Every time I write ‘fuller bust’ I cringe. Not because there is anything wrong with being fuller bust or small bust or no bust for that matter. It’s just I don’t see myself that way. Maybe it’s the years of being put into the wrong size bras (34d) I always seem to see myself as within the core size ranges. And I’m not really. I’m starting to realise slowly that I definitely need a 30 band sometimes even a 28 and that there is nothing wrong with that. But I still feel like I’m lying to myself, that I’m forcing myself into bras that don’t fit me when really they are the best sizes for me.
I recently ordered from a Polish fuller bust brand. When it arrived I took one look at it and my heart sank. I was thinking that after I took my measurements 100 times I’d got it wrong. This beautiful bra looked way too big to ever fit me. So I put off trying it on for a few days until I had worked out if I could exchange it. I’d worked myself into a state all over the size of a bra, I had thought that I had ordered a cup size too big and that I was kidding myself that I would ever fit into it. Then I tried it on. And it’s pretty much perfect….
Does anyone else suffer from this weird psychological battle of bra sizes? I know that a bra size doesn’t define me but I think it’s more the labels that are associated with them. I look at other people in the full bust market and I’m just like “yep I don’t belong”. Even people I know always assume I am a very different size than what I am and for some reason it offends me.
Labels in general suck. It may be helpful in a search engine and for marketing but not much else.
What are your thoughts on belonging to a certain ‘group’ in a lingerie sense? Do you like retro lingerie but don’t fit the pin up mould? Like wearing bralettes and you’re a 34H? Or like me do you suffer from stupid thoughts about size when really IT DOESN’T MATTER!!!!???? Leave a comment below.
