This situation is getting out of hand.
The day we got our BFP, I fit happily in a 34C from Victorias Secret. I LOVE their Very Sexy line, and was pleased as punch when I found it years ago, since this was the first bra I'd really ever been able to find that actually FIT me when I was stil in As and Bs.
By 8 weeks, I noticed that my bra wasn't fitting correctly all of a sudden. So off to VS I went to get measured. Holy moley, 32D. I never in my life thought I would fit into a D. I literally wore an A until I was about 23. I magically grew to a B right around then, and slowly filled out a C by the time I hit 25.
The more pregnant I got, I noticed that my chest was keeping up with the bump. I thought to myself that there is no way I am going to keep paying for VS (though I love them so much!) if I need a new bra each trimester. So at 28 weeks I headed to Target, and tried a few on. Lo and behold, 34DD. Yes, a DOUBLE D cup. I thought a D cup was bad! Just FYI, DD is the largest cup size VS even makes. So....
At around 34 weeks, I realized that I was going to need a nursing bra. So I bit the bullet and bought one online, in one size up. For those just skimming the post, that brings us up to a 34 E cup. I really don't have the vocabulary to express how surreal it was to order a 34 E. I thought there was no way my life was going to get any weirder (in regards to my bra size, of course).
Until I outgrew that bra.
When I headed to the Motherhood Maternity outlet near me I discovered they don't carry my size. So I packed up my son and crossed town to Destination Maternity. They were helpful, cheery, polite and knowledgeable. I can't say enough about how great the staff was there. It really helped take the sting out of my purchase. Yes, faithful readers, I am the (not so) proud owner of a 34 F nursing bra. Where has reality gone?
