Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Close To Learning Victoria’s Secret

brasSomething funny happened as I got measured for my new bra size. My band size dropped 2 sizes – yahoo! – but my cup size went up. Well this was a puzzler for me as it was for the lady with the tape measure. Perhaps Victoria’s Secret has a completely new meaning.

So what’s a girl to do? I asked The Google.

HT to the blogger at Big Girls Bras for explaining this mystery. Turns out it is very common for women to lose weight around the rib cage faster than lose volume in the breasts. Bra cup sizes scale down as the band size scales down. So a D46 doesn’t have the same cup size as a D42, even though they are both Ds. Much to the dismay of my husband, my breasts didn’t get bigger. My cup size went up to compensate for the same breast volume because my band size shrunk.

Groovy mystery solved.
