We’ve expressed to you the importance of bra fittings a few times. Wearing a bra that doesn’t fit correctly can actually have an affect on your body. Seriously, wearing the wrong size can cause headaches, back pain and even indigestion. You can avoid so many problems by just taking ten minutes to get fitted.
You can get fitted at pretty much any shop that sells bras from Victoria’s Secret to the bra section at Macy’s. Where you go is up to you (I will say I loved my experience at Intimacy!). The important thing is that you just go! Now, even though getting fitted is totally worth it and you should definitely do it, the awkwardness of bra fittings is still present. I mean, you have a stranger touching your boobs. It’s weird.
They Touch You
If your fitter isn't touching your boobs, they're not doing it right. I know that's weird, but they need to touch you, touch the bra, make adjustments, etc. If they're just looking at you, they can't get an accurate read on how a bra fits you. If you're doing a holistic fitting, you're going to be poked and prodded the whole time, but it really works. Just accept that your boobs are going to be touched and moved around!
Bra fittings don't take that long, but they take long enough to accumulate a strange amount of small talk. You have another woman fondling your boobs so you definitely want to have some kind of conversation to break the awkwardness. Just remember that this is her job, and she sees like a billion boobs a day. She doesn't care.
You're Just Hanging Out
Since we don't often walk around topless (I don't know your life), just chillin' with your boobs out can be kind of uncomfortable. And a little cold.
You're Very Aware Of Your Armpits
When someone is reaching and measuring around you while you have your arms up, you become really aware of your armpits. Did you shave? Did you wear enough deodorant? Did you put it on at all?
You Might Feel Intimidated
Bra fitters do this for a living and know ALL about bras. They know things about bras that you've never even considered. You might feel a little intimidated that you, as a possessor of boobs, do not know all of this information. I felt a little embarrassed that I had been walking around in the wrong size for so long.
You might feel like your fitter is judging your boobs. Don't worry about the unevenness of them or your nipple size. Like I said before, this is their job! They see boobs all the time. And they aren't there to judge your boobs. They're trying to put you in the right bra so your boobs can be their b(rea)st selves!
It can get a little toasty when you stick two people in a dressing room! Boob sweat happens to everyone so if you get a tad warm, don't worry about it.
