Getting the Right Fit & Feeling Great!

- Fashion, Outfits

Today I’m going to be talking about something a little different… finding out the correct bra size. I have never been fitted for my bra size probably because it has always been a little bit embarrassing to me. I was always self conscious about it, so I guess I never wanted to talk about it with anyone or even attempt to get sized.

Yesterday I was able to attend one of Kohl’s bra fitting events close to where I live. As I walked into the bra section at Kohl’s, I saw a woman walking around with bras in hand and answering other people’s questions, so I knew she would be the right one to ask for help!

As she was measuring me, she suspected I was wearing the correct band size, but not the correct cup size. So she gave me what she thought would be the correct size… and asked me to try it on so she could see if it was the right fit. And you know what — it wasn’t embarrassing or scary at all. In fact, a bra has never fit so well (and in turn looked so good)!

Now that I felt confident about the size I was wearing, I shopped around to find my favorite styles! There were so many colors, styles and fits, I couldn’t believe it. I found five beautiful bras that fit well and make me feel great! And will be a great variety with any of the outfits I decide to wear.

    75% of women in the world wear the wrong bra size or bra style for them. I feel like at least half of my bras fit me poorly. This post is so true. Great tips and suggestions as usual, Rachel. =)

    I’ve never shopped Kohls for bras before! I might have to do so after I’m no longer nursing, I’ll need to be re-sized at that time I think!

      Yes indeed! I think that was my mistake. The rest of my body has filled out since I was 18/19 so why didn’t I expect to be a different bra size?!?! Silly me! I feel so much more comfortable now!

    In full disclosure, I don’t usually wear a bra. But I do pull one out when a particular outfit would look better with one, and I must say, a bra that doesn’t fit quite right does almost more harm than good!

    Also: these bras are freaking cute. I suppose form is just as good a reason to wear one as function…;)

    My boobs are basically nonexistent so I feel like it is a struggle to find a bra that fits. I should definitely consider going and getting professionally sized so they can give me bras that work for me! Personally, I love Target’s section and bralettes are my favorite to wear. So comfortable!

    I got a bra fitting a few months ago and it changed my life. I had no idea how wrong the size of my bra was! I feel like you aren’t truly dressed unless your garments fit!
