On Monday I attended the Wacoal fitting + cocktails event and it was, what I would call, a "life changing experience". You see, I have never been fitted for a bra, nor have I ever enjoyed bra shopping. It's not fun, slightly embarrassing and always yields purchases that don't quite fit but do the job. So on Monday when I learned what my true size was AND tried on a handful of bras that fit perfect -- it kind of blew my mind.
I now know how important it is to be fitted, and by someone who truly cares about finding your true size. The Wacoal team showed me that bra shopping doesn't have to mean wading through picked over semi-annual sale bins, while fending off sales women asking if you want a store credit card with angelic rewards.
However, I was hesitant about the outcome of the Wacoal fitting event. When I was emailed about this event I was asked what bra size I was. I almost didn't know how to answer, as, I didn't really know how to answer. So I responded with a size I didn't really wear, but figured it was probably what I would measure.
When I was first measured by my Wacoal fit expert, I clutched my sauvignon blanc not only out of anxiety but out of slight embarrassment. I wasn't quite sure I wanted to hear what size she told me I was, and see what bras she would bring me that would fit. I feared for the worst.
After taking my measurements, my fit expert handed me bra after bra to try on. After each try-on Kim examined where my fit issues were and determined what needed to be adjusted and why, until finally a perfect fit/size was determined.
I was giddy after trying on a bra's that fit me like they were made for me -- that has never happened. I will now be a Wacoal costumer for life. I love that I can search their website by my perfect size, in order to see what bra's that would work for me. Walcoal also has a hip new B.Tempted line that totally fit my style, as well as lot's of other awesome under garment items.
I'd like to thank the Wacoal team not only inviting me to the fabulous event they hosted at the Prescott Hotel in San Francisco but for teaching me the importance of being fitted for bras. I will now continue to be fitted as my body grows and changes. I hope this post inspires you to check out Wacoal's Fi(gh)t for a Cure Event in your area and find your true fit.
