Time for burning bras

I went bra shopping last week (feel free to shudder). Why is it so hard? Why isn’t there a universal size for all brands? I think it is time to take them off and burn them girls!

Not only was I unable to find 2 bras in different brands that fit the same but bras of the same size in the same brand also had fitting issues. Eventually, I found one that fit and looked nice under my shirt so I bought it…

… I get it home and it doesn’t fit the same! How does the change room deceive me like this? I feel like I’m 15 again and trying to work out my size except that all my other bras are the same size and they fit.

I need to get fitted again maybe, have you been? How often do you go and when did you get your first fitting? I didn’t get my first one until I was 24!! and then I had the best bras I’d ever worn… it didn’t help that until that point I didn’t know what cup size came after D.

Now I’m off to shrug around until this bra feels like it fits.

    Maybe your old bras are just a bit stretched out and you’re used to the wrong size?

    I got fitted for the first time last year, and before that my mom and I measured each other. Except that we did it wrong and were wearing the wrong size all along. 😛

    I dunno if I’d burn my bras. I think that my boobs would feel really annoying while I was running and walking around.

    I’ve never actually been fitted before. I’m the type to just take in a bunch of different sizes into the fitting room and hope for the best.

    Though, now that I’ve lost more weight I think I might need to downgrade. Maybe it’s time to have that fitting for the first time?

    I think bra shopping is the most frustrating thing I ever have to do. I hate it, but I don’t have enough bras. (I have like, 2 that actually fit me.) My problem is that I have a small back size but a really big cup size, so not enough places make my size. If I want to buy a decent bra in my size, I have to pay way over the odds and it really winds me up. Plus my bra size differs greatly depending on the cut and brand.

    The last time I went bra shopping, I went to about 5 different shops, some of which were department stores, and I didn’t find one bra that fit. It really winds me up. It also drives me mad that friends of mine can walk into Primark and pay about £4 for a bra and I have to pay at least £20. (And that’s IF I find one in my size.)

    I’ve got a feeling I’m going to go off on a random rant about bras so I guess I’ll stop moaning now. 😛
