..the door opens and two lovely ladies welcome you with smiling faces and a bottle of Prosecco. bubbles and lingerie – I knew I got to the right place.
you should remember the name Sipsey as I did a post about nightwear pieces from Sipsey Lingerie a few weeks ago. the same night I also did a professional bra fitting with the lovely Sukhy, the owner of the boutique.if you haven’t had a bra fitting before and wonder what is it like, the process is quite simple. a fitter will take you to a changing room and ask you to go down to your bra while she waits outside. she will ask you when you’re ready for her to come in and then comes the process of determining your bra size. after that, the fitter brings a selection of bras for you to try. and once the bra is on, she will assess how it fits, looking at the position of the back band and fit of the cups, and adjusting the straps as necessary.
as you see, there’s nothing extraordinary. however having been fitted by an expert and wearing the right bra makes a huge difference.
you might be sure you’re wearing the right size but… around 80 percent of women don’t. and apparently I was one of them too. I’ve done a bra fitting before but it was a while ago and even if I was pretty sure my size has not changed since then, it did.
for such a small item of clothing, bras can be the hardest to buy. that’s why going to someone experienced is the best thing to do. and that is also my main advise on choosing the right bra.
color, pattern and especially trends are not the most important factors when talking about lingerie – a proper fit is what really matters. after all it’s underneath your clothes most of the time, so if you (or your beloved) like that neon green – go on, you have the right!
