Bra Size Changes
Because I’ve continued to slowly lose weight over the past year, my body has also seen some of my skin shrink. I didn’t actually expect this because every time I’ve had my body size change in the past, my boobs have always gotten bigger. This time they have gotten smaller and I’m happy about it, except it’s been challenging to find my size! Nordstrom has been the only place I could go for fittings and they did a terrible job, putting me into 34band bras that were woefully too big for my measurements. (Read why it is important to get a fitting done if you change size in my Bra Size Changes feature) The ladies in the Lingerie Addicts Facebook group helped me get pointed in the right direction. I found out that my new size is roughly 30FFUK. I’m wearing 30FFUK in Curvy Kate, a 32FUK may also work for me. In USA sizes I should look at 30G/32F.
The most perfect bra that I found in my new size is the Curvy Kate Lifestyle Plunge Bra. I bought it on sale at Amazon and once I tried it on and wore it without having any of the bands or straps dig into me I knew it was love. In addition to my Sephora Birthday Order, I bought 2 other colors in the same style from Bra Stop since they were out of my size on Amazon.
- Curvy Kate Lifestyle Plunge Bra in Petrol Blue – 30FF (this color is on sale for $32 right now in my size)
- Curvy Kate Lifestyle Plunge Bra in Black & Lilac – 30FF (sign up for the Bra Stop newsletter and save 10% on your order)
