Is it bad form to talk about your bra size on the internet? Probably. But, I am busting at the seams (ha ha ha) with this particular tidbit of information.

I recently (yesterday) found out that my bra size is very, very different from what I thought it was. You see, I was wearing a 34B until this summer, when I realized that a 32C fit me better. Those two sizes are basically the same, except that a 32C is smaller in the band, which translates into a larger difference between the band and the around the biggest part of you measurement.

Over the last few months I began to have a sneaking suspicion that the 32C might not be large enough. This was confirmed yesterday, when I had to spend almost $300 at Nordstrom's on all new bras... in size 32D. According to the lady, I could also probably wear a 30DD, because I am right on the border of a 32 or a 30.

I had barely gotten used to the idea of being a C, so this is really throwing me for a loop. Mind you, I have not gained any weight since the 20 pounds I put on between the age of 19 and 22.

This means I can no longer buy bras at Victoria's Secret or Gap Body. Even at a 32C, there were only a few styles available. I can't believe that I am so unusual of a size that I have to go to specialty stores or Nordstroms and pay 2-3 times more for a simple bra... I'm used to being rather small, not too big!

Anyways. I'm done sharing.

Unfortunately bras are one of those things hard to order online. Unless you can find the exact bra you are already wearing. I have a friend with the exact same fitting problem. Small around but bigger cup size. She never lost her pregnancy boobs
I found your blog after looking at your beautiful projects at Ravelry. I love the mods you made to Fetching. My daughter has long hands also,so I will certainly be using your mods
