It started off as a simple item on my shopping list today : Buy new bra.
I would imagine this is the point when many of my female readers will begin to laugh in solidarity........................
I have always had difficulty finding a bra that fits; ironically,the only time I have ever been able to get one to fit was when I was breastfeeding, and Mothercare had brilliant bras. They fitted and they were COMFORTABLE too.
Armed with the information culled from a newspaper that most women wear bras which are the wrong size for them, I dutifully googled for websites with bra calculation sizes. I visited two different UK sites and was a tad perturbed to find that one site said I needed an A cup, the other site said I needed a D cup in the same size. I normally have a C.
So today I went shopping. I thought it was going to be simple, but it proved anything but...........
Very few of the ones I liked were in either of my supposed correct sizes, but eventually I managed to find one in each cup size. When I tried them on, with one I couldn`t breathe (which I happen to feel is sooo important!) and the other was obviously the wrong cup size :-)
So I tried on two more bras, in different sizes, in increasing desperation before I gave it up as a bad job and went home to brood.
I think the only option is to go back to Mothercare in our nearest Big Town and buy from there, which feels ridiculous when DD4 is nearly five years old and I am definitely not pregnant , LOL.
