Time to get the girls sorted out
Been to a party and felt you had to adjust your bra like a hundred times? Can't wait to take your bra off when you get home from work? Found you've got quad-boobs? Double the cleavage since your bra doesn't seem to hold you the right way?
Then you're probably wearing the wrong bra.
Over the weekend I learned what it's like to wear a bra that actually fits! One of my friends hosted an Intimo Bra Fitting Party - now I don't know if you've been to one but this was my first. At first, I thought yeah, yeah just another Tupperware-like selling party. But it's so much more! The 'party' starts off with a brief intro to Intimo, what they do and who they partner with (yep, the company has a broad social conscience too!). They have a line of amazingly, gorgeous bras that you can't help but want everything. Unfortunately, my pockets don't run that deep. But a purchase of one or two is fairly doable and definitely an investment. As they will not only fit you properly and actually support you, they're made to last.
After introducing us to Intimo and their many products, we were treated to our own at-home (well, in this case, my friends' house) bra fitting. I've always found the bra shopping experience incredibly painful - long queues and fitting that isn't right only to end with a bra that is just as irritating and doesn't fit. Well, not anymore.
Our Intimo stylist was a lovely lady and then took each of us into the bedroom for the bra fitting. Inside is one of her suitcases filled with...yep, you guessed it, bras! Of all colours, makes and sizes from A to G. With 12 years experience, she'll probably already guess your size but to be official she'll take your measurements. It's surprising, how many of us don't know our proper size. I've spent more than a decade wearing a bra that was one to two sizes too small for me. It's like online shopping with your purchases shipped directly to you except it's even better because you get personalised service.
You learn more about your breasts than you ever knew - did you know that if you don't wear a bra when exercising the breast skin can stretch from bouncing up and down which is irreversible without surgery? Or that bras that aren't tight enough the friction of them moving around next to your skin can cause irritation?
It's time to take breast health seriously and look good doing it! Got an upcoming hen's party, birthday, an afternoon tea or brunch with the girls? Then you've got the perfect setting for a bra fitting. Make sure to bring the champers out too.
Intimo also offers beautiful clothing, and like their bra range, are made to last!
I cannot help but rave about my Intimo experience, wearing a new bra today, I feel like a new woman. You can book your own Intimo party too (hosts are also treated to a special discount and sometimes, depending on how much gets bought at the party, you can score some freebies)
