Treating myself prematurely but was in desperate need.

This post is probably more aimed at the ladies on the site who might understand my situation better. After loosing 2 dress sizes I'd promised myself a proper bra fitting as soon as I hit my healthy BMI. Unfortunately, it's been so long with me being close but not quite getting there that I've given in. So £100 down, 2 inches & half a cup size down but 3 bra's up helping everything else rise too. It's so nice to feel like I've got boobs again not empty shell's of what I've lost. Surprisingly no photos to be added for this post.

Let's hope so, it's certainly hard going now. Especially as I'm focusing on exercise and toning so putting weight on with muscle. Or at least that's what I hope is going on and now I'll get there with more support.

It is a bit much but I've tried loads of places and lots of different cheaper ones. However, none of them come close to how I feel in these so definitely worth the extra expense.

I agree. I had M&S bras that look pretty but didnt maintain their "hold" after a few months, and I have two personally fitted bras by Panache and Fantasie that are still doing their job after two years.

I'm sure you feel much better. I went for a bra fitting after just losing one dress size there is nothing worse than an uncomfortable bra.

You are so right, even though I was in size 12 the clothes still didn't look right. Hopefully this will be the turn around in getting use to the new me.

Lots of places will give you £5 off or similar if you donate your old bras to their charity clothes bin. Generally only the expensive bra shops do this. But might be worth checking if you want to go and get a couple more. Well worth the money to have properly fitting bras. Enjoy :)

Ha,☺ I think most of us mature ladies who have lost weight know exactly what you mean about empty shells!

As Gok Wan used to say, you can create a brand new figure with a good fitting bra.

Definitely, have felt a little lost/flat without my attributes. Loved the shape my new bra's give me, confidence and boobs should be back in place now.

Now that I've had a proper fitting I've continued the madness and ordered on line for the 1st time ever from fig leaves. Would never had risked this before, let's hope the gamble pays off.

I have ordered online before and it has worked for me fairly well so good luck!
