I have been hit by motivation. The realization that if you want something, you have to make it happen. This time around it's the get-healthy-work-out-and-lose-some-more-weight bug which means none other than needing some new stuff: shorts, shoes and sports bra. The first two are no problem, but that last one is what nightmares are made of.
Knowing full well that my drawer full of bras are totally worn out, worthless and no longer even fit me I had to take measurements of the girls. This is what gets me completely depressed. Sure, there are many women out there who pay big bucks for huge boobs. I, however, am not one of them. My girls are real and they have totally screwed up my back. I see a reduction in my future.... anyway - with measuring I was rather horrified to read the measurements. Typing the numbers into JCPenney.com's site they to try a, size way bigger than I thought I'd need. It's gonna take more than luck to find a bra that doesn't kill my back, under arms or shoulders and actually holds the girls up.
Let's see.... now there's this one which ~ honestly now - is that gonna hold up with exercise? Yeah, I think not... but I am diggin' the price. Maybe for an every day type of deal? I don't know.
Then there's the Enell - loved by Oprah and others priced at a not so kind $54. Cripes. I am obviously in the wrong business. They're going for less on eBay... but dern! $47 plus shipping. *gasp*
I am, basically, screwed. I have to cave and buy something that will work. I'm used to spending a crazy amount on a bra because even when I'm smaller, I'm not nearly small enough to buy anything in Victoria's Secret, which means I'm not small enough to buy any $10-$15 bra elsewhere. Le sigh.
Wish me luck. I'm going to have to hit the mall tomorrow to see what's local (which will be nothing I'm sure). That will bring on another wave of depression... but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do and what's the point in ordering something online if I'm not even sure it will fit. I'll at the very least make sure that I do, indeed, need a bra that big. Do they even call them bra's at that enormous size?!
