Do You Know Your Bra Size?

Sunday, July 27, 2014

Wednesday was hubby's birthday. For his present, he decided to take me to Victoria's Secret to buy a new bra emoticon

Once we got there, I tried on a bra in the size I THOUGHT I wore (the size on the tag of the bra I was currently wearing). It didn't fit right and I started getting very frustrated. emoticon

Hubby reminded me that VS does free bra fittings. So I asked, and even though it was a little embarrasing, the salesgirl was very sweet and after a few try-ons, she showed me how to tell if the fit was right. Once we got the right size I was amazed at how good it felt. I didn't need to adjust any straps and it felt perfect!!

Truth be told, I had not changed my bra size since I lost almost 30 pounds a couple of years ago. Weight loss, plus working out had reshaped my body (duh!!) I can't believe I didn't realize I needed a new size!!

Anyway, DO YOU KNOW YOUR BRA SIZE? VS recommends you get remeasured every six months, just in case. And I highly recommend a bra fitting. It feels so good when you have the right bra AND the right size for you. emoticon

    I got some new ones in August. I looked at a very unflattering picture of myself and wow, I knew I need to go shopping. Then I read a women's mag, the kind you get at the checkout and it had a great article on how to select a bra and include brand names, etc. So I am happy!

    I don't know how the "number" people figure this particular statistic, but supposedly 80% of women wear the wrong size bra. I am sure a lot of it is the fact most of us don't get fitted every six months.

    Glad you found one that you like!

    My last fitting was at VS too! It was the last thing I expected to be doing, but appreciated the results! -- only far too long ago. Great advice! -- Evelyn

    Such a small thing that can really make a big difference.

    Makes sense, and yet most of us overlook the details of this this tedious contraption called the bra! :-)
    I need to check my size too! :-)
