As you know, from time to time I’m approached by companies to try out products. Normally, I pass those opportunities along to you guys – but this time I couldn’t resist. I was approached by Triumph to have an over-the-phone bra fitting and to be sent a sample of their product.
When they originally contacted me I was in full #30before30 swing. I was going to the gym 4-5 times per week and was noticing that my current bra wasn’t cutting it. (read – skipping, push-ups and burpees were a v-neck t-shirt disaster/peep show).
Apparently 64% of women are wearing the wrong size (and almost 30% of them do this knowingly). This isn’t shocking to me. I was. And I was. It’s REALLY hard to resist a $5 La Senza deal.
I was sized over the telephone by a sweetheart in Toronto. It was easier than I thought… one measurement, two measurements, sized. I was wearing a size WAY OFF from what she suggested I should be wearing. (See fact above).
At the end of the call it was decided that she would send me a sized sports bra (a thing I didn’t know existed). I was surprised when my bra arrived that she had also send along the Amourette bra and panty set. #winning
They fit me like. a. glove. It was INCREDIBLE. I was instantly more confident and most of my shirts fit me better than they did before.
Here are some signs you’re wearing the wrong size:
— Your straps are digging into your shoulder.
— Your straps are falling off your shoulder.
— Your underwire is sticking out.
— You’re “spilling out” – you know what I’m talking about.
— The center of your bra (between the two cups) does not rest perfectly on your skin.
— The band keeps moving up in the back – or – the strap is causing an ugly bulge.
You can be sized almost anywhere – even over the telephone. Feel free to contact an expert Triumph Bra Stylist at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full disclosure – of course these bras were sent with their compliments. Since receiving them, I have purchased 2 additional Triumph bras (available locally at Sears and Lillianne) because I seriously love them that much.
