On a lighter note...

I bought a new bra yesterday.

Yes this is an Event! My life is that depressing.

Yipee - they are finally getting smaller again:-) I can now buy bra's off the shelf from every day shops.

Only the nasty grandma type ones obviously. I wanted a pretty set of lingerie for our dirty weekend away, but that was not to be:-( But still, shrinkage is shrinkage. After three pregnancies where they grew EACH TIME (and they weren't exactly minute to start with) I am thankful for any reduction.

Although my ribs have not contracted at all, which is really depressing. Back in 2000 I was a nice 36C - a "good handful" as a previous boyfriend once commented, and certainly a good enough size to flaunt when I wanted , but carry on with normal life, exercise and the occasional strapless top. Mstr A added 4 inches to my rib-cage & the two girls expanded them another inch each. And that's where I still am today. I guess losing some weight might help a bit *sigh* I've been saying that I should do so for ages, but haven't actually succeeded at all:-(

But I'm well happy that they have shrunk down from something scary half way up the alphabet back to a D cup. I shall ty to use this as the incentive to get back on my diet.

After the weekend away;-)

    I hate bra buying, but I'm a few cup sizes up from you. However for pretty bras in a D cup you want this place - www.bravissimo.com, it's where I get all mine from and they are very good on customer service. It's even better if you have one of their shops near you, their fitters are excellent, trained to cater for the larger lady, since they don't sell anything smaller than a D cup.

    Gah. I hate bra-shopping. Which is silly, because I love pretty underthings. But, lordy, do I hate shopping for bras. A size is not a size. Some fit, some don't. And if you want pretty AND supportive for the more richly-endowed, you'll need to take out a loan at the bank... Gah.

    I've actually wept over not being able to buy a pretty bra - I'm not a grandma and I don't want to wear granny bras. And a D just isn't so freaky or unusual that there aren't enough of us around to buy em if "they" make em! I suspect it's some sort of plot :)

    Oh, boobs, both before and after motherhood...I wish! The only time I ever had ANY was while breastfeeding, and I was so top heavy I kept nearly falling over. I was small before, and am small now..and I hear ya when you say buying a bra is an EVENT, it's not depressing mate, it's motherhood!

    It's interesting that you mention the ribs. I tried explaining this to someone else and they thought I was nuts. I always wore very fitted dresses before pregnancy. With my first child I gained 22 pounds and lost the same within a week of delivery. I was a very skinny size 5. When I tried to get back into my pre-pregnancy clothes, even after losing additional weight, nothing fit across the ribcage, it had nothing to do with boobs. My ribs never did go back to normal, I'm sure they expand outward to accommodate the baby, but why don't they shrink back with everything else? Oh, and after the second child and gaining 70 pounds, there was no hope anything would go back to normal. But the last pregnancy left me with giant jugs as my partner likes to say. How I miss being flat-chested!
