Hi there Choice community,
I would lik to ask the community if they ha e ever face the same problem that I have had for the last 6 or so years, and especially now with COVID19, not being able to try on underwear.
For the last 6 or so years, I have had a lot of problems trying to find a bra that actually fits. In the real world, there is little choice to find a comfortable bra that fits. Most of the bras that I have bought are made in China, and for some reason the cups will fit, but when it comes to being able to fit the bra around my body, it is far too short!!
As I am an older aussie, I am flabbergastered at the lack of comfort available. Bras either have underwire (which is not very good for the health of the breasts) or only last a month or so.
If I go to the “specialist” stores, there is no good fitting bras that doesn’t need an “extender” to fit. Even if I do get help from a bra fitter, she often can only offer me 1 or 2 choices.
I measured a couple of bras I recently bought (adn subsequently returned) and there was a massive 2.5 - 3.5cm difference in the width of the bra. The straps are too short to and there is sometimes little difference in the width of the bras (as in the width around the chest) from one size to another.
Am I the only shopper in Australia eho is experiencing difficulty in finding anything that actually fits now?
