A furniture development
« on: August 09, 2007, 07:09:49 AM »

Not only am I getting smaller than my drawers, my chest is getting smaller than my bra. Not enough to run out and get new, but enough to notice that things don't fit the way they used to.

It's like in an opera where the fat lady gets in the middle of the stage by herself and sings for five minutes. That's when you start gathering up your stuff and trying to remember where you parked the car.

Goodbye cleavage.

Glad you brought this up bekel, always in the past when I lost weight, the girls were the first to go, then noticeable in my face, but this time, the cup size remains the same, only had to get smaller chest size.  Now it's so nice to have them leading the way, and not the tummy :lol:
Thought  it might be vanity sizing, in reverse, DD now a former C.  I know jeans sizes have really changed, because I wore 14s in highschool with a weight of 120, now 14s with 180 weight, and slim cup size was B, now DD, something is changing with the sizing industry.

Finally figured out how to change the ticker, posted final goal, instead of first goal.

I was afraid that'd happen to me, but mercifully it doesn't seem to be. Mesdames are still managing to occupy their existing D/DD shelters. I now need to use the tightest band hooks, though.

I wear low-rise jeans (more flattering on an ultra-short torso) and my butt is regrettably minimal, so losing around the middle hasn't affected my clothes as much as it otherwise might.

Bekel,
As an opera student, I hope you get a chance to see an opera good enough that you're not gathering your belongings in the middle of a blockbuster aria :wink:

As someone who works for a lingerie retailer-it may not seem cost effective to go out and buy a new bra, but if you make yourself go and get fitted, you'll find that everything you put on top of that bra automatically looks better, too...and you wear those dern things every day...I got a new bra (free, perk of the job) and people keep asking me if I've lost weight (and I've only lost 5 pounds, something people usually don't notice). When the girls are perky, you tend to be...well, perky! (and as a side note, cleavage is usually a byproduct of a well-fitted, properly adjusted bra. Promise. No need to say goodbye...)

Awesome job on the weight loss!

When I think "fat lady aria" I've got Wagner in mind. I would rather count calories than watch Germanic opera. The sextet in "Lucia di Lammermoor" is my epitome of outstanding opera.

You make a compelling case for new bras. Now I have to find a place to get fitted--I usually just do the usual, you know.

I have confess to actually loving Wagner..."rheingold" leitmotifs and all of that, but I guess you'd expect that from a dramatic soprano, eh?  But I love all of it, so mayhap I'm biased. Puccini, Sondheim, Verdi, Mozart...ahhh...

I can suggest a place to be fitted-for free! Am I allowed to hawk any particular company? Honestly, though, most bridal shops will do it for you, as well. Just keep in mind that a department store, a boutique, and a specialty retailer all run differently, size wise, so if the place you're planning on purchasing offers fitting services, try to utilize them.

But I can never think of Wagner without thinking of Elmer Fudd ("Be My Wuv," and "Kill the Wabbit") and Bugs (the object: "Po' wittle buuuunnnnyyyy"):

(Q: What's the definition of an alto?
A: A soprano who can sight-read.  *badda-bing* )  ;)

I don't care if you mention your company--probably would be a customer service here for us (I know I'm not the only lady with this issue! ;) )

And losing-it--totally AWESOME!

Ouch! You slay me, Bekel! Just kidding. Although I'm actually an awesome sightreader, if I do say so myself (and my As in Aural Perceptions say it for me anyway, lol).

 How many sopranos does it take to screw in a ligthbulb? Two, one to hold the mineral water, and one to get her accompanist to do it.

I manage for the local Victoria's Secret, so I have to plug them. Most (I say most because I sometimes have to go back and correct the other girls) are trained and experienced at bra fittings. Just be sure to have the bra specialist on duty checks your fitting in person-the fitting isn't always 100% accurate due to differences in women's bodies, etc. and we can always suggest new styles to suit your individual needs and desires, adjust straps, etc. However, I know there are other companies that do reputable work-just don't get fitted at one, then try to buy the same size in another-they're all different!

Losing-it: loved the photos. When I get my "Got Opera?" mug in the mail, I'll be sure to take a picture...

I thought it was one--but the world revolves around her. ;)

Remember, I'm a musician too. My husband is always asking for my clarinet case so he can put it on the dash so we can park in the handicapped space.

Thank you for the fitting tip. My husband will enjoy that trip. (!  :D )

Understand the bra issue...same for me...

Got fitted @ Lane Bryant's....and bought a couple of new ones...same design line...but different colors..figured that since I found something that fitted right I might as well get a couple...besides they were on sale....

Note to self:   Start a new savings fund.  Put monies not spent on fast food into fund. Save for next big sale on bras and panties.  (even though I'm the only one to see them on me)

Yes, but you can go around with a Mona Lisa smile on your face because of what's under your clothes!
