What I Wore Wednesday: Debenhams Bra Fitting Event

Finding a bra that fits right is SO important. The right style, size and fit of bra can completely change your silhouette. Luckily Debenhams is helping y'all discover your perfect bra fit with the help of its expert fit service. From now until Saturday 26 April if you have a free bra fit in store you receive £5 off when you spend £30 or more on lingerie!

Debenhams trained bra fit specialist will help you find the right sized bra for you. Whether you are looking for occasion wear, lingerie or everyday bras. There is a huge range of brands in store including Ultimo, Fantasie, Freya, Triumph and Debenhams own brands Ultimate, Gorgeous and Spirit.

I went in myself and had a fitting with the lovely Shaniece who fit me into the perfect bra for me with the first style she showed me.  I'm notoriously picky about bras. I'm a busty girl and I hate when bras that give the support I need, squish or flatten my shape. I've good big boobs and I want them to look big--is that so wrong?  Shaniece found a bra that flattered my shape and gave me the support and comfort I need; it turned out I've gone up to a 34G but your size can vary bra to bra.

Debenhams Gorgeous Back Smoothing T-Shirt Bra gave me the round shape I love, but with added support from underwire and the wider back straps. The back straps also totally smooth out and lumps and bumps that can appear with skinnier straps. It is super comfy and if I'm honest I was totally surprised how much I loved it. The Debenhams Gorgeous ranges is designed specifically for those of us in sizes D and up and totally combine support and style. 

Shaniece suggests you get fitted every six months and always get fitted if you are trying a different style. You can get more wear out of your bra by moving in to the inner hooks as your bra stretches, too. Who knew?

The Debenhams event ends this Saturday so be sure to get in before to get £5 off a £30 spend! You can't beat that now can you?


Are you loyal to one brand of bra or do you have lots of different styles and brands?
When was the last time you had your size checked?



Let's be friends! Find me here:
Bra fittings at Debenhams are free! Transatlantic Blonde was provided a bra, but all opinions are our own.

I totally agree on finding the perfect bra, and that place is just amazing!!! Thanks for sharing the debenhams bra fitting event!

I just got a bra fitting here at a nice boutique in San Diego and was kind of shocked at my current size (I have not always been busty). But it's so nice to have bras that fit/support well and are also cute. The one you got sounds fantastic! And it is certainly NOT wrong to want your big boobs to look big. I think everyone wants their boobs to look big -- otherwise Victoria's Secret wouldn't sell any of those add-two-sizes bras!

I really need to get my bra size checked - I've lost weight and the bra feels saggy now. I've been invited to this event in London, but am on holiday at the moment so won't be able to get there.

Melaina25 said...

thanks for hosting...I have been thinking about new bras for a while and I'm checking this company out for sure!

Melaina25 said...

A bra that's fitted for you is heavenly! Okay maybe that's a little dramatic but it does feel really good :)

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

Oooh there is no greater feeling than that new bra kind of feeling! I really should go along and get measured myself with losing weight recently. Thanks for the reminder!

Melaina25 said...

I've never had a bra fitting and has no idea you should get one every 6 months!

Melaina25 said...

You are so right! I got fitted about a year ago and it has made a huge difference. Hope you're feeling better!

It's incredible the difference a good bra fitting will make to how your clothes fit and also how I feel about my boobs in general! I tend to go to Rigby & Peller for fittings and they are also bang on (and I then buy online at Figleaves or Bravissimo etc). Thanks for hosting doll! X

Melaina25 said...

i've never actually had a proper fitting, but this is making me think i should go and get one! it does seem like a very important thing to do.

Bra fitting is a pain in the butt. At least 70% of the women in the world wear the wrong side, from what has been studied.


A very nice post. Thanks for sharing and for the awesome link up. Hope your little boy is doing well.

I've been meaning to get a fitting lately but haven't had a chance. Thanks for the reminder!

Melaina25 said...

I've never had a fitting but the older I get...the more I realize I could be a lot more comfortable. Maybe it's time!

Melaina25 said...

Great post.

haha, you have the opposite problem as me. I have a tiny chest, and Victoria's Secret will only ever sell me pushups so that I can look bigger. But I always feel like they aren't quite as comfortable as unlined bras, so I just can't really buy anything from there. It's pretty sad.

It's a shame the person who fitted my last bra from Debenhams didn't do such a good job....

Melaina25 said...

I only just had a bra fitted last year :D it changed my life :D

Melaina25 said...

Makes such a difference!

Melaina25 said...

Oh no-- did you go back? They told me I could go back if anything was wrong or didn't seem right.

Melaina25 said...

Lol it's all good :)

Melaina25 said...

Gotta love a bra that fits right!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks!

Melaina25 said...

Def. get a fitting so you are comfy and get the most out of your shape!

Melaina25 said...

Do it! It doesn't take that long.

Melaina25 said...

Totally not a pain if you get help :)

Melaina25 said...

It's a great deal!

Melaina25 said...

I'm not a fan of VS if I'm honest! I'd try Nordstroms for a "proper" fitting.

Melaina25 said...

You should def. get it done!

Melaina25 said...

Get it done :)

Melaina25 said...

Really? We don't have a Nordstrom where I am, but I'll definitely check them out the next time I'm in the States!

Melaina25 said...

Gorgeous bras, I love Rigby & Peller for the perfect fit but that looks fab! Congrats for your style nom! So excited Mummy's Got Style has been nominated too! x
