Tonight I am posting about something I haven't posted about before...Underwear! I know this is a little different to my usual offerings but as it's been a little while since I last posted, I wanted to keep things fresh by easing myself back in with something new.
I think it's safe to say that we all love shopping for nice new underwear. Whether your fave bra has become a little tatty or you're just looking to suprise the boyfriend, the look and feel of new underwear can be just the boost (quite literally) that we're in need of. BUT!! As gorgeous as that new push-up bra can make you feel, it's important that you get the right fit otherwise all of that money and effort you've put in to look and feel good is really going to waste. Now we all know that there's no defying age (or gravity!) but wearing the right size and shape bra for your chest will make a difference in years to come!
This week I was invited to the Marble Arch La Senza store in London to have a bra fitting and view their new 'Bodykiss' range. If you haven't been to the Marble Arch store yet then you need to check it out - there's so much product choice and the changing rooms decor is AMAZING! Think retro/50s pin-up girl and a whole lotta pink. I was measured up by the lovely Paulina and Vicky who were so friendly and really made me feel at ease. They first measured my chest size and then the cup size using a tape measure and their conversion charts. If anyone is concerned/self conscious about being fitted, you honestly have nothing to worry about - it's pain free and you can even keep your bra on! Once I had been measured, Paulina and Vicky asked me which styles of bra I like wearing and then set off to have a look around the store to find me the perfect bra. I tried on a few different styles but decided that the 'Show Off' balconnette bra fitted me the best. La Senza kindly gifted me a set and I chose this pretty nude and lace set with diamante's as it will go with anything and is also multi-way (can be worn strapless/halterneck/cross-back etc):
Look at the gorgeous gift wrapping!
If this post has inspired you to get fitted for a new bra, I really would recommend heading over to La Senza. Not only will you be able to get measured free of charge, the staff are also trained to advise you on how the bras should fit to your body and a few simple checks that you can do to ensure you have chosen the right bra. Don't forget to check out their new 'Bodykiss' range also. The range 'marries convertible plunge frames with seamless cups and super smooth fabrics for a sexy and streamlined silhouette'. Bodykiss sets are availiable in a variety of colours and each bra features invisible push up technology for extra 'oomph'! You can view the full collection in stores now or at www.lasenza.co.uk. Here's a sneak peak:
