So, I'm tweeting about bras with M&S. Who wants to tell me which stores have given incorrect measurements?

They have asked which store fitted incorrectly. Apparently they've invested a lot into their Bra fitting and would like to know which stores have incorrectly measured / fitted.

Shall we give them a list?!

every one in the country?

I'll start with Edinburgh gyle and Princes Street

Stirling and Glasgow sauchiehall street.

Hedge End, Southampton (on more than one occasion!)

anyone who sees this and wonders about their bras please come over to one of the other bra threads and we will help you-let's try to keep this one as a clear list as it may be easier to tweet the link later.

For reference marks I am a 30hh/j and you fitted me in a 36f.

Fantastic, keep them coming!

I suspect it's a training issue rather than store. I'm going to make the most of having their attention.

All credit to the bra ladies Sorrel and Statistically though smile

Worthing fitted me as a 34A. I'm currently wearing 30F.

I think it would be much quicker to let them know where a correct fitting has taken place. They'd have me in
a 34D given half a chance and I'm a 30FF.

We have a huge M&S but they don't stock much in bigger cup sizes and what they do have is very matronly. I don't bother with them anymore.

Lewisham (who couldn't even be bothered to look half interested) & Bluewater. This would also be the Bluewater where I went to buy a maternity bra the day before my caesarean 5 years ago that had the 'fitter' go out to tell her colleagues who then laughed loudly telling anyone around.

On last fitting, they have me a 38C. After having saggy breasts and sore sides too long, I eventually went to Rigby and Peller who fitted me with a 32E. I cannot tell you what a difference it made in both comfort and appearance.

Never again M&S, both because of attitude and lack of skills

M&S Oxford - 36A and now I'm 30F (although breastfeeding). Was fitted correctly at Bravissimo.

Manchester Market Street fitted me as 38B.

I'm 32F.

Chichester, West Sussex would have me in a 34B currently in a 30DD or 28E dependant on brand/style

Cardiff city centre measured me as a 36F - 32GG everywhere else!

PassTheTwiglets Thu 18-Jul-13 14:53:46

Colchester. I got told I couldn't possibly be a 36 as it was only women who are a size 10 or 12 who are (I'm a size 18-20 and a definite 36").

5SpeckledFrogs Thu 18-Jul-13 14:53:55

Cambridge told me 36DD I'm currently wearing 28H....

OohMrDarcy Thu 18-Jul-13 14:53:58

Hedge End marked me as a 40DD ... turns out (thanks to the bra threads) I am a 36 / 38 GG - way off!
