Plus Size Nerd FAQ

I’ll keep a running list of frequently asked questions here. If you can’t find an answer to your question, shoot me an email at nancy@plussizenerd.com.

What size are you?

18 to 22, depending on how what time of year it is and how stressed I’ve been. If I’m an 18, I’m doing pretty well.

How tall are you?

5′ 1″. I lost half an inch sometime after 40.

How old are you?

I was born in 1970. So, this year – 1970 = my age.

What’s your bra size?

A hefty 42H. Ladies, getting the right bra size is imperative. Not just any ol’ department store can measure you if you have gigantic books, like I do. I went to Gie Gie Lingerie, a specialty store that mainly caters to women who have had mastectomies. The woman who measured me was an angel. I was in my 30s, for cryin’ out loud, and finally had a well-fitted bra! Skip Victoria’s Secret and any As Seen on TV nonsense. Go to a store that sells nothing but bras. A small business will especially give you the service you deserve.
