May I Have Your Attention Please!

Malling. Entering that huge building with a million stores inside and even more people, NOT my thing. Nevertheless, that is where I found myself the other day with my best friend Salena, along with my two kids. Michael and Mina act like they had just entered an amusement park because we are NEVER there. Salena however, would live there if she could do so without being detected.

Now we're there, browsing around. Salena mentions she would like to go look at bras, so it's off to women's apparel. She makes her selections, tried them on and decided that they are the lucky ones that will be going home with her. Mean while, I'm hangin' out with the kids trying to explaining all the frilly, froo-froo things that are hanging everywhere, to a seven year old BOY!

Salena decides, that I must have one of these frilly undergarments and heads off with Mina to find one, on the other side of the store. I'm with Michael, standing among bras that I just can't believe some women fill out. I swear, my family could live in a few of them.

Shortly after her disappearance I hear from across the store, "HEY VICK, YOU'RE A SIZE 34B.....RIGHT?" I'm standing there, with a women and her teenaged daughter next to me. I turned to them, with my mouth open, wide eyes and hands out as if to say "WHAT is she DOING?" I laughed and told them, "Not really something you want shouted from afar, huh?" They giggled. I didn't know where she was in the store, but I shouted back, "Salena, you may as well have said.....HEY VICK, YOU'RE SMALL, RIGHT?" Still standing next to my new underwear shopping friend, I turned to them and shrugged my shoulders saying, "If you can't beat 'em join 'em!" They were now wiping tears out of their eyes. I'll tell you, it's quite a warm feeling, knowing that you can cause such laughter with your bust size.

I left the store with nothing but the firm realization that numbers read no larger than those of a 14 year old girl, lol!

“You know it's a bad day when you put your bra on backwards and it fits better."

I was a 34B in 5th grade...you don't want to know what I am now...I come from a long line of big busted women.

LOL! I am in the same boat. I think I am a 34B but since two kids I might be smaller. I haven't really measured.

Not something I would want the whole store to know.

Ahhh...don't you love it when friends or, God forbid, DH wants to help you shop for stuff like that! At least she didn't shout "you're a size 38D?" which is exactly what would happen to me!

I am not kidding you when I say I don't fill a AA. Most stores don't even carry my size! I have to shop in the training bra section of the store!!

It just made me cry with laughter to imagine you in such a situation...

Btw, I love Malling too. It's because, perhaps, here, it still is a relatively new phenomenon

That is hilarious!!! That is something that would happen to me! I love your blog. Now, What do you do if one is a c and the other a b? Still haven't found the perfect bra for that one!

I'm with you. I was less than an A before the twins, got up to C at my most engorged, and now I'm back down to a B. Disappointing isn't it. Cest la vie.

My husband used to say ... more than a handful's too much !! Oops, too much information ?!?!
When I am slim, I am only an A cup, but these days, C & D are feeling more comfy !!!
Boobs, bras ... shame we need to wear them ... men have got more freedom, don't you think !!
Take care, Meow
