Truer words have never been spoken, Ms. Macpherson; but wearing glamorous lingerie is the second step in turning heads – the first is uncovering your bra size in order to find the perfect fit. A fit synonymous with that of a Herve Leger bandage dress – one that hugs your curves and accentuates your feminine physique in all the right places; one that becomes the BFF of your wardrobe essentials; and one that is, unfortunately, devastatingly difficult to find without devoting quite a bit of time to the task.
Confession Time: Only last year did I finally learn my true bra size. Up until then, I slowed my pace to avoid a lack of support from my bra du jour, and disposed of countless undergarments believing that they had stretched out in the wash after minimal wear. It was only once I tried a full cup size smaller that I realized that I had spent years sporting an unflattering piece that was far too large for my size. Luckily, I corrected my faux pas immediately, and have found that my clothes fit in a far more feminine manner; my posture has improved; and my confidence level has soared.
While I am now in bra heaven, I am actually in the minority, as the majority of women are, indeed, wearing the wrong bra size – and suffering the adverse affects of back ache, neck ache, and discomfort. Panache Lingerie, however, is here to save the day. They’re on a mission to help you find the perfect bra fit via their ultra-creative Bra Fit Challenge and incredibly helpful Fit Guide - both of which I highly recommend investigating for the girl who wants to feel fabulous in every sense of the word.
Tell me, lovers…what’s your bra fit horror story?
