Here I go again, showing off my bra all over the internet. Will I ever stop?!
As you guys know by now, a few months ago, Debenhams invited me to take part in their #knowyoursize campaign. Research shows that as many as 8 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra, which not only has a negative effect on the way your silhouette looks under your clothes, but can cause serious discomfort as well. Sometimes, the thought of going for a fitting can be a bit of a drag or even a little intimidating, but my own experience at Debenhams was neither of those things. My fitter was both knowledgeable and friendly, and getting measured really took no time at all. Oh, and just in case you were under the impression that you have to go bra-less in order to get measured - you don't. That's a total myth. So if it's been a while since you were last fitted, maybe it's time to think about checking your size. If you're based in the UK, Debenhams really is a great place to get it done - I honestly can't say enough good things about my own experience there. In the meantime, you can always check out their online guide.
In order to help promote the importance of regular bra fittings, Debenhams have also very kindly offered to gift another bra to one of my UK readers. This time, it's the Triumph Modern Bloom Bra*.
A full cup, underwired bra with no padding, this is the kind of lingerie I'd probably never pick up in a shop, dismissing it as a bit "frumpy" looking. However, when I took a closer look at this one, I could see that the quality of the fabric and the lace detailing was actually very good. And, when I tried it on, I was surprised by how pretty it was. Although it is a full cup bra, the whole top section is sheer lace, meaning that it really comes into its own when worn as you get that lovely contrast between the opaque and sheer sections. In fact, it's actually quite sexy.
It features a 3D flexible wire, which is supposed to provide three times the comfort of a regular wired bra. It certainly is comfortable, with no "digging" even when worn throughout a (very!) long work day. It also feels incredibly supportive for a bra with no padding, which I think must be down to the additional lining on the lower cups and side sling. In short, it's a great one, and I always think you can never have too many black bras, especially at this time of year, when we all tend to wear a lot more darker clothing. It doesn't come with matching briefs, but anything black and a little bit silky will work beautifully with it.
