Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay

 

From the New York Times best-selling author of Bad Feminist, a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, self-image, and learning how to feed your hunger while taking care of yourself. 

New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In Hunger, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties—including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life—and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life. 

With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. Hunger is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn’t yet been told but needs to be.

    Bra - How to Measure

    Step 1: Measure your band size.

    With your bra on, measure firmly around your rib cage, underneath your breast. The measuring tape should be parallel with the ground. Please reference chart below for band measurements.

    Step 2: Measure your cup size.

    With your bra on, measure the fullest part of your bust. This works best with a non-padded bra. Make sure the tape is taut and straight. 

    Step 3: Calculate your bra size.

    Subtract your band measurement from your cup measurement. Generally, for each inch in difference, the cup goes up by one size.
    Range 29"–32" 33"–34" 35"–39" 39"–41" 42"–43" 44"–45"
    Size 34 36 38 40 42 44

    Example:

    Step 1: 33" = 36 Band

    Step 2: 38"

    Step 3: 38" - 33" = 5", which is an E cup size in Prima Donna or DD in Elomi
