOBIES BATMAN! If I stand up straight I can’t see my toes – and not because my tummy is in the way. Not only that, but I can’t see my tummy – and it’s not because I’ve lost a lot of weight (although I have lost 8 pounds). No…none of those things. It’s because my boobs are too big to see anything else.

Aaron, of course, loves them. I am not sure what to do with them. I remember having boobs before, big ones…but I was 118 pounds then, in a size 10 pants, with 36B’s. I was bigger than that (pound wise) when Aaron and I met almost 4 years ago. I was about 180, still with 36B’s, but they’ve been growing at random ever since. I haven’t gained any weight in the past year, but I’ve gone up at least 2 cup sizes since then…4 in the past 4 years. I can’t keep up this rate of growth…can I?! I’m already afraid that if I go outside when it’s cold that I’m going to poke someone’s eyes out…

So that’s my most recent drama…that doesn’t involve parents, at any rate. 🙂 Hope you got a chuckle!

    Hooray for boobies!!! Victorias Secret totally lies. The last time I ever shopped there the saleschick told me “If you want them to look bigger, just buy a smaller size!” Uhhh…no? It just makes them lumpy and freakish looking. Thanks.

    Yay for good bras though! If you’re worried about putting someones eye out, you can always get some of those corner protector things for baby-proofing homes. 🙂

  2. Lol Jen! That is too funny! I sure did get a giggle out of that. And I didn’t fall off the face of the earth, I’m here! Still TTC, almost on C12. Yay.

  3. Hey V: I might have to look into those corner protector things – these are dangerous. Remember when your mom said things like “Put that down! You’re going to poke someone’s eyes out with that”? Well..I can’t put ’em down ma…they’re firmly glued!

    SHAUNA! You’re alive! I was really beginning to get worried. I’m glad to see the move went well and that you’re still around!
