So yesterday I went to Victoria’s Secret in search of a great bra. I hadn’t been fitted in years, about 13 years to be exact. So I go in and I’m like uber excited, getting a new bra, the feeling is something like seeing a real life unicorn. The excitement is really un-explainable.
As I said I walk in super excited, and I talk to an employee named Kellie, she was by the way awesome. I had been just guessing my size and buying 34DD I had also tried 36DD, both were still a little off, I was spilling over in the 34DD and the 36DD was too loose. After about 5 minutes of looking I decide I’m gonna just get fitted.
So I end up speaking with a fit specialist named Kristen, also awesome by the way, and I explain to her the same thing I explained above… Now this chic knew her stuff, she says to me, “You need a 34DDD” Now she said this with out ever measuring me or anything. She said I gave great context clues lol.
Anywhoo, she grabs 3 bras, all 34DDD and told me to go try them on. I do, and yall I am in the fitting room jumping up and down, bending over and every other thing I can think of to get these jokers to pop out of this bra, and I couldn’t. It fit perfect, no spilling over or falling out…
Still excited with Kristen now being my new hero, I step out and start looking at the 2 for $42 bras…. This is where my trip turns into rage…
For those of you who have followed me since my blog started, you know I am a couponer, so bras at $21 each is still a bit much for me, however for a good bra I was willing to spend that.
Problem is, those don’t come in a DDD, the lowest cost bra I could find was $42. Poor Kellie was helping me again, and I’m sure she could see how upset I was because the excited grin she had on her face turned into a nervous grin, but even in my irrationally upset state she stayed awesome. Kudos to Victoria’s Secret for whatever awesome training you give these girls.
I have to be honest, I feel like I was being punked. I’m sure some of you reading this may think that this is minor, but to me there is nothing minor about it. Do you know what $21 can buy a couponer? That’s dinner for an entire month!
I was too enraged to continue so I left with only panties. I went home and searched online in the comfort of my own home where people are used to me cursing out loud… I did find a few things, I’m still not happy about the price, but I need them so , ugh….
Even though I was upset, the experience was amazing. The girls were amazing and I still bought my bras, and now I cant wait to get them.
Moral is, me being upset was not going to change the massiveness of my girls, so after a lot of curse words I came to terms with these vulumtious DDDs, embraced them and got what I needed from my favorite lingerie store!
