Lane Bryant is having a bra sale: buy 2, get 2 free. Except for buying a strapless bra a month ago for a special event, I haven't purchased a bra in over five years. The two old bras I'm wearing now have no lift at all so I really need to buy new ones. One of my daughters even said that what I'm wearing now aren't bras -- they are just fabric between my skin and my shirt :-). However, Lane Bryant's bras cost more than what I am used to spending, even on sale. I decided I should measure myself properly to avoid wasting money. I haven't been measured in many, many years; I've just been guessing at my size based on what it used to be and how much weight I've gained. I figured I was close to a 44C.
Anyway, I had M measure me tonight and according to Lane Bryant's size chart I am a 38G. Really? A 38G? I associate a G-cup with porn stars and strippers who went crazy at the plastic surgeon's office. No one who knows me in real life would say that I have big breasts. I can't bring myself to spend $80+ on bras in that size. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go to the local Lane Bryant before the sale is over to try on a G-cup and confirm my measurement.
An hour later . . . .
I don't know why I didn't think of it before I wrote this post, but I went to LaneBryant.com to check their return policy. If I buy the bras and they are the wrong size, I can exchange them at the local store. Whew! That takes a load off my mind.
