    Everything's Gone South

    After losing 186 pounds in 15 months, the anatomy on my body just isn't where it started out. Take for instance, my breasts. Before I had weight loss surgery, I wore a size 46 DD bra. No one knew I had enormous breasts because the rest of me was enormous as well easily hiding this fact.

    As I've lost weight, I've lost inches around my bra band, but nothing in the cup size. I know this because I went and was measured by a professional bra fitter person (a technical name). I was pretty close in my guesstimate of what size I thought I needed. I've been wearing the same bras since about 3 months after surgery. Since I'm still wearing a DD, the old bra is ok in this area, just not the band.

    I tried on at least 15 different styles of bras and came to the conclusion that there isn't a bra out there that will fit me. Either the girls were sagging out the sides, bottoms or tops, or they were squished down like an 11 year old waiting for her first period.

    So, if anyone knows where I can get a 37 D 1/2, shout it out for God's sake.

    Good fucking luck, sister.

    I feel your pain. I'd give head to a good boob doctor so I could get a free boob job.

    Not loosing cup size huh? That doesn't sound right to me. I am a licensed bra fitter and I'm offering my services. Take a video of you naked taking your measurements. Then send the video to me and I'll give you my opinion.

    ack i feel for you, any size that is not an off the rack is a pain in the neck to try to find.

    Bwahahahha at btexpress...perv ;P

    Hey, I have another great picture for ya...I'll email it. hehe

    Sorry about the whole bra fitting thing. I'd be a bit more sympathetic but I haven't worn the right sized bra in FOREVER. And I don't have the guts to go to VS or somewhere to be professionally fitted. I HATE buying bras...
    Just another fun benefit of being a woman

    Heck Im not as big and I cant find the right size either. SO if you find a good place to buy ones that fit make sure you pass it on.
    And ummm sign? why is your picture of you upside down? just asking!

    Oh that is just terrible. It would be so remiss of me not to lend a helping hand, er, hands! I’ll hold them tight until you find the correct bra. Woo Hoo

    Kim said...

    You're hilarious! Maybe you can google the size and see if anything pops up?

    Interesting that you're not losing cup size - that seems to be one of the only things I'm losing - other than hips... and my husband is FREAKING out!

    katie said...

    damn, i wish i had this problem!! hehe! i didn't get much in the ole boob department....i would love to have yours!! hehe!

    have a great day, girl!

    I am SO going to be measured by a professional bra fitter person.

    I severely am in need of being felt-up.

    Buddha Girl~ That is something I could picture you doing.

    BTE~ Wouldn't you rather just fly back to Michigan and be a personal fitter? That sounds more like your style :)

    Lime~ I hate bras!

    Lori~ Being new around here, you will find that most of the men are total pervs :) Go get you a new bra. It's worth it.

    Gab~ My picture is upside down because I put it that way. That's pretty much how I feel most days.

    Sal~ I wouldn't expect you to do anything else.

    Kim~ I never thought of Googling my bra size. That's brilliant!! I'm sorry about yours deflating. It will all be worth it.

    Katie~ Boobs are overrated.

    Strumpet~ You should go get fitted. I could see where you would totally enjoy the procedure.

    Lori said...

    Will you come with me? Come on over to GR and we'll go together...

    What sort of mileage do you think we'll get from the guys around over THAT?!! LOL

    P.S. My new pic is one of my fav's...hehe

    can't be of much help

    my interest in bras is primarily as an observer, and an occasional purchaser of lacy interesting things...


    which is actually not true - we have a couple of stores where they do custom bras.

    i spent years trying to get my stbx to go get some for her work so that it would help ameliorate her sore back

    she wouldn't spend the money

    my mom has bought custom bras (she's in the same size range as you, signgurl) since the early 1980s and would never go back. she has these steel I-beam 3 and 4 wire jobbies that are apparently quite comfortable

    and even if she has to spend a couple of hundred bucks on them, she doesn't wear them out that fast...

    Sorry to hear about your deformed titties..xoxox

    t_cole said...

    Nordstrom's - and have a fitting for a Wacoal bra.
    Spensive as all hell but after finding this brand and getting the right fit i actually decided against breast reduction surgery.
    worked MIRACLES for me. seriously
    Perhaps will be good for you too!
    crossing fingers!

    jillie said...

    Well now there's a size I've never heard of...lol!!!

    Some how I just KNEW Tony would offer his services...LMAO!!!!

    I don't think there is a bra in the world that can fit right. Guys are SO lucky. Unless they would have to have underwear that molded to their balls, they have no idea what we go through...LMAO
