I was shopping yesterday and got a chance to take a peek at this girl trying on clothes because she'd left the fitting room's door open. She had big breasts, IMO something around a 34K in UK size. The band of her bra wasn't riding up, that would be an understatement... it was sitting a few inches below her neck!! And of course, the straps were biting down into her shoulders big time. I felt so sorry for her, she reminded me of myself before I began my journey in the "proper fitting" land. What's worse, her bra looked like one of those you can find in specialized stores, and they should know how a bra is supposed to fit! There's just so much ignorance here in Italy, and it makes me so mad! Another example: a while ago my mom told me she'd found a store here in my area which stocks bras for big-busted women, and reluctantly (because I had a feeling what would happen) I decided to give it a try. The lady there tried to put me into a 36E, while I'm a 32GG in most styles. Go figure, it wasn't a good fit at all, even though she tried to convince me otherwise. Ahhhhhrgh!!!!
