What is it about mature ladies and their bras? I was shocked to read in a recent post that many ladies were not wearing their bras during lockdown because they were uncomfortable. It is estimated that over half of British women wear the wrong size bra.
A couple of years ago I took my older SIL shopping to choose an outfit for her GD’s wedding The assistant in the shop was so helpful and eventually an outfit was chosen, but the assistant then tactfully suggested that my SIL should be measured for a bra to go with it. The bra she was wearing slung her boobs at waist level! She is not a well endowed lady so the weight should not be a problem.
My SIL declared that she had been this bra size for years, even though she had dropped two stone in weight. How many women don’t realise that their size changes throughout life, especially after the menopause. I gently persuaded my SIL to go to the lingerie department of a nearby M&S where they usually have a bra fitter. My SIL had been wearing a size 42B bra, but the fitter measured her as a 36D and brought in a few to try on. SIL was amazed how well they fitted and how comfortable they were!!
Once we get out of lockdown I would encourage anyone who is uncomfortable in their bra to get properly measured and buy one that IS comfortable.
