Introducing Heather, one of the Bra Fitting Experts at Fenwick Colchester.
With over 10 years experience in sizing lingerie, we caught up with Heather to find out why Fenwick Colchester is the ultimate destination to get fitted this Spring:
Hi Heather! What are the most common mistakes women make when choosing a bra?
Almost every woman chooses a bra which is too loose at the back. Instead, you should always go tighter at the back as all the support should be at the ribs rather than the shoulders. This will dramatically improve comfort and overall posture.
How do you go about finding that 'perfect fit?'
Once a customer has been sized, I never reveal the size of the bra I've chosen. This is because many women have a preconception about what size they think they should be before they've tried it on. Once they've found that perfect fit, I reveal the size and they're often very surprised!
What is your top tip for successful lingerie shopping?
Always bear in mind that different brands have a different fit. Focus on how the fit feels, rather than be restricted to a measurement for maximum comfort.
How can you help with occasion wear?
We realise how difficult it can be to find a bra that works with your outfit, but thankfully we love a challenge! If you have a special occasion on the horizon, such as a wedding or party, we always encourage women to bring in their outfits so we can find a bespoke solution.
What additional services do you provide?
We're proud to offer a Starter Bra service where we welcome teenagers in search of their first bra. Additionally, we provide specialist bras including Sport, Mastectomy and Maternity styles, along with a host of brands exclusive to Colchester. These include DKNY, Calvin Klein, Masion Lejaby and Wacoal.
What if you can't find that 'perfect bra?'
If we've tried every possible option, we can arrange alterations, so we truly cater for every shape and size.
