Bra, lift us up where we belong!
Do you have back-boob? Do you vacay in Sag City? Does your oft-laundered bra have the texture of a topographical map?
After chowing at P.F. Chang's with a girlfriend Monday, we stopped at Soma for a field study - earlier, I had espoused the ever-loving merits of a molded cup. While there, we decided to get a fitting.
I'm not gonna lie - it was a little awkward. We were fully clothed, but the sales girl whipped out her boob tape measure in the middle of the store. It was the perfect time for my HIGH SCHOOL CRUSH, my DAD, or my BOSS to walk by en route to PRETZEL TIME.
Turns out, I've been wearing the right size. My friend, however, had been going a whole size too small. Just by measuring, she gained a cup, sans pectoral exercise, scalpels or bags of saline! A holiday miracle!
Many bras at Soma run in the $40 dollar range, but they're super comfy and cute. Maybe just ask the sales clerk to measure your girls behind the clearance rack or something.
