Bra measurements incorrect?

So, lately I’ve realized that I am wearing the wrong bra size. So, I read about how to properly measure your bra size, but a bunch of different sites have different ways to measure your bra size. I feel with each way, that they are still wrong because they all are different.

For example, my measurements are:
Over bust: 32
Bust: 33
Under bust: 29

According to Victorias Secret’s guidlines, the overbust measurement is your band size. Substract band size from bust size. (32-33= -1) That makes no sense at all.

Another site suggests that you add 5 to the underbust measurement if it is an odd number to find band size. Then subtract band size from bust size again. (29+5=34) then (33-34= -1) Again, another negative number.

Another way was that your underbust measurement was your band size, but if it was an odd number, round up. So therefore my band size would be 30. Then again, subtract band size from bust size. (33-30= 3) So that makes me a 30C.

I am totally confused on what bra size I am. I currently wear a 34B cause that is what I always felt I was. I tried on many sizes of bras. A 32B caused spillage. A 32C felt exactly the same as my 34B, but I understand that those 2 sizes are the similar because of the „down a band size, up a cup size“ theory. Also, a bra calculator suggested that I was a 34A, and that bra size definitely doesn’t fit me as well. It’s impossible to try a 30C because every store I have been doesn’t carry that size.

How many other ladies have the same problem?

You measure out as a 30C, but measurements are only supposed to serve as a starting point when trying on bras. If a 34B cups are too small, try a 30DD. A 30DD is just one cup larger than a 34B, so don’t feel that you can’t be a DD because true DDs aren’t large at all. A 34B and 32C are „sister sizes“ along with 36A, 30D, and 28DD and all that means is that the cups are all the same volume while the band size changes.

The method where you add 4, 5, or even 6 inches to your band size is outdated and was originally used before bras had elastic and could stretch; it no longer applies to modern bras.

Can you help me with some school work?

I am here. The air is
laden in corrosive bile, somewhat offset
by a repulsing essence of false camaraderie,
I breathe in, my lungs burn
from the putrid sweetness that lingers.

behind an orange crusted mound of facial hair,
partially hidden under an over-sized silver helmet
which appears to be a relic from World War One,
with numerous indentations and scratches.

He walks with an arrogance and smugness, suggesting
the underlings are unaware of his diminished capacity.

I would say the lot of them are…not so much as ugly,
but….not pretty, in a face for radio kind of way
each attached to the other with green umbilical cordage
protruding from what appears to be, a miniature IBM cash register
implanted in their foreheads, causing all to list at odd angles.

The halls are mirrored, two way of course
and the helmeted Godman walks the corridors,
steadily humming show tunes, in his hands
a TI 35 calculator, a ticker tape like trailer follows.

He seems to have an assistant, looking very Garfunkelesque,
she fawns over the leader, rubbing a greyish ointment over his helmet
which seems to…excite him. The lesser class here, are happy and often seen
connecting their umbilicals, to what appears to be a central scrutinizing unit.

I am worried about them. Each morning they gather, kneeling three degrees
West of North, chanting in an unknown language before consuming
an orange gelatinous liquid. I feel a Jonestown sense to it all. I realized
today, that the liquid matches the Leaders facial hair in tone. Odd….

I am trying to get this prose like piece into a poem format for a teacher I need to impress…any suggestions are appreciated
thanks cannibal..it was your opionion I was counting on

I am here but when look 3 degrees w West of North,
the air inside me burns with fear.

Over there his orange hair
hides a grin,
and a battered relic larger than him,
over his eyes,
and covers the orange
that covers the grin.
war fought and done are you still in?

that you have a lot you do not show.

of unthinking faces,
to the horror of
Everything put together, it doesn’t compute
It’s just data, data and data loops.

As his importance waxes
from his vision of battleaxes,
I can see what they cannot,

Holding on and providing assistance
with unneeded aid,
they are the remainders and reminders
of his delusions for an undeserved, wrong data,

I am worried for this group that wants to run,
but remain to remind him that he’s the one…,
he’s the one…,
the leader that hides orange in his hair, hat, head, health and grin.
I see a spellbound relentless orange morning ray
gather this group that wants to run and not pray.

But the only color that they profess to see
is orange tranquility.
Odd, that „they who want to run“ know of his superstition better than me.

Hope it helps, I just tried to make it more personal.

Therapy is making me feel worse!?

