Just dashed myself on the rocks of Debenhams and M and S bra depts.
Here's the issue:
A 36 A fitting needed (not that common)
A partial mastectomy a long time ago means one side about 2/3 of the other.
The only kind of bras that even out the lopsided look are the ones with little pockets inside so that I can whip out the insert on one side and put it in the other side. Wonderbra used to be a reliable source, but technology has moved on... I have a load of BHS bras that just fit but are not really comfortable, and are wearing out and getting less and less comfortable.
Debenhams have a reasonable bra dept. But only one line that suited my needs (Level 2 enhancement apparently !!). Once i had got over the "I don't actually want a mastectomy bra" hurdle. But they didn't fit. Forgot to say, they are wide apart as well.
M and S truly abysmal. Thousands of bras. Eventually located a member of staff (very young) who again suggested a mastectomy bra. Don't want a mastectomy bra thank you.
Seems bras with removable inserts are out of favour and M and S do not a one.
I'm wearing a comfortable 11 year old bra i bought in the States. Wish I had bought a carrier bag full at the time.
Does nobody cater for those with partial mastectomies?
Any ideas GNers?
