Did you know that something like 80-85% of women are wearing the wrong size bra (according to Wikipedia, anyway)?
And also completely understandable, given that it’s next to impossible to figure out what size you are without a for-real professional fitting (for me, anyway).
I’ve gone for a professional fitting before, but the thing about pregnancy is that there are some (major) ups and (equally major) downs, and after everything has settled down – so to speak – what you end up with is a drawer full of bras in four or five different sizes with no idea in the world which one you should actually be wearing. Seriously, I own everything from Bs straight through to Es (from my post-partum days), and while I obviously can tell which ones totally don’t fit…there are a whole bunch that, you know…kinda do.
But not really.
But I wear them anyway.
(How pretty is this?!)
Last night I got a fitting at a Wacoal event, and: oops. The bra I had been wearing as my go-to (one of the few that I was fairly positive actually fit me) was off by…well, a lot. Like, a really lot.
Honestly, give a professional fitting a try: wearing the right size does wonders in terms of how you feel, how your clothing fits, your posture – everything. I know, it doesn’t seem like it’d be that big of a deal, but trust me on this: it really makes a difference.
P.S. I tried on this t-shirt contour bra, and it is awesome and comfortable and highly recommended.
