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.
At the time, our sizes were 28FF and 30GG and the struggle felt tricky enough. There are many of you beautiful ladies out there who need a 26 band and my word it's not even tricky to find bras that you love, can afford and feel beautiful in, it's almost impossible.
