    If the Cup's (Way More Than) Half Full
    We vowed we wouldn't use the expression "lovely lady lumps" in this story. ...Oh, damn. Pretend you didn't just read that.

    If your cups runneth over, you probably have a tough time finding lingerie that doesn't look like it was made for a grandma. Well, unless you've already been to The Full Cup (218 N. Lee St., Alexandria, VA), which styles itself as a European-style bra fitting salon specializing in "total breast wellness." (Whoa.) The Full Cup specializes in band sizes 28-48 and cup sizes C-K, although you will find some in A's and B's, too.

    This Thursday, May 28, The Full Cup hosts a party for European line Conturelle, geared specially for those whose assets fall on the higher end of the spectrum. From 4-7 p.m., preview the new spring collection while reps from Conturelle offer advice on the structure and fit of their bras. You'll also score a free gift with purchase -- and don't leave without your goody bag.

    Attendees who donate gently used bras will be entered into a drawing to win an exclusive bra/panty set from Conturelle. And when was the last time you got to swill champagne and nosh on hors d'ouevres while bra shopping? Go ahead, think about it. We'll wait.
