In my last post, I concentrated on the atmosphere in the store, as the joy of the Magic Mirror!
But more important than that, was this:
I have always been a believer that the lingerie is the foundation of the outfit - a gorgeous outfit can be ruined by ill fitting, incorrect underwear.
I have recently altered in size, and was keen to see if I could pick up some well fitting underwear! But I was unprepared for the popularity!!
I was able to speak to a couple of members of staff, and unwittingly pretended to be a customer, which I was, granted, but I did feel as though I should have a 'blogger' sign somewhere on my person!! That is by the by though, and I was keen to talk fitting!
She uttered the immortal words:
We measure the underbust, and then go on the fit of the current bras.
I could have kissed her!!
It was similar to the philosophy of Elomi girls had at PLUS LONDON, and it works. It's using your eyes to work out what is 'wrong' with the bra you are currently wearing, and correcting it. All the staff are trained in bra fitting, and as the changing rooms are, er, roomy, there is plenty of room for you and the fitter to try on and analyse!!
I didn't get fitted as it was MANIC - but I will be getting fitted their in the future! **swoon** Curvy Kate
Much love my lovelies,
