I’ve had a busy couple weeks seeing clients, and three of them were wearing the wrong size bra. When I pointed it out to her, one of the clients made an appointment with me immediately to go to a specialty store to track down the right size. The result: In her new bras, she was thrilled to see that she looks much slimmer and more defined through the torso. Who doesn’t want that?
The other two clients are in the process of losing weight and don’t want to get new bras. I always encourage clients to get new bras along the way. You don’t need many (maybe just one or two) and they don’t need to be expensive. But a bra that really, really fits is key to looking great.
Wondering just how to get that bra? Well, your best bet is to go to a store that specializes in fitting bras, like Sylene, in Washington, DC. But it’s also a good idea to be armed with some basic information. And here’s what inspired this post today: a fantastic overview of bras and bra fit, a guest post at the wonderful Already Pretty by K-Line. Don’t miss it!
Oh, and take a minute to leave comment — I’d love to know your favorite places (online and off) to buy bras and other lingerie.
