I've been needing new bras for awhile, and I know I've changed shape, so I went to a lingerie shop and got measured.

I'm down two band sizes.


Not that they fit perfectly - they didn't have A-cups in my size. Very few places do. Justmysize taunted me with a banner advertising A-cup bras, except when I went to order, they were on back-order. And padded. So I gave up and got more B-cups. I can ALMOST fill them.

Good thing I don't need a lot of support, right? Of course, that's because I AM that small.

However, when I put my shirt on over the new bra, I looked so much better - less sloppy. Definitely time for new bras in new size.

New size. Wow.

Of course I don't know what your new two-steps-down band size is (quite a thing, though, isn't it?, having a bra that fits? [g] yay for you, I know that feels great), but FigLeaves does an A cup up to size 40 (and B above that, and they're having a 70% off sale on a lot of stuff just now) and Bare Necessities does an A cup up to size 56. Keep in mind that cup size fluctuates as a function of band size (the girl at Nordstrom a week or so ago told me this was "a common misconception", but then demonstrated she didn't know what she was talking about when she said G was smaller than F) - when your current bra is too big in the band, if the cups still fit the same, you'll want to go down a band size and up a cup size (or, in your case, if the cups are currently a little too big, go down a band size and stay in the same cup size, and they should fit fine). Of course if the cups are also looser at the same time the band is looser, then you'd want to stay in the same cup size (or in your case go down - i.e. get an A for sure if you could find it).

I adore new bras that fit. It's kind of a life-changing thing, isn't it?
