PE teachers -- ugh. I mean I am kind of grateful that they made me get some exercise because otherwise I would have just sat on my arse the whole time, but they didn't have to enjoy it so much, did they.

Shock Absorber -- thanks for the recommendation, will look out for them! I am hopeless with bras though, hate getting measured by crazy ladies, ugh. I sometimes wish I'd just bound the damn things flat when I was a teenager (and then dressed as a boy and run away to find my fortune).

Argh, the Shock Absorbers website says that if your breasts have already gone saggy then there's nothing you can do about it EVER! :-( :-( I suppose they are saying that from a "trying to sell sports bras" point of view, but, mrrrhh. :-/

Isn't there a Debenhams in Oxford? They do the not-actual-measuring thing, where you try a bra on & they look & say why it doesn't fit & suggest a better size (repeat until fits). Major advantage: no one waving a tape measure around your norks, although you do still have to stand around in your bra in front of them, albeit briefly. This is also apparently more accurate than the measuring tape calculations.

(I do it myself now: band should be level all the way round & pretty tight; underwire if existent flat against ribcage all the way round each boob; nothing sticking out. The hit rate is still about 3 or 4 that I get on with out of 10 or 12 tried on, but at least the ones I get on with do *actually fit* which is a novelty.)
