ddd Bras-Fancy Lingerie Now Includes ddd Bras

OK-Now That I have Your Attention, this ddd bra wasn't (quite) what I meant
OK-Now That I have Your Attention, this ddd bra wasn't (quite) what I meant

ddd Bras Have Come Such A Long Way!

And what a relief that is! There was a time not so long ago when the only options to ladies in this size were ugly beige, white, and an occasional black bra. The styles were perfectly suited for those women over 80 years old, complete with wide, 4-prong closures and heavy, 'durable' straps. I guess anyone under 80 would have been considered an explosion risk so the industry only made things that would have absolutely no chance of exposing any sightings out of those big, bad boy mammories.

Well, I was one of 'those' girls myself , but thanks to the increase in the fascination with bigger breasts, came a whole world of beautifully designed and pretty lingerie. For those gals who desperately wished for a wider selection, this was a welcome sign in any ddd bra section of the bra store!

A common bra choice when I began wearing bras - Uugghh!

Fancy Lingerie Now Includes ddd Bras

When all the other girls were getting training bras, I was initiated into a 32 C cup. Having grown up in an active and athletic environment, I found this to be more of an inconvenience than anything and it was a constant complaint from my jealous girlfriends - "You have big boobs." So to diminish the sarcasm and stares, I wore a lot of clothes that minimized my chesty looks.

I was actually mortified that this 'curse' had fallen on me at a time when all I cared about was riding horses, and girl scouts. And having Olive Oil legs only made it worse - There I was from 6th grade all through high school, looking like a stick figure drawing with boobs. 7th grade P.E. was the worst for me. Girls can be cruel with their vicious stares, loud exclamations, pointing and laughing out loud.

At 19, I wore them proudly, but was still desperate for something nicer to wear under my clothes and so I often squeezed myself into smaller, uncomfortable booby traps just to have something pretty to wear. Well, that was miserable.

To this day, I am guilty of having a drawer full of lingerie that gets little to no wear. There are three multi colored corsets, one red bra with a big black bow on the front, one purple bra with black lacy straps and a corset back strap, one pink bra, one green bra, one red bra, at least six lacy black bras and one dark brown bra. Not to mention the bag of garters, bag of garter nylons, bag of elastic thigh high stockings, and the lacy and plain footless stockings.

Because I spent a lifetime trying to hide my dreary, plain bras, I for one, am pleased hugely that sexy lingerie is being worn on the outside. Oh, I don't mean the straps that the back of the shirt has fallen down and the entire backside of a bra is exposed - That's tacky to me. I mean the bevy of colorful straps and strap designs and colors that stick out from tank tops and jazzy shirts or dresses. I mean the prettier bras that look fun.

ddd Bras Bringing Fancy And Functionality!

Instead of standing back and wishing I could find one of those prettily made bra cups, they are now more common in lingerie and finer bra stores.

In the recent past narrow straps meant deep shoulder marks, but pretty lingerie for the ddd bras now means that shoulder straps are slightly wider with the addition of lacey bra accessories and other frilly options. You may not avoid the deep shoulder marks, but you don't have to be limited to anything dreary anymore.

If you are a fellow and you think that your gal has great big boobs because she wears a 36 B - that's just not the case. The truth is she has a wide back with a small cup. Believing that fallacy is like buying an extra large jock strap for a 32" waist.

Ladies, my point is, if you are in this category - or even if you wear a bra - leaving the pretty choices of bra lingerie in your drawer is like putting plastic on the furniture. Take them out of the drawer, and enjoy the view! Life is too short not to!

      haha BKCreative! You cracked me up. And, I can't WAIT to go to Dublin - That is so forward thinking of them! Yes, they were uncomfortable and many still are! You are right, DDD may not be big enough, it could become what an A was many years ago. I had an interesting experience with a woman with a tape measure once. She measured me, and then proceeded to fondle me after I tried on the bra she recommended, to "check to make sure it fit correctly." My mother stood there shocked as did I and haven't let anyone measure me since then. Thanks!

      Great hub! Of course the bra I want is the one with the sparkles shooting out. Wouldn't that be fun at a Halloween party!!! Or on a subway train!

      About 10 years ago I was in Dublin, Ireland and decided to look for a bra - because I could never find one here in the US off the rack to fit properly and the choices were mostly A,B,C and 32-38 and the D's were somewhere off in a corner. Yet we are the fattest folks on earth. But I'm a 36B (or something - I no longer know or care) but the choices were so uncomfortable.

      But there in Dublin I went to the bra floor which was the entire length of this giant store and they had A, B, C, D, E, F, G and cup, length, color...everything in between. With a full staff of women with tape measures to help you. Wow! I came, saw and shopped.

      I fear DDD may not be big enough for some US women. Sigh!

      Hi Msorensson - thanks for your positive feedback! I always envied the girls who got the pretty choices until a few years ago. Bra choices have become absolutely beautful! Love what you were given - That's the only way.

      Hi Kowality! Maybe in honor of you they will come out with an ice cream bra ;-) The choices now are amazing compared to what they were just a few years back! I'm sure even you have noticed a difference (as a man, though I don't think your attention span is supposed to be that long regarding things that cover up boobs).

      Besides Ice cream, this might be my favorite topic!
