Tips for “the girls”
Blogging Part 3 // maintaining your blog
Oh hey. thanks for stopping by my blog today! Are you a male? That’s so nice that you read my blog! You may find little to no interest in today’s post, so feel free to click away from my site. I’d highly recommend sites like ESPN, Golf.com, or maybe even Barnes & Noble (possibly the aircraft section?). Thanks, see ya around!
There is a pretty good chance I am way late to this party, but have you ever gotten a proper bra fitting?
The whole idea came from a client of mine who told me about a boutique in Raleigh that she wanted to go to in order to get fitted, and it got me thinking about doing that myself.
So when my mom and I walked past a boutique in Chicago last week and she turned to me and said, “You know, I’ve always wanted to get a bra fitting. . . ” I interrupted her and said, “ME TOO.” So we walked in and got fitted.
We were each set up with a consultant, and brought back to private rooms. The consultant chatted with us for a bit about what we were looking for, and then left to find bra options, or “broptions” if you will.
The only thought that was going through my head was: Sure hope my girl doesn’t read my blog because. . .that could get awkward.
Lets keep it in the stranger zone.
My bra consultant brought in about 7-9 different bras, and a lot of them had beads and flowers and lace and studs and junk all over them. Not my style.
I said, “plain and nude please. I wear t-shirts all the time. I don’t want it to be visible under my clothes.”
She relented and found, in her opinion, the most boring bra’s in history which were perfect for me.
If I’m going to invest in a high quality bra that I’m going to wear almost daily, I want it to be plain and nude, so I can wear it with everything.
After trying on a few different sizes, shapes, styles, and patterns, we settled on a really nice nude one that fit perfectly.
So, here is what I learned about bras:
1. It’s better to focus on fit than the “size” you think you are.
2. A properly fitting bra can do wonders for your silhouette.
Go get fitted! I recommend investing in at least one really great quality bra. You can pay anywhere from $60 to $150, depending on the brand or where you buy, so be prepared to spend a little bit more than usual on one. I’d say the best place to get fitted would be a specialty boutique, but do some research and see where you can get fitted in your area.
