Bras . . . Yeah That's What I Said .

I pretty much live in sports bras...seeing how my profession kinda requires that I support them.

But I want to take you back about a year. I had finished breast feeding Bubsy a couple months prior and I really needed new feminine bras that made me feel good about myself.

I have always gone to Victoria's Secret and had good experiences. Well, I knew my breasts had gotten smaller and I was going to have to be measured again. Unfortunately I went shopping on an extremely busy day, the store was so hot, I noticed myself getting flustered when I was being shuffled from one sale person to the next. I almost started to cry. Here I am trying to find a cute/sexy bra after having a baby and no one is willing to help.

The manager saw the near tears in my eyes and measured me herself. Somehow I had majorly shrunk. I was not a 32C. So they gave me so many bras to try on, again I almost felt overwhelmed. Meanwhile Lew was out wondering with Will and I could hear Will crying, so I gave up and got the first bras I tried on not thinking if I felt comfortable in them.

Have you done that before? Just given in to somebody waiting for you or because you are so overwhelmed with choices, you just get flustered and give up?

So now I am in that boat again. I feel like the bras that I got pretty much sucked and I hate wearing them, so I have reverted back to bras that I got at Target. Nothing wrong with a Target bra but I just wanted something that was going to make me feel good.

If you don't mind me asking, where do you do your bra shopping and are you happy? Is there a brand you like that I should know about? Because my girls are ready for a new and pretty bra to make me feel better.

I would LOVE to wear pretty bras but I'm as flat as a mancake! They don't make anything pretty for me. :(

Major boobie shrinkage after the twins...and I have breast implants! You can't even tell anymore!! I used to buy the pretty VS bras, but I really do find some pretty ones at Target. And Kohls. Kohls has a huge selection and they always seem to be on sale. Good luck to you (and the girls!)

no words of advice here.. I go with support and there isn't anything really cute when your trying to keep them under control :-P

I totally would have cried and then picked the first one too!

I have zero boobs, and always have. So bra shopping has never been a priority for me. I know what you mean about the selection at Target, though. I typically find mine at a dept store. Also, are there any specialty stores in your area? I remember there was some independent undergarments store where I grew up and I got my bridal stuff there. And here in Memphis there's something similar called Fitting Place or something.

LOL @Blue Violet... yeah, I could so shop in the teen 'buy your first bra here' section.

I have bought some at VS, Target, Wal-Mart, Sears, etc. I haven't found a comfortable/pretty one yet.

I have a Warner I love. Thanks for stopping by.

Ugh, boobs. I hate my boobs and my bras. Nothing fits right. I've gone to a million and one places...there is a specialty intimates store here...I'm sure they are outrageous, but they do the fitting and everything--plus it seems more personal rather than getting shuffled around in a huge dept store. I'll let you know how that turns out!

Good luck, hun. Who knew bra shopping could and would be so traumatizing for us moms?!

I LOVE bras! I have very big boobs and when I was pregnant and nursing they walked into a room before I did. Bras are so important. I usually go to VS...but I have found some great bras at JCPENNY'S, Dillards etc. I actually really like the Wonder Bra...the kind that they sell without the padding though. Anyhow, I am now your newest follower, I look forward to getting to know you better.
