Happy Thursday Swimwear and Lingerie Friends!

To continue the theme of our “Fitting Tip Thursdays”, I have a wonderful video that demonstrates some of the key factors and considerations necessary for fitting a plus size or full-figured woman with the proper bra size.



Strangely enough, the steps are almost identical to those of fitting every one else. The most important being that the client should always feel at ease. I particularly liked the fitter’s admonishment to other fitters to adjust the straps off to the side of the shoulder so as not to “twang” the Lady. Brilliant.

The bra that they are using to fit the model is from Goddess. It certainly fits the model much better, but isn’t overly pretty, which is a shame because Goddess does offer some really gorgeous styles.

Anyhoo, back to the matter at hand. The video skips over the sizing part, so I’ll look the other way too. It was produced by Eveden and they certainly do know a thing or two when it comes to lingerie and beautifully made and fit bras.

Here is their “About Us” page on the website; “We are leaders in the D+ intimate apparel market, offering a whole family of brands, each with their own personality and position in the market. We understand that one size does not fit all and that every woman is different in terms of her size, shape, taste and even how she feels! We offer high quality, fashion conscious lingerie and bra-sized swimwear, which is now stocked in over 5000 retailers, including national and independent stores as well as online across the globe, in more than 30 countries.”

They are the designers behind; Fantasy, Fauve, Freya, Freya Active, Goddess, Elomi and huit8. Each of them ranking pretty highly on my favourites list.

Shall we all watch now? Got your popcorn ready? Let’s begin…

…and what did we all learn today?

Well, I learned that when being fit for a bra the person should always speak with a very anesthetized voice…it lulls the client into a relaxed state, so they can better accept the news that they’ve been wearing the wrong size bra for the past 30 years.

I really appreciated how they went point by point through proper and improper fit and what all the key indicators and red flags were for proper fit. Most people still don’t know how a bra SHOULD fit.

Almost at the weekend people, Start revving your engines… I know I can’t wait to hurry up and slooooow down. I have huge plans to absolutely NOTHING and I can’t wait to get started.



Ps. Darn it… I should probably mention this before I totally forget. There are about a-bazillion online lingerie sales happening these days. I would highly suggest you follow me on Twitter to stay on top of them all!
