So funny as I clearly have no idea what a correct fitting is! I think I was so used to wearing bras that were too big for me (no boobs!) that to have one that fits tightly is like a dream!!

I hadn't noticed it didn't fit - I'm rubbish!!

Definitely proves I need a proper fitting.

Yes I did. I measured my self using Charlii's method. As soon as I opened them I knew they wasn't going to fit. The cups look so small. Like my old bras xx I'm not going to get measured properly till I've seen my surgeon again on 3rd March. When hopefully I'll get clear to wear anything. Xx

I popped into debenhams yesterday as they have their blue X sale on, was really excited to start buying wires. After about 15 minutes I got totally over whelmed, and left without trying on a single bra :-(. X

Ahhhh BkozK - I feel the same!!! I got measured in fenwicks yesterday but didn't want to buy anything until bravissimo have measured me! The selection is overwhelming even for soft cups - so I know it must be 10x worse for wires!! I've been on the figleaves website and they do free returns so I think I'm going or order a barrel load of bras to try on at home. Ahhhhh the excitement is actually too much!! Xx

Yep my thoughts exactly, order a few at a time, try them on in your own time plus added bonus you can try on different clothes to see how they look. I'd like to get measured at Bravissimo but the nearest is convent garden and that's a 2hr 2x train journey from where I live. I am going to take a trip to nearest Boux avenue when I get the chance but that's still a 40 drive away and not much fun with a 2 yr old in toe. So online for me for now xx

I would recommend getting yourselves fitted first before buying online, so you know the feel of how its meant to fit. Get the fitter to go through it with you, how much pull the band should have on the first clasp, how tight the straps should be, how the wires should sit, because believe me, its a shock to the body once you know how a bra is meant to fit you properly.

When I bra shop online I tend to get 3 sizes - 34D, 32DD and 32E, so that I've got a good range of sister sizes to try on for comparison and make sure it fits. And always send it back if its not quite right. They're pricey, and to make you look and feel good, they have to fit perfectly. I don't care how cute it is (and believe me, I have to be disciplined at that too!!)

You'd be proud Charlii - yesterday I found the most gorgeous bra - it's a charchol coloured dkny 'custom fit' non wired bra. Took it into changing room and thought it fit like a glove. Called the fitter in who said it looked great. She then called her boss to check who immediately said it was too small. It was a 32d. I thought it looked an amazing fit and annoyingly they don't do any bigger than a d. So tempting to buy it anyway but I walked away!!! Still keep drawling over it online. I clearly have no idea what a good fit is! 

And BkozK - I'm going to Covent Garden bravissimo tomorrow so I'll let you know if it's worth the trip. Luckily it's during my work lunch break so no kids in tow! Xx

I found a nice fit plain black one in triumph ( non wired) bit pricey. I struggled finding a non wired bra.

I think m and s do a good range of non wired. Xx

Thanks Lucy, look forward to hearing about it.

I've been measured a couple of times, before BA and after so got a little idea. Also I've done your suggested measuring guide and will keep in mind sister cups when ordering. Think I may open a catalogue account just for bras so I don't have to pay up front. Thanks Charlii

Mrskelly, non wires aren't that pretty, fairly plain and basic. I do like the 2 pack from debenhams. Tesco do a non wired 2 pack. There both a bit like t-shirt bras xx

Yes I agree, I found them all just plain and boring!!!! I think when you 1st buy a bra you want it all pretty and fancy, them days will come when you get the all clear for wires. Xx

I disagree!! I've found heaps of lovely non wired ones!! They are keeping me happy for now! 

Go on bravissimo website and search under non wired or soft cup. I've got a gorgeous pink lacy non wired one I had fitted today. 

But best selection is figleaves. Again search non wired / soft cup - hundreds to choose from!! But mrskelly maybe wait until u get measured officially.

I got measures at bravissimo today - 30f. Don't think I quite believe them but bought a Freya deco non wired and the pink one in that size all the same! 

Real bras officially make me look like Jessica rabbit! Feel slightly paranoid! Xx

I know - I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry!! At the moment I'm laughing and embracing the big boobies but once I'm out of this macom (with is compressing them) I am expecting a few raised eyebrows and questioning looks as I do look rather different when in real bras. Those 375s have gone a long way :-/ Xx

Bravissimo were brilliant - very professional. Would definitely recommend them for a proper fitting!! The only thing is that it's hard to find bands below a 32 - might have to compromise sometimes I think! Xx

Oh that's a shame, I'm a 28 or 30. Have tried on 32 bands and they seem a bit big and ride up. Going to check out closest Boux Ave next week (taking the mother to keep an eye on little one so I can give it my full attention). Does anyone know if you need to book an appointment? X
