WARNING- possible TMI so beware!
Yesterday I decided that it was time to get a proper bra fitting. I hadn't had a proper fitting since I lost the weight.
Here is a little background info. About 12 years ago I had a reduction since I had horrible back pain due to having a 36FF chest. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and always recommend women to look into it if they are in a lot of pain. After I had the surgery, I went down to a 36D. When I was at my highest weight I went up to a 40 D.
All of this with a 5'0 frame. Not only is it a pain to find clothes that fit because I was overweight but it was harder finding clothes that would accommodate my chest.
I was able to go to a certain lingerie store and had a proper fitting. It was wonderful.
She helped me get my new measurements and was able to find the bras that would fit me. I was in the changing room and it didn't even bother me that she saw me in my bra without a shirt.
A couple of years ago I would have been horrified to have some one see me like that. I felt great with my new found bra knowledge. I was even happier with my increase in self esteem and positive self image. As soon as I get a job I will be going on a crazy bra shopping frenzy.
