Any male readers? Any readers at all? Well, if you are reading this and you are male, you may want to skip this post. Or maybe not – suit yourself.
The cups I reference are bra cups. Yes, I want to talk about bras.
My 10 year old daughter, who has the figure of a 6 year old girl, cannot wait to wear a bra. I, on the other hand, had to practically be forced into bondage at age 13 or so when it could no longer be denied. I compensated by wearing T-shirts under my clothes and rounding my shoulders a lot. I think at the time I was protesting getting older, turning into a “woman”, and all that came along with that.
Today I shun bra wearing because it’s so darn uncomfortable.
I consider myself lucky. I’m relatively small chested, so I can get away without wearing a bra a good portion of the time. I wear a sports bra to run in, and if I go out in public with a single layer on, I usually wear a regular.
But you know what? I can’t find a bra that fits. Or perhaps more accurately, I don’t know how to find a bra that fits.
My cup size is best described, by me anyway, as A-and-a-half. Wear a B cup bra and I have tons of extra fabric. Wear an A cup bra and I’m busting out all over (oh, I just made a pun!). I don’t want to wear padding.
How does a between-cup-sizes gal find a bra? Please, oh ye readers with breasts, guide me in my quest!
