My boobs thank you

So I went this weekend and got the girls measured for proper housing.

I cried when she told me that I'm a 34F because ain't nobody got time for boobs like that.  

Basically, they are just as large as they were before getting pregnant, but now they are just waaayyyy floppier.  There was another mom in there and we were standing around, topless, bemoaning the PP state of our boobs.  She said, "I'm just biding my time until I can get a boob job". I immediately liked her.

Anyway, after much hemming and hawing with the lady at the place, I found a bra, and my boobs are looking outstanding today.  I can't believe I waited this long to go get a good bra.

ETA: The point of this was to thank you ladies for the suggestions on places to go.  I ended up going to Intimacy and will be going to Nordstrom next weekend.  Intimacy only had a black bra that I liked and I want a nude one too.

  • 34F!!!

    Your poor back. I think all us parenting pancake bewbs should go en masse and get a group discount on a BJ (boob job, the good BJ).

    I know I want mine lifted, and they are only C's.

    Once I'm done BFing, I'm going to get a bra fitting. Girls need some help.

    A tummy tuck is first on my wish list, though.

    Seriously! I went up to a D-cup while pregnant and everyday I thought "this is some bullsh!t"
    ::gladly strokes B-cups::

    If I'm being totally truthful the F cup is a little snug, but AF arrived yesterday (glory glory hall-ay-looo-yer) so I'm thinking they will de-puff a little.

    I'm a size B too, even with nursing. DH would be ecstatic if I could be an F, or even C, D, or E, ha ha.
  • At this point I feel like they are in proportion to the rest of my body.  I'm 5'9" and pretty... curvy... so they do not look porn starish by any means thankfully.

    Now, if I were like 5'3" and weighed 125 or something... I'd probably spend all day loathing them.

    ETA: for now I'm just grateful that they stick out further than my post-baby tummy pooch.

    Omg! A tummy tuck would be amazing. I have already somehow lost all the baby weight, but my stomach looks like ***. It just hangs there and I hate it so much.

    You just described me, as we have the same bra size. But they're milk boobs, so that's different, right?!

    I'm jealous of your bewbs.

    Mine don't even puff up when I get my period anymore.  They're just sad, 24/7.

    I need to go for a bra fitting, bc I don't even know what size they are anymore.  I feel like B's are too small and C's have extra room.

    I'm a boob anomaly.

    You are probably neither one. I was thinking I was a 38DD or 40D before I measured.

    34J is my real size. And no, they are not ridiculous sized. American bra makers are fuvcked up on their idea of large breasts and not offering sizes beyond a D or DD.

    Milk boobs are a whole different animal.  Seriously, when I was breastfeeding, my boobs were so outrageously stripper-ish it wasn't funny.

    This is what I was thinking the entire time I was in that damn fitting room.  Like... WTF my boobs are not porno-like... I shouldn't have off-the charts boobs because they aren't SOOOOO outrageous.

    The size sounds worse than it is.

    Try a B with a larger band, or a C with a smaller one.

  • Getting a good bra is such a relief. When I was breastfeeding, my cup size was K. I was so embarrassed. There called down some now, but I'm still in a G. The Lane Bryant at the big mall is hit or miss for me lately, but they used to be really good!

  • I went bra shopping on Saturday too. I went to Nordstroms and the salesgirl was extremely helpful. Turns out I'm a band size smaller than I thought. My girls are much happier and better looking today.

    The first few weeks I looked like I was gonna topple over. It was ridiculous. At least some of my larger shirts fit again, lol

    THANK YOU.  Yes.  My floppy J(?) cups are squeezed into an E cup right now because the American bra manufacturers either only employ men who have no concept of boob size, or skinny little girls straight out of college who are all blessed with nothing larger than a C cup! 

    There's a serious business opportunity, there.

    Or just order online because there are a plethora of options there. Most have decent return policies too.
