My cup runneth over

This weekend I kept seeing the commercials for Victoria's Secret new "Miraculous" bra. It claims to add two full cup sizes...TWO! As someone whose cup is literally already overflowing I balked at this. Dear lord help me, if I had two extra cup sizes I'm be into letters of the alphabet that should never, I repeat never represent a bra size.

I've always been pretty well endowed in that department, but lately they seem a bit outta control. I blame it on the few extra pounds I've found...they seem to have all settled in one place. My husband certainly isn't complaining. My mother even did a double take saying if she didn't know otherwise she'd think I was pregnant. Not the case. So you can imagine my surprise when I get an email from Victoria Secret today once again advertising their new bra. Sizes AA-DD. This sucker goes all the way to DD?! Has Vicky gone crazy? Why in the world would anyone who is already a DD need TWO extra cups worth?!?

two extra cup sizes and i might literally give myself black eyes just going up the stairs. what's a DD plus two cup sizes anyway? craziness!

Suzanne said...

HAHAH! I have the opposite problem. Any extra weight I have lands sqarely on my ass and starts to challenge Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and J.Lo. in the bootylicious department. Needless to say, I married an ass-man so he doesn't really complain lol. But yes, two cups is quite a lot especially for those of you who are already busty

you know what they should really advertise for...bras that fit right because i swear my girls are constantly poppin out everywhere!

i love vicky's but only because the bras are pretty but i'm no model and 2 extra sizes is a big fat no thank you from me.

Um, I'd actually LOVE two extra sizes. I have a gold membership to the itty bitty titty committee!! ;)

haha... hilarious. maybe i need to be investing in that bra... my cup does not runneth at all, it's more like my cup sprung a leak and drained completely.

I'm shocked that this bra even goes up to a DD. I don't know why anyone would need to be bigger than that! I think this will probably be great for A and B cups. I just need a bra that keeps 'em up and in :)

Allison said...

Ohhwee. Yeah, that is a bad idea.

Jane said...

I have thought the sane thing on those DD bras that claim 2 sizes bigger! It's like do you really want to be a EE?!

Gwen said...

I feel your pain. When I started gaining weight last year the chest got huge!!! Now that I'm losing weight they seem to be staying. I think they should make a bra to make a DD look (and feel) like a B/C. LOL!!!

XOXO

P.S. Hope to see you Saturday. :D

Elizabeth Marie said...

AHAH! Boobs unite!!! I dont get those bra's either!!!

Brittany Ann said...

I'll admit. I have the opposite problem, and that commercial haunted me all weekend, telling me to buy, buy, buy!

But two cup sizes is a lot on any woman, and I'm a little intimidated.

I can only imagine adding on to bigger busts.

Whoa. Just whoa.

Annie said...

See, I have the exact opposite problem. I went there today and actually tried it on. I was impressed. I didn't think it was everything they said it was but it was pretty good!
