Decent bra fitting in North Staffs or Trafford Centre

Im in desperate need of a decent new bra , my last two were brought from Asda off the peg and before that from M & S in Hanley but I've never really been happy with their fittings.

The best bra fitting I've ever had was in M&S when on holiday that's why I've been there.

I've got a day off work tomorrow and am going on a rare shopping trip to the Trafford Centre. Alternatively I can get to Hanley or Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Please don't suggest anywhere else as it will be Christmas before I gave the chance to go any further afield.

My mum, after years and years of being 'encouraged' by her daughters finally was properly fitted for a bra in John Lewis in the Trafford Centre, they were great with her so I recommend them.

I suggest trying John Lewis in the Trafford Centre, another branch of John lewis were quite good at fitting me.

Alternatively, there's a shop called Boux Avenue in The Trafford Centre who do fittings and have their own range of undies. Never shopped there myself but am curious so let us know if you go there!

Boux Ave is great for knickers and nightwear, (esp if you want something a bit saucy...) but JL for bra fitting every time.

Are you in the greater Mcr area? If you are look online at Celebrar, she will come to your house and fit you with decent inexpensive bras, and all in the comfort of your own home.

No, I'm not in Manchester. We are having a day out tomorrow. Won't get chance again until Christmas then the kids will be in tow!

I'm definitely not after saucy, I want a plain natural colour bra or one with clear straps to go under certain dresses I have then possibly a plain black or white one.

I just want one that fits properly really. Looks like its John Lewis then.

If you are anywhere near Stafford there's a great (if a little pricey) place called Saffron on Mill St. Bought my mum a voucher last Christmas and she was very pleased with the results. Totally different silhouette!

I'm in Stoke. Unfortunately due to work & school pick up commitments I can't get to Stafford.

Went to John Lewis & was very happy with the service. Turns out I was wearing completely the wrong size do unless I've chaned drastically was mis fitted last time which was about 18 months ago.

Thanks for the suggestions.