I am seeing a therapist for generalized anxiety disorder & body image issues. I have been seeing my therapist for 1 month. My anxiety has gotten worse & now I feel that I’m not getting any better. Each week I feel like I am getting worse because I have to deal with issues that I haven’t had to think about for years. We agreed that the approach to my healing would be through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy, but so far all we’ve done is talk about my past. He doesn’t even address my body image issues. When I bring my body issues up, he glides right over that & on to more questions about my family.
The sessions go by fast & mostly consist of casual talk about my job & conversations regarding my family history. Last week he asked me if I would tell him how much money I make at my job. We spent 15 minutes discussing my salary. When I asked why he was interested, he said he was intrigued by people in the art world & just wondered what kind of money I made. He even pulled out a calculator hoping I’d tell him what I make a month. I thought that was odd, but maybe not. I cry every single time I’m in therapy & I feel dumb after wards. He always looks at me & says he feels sorry for me…
That statement makes me feel pretty bad & very, very, very pathetic. I didn’t go there for sympathy…I go for a solution.
Before therapy I had mild anxiety, but now I have serious anxiety & sadness because all the old stuff I went through is fresh on my mind week after week. Also, I agreed to do medical therapy along with CBT.
I was already on meds given to me by my general physician, but my psychologist wants me to see a psychiatrist for a prescription.
He told me that the psychiatrist would have to reevaluate me, so that means I’ll have to go through all the depressing details of my past again & with a new strange person. I’ve told him that this alone causes me a lot of anxiety, but he ignores my concerns & continues to insist.
I really don’t want to do this, but I’m feeling pressured into it.
I found this guy through my insurance plan. Therapy is kinda new to me, so I dont‘ want to rush into any judgements on what is & isn’t normal. But, is this normal?? Should I be feeling worse & more anxious? Or am I feeling this way because my therapist isn’t a good fit for me?
I am already on paroxetine (paxil).
I was doing fine with the drug I already have, but my general physician felt therapy would help even more…but as I said before…I’m getting worse now.
The reason my therapist wants me to see a psychiatrist (that he knows & has selected )is because he wants me to try lamictal.
He says he’s read that many psychiatrists are trying lamictal with great success for people who have my disorder. My general physician suggests I avoid this drug.

You are very much on target.
„Cognitive therapy“ does not delve into family history much–it is your thinking ansd messages you send yourself about body image. Now perhaps the doctor is trying to find a link from your childhood and how your parents treated you and what messages they gave you about yourself–which affects your self-esteem.
Bottom line is this–if he is wasting your time (and the whiole crock about your salary is just that)–then he is not for you.
Perhaps a female therapist would work out better.
If Paxil is helping, i don’t know why he is pushing for lamictal–unless if they get great kick backs from the drug manufacturer 9which most doctors do get some kind of kickback from various drug companies–I’m serious, like trips, weekends in hawaii, etc).
Besides the paxil, (which is an anti-depressant much like Zoloft or Prozac)–you would benefit from a small dose of something for anxiety–such as klonopin, or ativan, xanax. It works right away–within 30 minutes to help relax you, and calm down your heart rate, etc.
Paxil works cumulatively–„Over time“. It has to build up in your blood stream to a therapeutic level–may take 4-6 weeks to stabilkize at the right level.
Oh–nnot sure, but some doctors will ‚refer‘ their patients to a ‚friend‘. Kinda keep the money flowing their friend’s direction, and vice versa.
Some people see a psychiatrist once a month, maybe for a half hour for medication review only.
The real ‚therapy‘ is done with a psychologist (‚counselor) who does ‚talk therapy‘, and gets to the root of things and works through them with you.
So you have options. I’m sure there are group therapies too. Some are all women, etc. There may be some support groups too, that a counselor would know about–on body image and self esteem, etc.
Please don’t be intimidated by this shrink. I have worked for them and with them for over 2 decades. Most are great and very caring. And some are quacks, just like in any profession.
I knew one psychiatrist who spent half a session telling the lady about his trip to bostomn.
Seeing that she was spending \$140.00 per session–that doctor made \$70.00 talking about his trip. She wrote him a letter explaining that she would not be returening until he paid her back the money. He offerred a free session–and she took it to terminate his services.
Best wishes to you.

Thank you..

1) p(x) = 1/2 * 25/51 = 25/102

2) p(x) = 1 – (1/2)^10 = 1023/1024

3) same as nr2 , means not all in order.
P(x) = 1 – ( 30/45 * 29/44 * 28/43 * 27/42)

4 p(x) = 1- (1 – 0.09)^5

6 ) 10*9*8*7

7) 18*17*16/(1*2*3)

8) 7*6*5*4*3

9) 8*7*6*5*4*3

10) how many questions??
