Everyone’s on a Journey — What I Learned From My First Year as a Trans Woman

Forty two. One year of hormone replacement therapy and my bust measures 42 inches around. My band size is a 38. By the illogic of online advice about bra sizes, that would make me a 40D. Bralettes are my biggest supporters most days, and the only sized bra I have is a 38B. I still feel like there’s a fair amount of wiggle room there. Another on the list of contradictions involving femme bodies and fashion. But the numbers are just superficial things. I’ve got breasts. I’ve wanted them for a long time.
