If you’ve met me in real life or seen photos of me, you know that I have a set of knockers.
Yes, I mean boobs.
It’s hereditary and my genes gave with two hands of tissue to create mine. Lucky me.
My small-chested friends say they’re jealous but really the grass isn’t greener on the other side.
More boobs, more problems.
One of these problems includes finding supportive bras and, well even just fitting in some clothes. Some button down shirts make me look like I’m “hulking” out of them in the chest.
So, in talking to a fellow big chested friend, I decided it was time to invest in some new undergarments but was very clear about how I would survive this horrific shopping experience.
“I need to find someone with the same boob vision as me.”
Basically, this means finding a saleswoman who is also big chested so we’re speaking the same language.
I went to a fitting once at Nordstrom with a small chested woman and she literally said, “I don’t know what to do with you.”
They’re boobs dear, not grenades.
Then, a friend told me about another store in Chicago that specializes in fittings for women sizes A-N. Clearly, this caters to women who may also feel insecure about their chests, like I do.
The fitting took about an hour and the woman listened to my irrational insecurities and issues and then came back with a few to try on. She even complimented me on my “voluminous” chest. Well, thank you.
Finding bras when you’re full chested is not the sexiest feeling. Especially when you see magazine photos of women who look great in them, but it never translates to your chest.
That said, I found one that worked for me. Sure, it was expensive but if I’m going to keep this chest, I need to feel good about it, and this helped me feel that way.
Boobs are expensive yo, but finding someone who shares your boob vision is priceless.
