Speaking of sizes...
Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Before I begin, let me just say that I love all of the Moving Comfort products I have used and would be happy finding a gift certificate in my stocking. I'm not picking on the company, per se, so much as adding to the dialog of clothing sizes for women.
A few years ago I ran religiously, and was 3-4 sizes and 40 lb smaller than I am now. I bought (ordered actually, they didn't have bigger sizes) a REAL running bra from my local running store. It was a bit snug, but I wore it and it was great for motion control.
So I was wondering the other day, how long before I can wear it again?? My ribcage is 40 inches around, and the tag says 38...but then I remembered how tight it was when I was much smaller. My tape measure was handily located on my dresser so I grabbed it and measured the band and
WHAT??? The size 38DD has a 32 inch band?? How can that be right?!?!
So, needless to say, I'm a bit flabbergasted and won't be wearing that bra for a while. I guess I'll get a new, bigger one (more ordering) and have that bra to look forward to.
To offset what may be seen as negative, I would like to say that it is a Maia model and it was lovely and comfortable. When it fit.
