Stupid Breast

Rate this Entry
So, apparently, I've always been a super busty girl and didn't know it. Here I was, trying to fit myself into 36B's (US) this whole time, when I should have been trying something much larger: 36F's (aka, 36DDD's).

Now, I suppose I should have seen the signs. I can't fit into shirts with built in bras as I can't even fit them over my chest, I'm literally spilling out of my current bras, my significant other loves throwing peanuts down my shirt from across the room while watching movies, and the underwires are stabbing me in unspeakable, painful places. It's... actually quite uncomfortable, bordering upon painful.

Personally, I blame pornography and cartoons for my misconceptions. Here I was thinking that DDD/F cups were these humongous glands of which you could carry out entire miniature strategy campaigns over, as that's how they present them in such works. Now I can only come to two conclusions. Either they just say, 'triple D,' in such things because triple D sounds much more impressive than H, or J cup, both of which are larger and more size appropriate, and men, ignorant of such things, can't tell the difference (and in comics, men tend to write them, and don't understand breast size so they write whatever they think sounds right and end up coming way off base when what they draw is actually something much larger)... or those women are just tiny with larger breast. I mean, a 26E will look a lot more impressive than 36F. My other conclusion is that because of such misconceptions pushed upon me by the media, I assumed that there was no way I could be larger than a B cup simply because they just didn't look that large, my inane height be damned!

Now, I sit here glaring at bras prices. Why are you so ****ing god ****ed expensive?! Argh!

    I just finished watching a funny Web series and this is a good excuse to share it.

    I have mixed feelings about the content of this blog. I think I like it, though. >_>

    On a size and cup related note, I once saw a site featuring Asian H-Cups. Unfortunately, what you described in just slapping on sizes was pretty much the case, because they were like, half as big as the chicks' bodies.

    Is it bad that I enjoyed reading this? ._.

    Uh, good luck finding a better bra... ^^;

    Didn't your school ever teach you how to measure bra sizes during sex ed? And don't bra labels usually have measuring guides? And aren't there millions of online resources? o_0

    Not saying the media doesn't distort what one considers "busty" with their grossly inaccurate measurements, but...wearing the wrong size for that long could be bad for your health! D:

    Umm... well, no. Then again, I missed gradeschool sex ed because my mom thought it was of Lucifer (seriously. My dad let me go to the other ones when they divorced). Supposedly, they taught you to add 4 inches to the underbust and then go off of that. At the time, that basically meant that I was a 40AAAA because my overbust at the time was smaller than my supposed band size. Needless to say, most bra labels have incorrect sizing systems; and US bra companies rarely even follow their own guides. Actually, even most online measuring guides fail as they use the aforementioned system, which leads to picking bras with cups far too small and band sizes far too large. For example, I have a 38A bra in my closet that definitely doesn't fit (and I followed their guide) because it slips over me when I raise my arms in the air, and other such things when running... oh yes, and their cups were way too small.

    What you're actually supposed to do is measure your underbust directly below the root of your breast, and that becomes your band size. Then, you lean over and measure around your breast at the largest point. For each inch over your band size, your cup size goes up a letter. So a 1" difference would be an A, 2" a B, 3" a C, so on and so forth. I found out the bandsize thing myself, but the cup system seemed, well... wrong, because I honestly didn't think I looked that big.

    Still blame porn.

    I almost wrote a letter to the editor of the Mass Effect Xenophilic Fanzine Fornax (based off of the magazine you can find in game). It was clearly written by men who had NO concept of breast size at all. They would sometimes list the measurements of the characters. One was listed as B/W/H of 38/28/34 and then said their breast size was a 38DDD... yeah, no, that's not how it works at all.

    You would figure that men, being so obsessed about breast as a whole, would at least be able to label breast sizes correctly. Nope. Fascinated, but too dumb to actually understand.

    Still, if they were obviously too small and painful, it probably would have been best to just see what was comfortable. No one has to know your size except you, there shouldn't be a denial factor attached to it XD

    For instance, according to shoe manufacturers, I'm a size 6.5. There's no way in hell I can squeeze my feet into something that small, I have to wear 7.5. It's what feels the most comfortable for me. And the size varies with shoe types (I usually wear smaller dress shoes and larger sneakers).

    Yeah. I don't know what it is about american clothing manufacturers, but they cannot figure out how size is supposed to work. There is absolutely no standardisation at all. I'm a very tall woman (200cm/6'7"), and so I only buy shoes based off of the European sizes because they're actually standardised. I'm a 48EU (which is somewhere around a 14D or 15D US Men's). Now, when I go look for shoes, whenever I see a 14D, I pick it up and check inside... sometimes it's a 48, sometimes it's a 47, or a 46. Sometimes not even their 15D's are a 48EU, but smaller.

    Honestly, I have no clue why it's like this, but it makes searching for clothing rather frustrating.

    It could work like that if your breasts were attached to your hips...
