Is it just me, or is bra shopping just the worst? Seriously, why is it so hard?
Also I have a theory, that my bras take turns hanging out with my stray socks. They’re having some sort of party in a dark closet somewhere, plotting my inevitable insanity. I know I bought enough for each day of the week last year! Where did they all go?!
Let’s get personal here, I am a 38B, and for some reason that size is extremely popular. Or is it? Are all bra sizes popular and shops just stock one of each type? Or maybe because I’m getting the ones without an underwire, they only have larger sizes?
Whatever the reason, bra shopping is torture for me. The other day, I took Jack with me to Kohl’s and I told him, look for 38B. And he was like wow, you are big! I’m like, Jack I am really not big, that’s not big at all. Then he was like, I have 30B, and I said no, 38, and he said wow you really are big.
Then when he said that he found 38DD, I told him no, I need B. And he said, wow, you’re small! Now, he’s seven and doesn’t understand the difference between strap size and cup size, nor does he know that saying I’m a large strap size and a small cup size, could be seen as rude. But, bruh, it really isn’t helpful.
I was able to find one bra in my size in the style I like. ONE! So the next day, I went online, because certainly they have my size and style everywhere on the internet. And you know what? They don’t! Kohl’s was sold out, JC Penny was charging $42 a piece, and the only place that had them was Amazon. Surprise, surprise. And even Amazon was slim pickings.
So between the bras and underwear (yeah, apparently I’m a popular size there too), I spent over $200 on Amazon and bought seven of each. This way I have one for each day of the week, and I won’t have to buy them again until they literally fall apart.
Phew! I’m exhausted.
Am I alone here? Is bra shopping torture for all women?
