where to get fitted for a bra

When was the last time that you got your bra fitted professionally? If you can’t remember, there may be a real problem. Women should get regular fittings for the sake of their comfort and wellbeing. When you put this task off, you’re hurting yourself. So, what on earth is stopping you?

Here are six things that might be holding you back: 

1.  You’re embarrassed.

Heading to a store, walking into a changing room, and taking your clothes off in front of a perfect stranger. It’s likely enough to send some serious shivers down your spine. If it’s been a while since your last fitting, you may find that the very thought of the experience makes your face shine crimson. The fact is, though, that there is nothing to feel awkward about here. Getting your bra fitting sorted is a perfectly normal part of being a woman. The sooner you come to terms with that, the better. It’s just no big deal.

2.  You don’t know what to expect.

What do you imagine a bra fitting will be like? If you’ve never had one, you may think that the whole thing will be weird and hard to handle. The truth is nothing like that at all. When you get a bra fitting, you should feel safe, secure, and happy. The fitter will know all there is to know about choosing the right bra size and figuring out what particular style of bra works for you. What’s more, you can ask them anything you please about the process and how to choose a whole range of bras. If anything, it should be an enlightening and enjoyable experience all around.

3.  You can’t find the time.

You get up, go to work, go to the gym, eat dinner, and squeeze in some TV time before bed. You hardly have time to stop and think, let alone take on more needless tasks. But here’s the thing: bra fittings are not needless tasks. They are essential to you finding the right size and, crucially, feeling comfortable every single day. If you want to put your wellbeing first and make sure that you are as confident as can be, it’s oh-so-important to find the time in your busy schedule to get this sorted.

4.  You don’t think you need a bra fitting.

So, you’ve been wearing the same size bra for as long as you can remember and it seems to work just fine for you. If that’s the case, you may well wonder why you need to bother getting your bra fitted at all? After all, as the time old saying goes, if it’s not broken, why bother fixing it? Well, while your bra may feel okay, there’s nothing to say that it’s actually the right size for you. Many bras may feel okay but could be ill-fitting. This problem will affect the way the bra supports (or, most likely, doesn’t support) your breasts. Plus, you could find that it has a seriously negative impact on the shape of them too.

5. The thought makes you anxious.

The fear of the unknown is perfectly natural. If you’re the type of person who shies away from new social encounters, it’s understandable that you may not be in a major rush to book your bra fitting. The more you avoid this experience, though, the more you will dread it. You could find that you build it up in your mind and make yourself believe that it’s something that it’s not. That is a mistake. Sometimes, the best way to get over a fear – however irrational it may be – is to simply bite the bullet. Once you’ve taken the plunge and gone for a fitting, you should realize that there was nothing at all to worry about.

6.  It’s not a priority at the moment.

Some people put things off and off and then never get around to them. Does that sound familiar? If you’re used to putting things off, you may be doing yourself a disservice. The more you ignore the small tasks and chores that you really should take care of, the more they will pile up. Before you know it, you will have a ‘to do’ list as long as your arm and no time to get everything done. Nightmare. The key here is to not let things get that far. Instead, take things one step at a time and keep things simple. In short, book your bra fitting and just get it done!

Bra fittings are well worth the time spent.

While there may be a million and one reasons that you haven’t had your bra fitted recently, there’s one very good one that you should. Wearing the right size bra will make you feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful. If you want to feel all of the above, there’s no reason to put off the fitting process any longer. It’s merely a case of finding a local store nearby and booking an appointment. Many boutiques will allow you to book online which means that it could not be easier. Good luck!
