Earlier this week, Slate posted an interesting essay about the difficulty of bra shopping when you’re big-busted, but not big-waisted (or, to be more anatomically correct, big-ribbed?). While the author’s body type does sound like a particularly difficult one to shop for, we couldn’t help but think of all the women we know (of all shapes and sizes) who dread the whole experience just as much–no matter how many great tips Oprah‘s given us over the years.
Some resort to shelling out exorbitant amounts to pay for exclusive brands that cater to their needs; others hunt for off-the-beaten path boutiques where employees can assist with a real bra fitting.
