The New Bra


I actually stopped breastfeeding my son about a month ago. One of the things I was looking forward to about stopping breastfeeding was going out and getting new bras that actually fit. For the past year, I’ve been wearing sleep-nursing bras, which offer no support and are basically small, glorified t-shirts. I also had no idea what bra size I was. It really depended on the time of day and when the baby last ate. I remember ordering a swimsuit online last year, and chatting with the customer service rep. She asked for my measurements, and I was able to give her my hip and waist measurements easily, but the bust? Not so much. So, now when I wear clothes I’ll at least know if they’ll remain family-friendly in a few hours.
