Where Can I Get Fitted For A Bra?
There are many reasons why you may have finally decided to take the plunge and get a professional bra fitting. Maybe you’ve noticed that your bras simply don’t look or feel quite right lately, you lost weight or recently gave birth. 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. If they do, booking a bra fitting may be smart if you’re stopping by during a busy time or have a limited window of time to stop by (keep in mind that most fittings take at least 30 minutes).
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.
Don’t forget to check the store’s return and exchange policy before buying any bras. And while you’re at it, you can also ask the staff member who helped you if she has any tips on caring for your new purchases — after all, washing and storing your unmentionables with the right tactics helps to prolong their longevity.
Now that you know all the perks of getting professionally fitted, it’s time to find a store near you and make the trip. Then take a peek in your wardrobe (and your lingerie collection) so you’re armed with some ideas about what you want to shop for. A bra fitting is simply a necessity when it comes to being a woman, but it doesn’t have to feel like a chore. Armed with some knowledge about what it entails, you’re primed to enjoy the experience from start to finish.
