My birthday was last Friday and I decided to go shopping and get a little sexy number for my birthday. I went to the mall and found 3 dresses for work at New York and Company (store closing so they were only $11 each!). Didn't find anything at Torrid. Wasn't feeling super shoppy there. Lane Bryant didn't have anything on clearance i could afford. Express had a bright stripy dress in the window. It was very different then what I normally wore so I figured I'd try, not that i thought they'd fit. The young lady was so happy to help. She said while we didn't have that dress in anything but a small. I can find some other dresses for you to try on. SO she loaded me up with dresses and sent me to the fitting room. I had a great day trying them on cause they fit. Yes some didn't look great but they fit. And I was so happy.

The dress I landed on was a really tiny number. Low V-neck, short skirt. I loved it and it looked great on me! It had one problem. It needed a bra i didn't own. So I went and bought a new bra. Down to Victoria Secret I go because i know Lane Bryant doesn't have that style in store, and Soma is too expensive.

Bra measuring is not an exact science. When I worked at LB I always went tight on the band warning people that it wasn't exact and things change. I measured as a 37. So she suggested that it'll be a 38DD/DDD since I was right between the two cups (straps only come in even sizes). I try on the 38DD and the cups fit fine (like i knew they would) but the sales girl thought the strap was really loose so she asked me to try on the 36DDD. I did. It fits so amazing. I'm now in an even better mood. She grabs me a few bra choices for the low V dress. I found the perfect bra a strap size lower!
