Whatever the reason, first thing’s first: Bravo! Getting a bra fitting is a wise decision and comes with numerous benefits. Now the question is:
Where can you get a bra fitting?
Luckily, it shouldn’t be difficult to find a professional bra fitter. Many retailers, especially including both department stores and independent boutiques, offer these services. Moreover, bra fittings are almost always free. Do some research on the websites of stores nearest to you, and if you don’t see any information about bra fittings, call ahead to inquire about whether or not they perform them. You might also consider asking if they offer appointments.
What else do I need to know?
Make sure to leave plenty of time for your bra fitting — ideally, you want to have at least 45 minutes to an hour on your hands to be safe. That’s especially important if you plan to also shop for some new bras — which we absolutely recommend, since your bra size may vary from brand to brand, and the staff member can help you to determine these variances while you’re trying different styles on.
It’s a good idea to wear something comfortable to a bra fitting, but also something you typically wear on a daily basis. That way, when you’re trying on different styles, you can determine what works best with your wardrobe — for example, whether demi-cup bras or full-cup bras make more sense. Whatever you do, don’t wear a button-down shirt or something that’s going to be a hassle to take off and put back on. If you have a special event coming up, you may want to bring the dress you’re wearing to try on some different bras underneath it.
Communication with the professional conducting your fitting is key. For example, feel free to let the staff member know your budget per bra and how many styles you’re looking for. You’ll also want to consider your everyday wardrobe — and fill the fitter in on this information so that they can make more accurate suggestions. For example, if you wear a lot of light colors, that’s helpful for the staff member to know so that they don’t bring a slew of black bras into the fitting room.
