lennavan: BlackArt: Actually it is a hard problem. Most women wear the wrong bra size.

I went shopping with my wife and daughter and they found a place in Portland that they could buy bras that actually fit and were comfortable. The amazing thing is that the woman who owned the place could look at a woman and tell her what size she should be wearing no matter what she was wearing. While I was waiting I saw her do this with a half-a-dozen women and got it right every time. It was like one of those guess your weight guys at a carnival, but with a real function.  (The place is called "The Pencil Test". Expensive, but worth it according to everyone I have talked to who shops there.)

And yes, I got a lot of weird stares by being the only guy there.

No, those stares were because you were with your daughter.  And yeah, that IS weird.


Because dad's never do laundry and see those filthy filthy things? It's his daughter buying a piece of clothing she needs. He was sitting on the one loan chair they leave out for just these events or standing around bored waiting for the ladies to finish in the dressing room, not all up in there helping her hook that contraption up.

Cup_O_Jo: I am actually like DD is a standard for supermodels?


I'm actually like you don't know how to read?

They didn't say "super models" they said "glamour models".

"Glamour model" is a fancy name for "page three girl".  People like Katie Price and Anna Nicole Smith - the trashy fake tan big tits you see in men's magazines.
 
2013-03-04 11:24:12 PM
Yeah cause I'm going to walk into Victoria's Secret and ask for a 28JJJ or whatever the hell this woman is trying to tell me is a "real" size.  If it feels and looks okay than I'm fine wearing my "incorrectly" sized bra.  I love hearing a woman that looks like she needs a training bra tell me she's a D cup.  Unless it spills over your hand when you cup it you're not a D cup.

Cup_O_Jo: Anastacya: I wish that there was a bra school near here that I could go to. I would love to have someone measure me and give me an accurate size. And the theory that women don't think that they can be bigger than a super model is somewhat... weird.

/also waiting for the "fat" comments

I am actually like DD is a standard for supermodels? Seriously? That explains why I can't find a bra that fits. They seem like they are all made for fake boobie people. Size 2 women do not have DD boobies.


Some of us do :)  Not all that common but not all that rare either.

Explodo: DemDave: who worked in the bra section of a high-end department store. She had quite the disdain for Victoria's Secret. Apparently

Victoria's Secret bras seem to mostly be designed for their models...skinny chicks with fake boobs.  My sister-in-law has big fake boobs and hers are about the same size as my wife's big real boobs.  VS bras fit big fakes, not big reals.


Fit me just fine.  Key is finding the right style.  Go to the Body by Victoria section if you a D-DDD.  Any pushup styles there are a no-no.  It's really not as hard as people make it out to be.  They have a million styles, not all of them work for everyone.

dragonchild: ph0rk: Sorry, just trying to work out the causal path there. Can't come up with one that doesn't involve a renn fair or goth club.

Well it's not "casual" as in "mainstream", but the gals I'm talking about are anime cosplayers.  I'm on staff at a convention and the hours can get long.  So, what's a busty lady to do when she's going to be on her feet for 16 hours a day?  Pack a corset and strap it on once the aches start aching.


Just FYI, but "causal path" wasn't a typo for "casual".  Think "the path starting at the cause and leading to the effect".
