I wanted some more sports bras so I don't have to worry about running out of clean bras when I want to go to the gym, so I ordered a few bras online last week as Lane Bryant had a buy two get two sale. It has been so long since I've purchased new bras that I completely forgot what size I wear. Unfortunately, I erred on the side of too small. Two sizes too small. The sports bras don't even come close to closing and the other two normal bras fit but very, very snugly.
After my initial reaction of shock and disappointment (and grabbing the bra I had just taken off to check the size and then measuring myself for good measure) I was set to return them to the store in exchange for larger sizes but now I'm thinking of keeping them. I have four decent sports bras which will get me through a week of gym visits before I have to do laundry, and one or two that aren't the best choice for high impact cardio but will work in a pinch if needed. As I keep going to the gym, I will need smaller bras eventually... Or maybe I should take them back and get one sports bra and one regular bra in the correct size, and one of each in the next size down to shrink into... I just hate the idea of spending good money on bras in my current size when I'll only be needing them for another month or so.
