Us busty ladies know that shopping for bras has always been a pain. You’re faced with unflattering colours and shapes, and fitters who try to squeeze you into whatever the biggest cup size their store offers. We’ve all been given ludicrous sizes, often featuring a band size that is far too big and a cup size that is far too small.
So, when I was one of the rare people to lose weight during Coronavirus lockdowns and began noticing my 30GG bras were no longer fitting, I knew I had to make an appointment with Attollo.
I had previously encountered Attollo through a virtual fitting with the wonderful Fleur. She confidently and kindly walked me through all elements of a well-fitting bra, even giving advice on other brands and the bra I owned at the time. Knowing how much my body had changed due to weight loss (and the stress of planning a wedding during this tumultuous year), I knew I had to book in another fitting (after all, Attollo advise to do so every 6 months, especially with body changes).
I ended up having a Zoom fitting with the wonderful Elsie, who was overseen by Fleur for additional advice during her training. She walked me through the fit of the bra I was wearing (a 28H), showing me how the straps should fit, how the cups were sitting, and what size she would advise I buy in the future (even though it was a different brand!). She then recommended a new Attollo size: 28HH, prompting me to buy the Lily bra and matching Gigi high waist briefs in the gorgeous champagne shade.
After waiting with excitement, my package finally arrived. I rushed to try it on, adjusting to the firm, supportive fit of the Attollo bra.
I also booked in a Fit Check, which was once again with Elsie, who showered me with compliments, thrilled to see how uplifted I was in the new bra.
