fashion friday. . .anatomy of a bra fitting
have you ever had a bra fitting?
are you over 20?
it's time. . .i know it may be scary and a bit uncomfortable - but it can be life changing. . .in a good way!
i have had three professional bra fittings so far. . .the latest was last week at my local Soma Intimates. A girlfriend recommended it, my current underpinnings were lacking in . . .let's say support. . . so i went in - not sure what i'd find.
i was approached by a young, slender and friendly sales associate (nothing like making me feel old and enormous along with the uncomfortable). . .so i almost chickened out. but she was very nice and I charged ahead -
i told her i needed a fitting and that i was looking for a good everyday bra that can be worn under t-shirts. we discussed what i was currently wearing and headed off to a very nicely appointed fitting room. the moment of dread. . .
but she measured me without exposure and made some recommendations on sizes. we tried a couple different sizes, and then she suggested another style. . .if i told you i heard angels singing when i put it on would you believe me?
people - this bra was PERFECTION . . . it was pretty and comfortable and best of all it put the girls up where they belong. Icing on the cake? Soma was offering a "But 1 Get 1 for 50% Off" deal.
so i picked up 2 - assuring my wonderfully helpful sales associate that i would soon return for a few more - they had 6 colors in my size and style!
but i was not to get out quite yet. . .there was one more miracle to be found. . .vanishing edge panties
without over-sharing - these panties stay where you put them - period. they also give a nice smooth silhouette.
now time and washings will tell the true tale - but i can't stop feeling like a discovered a little treasure.
have you been fitted? how did it go?
be sure to check out some of the other fashion friday link ups!
catch you soon -
