I’m trying to think of a good way to phrase the question without necessarily telling lots of stories about this particular friend, whom I’ll call “N.” So I’ll give a few assorted facts: She’s 21, about 5’2", maybe 120 lbs, and well, generously endowed. She nearly always wears baggy T-shirts and sweatshirts, but of course, that could just be due to her being a poor college student.
One night, there was some discussion between her and a mutual friend, “B.”, as to whether they were the same size. B. said that N. was probably wearing too small a size, “like many women” as she put it. Apparently this discussion led to some bra swapping.
How I wish I’d been there for that but by the time I got there N. was sulking in another room and B. was telling me, “N.'s is upset because I told her she’s not a C-cup.” N. tends to be rather prudish at times but can also be pretty ribald, so I can’t imagine why something she has to have known about for years is bothering her. B.'s attitude is “Honey, flaunt 'em if you got 'em; I do,” but that didn’t seem to help.
So, after all that, I guess what I want to know is why some women (since no one here can speak for my friend) get embarassed about this sort of thing.
