A few months ago I posted about a situation at the Gap where they didn’t have my size, and the lady told me there were no smaller sizes (like in the whole wide world). I later found the item online, and ordered it in the next smaller size, which ended up being a 00. I am definitely not a 00, I am more likely a 2. But whatever, if the skirt fits, wear it! (It really was a skirt, ha!)
But, my question is this…why can’t stores just size their clothes according to your actual size? Why in an effort to make people feel better about themselves did they change the sizing of clothes? A doctor that I work with once joked that his wife was a size 2 when they got married 25 years ago and she’s still a size 2, but only because what used to be a size 6 is now a size 2!
Ok, onto Victoria’s Secret. Is it possible that they are doing this too? With your boob size? Come on now, if you’re an A cup, you have to know. You don’t just go into Victoria’s Secret one day and suddenly you’re a B cup, and you believe it. Your boobs didn’t grow, and you know it.
Just after Christmas I went to Victoria’s Secret to get some new bras. I picked my size up off the shelf, tried them on, and every single one of them looked like this:
I was completely busting out of the top of every single bra, no matter what the cup fit was! After the 3rd bra, I turned the call light on for the sales woman to help me. She (unhappily) went and got the next bigger cup size, but it was the same thing. When I showed her the “situation” she said, “I actually think that’s a pretty good fit.” What? Yeah, a pretty good fit for a hooker.
I stupidly ended up buying 2, to see if I felt any different about them when I got them home. I still felt like a prostitute, but what do you know? Shawn thought they were a good fit too!
So, I ended up taking them back, and ordering the same exact bras I had before from Victoria’s Secret online since they didn’t have them in the store. Well, they came today. And, it’s the same thing. Cleavage, and lots of it. I decided to keep them anyway, just in case I decide to make a career change.
