    Bras and Pregnancy

    The first time I was pregnant I grew breasts for the first time, literally overnight. I hadn't really worn a bra in years because I didn't have breasts. The one I had to wear under blouses and when going to see my mother didn't fit suddenly.

    I presented myself at a Kohl's. I looked confused as I tried to estimate just what size bra I might wear. The lingerie clerk measured me and picked out the perfect bra. I felt a little embarrassed but the relief of wearing the right size and type of bra made up for it.

    I encourage everyone to get professionally measured each time they get a bra and know what to look for when buying a bra. If your straps slip or you have to use a hook other than the middle set or you feel unsprung when you pull it off and it leaves marks-you are wearing the wrong size. Gaps and overflowing also means wrong size. Don't feel bad though. Statistics say something like 80 % of women wear the wrong size bra.
