For as long as I remember I’ve always been the friend with big boobs. Something I have absolutely no problems with at all, in fact I love them! They are part of what makes me ‘me’.
Fashion and underwear have always been a big passion of mine. I love to have cute, fashionable and sexy clothes and underwear. Some for each occasion if you will.
So I thought it was about time I created an outlet to share my fuller bust recommendations, style tips and my opinions with you all.
So welcome to The Fuller Bust Diaries!
Today I wanted to chat about bra fittings, online bra fittings to be exact.
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I recently had an online bra fitting, if you don’t follow me on there, why not? Go on, go and follow me now! Haha on a serious note if you don’t follow me over on Instagram I’m felling you all about it now.
“An online fitting you say? How is that even possible?”
It all started out when I was starting to feel rather uncomfortable in my current bras, I just had a feeling something wasn’t quite right.
So off i went to look into fittings, I mean proper fittings, not those ones done with a tape measure as quite frankly they aren’t ever right. I even had one well known bra fitting service tell me I was 3 back sizes bigger and cup sizes smaller than I actually was when I was younger! At the time I was a 32F and they tried to fit me as a 38D or something silly!
Anyway back to now. I was introduced to the wonderful Katie (the bra whisperer) at Curvy Kate. Because of all this lockdown malarkey the lovely Katie helped me online and said once this was all over we would have a proper fitting face to face.
And just like magic she absolutely nailed it!
So how did it work?
Ladies here’s the basics, I chatted to the wonderful bra whisperer about a few things – how my current bra fitted, the bra size I was currently wearing, my dress size etc then she asked for a few photos. One from the front, one from the side and one from the back (top tip, take this in the mirror because it’s easier – trust someone who had a nightmare getting one). Once she had the photos she then advised me on the best size for me would be.
Then off I went to Curvy Kate to order a few bras to try! They have a fab sale on right now, shop it here.
To my absolute wonder she was spot on, the bras I ordered fit PERFECTLY.
That is with the exception of one style, which I needed the next cup size up. But she also advised me this one came small in the cups so I kind of expected that one.
Once the bras arrived, I then sent a few more shots over to the amazing Katie for her to check they fitted correctly. Which she confirmed that they did indeed fit amazingly! She completely transformed me from a 36E/F that I was wearing to a 34G! Which I never thought I would need that size but it fits incredibly! See below for the embarrassing before and after photos!
Throughout the whole process she was so supportive and understanding, it really was a wonderful experience.
To this day I’m still gobsmacked at how comfortable and supportive the right size bra really can be. And not to mention how amazing your cleavage looks in the right size! It makes you feel so sexy and confident!
The bras featured in this post are the Curvy Kate Victory bra in petrol and the Curvy Kate Sparks Fly bra. Both of these bras are super comfortable and fit amazingly, giving the right amount of support and lift! If I’m honest the Sparks Fly set is easily one of my faves, because every woman deserves some sparkle in her life!
