Have you ever told anybody IRL they needed a bra intervention?

Obviously I wouldn't ever do it... But there's a girl at work who every time I see my head just screams 'bra intervention, now!'.

Only if they have brought the topic up, i.e. complaining about their bra not fitting right.
I know what you mean though, I know someone with such ill fitting bras that the band is near enough in line with the top of her shoulders.

My mum insists she is a 38 back. She is a size 14 and not broad. I sort of tried to gently suggest she might need a smaller band but she wasn't interested. She's a 38B and that's that.

Yes, as SewButtons has said. An Anerican friend is particularly grateful.

Unsurprisingly, yes blush. All good friends though and done in a very jokey way. I have also accosted people in M&S and gently suggested that the bras they are about to try are completely the wrong size.

Yeah but only friends. While you're at work you could say your going to get a bra fitting at the weekend and see what she says, she probably hasn't had one!

Not directly but I have gone on and on and on about my own bra self-intervention and it has spread amongst my colleagues grin

My friend did it to me and I love her for it.

I would if she were a friend, but she's a new colleague and we're not really close or friendly. It annoys me because she's v clever and serious but is a v curvy girl and wearing a way too small cup size under sheer shirts - So whenever I see her I just think boobs, boobs, boobs and more boobs. I probably need to get a life and stop noticing.

once you know, you cant un-know

so many badly fitting bras everywhere

Absolutely not! How woman chose to wear their bras is none of my beeswax.

Floisme Sat 09-Apr-16 14:10:42

Normally I'd agree with Dame but with a bra, it isn't necessarily about choice. - sometimes your boobs change and you're the last one to notice. That's what happened to me and I was really grateful to my friend. We were out trying on clothes at the time so it just came up naturally plus we have a pretty frank relationship anyway.

However if this woman isn't a friend and you don't normally talk clothes then I'm not sure how you can do it.

Just re read my post- typos galore, sorry!

My whole sports team. Sports bra related and it went from there.
And my step sisters. And several friends. My aunt.

I always give them my bra to put on and they never believe me..... Then it's like OH NO WAY - I'M AN F CUP.
