I went to Bravissimo on Friday to get properly measured for a bra. I felt like I wasn’t wearing the right size and I’ve never been so shocked to be right in my life. The woman who measured me was brilliant, put me right at ease (it’s a bit embarassing standing there with your top off and someone going ‘hmm, yes, ok, your size is…’). She was great. Called my size in about 5 seconds.
I had been wearing the wrong bra size for years. She brought me my correct size: I went down two back sizes and up a scary amount in cup size. It’s ridiculous! I’ve been wandering the streets of Scotland in what can only be described as a loose blanket over my top half.
I would urge everyone to get properly measured. You may think you’re the right size but just go to be sure. It’s completely free and you don’t need to buy a bra if you don’t want to. Honestly, I can’t believe the difference. I would never have thought to question my old size if my friend hadn’t recommended Bravissimo. My posture has changed, I’ve finally got an actual body shape other than ‘boob’, and I just feel much better, more confident.
