So today me and my friend decided to go to Liverpool shopping, I needed bras so bravissimo was on the cards. It was my first ever time in Bravissimo Liverpool (although I have been many times in another branch) and it was a lovely experience. Walking in I was met by the bright smiley faces of staff and a large selection of the Pepperberry range with a selection of bras at the back. Upon arrival I was asked if I needed any help, which is always nice. I then finished looking at the sale bras (I REALLY wanted the bras on my recent lingerie lusts post). So with bras in hand I went upstairs to book my fitting.
Climbing the carpet clad stairs I arrived at the waiting area, beautifully decorated with pink sofas, a water dispenser, images of bravissimo models, magazines and lots of husbands! Despite there being a large que I was told my fitting would be in the next 10minutes. Myself and my less busty friend then waited for what seemed like two minutes until my name was called and off I toddled with my lovely fitter and sale bras in hand to my dressing room.
Every bravissimo dressing room is the same, fitted with a large mirror, silk dressing gown, numerous hooks, a stool and the newest issue of the bravissimo catalogue. The fitter introduced herself (can’t remember her name but she was lovely as all bravissimo fitters are), asked if I had been to bravissimo before, she then gave me a little background to bravissimo to refresh my memory. Then the fitting started. I was asked what size bra I was wearing and how it felt on, she asked if I could remove my top so she could see how my bra fitted. She checked the fitting of my bra and explained that the bra fit fine and that a 28J was my true size. NO TAPE MEASURES I was them asked what my favourite style of bra was, I explained that it was plunge and then off she went on an adventure to the stock room, and may I say a very successful one!
She then returned with a gorgeous tutti rouge bra (reviews to come) and a satine bra (previously reviewed) in white. She asked what I though of them, I thought they were fab! I was asked if I’d like her to pop out when I tried the bras on, or whether she was ok to stay, I asked her to pop out and so she did. First I tried on the Satine bra, I called that it was ok for her to come in. She then adjusted the bra straps and explained it was a lovely fit, which it was, but I already had this bra (see they’re basically telepathic!), next up was the tutti rouge. I had a little issue with this bra, the 28 was simply far too tight. I told her I needed help, she readjusted me then confirmed that I was a 30 back in this brand, she went back to the stock room and returned with the bra in a 30HH. It fit YAY, however I had my eye on a little sale item (maybe next time tutti rouge). I then tried on said sale item and she checked the fit for me. I explained I only wanted to buy the sale bra, she didn’t push me to buy anything else and treated me like a friend. she then told me about the pepperyberry line and after asking my clothes sizes explained I would be a 10sc, she then left me to get dressed and off I toddled with my curvy Kate wild bra in a beautiful bravissimo bag, wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a sticker.
I’ve always had good experiences in bravissimo, they’re always so lovely and make the experience very relaxing, I couldn’t recommend them more. Hope this helped anyone who was thinking about having a fitting!
