Gok Wan is on to something when he’s banging on about “bangers“ and making sure that women are wearing the correct size underwear. The right bra and knickers can make a huge difference to an outfit, streamlining the figure and giving a lift and a boost to where we need it most.
I’m sure that you’ve had a bra fitting recently and know your size (if not, you should sort that out sharpish!) but how many times have you been to a shop to get a new bra, only to find that they have your preferred style in every size BUT YOUR OWN! It happens to me all the time! Well it wasn’t until one helpful bra fitting lady (I think in M&S but can’t be 100% sure to give the credit!) gave me this life changing advice I’d never heard of before – you have “sister sizes” in bras.… yep, I wasn’t aware of this either… Basically, if you can’t find your exact size there are two other options for you.
… Say you’re a 32D and there are no 32D bras in stock. Well, you can go down a back size and up a cup to a 30E, or up a back and down a cup to 34C. This means there are now three options of bra for you to try! How much easier is that! So again, here’s the mantra “Down a back and up a cup; up a back and down a cup”
You are well and truly welcome 😉
Please feel free to share this with all the ladies in your life as it is the most useful bra shopping tip I’ve ever been given.
