Are You Wearing the Wrong Bra Size? I Was!

This post is sponsored by Wacoal. As always, all of the opinions, ideas, and images are my own.

6 years, y’all! It had been 6 years since my last proper bra fitting. How did I let that happen? When the bands on my favorite bras started clinging too tightly, I knew it was time to visit the Wacoal Outlet at Taubman Prestige Outlets. I headed there in search of some well-needed relief.

Of course, I wanted to hear that there was a better-fitting bra out there for me. But, I also shuddered at the possibility of that news because good quality bras are expensive, and I would need a few. I’m excited to share I found a better fit, and just as important, bestselling basics at full price and fashion colors at outlet prices make it affordable to rebuild your bra collection.

The Wacoal Bra Fitting Experience at Taubman Prestige Outlets

When I walked into the Wacoal Outlet, I was greeted by Rhonda who whisked me away to a fitting room when I mentioned I needed a fitting. By the way, bra fittings are always complimentary at the Wacoal Outlet Store.

I got comfortable in my fitting room before getting undressed (on the top). Once undressed, Rhonda came back into my room with measuring tape in hand to quickly work her magic (the whole fitting took about 15 minutes). What happened next shocked me. Rhonda informed me that I was a size I had never been told before. Gasp. No wonder my band has been pinching my back all year. In fact, women are encouraged to get fit at least every 6 months since weight gain or loss of 5 pounds or more, or pregnancy, can alter your bra size.

Rhonda then started bringing bras into my fitting room. Lots of bras. All kinds of bras.

She brought classic t-shirt bras with the molded cups. These have long been my go-to style because of how smooth and seamless they are under clothing.

She also brought in light and airy lace bras, including a style (the pink one below) that Oprah swears by. I tried on every single bra that my fitter suggested.

4 Fit Points

As I tried on each bra, I watched my fitter do her thing, carefully checking all 4 fit points to ensure a proper fit. She checked the band, the straps, the center gore, and the cup. Every bra in my new size was a hit according to the fit points. I could tell immediately because of how comfortable and supportive they felt.

I usually favor molded bras, but in this fitting, I quickly realized that I had been missing out on something. The sheer lace bras were my favorites because of how they fit and felt on my body. That was a huge surprise for me.

Once I chose my favorite styles, I wanted to explore all the color options, so we reviewed the available options online as well as any coordinating pieces. I decided on the smooth t-shirt and lacy underwire bra from the Embrace Lace Collection (shown above in grey, also available in tons of other colors).

Trust me. If you’re overdue for a bra fitting, the Wacoal Outlet is a must stop. You get a free fitting with a Wacoal fit expert. Furthermore, when you fall in love with a bra, fashion colors are up to 30% less than regular retail prices, and there are weekly special promotions for even more savings. Win-win!

      Perfect, Roshini! Yes, Wacoal carries a few beautiful brown options. I think the ‘pecan’ and ‘chestnut’ colors at Wacoal are the perfect nudes for we brown gals. So, yes go take advantage of this discount on the already amazing prices at the outlet at Taubman.
