Why did I title this post eighty percent, you ask? It’s because 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra size. And yes, I used to be one of the eighty percent until very recently.
The folks over at Le Mystere invited me to head to my local Nordstrom to get fitted and boy oh boy, I was in for a total shock! Prior to the appointment, I thought I was wearing the right size, but I did notice that my bras weren’t laying super flat underneath my clothing. There was a teeny, tiny amount of gapping, but I was stuck in this weird limbo: if I went down a cup size, the bra would be way too small, but if I wore the regular size, I’d see a tiny bit of gapping. I just thought I was in-between sizes, right? NOPE. Wrong. I was dead wrong.
At my bra fitting at Le Mystere, I found out that I needed to go down not one, but two band sizes, and go up two cup sizes. Mind. Blown. The original size I was wearing was way off, by a mile. Oops. Might I suggest that you go in and get yourself fitted ASAP if you haven’t in a while; now that I know my correct size, my bras look and feel way, way better, and I haven’t had any issues with gapping lately!
After we determined my bra size, I got to try on a few bras and figure out which styles worked best for me and my body type. I opted for the ‘Ultimate’ Convertible Plunge Bra and the ‘Infinite Possibilities’ Plunge Bra. I guess I had an unintentional theme of plunge bras here, but those are what worked best with my body type!
Have you ever been fitted for a bra before?
Thank you to Le Mystere for partnering with me on today’s post!
