Best place for bra fitting

(10 Posts)

So since I've had my baby, my boobs defo seem to have stayed slightly larger than they used to be.
I could defo do with having a proper fitting (I'm 24 and I've never had one).
Where is best to go? I've heard to avoid M&S, but that Debenhams are quite good. Or would somewhere like Ann Summers or Victoria's Secret (dh's suggestions, I wonder why?) be better?
I'm not really large on top, my guess would be around a 38C, but I would like a professional fitter to measure me, to make sure. As my current bras seem too small, especially in the cup.
Thanks so much..

Bravissimo. Or you can measure yourself. What dress size are you? As my money is on you not being a 38 back wink

Bravissimo here too-guaranteed you will come out with a totally different size, I couldn't believe the difference when I went there!

I bet you aren't a 38C. What dress size are you?

Bravissimo. Definitely. You need the wonderwoman that is @marriednotdead !!!

Victoria's secret are legendarily bad, with a very limited size range. And Ann Summers online size calculator doesn't even recognise my measurements as being a possibility, despite me being a fairly standard size.

Bravissimo are the best by far. Debenhams have a great range of sizes available but I'm not sure about their measuring service, I understand it can be hit and miss.

If you're really a 38 you'd probably be wearing roughly a clothes size 20 ish, would that be right?

Definitely bravissimo, although I've heard good things about Debenhams lately.

I once went in to a TK Maxx and every bra size was a 38C. I kept moaning to my husband that 'No one is a 38C!!'

And i would bet money on that for you too.

I have small boobs. I wear a 30F (well i was pre pregnancy, i need to re measure myself).

More people need to increase cup size and decrease band size. I hate fecking m&s and their outdated ways.

Bravissimo! And once you know your size (the proper one), look at the brastop page
