The girls are unhappy.

Apparently I can no longer tolerate wearing a bra.

I had twins sixteen months ago and pumped around the clock for five months after they were born. Ever since I stopped lactating and went back to regular bras, I find them horribly uncomfortable. The band around my chest feels too tight, and if I loosen it with an extender it feels like it's rubbing my skin. I had been measured before my pregnancy and I recently went back to Nordstrom to be measured again, so I feel like I must be wearing the right size. The band width increased and the cup size decreased, which doesn't surprise me given the weight I've gained and how pumping changed the shape of my breasts (much more saggy now). I've tried different styles of bras but nothing is helping. Fortunately I can go most days without wearing one at all but when I do I feel horrible in it after just a few hours. Going out in public without one isn't an option. I don't remember this being the case before my pregnancy so I think it must be related, I just can't figure out how or what to do about it. I was a 32 DD before and am now a 34 D, if that helps. I just can't imagine living another 40 years being this unhappy in a bra.
