Once I found my true bra size a little over a year ago, it was like a whole new world opened up for me. I bought a huge beautiful wardrobe of nice bras, mostly Ewa Michalak and Comexim (mostly secondhand, thank goodness).
Then this spring I started making some changes in various aspects of my life in an effort to improve my health, and since then I've lost 40+ pounds (went from a US dress size 16 to a US 6 or 8). I know everyone says it's unlikely you'll lose a ton of weight from the boobs, but that's exactly what happened to me. I went from a reference size 34:10 or 34:11 at my largest point to 32:6 currently. My boobs are a totally different shape now, and look a bit sad and deflated, but I'm much healthier overall which is what matters!
As much as I dislike paying full price for anything, I finally decided there was no way around it anymore and I've ordered several replacement Ewa bras this morning. I am in dire need of beige bras to wear under light shirts for work, so I ordered the pearl BM bra, PL Nugat, and a new S Orzechowa Pralinka. I'm so excited! I've really missed my EM bras, I used to wear them almost every day.
Has anyone else experienced this type of change in size? Any tips? I feel like everything I thought I knew about brands/fit is different now; Freyas were universally too wide for me but in my new cup size they seem to fit fine so I picked up a handful of Deco Vibes the other day. They're all neon colors and feel like boob armor but it's nice to have bras that fit! I'm also really digging half cups at the moment, I just picked up a few Fantasie half cups on eBay.
Also, during this process I've accumulated a ton of bras in the whole spectrum of sizes between 34:11 and 32:5. If you see one listed on my profile that is from my larger days, feel free to send me a message about it. I am behind on measuring all my bras (so I can't list them officially yet) but I have probably 20-30 I need to sell!
