Please help- need bra advice. Experts please reply to plea
I've never had a bra that fits. I've been measured everything from a 34 A to a 36 F. I've never owned a bra that doesn't leave red marks undermy breast and on shoulders. Most always ride up a bit at back too and nip at skin by armpit. I've wasted so much money and now want to get it right.
I stopped breast feeding about 2 months ago, though still feed first thing and last thing. I'm desperate for some new bras before I go back to work. I tried the bra intervention technique talked on here and measured at 30 inches under breasts and 38 inches across breasts when at 90 degrees. Does that make me a 32 E?
Also any tips where to buy a bra, is Bravissimo the place to go?
Thank you. I don't think I have a particularly large chest, a FF or G sounds way to big. However I'm going with it as so many good results following bra intervention on here! Though I think I'm stuck at a 34 B in my head as was mostly measured that pre baby.
I'm going to call bravissimo to see if they can fit me in. Does anyone know if they are okay if you bring a baby, will organise a week day appointment where should be quieter I'm hoping!
I just had my appointment at Bravissimo. It was a humiliating and rather unpleasant experience. I'm surprised at how many good reviews they get on here as they made me feel like a second class citizen.
Ignored any mention of 30ff, put me in a 32 dd. Only one bra in that size fit, they tried no other sizes. The only one that fit was the most expensive in the shop. I had to explain that I didn't have £50 to spend on a bra at this stage.
I was put in a dusty, sparse changing room and had to put my coat on floor so baby didn't get dust on here when I let her stretch her legs. Baby was mostly ignored and treated like a distraction. On way out they wouldn't even hold the door for me with pram, 4 shop assistants gossiping at till and giving me a dirty look.
Really, that's terrible. Which one was it? I have a contact in the company and I'm very happy to pass on your comments. I've only every had a great experience so am so, so surprised to hear that. What a dreadful shame.
Yeah, perhaps I should complain. To be honest it's really knocked my confidence. Was my first outing like this since having a baby. I feel like there must be something wrong with me, don't look good enough etc. I know that sounds mad but I've had low confidence after second baby. Was the Glasgow store.
