It may seem to some people that it's completely redonkulus that I can even say that hooping has changed my life at this point in time, but it has. I feel like it's been even more profound than when I lost eighty pounds. Even as a smaller person, I never had the bravery to do one thing: get fitted for a bra. I would just grab five different sizes, do some jump tests and call it a day. I never ordered bras online because that's just wishing for ill will.
|I think these are UK sizes, not US.|
Were they worth $45 each? I think so! I haven't had the your "cupth spillith over" problem again at work and with all the nasty I come in contact with, it's a blessing. Also, I waited to use that bra on my reception. I was wearing an old bra on Saturday at the derby part/my personal hoop jam (party of 1.5). I was playing with my niece and showing her tricks. While chest hooping, my breast popped out. Lucky, I spun around and put it in place. Talk about embarrassing.
Why is this related to hooping? Well, since I've hooped, I have had to talk to people to get the piping and even meet new people. I'm really shy and hate talking to people I don't know. I have to give myself pep talks to order fast food or call people. Yes, I've called Lowes about their irrigation piping very smoothly now. I've talked to numerous people at ACE. I've had to get out of my bubble to hoop. I still have a bubble, don't get me wrong. If I can do that, surely, I can get someone to fit me for a bra. Hooping has given me either bravery, confidence or both.
So, ladies, do yourself a favor and wear the correct size bra! There are tons of statistics I won't rehash to you that women always wear the wrong size.
Wanna know how this can really effect your hooping? Well, I risked ordering a sports bra online when Lane Bryants was having a sale. I figured good for hooping, right? Wrong. It felt funny. Always had. Today I wore it while dancing around the house/cleaning which was longer than previous times. I could have sworn that it was hurting me but atypical for most breast related pain. It felt like the bra was making all my shoulders hold up all 40F of me. I kept on thinking it wasn't anything, just me. I just came back from the park. I'm in severe shoulder pain. That bra is crap. It started to physically, no mental crap to it, hurt when I'd do halo. Now, let me tell you, I've been loving on halos, vortexes and some such. I didn't even feel comfortable to do as much chest hooping like I have been doing. I wound up doing a lot of tosses, elbow thingers, and hand hooping vertically. I came home, ripped the thing off and swore never to wear that bra again.
So, again, ladies, make sure you are wearing the correct bra size.
