Doubly Delightful...

A couple of days ago I was mourning the loss of my lovely lingerie collection. No, it hasn't been stolen, lost or damaged. It's me... I've lost weight, and my bras no longer fit. Lol, since posting Helga's Underwear Crisis, I've had all sorts of suggestions about what I should do with my now-defunct collection of lacy nothings (or in my case, 40D bits of nothing).

Yesterday I had a rather enjoyable day... it started with lunch with a couple of the Tubbers (I'm a frequent chatter in the Euro Hot Tub), and on my drive home, I decided to bypass my junction off the motorway, and carry on down to The Mall. I was in the mood for a little retail therapy. Admittedly, I was on the hunt for some new trousers, as the ones I was wearing were hanging a little low on the hips, and while I don't like showing off my arse, having baggy trousers over your butt doesn't flatter them either!!

So, I parked my car, and headed off to my favourite clothing store. I found a lovely pair of black trousers, and paid for my purchase, and then decided to head into Marks and Sparks. I'd popped in there once before, and noticed that their lingerie department had much improved since the last time I had ventured in there. Don't get me wrong... there is nothing wrong with owning a few pairs of M&S knickers, but when you've decided that life's too short to wear black, nude or white granny knickers all your life, with bras that offer support, but do nothing in the va-va-voom department, M&S was NOT the place to buy your lingerie!!

However, I digress...

I had a little nosy around the much-improved lingerie department, and found a few frothy bits of nothing in their Per Una range, but in a smaller size. Having been a 40D, I found bras in 38D, and then wandered off to the ladies changing rooms. I tried both bras on, and was a little bemused. The underband measurement was fitting fine, but......... the cups were TOO SMALL!! How was that possible, I wondered? So, I hung the bras back on the hangers, and went off to find a consultant. M&S offer bra measuring facilities, and I decided it was time to make use of them.

A lady with a serious looking measuring tape came back into the changing room with me, and proceeded to place her cold hands around my chest area. Yes, as I had suspected... underband measurement was 38. Next came the big surprise... cup size! Now, what I didn't know was this... when you lose weight, ladies, your underband measurement will naturally become less, but your cup size will increase!!! So, I've gone from being a D cup to a DD!! Lol... and there was I, thinking that my cups were no longer running over!! Lol, they're damn well spilling over the sides!!

So, it was back to the bras, finding the ones I'd liked in 38DD. Sadly, I only managed to find one, so I took that one, and it fitted perfectly. On my way to the check-out, I spotted a pair of brown trousers... lol, so what started out as shopping for one pair of trousers ended up with me having two pairs of new trousers, and a new set of matching undies! What a perfect end to a perfect day!

*Note to the reader - it's not me in the picture, but that bra is from the Per Una range. Unfortunately, that was the one they didn't have in 38DD... I shall keep looking!

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

well congrats on going from 40D to 38DD. It really turns me on when ladies are unashamed to discuss their bra size.

Not that i only like large breasts. All different sizes have their own unique loveliness, but its fun to think about them anyway
