Finding the right bra for you can make a huge difference to your life. When your bra fits well, it provides you with the support you need to keep you comfortable and looking great. Take care of your breasts with a well fitting bra.
Here at Bare Necessities Derbyshire, we’ve been helping ladies to find the right bra for them for over 20 years. Our bra fitting service is a personalised service that offers you the opportunity to find out what size you really are and to try on a wide range of beautiful bras to suit your shape.
Your bra fitting is all about making sure you’re wearing the right bra for your shape and size. That’s not all though; it’s also a chance for you to shop and update your wardrobe with some really beautiful pieces that will help you feel more comfortable and confident. Many ladies see their bra fitting as a pampering experience, and we’re here to help you feel as relaxed as possible.
During your fitting, you’ll have a personal fitter who will start by measuring you. She’ll ask about the bra size you currently wear and what you’re looking for in a bra.
Once you’ve been measured, your fitter will bring you a selection of bras to try on just to check the measurement and to find a style that is most comfortable for you.
Then, it’s time to shop! Your fitter will guide you around our range of gorgeous lingerie, picking out items that will give you the best fit, security and comfort based on your size and shape. There’s no time constraint on your fitting either; feel free to browse the shop for as long as you’d like, and we’ll be on hand the whole time to help you.
Some ladies really enjoy going for bra fittings and see them as a chance to pamper themselves. There are also ladies who feel a little nervous of bra fittings, especially if they don’t know the person that’s fitting them and haven’t been fitted by them before.
Our team of bra fitters here at Bare Necessities understands the feelings you might be experiencing during a bra fitting. You needn’t worry though; our shop has a lovely homely feel and there are individual fitting rooms situated on each level. You’ll feel more like you’re having a fitting in your own home than in a shop.
Our bra fitters are all ladies with years of experience in fitting bras. Our fitting service is available to all ages and sizes. We also advise ladies who have undergone surgery and stock a range of mastectomy bras and swimwear too.
Wearing a well fitted bra does wonders for your comfort, health and confidence.
You’d be amazed how many ladies are wearing a poorly fitting bra. It’s not uncommon for us to measure a lady and find that she’s been wearing the incorrect size entirely for years.
The reason this tends to happen is simply that we’ve always worn that size. Perhaps we had a fitting when we were younger and we’ve stuck with that size, forgetting that our breasts change over time and that the size can change too.
That said, your breasts won’t change significantly – unless you become pregnant or undergo surgery – so a good bra fitting is an investment you can benefit from for many years to come. A well fitted bra will:
There are a few basic questions you can ask yourself about your bra to work out whether you need a bra fitting:
1) Does my underwire sit away from my chest wall?
Your underwire should sit flat against your chest wall, so any deviation from this is an indication that you’re wearing the wrong cup size.
2) Do the cups of my bra fully cover my breasts?
Your breasts should fill the cup and not bulge at all over the top or sides. If you find your breasts are overflowing or your cup is not filled, you’re wearing the wrong size.
3) Is the strap of my bra sitting horizontally across my back or riding up?
The back strap of your bra is designed to sit horizontally across your back in order to provide the best support. If it’s riding up at all, you’re wearing the wrong size.
Even if your current bra feels comfortable now, you’ll be amazed by the difference when you invest in one that fits you properly.
