My Girls Need a Lift

My friend posted this picture on my Facebook timeline. Nothing like seeing yourself from behind to let you know you desperately need a new bra. Unfortunately, I already knew that. I mean, look at my lats hanging over the top of my bra strap?!  (We'll pretend that's my lats and not some far.)  But I enjoy going bra shopping about as much as I enjoy going to the gynecologist. I know I've blogged about bra shopping before and how I absolutely hate it, but I think it was back in 2009 when I blogged every single day and I just can't find the post.

Anyway, today is the day I am going to go bra shopping. I'm dreading it with a passion. Why is it that retail stores carry ginormous bras for the overly endowed, but don't carry a thing for the itty bitty titties? Last night I tried to shop online but if you don't know exactly what you're looking for it's hard to buy a bra without trying it on.  I think that this is going to be a waste of my time.  I've tried Macy's.  I've been to Victoria Secret.  Kohl's gives me hives.  The best bra I ever bought was Wacoal.  It was expensive but fit well and besides my boobs looking fake in it, I still where it on occasion.  But, I think that was a lucky find at Macy's.

So I'm asking for help from you all.  I knew there are tiny runners/triathletes who read my blog.  And I know you where a bra.  Where do you shop?  What brands/styles do you like?  Help me, help me, help me!  I'm desperate!

I'm a 32B (technically a 30B), and I buy the t-shirt bras from the Victoria's Secret Pink line (for teenagers). They fit great and don't have any of that extra padding!

Sad to say that I have adopted the no "real" bra philosophy to life..Not starting out with much,then nursing four children, and then taking up endurance sports(particularly running)has not been good to the fullness of the girls. Teenagers have more than me.I live in sports bras, things that look like sports bras, tops with built in bras, or sometimes nothing at all.

If any of you suggestions pan out, let me know as there are occasions where sports bras just won't do. ;)

You cut your hair? I guess from the header I just thought it was longer. I like Calvin Klein; they are a little bit expensive, but worth it.

After your underwear shopping adventures, I'm looking forward to pics of you bra shopping and Dave wearing a gigantic bra as a helmet in the store.

Make it happen.
