Almost every time I see wearing-bra pictures for 28E/30DD bras, my first thought is "Crap, the cups must run large," because I don't think I have that much breast volume. I only just now realized that perhaps I am still affected by self-image issues about my breasts pre-r/abtf; that maybe I struggle to recognize my actual breast volume on other people because it doesn't line up with what I see in the mirror after too many years of hating my breasts for being too small.
Three years ago, the first time I tried on an unlined bra in my "new" size, was when I was finally able to start to love my breasts. These simple seamed bras were able to make my breasts look more shapely and even larger than my ill-fitting 32As that squashed all my tissue out to the side. I cannot even put into words how thankful I am for having learned about real bra fitting and having communities like you guys at my disposal!
Thanks everyone for reading, this is a very-late-night realization when I should be sleeping, LOL.
