Still here? Alright, today's mini rant is on the subject of.... BOOBS! As in, I used to have at least a semblance of them, and now they're off somewhere gallivanting in space with the unicorns and pegasi or something.

Seriously, I've been called the boobless wonder or mistaken for a pretty long-haired boy half my life. Aged 15, I finally got to the point where a SMALL A-cup would fit, and I was sooo happy. Victoria's Secret, here I come! (before, I was limited to horribly itchy French lace stuff, because that was the only thing available in AA or smaller that didn't look like it had been designed by a male kindergarten student)

Now, working out with M and strength training more, my boobs have somehow decided that sticking around wasn't worth it and went off into La-La land with whomever they thought more worthy. As in, my bras don't fit anymore. Not only do I have to do the hated jeans shopping (my thunder thighs, which won't ever go away because they're mostly muscle built in years and years of fencing and genetic predisposition toward storing whichever fat reserves I have in them, make that IMPOSSIBLE. Going to try a custom jeans-tailoring company that's not a lot more expensive than my usual go-to's, because H&M and co. just don't tailor for my shape), I also have to find new underwear.

So, while out scouting for a new washing machine yesterday, I went searching for bras too, because when scrambling into an outfit and not finding any clean underwear that fits, restoring some semblance of being a responsible and pulled-together adult sort of becomes a priority. Anyway, off to the first department store: IN EUROPE, ALMOST EVERY SINGLE F-ING COMPANY STARTS WITH A F-ING B-CUP!

I know that that has been the salvation of several of my very generously endowed nemeses in HS, but seriously: US SMALLER-CHESTED WOMEN WANT UNDERWEAR TOO! I don't want to run around wearing sticky tape only all the time (not that I've done that yesterday, noooo)!

So, I've gone from a 34 to a 32 (33 really, but I can wear a 32 band) despite my rather wide ribcage. My shoulders look ginormous and my boobs have disappeared. Not feeling very attractive at all currently... sigh. I knew something was going to happen, because I've been feeling almost comfortable in my body last week.

Now, here goes the old song and dance: The only stuff I found was horribly itchy French lace or sports bra lookalikes. Or something designed for thirteen year-olds.

RAGE!

Well, I'll be able to take it all out on the court in tonight's game. Going to play a little tennis, then go on to a league volleyball game. At least there I don't feel like a non-woman.

    I'll give you mine. I can't get anything that fits correctly. I am actually a C cup but measure as if I were a DD. It's the weirdest thing. But I'd be just as happy not to have them - lol.

    You may have lost your breasts but not your sense of humor!

If you don't need much support, how about looking into a stretchy lace bandeau bra?

Here's one that has padding...

They look great with a semi-sheer turtle neck top... or off the shoulder tops.

Alternately you might want to look into silicone forms for those times when you want more up top. Just put "silicone breast enhancers" into your search engine.

Actually... you may not need a bra at all... but if you wants something that's barely there, why not try a stretchy nylon microfiber bra?

    I sympathize. if my "girls" move any further south, they'll be in Australia!

Have you had a professional bra fitting? Everyone I know who's had one has been thrilled with the results. it might be the best way to find the fit you need.
