American Bra Sizes Keep Growing And Growing

It’s no secret that Americans are getting fatter each decade (obesity rates have doubled since 1980), but the news isn’t all bad. The upside to our bigger waistlines? Bigger bustlines to go with them! In fact, in the last ten years, the median bra size in the U.S. has grown from 36C to 36DD! And thanks to Oprah and her Bra Fit Interventions, more women than ever are getting sized and wearing the correct bra, which in this age of big boobs, means the full-figured bra business is booming (sales of bigger bras increased 7.4 percent from 2008 to 2009). The only problem is that supply has yet to keep up with demand. Says Susan Nethero, who runs a lingerie shop called Intimacy: “Full-figure bras have sold far faster and larger than average-size bras. Full-busted sales have grown by at least 10 percent over the past year, and 74 percent of my bra business is now with cup sizes larger than DD. I wish there were more. We are not getting enough new [full-figured] product.” That roar you just heard is the sound of curve-loving men (and women) everywhere cheering their hearts out. [via NYmag.com] Keep reading »

  • If your boyfriend smokes and it annoys you, just tell him that continuing to puff might make him lose his sex drive–or worse, his erection. [Jamaica Gleaner]
  • If a guy looks nothing like the photo in his online dating profile, that’s disappointing. If a guy you meet online suddenly goes to Africa and asks you to wire him some money, that’s a scam. [Click2Houston.com]
