My Bra Had a Baby!

As you know, I am on the search for new lingerie.  My bras are too large and my underwear is too old and un-pretty.  Well after being measured, it seems that I am still the same band size (though am close to going down) and down one cup size.  So I checked out Nordstrom's sale department online to see what I could find in my new size.

These are the two bras I received.  THEY ARE THE SAME SIZE.  Same band, same cup.  One is Natori, one is DKNY

Seriously, doesn't it look like Mama Bra & Baby Bra?

Seriously DKNY, WTH?  The Natori fit great and I am actually wearing it today and wore it Saturday.  It made my brown dress fit better because my bust wasn't so… busty.  I couldn't feel it on, and it hides under knits.  Total win.

The DKNY, I put it on just for giggles.  You know how a too-small bra may give you quad boobs from overfill?  Well this bra, I had overfill in my armpits, on top and even under the wires!  Talk about a major FAIL!  A funny fail, but a fail nonetheless.

    Bras are the one thing I never, never buy online. I’ve had this experience in dressing rooms with bras that are the same size but different manufacturers.

    Thanks for a good giggle and an example of how inconsistent bra sizing truly is between brands! Holy cow.

    OOO underarm boob! I got a sports bra from Title IX that did that. It was sex-ay.

    Glad you posted this though. I get a lot of good lingerie advice from you, it seems. I get so flustered when I go to any lingerie dept, that I just buy the same old stuff. Thanks for posting!

    Incredible! But I found the same thing when I ordered bras from both during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale. Like you, I went with the Natori and am loving it.

    Whoa! What’s up with that? Has vanity sizing actually spilled over into lingerie? That’s crazy!
