For those of you non-bra wearers or males, finding the correct bra is a science. It's like the neuroscience of the breasts. And finding one in Brazil is even more of a headache.
I had only just figured out bra science of the US. The whole cup and rip cage stuff. Imagine my surprise when I came down here and saw that bras were in one size and that was a 40, 44, or something like that.
What about the cup? Isn't the actual boulder holder part of the bra the most important? And there is no size for that?!
I think that is why many women in Brazil suffer from the ever serious problem called Quad-boob. As much as most of you males think that 4 boobs would look great. I mean, the more the merrier, right?
Wrong! It's like S&M of the breast, only no pleasure... not that I imagine S&M is pleasurable in and of itself.
These poor breast look like caged tigers trying to escape the circus. It's a horrible tragedy, especially in the eyes of this small breasted woman. If I had girls like that, they would be cupped and caressed by their bra, equally balanced between display and support.
But this bra plight is not just with the large breasted Brazilian woman. The bra of the small breasted is even worse. We're talking fields and fields of cotton being used to fill the mounds they call cups. They are so padded I can hardly fit my half sized girls in them. And we can all tell it's all stuffing. I really don't feel comfortable walking around looking falsely aerodynamic.
Of course I could go into the fancy underwear shops in the mall. I did once. I had the same problems and I really didn't appreciate a R$200 price tag. The girls did, however, look fabulous. The stuffing is made of much better cotton in the fancy stores. It was one of those bras that would make a guy pick a girl up in a bar and then wonder where her breasts went once he took her home. Gosh, that brings me back to my twenties...
Anyway, this girl has stopped her half-assed Brazilian bra hunt and judgments over quad-boob. It's not their fault! They are only a product of their bra surroundings. Luckily, I get to go home and buy overpriced bras in my own country. It's ok though, I'm willing to pay extra for the cup size and professional sizer. A girl only gets one set of breasts, until she manages to save up to buy some new ones, so it's best to take care of them.
