You don't have to match your grandmother's underwear to find the correct size
Moving onto a personal subject here, but people need to be informed! Are you a size D or larger? If not, skip this blog post, if you are, read on.
My life changed when I found Bravissimo in Scotland. I have always been struggling to find the correct bra size, and the few times I have done so in Norway my wallet and VISA card have needed respiratory aid afterwards. Having larger than average boobs isn’t easy, and not having the right support for your girlies can lead to quite a nightmare. Not having the right support in your every day life leads to backaches, stooping postures and insecurity when it comes to clothes. Adding an active lifestyle to the mix, creates even more challenges. If you don’t have larger than average boobs (but decided to continue reading after all) let me try to explain what it feels like. Hang two bags of sugar, the regular type you find in the store of about 1 kg, over around your neck. This is the weight of someone with about an F-cup. Walk around with that for a day or two? How do you think it feels? Now try running. Or jumping. Now, imagine that you have nerves inside those bags as well, and than the bags of sugar also feel the pain of the bouncing. Wearing the wrong bra can feel just like that. And for all these reasons, and so many more, it is thus so important to find the correct bra size.
Next time you’re going to Britland (somewhere in Great Britain) look up a Bravissimo store and get fitted. Getting fitted doesn’t cost anything, and the bras cost a lot less than they do in Norway. You can also chose from a variety of different lingerie sets, and they now also have their own clothing line. For me, the Bravissimo stores are reason enough to go to Britland. You can find the different stores here.
Dick&Daisy have a few Freya sets available now, and a few lingerie shops also have a few sets from brands such as Fantasie and Panache, but they are seriously expensive, and there is not much to chose from.
If you already know your bra size I recommend the Bravissimo online store, but if you are insecure about your size I would absolutely recommend a fitting.
