 Bra Shopping Tip

We get it, bra shopping can be hard work and it's time consuming.

But seriously, it's worth it to invest a little time in the change room trying on different bra styles and sizes to get one that you love, and not scooping the first bra off the rack, hoping that it will be ok.

Trying before you buy pays off. Why? Because styles and sizes can vary A LOT from one lingerie manufacturer to another.  For example, a 36C in one brand rarely if ever fits a 36C in another brand.

Best Tip - always try before you buy.
