Who ever said your boobs are the first thing to go when you lose weight is a BIG FAT LIAR!!! I know I have mentioned weight loss before to my audience. I have been dieting and I am doing quite well actually, save for the month of Dec 2013. We won’t discuss how bad we blew it during the holidays (diet wise). Anyway.. since the new year we are back to our regimens and our exercise. Go us! I have shaved off nearly 30 pounds now… and you would think that some of that would be boobage… and you would be gravely mistaken. Sighs…
Now don’t get me wrong… I like boobs… a lot in fact, but there comes a size when they are just too cumbersome and uncomfortable. When you can lay someone out by turning around too fast (bra-less) without ever raising a fist… you might have a little too much boobage. When your chiropractor puts you on the inversion thingy and turns you upside down and you nearly suffocate… you might have a little too much boobage.
One of the things that excited me about losing some weight was that I would have less boobage to deal with. A nice D cup is awesome but… bigger than that (I think) can be a challenge for the person wearing them. Just my opinion. I have lost 4 inches in my band size and although my boobs have not gotten any larger (or smaller) my cup size has increased from a 44 F to a 40 L. I think after finding the handy dandy sizing chart on a couple of websites that I was perhaps wearing a smaller size cup than needed before I started dieting, but sheesh, seriously an L???!!! I did not know cup sizes even went up that high. But that’s the size my measurements indicate I should be wearing according to the chart. My wife has also lost close to 30 lbs. and 4 inches around and is having the same problem. She too has lost nothing in her boobs. WTF???!!!
Herein lies the other difficulty; even at the big girl stores.. once you are above a certain cup size… there is NO place you can go to try a bra on. I found this out the hard way when I hit all my local retailers with the new sizes we needed and found zilch. Not only did my search prove fruitless… but I was told by more than one sales person that my wife was an anomaly, that only people who have had boob jobs have a cup size that large while being so small around. REALLY???!!! In the end you just have to order online and trust the size charts and hope said bra fits when it arrives in the mail. Don’t get me started of the price of a bra that actually supports large breasts, you almost need to be independently wealthy. I guess if nothing else this serves as encouragement to stick to my weight loss goals. Eventually the boobs have to get smaller right?
