Buying bras

Post by Lucy106 on 21st January 2016, 7:17 pm

I am very nearly at the exciting stage of trying on a real bra for the first time!! 

I just wondered how to do it... Obviously I'm still at an early stage so what fits at the 6 week mark won't necessarily fit in a few months. So therefore I don't want to spend loads - BUT I also want a good quality bra that will give me support and not ruin the boobs.

I will buy a sports bra or two but I'd also like a couple of less bulky ones to wear out.

How much did u girls spend and what kind of things did u get / how many. Any tips?

First, find the biggest bra department and run around grinning like a kid in a sweetshop with a blank cheque!!

Then reel it in and be realistic. You're right, there's no point going crazy as they will likely change in the next 6 months. Couple of t-shirt bras and one fancy should be plenty to see you through. Find yourself a reputable place for your first fitting. Bravissimo are tops, but if theres not one near you, a Boux Avenue, or a dept store like John Lewis, Debenhams, House of Fraser are the best. Dont just buy the first bra that fits, because it might not be the comfiest. If you've got the time and patience, make a day of it and try a few places. Bras are going to be a bit pricier now, but you can get decent t-shirt bras for about £15. Oh, and measure your band at home before going out so you know roughly where you sit, and can make sure theyre not adding that 4/5" to it!

I was first measured in Boux into their Tatiana range. They put me in a 32DD, and a 34D in a lacier, less stretchy material. I got 3 tees and 2 fancy. It was the start of a terrible addiction!!

I went to debenhams, got a pack of 2 (black and white) non wired bras, can't remember how much but don't think they were that expensive. They have been my most comfy bras other than the genie bras which I wear most days. I also brought a lovely non wire from matalan but that doesn't fit any more and a two pack (again non wired) from tesco which I don't find very comfortable. I am now all clear for wires but have only brought two. Happy shopping xx

Wow challi 50/60!!!

Definatly make a day of it as it takes a lot of time. I spent all day in bluewater going from shop to shop, it's exausting !!!

I 1st brought a non wired one from triumph which cost over £30 only worn it a few times.

Then I was told I was allowed to wear wires and I went crazy. I brought from Ann summers, Victoria secret, Wonderbra m and s etc.

Like the other girls said don't buy too many at 1st ( I no it's hard) as you don't no if you are going to change a bit and it will all be a waste of money.

Happy bra shopping xxx

Thankyou ladies!! Well I've just been for a 'recce' - didn't buy anything but just wanted to get an idea in size. I think 32dd. Took a new avi pic!! It was a lovely bra but had underwires so by the time I got around to wearing those it wouldn't fit anymore.

I can tell my boobs aren't fully baked as nothing feels a perfect fit. I don't fill the bottom half of the cup.

Also I tried on t-shirt bras in m&s and where they have a thin layer of padding I just feel massive in them. Seriously my boobs looked ginormous! Bit worried about that as u surely have to have a bit of a layer to cover nips showing through clothes!!

Anyway next weds when I'm officially 6 weeks I'm going to bravissimo - I have one just a 10min walk from work in Covent Garden. Thanks for that tip!!

Wow wee Lucy !!! Love the new avi. Mind you looking at the bra looks a tiny bit small for you. Maybe you are bigger than that. 
 
Glad you didn't rush in and have a spending spree like me. 

I'm worried incase mine decrease in size. Xxx
