I had a very girly weekend consisting of making lots of teddy bears for gifts and a shopping date with my mum, I sound like a stepford wife! I am sure I will have a rock and roll weekend soon which will balance it out.
I started the weekend with a bra fitting at Marks and Spencer, Hedge End, with a close friend. I love their underwear range and almost always get my underwear from there anyway (Marks and Spencer and H&m are my favourite places to shop) and at the age of 21 surly it is time to get measured. I haven’t changed size for as long as I remembered and I am sick of getting excited to get pretty underwear, which just leaves me deflated (literally) after I can’t find anything to fit. Being no bra expert myself I have no clue where I have been going wrong. So many women wear poorly fitted underwear, or underwear that isn’t the right size. Being a small-busted girl myself I was rather nervous I would be measured smaller and it would all end in tears. But it didn’t and it was actually a really nice experience.
Getting measured wasn’t awkward either, I made sure I wore a nice bra, which looking back I could have worn a newer one – alas if I had many of those I wouldn’t be bra shopping would I!!! As soon as I whisked my top off I was told I was wearing something far too small (RESULT). I was then measured 2 sizes bigger than what I was wearing. Which made me excited to see how a bra should really fit.
I explained to the shop assistant what kind of bras I was looking for, I wanted to go for practical yet pretty and she brought back a selection. After trying on a few bras I selected the ones I wanted. I also had a quick nift around the store for any sexy bras, to be honest I didn’t want an assistant to pick these out for me! Unfortunately the 3 that I found they didn’t have in my NEW size! However I was informed I could order all of them into store.
Here are the two sets that I did get, the t-shirt material is perfect for an everyday bra. The light pastel colours are great for the spring season and they are cute and girly too! Two good quality sets for £26 is a bargain. I will wait a few weeks and begin to build my underwear draw with my correct new size.
I would really recommend going for a bra fitting. I was really pleased with Marks and Spencer, they even provide a checking service when you go back to try on new bras to make sure that they are fitting correctly and you haven’t changed size!
