For as long as I can remember, my breasts have been a burden. My bra journey started when I was in the 3rd grade, and my mom made it clear that I could no longer substitute an undershirt for a much-needed training bra.


When I was 13, I got my first real bra measurement at Victoria's Secret and was told that I wore a 34DD. This bra size followed me throughout my dramatic weight fluctuation in high school and college where I learned that I had now officially joined the big titty committee at a whopping 34DDD cup size.

My shirts were not flattering, and I grew increasingly insecure about how my breasts wiggled and jiggled about underneath my shirt. When I was 23, I visited a small bra boutique in Baton Rouge that informed me that my ill-fitting shirts and frequent spillage could likely be accredited to me being incorrectly measured. I learned that you should be fitted for a bra every 6 months, and that I had been long overdue. 10 minutes later, after doing some handiwork with a tape measure, this woman told me with a straight face that I was a 34GG.

Girl, you lying.

I know my breasts are big, but what happened to E and F? How had my breast size jumped so dramatically without me recognizing it, and how TF was I going to buy normal bras? This woman who had just blown my mind completely then strolled out with an array of bras and sizes that I automatically assumed were not my size. But, after I began trying on the different colors and styles, I realized that I had been very wrong about how bras were supposed to fit.

No more spillage, my straps didn't fall, and my shirts fit normally again for the first time in years.

If you're a part of the big titty committee and feel like you've been struggling with your bras, it could very well be your fit that's causing the problem. After you find the best fit, it's up to you to figure out what style bra feels best on your breasts.

I searched and searched until I discovered the fit that's right for me, and currently, that's a 34G with thick straps, minimal cleavage, underwire, and little-to-no padding. I have a large cup and a small band, so it's pretty much impossible for me to find the right size in stores.

Luckily, Amazon has a large selection of bras of all sizes, even mine. Here's a quick review of a few styles that I tried from brands that worked well for me:

Women's Angelina Underwire Vertical Seam Bra by Fantasie, $31.64

Pros:

The color is very pretty, and the lace has a beautiful design. Gives a minimizing effect, much like Freya, and offers support with no spillage.

Cons:

The lace on this bra isn't the most comfortable and the straps aren't fully adjustable. It also seems to run a little tight.

Would you recommend?

Sure, but it's certainly not an everyday bra.
