Bra fitting, help my mum!

I live far from my mum, and she is almost 70. She visited just recently and she has back pain and didn't sleep and I discovered that she is wearing a cheap Tesco underworld "fashion" bra in a 34b.

My mum is a size 14 on a good day. I've said to go and get fitted, but where?? M and S is apparently terrible. So where can she go?

I'd try to find a local lingerie shop and have her measured there. The one I go to is very pleasant, has nice cubicles and plenty of seating. She also measures by eye and then goes from that point rather than a tape measure. It feels special rather than being in the middle of a shopping centre.

Bravissimo is usually your best bet. Or she could measure herself according to this guide:
