You know that Jackie Wilson song, “Your love is lifting me higher… than I’ve ever been lifted before.” Well friends, I have been singing the same tune with modified lyrics almost every time I put on my new bras. “Oh this bra… is lifting me higher.. than I’ve ever been lifted before.” I think that Chris is waiting for the joke to get old to me, but I can’t help but sing it almost every morning. You see friends…..
I went bra shopping. Not normal Kara bra shopping which consists of picking through TJ Max in hopes that something will fit me (usually with kids in tow). I decided that after finishing nursing kid #3, it was time for a boob lift of a natural variety…a.k.a… a bra that actually fits me right. I headed down to our local bra shop downtown, Donna Bella and it was a lovely experience. My friend Melissa works there, and she happened to be working, so she helped me out a ton. Great customer service.
I am a pretty well endowed person, and I was really excited to find out that I have been wearing a bra that is too big for me for years (even before I ever had kids). Sorry for tmi, but I found out that my 36D bras should actually be 32 or 34 C. Um duh… no wonder my bras haven’t been supporting me very well (I was measured at Victoria secret after finishing nursing #2 and told that I was a 36D). Were the bras at Donna Bella a splurge considering their price compared to what I have previously owned? They were, but now that I have really nice bras that offer good support, I don’t think that I will ever be going back to target or TJ Max.
When was the last time that you were fitted for a bra? Where have you had success finding good bras (brands etc…)?
Next on my list is to find a good sports bra. I have one decent one, but I am in desperate need of a good one.
