Can someone tell me how this intervention works? I got measured in Bravissimo and the bras I bought cut under my arms to ribbons.
The breathing thing sounds all too familiar as well! I'd love sone properly fitting bras. It's all made worse by the fact I have a one week old DD who I'm BFing and my boobs are now too big to put a bra anywhere near...
Koala by any chance are the bras that cut you to ribbons all the same brand? For example, I find Panache to be a great fit, but I couldn't wear one because the wires come up too far and stab me under the arms, its agony. I believe it's something to do with how far up/down your body your breasts actually start, if that makes sense. I've seen other posters here say the same about that brand, so it's quite a common complaint. But I've got plenty of other bras that don't stab me, so it's probably a case of finding the right brand, as well as the right suze and style.
Sorrel it was last summer that I got measured. It seemed a good fit in the shop but after a while in the bras they absolutely killed me!
Treacle they are both Fantasie bras I think so maybe the problem is the wires?
Thanks French, will prob give Bravissimo another chance and mention the Fantasie bras I bought last time were no good.
My chest is absolutely gigantic at the moment and I dread having to leave to house because I will have to squeeze myself into one of the feeding bras that are clearly about 4 sizes too small and also probably too big!
Yes all my previous measurings had been done at M&S one of which left me in tears, I had been told I'd need a 38 to which I very meekly said I thought maybe it was too large and got sneered at and told that it's about time I accepted the fact in was a bigger girl and stopped trying to force myself into sizes too small.
I cried for a long time after that, it really shook my confidence.
